Hey guys, figured I'd give a status update since were quite a bit behind on things...The past 2 weeks I've not got much feature-work done due to busy personal life. Work flew me out of town for 2 days + other planned things eating up time. I've also been working on Ingress a bit as a means for excercise and personal fitness....But also alot of the hold up for feature dev has been bug fixing. Since the start of the issue tracker we've fixed probally at least 40+ bugs.... As you've seen a lot of new stuff with Residence lately!Residences core permission code has pretty much gone over a rewrite with this...But on features:Wastelands - About 30% done - Theres alot of logic questions were working to figure out here and planning for the future. Wastelands will be reset often so we have to make sure we get the process established correctly... Unlike the current PRA areas which still dont work as desired.Normal Mode - 80% Done - Switching to normal mode is easy, its the extra goodies were wanting to give people that still have to be finished. Good news is the major parts of this are actually done. Few more minor tweaks here and there, but we want to get wastelands out first before returning to this.Original Dragon Egg Owners - 99% done - We actually have this deployed to give the original dragon egg owners their egg back and the other 19 normal, but a bug was thought of that needs to be handled first. Will knock this out and reveal this soon as we can!That is the main things "In Dev" that are due to release soon as finished in the near future.After that is back on the path for D Tombs... and first up is the secret update I've mentioned many times.Groups - I've mentioned multiple times there was an update that was required to be done before D Tombs, that depended on 1.5. Well I hinted at some recent suggestions that it was on the to do list...The general idea is to use the 1.5 features added to create a "Group" feature, that lets people form groups and have a group chat. There will be other perks for grouping together... More details as we get near.This system will be how players will work together for the Dragon Tomb (ie: how the system knows whos in a group together to go to the same event...), but i'm expecting people to use this as a generic chat channel too!Dragon Tombs - This is scheduled to go back into development soon as the Group feature is done!It's really hard to give times, because its really hard when EMC is not my primary day job. Between my day job programming (which digs into desire to program in evening), my new drive to get myself into shape, other personal entertainent (TV/Movies/Going out with max), Family etc, its hard to say "This feature will be done by X" because something can always come up.Justin is also still pretty swamped with his job, but as seen recently is loosened a little and stepping back in some, but I still will be the primary dev for EMC (and I have more time than he does!)Just please be patient with us, we will try to get things done as quick as we can.
