I. Status Update

I must begin by apologizing for the NewsGrid's absence last month, Real Life has a tendency to get in the way sometimes and by the time I had the opportunity to do the newsgrid, it was almost time to begin again on the next issue.

Now some of you have noticed a slowdown in progress, but like all volunteer projects, we cannot hope to keep up a constant work schedule at all times.  Don't fret, however, just as we have our slow times, so do we also have our busy times, and I'm sure that there's one coming soon enough to keep you all satiated.  This month we've got a smaller issue, but hopefully it makes up in quality what it lacks in quantity.  Without further ado then, I welcome you to the October issue of the Fate of the Galaxy NewsGrid.  Enjoy!

-Brandon Drew (Brand-X)


II. Model and Texture update

A slower couple of months, but still some great work shown off by our art team!


GR-75 Medium Transport  (Model work in progress by maje)


Z-95 Headhunter (Model completed by maje, texture work in progress)


Imperial I-class Star Destroyer (Model completed by Brand-X, texture work in progress)

III. Meet the Devs

This week we feel it's time to introduce the most important member of the team, BotenAnna!

About As Likely As Pigs Flying (BotenAnna)
IRC Bot
I know a bot.  Her name is Anna. Anna is her name.  She can ban you, ban you so hard.  She cleans up our channel.  I want to tell you, that I know a bot.

And this week I got a great chance to get to know her a little better by giving a bit of an interview:

(Brand-X): So tell me, Anna, a lot of people out there want to get to know you a little better.  Let's start with your real name.  What is it?
(BotenAnna): About as likely as pigs flying.
(BX): All right, I'll try to get the spelling right.  Now do you always go by that name, or do you have any nicknames?
(Anna): I don't know.
(BX): All right, and where do you live?
(Anna): Obviously.
(BX):  Hmm, never heard of it, but it must be nice.  Now next question, what are your hobbies?
(Anna): The outlook is poor
(BX): Hmm, such an existentialist sort of thing to do in your spare time.  So with hobbies such as that, how did you find yourself working on the Fate of the Galaxy team?
(Anna): Naturally.
(BX): Hah, well that's fair enough.  So what do you do as a real job?  What is your profession or career?
(Anna): In your dreams
(BX):  Oh that was you on that web site!  Wow I didn't recognize you, did you change your hair?  Anyways, let's talk about that later, in my dreams that is... So how did you get into Star Wars then?
(Anna): You know better than I.
(BX): You know your evasiveness isn't helping this interview much.  Is there anything else I should add in my article?
(Anna): It is so.
(BX): (silence...) Well that's all the time I have, thanks a lot BotenAnna!
(Anna): Yes.

Note to self: Never try the !8ball interview style again.

V.  Closing Remarks

Thanks a lot for taking the time to read this month's newsletter!  I'd once again like to apologize for the lack of an issue last month, but hopefully that won't happen again.  Until next issue, this is Brandon signing off.  !8ball Any last words BotenAnna?

(BotenAnna): About as likely as pigs flying.

Sincerely
-The Fate of the Galaxy Devs

Re: Fate of the Galaxy NewsGrid: October 08 Edition
If the makers read this message...keep up the progress....I can wait till its done. 
Wonder why I call my self Ace349. After playing FS1 5 times through
I tried it on very easy and got 349 kills in the campain and my call sign was Ace, hey it ringed well. With a keyboard. Then played FS2 with a joystick and got 365 kills in the campain. Using ace again. Hence Ace 365. Whats your "No **** there I was" story.

Murphy's law: Any story that starts with "No **** there I was" is a true story.

And due to certain circumstances, I don't believe there'll be a January one either.  More to come soon on this.
