Oh hey, good that you're keeping up with this. I missed like 3 updates.

I should probably check the forums more regularly. I've been a bit spotty about that as of late, though that may be due to broken notifications.

Yep, still chipping away at it. V44 is nearly ready for consumption (have a bit more UI cleanup, some balancing of numbers, and then bughunting run). Then V45, will be a more technical focused release, as I implement an Event Handler and Dispatcher into the game. That might take a while; codebase is coming close to 30,000 lines of code.

To be fair, not a whole lot has happened on the forums in the past few weeks. I think the gog release of Outpost 2 has put a damper on a lot of projects, as those projects relied on the old exposed code, and now have to be somehow updated to the new form.

The mission development API is what it is, so there's no "new form" that anything needs to be updated to.  If anyone wanted to change it, they'd need to have access to the OP2 source code, and then also access to the source code for all the base missions, since those would also need to be updated to work with any hypothetical new API.
Also: Speak for yourself.  I've been quite busy.

The GOG release had implications for the main game package, though that got sporadic attention at best. The other projects have generally been quite careful about avoiding potential copyright issues. The nature of the GOG release also avoids potential binary compatibility issues. I get the sense they no longer have the source code, so they're limited in what they can change. It would be a huge amount of effort on their part of break binary compatibility in such as way that new missions or addons would be affected.

I suspect any lull in activity is just the periodic ebb and flow of how things go here.

The OPHD project has had quite a bit of activity over the past year or so. Mind you, a lot of that discussion happens over on Discord, rather than on the forums.

Btw, you should drop by on Discord sometime. (Do we have an official Discord thread or link anywhere?)

@Sirbomber; I'm always busy.

@Hooman; I didn't know OPU had a discord.
