Wave 2, Goodbye Mr Smith

Hello Summer UK, Goodbye Doctor 11,

Matt Smith's announcement to leave the show at Christmas has come at something of a half-surprise to me, as I was only predicting a month ago he'd be bowing out soon to pursue his Hollywood ventures. When it was recently announced by him he'd be staying on, I put that theory to rest, but here we are, a day just like that day back in October, when David Tennant announced his departure.

Sad times, very sad times, but also very exciting times. I'll save my euology for nearer the time.

Mod-wise, it's been a crazy week. We've not gotten anywhere near road-testing the latest wave, and with my vacation just around the corner, looks unlikely we'll see a release before the end of June.

Bearing in mind the decision to not rush it, I've decided to recombine Companions (see previous post) with 2.0 after all.

I'm also looking into changing the layout of the blogsite in the near future, so keep an eye on that.

There'll be a few dev updates throughout the week, but then it'll be rather quiet for a week or so.

Aw, I was getting so pumped! But I understand, and I'm glad you made this decision instead of rushing the product. Good to hear we'll be getting companions with the rest of wave 2 though!! Enjoy your time off!

This is a bit of an odd thing, but would it be possible for you guys to make the companions not crowd around the TARDIS console while in flight? Maybe it's just me, but I've often had some trouble with followers getting in my way and causing me to not reach the controls I need to hit quickly enough.

I have had that problem, I usually just tell them to wait nearer the door or something like that

Where download the second wave?

Wave 2.0 isn't up for download yet.

The companions will 'sandbox' in the TARDIS. That is to say they will hang around specific areas of the ship and not always the control room...

If people have having issues with followers getting in the way during flight, just tell them to keep distance before flying the TARDIS. Works perfectly for me.
