6/1/08

The timetable has been published and the deadline set.

4th November

The main outside is nearly finished, the walls need sorting, and the water needs extending, but work is coming along nicely. Baso brought over some UUIDs for textures used on the main grid. The interior is started, with the large dining room and grand staircase being planned.

Mars began work on making some plates fly off cupboards, but unfortunately to use a scultped prim plate, and to make them physical, they have to have a large gap between them.

The exterior gets a paint job, with the "Titanic" being put on the front of the ship.

October

The draft script is made, and Pigment gives tips on how to make the storyline better. Work continues on the sets.

September

The decision is made to begin planning the second machinima, Titanic. The main hull of the ship is made, and the script is started.
