Sorry Alan, I have been sick with strep throat for a few days now. But I am 
ready to try and see about importing/exporting models out of Maya into 
Milkeshape. That should be a quick tooling around.I am planning on working on 
that tonight. I was going to find out what stuff you guys need and see how I 
can help.
Can you let me know what you guys need for models, etc. and I can figure out 
what I can work on? I am going to assume that I can get something worked out 
for getting models into Milkshape.
Thanks Alan,

Wow kent that was a lot of work so definitely big props to you there.

I think alan is right as far as putting the conclusions (like the "official" 
systems) up but I will probably have to plow through and edit to pick our stuff 
and even then, cutting room floor stuff could be retained in its own section so 
we can reference it. Kent definitely established a basis for us to work on and 
I am sure it was a lot of work so again, awesome :)

On a side note, alan have you heard from katie? Me and chris were gonna start 
divying up art tasks and setting a deadline (I work 100% better under pressure 
:P) so we can get our part of the cave cranked out.

haha, I don't need as ANOTHER place to put ideas, but rather, a physical 
representation of the logical build on how to organize. Sometimes it's better 
to see... kinda like building a flow chart (:

I wonder if I can still program a small database or build a logical construct 
of data organization with the software on my computer to help organize stuff.

Plus, I'm not really sure how to organize it

I totally agree with you but the information was tossed around so randomly i 
just collected it first. The second pass will be to minimize and make sense of 
the crap that's up there. My end goal is to have it for quick reference on our

I havent checked it out yet, but i'd say we want to keep information on the 
wiki minimal.
Too much crap up there and it will be too hard to figure out what is what.
Like instead of putting up whole convos just put up the conclusion.
Handling Death
1) When an npc dies, they can be recovered from any spirit node and are still 
2) When all npc's and the player are dead, it loads the last save game
3) When you visit spirit nodes it does an auto-save so if you die you'll be 
taken back to the last spirit node you visited at very least.
Have that instead of the millions of lines of conversation it took to get us 
there :P
less is more deffinately here, we want info to be short, concise, and easy to 
find and understand (:

Ok, I went through all of my emails and compiled everything and posted it on 
the wiki. It's very disorganized and mostly copy n paste quotes. I hope Eric 
will go through most of what he said and clean it up. I'm hoping that everyone 
will update the wiki with stuff they think is important as we go so there won't 
need to be a massive update again. Anyone is welcome to move around any info as 
they see fit. My organizational system is inconsistant and hard to follow. Plus 
this is the first wiki I've ever tried to make. Feedback and criticizm is
