Some of the mission designers we took on haven't made a single submission. I won't mention names, you know who you are.

That's me, right? ... wait... I'm the graphics guy. So I'm the one who doesn't take care of the graphics.

Phew... :nervous:

Actually all of them have at least done something, though some haven't finnished any missions.

Some of the testers we took on do nothing at all...

It's more of a proper mainhall now.

Not sure if this was ever answered, but is ETAC ever mentioned at all? This IS afterall a continuation of the FreeSpace saga.

Anyway, since all seems to be progressing well, how long do you expect before Inferno R2 to be released? Last time I really checked in about this (over 1 year ago), R1 was still fresh and R2 was just started on paper.

Depends when the missions are done. The rest I could get ready within a few days.

Too bad.

The ETAC, or at least a mention or use of it given that this takes place decades after Capella, would be a nice twist.

It could still be 'classified beyond your level of clearence pilot' :p

 
If we made ETAK a part of the Inferno storyline I doubt we'd ever hear the end of complaints that we'd done it wrongly. I always thought the idea was a bit dodgy as well - if the Shivans were bothered about communicating with humans, they would have certainly been the first to try; their technology is leagues ahead of the GTVA's in the Capella era.

I mean, sonic oscillations - voices - are conceptually similar to decipher than resonating quantum pulses or whatever technobabble Bosch used for it. :)

Actually, I think it would be criminal not to include something based on it. Chew on this for a bit.

Since ETAK was designed to translate garden-variety Shivan transmissions, if the Shivans used any encryption whatsoever, ETAK is capable of defeating it. The GTVA thus possesses the means to read, at the least, Shivan tactical transmissions in real-time. (And possibly all Shivan transmissions; we don't know if they even bother to encrypt them at all.) This would obviously confer some advantages, and the GTVA is going to be grabbing for whatever advantages it can get.

Bosch built the ETAC to communicate with the Shivans, which you see something of in one of the missions. Maybe dont make the ETAC an out and out story driving device, but maybe have it where it comes up....and the Grand Alliance (GVN, GTN, EA), so they might be able to get SOME answers.  And going on what    ngtm1r   just said...the GTVA did in fact gain ETAC technology when they evacuated the Iceni.

There is, of course, the possibility that Bosch took the software (or whatever) with him, since presumably he'd need a way to communicate with his "hosts".  It's also quite possible, give Return to Babel, that it never worked properly.  From what I got of the Bosch monologues though, it's probably very unlikely that the GTVA would do much with the ETAC research even if they did get all of it.
who needs a signature? ;)

Well if you want something on it, you can make custom content missions for the archives maybe using some of the SOC style fighters ;7

Ugh the newer CVS builds are giving geometry errors in 20 of our ships. Good job I know how to fix them all :)

I want as bugless as possible so I don't have to patch it a few hours/days after release :D

I think bosch may have made a copy of it....  just like we make campaign copies! :p

but seriously, i think the GTVA actually did get MOST of the ETAK research......  bosch probably just needed a translator to talk to the shivans when they picked him up....
Well what do I do now?  Well Jack, you seem to have an act for blowing things up....

Speaking of Bosch, it would kind of be cool to see him show up in a mod with a Shivan fleet.  Part of a bad campaign idea I had was an "infested" Bosch, like Kerrigan in Starcraft, a sort of part human, part Shivan, part cyborg thing (really screwed up when I think of it).  Just a thought.
