Sunday 20 February 2011
The cult of the sacred Moo CoW has raised thier voices (all 4 of em) and decreed:

On 20 February 2011, we will release CoW 1 Revamped.

We made it better than it was.  Better.  Stronger.  Faster.  We had the technology.  We had the capability to make the world's first bion....sorry, I was having a Six Million Dollar Man moment.

If you worked on CoW 1 or CoW 2 in ANY capacity, We will pre-release it to you on 13 February 2011.  Just PM me for the link and I will send it on that date.  All that we ask is that you PM me with any last minute bugs that you find. 

Changes since the last screens:

TopAce and Mobius testing and fixing.

I scrapped the Adhara skybox in favor of something more subtle.  Aldo (the hallowed creator of CoW) wanted  CoW to be visually dark.  In an attempt to honor his vision, the background nebulae remain in the skybox, as well as a few you haven't seen yet.  But the overall effect is much darker than the old screenshots show. 

Anyway.  On the show.

This is good news indeed.  Only 17 days until public release.

Arr, public deadlines. You sure have balls.
People are stupid, therefore anything popular is at best suspicious.

Deadlines possess some additional motivational force. They have "There's no stopping us now" written all over them. :P

"Truth" is the opinion of the majority which it can enforce on the minority. Members of the minority have two choices: join the bandwagon or think. Those who do not fall into line will be brutally crushed.

Re: Sunday 20 February 2011
Yeah, and now since you said that something's going to stop you.  I mean, what could possibly go wrong? :drevil:
17:37:02   Quanto: I want to have sexual intercourse with every space elf in existence
17:37:11   SpardaSon21: even the males?
17:37:22   Quanto: its not gay if its an elf

[21:51] <@Droid803> I now realize
[21:51] <@Droid803> this will be SLIIIIIGHTLY awkward
[21:51] <@Droid803> as this rich psychic girl will now be tsundere for a loli.
[21:51] <@Droid803> OH WELLL.

See what you're missing in #WoD and #Fsquest?

[07:57:32] <Caiaphas> inspired by HerraTohtori i built a supermaneuverable plane in ksp
[07:57:43] <Caiaphas> i just killed my pilots with a high-g maneuver
[07:58:19] <Caiaphas> apparently people can't take 20 gees for 5 continuous seconds
[08:00:11] <Caiaphas> the plane however performed admirably, and only crashed because it no longer had any guidance systems

Re: Sunday 20 February 2011
Only 3 things prevent us from releasing it tomorrow.

I have as yet not comitted the new skybox maps to svn, that will happen in the next day or two.  It would not do for you guys to see them before the rest of the CoW team does.

I have about an hours worth of work on the voice acting.

I want to make sure that everyone who who worked on CoW 1 or 2 originally has time to see the thread and respond for pre-release.

Re: Sunday 20 February 2011
If there's any feedback from the old team, will you post it on the internal?
