Here we are, smack-dab in the middle of July. If you signed up for the mailing list in the hope of receiving the Heron’s Nest scenery right about now, you’re probably wondering where it is. When I made the announcement about it, it looked like the scenery was just about ready for final testing. Then I tried it on some other versions of the sim, and discovered that I had to rebuild all the coastlines for the many islands around this one in order to preserve the shape of this one. It’s a long story, but the sort of head-on-desk moment that scenery development is made of. I have the coastlines rebuilt and looking mostly fine now, but I’ve discovered that the far end of the HN runway is now falling off into the sea instead of perching high on the cliff above, which means more terrain sculpting to try and put it back where it was. Did I mention I hate terrain sculpting?
Anyway, that’s where we stand. Sometimes it’s the little details at the end of a project that toss it all into disarray. I’m still aiming to release this month, but the middle is looking increasingly undoable. Bear with me, please. We’re nearly there!
