Final Level Segment: Dam

I’m working on the last segment of level 1 at the moment. It’s a huge dam where turrets will align and gun boats will cruise. It’s current 3d model revision looks like this:

Preparing Nordenfelt Presales

I’ve set myself a goal:

Presales will start early in September!

Therefore I did some research and design work for the new landing page of It’s quite a prickly affair because look and feel will have impact on sales. Aside this there is much more to do before presales can start …

Goal-Driven Schedule

I’ve updated the time schedule and made it goal-driven and the features more prunable. Up to now too many of them could hardly be omitted. Further the features themselves became more scalable. Imagine sub-features of features, recursive so to speak.

I think the presales start in September is the most interesting point in this list. Nordenfelt 0.4 is quite dated now (February 2011). Presales will start with the new version 0.5.
