After lamenting the loss of some recent changes I was working into the mod due to a raid array crash, I have now opened up a project for Shifter over at Google Code. In layman's terms, this means that the source code for Shifter is now available to anybody who knows how to work an SVN client. I plan on updating the repository at the end of every day (provided I've actually worked on the mod that day) so 1) any really hardcore fans out there can see what I'm up to on a daily basis, and 2) even if all my computers and backup hard drives vanish from the face of the earth (God forbid) I'll still be able to recover my most recent version of the mod.
For those of you interested, the site is located at <a href="https://code.google.com/p/shifterdx/">https://code.google.com/p/shifterdx/</a>.
If you already have a command line version of svn installed, use this command: svn checkout http://shifterdx.googlecode.com/svn/trunk/ shifterdx-read-only
