    [8/28]: Developer Diary for August 28th
    Posted on Monday, August 28, 2000 at 10:28 AM PT by Taldren
    Ok here is the big update I promised. It might not be a long update but it has some great information.

    The Hydran Carrier model has been completed as well as the Gorn Starbase. I will get you all screen shots as soon as we can get them in the game. Nate has done a great job on these two. I think that the whole art team seems to top themselves with every release. We should have many new models for you too look at in the coming weeks!

    Brad has been working hard on getting the SFC2 website ready for launch. It will be packed with tons of stuff for fans to drool over. We hope to launch it next Friday!

    Iíve saved the best for last. We have been working many long hours to bring you the SFC2 demo! This will feature the new tutorials as well as a Multiplayer scenario Demofest. Not only will you be able to play the Klingon and Federation, but you will also be able to take the Mirak and ISC out on a test drive.

    I am also working on other areas of SFC2 that I canít talk about yetÖ.but I canít wait to tell you!

    [8/1]: Developer Diary Update for August 1st

    First off I would like to apologize for the lack of updates things are getting crazy. This is a good thing.

    We just opened new forums on our website in preparation for our beta test. Yes, this means we are getting closer! We will be running the beta test in several phases. The first phase will be starting shortly. This will be a closed beta. In a few weeks we will have a form on our Taldren web page to get into the next portion of the beta. Please donít email us until we ask. The first portion of the beta will focus on our tutorials and multiplayer game. We will widen the testing to the single player game and then finally to the Meta game. The demo would then be produced before the final game shipped.

    The whole Taldren team has been coming in the last couple weekends and testing our game multiplayer. The multiplayer play seems to be much improved after Marc Hertogh went through the code and streamlined it. It was a lot of fun playing the game with the new races and fleet control. Everyone had a blast.

    Iím sure you have all seen the new Gorn Freighter and the new listening post. Nate will be working on the Gorn Starbase soon and Ill get some pictures of it as soon as itís ready. I think I will show off more fighter screen shots this week.

    Brad finished our 2 page ad that should be appearing a in month or so in the print mags. I sure after seeing the ad people will have no choice but to buy the game.

    Marc is working on integrating the new fighter spec file. When it is completed it should make it so fighters land and reload on carriers. Neat stuff. It will be nice to see all the new models in actual action in the game.

    The Meta game is coming along too. We can now log on, move around, and pick missions. There is a lot of chrome to add to the meta but the basic building blocks are there.

    I will be bringing you a lot of updates in August as our feature set become more solid. I will then be able to reveal many of the things Iím working on that up to this point must remain secret.

    Till next time,

    Josh
