It’s been a long time since I started this project, and it’s getting to a point where I can only do so much by myself anymore since I’m constantly splitting my attention between this and other unrelated projects. That’s where you all come in.
You see, I’ve been planning this for a long time, and I feel that ZOPU is finally at a close enough stage in its development to move to Phase Two. In Phase Two, I’ll be taking my hands off the reins a little, and start the process of handing the project off to you future developers. The thing is, I don’t want to just abandon the project, I want it to succeed. I want it to evolve and change into a fully playable and enjoyable experience. Unfortunately, I just don’t have that kind of time to do it alone anymore.
So with that in mind, I’m going to be slowly opening up development to those who wish to help out, and offering SVN access to the project files to anyone who can show me they’re serious about helping with development. Just hop over to my Discord channel, and toss me a private message with what you want to work on, and we’ll work out the details. Think of this as a sort of recruiting drive. ZOPU could use people of all walks of life. 3D Modelers, Animators, Programmers (Preferably Blueprints Programmers, but any programming experience will work), sound editors, VFX artists, UI designers, exc. Even if you’re not experienced, that’s fine, I’ll help train you up provided that you MUST be willing to learn.
By the way, for anyone who just wants to keep up with the latest built Alpha Version of ZOPU, I’ve updated the Download page, so it now includes download instructions for using the SVN server, which will allow much easier updates to get the latest version without having to muck around with looking at version numbers, at least for now. (By the way, if you download it now, you’ll get access to Version 0.0.8.3, which includes an updated Goku model, Super Saiyan 4, Dragonballs, exc.! Note: The customization options are not all updated for this new model just yet…)
