Ok, first the good news...
The STEVO Homepage has been updated. Troy is working on a "cleaner" interface, I've added a new section which I plan to update a little more daily than my current page called "Status Update". For some reason, Apple's Homepage will not register a new "index.html" for a couple of days, so to see all the latest info go here:
And now the bad news...
The plugin has progressed pretty rapidly in the past month. Although, it WAS slowed my working K-Days, my regular job giving me more hours and I got a new girl friend so I've been a little preoccupied... Anyways, thanks to EVO Developers Map, the stellars and thus most of the bugs have been fixed tremendously faster than with EVEdit/ResEdit. So, the plugin is not exactly at the state I thought it would be, it still impressivly improved a lot.
I'm NOT going to release any more "beta" releases till I can get a final beta going, and even then it WILL be a closed beta. I'm thinking the plugin will be finished (final beta) within the next month (september, see disclaimer), although I will be working full tilt for a little while to try and get it out sooner. Nevertheless, you WILL NOT be disappointed, it will be as much bug free as possible with the next release with probably some bug fixes to follow afterwards (though, hopefully not, if we are as perfect as we claim to be ).
I'm not currently accepting beta testers, but will announce it here when the plugin approaches its "final beta" period.
DISCLAIMER: RELEASE DATE NOT FINALIZED BUT "PROJECTED" BASED ON RATE OF WORK DONE ON A TYPICAL DAY. TYPICAL DAYS ARE USUALLY ACCOUNTED FOR 3 DAYS OF THE WEEK. THAT IS NOT FACTORED IN TO THE CALCULATION. ODDS ARE LOOKING BEST AT A OCT-NOV RELEASE...
I never thought I'd go
as far as I am right
now. Now that I'm
here, I have to start
over or else I've got
nothing to do.

Looking good. Nice graphics, and I trust the storyline will be great.

Looks great, but I notice you don't make any mention of missions., What I mean is , will there be any missions or will it be left to other people and what do you think of the other ST plug being made by Kwanza, or is it the same one?
I don't have any plans to release missions with the final release, although this is subject to change, its odds are not good to be released with the final plugin.
Kwanza is on his own project with his own people and I'm on with my own people.
What this means is you'll get ->"TWO"<- great Star Trek plugins as opposed to one!
That is something to be excited about!
I haven't seen his plugin or gotten a projected release date or anything like that, but I can only assume it will be as good as he claims it to be.

If you ask...we may be able to exchange beta plugs, just to see what's cookin. Your new Excelsior looks GREAT BTW...;)
