Hi all! Well, I see now why id software is famous for saying their projects will be released "when they're done." I'm sorry this project has taken so much longer than I originally planned. Then again, I'm not sorry for taking the time to do it right. I'm trying to do something special here. Still, I know you're anxious, so here's a little update.
Nearly all the modeling is done. Most of the texturing is done. The last "big" thing to finish is the exhibits. I'm talking with paleontologists and other natural history associates to make sure I get these right. I want this map to not just look like a museum but actually contain original and interesting exhibits.
This is the last step, but it's not really what's holding things up. Life--and work--have kept me away from mapping, but I'm back at work and I never really stopped completely. I'm not going to set a date, but I am hoping Museum:Source will be released to beta very soon.
