I kind of figured the whole "This is not a 24 hour a day job, and it's not the only thing we do with our lives" routine was a good thing to post in a progress reports thread. A lot of people forget that, and have to be reminded from time to time.
Progress report: Progress is slow, because persons X, Y, and Z are busy, disabled, or missing, and we're very short of manpower.
Not only am I no help with scabbards, I don't even know who is. ONR is also on hold on that point, until more people figure out how it's done. Most of the other mods have skipped that point for the first-round .808 versions.
I can't get BRFEdit to work half the time. If everything isn't perfect, it crashes. When it works, it's great ... but that's not often.
Probably should put together the next release BEFORE worrying about the scabbards, and deal with them when nothing else is going on. It's likely to take a while to get them really working right.
