New ship selection and HUD interfaces and new player ships.


This is a video update of the Phoenix USC preview demo featuring a new ship interface. This ship selection interface lets you choose from five preview demo ships. I also take ships Star Jag and Star Eagle - Gold for a little test drive. Below, I have also included a couple images of the new HUD and ships interfaces.

New player ships and new HUD and ship selection interfaces.

I am just a tad behind in development. I redesigned the interfaces to be easier to use and improved the look. The demo now only lacks a settings interface similar to the ships interface in design, a few teaks and adjustments to code and packing files for installation. So I am hoping to get what I need done over the next week. It's a small delay but worth it to have a nice looking and well running demo. :)

You can always stay up to date on my progress by following me on Twitter at @PhoenixUSC. Thanks for supporting Phoenix USC.

As a user of BlitzMax, it is definitely one of my favorite languages out there. The Eschalon Book 1,2 and 3 were written in BlitzMax for a nice little showcase for it. Definitely depends on your end target though.

If you don't have an account, I'll answer it for you. Yes you can, But you would have to know how to read and write files.
