Re: 09-04-05 - Cylon Basestar
It's time to show some in-game shots, previous ones were renders. Also, previous ones didn't have the lights - I set up a light rig and baked glow maps for the game model. All are taken from the game, first 3 from the lab, the rest from an actual mission. No hot Cylons babes were harmed during the making of these screenshots.

Is that really the shape of things to come?
It's... beyond awesome!!!  :D :yes:

Now you finally did it and made this lurker get an account... hi there everyone!  :)

Great work everyone, I'm really looking forward to the release (whenever that may be, take your time!).

Am I right in thinking that's the first in-game shot of Theseus too?

First time in-game? Perhaps. It's not as close to being done as the basestar, which is why you only get to see it from the distance, for now.

First one we've deliberately released. There were a couple of accidental ones but I think we stomped on them. :)

In theory, if every slot housed a raider, and you launched all of them at once, you'd have 864 raiders in the air. Well, vacuum :)

Re: 09-04-05 - Cylon Basestar
One thing I've noticed is that a lot of people seem to panic about FPS when they see this ship :) I've tested the basestar on my not-so-new system in a variety of missions and found no FPS problems. And the thing doesn't even have LODs yet, plus I was using tga's so no mipmaps yet either. Final version will both have LODs and dds textures with full mips so I wouldn't worry about the FPS. Current systems are able to handle large amounts of polygons - and a space game is specific because there's no environment to be modeled - a starfield or a simple skybox does the trick most of the time. So we can have a bit more detailed ships without any problems..
