That ship does look nice, found a pic of it.
First off welcome to SSC j3kyll.
I am hoping to take a crack at it next week sometime when I can get my hands on it. I have to order it since I couldn’t find it Best Buy or EB Games. But from the screenshots and some video I would have to say most of your assessment is correct. The quarters/hanger/pub graphics definitely should have been better. i mean for a game that has been in development this long looks like these graphics are 2005. The dialog isn’t that great and the voice overs (which I forgive them for) isn’t the best but they are Russian developer not english 🙂
I can’t say much about the combat yet but I hopefully will post a little article on this next week and I hope to get some thoughts and I will take lots of screenshots and upload them all. I know just looking at the space views and today’s offerings I was really hoping for X3, DS1 or SF2 graphics and I don’t think the Tomorrow War hits that mark but we’ll see.
I compare this game to Evochron Legends because it has the same play style. And single player games are not that bad j3kyll as long as the story is very compelling. If it isn’t it needs to have good MP and modding abilities. Is there any mod tools or tutorials for modding TTW so I can get them uploaded or review them?
Never got to experience these games since I never owned a PS1. Will have to do some searching and see if a remake or a port was ever done.
Well after trying in several different places and websites to gain access to the Darkstar One forums I think they are officially down for good 🙁 It’s a shame because there was some good info on those boards about the game. I will try to find more info and post it when I find some. I have at least the files in the download area and I was able to grab a few mods before the dev/publisher forums for DS1 went down.
I know Ascaron was in some financial trouble and maybe that is the reason. But please if you have any DarkStar One info or mods for DS1 please post it.
I just read that FOX has given the green light to The Fringe for a second season. This is probably one of the best TV shows on and it is good that it is going to continue on. J.J. Abrams did a good job on this one and hope we see this should around for sometime.
The Wing Commander Standoff team has given us a date for there final mission pack for Standoff the Wing Commander Secret Ops addon. It has been a long time coming but when it is done you will have over 30 missions total with FMV cutscenes with voice acting and a improved graphics. I know personally I have held off from playing the mod until it was completed and I will get the chance to play the completed mod on………… Aug 10, 2009.
Here is some comments from the developers webpage: http://standoff.solsector.net/Quote:
That’s 14 weeks and 3 days from today – or 101 days, if you prefer. Standoff will come to an end on 2009.222 – and not a day too early :-P.
August 10th also happens to be the Wing Commander CIC’s 11th birthday – so, no Standoff-related birthday gifts from us this year. Sorry ;-). No, but seriously – the CIC has been hugely supportive over the years, in more ways than I can even describe. Come to think of it, without the CIC, the various members of our team probably wouldn’t have even heard of each other. All in all, it seems really appropriate that our final release will be a birthday gift for the CIC and its – our – entire community.
Meanwhile – how’s about some progress? Well, Tempest reports that he’s received the last voiceovers from the final remaining external actor this week. Now, apart from cleaning & filtering those, he still has one final role to record by himself – and then we’re done with voiceovers.
…Or maybe not. We’ve spent quite a bit of time discussing what additional improvements might be made to the game during the extra time before release, and it may well be we’ll record a few more voiceovers before we’re done.
What about the rest of the team? I’m working away on improving the ship graphics, Pedro is working away on further graphical upgrades, Pierre is polishing up sim missions, and Quarto’s… ok, Quarto really hasn’t done anything since the last update. But he’s still working on that final mission, supposedly ;-). Only the testers seem to be goofing around. No computer? Come on, Dundradal, when has that ever stopped anyone? 😉
Cannot wait and if you have never played Wing Commander Secret Ops you can get it here and also get your key: wing-commander-series-f43/wcso-keygen-t27.html. It is a great game and a classic and it is nice to see people working on additions to this game to keep the Wing Commander spirit alive and well. Great job!May 3, 2009 at 11:31 am in reply to: What Space Games do you have the most memories of? #63539c0mas wrote:For me it’s definitely Privateer I 🙂 but very close are Privateer II and Freespace (I and II)
I enjoyed Privateer I & II very much. And I’m about to load up FS2 and install FSO and checkout some of these mods. That and I need to make a build of Vegastrike and checkout there progress.
There are so many games that I loved to play.
Taychon: The Fringe
Wing Commander 2
Wing Commander 4
Always wanted a sequel to Starlancer.
Go and play it 🙂
That gas cloud effect around the station looks very good and sets the right mood. Now wondering what the music sounds like 🙂
Is that an asteroid field in the background of that 2nd pic?
