News, updates, et cetera
Updates will be coming here from me and others as well, and a bunch of screenshots also if I get around to paste them in here in a bit.

Re: News, updates, et cetera
To start with something eyecandy-ish, here is a little something that I've put together for our one year anniversary. Please note that some of these are not actual missions, sometimes I've resorted to a bunch of ships duking it out in mission files set up solely for this video. In other words, you won't see 6 cruisers mashed upon each other with no coherence, this is no SGWP2.

With nothing more to say, here is our anniversary teaser.

Let's begin with a bit too hectic dogfight and a reference to one of the best FSO campaigns.

Yeah, that discussion bit is censored for now.

Here are the rest of the pictures I currently have that I've found good enough to share:

Poor pilot.

Cruiser battles are fun.

Behold... the Ravana!

Never far away from HLP and from a computer with an installed FreeSpace.

The images look like either the graphics were turned down or the graphics from FSO and FSP aren't being used. I still like the screen shots, very nice.

Way too many people use the Federal pack without reskinning.

And you don't even have an excuse for why it should look different from the canon ships!

Just taking a peek at it should explain why.

True, but the last time somebody put out a mod that felt like it had any real continuity of Terran designs was INR1.

I believe most post-FS2 mods are as close to FS2 as FS2 was to FS1. The factor is largely irrelevant anyway; models are not a particular determinant of mod quality.

Remember that there are going to be four different factions in this mod.
Wouldn't it be a bit odd if all four use the same ship designs?

Re: News, updates, et cetera
Back in a bit I've posted polls regarding the use of FFPack ships. I went with the community's opinion - the voters had no problem with it.
That might form though.

If the quality of the pictures are not the best, that is the fault of my computer and I am sorry for any inconvenience that causes.

Just please for God's sake get the optimized Lancer and Jackal from War in Heaven.

That I'll be glad to do. Some of the models might probably go obsolete after the tech revamp anyway.

We'll try to get you as many more optimized Steve-O ships as we can, if we get anything done well before the next WiH release.

People are stupid, therefore anything popular is at best suspicious.

Hey that's a damocles! That's TVWP you can't use it i'm gunna sue you in England! :lol: ROFL just kidding. Project sounds quite interesting, and those backgrounds are beautiful (especially the planet). Yeah it sounds vaguely similar to TVWP but when trying to to tell a story set in the same sort of period its quite hard not to. I reckon it'll end up being completley different anyhow, and its good to see another take on things. All the best, look forward to playing it when its out. :yes:

I've always figured once the model has been used in a released campaign, you're smart enough to realize you don't have rights to more than credit anymore. :P
