Just to be sure, with that you mean you only put it paper, but already had the story in your head, or?

I put it on document (as attached here). The story, which not only encompasses Act 0, but also Act 1 to 5 at a preliminary stage. Apparently, this is the Shivans' story, not the Terrans' nor the Vasudans', because of two facts suggesting that they are not evil at the end of FS1 and in the debriefing of the Blue Planet: War in Heaven mission Universal Truth. It hints the same setting in the Mortal Engines film, but I am sure anything beyond Act 0 is still preliminary.

This is the same story document that I sent Woutersmits, so you might PM him?

Spoilers ahead.

Re: [WIP] SHATTERED STARS ACT 0 (DEMO)

Just a preliminary. Anyway, it was a mistake of releasing the design docs from the whole thing before putting even the demo out this December 14.

Anyway, have you PM'ed Woutersmits?

You could try to PM one of the staff members to delete the files, I don't know if you can delete them yourself.

Just unchecked the files attached in my previous post.

Anyway, I've played through the first mission. The UIMS Twinhooks (A and B types) in the mission are easy to hit with the primary weapons. The first parts of the mission is easy, but difficulty progresses slightly. Mission ends well, but debriefing texts needs to be worked on.

Shivan introns will play a larger role in Shattered Stars. Given that the Shivans taking center stage as the player's faction, I am sure players will take advantage of introns for the first time. The introns in Blue Planet is limited to the hostile Shivans.

This is one of those infinite train wreck situations isn't it
To consider the Earth as the only populated world in infinite space is as absurd as to assert that in an entire field of millet, only one grain will grow. - Metrodorus of Chios
I wept. Mysterious forces beyond my ken had reached into my beautiful mission and energized its pilots with inhuman bomb-firing abilities. I could only imagine the GTVA warriors giving a mighty KIAAIIIIIII shout as they worked their triggers, their biceps bulging with sinew after years of Ivan Drago-esque steroid therapy and weight training. - General Battuta

Kinda, these introns either augment or weaken certain Shivan vessels (the player included). When the player's ship receives introns, its characteristics (e.g. hit points, shields, armor, etc.) will either increase or decrease, as does its weapons. He/she may receive new weapons. In the end, players can take advantage of enemy targets with relative ease, but take care. As I found out, some introns cause the armor to be weakened, so any weapons fire can destroy the craft if the player is not careful enough.

wait so the player is playing a shivan... fighting other shivans?
The good Christian should beware of mathematicians, and all those who make empty prophecies. The danger already exists that the mathematicians have made a covenant with the devil to darken the spirit and to confine man in the bonds of Hell.

Playing a shivan fighting another race or two or more.

In fact, new WIP shots have been posted on ModDB. One of which shows the Shivans are not fighting other Shivans.

20181005 WIP

The shot of the SC Raguel in the nebula.

20181005 WIP

A three Shivan fighter beams trying to take out the enemy fighter. Did you notice there's a UIMS Faker fighter from Galaxian 3 and Star Ixiom? I guess the Shivans are fighting the UIMS after all.

20181005 WIP

An Eblis fighter fleeing from the Cylon basestars attacking.

20181005 WIP

A flight of Ifrit fighters flying over the Shivan Samael destroyer in the nebula.

20181005 WIP

A squad of Shivans patrolling the stormy part of the nebula.

20181005 WIP

The Eblis makes a pass of the installation under siege by Basestars.

These WIP shots have shown that FREDding has progressed.
