You sure you didn't move to Alaska or Canada? Man, in my city the temps average around 0C, but mostly on positive values.

temps went as high as -18C in the sun (or about -23C in the shade).

Hmmmmm... ;)

Any customers or is everything frozen?

The real silver lining is right there and you feel taken elsewhere.

89 and you're feeling just fine.

Photo taken by me just as I was leaving work. It rained almost all day long, except for 30 minutes and the pic was at the tail end of the clearing. Storms were rolling in from the West and the sun was trying to peek out from behind the clouds but wasn't able to. Posted Image

87, not going to heaven.

Nice photo! In such nice nature photos the thing that always pokes my eye is anything man-made. That damn wire in the lower right corner, dammit! :D

You noticing a beautiful scenery tells that the mood is good!

Nice, You can get some rather striking visuals when the sun is behind heavy rain clouds.

I had really heavy fog this morning. It is dangerous but fascinating as well. It's like you are in a small private world of your own with nothing beyond the mist. The bus trip across the harbour bridge felt more like a ride on a plane.

Sooner or later (praying for later) I'll be looking at this thread as a manual.But for now, I'm just reading. :D

Um, the workbench isn't the thing getting cleaned often, it's the long table in the backroom which I painted in gray ployurethane.

Oops, my mistake, Master Coater Zombie. Backroom table, The Gray, duly acknowledged. Posted Image

I rest assured too of continued concord given your assurance of ongoing equality in treatment for workbench and cart alike. Posted Image

It looks as if you threw a glass board over it! Niiiice!

Looking at that workbench now, Zombie, I have no doubt whatsoever how much easier it has become to clean it. Look at that sheen! :)

As for the cart, it could probably stand to get some more love from you. If you just keep pampering the workbench instead, in plain sight of it like that, it's going to get spiteful. ;)

Alright, Zombie, you've made your case. Can't argue with the benefits in practicality of use, or the low expense figures. ;)

The table does look good in the picture. Just try not to give your coworkers too many paint-fumes induced headaches right at the start of the year. :P

Don't miss out as the first details about the game's actual setting and mechanics surface at last!



Someone tell this guy it's X-COM !! Julian Gollop created X-COM not XCOM.

Posted Okim on 16 January 2019 - 01:05 PM

Yeah, i`m glad to be back into modding SOTS once again. In those many years since i started and finished the first mod of mine for SOTS - i graduated, married, got two kids one of which is now at school!
And still as you said - there is nothing out there that is equal or even close to SOTS. Even Stellaris with its overdosed variety of choices and stuff is not that inspiring as SOTS.

As for the mod`s playable version - it will take a while. I`m progressing way too slowly. The pace is around 3 models + textures for them in 2 weeks. And to cover at least DEs for a single faction i need 45 such models (each one is a section).

Rough estimates are summer. Around this time i might have 2-3 factions ready.

-- == --

I would like to ask for some assistance since there is smth i can`t do myself for this mod. I need voice actors!
Since all the factions in the mod are humans and vanilla`s are aliens with unique accents and traditions inspired phrases - i need people to record all of the phrases for each faction. Probably also a person to write these down in a proper way.

So, if there are volunteers - please let me know!

Wow, great to see you again, Okim!

Your dedication is unbelievable. Modding a game this old... I'm not too surprised though, to me SOTS Prime is still the best space strategy I played. What I played is a big factor now, there are A LOT of games I missed. Last I tried was Endless Space 2 and it was ok. It has a lot of good moments - especially battles - but the overall picture was "nothing really breathtaking".

You mod sounds very interesting! Kinda like "The Mandate" promised to be as far as factions go. When do you think you'll have something playable?
