Hello again community, we were very surprised that our news from Monday enjoyed that much popularity at the beginning. Today however we must realize that everything goes off course. The reactions and comments from some guys of the community have been extremely excessive and insulting. We want to clarify at this point, that the news from Monday was NOT the real May-news, but still a serious hint, that we are also only humans and that not all the things always go as planned.

We hope that you have catched the meaning and are proud to present the real May news!

Originally we wanted to release this news within the next weekend, but to finish all the useless discussions, we have decided to reveal it now! But because of that, we were not able to finish the (in the April news) promised "big thing". We need to delay it to the next month. In return we present you today a very cool video, but first let's start with some new pictures.

This is the heavy Wraith satellite, also called anti-capital satellite.

Next one is a new model of the known Asuran corvette. It now fits to the rest of the new Asuran ships:

Asuran corvette (high-poly)

Important: this is the high-poly version!

Last but not least we start a new series of videos with this news. They are mainly a profile video about the units, as you know it already from the hardpoint layout pictures. Many thanks to Pifroggi, who has joined our team a short while ago. he is responsible for these videos now.

We start today with the X-303:


That is the end for this months! ;)

Greetings,
the SGMG

Ayup.

I suppose it's because the community has started to slack in terms of disciplining the newcomers for their impatience :P

great update guys, patiently waiting. people dont understand that hard work goes into these mods and that people do have lives, its a hobby not a job, you dont get paid to sit behind a computer for 8 hours a day to do this. Cudos to you all!

And oddly enough a lot of mods end up being lightyears better than any "proffessional" game, even more strange that the "proffessionals" complain that there arent enough rescources or the budget isnt high enough...loving the videos, very well done.

I don't see the point in flipping out over that tiny news "blip". It's not like it's a simple thing to make a game/mod... unless you're a Flash game nub. XD

Just a suggestion, but you could start releasing the videos at a separate schedule. Say bi-weekly. That way there's a cool video with every news, and a little "appetizer" in between to keep people happy. Although I am sorry if this would be asking for too much of your time.

I wasn't being impatient, I was just suggesting an idea that might help some of the other impatient people. Compared to their others, these videos seem relatively easy to make. I may be WAY off base of course.

It is still more than enough work. ;)

So 1 or maybe 2 videos per months are the limit.

Look at the "is it done yet" questions on the bright side, its a complement. Yah it is annoy, I myself sometimes struggle not to type "news" or "status" or "progress"?. You guys have something good here and as a ex modder I know how it is. Endless emails from everyone, thats why I figured Merlin started ignoring my PM's months ago (asking about adjusting the number of units etc) and why I haven't sent any since. =0P. Dont take it personal guys, you could make a simple mod progress bar and update it once a month, that should eliminate a bit of the annoying questions. Just put in bold letters "UPDATED THE FIRST OF EVERY MONTH".

i am sorry to say that all work is not usually completed on time before a schedule, or any specific time...
we work when we can. i myself had exams that were important to me, so i didn't get that much done over the last few weeks.
no offense but this isn't our day job...\:

It is simply impossible to make such a bar and to keep it up to date.
The mod consists of so many different parts, models, sounds, codes, scripts, maps and so on, so it is quite useless to say the mod is 50% done. What would 50% mean in this case?
I think nobody can imagine even with such a number, how far we really are. So in the end, such a number is useless.

You guys have done awesome work but can't you tell us how much of the mod you already have completed. Like 15, 50, 70 or 90 percent, so that we can estimate when it will be released. Or maybe release a few upgrades of the mod.
Keep up the good work, it has been awesome so far

The mod is done by...let's say 40%.

Are you now really able to estimate how long it will take to get it completely done? I don't think so...
