I'm back in school now. I've become a non-traditional student at the local tech college and I'm pursuing a diploma in HVAC. I guess this is what happens when your life turns sour and you decide that enough is enough. You make drastic changes.
Now, one might think that going back to school would leave less time for animating. That might be true in later semesters, but right now this has turned into a major boon for VGE4. I have a solid two-hour block between the end of my latest class and the time I have to roll into work. That is time that I have dedicated to animating and it has been amazingly helpful. I've been getting way more done in the college library than at my own desk at home.
I just go in, find an isolated spot in a corner somewhere, and animate on my laptop. It's quiet and there aren't any distractions. Just me and Flash. Getting stuff done.
Anyway, just thought I'd give you guys a small update. I had kind of stalled over the last month with my animations, but this new block of dedicated time is reinvigorating me. I might need to start going there on my off days just for the productivity boost. It's way easier to get stuff done when you're not at your home computer being distracted by games, food, YouTube, alcohol, a bed five feet away, and porn.
So... yeah. VGE4 is coming. No release date in mind, but it's being worked on.
