Holidays!

#1 Post by Tyreth » Thu Dec 23, 2004 11:59 pm

Taking a look back on this year, we released the first two versions of FreeOrion. We have been around for 1 year and 9 months. There's a lot of work ahead of us, and once 0.3 is released we can expect things to be different - with more forum visitors, and hopefully more valuable contributors.

Thanks again to everyone who's helped work with the game - but especially to tzlaine for his excellent work coding FreeOrion, and those who've helped him, Aquitaine for ensuring that we have a document to build the game from and listening to all your ideas, Miu for helping ensure the game will look good, and LithiumMongoose for the music - the first track of which we included with the 0.2 release.

With holidays coming up again, I'm about to depart on my ritual vacation. This means I'll be absent with little or no internet access for roughly a week.

Have a great holiday and see you all in the new year.

Now, let's hope he meant "more (valuable contributors)" and not "(more valuable) contributors" :twisted:

Turns out I have limitted net access, rather than no net access.

It was attempts by the Santy Worm to infect our forums, but it wasn't working - that didn't stop it from trying though with numerous attempts. A filter has been implemented to reject all its attacks, so it would still be occurring right now, but just not reaching the forums.

For those interested, you can sign up to the announcements list for more details when something happens:

I will be on holiday myself until shortly after the new year. nowhere interesting, just not working here. :) I will be catching up a lot of the tech tree stuff and figuring out what the next step is in terms of making use out of what we've got and determining what precisely we need to be working for when I get back.
