The world is round... so you have to use spherical projection.

Most of the stability issues which were causing the delays have been solved. Some images of transparent water are being rendered right now, and I'll post some completed renders next week.

I expect that this last development phase will enter alpha testing very soon, probably near the end of next week. As you may know, we have a number of alpha testers working with our latest development builds and battling with the inevitable bugs that come with new features. This is a closed process, but we will keep you informed of the kind of feedback we get from the alpha testers as soon as it becomes available so you have some idea when we may be able to release the Beta. We're not going to jump the gun and make another ETA until we're absolutely sure it is ready for wider beta testing.

This latest development phase has been particularly rough, but I'm sorry we didn't plan better for this eventuality. We understand that it has inconvenienced many of you and sincerely appreciate your patience.

I hope you enjoy some of the images we have to show you next week :)

I've come to the conclusion that Planetside's "concept of time" in non-existent.

It seems appropriate that I should post a little verse I wrote when suffering under the programmer's curse ...

Programmer's lament

I think that there shall never be
An ignoramous just like me
Who roams the help throughout the day
In a fruitless search that does not pay
For as often as I think I've found the gold
Its been declared obsolete and old
1000 bugs run and attack.
For knowledge I so clearly lack.
And when all is said and done .
The program won't compile or even run.
I search for help where err I go
For reasons I so fully know
For bugs were made for fools like me.
Who can't program and think efficiently.

Garry Freemyer - 1996
The world malfunctions in mysterious ways.

lol. Well as long as the programming and testing's still being done it doesn't really matter when the renders come.

Hint to Matt: Never give yourself a deadline, you can be sure people'll keep you to it.
Figured out how to do clicky signatures

I think he learned that already  ;D

Strangely enough, having a deadline can help (some) programmers bring better quality.  I can't believe (and I'm sure it isn't so in this case) that having no deadline at all makes any sense.  Anyway, when Planetside will let us see some transparency in action from the real deal, I'll be here.
So this is Disney World.  Can we live here?

Yes, I'd love to see some of these images.  Anxiously awaiting this.  ::)

The previous two posts can be paraphrased as "Hint Hint".
