So I guess the mod is dead?
Been a while since the announcement for Diaspora 2. But no word about its development. Guess the mod is dead due to lack of interest?

Re: So I guess the mod is dead?
Well karajorma and team, how is it going?
Slowly unfortunately. But it is still going. I'm hoping to have a lot more time to devote to FREDding over the next month though as I'm on holiday and not planning on actually going anywhere.
Ph'nglui mglw'nafh Codethulhu GitHub wgah'nagl fhtagn.

schrödinbug (noun) - a bug that manifests itself in running software after a programmer notices that the code should never have worked in the first place.

When you gaze long into BMPMAN, BMPMAN also gazes into you.

"I am one of the best FREDders on Earth" -General Battuta

<Aesaar> literary criticism is vladimir putin

<MageKing17> "There's probably a reason the code is the way it is" is a very dangerous line of thought. :P
<MageKing17> Because the "reason" often turns out to be "nobody noticed it was wrong".
(the very next day)
<MageKing17> this ****ing code did it to me again
<MageKing17> "That doesn't really make sense to me, but I'll assume it was being done for a reason."
<MageKing17> **** ME
<MageKing17> THE REASON IS PEOPLE ARE STUPID
<MageKing17> ESPECIALLY ME

<MageKing17> God damn, I do not understand how this is breaking.
<MageKing17> Everything points to "this should work fine", and yet it's clearly not working.
<MjnMixael> 2 hours later... "God damn, how did this ever work at all?!"
(...)
<MageKing17> so
<MageKing17> more than two hours
<MageKing17> but once again we have reached the inevitable conclusion
<MageKing17> How did this code ever work in the first place!?

<@The_E> Welcome to OpenGL, where standards compliance is optional, and error reporting inconsistent

<MageKing17> It was all working perfectly until I actually tried it on an actual mission.

<IronWorks> I am useful for FSO stuff again. This is a red-letter day!

<MageKing17> TIL the entire homing code is held up by shoestrings and duct tape, basically.

It is certainly not dead.
There are still people working quietly.
If your lucky you might even get to see some new assets soon.
Or maybe we'll just keep everything secret. ;)

Re: So I guess the mod is dead?
It's definitely not dead. In fact it's just now spinning back up to more active than it has been in a while. Over the last week I've probably spent more time on Diaspora than I have in the month before it.

Thank you for replying.

The problem with working in your spare time is that you have to have spare time. Fortunately I have some now. :)
