Here is a brief outline of the current status of the standalone release of INFA.

Modes:
Current the modpack can be run in either INFA, INFA2, or FSPort modes which determine starting weapons and the main game balance. FSPort mode is the general FS1 mode, removing all railguns and balance changes, INFA mode is the standard, and INFA2 mode brings flak and beams into the mix. All weapons are available in all modes, just the default loadouts are changed, but the EA ships are unique to INFA2 mode to keep the table limit down. INFA2 mode will not be available in the first release.

Mission Update
INFA campaign is now extended to thirty missions, of which about 5 are in progress.

 
Woot! Punisher Cannnon!  :D
 
Wait a second... I don't see the Lindos anywhere on that shiplist. Please don't say it has been dropped.  :(


Anyhow, that's great news. I'm really looking forward to this...

The Lindos does not appear in INFA2. It was developed afterward. So was the Ryujin. The destroyers the EA use are the Zagreus and the Tereus instead.

 
Oh good. I like the Lindos. It would have been horrible to not have it in the mod anymore.

The final EA ship list for INFA2 hasn't been decided yet, what is currently up there are the confirmed ships.

A new trailer of the current INFA mod, mostly new INFA missions, a few oldies and scenes from Awakenings and the FS1 main campaign.

 
Awww... that movie file crashes WMP.

I'll just wait for someone to upload it to youtube, or something.

A very nice trailer indeed. :)

Is your take on the Leviathan compatible with ordinary Freespace?  Its nice to see a visually distinct Leviathan that isn't just a color change.
If a man consults whether he is to fight, when he has the power in his own hands, it is certain that his opinion is against fighting.

More or less, I had to move the turrets slightly so they weren't in the hull or floating in space but it has the same basic configuration, and it seems to work fine when used in the FS1 campaign.

Would you care to post it up, or keep it reserved for the eventual INFA Release?

We have discussed about modifying the armament(adding more turrets, for example)but appears that the INFA Leviathan is going to remain as it is :)

I don't know if normal Leviathan nameplates are compatible with this INFA Leviathan model.

I was about to PM Goober5000, requesting a week suspension from HLP. I want to be momentarily banned from GW and SG as well. This will improve my chances of FREDding as I used to.

But MSN is almost invincible. Admiral Edivad considers it a Tyrant... :eek2:
