The prob with campaign is that (besides some remaining nasty bugs)
- we are lacking *content*, especially for the endgame

Okay, THIS I may be able to help with. What do you guys need? As arrogant as it sounds, I'm a way better than average story teller, so if it's descriptive content or story related stuff you want, tell me what needs to be done where and I'll see what I can do.

Now, building maps, levels and that sort of thing, that's where I will fall down with the lack of expertise with the tools at hand and a lack of time to commit to learning them, but story related stuff and proofreading things is right up my alley. I speak, read and write English at native fluency and am a card-carrying member of the Grammar Police Brigade, so if you need any of that, send me a PM or an email (if the board allows sending emails through it, my address is not publicly visible).

I was just playing through 2.3dev & it looks like the UGV stuff all still needs to be done

They wont put in UGV's for a long time. But if you can make some models for them.

Coding, animations, UI... it needs a lot of work.

UGV are not for 2.3 for sure.

However, do we have a list of the remaining todos for ugvs, BTAxis ?
If not, we should create one, maybe on the ML...
After dealing with all that (untested) 2x2 code in pathfinding, UGVs are one of the first 2.4 features for me. At least the ability to test them.

Hmm, good idea. I don't think there's a todo for UGVs right now, at least not one that is in any way up to date.

If 2x2 units basically mean UGVs, there is one on the wiki, though how up-to-date I'm not sure.

Last modified 25 April 2008. I think there's a good chance that what's on there is obsolete.

Thx Hertzilla for digging that up. I overlooked it.

Well, it may be outdated, but imho it's a good start. :)
So let's just update it...

@BTAxis:
I took a closer look at that todo list and have to say that it's outdated in a *positive* way :)
That is, many things that have the status open, WIP or 'no clue' are already prepared/done, especially pathfinding.

But I have 2 important questions that don't seem to be covered by the list at all:
IIRC I was already able to buy an Ares from the market, but
Q1: how do I get it on board of a dropship ?
Q2: how will I control it in battlescape ? Is it the 9th soldier (UI work) or does it replace the 9th soldier ?

I volunteer to update the pathfinding stuff in that list as soon as I am enabled to test it.
I don't care much for the model, animation or turret. A shoebox-thingy will do.

in the team selection menu should be a button for switching to ugv already.

That was the old UI, now we have a tab for them, but commented out in menuscript (and maybe not working (missing/outdated callbacks)).

Assigning and removing UGVs were broken in 2.2.x either, I can check&fix it after 2.3 if it's a need for 2.4 but I'm not sure if it should be. We have quite much plans for 2.4 already and we also want shorter release cycle. We should discuss 2.4 features before promising anything... ;)
