Where are the new Drakes?

Post by Longbow »

Hi,
Anyone know where I can find an update or a thread etc. of neoriceisgood's progress with the new drake graphics, there is an old thread here http://www.wesnoth.org/forum/viewtopic.php?f=18&t=17424 but this seems to have died nearly a year ago. Even just an estimate of when they will be in game would be good :D
Sorry but I am so impatient and these are the most ultimately cool graphics in the game :roll:

IIRWIIR.

Neoriceisgood still pops his head up occasionally to let us know he's not dead. I think he's still working on them.

Perhaps he has been kidnapped by a player who hates drakes,
Shame there is no updates on his progress though, I hate to be kept in the dark but ty for the quick reply.

If I had kidnapped him, you would know - there would suddenly be a very suspicious stream of high-quality sprites (but completely unanimated) coming in for the Orbivm eras' factions.

Yes, the tracker has a binary message on his skull "Help me I'm trapped in Turin's basement -Neo". Turin, give him back! :wink:

TBH he was kidnapped by a very important developer for a different project.

Yeah... you guess well. I kidnapped him. What is this project I'm talking about? Stay tuned.

Well, wherever he is, his kidnapper obviously lets him access his deviant art page, and work on "ricemon": http://neoriceisgood.deviantart.com/

I'd say September 30th sounds like a good release date for the entire Ancient Era. You?

Sirp stole him - he's forced Neo to work on Silvertree IIRC. :P

We might have a few factions done by then but AFAIK the monsters are the only one that's even started coding. :eng:
/me notices that he hasn't coded any monsters in over a month. :shock:
