Hiya - Came here after seeing a news item on RPS about NEOScavenger dev making a sci-fi crew management game. As this is the sort of game I've been planning and wanting to make/play for years, and as my method of making games goes mostly down the procrastinating route of 'looking for inspiration', I was excited to read your devblog about the design process and how it was all going.
Unfortunately I'm struggling to piece together the thread of development through the news items. I don't suppose it's possible to add tags to the news posts to enable easier finding of relevant articles?
Also, as I see you are now using unity and experimenting with normal maps here is a link to a chap who did some interesting work that might be of use:
