I think I can answer both of those with a single, rather long-winded answer:
The New Republic is virtually completed. In fact, it was at a point done and into our testing phase when we discovered a major problem. The major mission strings of two governments clashed horribly with each other. As written, the storylines were butting heads so hard that their integrity had beed reduced to rubble. I've discovered something in the process of fixing this massive mistake: It's harder to fix pre-written missions than it is just to write up new mission strings. However, because I did not create this plugin and because I want it to be as true as possible to it's original owner's conception, I've stuck with the fixing thing. The process usually involves the following cyclic series of events:
Find conflicting mission
Write down everything about mission
Try to fix
Slam head into desk and wall repeatedly
Get frustrated and smoke a cigarette or 3
Come back downstairs
Try to fix again
Get distracted and read web-comics
Play video games until computer crashes
Repeat process tomrrow
I swear, I'll get it done someday! Don't shoot me yet!
As for any work that you could do, Firebird:
The only thing I can think of that's left is the conversion of those duo-tone target images into the Standard EV color scheme. I can't remember how many are left but there are a few. If you want, I can E-Mail you a link to where you can download a current copy of the plugin.
