Week #3 Report
Happy New Year, all y’all!

So, it’s a brand new year, and we’re back from our holiday hiatus! We’re back on track (bad pun intended, hurr hurr) in creating new content in earnest, blasting full speed down the road (hurr hurr).

But, despite the next major build looming just right within our grasp, we’re not there yet. We’re tuning the physics engine like madmen, pounding away crazy amounts of time trying to hammer it into shape. As it stands while this is written, we’re still a bit off from that mark: yesterday cars could fling themselves into low Earth orbit after hitting a pebble, or do a full 720 backflip from the smallest bounce. Today, we’re down to doing only mad amount of big air and several consecutive barrel rolls, so there’s definite progress!

And, as soon as the physics of the driving experience itself are good enough, we’ll push the build out. This may take a few days, or a couple of weeks if we can’t immediately find what causes all these issues. We’re almost there. Almost. We can taste it.

But, nothing bad if not something good as well! Bugbear is happy to have one of our lost flock back, as Johannes joins us once more! Johannes is the fellow responsible for developing the ROMU engine deform mechanisms, and nobody knows the intricacies and gimmicks of deformation better than him. So, you can expect some stellar changes in the damage and deform mechanisms of Wreckfest! Us, we’re just happy that the man is back at Bugbear. Welcome home, Mr. J.

We have a lot more great news and good stuff brewing behind the scenes, but we’ll get to those later on, once we get the build ready to launch. For now, be safe, and do take care.

Oh, and a few new screenies, just because we can.

It takes as long as it takes...the important thing is getting it right.

Sounds cool! Agreeing with medicinehead here - so many bad things can be said about rushing stuff, too. The screenshots look awesome. Looking forward to further, but nice to hear you guys are progressing and that Johannes is buckling up.

Good to hear this commitment of doing it properly :)
Keep it up!

Big welcome back to Johannes! Don't stress it just let it flow as it comes BBear.

I look forward to what all this patch will contain.

agree with most the post here, making it right is better than making it fast, keep up the great work guys
