+ Thanks to kind words last week (and lack of visual progress), I'm posting more faction secretaries today.
- These gals are in the tier two factions, so they probably wouldn't see the light of day till way way later.
+ Fuckn' retarded bug that makes it crash on windows guarenteed but only on normal plebian computers. No bug report either.
- Doesn't affect the coder's Windows patrician monolithic space station of a computer. So he can't replicate the error.
- Reconfigure the game so that we can have the game spit out a crash dump.
- 50 MEGABYTE CRASH DUMP
- Somewhere in the code, a divide by zero is occuring.
+ Stupid divide by zero bug is fixed.
+ Two other game-breaking bugs are fixed.
+ Beginning to resolve multiplayer desyncing issues and increasing stability.
- Multiplayer stability needs to be increased. Right now, P2 is basically unplayable and is unsynced most of the time.
+ Down res of vehicles is being done in cunjunction with the 9 directional slant for the terrain being added in future
+ The 9 directional slant for vehicles needs an entirely new pipeline designed which is basically complete.
+ A 9 directional unit is only like 3 Mbs in terms of image size, but when loaded up in-game, takes up 140 Mbs in graphical RAM.
- This is not game-breaking at this stage but will need to be optimized in the near future.
- Moving closer to version 0.01 pre-alpha release, which has bare bones LAN multiplayer. July, if no major delays occur.
+ Here is the current music playlist for anyone that wants a listen:

+ Began working on a level theme. Very much a WIP: https://soundcloud.com/kistol/throwing-down-excerpt/s-C1cvwhvw2Va
+ Drafted almost all sprites & animations for basic "Mask" and not-basic "Shotgun Mask" enemy types
+ Implemented the last bread-and-butter enemy type with placeholder art.
+ Began cleaning up + working on new Bully sprites & animations (he's a bull with a mask. :3)
+ Cleaned up Shotgun sprites and animations a bit more.
+ Further adjusted AI system. Enemies can respond to the player in fun and dynamic ways without being too intelligent.
+ Began working on babby's first level, which will probably never see the light of day.
+ Tons of other small updates and fixes. Demo soon (TM)
