    Post Vacation? Oh?

    Hi everyone. I'm still alive; I haven't gotten into any car accidents recently. I've only been in the emergency room about two times within the last four months.

    You're probably wondering what's going on with the mod. Well, there's good news. A lot of features have been finished, even though progress has been slow. I've been held up frequently by college and work, and I apologize for that. We're not trying to act like 3drealms.

    Currently, we're in need of additional weapon model artists. In all likelihood, we'll be looking for even more team members once we continue working on Sven Co-op 2.

    A few other co-op mods have started working on Half-Life 2, and you're welcome to try them out. Turtle Rock Studios has also begun work on some sort of retail zombie slaughtering co-op game with the source engine. I guess we jump-started the co-op gaming industry.

    Just keep in mind, Sven Co-op 2 will play much differently than what is or what will be available. We have a lot of fresh-as-muffins ideas.

    Half-Life 1 isn't dead yet, but we're not stupid either. As what was said before, we'll be sure to move to the Half-Life 2 engine when we're properly finished with the first.

    We'll be showing off a small new feature for v3.5 Bronze soon.

    Edit: It looks like the Sveney Sven Co-op Server is back online. Visit their new website at www.sveney.com

    Is it safe to say then that this will not be a 2006 release or are you planning on something good?
    Im refuse to ask the obvious but i'm sure many are still wondering

    Great, it's nice to see another update . Seriously though, take your time on 3.5 because the longer it takes you guys to make it, the better it'll be. I would help you guys out, but I don't know how to make weapon models, only to map :P. Looking forward to the next mod update!

    That's good and bad to hear. It's good to hear you're ok, but it's bad to hear you've been in the emergency room a few times already. I wonder what feature you're talking about.

    Thanks for the update. If I saw that "Bug Slaughtered" news one more tiem I thought I was going to scream. Either way, I hope you can keep yourself safe Sniper, and maybe a Q1 2007 release? Eh? Possible?

    That said, don't rush the project at all. I would rather be playing 3.5 in 2008 than 3.crap in 2006.

    Horray, an update! Go, Sniper! Go!
    It is good to hear that progress is being made, even though it is not so fast.



    Post the next one in Norwegian, as the language of vikings was the Norwegian language.
    Hawt?
    Somewhat unsure about which country the actual comic came from, though.

    How many more features does bronze need? I'd understand if you were working towards a gold only release, but surely there's more than enough features already for bronze.

    I don't think Sniper is currently adding any features to bronze. It's mostly bug fixing and finishing models.

    The funnies are the only thing the newspaper is good for.
