Every time I think I'm close to making a new alpha, I find more crap I missed.
OK, so I was wrong before about making it to another release, but this time I can definitely say I will soon be working on the first beta!
It won't be fancy, it won't be perfect, and it most certainly won't include any models, textures, pictures, or even audio of the DMO, they will be using models from both TEC and Advent (so far only one capital ship model and starbase model from the advent, for the Javelin class capital ship and orbital colony starbase)
Right now the wall I'm trying to climb over is that I can't figure out how to make the DMO a fourth selectable race, and I feel like it's something really really simple that I'll facedesk for not noticing it before. go ahead and comment if you know what I have to put and where (file, line, example), thank you in advance.
Once I got it as it's own selectable race, all I need left is to finish laying out and double checking each tree of the DMO's research, as well as their ties with all DMO abilities, ships, structures, etc etc etc, research seems to be the most tedious. THEN I'll have the beta :D
Now then, OFF TO MOD! *pulls up the coding in a totally undramatic way*
