It could be a little more public than being lost in the Blue Planet subforum, but there's the how-to.

 
Re: The official Diaspora eyecandy thread

These are the best screenshots I've ever seen with the free space engine  ;) Really nice work!!
I think it looks like a finished high budget game (except for real shadows :ick:)
Is that a basestar blowing up in the first picture? I can see a lot of large debries, can we break them all of seperately like in the fourth trailer?
I really like the change of colours in battle or calm space.

BTW what's up with the vertical rudder from the markVII in the last picture? it doesn't seem to be there, and it has things around the wings!, is it a new surprise viper version?

Re: The official Diaspora eyecandy thread
My guess is an ECW Viper variant.
Nevermind all that, apparently looks are deceiving.

It could just be the VII-E.

Re: The official Diaspora eyecandy thread
Doubtful, the Viper in the screenshot has A. Less of a vertical stabilizer than the Malestrom Viper Mk. VII, B. The pods on the wings are shown going all the way through instead of stopping half-way, and C. There's small ventral fins that neither Mk. VII model had.
Looks like I've been tricked.

The VII-E is unique to Diaspora, it's not from the show.

Good thing there's the dev log to see the post with the ship.
God it hardly looks like a bomber other than being bigger. :blah:

Yep, put that in some FAQ or something.

It's actually been only 12 days since the last update, check the dev blog. It's a sub forum so I guess some people miss it.

Not got much to say other than this is looking well worth the wait. Hopefully the gameplay will match the visuals. ;)

Direction, RAnge, DIStance. :D

I think this is the canonical one but it makes no sense at all.

Probably because the English-speaking actors would have a hard time with DVEDIS. :D

DRADIS was a term grandfathered in from the original show. The "Direction/Range/Distance" thing was AFAIK a backronym.

It's probably way too late to do anything about it but I thought the picture of the guy on his knees (the one the pilots all touch before going out on mission in the TV series) would be a nice feature to have there.

Regardless, can't wait for this to come out!
So say we all!
