Well everyone, I think it's about time the extended April Fool's joke be revealed for what it is. Other than a few tweakings here and there, and screenshots of things which hadn't been shown before, there actually hasn't been any progress whatsoever made on JPDS in many, many months, despite Tatu's efforts to help, and with my new interests, I'm just too tired of modding to keep working on it. So, I'm going to release bits of what has been done in separate packages, just so something will come out of it. :? But it's not quite prepared yet, so for now, I'm afraid this special image will have to do.

Very sorry to everyone who looked forward to the completion of this massive 5-year project.

"I see it." [said Sarah]
...
"The box is in backward. Flip all the switches the other way. Are you dry?"
"No, Doc. I'm soaking wet, lying in the damn mud."

Wait... did I miss the joke? This is terrible news! or, is the joke the fact that the project is being dropped?

For anyone still wondering - I suggest not zipping by the image so fast.

You guys talking about the video ruined it for me.

Draco, I love you (in a non-homosexual way).

Not sure how I should interpret it though.

Wait so, did you see it or not? :yum:

There have been enough views on this thread, I think anyone who's going to comment on the original post has done so by now.


APRIL FOOLS EVERYONE!

JPDS is still very much alive and well - with much thanks to Tatu, who is doing most of the latest work on the Plains for me while I take care of other parts. There's still no way to set a release date but it's going to be sooner than later, as there's not much left to do before recombining the sublevels, and I believe after that production will start going pretty quickly, with most work being in TresEd.
There is a lot of stuff that has been cut from JPDS over time and I do plan to release all that in certain ways after JPDS itself is out for a while.

That image above is from NedryLand. I imported a new object into it for assistance in creating hold-magnets, and at just the moment I entered the DINOS cheat, this raptor was about to bite Nedry's head off :lol: and also at that moment, Pandora 1 was starting a new song, so it just made for a very unusual and interesting image XD

Using Sam's technique from his short-lived ARG, there is a text file hidden inside the image. If you haven't already, break it out the same way and have fun.

Nicely done, and it looks really great :yum: loved the way you hid the link too.


Looks like you've got some new editing software, and are running in widescreen. :) Nice.
