Looks like the Beta version will be the official version, since
I've upgraded my computer and it no longer likes to run Build... feel free
to distribute it.
ßETA VERSION RELEASED
I've decided just to release this damned level as soon as I can.
It IS complete, except for one or two places, but I don't think I'd ever
get around to finishing them anyway. All the bugs may not be gone,
so download this at your own risk, and please report any bugs to firstname.lastname@example.org.
New screenshots added, most of which are just updates of some of
the old ones that showed areas that have significantly changed.
You're probably asking, "What's taking so long?" Well, I
got a job and went back to school, so free time is sparse. There's
very little left to complete (only a few touch-ups and finishing the final
area), so it'll hopefully be out by the end of the year... which will make
this project a year old. Eeek!
Due to the fact that I no longer have a job (temporarily) and school
hasn't started again yet, I've managed to complete a lot more of the level.
I'd estimate it's about 90% complete, with only a few more things to add
and touch up. The Secret Area count is up to 26 and will be over
30 when released. Many Secret Areas are recursive (secret areas inside
secret areas) and a few are very hard to find. I'm also working
on a special GAME.CON that will be distributed with the level, that changes
a lot of settings and makes the game even sillier than it is now.
September is the most likely release date now (unless I get a job real
soon). Most of the screenshots below are of areas that haven't changed
much. I'll probably add a couple more screenshots before the level
Due to my current real-world job, work is progressing slowly on
the level... some areas still need to be completed and others retouched.
Fall is most likely when it'll be done.
Three new screenshots added. The level is about 60% complete
now, and the majority of work remaining is in adding detail and making
aesthetic changes. Multiple keycards will be in this level too.
I'm fast running out of sectors and walls so I'll have to wipe out some
unessential areas, but I hope to have more than 30 secret areas... It'll
probly be done by late summer.
Six new screenshots added.
Fifth Reich Page created. This sequel to Fourth Reich is
still in its infancy but is already looking great. Early predictions
of a completion date are Summer 98 (but don't count on it). I'll
try to beat Duke Forever's release though.
