2 updates in one week, you lucky things.

So I've found a much easier angle to take with my own involvement in this, and thats to coordinate the mod. It falls naturally to me to do this, and allows me more time on things beyond the mod when some of the other contributors have more time free.

With that in mind, at the weekend, TardisBlue knocked up some rather wicked looking GUI's for Drift Mode (see below).

Map of the Universe (Prototype)

So on the back of the last post, everyone's jumped on and started asking questions. What about companions? What about monsters?

They're all there. I don't plan on wasting the assets just because we don't have the time to work on this as much as we used to, but I want to release the more prominent aspects of the mod first.

You'll have more fun dicking around the Universe in a TARDIS than you will trying to work out why the hobo from North Vegas Square won't pick a locked door for you.

Current development is focusing on getting Spyduck to rewrite the Flight code. Once this is done, I'll tidy up the latter parts of the Regen, he'll work on the effect shaders and we'll finish off Drift Mode.

I want to get this out ASAP.

I can guarantee that dicking about in the TARDIS across the universe is probably the best thing I can do with my PC! :)

Kris said...

Unfortunately I sympathise, hence me offloading the development to the guys lol

Great to be hearing about the progress, D. Everything is looking and sounding bloody brilliant :)

"Current development is focusing on getting Spyduck to rewrite the Flight code. Once this is done, I'll tidy up the latter parts of the Regen" not that I'm complaining but wouldn't it be more productive to work on the regeneration while hes working on the flight code it seems like they would be two completely different things so it shouldn't be dependent on him finishing his part before you could work on yours. Either way I'm looking forward to it.

That GUI looks sexy. <3

Cool. Do do a good job with the regeneration though. Its the one part of the mod I really want not to be a rushed job. Bu-ut, I am looking forward to it coming out =)

Cool,cool cool cool.

Well if you could release the mod as a WIP progress mod that is a tiny bit Glitch Less then I'm sure that everything will be fine, and considering 6 out of 7 of the quest are complete I'm sure that it will be great. Although I'm greatly looking forward to some of the TARDIS features in store for us.

23 January,GET OUT OF THE WAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

kik4444 said...

Can someone please tell me: How BIG is the universe gonna be? Obviously it's infinite, but what I mean by that is - how many custom planets are there gonna be?

kik4444 said...

Also another thing I forgot to ask: Is there gonna be a regeneration limit? If so, is there gonna be a way to bypass the limit like the 11th doctor?

RedBird138 said...

Someone please correct me if I'm wrong with this, but the last time I heard there wasn't any custom planets, but instead the drift mode would play out like a "Choose your own adventure" style. With text options to make decisions.

As for the regen limit, I'm sure there is one, but guess we will find out eventually

Anonymous said...

I don't suppose we could see something about regeneration what you have done so far? :)

xg42 said...

As nice as that'd be its alot of pressure on Demeggy and co

RedBird138 said...

You mean like this? :)

Yea it pasted wrong for some reason, the huge space between the . And the com came from nowhere and I didn't realise. My bad.

kik4444 said...

Can anyone answer my previous question or will we have to wait for chris or SpyDuck or answer it?

RedBird138 said...

As I said, they hinted at a limit. Might be worth just re-reading older posts on the forums if anyone has questions:

What about something from monsters recently? :c

TheSpectre said...

I'm pretty sure most of the monsters on the mod are complete, other then whatever species is left for the next quest.

kik4444 said...

There are still some questions I don't get: Will the monsters be roaming the mojave or will they have their own custom planets? Chris said that you'll "have more fun dicking around the universe in a tardis". What does that mean exactly? That you'll be able to visit custom planets and fight monsters and complete quests on them, for example like rescuing crashed survivors on Skaro? Or is DRIFT flight something else?

FamusJamus said...

@Kik: Got some relevant post links here for you.

Monster encounters: 24th Oct
Updated TARDIS fli- err, "dicking around": 26th October
The Universe (in theory): 31st October, concept image.
Heck, just read all the October posts. XD

Haven't heard about any scripted side-quests, just the five main ones.

Quick question: when the update is released, where would we download it? Will you guys update the Nexus page or will there be a separate link? Thanks and keep up the good work :)

i am a big fan of Doctor Who and this mod, so i have a couple questions about your plans. Do you plan on adding more control rooms? Other screwdriver designs? Clothing? i played Fallout Who 3 which was fun when it worked, but rarely did so. Just a few questions from a concerned but impressed Whovian...

Annon. Check the forums

xg42 said...

I've gotta ask, will gallifrey and the time war appear?

RedBird138 said...

I really don't see how that would be included... If at all possible...

xg42 said...

Obviously it would take alot of time on demeggy and co's behalf but it would be more than possible

Carlos Daniel Ferrer said...

Well, I think we'll have to wait for the next update to know things better, it's like everybody is asking stuff(me too, of course), and Wave 2 is almost here, but(as everybody else) I'll ask something:
How will the "Universe Map" work?Where you can "find" it? And within the first question there are some other things:
How many planets you're going to add?
When travelling, you'll see all enemies on the same planet?
There will be "time-travel"?(something similar to "periods")
And, the last question is a question I've been wondering since I saw the picture of the Drift Mode: Will you add new places or you'll just change the way you travel with the TARDIS to Goodsprings, for instance?

RedBird138 said...

All these were answered and explained in the past posts and on the forums...

Seem a bit moody O.o No need to treat people like idiots not everyone's followed this from day one

RedBird138 said...

Rightly so, I meant no offence of course and apologise if I caused any. I just mean the info is pretty easy to find and catch up on

Carlos Daniel Ferrer said...

No need to apologize :)

xg42 said...

I can't wait, would be cool if you could do what they did on name of the doctor and look over the planet

Daniel as said...

More than 1 week,no updates

xg42 said...

They're hard a work I assume *I hope* just gotta be patient

Carlos Daniel Ferrer said...

true,true.

xg42 said...

Anon if they told you that then you were trusted with it so they wouldn't tell you anything again.. If they wanted to tell us a date they would so unless you're just making rumours at which point it's putting unnecessary pressure on the team :/

TheSpectre said...

I'm pretty sure you all won't know anything until demeggy decides to make the next post, so yes I agree rumors aren't necessary for the team nor the FOW community. ~TheSpectre~
