We've been pretty quiet for some time, so here's something to show our progress.

These are shots of couple (almost) finished MG missions, not yet featuring our excellent new weapons made by Miburo. Notice the nice new effects and backgrounds :)

Here's some nice shots of our new CB anims











And finally, some shots of our cutscenes. Sadly, we can't show you our best screens, as they contain pretty big spoilers.










Oh, I should propably thank Artbeats for making those excellent new explosions, and Fabio for the planets used in the cutscenes and some backgrounds.

My two favorite vessels... (asuming that is indeed a typhon)

I'd DL this for the cutscenes alone. :D

Yep. It is a Typhon. CF has done some great work on the the cutscenes and he is still improving some of them :)

We occassionally joke that we should just drop the FS2 bit and just make MG into an animated movie :D

I really can't wait until this gets released! Way to go guys.

Aaaah!  This is precisely the kind of thing we're looking for to put in the TVWP... do you have any generic solar system cutscenes you might be willing to lend us? ;)

CF has stated that it's very easy for him to put something like that together. We don't have a generic anim at the moment but now you mention it I guess it wouldn't hurt :)

Hmmmm.... something to keep you drooling (not) :)




Goober, as karajorma said, making those .ani's is extremely easy. If you need something, I might be able to help you. :)

Yeh, just make a sphere, wireframe it. :p

I'd have to say that shockwave is overused. Everyone uses that Lightwave shockwave tutorial for their shockwaves these days...

Everything else is  :yes: I suppose.

Um. CF that orion is still mirrored. I assume it was from a test run and not the finished anim since you said you'd got rid of the mirroring.

Take a closer look. It's not mirrored :D

I guess you're right, DragonClaw. That shockwave is used alot. But at least we beginners have something to play with. :) Maybe I should tweak it a little to make it a bit more unique?

Yeah, you could try to adjust the colors a little, perhaps play with the distance with which the shockwave goes transparent in the texture tab. If your brave enough, you could adjust it in modeler :)  Hmm, I wonder what an oval shockwave would look like...

More screenies, crappy ones, yes I know. I'm poor at taking screenies try to blame me for that and I eat you :D








Well this was really poor attempt to show couple new weapons as you see very well it failed :rolleyes:
Besides I can't really show you any beauties we have in MG, they're on top secret and will stay in that way until we're done for release ;7
