Impressive.

I'll look forward to this. Might inspire me to get back into Freespace modding.

Can I draw your attention to this thread? You probably missed me necroing it.

Spoiler:

So come on everyone! If he delivers, it's our job to create a buzz and spread the word that something awesome has arrived! :)

This is probably the excuse I need to actually play FS again.

All that beam spam looks pretty GPU intensive. Should be a good excuse to heat up my R9 290X so I don't have to turn up my radiators and burn expensive butane, especially with the sky-high prices in Europe now.

@Spoon: Well, since I'm finally graduated and shifting towards kicking my conspiratorial nutters family, I'd be more than willing to get those models to anyone who wants them. I had to stop modding and most personal projects due to the madness I deal with at home. I have a DVD/hard disk backup of my old work. And several other projects that I scrapped due to conflicts with team members (one project had my team members revolt against me because I became incoherent and disillusioned with it after they tried to meddle with all the inner workings).

Looks like some really great progress was made. I don't play FS much anymore, but I might come back just for that. :) I kind of wish I was still on the team, but I don't think I could be of much use now.

Are all of the new and reworked ships going to be available to play with in FRED when this is released? Or just the ones that appear in these missions?

I have a favour to ask, if it's not too much trouble. If the Lord class is available, could you include the Soaring Spirit? It doesn't have to be in the main release, it could be a little side download that I could put in to be able to FRED and play with my forum game flagship. :)

All the ships that are done are going to be in the first episode release, and a bunch of them are still on my to rework list and will probably be redone by the time of episode 2.

I checked the maps and the Soaring spirit texture (its just the same texture with a name on it) is still in there. No harm in keeping it there for you I guess!

Well, when I'm not struggling to squelch my desire to yell at family members, I'll get to work on digging out my hi-poly models and donate them to the fine cause here.

So maybe a January release is slightly too optimistic of a goal, so allow me to quickly distract you with the website Axem put together for WoD:

Sounds like Dawn's going to be player character now?

Unless it's a just for show screenshot, or some extenuating circumstances storyline-wise, looks like we aren't friendly with the Cyrvans if the SF are going up against the Cyrvans in that first screenshot.

I see the old WoD2 intro video up on the site. Is that just for show, or are you taking things in the direction you intended to for WoD2 and that's our actual opening movie?

I also see you get to fly with the Cyrvans if the screenshot is anything to go by with the player in an Aestival.

That Terran vs. Cyrvan screenshot could be anything from a history-cutscene of the war, over a rebellion in which the Cyrvans help out, destroying a ship that got captured by aliens a simulated fleet battle or even a nightmare of the player character. I'm not going to interprete too much into it for the time being without more information.

It is a nice page.

"Though the developer feasts on compliments and constructive feedback, so feel free to give him that in the forums"  :lol:
I'll try to feed you a bit once the first release comes out. ;)
