This is a special, short, mid-week development update as Terry was gone lately.

We have uploaded another almost 5 minute video to YouTube of some of our recent playtesting sessions, just to show off some of the latest work being done.

Each time we test the game, it's fun to see the progress - new models being added, new weapons, new animations, issues being fixed, and so forth. Things are looking pretty good overall at this stage, but there are still just a couple of core things we're working on wrapping up.

Also, I want to announce that we're going to have the game development team join an IRC chat channel this coming Saturday for a Q&A session, August 3rd, 2013, at 11 AM CDT, for anyone that would like to stop by and introduce themselves or ask any of us questions.

One of our forum members created the channel and you can find it here: Goo.gl

If you have a few minutes on Saturday, please drop by and say a hi.

The drivers kept running into things and popping them, so they were driving on the rims - which shoot out the sparks and have the screeching noise.

Yes. Someday we'll make objects destructible so that wouldn't work.

the grass seems out of place, perhaps the shading is not on it yet an therefore sticks out. but it could use some variation in height and colour if possible i think.

Loving the look of this so far, and for alpha state its looking like it will have plenty of polish. Keep up the good work guys.

There is still a lot of improvements we'll make to the vegetation. Pretty much everything you currently see will be replaced - we consider the game pre-alpha still.
