We have progressed far, and it is going well. A percentage of the mod has been completed. :p

Bah I don't bother with % as the last time the modpack was at about 80%, then I redid the entire capship fleet :D

We now have all maps in dds format, except for glowmaps which'll stay pcx.
We now have a shinemap set since spec lighting no longer works without them
We have working OGG music of the FS2 tracks and our own custom tracks. We still need to update the Syphon table to work with the upgraded version of the track though.
Models are in final debugging stages. I don't plan on any major changes to the existing models. I've fixed some really nasty bugs since the last modpack compile.
Effects DaBrain is still working on. I'm not sure what remains to be done here.
More maps probably need upgrading, like the remaining EA ones to match the newer improved ones.
Tables need some work and final tweaking. Some of the staff don't like flying the Mihos right now :D

Missions not much progress since about July. Only major thing was a test version of mission 5 I'm working on.

There's 2 major AI issues we need fixing before we can consider a build for release, since it breaks several missions. Though I'm currently happy with the most recent FRED build since .tbm support is fixed.
You should be able to use either D3D or OGL with no issues hopefully.

Final modpack size has been downgraded from 210mb to 180mb due to the OGG music files. However an IBX cache hasn't been generated for that version of the modpack yet. That's 5750 files @ 478mb once extracted at the moment.

We can't give all ships there own icons, we have 3-4 destroyers per race and only 1 destroyer icon per race.

Briefing icons should be ok, but there's a few that need updating (such as one for the new Arcas)

Which version of Syphon are you using? My 'remastered' one, or extracts from the 44kHz original?

I've been playing around with the music tables to get my version into the game, and have already got a set of numbers which seem to work fine (on another comp though, I can post them up sometime tomorrow for someone to test). Will that help things along?

Extracts from the original files you sent me. They don't work with the older versions tables.

All effects are done. I'm just replacing some out-dated looking effects and maps. ;)

I got no time to work on something the last few days, but my next optical update pack won't need much more time. ;)

So how did you manage dreaming that before meeting me? :wtf:

Everybody dies eventually, though.  So your dream will no doubt come true at some point. :)

This thread took a sudden turn to the creepy side...
