    I took the idea I brought up yesterday, and created a proof for it. Its documented, shows multiple AI actions with the AI manager, and multiple objects working with it. Here is a video link:

    I'm hoping to help out on the AI. Aside from getting my first look at the code tonight, I'll be looking for a few other things, like 1) How would we describe the core fun of the game? 2) What is a similar game that is fun? 3) will there be a wingman/fleet, or is it just you vs enemies? 4) What are the weapons and manuevering options? 5) Will there be Air Obstacles, or uneven ground heights? 6) Are there altitude variances in the physics or engine control?

    That'd be great, Paul! Yes, we do need the help in this area. Feel free to drop by WHEDA at six PM tomorrow. Don't forget to use the back entrance, and call me to get inside if I'm not waiting at the door. - Joe

    Hey, I'm an automation engineer, I was looking at this thinking I could do some game programming, but I see you need someone to do 3D modeling and animation, its been a hobby of mine for quite a while, though I've only just become familiar with moving models into unity. If 3D models are something you still need I can come by tomorrow and see what you're all doing. Since I'm pretty busy I could probably only contribute a model per week or so depending on complexity, so probably not enough to fill the requirements of the entire game.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
