Now, we have heard many concerned over the actual percentage of completetion Perfect Dark: Source has achieved; thusly, we are proud to announce that the mod is approximately 90% done. However, this is a rough estimate and with recent SDK and several related software updates, many if not all of our old animations have stopped working creating more work to be had before our tentative beta release.

Onto the media updates:

Mapping :

Iggy never ceases to amaze. His latest Felicity update is definitely worth checking out (and yes, those blue rings do spin):

Remember Temple is on the borders of the Cetan solar system! So could it be forgotten by the human species yet? Of course not, Gectou4 has been working hard on stylizing the map after the Cetan race (remember those long forgotten aliens the Skedar got their technology from? Neither did I) and is ready to show some fruits of his labour:

MODELING
Unfortunately, Tonedef has had to step down due to personal issues for an unspecified length of time. We appreciate everything you have done for us! The Falcon 2, modelled by Tonedef and textured by Iggy, was briefly displayed of picture of the week, for those of you who didn't catch it:

We wish the number of our active modellers were higher. Moreover, since the latest updates of the SDK and several related softwares have affected the animation of models and this might also cost us more time...

CODING
Draco, who was taking a little vacation from the mod, came back to fiddle with some lines of code. Among what has been set: the game modes system is being redone, and a new, secret game mode will be added. We shall reveal it to you at the release of the first beta.

We also made a page where you can see the entire list of cvars, click here

Not everyone in our team agreed with the release of the following video. In fact, you will see several bugs and improper stuff, we are sorry for this. The delay of this news was due to technical reasons. About the models animation, we are facing a significant problem of model compilation thhat is killing our progression in tis aera. Sorry again for this, and we would like to inform you that only the HUD (health + armour + ammo + weapon function + radar
(on which you see a king of the hill zone)) is working! Several fundamental things are still to be modified, especially about a french localisation bug displaying ''rouge équipe'' and that we will have to fix later. But in any case, do not panic! We are fully aware of the problem.
Thanks for understanding.

These are no N64 rips, and the continued professionalism of the sounds continually surprises us. We recently had some problems with the music section of our media page, but it is back up and running with an addional track by Krispy.

Here is Krispy's latest tunes :

The website is continually being developed so you can expect to see a section update very soon. In addition to the cvars page, we will release a page covering the maps landscapes, their respective stories, and their progress.

In response to several of your questions:
- Concerning the mirrors for the first Beta, you can contact us if you wish to host it
and the people volunteering should be contacted around a week before the release.
- We also plan to distribute this first release on theVapour network.
