Particle effects are pretty, but damn do they obstruct your view.

Yeah, that pretty much sums up my reaction. I think I'd better play WoD again to whet my appetite for this!

Glad to see you guys are digging it (:

In other 'news'  it's getting close to WoD's first release anniversary, so I decided to count the numbers of the mediafire+moddb downloads+svn request of the core.vp file. The total number adds up to 1800. For those of you who are interested in knowning such a thing.

In terms of development; The assets creation is nearing completion, With tons of new ships, sounds and weapons in the lineup (more than I had originally planned). The storyline is currently still in a state of flux, however. As the original&mission structure has been thrown in the trashbin in favor of something more complex and unique.

Wow, over 1800, that's a lot.

Hopefully, I finish FREDding my campaign before WoD 2 is released :D

I'll have to get into WoD-Dev sometime when I'm not in the lab and see if I can't contribute to ye olde writing processe

Just got around to watching the Celestial video. Incredible work, Spoon. At first i thought they were a tad obstructive, but they kinda grew on me, and they didn't seem to interfere with your ability to play that much. The in-mission equipment system seems like its been well implemented as well. Really looking forward to 2.

Step one: Have great plans for wingmen.
Step two: Spend a few hours making a start with these plans, tables and textures are being made.
Step three: Start to realize the A.I. is pants on the head retarded and won't link its primary banks, no matter what flag or setting is used in the ai tables.
Step four: Sour.
Step five: Hope a coder brave enough to challenge the A.I. code comes along and fixes it.

That's...odd. Is it solely with split primaries, or with more than two banks?

The weird thing is I'm pretty sure I've seen the AI use all the banks available before.

On a few rare occasions the a.i. will switch banks to do a few shots with them before switching back to a more rapid fire bank. This is noticable with the Caliburn. I doubt you ever saw it firing all of its 3 banks though.
As far as all my tests has shown though, the a.i. only links all banks when attacking capital ships and only picks one bank against fighters with the rare switching going on.

Thing is I know I've been attacked by Hercs that were firing all six guns at the same time, but they had identical loads in both banks.
