Hello folks,
Ooh, how the time flies, another Friday already? My job is the least predictable of all in the project it seems. I tend to have a huge variety of tasks in my lap, all with five alarm bells ringing, and with no one to give them to. I’ve spent all week doing emergency translations and documents. Doing that while also trying to be a single father to two young kids means that there’s literally no time for anything, especially sleep.

When Friday comes around, Friday morning my time, Friday evening Moscow time, that means a very sudden silence. The kids go to their mother, and there’s no urgent work that has to be completed by tonight – Moscow’s off until Sunday night my time.

Then it’s time for me to relax, sit back, and write a Friday update – and after that, most incredible of all, I can finally go and catch up on some z’s.

Work-wise, we’re moving ahead full speed getting the 109 to a stable alpha stage. Tasks are getting smaller, while the results are becoming a lot more noticeable. We’ve spent all week on the cockpit, on animating the gauges (about a third of all objects now move properly), recording new sounds for Dora and Kurfurst, completing an authentic electrical system, writing out the entire set of keybord shortcuts for the K-4 mostly based on the Mustang. Runway take-offs are finally nice and straight.

The new render is still a bit wacky, and that’s completely outside our control, ED guys are putting crazy hours into it as well.

So, the best we can show on screenshots is a couple of interior shots with needles properly pointing at things other than zeroes.

Wow, they really need to hire Mystic Puma as public relations director...his updates are just a bunch of bitchin' about the minutia of his job.

I am sure MP would do it as a volunteer....:devilish:

(BTW - Sorry, I think this is my first time EVER criticizing Ilya. I am behind his efforts 120%)

Hehe I noticed it yesterday while reading it too. It's the second update he tells about bei g a si gle dad with two kkds and having no sleep and having to pendle from Californka to Moscow frequently.

Nevertheless, just skip to the second paragraph and look at the pictures. Not much useful i formation making you want to wait for the nexg update... but still, nice progress.

PS: I'm with Marmus on this. 120% behind it, 120 bucks in but sometimes... where's the face palm smiley?
