Hello our dear followers of the Mod, its been a long time since we talked about some things that actualy are important to the mod , but now we are here to change it.

After nearly 1 month of pointless updates and attemps to keep this thing barely alive we made it on the rail again.
So without further chit-chat we will do the same news like allways.

Today we will cover :
A) The restart of the mod , now goes faster than ever.
B) A few questions i recieved over the past few days.
C) Progress reports

A) Well we have good news and bad news , the bad news is that we have made yet a another fresh start and that means that most of the things might be changed , but on the bright side we are bringing you Tale of Two Cities, better than ever.
All concepts have been tweaked and the story pieces are getting aligned, in fact i think i will relase a new Gameplay video later this month ... Or so.


Q) Is the mod dead ?
A) Well it nearly died last time , but now its back on track.

Q) Are you planing on changing the story ?
A) The story is a little changed now from the original concept but the basic skeleton of the game remains the same.

Q) How far are you ?
A) Since we are restarting the mod we moved closely to 0% again , but few things remain the same so lets say its about 10%

Development is picking up. AGAIN

C) The progress report is currently for some time out of bussines since theres no progress , still we are having a pic of the fresh development as an excuse.

Attention patient fans, after a long silence on the status of our production, we're finally on the verge of a brakethrough, and not just because i finally got my pc cleaned out to support the SDK better. Things are really starting to flow out and we should have some proof very shortly.
Sincerly, Shepherd, aka the team leader

Well "little" little for you and a huge step for me. But the main reason for only 10 is that the maps are not yet compiled , cause the compile process might take up 23 hours (no kiddin)
