would someone care to take over decision making on models.   what should be the main format for the mesh and texture.  i like no cost as the game will be no cost to me.  Thinking about .MOD but cannot find much on it.

gmax is free and there are mod plugin for it. Most 3ds max tutorials can also apply to gmax. Milkshape costs money.

Captain  Adam is correct.  I do apologize if I alienated anyone.  I have always endeavored to answer questions I can, I ask when unsure and for community involvement.  This is not meant to be a one man show.  I am pushing or alpha  this March.

The model format is not my area of expertise.  I has been raised before ans valid reason gived to not use 3ds format.  I do not have much on mod format, but I will try.

When I came onboard the goal was CE, this did not start till after, and is volunteer, part time.  I apologize for delays.

I reed the forums.  I will not use anothers work without permission. 

I also signed an NDA for EAW and CE source code and have one now to protect against ADB, whom have contacted me.

I will try to answer specific questions but I am human and do not read minds.

Is SFC4 a highly modified SFC:CE?
No, although I did peek at the source.  This way it is easy to change.

Will the people who have signed the NDA's be sent this alpha in a state that can load. So we can start work on things like UI's, Sprites, Models and general looks?

Will those of us who are willing to work on this be given some sort of organization so we all know what we are doing instead of stepping on each others toes?
Not up to me, but dome way to interact with changes

Quote
Maybe some sort of a chain of command?
a good idead

Quote
Is there going to be an overall art director? You know the person who makes sure the aesthetics are all of the correct tone and everything blends well?
If somebody volunteer.


Quote
Do those of us who have signed the NDA's have a private sub-board where we can plan what needs to be done, discuss and share our progress answer each others questions without risking breaching our NDA's?
Yes theris, and I requested axccess for you.

Quote
Is SFC4 ever going to be sold as an actual product or will it be a freeware game?
Managed by Dyna, I do this as community zand charge nothing.
