Necro my own thread yay.
If anyone's curious I've decided to begin working on chapter 2. The end of the story is still very much up in the air for me, but that won't affect chapter 2. The second part will be SCP only, because I want to take advantage of the cinematic abilities of cutscenes, etcetera. The story will be the same, but the campaign structure will be a little different and hopefully something a little fun and refreshing.
I expect about 10-11 or so missions for Chapter 2 total. But that doesn't include the cutscenes and so forth, depending on how long that takes me to learn, it might slow the project down a lot but we'll see. And there won't be any more long boring patrol missions. A lot more action, but I'd always planned that from the get go so that's not really due to feedback or anything. Also the new campaign structure will hopefully keep out the filler missions, and what is basically unnecessary work on my part.
Hopefully with a little more pre-planning this time, the characters will be more consistent and believable.
Anyway, just thought I'd throw out the heads up. Expect a release when it's done. Hahah. Maybe next year (spring 2009), depends upon how long my interest lasts in it. I might also try to put in some new ships of mine, which may slow things down. Like the Vasudan fighter I never got around to texturing: http://www.hard-light.net/forums/index.php/topic,52461.20.html
