Howdy folks! Been a spell since the last news post, but things have been mighty slow around these parts the last few months. Don't worry, we haven't given up on version 1.1 but I can't say when it will be released. In the meantime, there are some news-worthy happenings popping up here & there.*

A gunslingser by the name of Steve has been pretty busy lately. He put together a Net Radiant package that you can download
if you'd rather try that out as opposed to GTK Radiant. No tutorial for it yet, but the readme has some info.
It's been awhile since an experienced mapper has drifted into town & Steve has also been posting some pretty sweet screenshots
of his work in progress that he calls Outpost. Check out our pic-o-the-week for a tasty scene! You can also download a "preview" version of Outpost here.
Have a look around & be sure to give Steve some feedback pilgrims.*
