Alright, just a slight update today, just to make sure you know we're still alive and all: we're in the midst of preparing a new website to replace our current (rather generic) form website. Some of you may have even seen this site operational over the past few weeks as we've been testing various site functions. We have completed all but one primary section of the website, but unfortunately it's a very time-consuming section. As like is not, I wouldn't expect the entire website finished and uploaded for anything less than a week. Just to give you an idea, here are the features that the new site will have when it is completed:

-A completely new design, with a more Science Fiction look and feel. [done]

-A new StarCraft section, housing every resource we have been able to recover from our now-abandoned StarCraft: Broodwar mod. This includes the mod itself, a small screenshot gallery, a gallery of all recovered implemented models, and slightly-updated unit galleries. [done]

-A Storyline section, with brief overviews of where the story for each race begins. As the content for this section was derived from a site version even older than the current one, it is quite possible this section will be rewritten. [done]

-A new WarCraft III section, housing resources from our ongoing WarCraft III: Frozen Throne mod. This includes the mod itself in both PC and Mac formats, a screenshot gallery, a model gallery, and a VASTLY improved definitive units gallery. [done, with the exception of the units gallery, which is taking forever]

We're also trying to prepare a new version of the mod intented to launch simultaneously with the site, given given that we don't want to launch another new version without implemented models, this is not likely to launch with the site. We have a skinner working on the models, but we need experienced help in that area from people who have done skinning USING 3D STUDIO MAX. If you are able and wish to help in that task, please e-mail me at broodwars@hotmail.com

Well, I'll post another news update when the site's overhaul is completed.
