We're still not dead - here's a video!
I know it seems pretty dead around here, but there's plenty of activity going on behind the scenes and on our discord channel.  I created this gameplay video while doing some stress testing, enjoy!

Only made it to 0:10 yet, it's so nice seeing the SD getting rammed.

Just got back to HLP a few days ago and had no idea about this mod, but this vid looks amazing. Can't wait to see the finished product.

It should have already been WIP since you were around in 2002 or 3. Just saying. :D

Yeah, but back in 2002, all the Freespace mods were barely formed and I had no idea how to get any of them working, assuming that they were even completed back then. Also, we didn't have Knossos to make downloading them and keeping track of them much easier. :P :warp:

wait wtf is going on there in 0:25 - 0:29, are those ray traced reflections? what god's work have you been doing here? Is this related to some hidden work by The_E or other in-house genius?

Wasn't me :P

Thanks, we’re very happy you think so! It’s finally looking how we’d like, too.

I love that auto-track circle on the lead indicator.

Is that Bryan See's work?

There's no CTD in a 4 minute video so no.

Re: We're still not dead - here's a video!
Would it be possible to have some status update on the forums too? Most info since the 2018 "We're in Beta now!" got stuck at Discord.

Watched this the other day - bravo!

I will note that my only concern is FS' rather poor control interface, but then perhaps my experience has just not been as good as someone else's. It would be a blast to just plug in a stick and go to town with this, if you will.

...Here's a quick question: does FSO currently allow free-look with a hat switch, etc? I found that during the course of the video, I constantly wanted to look around! :D

Re: We're still not dead - here's a video!
I don't think there's complete free look yet, just "look left/right/back/up" and "target lock" where your view is fixed on your target. Or TrackIR if you have the right setup.

Re: We're still not dead - here's a video!
Actually we do indeed have full freelook :) The cockpits are fully modeled too so even in calm conditions it’s very fun to look around.

So yes you can look at cardinal directions with the hat, and then use the mouse or joystick  to do full freelook.
