do not torment the sleep deprived artist, he may be vicious when cornered,
in case of emergency, administer caffeine to the artist,
he will become docile after that,
and less likely to stab you in the eye with a mechanical pencil

After much debate I decided quotes are a waste of time.

7, maybe 8 years?
"The reason for this is that the original Fortran got so convoluted and extensive (10's of millions of lines of code) that no-one can actually figure out how it works, there's a massive project going on to decode the original Fortran and write a more modern system, but until then, the UK communication network is actually relying heavily on 35 year old Fortran that nobody understands." - Flipside

FS2 wasn't even out 8 years ago and I would think the BWO folks were still working on Warzone and/or Derelict 7 years ago.

Can't wait for it to be released... this and ST:R. Once they are both released I'll probably die from not having anything to look forward to... in Not Real Life TM anyway

I think the reason people go to the Inferno forum more is because they post more screenshots and info there. The problem is there are innumberable amounts of spoilers splurted out...

 
Well, you could do a Open Beta Test, so we can at least play it in our lifetime. :D

But i am sure everyone has their own RL to deal with and stuff like that and nagging girlfriends/wives looking for attention, i am sure everyone is looking forward to this campaign.

Welcome to HLP! Exits are to the right and left. In the event of a landing of any kind, you can and will be used as a flotation device. Flamethrowers are conviniently located under your seats, however, due to the recent funding cuts, a $3.5 million donation is required to obtain a flamethrower with a full load of napalm in it. If you do not wish to make a donation, your flamethrower will remain filled with water. If you don't wish to donate and still want a working weapon, you'd have to try the weapons locker. However, only HLP Admins, a [V] God, or a Hyperintelligent shade of Blue can open the lock, so you'd have to break in. If you find yourself inside a ventilation shaft and you catch a glimpse of a Shivan, you don't need to worry... much. It's just Carl, and you have two choices with how you want to deal with him:
    1. The first possible course of action is getting one of the weapons from the afore-mentioned weapons locker, and trying to ward off Carl by threatening him with the weapon. Be advised that many of the weapons in the weapons locker are covered with the blood of people who thought it a good idea to break into the weapons locker and use the procured weapon to ward off Carl. So, please, if you decide you want to choose this course of action, choose one of the already-bloody weapons, so you don't get blood all over one of the clean ones.
   2. Your second course of action when you see Carl is to throw your lunch to him and hope he isn't hungry. This is the better option.
   As a final note, please remember that any attempt to use the ASCII characters 0046h, 0053h, and 0033h in sequential order will result in you being trampled by Freespace Fanboys. Your trampled remains will be fed to Carl so that the rest of us don't have to carry around so much food for lunch.



with this community, I'm not so sure about girlfriends/wives, but yes, a lot of the people who are working on this have other responsibilities. If you want it to go faster, why don't you learn to model and help out? :D

why would an SCP error be considered as news? :wtf: *smacks Cobra*It's a feature.

 
The last time i tried to model, i tried to make a car........i personally thought it looked more like a plane......lol

Nah, Modelling is not my kinda thing, beta testing is.

I am currently beta testing the Rise of the Sith mod for Kotor 2, which seems to be going slowly before a new beta comes out....but beta testing is more fun. :D
