As you may or may not be aware, I am still working reasonably regularly on the mod and have got it to a stage where I feel comfortable releasing a focused demo version of Phoenix Rising 2.0. Currently, the version is in testing, but you can get a sneak-peek from Corey, lead developer on the Thrawn's Revenge series of mods, who has graciously begun a series of videos of the demo test build on his Youtube channel. The first video is below, and subscribe to Corey's channel for more.
2.0 will include all the changes noted in previous news posts, but there will be a summary of changes around the release time.
There is no concrete release date for the demo build, so stay tuned.
