  • Announcement: Nightblade Development Updates

    It's about time for an update as to the progress of Nightblade. I would like to start out by thanking all of you for your patience with the dev team as we try to balance turnover and real life with progressing the development of the mod. I'm sure you all have noticed that there have been a lack of releases and updates to the game. This ultimately comes down to the fact that we do not have the manpower to continue work on Nightblade. The team was largely being pushed on thanks to the work of Immortius and Illuminus, who have been invaluable members in keeping this project going. Unfortunately due to real life commitments, Immortius will no longer be able to make many contributions to the team. As a result, the team has been evaluating what the next step should be.

    We have come to decide that Nightblade's work should not end here, but serious changes have to be made. As a result, I have stepped up with the intentions to reorganize and reignite the development of Nightblade. The first step in this will be to recruit heavily to ensure we have the right people with the right skill set to produce a mod that is of Black Cat Games quality. From there we will be making practical and purposeful pushes to finish the mod in a timely manner. The decision as to whether we will continue to release alpha versions of our progress hasn't been made yet, but I promise that in any case you will be kept up-to-date as to our progress. Ultimately we are making this game for you and highly value your commitment to this community and for supporting our efforts. I will be posting more information about our recruiting efforts within the week.

    Thank you for the update Biohazard.

    A small question. Since there is a new recruitment category on the forums, maybe the NB team can make a sticky thread where the current needs are listed? Like coders, mappers, textures etc. so people can have a look on what is currently needed?

    (Am I guessing right that the NB 'help wanted' page is outdated at the moment?)

            Does this mean we start with the secret forum again? Ninja jammies 'n all?

                Q. If Immortius isn't around to do as many updates, does that mean the team has no coder anymore?

                    Someone on the Dark Mod forum asked about NightBlade, and if you guys needed help. I directed him to this thread. I hope he can help you guys!

                      Good luck bio! I hope your experience in organizing the very successful TOD tournaments helps you get the development of NB done.

                        Hey guys, BrokenArts is talking about me. Right now I've done a little modeling and map design. At the moment I'm trying to make a Mech Beast for The Dark Mod. But if you need extra assets and models I will be willing to help you guys. If you want to see my low poly Mech Beast work head over to Dark Mod and check out the thread "Sneak peak of Mech Beast". If you think my skills are sufficient for you feel free to pm me at the Dark Mod site.

                        Later!

                          Having people contribute individual models etc. may be worth considering as we could get some decent content from people who don't have time to be full time staff.
