Hi there mates! Yes, I'm alive. <!-- s:) --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_smile.gif" alt=":)" title="Smile" /><!-- s:) --> Been very busy lately (I mean, VERY busy), with college works and classes, so you might imagine how hard it has been for me to show up. I hardly have free times, but it seems this cruel condition will come to an end soon, although only for a small amount of time. I will have some little free times in this Xmas holidays, so I ask what would you like to see, as a priority, sine I won't have much time again after this period. I still have 3 paintings to make (2 to finish, and 1 to start), also in this holidays, so please ask something you would really like to see finished. I'm not a 100% sure I will actually make it, but I will sure try! I understand you guys would like some "Hurt"ing, but I think Firebrand can manage it. I know I owe you some NPC's, but since they are hard to manufacturate, I'm taking all this time and yet, no suceess (several unfinished, which hasn't much use in this state...). I'm also working on that Start Screen, but it could take a while (at least the same time the Korax logo took, and that wasn't very small), although I WILL finish it before we have the SE completed. I still have those 3rd person view graphics separated, ready to be worked out and completed, but I guess they aren't a priority... Anyway, I'm also here to wish you guys Merry Christmas!!! Please send me your opinions. Don' forget about me, ok? <!-- s;) --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_wink.gif" alt=";)" title="Wink" /><!-- s;) --> By the way, RambOrc, I sent you the only NPC I could find which is ok enough to send. I don't know if I already sent this one, but anyway, I improved it a bit while I was writting this message, and should replace the old one. It isn't much, but... I'm also answering some of your e-mails, so please go there and take a look. See you friends.

Damge skins have a high priority, as their lack is the largest obstacle in the way of KMOD 2.5, but if Firebrand makes them, it's just as fine with me. OTOH NPCs (one standing frame from front) would be very important, when making the trailer for SE and watching on the movie all those mage NPCs walking around I realized how extreme a difference NPCs in the town make. Even 100 NPCs that just stand around (and are from 10-15 base types, i.e. several same- or similar-looking from one type) are better than an empty town (especially that the thatched roofs seem to be falling through as in more than a year I couldn't find anybody who could model such a simple artifact and pull a simple skin over it). For the 3rd person graphics, I'm strongly for putting them to the absolute bottom of the list. What OTOH would make some sense to make a standing frame of all 3 game characters with different clothing (like Fighter with and without chain mail), as you'll see those frames quite a lot in dialogues. But it's still far from being real important, I mean one single new monster you fight 200x in the game is a lot more worth than a couple of extra graphics for an NPC you see only in a couple of dialogues where you maybe look only at the text anyway. The NPC you sent me looks cool, just keep sending more... <!-- s;) --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_wink.gif" alt=";)" title="Wink" /><!-- s;) -->

When I will find some time, I could make those roofs for you.

Hey that would be real GREAT! <!-- s:D --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_biggrin.gif" alt=":D" title="Very Happy" /><!-- s:D --> I have been using that town for a long time with and without roofs and though the many models decrease performance greatly, it looks very different.

I can manage to finish the damage skins, it's not much work and I will have a lot of free time to make them, also I have check out the design guide and I saw there are new spells, I want to make some graphics for them, of course, when I finish the damage skins <!-- s:wink: --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_wink.gif" alt=":wink:" title="Wink" /><!-- s:wink: --> I got some cool ideas for them, for example for the time freeze there could appear some sparks effects, I don't know if you ever played Megaman 2 on the antique NES, when you used the quick man's power that frozen time, there were some little sparks all around the screen, I really like that effect <!-- s:D --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_biggrin.gif" alt=":D" title="Very Happy" /><!-- s:D --> as for the fire wall I got some fire sprites that never used they are mainly the fire ball from the Iron Lich in Heretic just a bit "larger" I think that if Moose makes that the code uses several images of it the fire wall would look really cool!! I will think on effects for the other spells and post them...
