Where did WC Pioneer go? The obvious lack of updates shows that there's been precious little progress this year, but it's nice to hear from a member of the team. Artistic and graphical elements are fairly well along, but overall game progress is on hold pending advancement in the game engine area. BradMick has a few more details:
Hey guys, I've unfortunately not got a whole lot to report from my end. I've been waiting, and waiting, and waiting some more for the 'playable' version of the game for some time now for number and design checking.
Howard's been waiting for the same thing I've been waiting for as well. All of the content we need is done, we just need the working engine to dump it into. That's really it. I'll have to get with Howard to put a bug in his ear to stop in and report himself.
Now you know the rest of the comms - today's Excel chart shows everything that doesn't quite fit in an ordinary category (the Redeemer, Calypso, etc.) The most interesting thing for me was learning that there are two SWACS for some reason - "Lookout 1" and "Lookout 7".
These updates are thanks to John "Captain Johnny" Guentzel, who provided several CD image archives of material used by the Wing Commander Prophecy development team!
