The one penetrating the Orion is surely bigger, though...it must be an LRed. The Moloch beam might be an SRed concept(it looks different) and the beam turret is misplaced, too.

Hence, the box art is bollocks.

Why're we discussing about the box art anyway?

Re: Interplay website, FS2, Inferno WTF ??
Because it's relevant to what's shown on Interplay? :nervous:

It's boxart it's meant to be shiny and draw people to it. Which it does.

Re: Interplay website, FS2, Inferno WTF ??
I don't think so. Box arts that used pure CGI stuff get a lot of attention.

Quake 1, red alert and FreeSpace. There are three of my favourite box arts. They're not too cgi. In fact i can't think of that many that are.

Colony Wars had damn cool CGI box arts, just to give an example. Recent Ace Combat games use it as well.

Ah, ok... :D

Please note that we're not off topic, we're simply...discussing a few cool box arts in CGI. As you can see they're far better. :nod:

Do try to drift things a bit more tangentially back to a semi-topical topic, though. :p

Halt! Stop! We're going the wrong way! :shaking:


It seems that the original topic has fulfilled it's purpose, but out of interest - has there been any similar occurrences regarding other games and publishers? I mean, fan-made content ending up into official use. Apart from cases where the publisher actually bought the mod team to develope a game...
There are three things that last forever: Abort, Retry, Fail - and the greatest of these is Fail.

Re: Interplay website, FS2, Inferno WTF ??
Actually I thought it was FractalSponge's, unless that's an alt nick he uses.  But yeah, it's the closest thing I know of to a company taking fan work, not an original concept, but still the hard work of a fan and he ended up getting no credit in the end for it.  Wasn't even a model they used in the game I don't think.

Re: Interplay website, FS2, Inferno WTF ??
Your right it was Fractal Sponge.  He's built quite a bit of fantastic Imperial equipment (http://www.scifi-meshes.com/forums/3d-wips/2212-star-wars-projects-thread.html) , I got him mixed with AdrigK who made a nice Pegasus a while back.  As for ingame unless they used it for the accompaning cutscene the game model certainly wasn't.  Of course having an Imperator Star Destroyer in atmo retcons canon, only Victories were supposed to do that :P
