Content updates, new website
I was busy with other things, changed websites, hosts, everything. So, I updated all link in Prospekt Source to new ones. New WIP website for Prospekt Source - Also, finally fixed quick start tutorial, becouse it was for older version with old server layout and it caused many headaches for users.

So, I finally decided to add downloads here. Before, I was frequently updating Prospekt Source, but now it is complete (it needs some optimizations here and there) so I added these 3 downloads to Downloads page:

Future updates
There will be only few updates aimed at optimization (vertex buffers for rendering, some bugfixes here and there and so on).

Possible conversion to Java
I learned many languages since last year, including Java. If I will have enought free time, I will try to port Prospekt Source to Java with everything related. Java opens possibilites for other platforms and better speed than Visual Basic 6 with DirectX8 and FMOD.


Question: Why not develop an next generation version of Prospekt with with Javascript and HTML5?

You could make it 3D using threejs and using networking using Nodejs.

Not to mention that the web development community is really active with HTML5 and lots of resources for online game development.

Not to mention that most of the resources and tools are free for making websites and even games with HTML5 and Javascript

Here are some good resources and articles btw -

I wish you the best of luck :)
