After a long period of struggle: http://www.indiedb.com/games/pirates/news/unfortunate-reality-of-developing-an-indie-game
The project is back and better than ever: http://www.indiedb.com/games/pirates/news/project-history-and-the-bright-future-ahead
A fully-networked and functioning game now exists.
Cutlass Day 1 – Basic swing + damage
Cutlass Day 2 – Multiple swings, blocking, and sword collision
Musket Day 1 – Simple firing, not fully animated, at first damage wasn’t replicated, then later fixed.
Musket Day 2 – Firing is more complex, with pan ignition first.
Powder-Keg Day 1 – Very early demonstration of our first explosive.
Pirate player models will be replacing the Mannequin soon, after the skin and retargeting issues are resolved.
