More screenshots! (and some new videos, too!)
Finally, ship nameplates are working properly! The new shaders for the 3.6.14 mediavps (available in this thread and in the 3.6.12 mediavps patch/update

I've been working on a simulator mission to help players learn essential combat tactics.

The videos are encoded in OGG Theora, so you may need to use VLC to play it, though some web browsers support playing OGG theora natively. Also, sorry for the lack of sound, but the software I was using to record these videos doesn't support audio capture. BTW, these videos work really well in Firefox 4!
