Friday Update - Sometimes it's quiet

    Sometimes there isn't much to report when you are in head's down mode in development.

    We are dealing with some unglamorous parts of game development. This means the Omniframe is going through mask prepwork for texturing, and that the humans are getting a redo of some of their UV maps.

    Animators and Riggers are waiting for final scale and low-polys before animating. I'm also getting ready to chip into modeling simple things by brushing up on Modo and Substance Painter myself. No sense in having Joe make rocks, for example. His talent would be wasted :)

    Meanwhile Michael Bross has graciously agreed to help not only with music but with sound FX work for the playable mockup. Ekiator is also readying a server based on Unreal 4.18 with its improvements to muliplayer. While the playable mockup won't have mutiplayer, we are working on a server for post-KS needs.

    That's about it for now. Thanks for tuning in!

    Any status report is a good report! Even if it doesn't have navels!

    Right on! Information is always good. As you said, Grummz....may be unglamorous but the team's openness on the project is a major plus with the community.

    Yes that is a waste of Joe's talent but...

    (Looks around for Torgue and sees its safe to take a shot at Grummzifer)

    You sure your talent won't waste the rock?

    Any regular Update helps to create Trust and to remain it. I've seen so much Kickstarter projects who failed to do so and had to deal with a lot of people who asked for refund, gave bad reviews or called these campaigns "scam" without any proof.

    Through all the communication thus far over the past year, we can see the seriousness of how you guys are taking this game and we know that while there are times of great joy and happiness at finishing a goal point there are times in between that are tedious and humdrum.

    Great progress thus far @Grummz and the team. We can play whack a mole on another Weekend :D when your heads pop back up.

    We trust in the work you do and have seen what can be done. The long pauses and nothings are going to happen but when those are over and the big news with pictures and galore happens it will be all worth it. :cool:

    Keep up the superb work!

    While I agree any report is good, well.. unless its bad.. ahem.. The lack of navel is no trivial matter.

    Can't wait to see your rocks Grummz.

    I also disagree, we need more navel's.

    I totally missed this update ... which is STILL an update; even without nice graphics. ;)
    I must say I'm pumped to hear about Michael Bross helping on the sound effects and Ekiator working on the server!
