Report article RSS Feed 0.5b2: Doing the thing

A brief summary so people know what's going on and how long we expect to be taking

Posted by zahaqiel on Apr 23rd, 2012

Hey guys,

So 0.5b2, as has been stated previously, is mostly coded. At the moment a lot of us are wedged between mod work and real life commitments so development is on hold (although I'm doing a bit of UI work which I hope to get in by b2 release).

So our current expectations, based off our coder's schedule is we should be doing internal testing in late May, with a probable release in June. Probably.

Hopefully that clears up why we've been a bit quiet lately.

Update (29/6/12):
So that estimate was about two months out. We should be doing internal testing in the next few weeks since we've finally got everything working vaguely how we want it, after which we'll do a release.

No. We're not doing any Dark Crusade work until we've completed the mod. It'd be like creating two separate mods otherwise and we're having a hard enough time just doing the one.

Hi, nice to see the mod is still being worked on! =D Unfortunatly, one of the things that REALLY bugs me is, some of the buildings lack any animation, hopefully they'll be moving soon!
I'd do something about it myself, buuut...i have no clue where to start doing so. Hope to see them shifiting into postion like the other buildings soon. ^^
