Myself or Lucika will update this for your guys sake every now and then. So, for a first update, Lucika and I are tied up in RL and other projects. The first 5 or 6 missions are in a Beta stage right now, but since we can't find whoever used to be our beta tester/testers, he and I have to do that to. Currently, there are about 30-50 missions to do (don't laugh and scoff us, it's doable.)

Please don't ask when the demo will be out. We don't know yet ourselves.

So there you have it. Expect more updates in the weeks to follow. :)

Well, since it's been 3 weeks, I guess I should fill you all in again.

I haven't been able to get anything done sadly, as for Lucika, I'm not sure. Hopefully, I'll be able to work on it a bit during the Christmas break, but I'm not 100% sure how it will work out. Since not much has changed lately, everything is about the same as 3 weeks ago.

Okay, a quick update.

As for 1) I am back and I start to FRED the missions in Syrk.
2) Since those missions won't require much of a modding, I assume I'll be able to put together a 30-60 seconds teaser in two weeks or so.
3) As stated at least a trillion times, we're recruiting, basically for each and every position. From FREDders through testers to modders, everyone's help is highly appreciated.

Also, I'd hereby thank dragonsniper for keeping the forum (and basically the campagin) alive in the past few months as I had a really tough time in RL (five disasters, all at the same time).

And yeah, I'll sticky this thread.

Just a quick look at the progress:

Story - 300% done (no typo)
Mods - 90-100% done but Implementation - 5% done thus Teaser video - 0% done
FREDding - 12% done (just a quick estimation, of course)

I launched a personal development blog, most of the updates will be there but all the material and stuff will be here. So try to keep an eye out on both sites, right? :)

Yay, time for some juicy screenshots!
No mods implemented yet, hence the Ulysses and the Herc.

Subspace as you've never seen it before.


Chased in Syrk.


Something is seriously wrong here. Don't ask what.


Guess the priority set on "Chase player" :P




Revenge for War of the Worlds!!!


And a nice explosion for you as a bonus.

Another update. Nothing overly exiting though. We were not able to even get a teaser trailer together, due to "technical problems" (i.e. Windows Movie Maker being a piece of crap and uncooperative.) So, hopefully the screenies will hold off the mob for now. :D

Progress is slow at the moment, but new screenshots by the end of the month may be possible if you are good and patient, and if Lucika feels up to it. :D

So that's the weekly update. Expect more to come later.

I can only hope that you've meant "Ship implementation done." :P:D

I think that we forgot to mention the fact that we have our FSWiki page now:

Ladies and gentlemen!
Project Syrk has came to an important day: we've reached our one-year anniversary!
That's right, it was exactly 365 days ago when a naive and infant Lucika contacted the HLP community with high hopes and great plans about his campaign idea in this very topic.

As a celebration, we've put together a little video for you to see what kind of awesome stuff we've managed to put together!
Without further ado, I present the Glorious Link.
Enjoy! :)

Weekly update:

FREDing has started on several missions. Ships and weapons are being tweaked. Everything is moving along at a nice pace for the time being.
