    Just a small update. No new snazzy pictures to show. Artists are doing the not-so-exciting-to-see work of topology of their models...the process of creating a good mesh for characters both high and low poly. The Tsi-Hu humanoid is being prepped for this.

    Meanwhile Joe is working on the Tsi-Hu beast form. It's BIG, probably too big compared to the human, but we can easily play with scale once we get it next to an Omniframe in engine.

    The riggers are working through a lot of technical challenges with the Omniframe...humans getting in and out, arms mirroring the mech arms with controls, flaps and split body animation planning. It's not going to be an easy rig.

    Michael Bross is getting started on the music for the THMPR demo encounter. His schedule has freed up and work begins next week. I'm really excited to be working with him again on the music. I loved his music for Firefall.

    On another front, an hour a night is being aside to write up test rules for the tabletop RPG of the Em-8ER universe. Em-8ER is set in the Crixa Universe, and more than a few ideas will cross pollinate between the two games. Crixa fans have been waiting for a long time for work to start here, while Em-8ER has taken up much of the focus and time. We hope to do some quick playtests with local friends and undoubtedly ideas from the tabletop will help shape the missing sections of Em-8ER's lore and mechanics.

    Finally, while this is not a goal for the Kickstarter, we do have a test multiplayer server running and I'll be logging in this week to check it out. Nothing fancy, just the Unreal mannequin running around, but even WoW started this way so I'm looking forward to it.

    Thanks it for now. Thanks for supporting us and letting us make this game!

    There is no easy way to check yet, but there will be later on. If you really need to know, you claimed Veteran tier on 27th January. ;)

    Hey Guys,
    We have created an official Em.8er Twitch channel located here: https://go.twitch.tv/em8ermpw

    Please add this channel. It's a little bare bones since we opened it today, but we will fill it with banners and imagery. Modeling streams for Em.8er done by me will run through this channel, my channel, and youtube simultaneously so you will be able to tune in however is easiest for you!

    Happy Friday everyone!

    We have some more work in progress shots of the Tsi-Hu humanoid. This time we are focusing on the head and face and upper body. We wanted to create that "alien beast yet intelligent" look we've all been discussing with the community.

    The "hair" on the Tsi-Hu humanoid are meant to mimic the hair on the beast form that they shapeshift into. Right now we are modeling the hair, but if we get time, we want to explore using a shader to create moving, morphing shapes of spikes like ferrofluid.

    Also this weekend, JoeSolo will be streaming the BEAST mode modeling. @HeineSnow kindly provided the base model that we are scultpting into its final form.

    Joe has a new microphone that he swears sounds "really good" so our past audio issues should be history. The stream is on Sunday, 6PM-8PM! This time he will be dual streaming it to his personal channel as well as the new, official Em-8ER Twitch Channel.

    To catch Joe this Sunday, 6-8pm, find us on Twitch here: https://go.twitch.tv/em8ermpw

    You can also watch Joe via his personal Youtube if that's better for you: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCSieVxJhO1EbiRVn3XfYerA

    See you on Sunday!

    TL;DR: And the final value of ingame credit given away is ...
    $239,860 !!!

    After being asked for hard numbers about founder credit program and late comers being confused whether it's still running or not, I've had work cut out for me. Goal was to transform Firefall founder credit page to anything better than 404 error. Priority was to inform users it's no longer available and to explain what it was about, what was offered and why it was discontinued. And as cherry on top display all the relevant statistics.

    It was great experience to create the program, which I believe ran without any major incidents and resisted any abuse attempts (I know you've tried, I'd too :D).