Great progress since the last time you posted thanks Sung and Xaron.
Nice to see most of the pieces are falling into place and the only thing that will be left is touching it up graphically. Is that music from the game itself? How many items will we be able to trade and can we salvage destroyed ships?
Oh on posting videos, if you notice in the posting screen I have some buttons (ie: google, youtube, etc) if you click on that and then stick your link to the video in between it should embed it (just use the preview button). I have a tutorial in the admin area.
The screenshots of the 125 look great, now I wonder if you can purchase an NPC co-pilot or if one is just given to you and they assist you in flight? The modeling looks great in the screenshots and the universe looks great.
Safe OC up to 7Ghz that is truly amazing. You would think if they could OC it that high why not just step up the chip at the factory and come out with 5-6Ghz chips and get people snatching them up and put pressure on Intel. AMD has to do something innovative because there stock isn’t doing that great and I think the only thing that keeps them really in business is the low prices on their chips and ATI gfx cards.
But I hope to build another machine for myself for Xmas, that’s only if Santa can still afford it after all the kids 🙂
Hi Killer and Welcome to SSC
Mod looks interesting from the description and screenshots. I will need to give it a try when I actually find some free time between work, family and SSC. Oh btw Killer you might want to make an official post in the Freelancer area on the site so it will get more attention. I will also add your modding website to my next links update.
I will also be making a flight sim area to more a general area since most users so far have been only interested in space sims I have neglected that area and will start posting info on that as well. Have fun on the site Killer and thanks to the Vanguard team on creating the Antares Mod.
The blur effect I like in the third pic, but overall nice detail.
Here is a post I did on the UT3 mod Planetstorm: viewtopic.php?f=10&t=223
There also working on a Nexus style 4x game.May 1, 2009 at 12:48 am in reply to: What do you want to see in Infinity: The Quest for Earth? #63199
That city is amazing. What would really take the cake is if you could descend down into it and fly inbetween buildings. That damn I-Novae engine rocks they built.Quote:– High radiation nebulae (class 7) can now prevent missile locks, limiting weapons to cannons and beams only while inside.
This sounds like a nice feature, I have always liked it when the environment plays a part in the game play. man I need more time to play games 🙂
Nice rig Omega. I have been debating whether to go with Phenom II for my next build is it a solid performer for you so far? And Kingston rocks for memory that’s all I ever buy and there support is great.
Damn Omega you have been busy the past few years 🙂 I find it hard enough to feed and clothe them all as it is couldn’t image that many. Ya got me beat.
I am definitely not a CSS expert but this width I have is for the people with resolutions down to 1024×7678 any lower and you start to mess up the template a little. With todays wide widths I sometimes forget there are people that actually don’t have a large screen monitor when laying out the site and get some complaints. But I know what you are saying about wasted space.
I have always wanted to put a moving background on the site. Almost like a flash background os space that moves a little while browsing I always thought it would look great for the site. Just don’t know how to do it and will someday find the time to get it done and try it out.
This portal (stargate portal) just went to v1.0.0 and has a bunch of fixes and features and by far the best portal that I have tried for phpbb3. Worth a shot I have to start playing around with it so I can migrate the site to that version hopefully in the next two weeks.
I looked into various CMS programs and went back to phpbb created CMS. This current one is still beta but RC came out today and this weekend I will start playing with it and getting ready to upgrade to it. But phpbb is very stable and like it a lot and most of the bridges that tied into Drupal or WordPress etc, wasn’t the greatest in stability.
I hoping with the next upgrade to put some pieces into the site that will help with SEO and search engine placement. Since I have $0 advertisement budget better the rankings in the search engines the more people will find this place. I definitely know what your talking about having no time. I don;t have 6 websites but do have 2 websites and 5 kids so I think thats even 🙂
I found your website the other day actually. Never saw the old layout but new one looks nice. I too started my days with Tradewars and Yankee trader (I have a forum dedicated to TW that I need to pay attentyion too). I have both Free Allegiance and B5:IFH in the links area. I just haven’t done an official post on the game put eventually get around to it. Right now just trying to track down the bulk of the recent and under development games.
Thanks for checking out the site and talk with ya later. Long live TW2002 🙂
I also added your website to my links area under community section.
Nice video and great progress on Galaxy Empire. I will try to get this installed this week sometime and play around with it. Can we put the game in windows mode or take screenshots easily?
