Why is the title of my blog so often 'Stuff...'? That's because I just can't find a good title for the jumble of things I'm talking about :-)
Anyway, I finally started work on Crystal Core again. Our main artist (Xotic or Anders Wisur) has catched a major case of 'Real Life' and he told me that he will only be cured of that around August. So until then the art side of Crystal Core is pretty much stalling. But I decided to work on the game logic again. So now I'm working on a new shiny weapon system. You will be able to pick up weapons and ammo and switch between weapons. Most of this is already working to some extent. But I need more models for weapons, ammo, and also visual effects.
Soon we are going to branch CS and CEL 1.2. Then we can finally start working on fixing the last bugs for 1.2 and release. It is hard to keep on schedule here. We really could use some more developers focused on fixing bugs and doing more 'mundane' things like completing features and such.
I also picked up a VERY old hobby of mine: electronics. When I was a kid I used to play with digital electronics a lot (making small logic circuits and such). But then I got my first computer and for more then twenty years I completely forgot about it. But now my children are starting to get in the age that they are also interested in stuff like this so I picked it up again. This time however I'm concentrating on analog electronics. More specifically I'm trying to build analog synthesizers. Nothing fancy. Just playing around a bit with transistors and 'opamps' :-)
To pay for my new hobby (among other things) I thought that it would be nice if I could finally make some money out of Crystal Space. So we (me and a few others) are considering starting some kind of consultancy site on Crystal Space and CEL. So we can give commercial support for projects that are interested in that kind of thing. OGRE also has something similar. We'll see how this works out. Once we are ready with this I'll post an announcement.
Edit: forgot to mention that planning for the 'secret project' is still in progress :-)
That's it for today. See you in my next blog post!
