    You reading this?

    I just discovered this journal a day or so ago, so now I'm reading it. Looks like a fun game!

    Why yes, I would love to try on some gear...

    First, that's just completely kick ass. That rifle is huge. Second, I think we have the same pair of glasses. So much that I actually noticed that they look similar.

    Awesome library. Interesting that there's a book on spacecraft from a time period that hasn't passed yet. Maybe you know about this already, but if you have a Barnes & Noble near you, check out the discount section. It seems that 50% of it is awesome military books. I just picked up "The Official Military Atlas of the Civil War" for $20 (normally $70). I almost gave in and got a comprehensive book about aircraft carriers and one about the history of forts and fortifications too. Oh, and a question from that entry with the first spaceship montage in it. Are numbers 6 and 7 based at all on the P-38 series? That just jumped into my mind first thing when I saw them.

    Quote:Original post by Prinz Eugn *if you can spot me in the one of the pictures in the slideshow, I'll give you a cookie. Trick is, what do I look like? Back row, fifth from the right. You posted that senior picture of yours a while back. You look pretty distinctive so I remembered. I like oatmeal cookies, but not tracking cookies. Can't wait for Dogfight. I thought Angels 20 was pretty awesome.

    Sucks about the academy rejection. I really hope you get in next year; at least you could be the oldest C4C, which you could use to your advantage. I like the pictures, especially the retirement ones. My dad is retired Air Force as well, but he didn't get hosed down (he was a dentist and medical administrator). We actually visited the academy last summer on a road trip (and stayed in the AMAZING DV quarters there) and it is beautiful. And huge. I don't guess they let you land on their strip when you visited, right? Good luck with your game!

    Help me pick the Urban Empires box art....

    I like #2 actually. The logo with the crosswalk guy is cool. #1 is the second-best in my opinion. Awesome stuff, I can't wait for the beta.

    Just about done with the City Editor...

    Sweet. The terrain really makes a difference in making things look more natural. All I can say is...when do we get to play?

    Early Basement / Headquarters / Illegal businesses

    Wow...pretty awesome stuff. I'm really enjoying hearing about the developing gameplay. I like the idea about the basements and businesses. I could only think of one more business, an illegal weapons shop. I don't know if that would fit with the game or if it might come under one of the other types, but it popped into my head.

    Final rain effect....behold

    Great looking atmosphere. I think the music from the radio player helped the mood too. Is rain going to do anything functional, like decrease vehicles' grip on the road or anything?

    Contest!

    Blue shirt. Down in front. I think he's (or she's?) been hiding something from us. But seriously...I'd go with one of the guys in the black shirts. Perhaps not PSP black shirt guy.

    New Map #2 'Ocean View'

    Do you still have the list of people who signed up last year? If you don't, I'm definitely still interested. The beach map looks great.

    A New Map

    Cool! It reminds me a bit of a piece of the Charles River going through Boston that has a nice wooded park along the banks. I can see hiding my gansters in there and shooting up any rivals who go by, perhaps to fuel up at the gas station. Good looking stuff.

    I apologize....

    Good luck with the medical stuff, I hope you get past it. I stayed out there at the academy this summer when we went by on a trip. We watched the cadets do some drilling; it certainly is cool looking. They've also got the most kick-ass Distinguished Visitor quarters (My dad's a retired AF Colonel, though not an Academy Grad) of any AFB, in my opinion. It's really great that you want to go there, my dad couldn't get me to even think about a service academy. Can't wait to play the new demo too!

    New User Interface

    I suppose this could be considered a little superfluous, but... Perhaps you could have different backgrounds on the UI for the different gangs. Like I remember seeing an Italian mob style gang in the game. Seeing an graffiti covered industrial brick wall on the UI doesn't quite jive with playing as them. Perhaps each gang could have slightly more custom-tailored UI images, for that immersive feel. It's just a little something extra though, not a deal-breaker. I like the new UI though. Clicking through 10 windows to do something isn't very fun, especially if you're trying it in real time.
