    Oh hi, long time no see.

    If by any chance you are still waiting expectantly for Godfall 2 to come out i am pleased to tell you that we are almost complete.

    Tech tree is 100%
    Everything related object data is 100%
    Models 100% done
    Mostly everything 100% done
    "cause only the campaign is left."

    but dread not, we have already been working hard and swiftly on the campaign!!

    There will be 5 maps to play and all races except 1/2 races will be available for play in the campaign.
    2 and a half terrains are done.
    1 campaign map is nearly done still just some quest description and some ai fixing needed to be done.

    I´ll add some game play footage and videos in this thread here soon.

    About the campaign "Why only 5 maps".

    Well the game will be played in "ladder" mode.
    You choose which race you wish to play at start, lets say drow.
    Then 4 out of the 5 maps will be played, the one missing will be obviously the drow campaign map.
    The final map will be against a boss race.

    After which i do expect an expansion since i got mostly everything i need to finish 2 more races in a short amount of time. Then u can expect i would add 2 more maps to the campaign.

    I also been under the impression that Mechanical Man plans to add some bonus maps which would be unrelated to the ladder mode maps but i am not sure.

    Anganite drow campaign complete
    Fort August empire campaign 90% complete, just have to run some more tests and add quests/req and desc.
    and did some more terraining on wood elf.

    Seriously though it irksome to test alone, need a tester.

    Ps. Campaign was almost ruined when editor decided to rename everything to Trigstr.125 "random number". Lucky i had backups :p

    Yah we were almost dead but we have done so much work on this, same to let it die. :p

    Ok
    3 maps have been fully tested and are playable. Except for some lag in elven map, have to look into that.
    4th map is almost done, terrain is complete, ai is prepped, gameplay is set just have to do some test runs to check difficulty and bugs.
    Map options is also up were u choose the race you want to play.

    Havent touched the fifth and final boss map yet and i still have to compile credit list but i´d wager i am gonna release before the end of this month :p

    I´ll post screenshots soon once i am able to remove all debug messages and the like

    Got some good news and some bad news.
    Good news is i finished the Campaign, its fully playable except "heres comes the bad news" a bug was discovered in 1 of the maps which were trying to fix but seems like its gonna be difficult to patch.
    Hope i can release soon though.

    Hold your horses, I think that still many things should be done, I haven't even test fully, because there are still bugs and someone has to do a better quests and displaying info system. so I'd rather see in two weeks.

    Stupid id2String bugs >.<

    Sorry for long delay, we have not stopped working on the campaign. Mechanical Man wants to patch up the system before release and he seems to be too busy to do it, but until he does my hands are tied and i cannot release.

    Updates

    After some redo-ing campaign style, there are finally new updates. All of 3 human chapters passed the test, only thing to do are general things like hero spells and global bug fixing. Some screens of the last chapters (don't mind the messages, debug features):
