A month on from the release of the Map Development Kit and we've been hard at work getting things into the game and testing them out. So far the work on the playable version is going very well indeed, we've already chalked off several items on the plan. You can see how we're coming along

A month on from the release of the Map Development Kit and we've been hard at work getting things into the game and testing them out. So far the work on the playable version is going very well indeed, we've already chalked off several items on the plan. You can see how we're coming along by the screen shots of out Alpha testing on the Media Page.

The standard imperial class, the tactical marine, has already got his main battle gear and HUD in-game, they're kicking bug thorax already :D

The team selection menu is in-game and working slickly, allowing us to test the Tyranid standard class's weaponry and HUD. A Deathspitter and Talons is combination to be feared...
The acid! It burns!!!

Player animation is ongoing, we're still looking for experienced animators to help with the player models. It's also getting to the point where we need custom sound effects, so if you're interested in mixing us up some sound effects please, get in touch.

Here's wishing you a Merry Christmas and a happy new year. More news from Exterminatus in 2007.

Flip the HUD over and stick it on the top of the screen so it dosn't cover the view model.

I kinda like the hud. It gives it a nice old school feel.

Ironicly given the title the picture of the marine combat knife seems to have gone missing :rolleyes:
