Here are some screenshots of some of the backgrounds in the Unification
War demo. You can also see one of the new ships, the GTF Mustang Alpha.

Isn't that sun glow the subspace glow rotated 90 degrees?

But still, it isn't bad, Nice and colorful.

Yeah, it is. But I really though it looked good as a sun. Makes it look like a render.

See the engine glows on the Mustang Alpha? You can't see the difference that much, but they are beamglow-something- .pcx

Screens of the Mustang Alpha will come later, as well as the Mustang Beta.

EDIT: And remember, these screenshots would not have been possible if it weren't for the HUD toggle option. Thanx SCP!

As for the vertical line, I've seen them in loads of renders, as well as the fs1 opening cutscene. I think it looks pretty cool.

Looks interesting..

   And remember in space you don't need wings!
Don't think of it as being outnumbered. Think of it as having a wide target selection !

Only problem is that we won't be able to do this great backgrounds in the Unification War, as in Sol there is just one star. but I WILL get some backgrounds for the planets.

When will the new model for the Alpha be up for DL?

From now on, nothing is released to the public (No Models, and weapons, but screenshots are okay:D) until the main Unification War. If you really want to see the latest stuff bad, and you are a GOOD FREDer, then be a FREDer.


That Beta version was just to let my team get a feel for what might go on. But I decided to let you guys have it, see if any good missions were produced out of it. Authors of good missions were going to be considered as FREDers.

Slow down, people. Save the screenies and goodies.... ;)

Axem - Sorry to post again when I said I was leaving for good, but something was nagging me. I don't want to say it in a way that shames the campaign but I think we can all agree it is actually.. incomplete. It is missing... Voice Acting.
Quanto - I for one would love to lend my beautiful singing voice into this wholesome project.
Nuclear1 - I want a duet.

Why? I haven't even released a fraction of what we could release without spoiling it.

I think you should tune the color down on the suns..... it's far too intense.  I think FS had it pretty good actually.

I dunno... I always thought the FS suns looked a little washed-out.

Somewhere in the middle would probably look best.

I agree with Shrike. We may have a 'yellow' sun, but when you look at it it isn't THIS kind of yellow.

That's true.  One thing that IW2 pulled off was good environmental lighting, if the suns were (at times) rather brilliantly colored.
