8/6/2003 - Bombq3 is still alive with new team members!
 
What we can say, things are going slowly in this period anyway we have a small update, we dont have a new version ready yet but everything is moving nicely in the team. Would like to introduce you another two team members: Peter B÷hme as an artist in the team, he can help us with 2d art (mainly men¨,HUD), some mapping and models and Symo (another Italian) as 2d/3d artist, he started the complete restyle of each texture in the mod he will do some concept arts about maps and also some 3d models. Peter made a very cool map called databq3, is really different,simple but got a really interesting 2d style with floating particles and blending platforms... is more than an experimental thing and work very good, we think we will include it to the next release .. be patience and take a look to this screens, two screens are taken from a new "test" version of the mod ... with bugs :).



The new version include a lot of new features,i dont want to list any now but the mod will change a lot and will be very near a complete total conversion! Stay tuned :D
