Just ran the alpha and I must say it does look rather spiffing. Just dropped in to say that, from my experience these projects usaully fall down because the makers think "Ah heck, no one cares anyway"...I care and if you stop it I shall personally hunt you all down ;)

On side note I saw in some of the screenshots that you have some cloud maps. I think I recognised the earth maps frm the ones found with the XPlanet program. this lead me to hinking that if you want cloud maps that update why not do what Xplanet does and download the REAL cloudmaps every three hours or so. it won't be terribly dynamic but would look rather cool.

Keep it up, if I could program I would volunteer, if I could draw I would volunteer...I am not that flexible but you need a cheerleader?

Can you write? Can you help think of ideas? Can you do anything else? If so, the project may have a place for you.

And the alpha does look great, but remember it is only the alpha, the final will look even better.
I'm only partially inactive. :P I can still be reached at cpl.facehugger@gmail.com, and via PM. Preferably the former.

You could always learn, you don't need to be able to draw necessarily to model. There are two distinct phases to model design, concepts and modelling, when it comes to the model you will be provided with a front and side view so it won't be much trouble to model without drawing experience.

About the cloud maps, one is enough really, if it rotates then it won't even be noticable that it is the same, besides real cloud maps are very thick and would take away the level of detail on the countries so one from NASA will surfise I think.

Actually, a cheerleader would be handy. What color pompoms do you have access too? :devillaugh:

But seriously, we can always use people to help cheer us along. Start reading up in the laboratory forums and see what you can do.

Yeah, under the actual uniforms, cause if the aliens saw it, they would definitely come hunting for US :P
