Hey everyone, this is going to be a quick abbreviated newsletter because things have been busy for the newsletter crew and things don't seem to be slowing down right now on HLP. So here's the speedy scoop! (Pre-emptive apologies if I missed your stunning work of art!)
Trivial Psychic officially releases the first chapter for a redone FreeSpace 1 campaign. New missions, new ships, new objectives!
Mjn releases an update for Between the Ashes so it uses all the newest features for 3.8.0! APNG! MPEG movies! TTF Fonts! Bananas! (Okay that one was there already)
Orpheus has an update on some mission progress and ship balancing, and a cool looking gameplay video!
Bryan See has the mod working in standalone. Also got a fighter model WIP to show off. Also a (fairly extensive) help wanted post!
Woutersmits is working on a 20 mission demo for Happy New Year called "chaos of huin". No word on if there will be slaves.
Black Wolf gives a fairly extensive on how the next chapter of Frontlines is going. Basically, there's a lot of new models just dying to be blown up in spectacular fashion.
Spoon spends 4 days crafting a crushing and savage post about how dumb swarm missiles are. You won't believe what comes next! (Spoilers, it's silly bugs)
Axem (that's me) talks about modding and what the final JAD episode will look like.
DefCynodont119's campaign is getting close to release! It's going to have Shivans and explosions and possibly the Battle of Deneb!
General Battuta, in mystical oracle fashion, will answer any and all questions about the next chapters of Blue Planet. Ask and you will receive deadly spoilers!
Admiral MS has an update to the Ship Save/Load Script that had an error with saving variables!
(Also a small semi-related update to the screencam script)
BlackWolf releases this cute little Vasudan light carrier for agile force projection!
Starbug releases their whole fleet of fierce looking space warships!
Darius releases this textured model he textured by starbug, looks small and compact with a lot of firepower!
Nyctaeus releases a retexture of the PVC Neith that BlackWolf released a couple of months ago!
Bobbtmann releases a very jaw dropping pic of the Nebulon-B Frigate for Fate of the Galaxy!
Hades is texturing a giant container! Wow! Nice job!
WIP - Starbug Ships
Nyctaeus has a new carrier in the works in progress, looks good, meaty, and chunky!
This month's theme was EVIL. I challenged HLP to give me the most evil looking fleets or scenes, so that I may tremble for them!
And this month's winner was Nyctaeus' green-tinted black death ships from Shadow Genesis (I think that's the mod anyway, you never know with these super busybody modders)
This brings the scoreboard to…
- Darius - 1
- niffiwan - 1
- tomimaki - 1
- thisisaverylongusername - 1
- FrikgFeek - 1
- Nyctaeus - 1
Six months in and everyone is tied with 1 win. It won't take much to upset this tug of war.
Next month's theme is going to be… nothing! It's a Free Month
Don't let me tell you what to post. (As long as it is cool) (And awesome) (And amazingly shot)
Watch those HUD gauges (especially that sneaky FPS gauge) and check out the Screencam Script to help you win a badge and bragging rights. You can see the rules and the previous winners here on the Wiki. (When I get around to updating it anyway)
