Project Status Updates

Postby MoDaD » Wed Sep 27, 2017 10:55 am

In the past I've generally held the position that I wouldn't make posts or announcements about something I'm working on until it's done, as (particularly in the fandom's earlier days) many people would make large announcements and bold declarations about various things they'd undertake...and then it'd never happen.

But, as there are several things that are going on, I can also see the value in letting people know what I'm working on so as to reassure (particularly during moments of silence) what's going on in my very small sphere of influence.

I think that it's also worth making the disclaimer, that anything posted in this thread should be considered NOT GUARANTEED, so anyone who posts a project status can do so without fear of repercussion. At the same time, all posts to project status should be done in good faith, especially if it's something new.

I invite everyone to post to this thread, whether you're an artist, writer, designer, etc. who has a SWAT Kats related task(s) they're in the middle of. BacteriaDivide

Strike's SWAT Kat Zone Transfer - 1% - This thing's a mess, but it's a doable mess. Just need to make time for it. Probably before the end of 2017.

SWATKats.info Redesign - 5% - This has been on the back-burner for over a year. Have something more streamlined and faster in mind.

The MEGA SWAT Kast: Metallikats EP - 100% - UPDATED. With special guest Mark Lungo. This thing is coming along fine. Should have that done within a week.

MEGA SWAT Kats Auxiliary Weapons Panel - 100% - UPDATED. With a special guest Christian Tremblay. Up now: https://www.mixcloud.com/swatkats/auxil ... -tremblay/

The MEGA SWAT Kast: Bride of the Pastmaster - 100% - This has been recorded and awaits editing. Special guest Kooshmeister joined for this one.

MegakatCity.com Upgrade - 5% - Did this on my test location, and everything worked fine, with ONE exception. The theme I modded is no longer compatible with the latest version of PHPBB, which means I'll have to cannibalize one that is. Could I make one from scratch, you ask? Yes. Will I? No. Hoping to have that resolved by January 2018.

Writing Challenge Story - 0% - I'd like to take a stab at this as I haven't written a story in awhile, but time constraints probably won't allow for it. CANCELLED - After reconsidering this, I realized I have no time to do this, and probably won't do any writing until 2018 at the earliest.

Redoing the SWAT Kats Fan Art Archive - 1% - I really want to update this into the same back-end format I did for the SKFFA as it'd make it easier for Kris to use and for visitors to view. Postponed into 2018. Want to finish swatkats.info first.

I have too many art projects on hold that I want to end before starting anything new. I don't have a specific order aside smilies first (since some are requests from 2 months ago). My plan is to end with all before next year but... probably won't be able SighingChanceIcon

- Smilies.
Requested: 10/17 done.
Others by me: 04/11 done.

- Megakat City Stories. A comic that I started about 6 months ago and never finished a page yet. I have 3 pages planned for now. All pages planed to be in digital.
01 We got one: fully sketched and started digitizing some lines.
02 Critical hit!: fully sketched, but that's all.
03 Deja vú: half sketched.

- Digital versions. These are some drawings already sketched that I want to redo in digital.
Join the Revolution Hype Train: My first planned big project, on hold too cos of old hard drive not working properly. About 70% done.
Megakat Wrestling Simulator - Callie VS Dark Kat: not started yet.
Night at the port: about 40% done.
Dataspace Jake: this started as a little practise with depths. About 15% done.

- Art Challenge 4 - Remember Those Times When...: A cat step into my life and now I'm stuck with another project on hold... TboneLaughCait Still have some characters to sketch as well as background details. Obviously, It will be done in digital.

Update: I felt like my original Metallikats AMV wasn't working out the way I wanted it to. So I'm nixing the original idea in favor of a new Metallikats vid and that means my project is now down to 1%.

But I think I've made a project that's much more manageable than the original. And the editor I'm using is a newer, more stable and less buggy version. So this time it might not get stuck at 10% like the previous one!

And the new iteration will hopefully be just as epic as the original! MKIcon

Edit: and you guys all really rock with the hard work you're putting in. A special shout out to MoDad for hosting the encyclopedia and these forums! I just wish I had money or talent to give. FeralIcon
