Re: [RELEASE] Diaspora: Shattered Armistice
I had this image sitting on my computer for some time. It is an older version of the Theseus. I made an attempt to texture it, but it was not really realistic. After that Newman took over, optimized the ship, made some tweaks, and painted it nicely.

I made this render to show the size of the ship, because few fans complained that the flightpods are too small. So I took a 747-400, put it in the flightpod, and made a few renders about the ship, this is one of them. I do not have that V-ray setup anymore, so I cant make more pictures, but I thought that some of you might like it. You can see the full size picture if you click on it.

Re: [RELEASE] Diaspora: Shattered Armistice
Hehe, I had some in-game comparison shots using a 747 at one point. They might still be posted for all I know.

Fantastic news! I've still been popping in and lurking to keep up to date. Very proud. Always good to see talented people put something amazing together :)

Nice to see you again Quiet. If you fancy becoming active again, we'd love to have you back. :)

Re: [RELEASE] Diaspora: Shattered Armistice
I am now going to watch BSG to see what I'm apparently missing.

And this, right here, is exactly why I say that mods are good for the IP holder. All over the world you've got people getting fired up about BSG again, and people who like flight sims but never watched BSG deciding that maybe they missed out and need to go to iTunes or Hulu or whatever and get hold of the episodes. Hell, maybe we've even shown Syfy that there's a big demand for BSG, big enough to finally release Blood and Chrome.

IIRC the episodes are available on Hulu.

Also Netflix.

Re: [RELEASE] Diaspora: Shattered Armistice
I can easily watch the first two seasons (barring the pilot) on Hulu. (Don't they have all four available?)

For guys in the States and have a digital service, they air it on BBC America every weekday afternoon (after Ramsay's Kitchen Nightmares).

After playing through Shattered Armistice, I regret going to sleep 90 minutes into the pilot (hey, it was midnight when they decided to play it).

Spoiler:
My brother popped in when I was playing the last mission and said "Plot twist: player character's a Cylon." I refuse to believe that. There's no evidence yet.  :D


EDIT: As of Fall 2012, BBC America airs the revived BSG at 8AM in the weekday mornings. The rest of the days are filled with Top Gear or Kitchen Nightmares.

Funnily enough, the moment I got a good look at the Prometheus I was thinking 'Improvised Carrier".  And sure enough, I get to dock with it...

 
Re: [RELEASE] Diaspora: Shattered Armistice
Thanks guys!  I'm in space shooter overload this year (that's not a bad thing) and this was an utter surprise (a pleasant one).  You guys rock!  I gave it a quick spin and was very impressed with a lot of nifty custom things ya'll added (3d pit with working radar overlaid onto model!!!!), custom HUD etc.  Models are awesome too.  Top notch!  Well done!

Whoever got the idea of also putting up a torrent has my sincere thanks. Where else can you download a FS2 mod with 4 MBit/s :yes:

We did the same thing with BtRL for much the same reasons, just too much data for everyone to use HTTP.

Re: [RELEASE] Diaspora: Shattered Armistice
!!!

I'd been hoping that the recent silence was a good thing, but quietly knew that there would always be more waiting... So when I loaded up the forum today, as I have been doing for yeeaaaars, and saw all the 'new threads' I thought maybe my cookie had been reset or something. It's a bit surreal to think it's out there now, so well done devs! Can't wait to play it ;)

Re: [RELEASE] Diaspora: Shattered Armistice
At the moment we have a vague plan to centre each major release around a battlestar. Since we have at least two more we've shown you pictures of, you can start fighting amongst yourselves about which one we're using for R2. :D


Oh BTW, get used to us talking a lot more. We're done flying under the radar now. :D

Those with either a good memory or good old post digging skills will know what battlestar is getting introduced next. At least until we do a dev blog post about it.

Re: [RELEASE] Diaspora: Shattered Armistice
I hope R2 comes out soon, I loved the chaotic, messy, scary, *glorious* dogfights. It was just too gorram short. Great job all around although the lack of voice acting during briefing is odd (and no, it's not because of the memory bug you guys have talked about, I got the lack of VA for briefings the first time I played.)

Thanks for the compliments.
On the VA issue, do you mean to say that you heard no VA, ever? Because the VA bug will mean you will hear it for, say, the first 3 missions, then no longer if you play in one sitting.
