for many of you, this will be a very bad news, but this is dicided allready and not for discussion.
The planned release date in the middle of February isn't able to be done. There are many reasons, larkis learning for his exams, because he don't did any textur since 4 weeks, Rommel's absence again ( it's not his fault. but many things he did are now missing), over multiple designchanges, thats why we make parts of the mod complete or fractional new again and again. Till we reach our little friends the bugs which have to get killed ;)
A release today, wouldn't be great for you, because many things are missing our incomplete. To make a new release date is nearly impossible, because the band width of the things to be done is to big.
We're sorry that we can't make the release date, but you can be sure, that the wait gets paid! In difference to 0.8, nearly everything gets changed and improved. So you can look forward to many new things which wants to get discovered.
So boys and girls, unfortunately be patience a bit more, meanwhile we will maybe release a new Trailer or some renderpictures, so you don't think we're only lazy.
We'll see us in the forum, stay loyal!
