Only news is not really good news..
I haven't actually touched it for a long time. I did run through it the other day to look back at what's going on with it, what needs to be done still, and so on.
Mostly stuff that are left to do on it is stuff like item models and of course weapons. The level structure and textures are actually all done.
Well, at least we know that most of the stuff is done, that's kinda good news.
Personally, I wouldn't expect this mod updated for at least a couple years to come, since you're working on that Quake project - you just can't work on multiple projects simultaneously, but that doesn't mean I give up on it. I still check this thread from time to time to drool over the screenies (please don't take them down!) and get inspired, so I'll be around to encourage if you ever need it
I hope that once the Quake mod is done, you will take a couple of months or how much more time is needed to complete the last items and other models. I don't think you'll need to work too much on coding the weapons; the D3 fist, pistol, machinegun and chaingun basically function like updated Wolf3d weapons, so they just need the models and new animations.
Oh, and I'm also looking forward to the Quake mod, although I'm not actively checking out progress on that so much. I know it will be exciting to play once it's done.
