Re: One-Year Anniversary: It's Basically Done
I just got to see another lovely little aesthetic touch involving scripteage and what I believe is a new SCP feature by the mighty Wanderer. It's nothing huge, but it is pretty.

The_E also did something very cool with model animations.

Progress on the key stuff before release continues apace.

Is it ... TRANSFORMATION?
Long time ago, you see, there was this thing called the VBB and... oh, nevermind.

No. That would be silly.

There must be changes, miss to feel strong
I really need lifе to touch me

Most likely things like weapon ports opening and closing and flaps changing position when using the afterburner, like it's already the case with the Jackal/Kentauroi as it's used in Dawn of Sol.
But what the SCP feature could be, I have no idea.

Edit: Could it be this? http://www.hard-light.net/forums/index.php?topic=69696.0

No, not at all. Those features come built in with the Federal Fighters Pack. The Dawn of Sol team had nothing to do with adding those.

Dawn of Sol used those fighters essentially as they were presented. We've done a bit more customization.

And the external weapons thing is already in place.

I know that the ships were made by someone else, but if someone want's to see firsthand how that looks, they can do so by playing DoS, that's all I meant to say.

Indeed. It's also a good place to see that the fighters are poorly optimized and don't have any people in the cockpits.  ;7

So you finally optimized them?

Re: One-Year Anniversary: It's Basically Done
Some have been optimized, some have not (the most common ones took priority.)

We'll get as much done as is practical before release, but release will probably not be held up for the remaining non-optimized ships to get optimized.

One finished and one half-finished doesn't really count as plural if we're talking about "done".

Yeah but it doesn't qualify as a flat 'no' either.
