9:50 AM | Eddie Park | Comment on this story
Ambrosia Software has updated their EV Nova Progress Log with another significant update. According to the posting, EVN is now in its completed/compiled Alpha 3 build. For those unfamiliar with EVN, it is a space exploration/adventure game, set in Ambrosia's Escape Velocity universe, in which players can roam from one end of the galaxy to the other experiencing various adventures and senarios all the while.
The highlights listed for the current game engine are massively improved speed under both OS 9 and X, various bugfixes, and that the majority of the features are in place as well as frozen at revision zero.
The current graphics engine details indicate that landing scenes, stellar objects, outfit pictures, explosions, and weapon sprites are 100% complete. The graphics are currently frozen at revision two.
As far as the story goes, all of the storyline text is complete, 5 of the 7 storylines are "missionalised," and the storyline feature set is frozen at revision four.
