Hey guys, longtime no update hey! My exams have finished and i have all the free time in the world at the moment, besides work commitments.
The mod hasn't seen much development since Janurary this year due to my schooling but we have a number of things we would like to complete over the next couple of weeks. These are the things:
- Complete Coding of Cylon Faction- We want to finish the cylon faction coding before the end of next week so that we can balance it with the Colonial side.
- Start and possibly finish effects art- We want to possibly finish the effects art by the end of July ready for an Alpha and Beta release in August.
- Complete Coding of Galactic Conquest Map- This will include the new planets and their positions for the release of the mod.
- Brush up on Graphics- Hopefully im going to take a look at the graphics this week just to make them better in some aspects and change some things.
This is what we hope to achieve by the end of the coming weeks, but we do have some things which wont be able to be completed until we get a Mapper on board.
V1 of BSG at War will only contain space combat until we can develop the ground aspects of the mod, currently the team lacks the skills of a good mapper, there is a position open for a SPACE mapper more than anything, but they must be able to make effective use of props and new skydome maps to make effective looking BSG maps.
Anyway i want to get some public input at the moment. The Galactic Conquest map currently contains 22 Colonial Based Planets, both from Old and New Series, and the Cylons only have 3 currently. We are looking to add at least another 9-13 planets for the Cylons, but because there is a large lack of information about planets we want the public to make some names of cylon planets for us. All names that are given will be considered for the mod and we will use upto 13 planet names if we get a good response. So lets get those names flowing in.
Next week i hope to have something exciting to show you!
This is just a simple news update to let you guys know that we are back on the case of the mod, and HOPE, thats a big HOPE to have a release for you Mid August.
