28.November.2009: A Good Month Gone

Posted by DarkRider on November 29, 2009 at 2:44 AM

Hail and Fair Greetings Blades Fans,

Just finished updating the RST threads on BGS and also on TESA so thought I would take a moment to update the log!

Some of you may have noticed a new look here on the Dimension. I started seeing a lot of ES Mod sites utilizing the same theme on webs.com and not one to go with the flow I decided to try something new. The custom header is a screen from the dojo of Sancre Tor in RST; one of my favorite screens. Looking through the screens from RST really takes me back, the screenshots captured moments in the last two years of development and as I browse through them I can recall special moments of triumph or epic failures! LOL I've decided to add a new featurette here in the Projects section called "RST:About the Screenshot" which shares some of these screenshots along with an anecdote of what that image captured for me. I thought it might be a neat way to share and recap the journey with all of you.:D

So what's new with Reclaiming Sancre Tor you ask?

I'm so glad you asked! Things with RST's quest build are finally moving forward with haste. The first 90% of chapter three proved very challenging to make manifest from dev plan into the CS. I learned a lot on the way and my skill set increased as well which probably adds to the road getting easier. This screenshot above here is from chapter three where you will be questing with a companion, Any time you add horses to the mix things get trickier to stabilize. There will always be moments where a mounted NPC wanders a bit off task, I'm just doing my best to reduce the number of misadventures they take in RST.

This week I think I should be able to finish chapter three, I'm at a really good place, only another 10% to go, then a short dungeon dive, and chapter four begins! Such a good place in the story too. The thing I like most about RST is that its a story that keeps giving and keeps you moving forward on a journey that is about discovering your destiny as a Blade; truly epic fun.

Armor master Nicoroshi has been working on RST's missing armor concepts and is nearly finished! WhoGuru is about to begin Alpha testing round 2 now that the quest is more stable. I will be moving forward striving for the finish line always. Wind is still working hard to finish his model work and of course, my mates around the Alliance are always willing to help tweak a script or edit a .nif, anything to help me finish. RST has been my journey, but all of you have been there with me the whole way and I am proud to be sharing this with so many of you.

I will update again when I reach the next goal line in the questbuild!

Happy Modding!

It is very interesting to follow your progress on this epic project. I also thoroughly enjoyed RST: About the screenshot. I think it's fantastic that you're sharing these types of "tidbits," or behind the scenes information so to speak.

Thank you for the very informative update!
