Damn Shiv, I told you to wait with it until I'll talk with MP on private. Ok, as things have gone so far, here's whole thing.
Everything begun with Phoenix project which started in Febuary 2006. At first small project with 70 missions, three team members and partially-based on Inferno R1. We had little ambitions, but soon we've realised that plot had huge potential. During seven months we've made virtually no tech progress, but made planning and finally came to conclusion that Phoenix will be Total Conversion. Earth Defence started in June 2006 (so 4 months younger) by Shiv as TC from begin. Plans for it changed 2-3 times (don't remember how many :p ), but it required large changes in plot (firstly it was supposed to be only more beautiful Inferno). Earth Defence was sitting without any serious progress until October when lots of people joined the team. By end of November Earth Defence merged its team with Phoenix. Both projects are separate, but for now we all (currently 15 team members) concentrates on ED. Phoenix is now inactive until ED release which will be somewhere in 2008, however after that we'll ask for another project hosting. :p
Now some tech data about project. Project is now leaded by four team leaders, me, Mekton, Shiv and Hery in democracy&persuasion rule. Mission count will be around 30 (still it's for Chapter 1, we don't know yet if there will be Chapter 2), model count something around 150 (everything will be more or less new, or rather modified), plot is now not as good as Phoenix one, but we try to get it near to it, also it's more reallistic in some things than FS(2) and most campagins.. And well...we need hosting here because freespace.pl couldn't support it (final download will be probably something around 1GB). Currently all we're doing in ED is planning, however real work should start soon.
Well that's it. I'd like to discuss some details on ICQ if possible.
