Hello, all.

We are done.

There is a spot of proofing while I wait to pay the final artist off, but we are done.

Thanks for stopping by.

Nice! Just in time for the apocalypse ;)

@David: I thought that was in late December? Anyway, how could they know? Thanks.

Congrats! I know that it's well worth the wait. :-)

Congrats! I know that it's been well worth the wait.

Done?!? I keep thinking you got finished a while ago! =P Even though I'm not on top of things (in a lot of areas XP), I do know you put a LOT of time, effort and money into this. From what I have seen - from all the updates and previews - it looks great! So Congratulations! You earned it! _\\\

From what I have seen of the artwork this looks to be a much better technical readout that any prior publishers have put out. Kudos to everyone who had a hand in the project.

This by far one of the best TROs I have seen. I have been a Battletech fan since 1984, and the fluff text and graphics are better quality than any of the Fasa, Catalyst or Topps books. If anymore fan made TROs are in the making I'd be willing to help out. Let me know, either literary or monetary help. Excellent job and congratulations for all your hard work.

Steven Satak said...

@ravenwolf: Heck, hit the PayPal button for $35 so we can call this a wrap and pay Stephen Huda for the last piece of art. Otherwise I gotta wait until my own finances open up again.

Steve, Not really a Battletech fan but the armored vehicle art looks great. I threw in 15.00 to help move this along. Of course I'm just going to convert my favorite vehicles into something usable for 2300AD but it's still worth it. Come on guys, put your money where your mouth is and help Steve get this done!

Heh. I have a copy of Traveller 2300 sitting in the bookcase. Marc Miller sent it to me just before they began selling it back in the day (probably around 1986). I'd been corresponding with him on 'Missiles in Traveller', ironing out some of the glitches in the rules.

I think he still has the mahogany starship I commissioned in the P.I.

Bravo! I am very excited to see this one in final release! Congratulations guys!

Why, oh why, did I never see your blog before this week! The work you, and everyone involved, have put into this amazing project is simply astounding.
I'm going to donate as soon as I get my paycheck so I can get my grubby little hands on a copy.

Doug said...

When do you think should get this out? Anyway to get a print copy?

Doug said...

When do you think you should be out? How much money do you still need?

Jim said...

Steve, congrats! I'm glad to see you're able to bring this to fruition, and like I've said I'm impressed with the art, the designs, the text...the whole thing really is quality. So thank you again for pushing through to the end. That said, you need anything monetarily to pay off artwork? I think I'm late to the party this time but I'd be happy to help if that's a factor.

Steven Satak said...

@Doug: you've donated enough already, buster! Only way to get a print copy is to take the PDF down to the printer's. I am unable to offer print copies because I do not own the rights to do so.

@Jim: Go ahead and hit the PayPal button for $40. That will finish Mr. Huda off. However, we are now working on the final product. The whole thing takes up about 630mb with the software I have now.

I am working with Bad Syntax to reduce that to about 70mb. Maybe a lot less. With hypertext shortcuts included. Well, I will post a new page tomorrow.

Jim said...

No problem Steve. And if anything else comes up let me know. Otherwise I'm excited to see the end result. =)
