Quick September Update - Posted Friday, 29th September 2006 by Don
September has raced past like a steam train and we've been rushed along with it. You might be wondering what's been keeping us so busy... Well, some of the answers you'll find in the original CCDF news post and others can be found in the forums. For example, The Biodome Community Project is coming on superbly if you've been watching that thread, and if you fancy making something for the project yourself then do feel free to let us know!
Naturally there's a lot of secret projects in the works and Liam has been racing round like a mad thing helping others out as well. We're all just hoping that everything is going to come together in time for Creatures' big birthday on November 11th. So look out for more action over October as each of the development teams and individuals begin to meet their release dates. For those of you who haven't yet thought about what you'd like to do to celebrate this year, there are plenty of projects looking for assistance in the forums and we hope to add more development guides to help you guys out shortly too. Yup, its all go at the moment.
Don't forget we're into the Creatures Community *Development* Festival now, so you'll be seeing more people racing around madly working, posting development support requests for their new agents or sending out teaser screenshots as opposed to actual releases for a while. In fact, after watching Liam multi-tasking over these past few weeks I now know what the elves must feel like in the run up to Christmas each year
We've also had a few emails recently asking to see interviews and articles dedicated to certain members of the community, so naturally we're looking into all your requests and will fulfill as many of them as we can. We'll be covering this area in the Albian Awards as well, so stay tuned for more updates soon. In the mean time if any of you fancy writing a development article on any topic - I've seen some lovely grass effects in the forums recently that would make excellent walkthroughs - then do please drop us a message. The more advice and information that can be offered to new developers the more it helps us all!
