I wanted to let you all in on the progress that went on today and this weekend…
The ANChat system is progressing, quite quickly i feel, towards completion. Te banning and unbanning system went in and some other minor issues. It is practically completed. I am actually quite excited and look forward tot he next time that i get to hit it as hard as i did saturday night.
Gneu’s new host is going to be a fantastic relationship. I have been nothing but pleased by the support and performance that i have experienced thus far and hope that it continues as such.
Now for the meat of the news. OMS is being put back on the table.

It has been a bumpy road for me in modding, but i think i have finally found a team that I am comfortable with again, as i once was with the White development team. As with all mod teams the needs of the few often outweigh the goals of the many – specifically time is a very tough combatant when trying to build a project. We have been on a bit of a hiatus while our lives sort themselves out and as much as i hate to say it, i was a little disillusioned by it. I am here now to show a small piece of the inspiration the last two weeks has brought me to accept that our project is moving back on track (getting the derailment corrected).
Taking on too much is always a problem with myself. I find that I am often unable to realize how deeply invested I am in the various projects I pick up along the way. School and work are two of the most powerful time saps in my life, but I rarely feel the challenge from either of those. I find myself looking for challenge in picking up and accepting projects from the world around me. The pattern repeats itself – I feel unchallenged, I pick up a project, pick up another and another and another and so forth until I have myself so deeply submerged into the added responsibilities that I eventually burn out and give up on everything.I am currently working at about 60% of my ability, and I’ve been ignoring my tasks for long enough. I have to spend a few minutes organizing myself and getting the projects I have been working on over the last year or so, and id like to bring you with me.

Just completed the Compass object for our mappers to be able to tweak the direction of north for the map. Thought i would make a quick post.
There is also an update to the server advertisments mod for all you hot admins out there.
Expect a fix to the jump mod bug.
Last night I started work on an application that is going to have all the features of UnCodex (which has the features of UClasses and UnDox) and is going to become its successor. Of course this means its going to pull time away from OMS but I am confident with my team and our time management skills to be able to continue meeting our goals, if not blowing by them!

This is a demo video of one of our gameplay types called Territorial Domination. For more information about our game please hit our project website.
this past weekend was quite an exciting one
Today is my dad’s birthday, I saw some friends I had been neglecting for far too long, and I kick started work on OMS. For those of you who are new to Gneu and our delusions of grandeur I’m sure this would come as a bit of a shock, but we intend to make a game. Not just any game, mind you, but one that is not made for everyone. It is going to be tailored to the concept of emulation of reality. We have quite a few notes about our goals up on the wiki, and I have another 12 paragraphs to add in the coming weeks. Some important links are at the end of this article.
