The Ares has always been so underrated. I'm glad it got the upgrade it deserved.  :yes:

At long last, the Ares gets its new coat of paint. Sexy Spud.

Re: The Highest Definition Potato
So we have a preview download ready; how long until the final deal is ready?  ;7

I'm just waiting on a screenshot that shows the Ares' new golden canopy window.  :cool:

Re: The Highest Definition Potato
The download there is what I submitted to mjn and the team. They may find a problem with it and fix it, so that's why this is a preview version. And this does have a golden canopy, but I made it a very reflective gold, that reflects the black of space more than the gold it's actually colored with... That could be fixed if mjn wants it changed.

 
Re: The Highest Definition Potato
Doing God's work buddy. It's one of my favorite ships in the game, and this remake is incredible.

Re: The Highest Definition Potato
The first time I played FS2, I failed to noticed that this vessel exists at all. They just silently introduce new fighters at the end for whatever reason...    Erinyes has a spotlight, but nothing else.

I always wondered what the storz of the Artemis D.H. and Ares was exactly here...

Re: The Highest Definition Potato
Both the Artemis DH and Ares are missable; they are allowed to the player as rewards for playing the SOC loops

Re: The Highest Definition Potato
Dark Horse, I guess, considering the D.H. is supposed to be more maneuverable (but isn't) in retail; it was probably planned to be better than Artemis but the minimal visual difference would have made those better stats a suprise

Deaths head.

Gotta be, like the hawk-moth.   I've always thought so since retail when I saw the skull.
