Join the contest Mezla! The more the merrier. :)

Thank you for your kind words, but I'm 'too small' to compete and lost in the real world* recently, so... 😉
I'm sure there will be lots of amazing missions created by the great minds of this community! 👊

*not 'nuff taffin' observed, rawr

Sounds like you're making good progress. I'm about 80% of the way through making the layout as well. As for the connections, I already refer to my only released level as well as the one that was 60% complete before I shelved it to work on the Christmas contest.

It's very much looking like I won't be able to make a contest FM with what's going on in RL - but I'll be happy to help out any participants with scripted setups (just describe what you want to do and it can probably be done) and advise on implementing new 2.10 features:

- advanced security cameras

- "x-ray" screens that can change the appearance (skin, model, render order) of things seen through them (not documented yet)

- official support for tracking secrets

Note that the contest deadline currently ends about 1-2 months before the expected 2.10 release date, so apart from x-ray screens (which have just been updated in 2.10 to support AIs) dev builds would be required until then.

Do you know if there's a complete list of new stuff added for each version?

A while back I made a rough summary of what's been added in recent versions:

  • 2.10: security camera overhaul, xrays expanded to AIs, official support for secrets, new furniture, subtitles
  • 2.09: animated prefab of the steam engine, new assets (furniture, fireflies, ambient AIs, blue fire elementals, Eve statue, naval clock)
  • 2.08: xrays, new monsters (beastmen, running zombies, rudimentary werebeast, flamebearing skeletons), new assets (body bags, scientific instruments/papers, covered furniture, various Dragofer's stuff including decorative ship models)
  • 2.07: more Springheel modules, a few new assets

Sorry to hear you have to drop out.

Of the cool new 2.10 features I already used tracking secrets.

Do you know if there's a complete list of new stuff added for each version?

"I really perceive that vanity about which most men merely prate — the vanity of the human or temporal life. I live continually in a reverie of the future. I have no faith in human perfectibility. I think that human exertion will have no appreciable effect upon humanity. Man is now only more active — not more happy — nor more wise, than he was 6000 years ago. The result will never vary — and to suppose that it will, is to suppose that the foregone man has lived in vain — that the foregone time is but the rudiment of the future — that the myriads who have perished have not been upon equal footing with ourselves — nor are we with our posterity. I cannot agree to lose sight of man the individual, in man the mass."...

- 2 July 1844 letter to James Russell Lowell from Edgar Allan Poe.

Yeah, the most detailed lists currently are the update changelogs on the Wiki, which are what my rough list was compiled from, together with my recollection. Would need someone to go through the SVN log to get a more precise list.

Yeah, I found stuff like that. But "some new modules" isn't super informative if I want to put in one that was specifically added in 2.08. I don't know how to find that out. Oh well, I suppose it doesn't really matter.

Did you check out the Moddb release articles?

      When I was a young man my father was so ignorant I could hardly stand to have him around. As I grew older I was amazed at how much the old man had learned in such a short time.
