EV: Nova Beta 3 Released to Testers
9:37 AM | Andy Largent | Comment on this story
The Escape Velocity: Nova progress log has been updated twice recently with word that the latest build of this Ambrosia Software title is now in the hands of testers. Version 1.0.0b3 is the third beta privately released, with another revision currently being prepared for testing. It is hoped that b4 will be the final beta before the game is released, though this is of course dictated by any lingering bugs found in the build.
Another update in the log also notes they now have an 'official' to-do list for the game. This should help sto peed up its release by ensuring nothing important is left out. Here's a clip:
ATMOS (Hobart division) has finished making the monolithic "to-do" list.Glad to hear good progress is being made with the much-anticipated project. Stay tuned to IMG for the latest on EV: Nova as it nears release.
That might not sound like much, but the creation of it involved a manual, "one-by-one" check of ~everything~ in the game that's in our demesne.
We now know what needs doing, which helps. It's a lot.
