Awesome~

Where did you get the Skybox and the planet from? Did you make them yourself?

Re: The First Contact War - DevLog Thread
This week has primarily seen focus on the visual department. I'm sure you're all familiar with the usual subspace warp animation, or the shield impact image. This shall further the progress towards making this a complete standalone as well as giving the whole universe a more distinct tone that is familiar yet also different from FS2.

So I went ahead and changed both.





I've also been playing around with skyboxes and such.







EDIT: Forgot to mention, the interface is getting more work on now too.

Nice! Given the direction of the model styles, the shield and warp effects fit right in.

Re: The First Contact War - DevLog Thread
Ever wondered what the hangar of the carriers may look like? No? Doesn't matter, you'll see it anyway.

I rendered a nice background image of a carrier hangar, perhaps for the use of VN Backgrounds, or just eyecandy.

You're doing a great job! Are you planning to add animations and mobile parts to these hangars?

Re: The First Contact War - DevLog Thread
It is a possibility. Blender's animation tools I'm already quite familiar with, so depending on how time goes, I might animate it at some point.

Re: The First Contact War - DevLog Thread
I rendered a couple more interior images.

This one is from the crew quarters deck of your main carrier.



And this is your quarters.

Am I missing something? Are you going to show the interiors of ships during the game?

Yep, during VN Segments or just as mainhalls.


Now it's time for the Gliseans to receive some assets. Presenting the GCSF Corsair and the newly freshened up GCSF Gremlin





And the Tokyo II has its main frontal beam cannon up.

Re: The First Contact War - DevLog Thread
Thank you! I'm really happy as well with how fast the mod is progressing, especially assets wise. In fact, I've managed to accrue just about enough assets to begin working on the demo as well. Expect it to be released some time in two to three weeks, if things go well.

(The plot featured in the demo will be a wholly different one from the main campaign. Here you will be part of a small patrol group checking the border systems near Barnard's Star for any potential enemies. Chronologically it takes place right before the main campaign.)

Re: The First Contact War - DevLog Thread
I am very sorry but this weekend there wasn't much to show off. Exam time is nearing so I can't quite dedicate as much time to this project as I could before, for at least the next few weeks. I will still try to work on it as much as possible though, but life does take precedence.

Re: The First Contact War - DevLog Thread
HOWEVER that doesn't mean I won't show off the odd cool thing here and there every once in a while.



Here's a railgun, barrel length at a whopping 180 meters, initially supposed to be mounted on army mechs before the size rendered this idea inefficient (for now). The navy does however like to employ this one. Where? You'll see.

Is this for some kind of ship-build-around-weapon design?

Re: The First Contact War - DevLog Thread
Pretty much. Such a ship would most likely only have this railgun as its main weapon but that would then also be an incredibly powerful weapon in its own right.

Though another concept involves mounting this weapon onto an "Arsenal Ship", a one of a kind heavy cruiser posessing an exorbitant amount of heavy weaponry.

The Glisean Carrier has been remastered! It looks much fancier now than the original model. I've also gone ahead and renamed it as the "GCSV Tempest" instead of the old name of "Supremacy"
