Horizon is a small project that I have made to learn more about tremulous’ weird code and finally get the hang of it. (Hopefully it won’t get worst as I dive more and more deeper into it.)
Why Horizon and what does it do
Horizon was simply the name I thought of when reopening the files and I have decided to stick with it and this QVM (Soon to become a full Mod (See my explanation on the github page.) is based on an old source code called TeaMod. Why TeaMod in particular? Well, I wanted to start with having bots and what better way to start than with an already ready mod that works great already.
What I want to achieve with this mod is quite simple we could say and almost useless, but still great for learning. I want to add a few custom made models, sounds and so on and possibly bring back older mods like FunServer, Korx, HvH and so on as well as bring in a few special and new ideas in that could work. If these ideas does not work, well, removing them is easy and simple.
Where to find the source
The source can easily be obtained by going on the github repository at this link:
(The latest stable build is always on the master branch. Otherwise for the nightly build you will have to switch to the testing branch.)
Want to help but do not know how
Helping is quite simple, you can always help finding bugs, unbalances or anything that makes the experience less enjoyable. They will be fixed as soon as possible and as best as I and any other who wishes to help more directly which I now come to that point. Those who would like to participate in the development are welcome to. Forking and Cloning on github makes this a lot simpler to do so.
When should we expect updates
That is a great question that I cannot give exact dates nor time for as I do not know either. I will be updating as much and soon as I can, but I cannot guaranty that it will be a fast development. It will be done as it goes.
For the list of updates and what has been done so far or is in progress, the github page is kept updated as it goes. So there will not be a better place to look at them than there.
Constructive criticism is always welcome.
