The final update for 2007, eh?
It's been a hectic year for Halo: First Offensive... but a year of progress nonetheless. I'd like to thank all of our staff for sticking by us this year and making us the best Halo mod around. It's been a pleasure working with you guys, and I'm looking forward to next year. I simply cannot list the achievements each staff member has achieved this year, as there is just too much that we have achieved this year to fit in a simple update like this.
I'd also like to thank our fans for hanging by us through the year, especially those who signed up on our forums (at Z7.invisionfree.com ) and followed us on Moddb. It's been a difficult ride moving throughout forums and the such, and to know that we have people willing to follow us throughout that time is fantastic. I also want to show appreciation to all those who voted for us during the Moddb Mod of the Year awards this year, as well as supporting us on other forums and websites, as without you guys, this mod wouldn't be as popular as it is today. We want to also extend thanks to the Halo: Homefront team for working with us during the final weeks of this year. (Their forums are located at Z15.invisionfree.com. )
Merry Christmas from the Halo: First Offensive and Ascendancy Studios team! As our Christmas present to you, we decided to throw together a render of the latest units to be completed, and the final units to be shown this year. Each model and skin has been made with care and skill by each of our staff members, which means you get to see only the very best pieces of art or code.
Thank you all for a wonderful 2007, and we hope to have an even better 2008!
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year,
~Freno and the Staff at Halo: First Offensive and Ascendancy Studios!
