Hey Devrous. Board has been inactive for 2 months as of today, was wondering if you were able to give us a progress update on the project
Imagine awakening, and hearing the heartbeat of the galaxy for the first time.
It is like a cloud, a mist that drifts from living creature to creature, set in motion by currents and eddies.
It is the eye of the storm, the passions of all living things turned into energy, into a chorus.
It is the rising swell at the end of life, the promise of new territories and new blood, the call of new mysteries in the dark.

Sorry, been out of town for five weeks taking a good long vacation from work!

Before the break, I managed to get a couple more models updated, fixed a few turrets and odd submodel issues with some of the main ships (it was putting them way outside the ship). Also, I tried a build to balance the fighters better by slowing them down and giving them some uber-afterburners. It's fun for the player but the AI has trouble with it; looks like a group of angry hornets coming after you when they aburn!!!

I've been focused more on quality of the tables and missions as of late instead of worrying about the models/textures. It could be beautiful and no fun to play or fun and passable,  and I think people would enjoy the later much more.

I'll whip up a few screenies soon. Also halfway done on an intro cinematic! Just need to hunker down and get a server, revive the old website, etc. etc. Fun times ahead!

Thanks for keeping the interest! I'll have files and actual gameplay out as soon as I it gets closer to a beta state.

 
Fun while it lasted.

Then bitter.

Also want to point out something that will certainly eat up a bit of time over the coming days!

Released back in October of last year (how did I miss this?!?!?!?!  :banghead:) was Halo: Glasslands. Aside from continuing the story arc set up in GoO (Ghosts of Onyx), it introduces a glimpse into the post-war struggle.

Personally I'm quite happy some literature has come out about this. The plot from what I read of the summary follows closely what I set up for Chapter III years ago! Why am I happy, then? A) I probably don't have to change my plans or details for Chapter III and B) reinforces my resolve that I was thinking in-line with Bungie storytellers.
