I applaud the pace at which you fire out consistent quality campaigns.  (the CD seal of approval)

Re: Just Another Day Development Blog
That mission is done!

Just ONE more action mission (a very simple action mission)
and
VN ENDING and EPILOGUE



and clean up and polish

Release probably late November/early December? Maybe I can make that American Thanksgiving release date all the AAA games target... Gotta get those holiday boosted sales! It is pretty close though...
Time to brush up on JAD shenanigans!

Re: Just Another Day Development Blog
Not to dissuade anyone from playing JAD2.21 and 2.22, and more of a general head's up, there will be a... "large" update for the two mods. I put "large" in quotes because its really just smaller fixes and changes that'll require a redownload of all the files just due to the way I arranged all the packages... so I apologize to all the slow internet users. There's nothing wrong with the mod now (unless there's some sneaky bug no one told me about) so everyone feel free to replay!

Btw, last action mission started!

(This is my favorite mission title ever btw)

Re: Just Another Day Development Blog
All missions and VNs for JAD2.23 now FEATURE COMPLETE!


Yay.

I use the term feature complete because there's still stuff to go back and fix, polish up and fine tune. But uh, it's the home stretch from here folks.

I'll try to start posting pics and maybe a video or two as I get through it. I want to do a trailer but... we'll see.

Anyway to start the previews off, here's the mainhall image.

*hyped*

Personally I'd prefer to play a day earlier rather than promo material. :D

Re: Just Another Day Development Blog
Well Spoon and Cobra have stuff to deliver still, so if I'm waiting for them and everything else is almost done, I might make a trailer. It's not a high priority thing.

And any other promo stuff would just be screenshots and movies I take while testing.

Re: Just Another Day Development Blog
Also I'd like to mention that even FreeSpace thinks its about time to release.

While making the final mission, I needed to make a few new weapon classes (read: copy a few weapon classes and change attributes a bit) and I went literally 1 over the weapon class limit (its 300 btw).

Luckily I found a weapon that I wasn't actually going to use so I'm slipping riiiight under.

Re: Just Another Day Development Blog
Here's a video preview of a mission! If you recall, Delta 1 was kidnapped by an evil Princess (because she thinks he's Alpha 1 and so she's going to marry him like RIGHT NOW), so it's up to everyone to rescue him before he befalls to this terrible fate. The plan is to sneak into her very heavily guarded royal space station, and to do that, they'll need to intercept the wedding cake freighter and go in with their own.

Naturally everything goes well and there are no unforeseen issues whatsoever.

Re: Just Another Day Development Blog
Just pics this time!

Operation Infiltration Station is a go. First through the ships guarding the station.


The secret to infiltrating is a good cover story.


Meanwhile Delta 1 is enjoying being called Alpha 1.


Holley has to engineer a distraction to get everyone out. And if there's anyone that knows distractions, it's Holley.


Just one problem though...


You'll need to corral up some rioters and try to overthrow the royalist ships.



And when you've got everyone, it's time for the big fish.
