I'm keeping some small but rather frequent mod updates through my blog at my user profile, so if you're interested to hear about small updates for the mod, stick you're nose in there!

This way I'll avoid "spamming" in frequent news posts, and keep a little mini-updater where I'll talk about this and that and how progress is going. No media what so ever, just plain text!

So come by!

Thanks for all the great feedback you all have been giving me, it's certainly a morale boost, plus some constructive criticism. It's lovable.

Thanks!

Sorry for the lack of new and media update. I know I promised one, but I have had to hold back due to a lot of dead lines with school work and the indie game I'm part of, Contagion.

But you should all know, it isnt dead =) I'm still sketching out concepts when I'm on my night shifts ( lot of shifts in the summer ), and planning ahed in the levels. So I cant wait until I have the time to get it going at a fast pace again! I have a few renders of a couple of new props and such, I will include with hopefully more, next week.

But no promises, I just really want to get back to this asap, but I cant complain on being a part of a indie game either! :)

So sorry to keep everyone waiting, be sure though, to check in from time to time, and also ask if there is anything you would like to know!

Greets,
Øyvind "Garrador" Andersson
