New milestones for a new season. We are currently updating our site and reprioritising the news stream. See how this will affect you on moddb.

Robo is currently focusing on working with the environmental props for the maps, and will be making weapons for Kenpachi and Nnoitra. We expect these to be the final milestones for the modelling before the first release.
Animations will follow as characters are completed.
We still have a huge list for the coding, some new challenges have been found and it has been chosen that we need to handle those before a release.
The camera position is being improved and we want to implement a zooming effect when charging a kido attack. So far the dynamic camera position is not considered a part of this milestone.
There will be an UI update, which means that we will be making a new sprite system, as the current system isn't handling scaling very well. With the new system we expect to be able to use png files and fix the scale problem, so the resolution won't be a problem.
Marc Jovani has joined the team and will make the ingame music. The music will be for maps atmosphere, game menu, and other triggered situation. (ex battle) This isn't completely planned, so these are currently able to change.We are seeking a developer to do SoundFX for the character actions and menu items.
At the last meeting we decided that making a lot of post on moddb is quite difficult if we also have to make them interesting. As well are moddb expecting a certain quality; so we can't just write a small update and expect that everyone who got interest for the mod actually see it.
Since we haven't received an application for PR, we have concluded that we will move the focus from moddb to bzsmod.com. This choice has certain expectations and affects.
We hope you will use our forum, as we would love to receive your feedback to the mod and debate the contents.We are currently performing some updates at the site, but expect to complete this transition before October.
