Hey katie,

Did you get a chance to take a look at the art stuff for milestone 2? Is there 
anything in there you are interested in signing on for?

I have heard there are some issues, etc. but I have yet to try it. It is 
dependent on how the texture is setup etc. like uv projection and what kind of 
geometry. I am going to run some test scenarios and see. I will holler at the 
results. =)

rest of the models.

materials/textures intact?

Oh BTW Eric =),
I have a fair amount of time on Saturdays which is when I have started setting 
time aside specifically for the project. If you have a lot of stuff your doing 
this week and don't think you'll get to it by Saturday, I can help with the 
props your trying to do ie.shovel, etc. I am going to be modeling stuff anyway 
to keep me modeling and to become more proficient with Maya 09.

hey katie,

Awesome!  Excited to have more modelers working, and glad you're in :)  I am 
guilty of this too so maybe we need a way to let everyone know what weplan on 
working on or have in process so we don't duplicate our efforts w/ models, 
etc.   can't wait to see your stuff...

Hey Guys,
I modeled a rail car on Saturday, and am working on texturing it up. If you 
want I can post it early so you can look at it. I am almost done with 
texturing, just have to finish up the wheels. Should be able to finish tonight 
or tomorrow.
I was also going to model some shovels etc. Just filler stuff to help.
Anyway, let me know what you guys think. I can do more models just let me know.

Here's the weekly update of our milestone progress.  Red items are blocked by 
other tasks, blue items are unblocked.

#1 - props for the cave (mining picks, rail cars, piles of rubble, that kind of 
#2 - lighting pass for the cave: (Waiting for cave to be decorated and finished)
#3 - animation for miners walking around
#4 - animation for miners mining the walls
#5 - animation for boss monster ambushing you
#6 - combat animation for miners in combat (just an idle animation)
#7 - combat animation for boss monster (just an idle animation)
#8 - cave battle arena art (just a 3d backdrop for combat, unless we are ok 
with what we have right now)  Probably blocked until we have the cave decorated 
with a lighting pass.

Scripting / Building:
#1 - finish decorating cave:  waiting on art to decorate the cave with (maybe 
this should be an art task)
#2 - balance the boss fight.
#3 - re balance the combat after all the enemies and boss are placed

#1 - make animated models cast shadows correctly
#2 - make it so models not on screen can still cast shadows on screen so we 
don't have shadow "popping"    
#3 - oct tree optomization for collision detection


Got a pickaxe from Katie
Got some nice rocks from Chris, and textured them with a texture from Matt
Eric made a lower polycount mine cart

Scripting / Building:
Enemy pathing (Kent)
Cave in after boss fight (Kent)
a stationary mining enemy that doesnt path (Kent)
the boss ambushes you (Kent)
we have a boss combat enemy (Kent)
monster placement has been finished (Kent the superstar)
the cave is finished being walled, you cant fall out of the map now
Nick balanced combat before we placed a whole bunch of new enemies

A few optomizations
A basic level editor
