Flying Tanks and Cookie Dough?
Oh, wait, no. If tanks were ment to fly they would have been born with little bags of salted peanuts.

But A2597, the latest sets don't have all my maps yet - we need to update the beta

And when are we getting the demo out...I think everyone deserves to see the goodies we are working up

I've been bugging A2597 about the Demo...

Basically A2597 still needs to finish off some weapons. We have the 2 maps and 2+ tanks for the demo though - we just don't have all the weapons we want to include.

It looks like it will be at least a good several months before we get the full version out. I have almost finished the maps we need to do, so basically whats left is weapons and tanks for the full version.

As of now--
Known maps that are in progress/done:
10 Race Maps on 9 different worlds
13 DM Maps on 13 different worlds
6 CTF Maps on 6 different worlds
Total worlds represented: 20 worlds
Total worlds we still need maps for: 2-11

I don't have stats on Weapons or Tanks right now...I only know that A2597 recently came across a new resource for Tank models (online) so he can begin making more tanks.

P.S. - rarely do 2 worlds have the same Skymap - so assume there about about 15 or so different skymaps already in the game - beyond LDA's that is

Right now all weapons are for beta testers only except the Penguin Mines. And they aren't SSO.

Ok - cool. Pretty much what I figured. Really fun mod. Took a bit to get used to the new tanks - once there though look out. Really impressive graphics and effeccts. Health gun and ppo? wpn very neat. The laser type weapons you have done are a true treat to the mind. Burning tank effects a very neat toucch. New meaning to Army Men - flash back to true childhood. Let me know what specific type of comments you are looking forr - Great job thus far.

Well we know of some problems. For instance: Don't play a CTF map right now with those tanks that regen ammo.

Also as for the tanks, almost every one of them has been updated since then

-----------------

I'll see if I can bug A2597 into posting something about what he needs from the Beta Testers...

explosion effects for tanks aren't done yet...I have an idea in my head, not certain if it will work..if it does... HOOOOOOO BOY...whole new level of graphics.

nuke like explosions are no where NEAR done.

tanks all look like absolute crud right now IMHO. need to work on them...
(A2597 says: "I STINK AT TEXTURING!!!!")

now, weapons...not much in there now...there WILL be if I get around to adding things in. got LOTS of weapon idea, actually... I chock full of ideas...just need to implement them.

as for what I need from you beta guys.
overall opinions.
suggestions for anythign and everything.
bug reports. (At this stage just about everything has bugs, *sigh* )

some examples of things that I wanted but can no longer do...

Recharging weapons. I loved the idea, looked COOL. problem: you can't play CTF with the tank, flags cannot be picked up.

FTF, fun fun IMO, problem...might be able to fix, need to e-mail LDA and ask.

did I mention the tanks look like crud? yes? oh well..

things that I'm still not happy with are numerous. I'm getting happy with the map graphics, but the overall weapon effects seem lacking to me yet...can't place my finger on it....oh well.

I seriously have NO idea when this thing will be done, demo is close though...need to fix a BAD texture bug on the remodeled/retextured Minbari Shrek. (Looks COOL now other then the bug, quality I want!) and add at LEAST SOME weapons to it...
otherwise, demo will consist of the following:
3 maps
3 tanks
as many weapons as possible.
all maps will be DM or Race.
(Two race, one DM).

things that need to be done to get demo out:
resize some textures, have the high res as optional DL.

remodel/retexture two tanks, fix texture bug on Shrek.

add as many weapons as possible.

......

sheesh...dosn't look like so much there...
