It has been a while since the last update and I thought I would give everyone a heads up. Don't worry, no bad news. Perhaps just interesting to know.
The last month I wasn't able to make much progress. Mainly because everything that can possibly go wrong with a computer went wrong with my computer. Software failed, drivers failed, updates failed and even hardware failed. When I finally fixed one thing it caused two other things to break.
The number one issue was that I tried to update my AMD graphics drivers since I was still using drivers from 2013, resulting in some software not performing well. These drivers caused a bluescreen everytime I tried to install them. When I finally managed to get them installed, it turned out that Cinema4D crashed constantly because of these drivers. This has happened with pretty much all latest AMD drivers. So I was unable to make any progress.
Therefore I've now decided to get myself an NVIDIA graphics card instead and installed it into my computer this weekend. So far everything finally seems to work without any crashes or bluescreens. Fingers crossed!
At this moment I'm doing a big cleanup within the project folder and making everything a lot more organized. Once that is done I will be able to work far more efficiently on the mod without any redundant or mundane tasks.
Also Cukier from Mafiascene.com has written a script for Zmodeler (Converting tool for Mafia) which will tremendously speed up the converting process by automatically fixing up all imported materials. So a conversion that would usually require an hour of manual labor can now be done within five minutes. An amazing step forward.
When everything is well organized I will proceed on the corridors. You can expect some screenshots any time soon.
Also Patrik is working on something nice. More info about this is yet to follow.
