This Week's Development Update! (July 1st)
« on: July 02, 2015, 12:24:10 am »
For everyone who's been waiting for their Founder's Club access the past couple of weeks, I'd like to thank you for your patience!  We'd still been getting set up at the new office locale and it's taken me longer than I thought it would to get situated.  Thus, since I'm unfortunately the one with the hands on the Founder's Club tickets, everbody else on the team has been powerless!  Powerless! ;D

As for the promised progress reports:

Nathan's slowly working his way /out/ of the sector netcode/object structuring. Iz powerful.

Gabe's making final adjustments to his AI pathfinding code but kind of needs Nathan to be done with the sector stuff to test it in BR.

We decided to keep Micah experimenting with other related areas to his Unity standalone... very informative this test has been. @.@  We're still deciding as to how much we want to make available for this standalone... just to get it out there we might pare it down a bit.  :-X

Zack's been working with Nathan on the sector logic, since everything in the game stems out of it.  Again, glad they're climbing out!

Terah's got a new Bose QC25 headset.  Office conditions: improved! ;D  She's able to concentrate on her art a lot more now. ^.^

I've been focusing a lot on our schedule going through the rest of the year, and discussing with the rest of the Zannites on how we want BR to shape up over the next couple of years, and how best to make sure the Founder's get their $10's worth before they all die of old age!  ;)  ::)

It's a shame that communication is so bad recently, it doesn't really inspire confidence. :( And I've been following this for a loooong time now.

They will come back, eventually.  They always have.

Gabe mentioned in the IRC that he has been prodding Aaron to do an update on the progress, but he just hasn't done it yet.

Sorry for the delayed response Commander Jackson!  I've been away from the office pretty much most of July (gotta get them acorns for the long winter! ;D ), and we keep all dev related stuff (logins, passwords, etc) strictly to our dev PC's.  Gabe's been able to hold down the fort for me, but he refuses to PR while there's work to be done. =P

...cpr was my idea......
Spoiler
I'll settle for dev medic


I guess having the Wraith of Gabe hold down the fort but not handle PR wasn't terrible... 

JK!

Welcome back!  I hope that space acorn gathering went well!

Shhh!

Don't take away my shiny new tag I've just stolen earned.

After all that hard work I put into disposing of reviving Aaron, how dare you.
