Eagerly anticipating BtA!
BtA is my most anticipated project on HLP. I want to see what happens after the era covered by ST:R. I hope and expect to see the GTA plausibly disintegrate into colorful, bickering Terran blocs with all the fun political intrigue that this entails. The fragmentation of the Terrans gives a ton of space to tell interesting stories; the Fs1-Fs2 interwar era has so much untapped possibility, with a multitude of independent Terran governments interacting with each other and with the Vasudans.

Please release soon so I can give you pages of dry, hate-filled debug spews because I left sgwp2.vp in my root directory.

Re: Eagerly anticipating BtA!
Oh, don't worry; you'll get just what you want out of our first release. ;)
"We have now reached the point where every goon with a grievance, every bitter bigot, merely has to place the prefix, 'I know this is not politically correct, but...' in front of the usual string of insults in order to be not just safe from criticism, but actually a card, a lad, even a hero. Conversely, to talk about poverty and inequality, to draw attention to the reality that discrimination and injustice are still facts of life, is to commit the sin of political correctness. Anti-PC has become the latest cover for creeps. It is a godsend for every curmudgeon and crank, from fascists to the merely smug."
Finian O'Toole, The Irish Times, 5 May 1994

Re: Eagerly anticipating BtA!
I'm glad you're looking forward to it. The biggest hurdle for us right now is finishing the last 4 missions which are in varrying stages of development. (Some just started, some nearly complete.) After that it's just cleaning up the details and making sure everything's ready to go!

Re: Eagerly anticipating BtA!
For whatever it's worth to the 3 people who check this board.. I'm finishing the last mission. Then we'll proceed into testing while I finish some of the cosmetics (anims and the like).

We have rescheduled the release from 'Soon (tm)' to 'Sooner (tm)'.

Re: Eagerly anticipating BtA!
Bumping this in anticipation for tomorrow. I dunno about everyone else but for me THE HYPE IS REEAAALLLL. Also the first project on HLP that actually has my voice in it, however small a role I may have played, so, yeah, HYYYYYYPE!
