August 2018 Progress Report
Hello Everybody!

As you can probably tell, I am not Stephano. Stephano has been very busy this month and because of that there has been very little development done on the game. He is currently struggling with moving to a new school, new apartment and having terrible internet. We wish him the best!

It has been a very busy month on the discord though. With a new reddit post courtesy of /u/itai1717 we have almost doubled the amount of members we had which is fantastic! Darwin, is still MIA but hopefully we will hear from him soon. Due to the large influx of people, we are creating some new roles for people, to allow for even more people helping with development such as coding, modelling, sound and more! People have been asking about a way of donating to the game. Currently there isn't one, there has been talks about Patreon but nothing solid yet. But you can contribute with your time and ideas as always.

Before we go into development progress lets go over some more formal boring stuff first. 

Community Moderators
Some of you may have noticed, but our discord server has grown to quite a large size. This means we may be subject to spam, harasment or worst of all spoilers. Therefor we have chosen to acquire some community 'moderators'. These people have been with us for a while and will make sure that our community is as great as it can possibly mean. This also means that their word is LAW! If they tell you to do or stop doing something, then do it. Doesn't matter if its not a written rule or that Stephano is not around. If you have any questions or concerns about our community moderators send him a PM here on the forums or on discord Smile

Current Moderators:

Without further ado, lets jump into some progress!

Character Creation
Trough the month, Stephano has done a little bit of work on the Character Creation Screen. This is nowhere near perfect but it is definitely a good start. Hopefully when the game releases we will have a quite a few players moving around the world, therefor its important that not everyone looks exactly the same. A character creator is a really hard feature to implement, especially in large online games and Project Arkadia is no different. When a player creates a new character, they will first choose a clan. In the first screenshot below you can see a work in progress of the Skaikru character creation screen. Different clans will have slightly different clothing and styling options, so you can pick-out which clan a player is from from their apparel. This doesn't change that you will still be able to change between clothing freely using the inventory system later on. All art and assets are either currently being worked on is a placeholder. Nothing is final as of yet. But let us know what you think :-)

Totally didnt copy and paste this, I have no clue what I am doing.

As always thanks to everyone following our progress and helping out here on the forums, on Discord, on Reddit (Wait we got a reddit?) and Twitter (New twitter, as Darwin has the old one). We wouldn’t be making this project if it wasn’t for you guys (Or maybe we would, but it would be a lot less fun).
