Status update for Equilibrium of the Night. The update discusses the release, guns and the animations from Project Q.

It's April now and Equilibrium of the Night still hasn't released. I know some of you may think that this has something to do with the merging of the areas and some content from the cancelled mods I was working on but this isn't true. The truth is that, is that we are working on implementing Project Q into Celeritas Eos specifically the animations which allow for NPC's to hug and kiss. Asides from this we have been able to implement guns into Equilibrium of the Night after-all. This means that we need to go through the resources in the mod (crossbows in treasure and shops) and ensure that a crossbow remains a crossbow and has the correct model and not the "bag" model used for objects conflicting with haks.
I have never officially announced Equilibrium of the Night though and don't intend too. As I have said before, the ETA's asked for in the comment section should be taken with a grain of salt. You ask me when it'll be finished and I'll be truthful (based on what I believe) but as the several previous times have shown I have always been wrong. As someone here was put it so eloquently, "sometimes finishing the final portions of the mod takes longer than the creation of all the content in the mod itself" and I can back this up. Well this certainly seems to be the case with me and EoTN.
In any case I've been aware of the grumbles and mumbles people have had. One complained about Victory in War being cancelled but it was only cancelled because it has become corrupted. There was no salvaging to be done. I'm not God so I can't do anything and the fact that Celeritas Eos is my prime focus - modding wise - right now meant that I had no time to start over on the content that was lost with the corruption. Seeing as the universe from the cancelled module series wasn't that vastly different (as based on the suggestion of a colleague months ago) I decided it would be best after-all to merge the two settings into one.
So to conclude this release business, I won't answer any comments asking for an ETA anymore and if I do. Just remember to take it with a grain of salt. If it's not announced in an article then it's simply a belief and nothing set in stone.
But let's not fret about this. As each passes, EoTN grows and becomes a better module. The animations and guns being implemented means that the quality of EoTN improves several times over. Finally we have a new team-member, JM_Scion (creator of July Anarchy and the yet-to-be-released Static) who'll help with quest designing, scripting and writing. This means that EoTN's development will be sped up greatly along with future modules.
And if you're still angry and plan on storming our studios then you better be prepared to meet Lord Fire who is truly a forced to be a reckoned with. Not only is his badassery unmatched in Eridanus but his sexiness is so off the charts that simply staring at him for too long causes one to spontaneously combust. Just look at his self-portrait below (just remember to wear sunglasses)...
Oh and please your compliments for Lord Fire's attire below. He's too busy to read personal mail...
As always we are looking for more help. Because, well the more the merrier.
