Hey guys,

Welcome to our first development blog entry. We decided to give you every week an overview about what happend in the last week. Since, we didn't give you any information about our last updates this development blog will give a lot to read! Starting from next Monday, we will publish a new blog entry on a weekly basis!

We implement our first VOIP system - you demanded it, we delivered it! The initial version of VOIP can work in a 2D/global or in a 3D/local mode. Press K to push-to-talk!

We are looking for new guys!

Progress on our Beta Map

After we finished the new map we had some difficulties to implement the map into UE4. Our main focus lies on performance: So we needed to implement the map with some other details than we planned. We are currently fixing some issues and started to paint the map. Also, we started to add our foliage.
