Hello again, folks! We are back, with some interesting updates. Let's get started!

#1: We have successfully recruited another mapper to begin development on the Unit 648: First Encounter campaign, making that two mappers in total, excluding me, but I hope to do some multiplayer mapping. Two mappers is better than nothing, so the campaign will hopefully be progressing at a steady and solid pace. I will post screenshots when we have more detailed map designs.

#2: We would have had three mappers currently active on mapping the campaign, but one of them was experiencing severe Hammer editor issues, as many people have experienced with the Episode Two Hammer game configurations. We have finally decided to put him to voice acting custom voices and phrases for the campaign, such as dialogue from the main characters.

#3: I know that with the new Source engine updates, thousands of mods have been broken because of the code adjustments. Our mod did experience coding issues, but with a custom patch sent directly to our programmer and leader Brandon(Jenks) from VALVe, he has worked around this and is now updating the code for the gameplay features to come with the mod. We still don't have an estimate of a solid playable release, but stay tuned for more information on when we could have that such information.

#4: I have updated the website, YouTube channel, and forum to look more color-oriented and professional. The website itself has gotten a blog where we will post news updates such as this. This will allow us to release news about the company and our projects where mostly everyone can see it. Please, check out the links below to get where you want to go, such as the forum, website, ect.

Well, once again, that's all for now. I have been told that we could have development screenshots as soon as Sunday, but we may save those for another time, or until we have enough news to be sufficient to the community.

#5 A good friend of ours has begun working on his own community Survival map for Unit 648: First Encounter. I personally think its quite impressive, and we would love to show you some screenshots of the early work. It's not finished, but it definitely has a creepy feeling to it.

- Until next time,
Adrian Lopez, manager of The Lost Coast Corporation
