Curious as to project status...
When will R2 be out?   ;7

Just had to get that out of my system...

The FAQ thread hasn't been updated in a while.  I was just wondering what has happened in the past couple of months.  I think you said you were rebalancing the .tbl files and still making missions at the last status update.  Anything else change since then?

Not much has happened since November. Kind of lacking the staff to make any progress.

Re: Curious as to project status...
I was wondering the same thing for over a year now.  Meh.  Just don't expect anything anytime soon, haha!

I'd help out if it weren't for school, and I've been away from the community for awhile now.  Well, if R2 isn't out by next summer, then I'll sign up to help out a bit.

Re: Curious as to project status...
Things were going well between September and November but it died down after that. Right now there's only me and Qwer here.

It's one of the reasons why I started working on some of the other things I've been featuring recently, since I can't make much progress on the main mod right now.

What's the hangup, then?

SA is dead, nobody's responded to my finishing my mission...

Re: Curious as to project status...
For me, RL issues, and the fact that my venerable Sidewinder joystick decided to die this week. :(

Re: Curious as to project status...
This is somewhat worrysome.  Do you think the staffers will come back when they are free again? 

I would hate to see Inferno die... :(

Inferno won't die,  but I wouldn't be surprised if by this time next year R2 isn't still released.

Then replace it with a gamepad ASAP ;)

You can 'play' FS2 with a gamepad in the same way as you can with a mouse and keyboard. It's nowhere near as good, or accurate, to someone who prefers a large, weighty stick in his right hand. ;)

Am I the only one who thought of that that way?
I wonder if the Shivans eat chocolate? Or play FS2, for that matter.

Re: Curious as to project status...
Seriously,but if we want that Inferno continues we should form a new Team...

What will the R2 contain exactly?What kind of new ships and weapons?
How many missions will be present?Is it upgraded to be playable to recent version of SCP?
Are maps and effects upgraded?

Re: Curious as to project status...
1. Uh about 170 ships and over 200 weapons. Look at previous topics for 'types'
2. 18 in the first chapter. Doesn't currently run on latest INF Builds due to out of date tables, but I can fix that in a few hours. It requires an Inferno build and will be released with the most recent stable build at that time.
3. Some are some aren't. Most EA maps are redone though a few haven't been done. We have over 6110 files in the mod and only 1 person working on effects and maps, 0 working on models so keeping up with new SCP graphics features is not a priority.

Re: Curious as to project status...
I haven't seen anyone who is free enough to work on 953 effect files, 1355 maps, or 266 models.

The Gargants future is undecided and it's a modified Gigas R1, which was a modified Sathanas.

"Shivan Hive" I think. I saw a nice looking render comparing the sizes of the Gigas, Gargant, and the Collossus for comparision. (Note: I've looked all over for that render and have never seen it again. What site is it on?) The Gargat looked about three times the size of the Gigas (the R1 Gigas, that is), and should probably have comparably powerful weapons methinks. Also Woo has gone out of his way to make it invincible... that's what I know about it.

Re: Curious as to project status...
It's about twice as long as some of the older Gigas models, a bit under that with the new one. It has a lot more mass though.
