Let me join in on the praise, this is flat out amazing!
The overall attention to detail, the flight model, the sounds, the voice acting, the whole atmosphere, it all hits home - I can't remember being immersed so much into a game for many, many years.
Between experiencing the great feel of the Diaspora flight model for the first time, as well as me having finally put in the effort to make my TrackIr system work properly, today has definitely been a new peak of PC flying experience for me.
Having watched the whole show twice on DVD (and the big battle scenes a lot more often
), I was very much looking forward to finally get to play Diaspora for the last few years. Now, shooting out the launch tube in the first mission and diving right into the action was such an overwhelming and satisfying moment.
I've only finished a few missions so far and I'd already like to say that every single day of the wait has been worth it.
So, my deepest thanks to the whole team for all the effort you put into this, and as a labour of love to boot. You are all awesome!
