Also the mailbox in /fairgrounds (only) is a test clickable object. plan was to have sound fx added but there is a bug we need work out first. Hopefully next test will have sound added.

Best of luck to all AE Staff that visting Dragon Con!

Another Crazy Week!

This week been a busy one as we plan and testing new features for the game like SMASHable (via mouse click) objects (trash cans, lamp poles, fire hydrant and mail boxes.. do all smashables have two words in them?). Another feature we have planned is the phone booth (still in concept stage) where you can change your appearance like at Beleen's shop.

Nulgath vs Dage Battle Poll ended with Tree Trunk of Klunk as winning item (Giant Rare version also in shop!). Join in the newest Battle Poll "Tech vs Steampunk"...winning item will be finished shaded and colored to be added to BP shop and other gone forever!

The HS team is working on different art projects all at once (we were working on updating Scamps Groceries to be a walk around room with food fighting items!). But I had forgot about Dragon Khan (that due to there was not one last year instead we had the 30 days of suggestions). I designed a Dragon Khan booth and assigned the team to start working on dragon themed gear for next week. Scamps is still on list for an update (just no release date). Also we will also be doing something for Labor Day!

While people start heading back to school we will be working even harder as the plan is to get storyline in motion. Since I started as Creative Lead I had not realized there were so many holidays in a year!

Late Update Info

Many things this past week have caused delays in plans. Cinderella was out of town, and Polistar, Zheenx, DrDOT and Postmaster general all have things to deal with in their lives (school, work, vacations, etc.). I took advantage of their absence to take the time to upgrade my hardware.

Updating a computer at some point comes to an end and one needs a clean start. So, I overhauled the OS (Operating System) and at same time installed major updates I could not use in the past- what this means is that I’ve modernized my system and should be able to work with a greater variety of file types, and run new top of the line security software to keep my files and everyone else safe. I’ve also upgraded my memory so my system can handle the new operating system coming out next year. 

Then death came in form of a power outage which killed my hard drive with all my artwork! As I began hard drive repair software my network died (power outages are a tech nightmare!) leaving me without a way to access to the lab to get latest files to work with while I repair the HDD. Being your own PC repair person is an asset! Good news is the PC is running better than it was two years ago and I was able to save all major files (four years worth!). So, that’s been my week. Now I’ll working hard to get last of the Blockbuster items this week. This will be last week for any new items as we move onto Labor (or Labour) Day Event.

As I said Cinderella was out of town this week but she did help as much as she could, and we all thank her for that... (too bad she not here to fix my typos LOL). Edit from Cinderella- I’m back home now, so yes I am here to fix your typos. How do you function without me? 

Special thanks to the assistant developers as they learn the HeroSmash way of life as they try keep their own lives in balance. They been creating some amazing stuff and are getting even better!So in short sorry for the delays, but you know chaos it does not give any warnings... Speaking of which the Dage vs Nulgath Batlle Poll is coming to an end... who will win!?!
