This weeks POTW (below) is Orboscope's magnificent coloured drawing of Trestkon for the cover of our PDF manual. The cover itself will be drawn entirely by hand, whereas this POTW has been equipped with an abstract digital-ish background to be used as a wallpaper. You may download it in 4 different sizes from our Wallpapers page.
This week has presented a bit of progress. Another Andy has been added to the composer list in the hope that he will speed things up. To avoid confusion, this new Andy will henceforth be called by his nickname, Acol. Acol makes "a wide array of electronic music - ambient, glitch, IDM, industrial, techno, soundscapes, and general ethereally type stuff." And we're certain his style will fit right into the mod.
Also: Phasmatis is back, and he is determined to finish this mod all on his own if necessary! Well, that may or may not be true, but at the very least, he dedicated this week to TNM, apparently deciding that HDTP had enjoyed his brilliance long enough, and he's already eradicated half his to-do list. The most significant thing he did was to finish the texture for HDTP's new high-poly black chopper, which will - extraordinarily - appear even in the basic non-HDTP-enhanced version of TNM.
I'm excited to see if we'll make our christmas deadline for the map geometry. It looks like we might, but it depends on a whole lot of things. Perhaps a christmas PR special would be in order regardless? Stay tuned...
