Thanks for the great feedback over the last few days, both in email and the forums. The general consensus is what I wanted to do and that is to keep producing a version of blueprint that is bug free and feature rich. For those that are impatient and want everything today, sorry. It’s just not going to happen. I’m not going to rush this out the door just to satisfy a few. If you feel you want to sling rocks and arrows at me, go ahead. I would prefer to provide something spectacular to you than something that just creeps by. Don’t worry though. You won’t have to wait long. I’m sure blueprint will be under everyone’s Christmas tree soon. That’s it. Back to work and some major clean-ups to the system with the exporter.
There are a few things I’ve neglected over the last few weeks while I’ve been huddled inside the bluespace. Namely the file formats are outstanding and I’ve been a little lax in updating the developer diaries. I have the CMX/SKN format ready, just have to send it off to Maxis for a final nod and put it up on the site. I’ll see if I can sit down and do a long winded diary later this week with lots of gooey blueprint internals for those that follow such stuff.
