Biting the apple

I recently acquired a MacBook Pro to port RoR to the MacOSX platform. This is also a fantastic laptop to use. Donation helped me a bit. Okay, it did not paid it all, but it helped me to go to the high end rather than a buying a poor Mini that would not be very useful to me in normal use.
The port is almost finished, and the MacBook performs like a chief (it is even faster than my main computer!). I love it. Also people of Ogre3D do a fantastic job of keeping Ogre multi platform.
You can expect the next version to be released on 3 platforms (Windows, Linux, MacOS). I will try to get it packed up before the end of the year, but I can't promise!
So thank again to all the donators for their participation. You can still continue to donate, as this will help me pay the game server invoices.

Stop the press!

Rigs of Rods got mentioned in PC Gamer UK, Christmas 2007 edition (in kiosks since the end of November). And thats a whole page! Plus a copy of the game in the enclosed DVD.
That came as a surprise to me (thanks to PolyVox from the Ogre forums for the heads-up and scan).
I'm happy the spotlight was on the mods, as the modding community is growing out of control, and pulls more and more fantastic mods. I did not even knew the existence of some of the mods presented here (I'm too busy evolving the innards of RoR to track mods and forums).
So thanks to all modders and keep on modding!
