Well, it seems Spade is going to be stuck in pre-development for the rest of the year, and hopefully the new and better than ever Flash site will be up sometime around mid-January. We've just begun negotiations for a deal with a professional web design firm for a free mod website through modDB's very own forums.
Our first step is getting a team and a website, from then the public will be hearing alot more about this mod. Currently we're recruiting just about anything, so if you want to work on our mod just fire off a PM to me. Make sure they are REAL jobs, Beta Testers and the Guys Who Take the Stickers Off Bananas arn't going to get a place on the team any time soon.
For the design aspects, not much has changed except that I'm trying to come up with some historic maps for MP, but doing any sort of major design change like this is hard to get team feedback. Especially since due to some hosting problems with Traptown, our current host, we can't get our forums up. This royally sucks.
One last thing, I repeat, if you have any skills used in modding and want to be a part of NextGen's mod, please, PM me with what you want to do and we'll work things out from there.
Expect more to come of Spade soon.
