The Tachyon to Freespace2 Full Conversion Mod

Note for March

Hey guys…

I know I don’t post much around here. Best I can say is sorry…
Time and energy is hard to come by.

As to a status report on things here’s where we sit.

At the moment, Shadow Z is occupied with school classes and that there in. He’s made some progress on powerups,
and some items, as well as optimizing / repairing the fenris bouy and station. Both had geometry “fat” and
errors that needed help.

We’re expecting Angelus to return from business matters within this month, he’s been globe hopping so he
can’t really model much. A lot of his work on objects was lost before he had to leave, so we’re hoping we can
remake those quickly.

RK is pretty much going to be away from the mod for an extended period.
He’d like to do something, but he’s working pretty much every hour of the day and night.

Bax is having a rough time with life currently as well. He could use
some encouragement if you have a minute to drop him a note.

Nutri has made known to me he’s working on new music for the menu screen.

Carl, I’ve still not heard anything from. You alive dude?

Slap, nope not heard from either…

Me – I’m trying to stay afloat myself. Been putting resumes out there trying to get work at some decent rate.
Fighting colds and other life problems. Last thing I worked on was the Gal Span Classic HUD, which I managed
to get a fair ways started. However while new HUD code was released, it has poor documentation and a lot
of features we particularly need for FS… aren’t there. So I’ve been sort of wait n’ seeing on that.
Been gathering links to threads and trying to stay on top of topics related to FSO in the meantime.

So yes, not a lot has been done as of late. Let’s be honest though,
we’re less than a skeleton crew trying to do what 15 full time people
would have trouble with under normal conditions. The last couple of years
I think most can agree have been exceptional circumstances.

Hopefully as we can find jobs, time, or new blood, I’ll have some progress to report back with.

Also I’d like to remind folks to pray for the people in Japan, Haiti, and other places around the world that
have been devastated recently. For those in the USA, we know that New Orleans still remains a damaged
city. How much longer then will the destruction on other countries be felt, at such a larger scale?
