Hi Sari,

Actually I didn't expect you to fix the issues with Marc models, because
he already had to invest a lot of time in learning the tools, so don't
worry about that (actually I don't think they are mistakes as you said,
the models are quite good, but issues always arise when passing models
from one tool to another). I will wait for him to have some time...

So, I don't want to put pressure on you... it is just that there are
some things that I expected that someone was doing and I suddenly
realise that there is no way to get them done :S I understand that you
are very busy with moving, etc, but you could take tasks that you like,
such as 2D drawing for the menus and the HUD and do them in your free
time if you please.

Also, I would thank you if you gave me Ville and Katri's emails so I can
contact them and see if they can get the level done.

Kiitos samoin,
