This year if we're lucky?
It's a guess but I'm probaby pretty close.

Has there been any thought of building a new Wiki for Aurora C.  Steve's been putting out a lot of good information, and I think it would be a good idea to start capturing this information and organizing it into a Wiki.

Most of it could be automated.  All the mechanics changes are in the C# Changes List thread.

Still no idea on release date. Hardly did anything in April but back on track recently. I am going to work on missile and turret design next, then probably the new game window. Still not even looked at detection or combat or the galactic map and a lot of the movement orders are not done. However, I am away a lot in June so not much progress then either. My plan is to try to start a test game before the end of the summer, even if a good chunk of the game isn't there yet. Playing will motivate me to fill in the missing pieces :)

In terms of a finished game, my latest guess is late this year or early next.

And just when I was getting used to the games mechanics. . .  I suddenly find that all my hard work and dedication were for naught. . . .

YES I GET TO RELEARN THE GAME AGAIN!

At least Aurora C# won't be competing for my attention with the MWO Civil War.
