I could be witty, but I have no energy.
I had 1.7 about ready to roll on Monday, however, we ran into a crash-to-desktop issue with MapWriter and Extra Utilities. Rather than distribute an unofficial build of MapWriter, I decided to wait… that was my mistake (MapWriter is open source and the author allows derivative so I would have been more than within the right to redistribute my own build… derp). Real Life has reared it’s ugly head and without going into detail (if we chat in Mumble or not-on-the-record, I’ll tell you but it’s boring) I do not have a less-than-12-hour day at all this week… and I’m currently on something where the schedule is not a suggestion (it’s something that causes us to cry at our past optimism thinking we would get things done faster than they are going).
On a related note, Starbound beta for those that pre-ordered drops tomorrow. I will do my best to get a multiplayer server up when I get home… but that depends on how stable the dedicated executable is. If you’re bummed about a lack of AAA titles that aren’t releasing until well after the new year… check out all the cool stuff that is literally dropping every day on the PC indie scene 😉 (brief rundown… Maia, Starbound,Chroma Squad, Wasteland 2, Wayward Manor, Pixel Piracy, Fire Point… just to name a few… you can google ;)).
I’ll leave this here… (Warning: There is some foul language… good stuff near the 3 minute mark ;))
