Man, when I first joined HLP almost 6 years ago, I never in a million years would have thought I would be where I am right now. Back then, the concept of programming was intimidating and I thought I would barely be able to make it as a 3D modeler, but here we are.
I suppose the most important detail I need to get across is that not much is going to be changing. The "mission" of the SCP is as it has always been. We're still going to actively work on the same projects as before. Anyone is free to give it a shot.
As many of you may know (and are hopefully excited about), there is a project to port FRED to a platform that will offer cross-OS compatibility (QtFRED), meaning users on OS X, Linux, and BSD will be able to finally use FRED! It's been on brief hiatus but work is definitely occurring and we will most likely get to feature parity with FRED2 within the next year.
New projects are also being planned and fleshed out right now, so stay tuned!
Lastly, I would like to thank everyone who thought I would fit in the role of SCP lead. I wouldn't be here without them.
If you have any questions, feel free to ask!
