Hey everyone!(I just realized I start every single entry with that phrase)

Thats right, I'm not dead, just unproductive. The past couple of days have been pretty hectic for me, and I just haven't been in the coding mood, and anything that I did attempt to code up resulted in a huge bug, and me rolling back to the previous version, so yeah, not very productive lately.


The Name Game
So a couple days ago Mark and I realized that the name for our current project (Dogfight Online) almost exactly corresponded with HopeDaggers infinitely cooler project, Skirmish Online. Now, before anyone else realizes this and slaps me with a "you're an idea stealer" type comment, let me present to you proof that Mark and I have been planning this game, and been using this name since early 2005. The Proof.

The American Fighters
Mark has finished up the high-res (128x128[grin]) versions of all the American fighters that will be playable in the Dogfight Online. We're still tossing around the idea of having ground attack aircraft as well, but we're not sure yet. Anyways, here's a montage of all the fighters for the American side:



Well, I'll try and get some work done so that we'll have some actual gameplay to show you guys, but until then, you'll just have to imagine... Peace Out!

Your planes look amazing. I keep on sending those anonymous bribes to Mark to get him on my side, but I suppose making them anonymous wasn't the wisest move. Hrm. :-/

Although I honestly don't see any big deal about the name issue, I will argue that May 6th, 2005 is a little earlier. :P

Oh, I was under the impression that I had a wealthy secret admirer. Well- damn.

Stop spinning your web of lies you lying web-spinner, you spider of falsity, you Arachnid of Untruth!

Anyway, thanks for the comments! -SO is looking pretty sweet, by the way, it's a big part of the inspiration for this project(we're aiming for public 'tests'[wink]).

Like I said, I don't see it as a competition. We both have cool game projects that are both online. If anything, it magnifies the cool-osity...factor.
