wait so the player is playing a shivan... fighting other shivans?
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.
The shot of the SC Raguel in the nebula.
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.
An Eblis fighter fleeing from the Cylon basestars attacking.
A flight of Ifrit fighters flying over the Shivan Samael destroyer in the nebula.
A squad of Shivans patrolling the stormy part of the nebula.
The Eblis makes a pass of the installation under siege by Basestars.
These WIP shots have shown that FREDding has progressed.
