FROM: Rear Admiral Tolwyn, CINCWEAPONSDIVISION
We hope you've all had a great summer! For those of you heading back to school, we wish you the best of luck this year.
There are a few things we'd like to mention in this update, mainly focused on the progress of our project.
First, mission progress: The missions for episodes 2 and 3 are now finished, with the missions for the 1st episode nearing completion.
Second, new code features: New coding abilities that have been implimented into Saga include auto aiming, speed/distance multiplicator, better autopilot animations, and a better normal mapping code. These should lead to a more visually compelling final product, as well as a product that is even more in line with the original feel of Wing Commander.
Other progress includes the following:
- Our fiction viewer is coming along nicely.
- Our voice acting recording has started, although we are still looking for more actors. Don't be shy, send us an audition and help Saga get done faster!
- Also, more ships have made their way into the project. We'll say more about this in the near future.
In summary, the work is progressing forward at a good pace. In the mean time, we strongly encourage you all to login to visit the forums, check out our website, and send us some voice auditions.
