IIRC CA cut down movement classes a lot, and there are only around 8-12 now.

I have 4 currently. A 1x1 for infantry and 2x2's, a 4x4 for 3x3's and 5x5's, one for a hover unit and another for 15x15, standard for buildings, which don't move much, anyways.

It really doesn't take that long to path. You don't need 1 per unit or anything...

Non-moving buildings do not need movementclass, wasn't that obvious?

Pink text is uncalled for. I'm not posting pictures probably until I have the first units ingame. When I post pictures people just tear apart what I'm doing without seeing it in action. This is on top of my other reason, that I have no idea whether what I'm currently making will actually be part of the mod by the time it's releasable, so if I posted pictures now all I'd get later is, "where's unit x, you said it was going to be in"... etc. It's happened before with AA, a lot. People get the feeling that I'm unreliable....

Finished 11 more models this last week. I have a basic framework of all the necessary units and structures now, I'll spend a while fleshing the in-between units out.

I'm also spending a lot of the time I'm working, thinking up unit concepts, etc, etc. Got a lot interesting ideas...

For instance. My plan from way back when was to merge my various mods into one implausibly-balanced supermod. The beaty was, the various sides are totally unlike each other. But what's preventing me from taking those basic race ideas and reworking them into unrelated, copyright-free original works? Instead of an Advance Wars mod, there's an advance-wars-ish race. Instead of a GEM mod, there's a GEMmish race. Instead of AA, there's a TA-like race. Good idea, right? I think it could work out. My basic designs for that Abolition thing... I know it sounds crazy but I actually struck a balance between them. Really I know it sounds impossible...

Soo... since what everyone is expecting is a TAish mod, I will start primarily working on the TAish race, then expand to other races down the line. Sound good?

Also... a name popped into my head which I think I'll use for the TA race. Epic pun. I looove those.

I don't want to be overly optimistic, but so far I'm ahead of the schedule I had planned. Things are working well... I've got a couple units animated already, thanks to the fact that I'm not bothering with fancy walk scripts.

Also I just got a raise! ^^ Getting one of those drawing tablets to help with texturing at the end of the month, I think.

The name of the side, I hope, is something more creative than Leg, Spiral, or Bulge.

Sleska should name it, since he embodies all of the ota ideals.

hmm, he never plays his precious BA, he just says "I havent played in a long time" or "I suck at playing" and then just specs.

Once again I request a sarcasm tag for my previous post.
