Third part of Descent saga, this version brings even more explosions, spaceships and flights. An unforgettable 3D-action experience, with innovative 360-degree technology, new control system and advanced collision detection. Forget about gravity, and fly in many, beautiful areas - subterranean strongholds and more. Descent 3 brought many improvements, such as open areas and great graphics improvements - while Descent 2 was still using the old, original engine, the third part of the series brought it into a new dimension. This game was undoubtedly one of the greatest hits of 1999. This includes the Descent 3: Mercenary expansion.

Does anyone have the pyromania 1.2.1 mod?

Sadly dateiliste.com is gone and that was the only location on the net for the pyromania files :(

Okay, there are several Descent sites where you can find more than just mods, but the 2 places I know of to get the Pyromania mod for Windows are Descentforum.net , there is a list of files and mods for D3, Pyromania is the first on the list. The other site to go to is www.planetdescent.com where you can find out anything about any descent game and download/upload everything ever made for descent.

About the mod, though. Pyromania should be installed in the folder descent is installed in. It will make its own executable through which you can play the game. The movies are disabled when using Pyromania, but the advantage of it is that you can play through all the levels of Descent 3 with 3 new ships and all the weapons of Descent 1 & 2. For multiplayer there are 3 extra ships in addition to the 3 ships usable in single-player mode. The 6 total ships are named as follows: Black Pyro (MP), Black Star (SP), Pyro-GX (SP) Pyro-SX (SP), Pyro-GE (MP), and the Starhawk. The Black Pyro and Starhawk have Dual-Missile launching capability. I may upload the installer later once I find out if it's legal to distribute it.

Also, Pyromania, along with the graphics, works better with patch v1.4 or better.

I had forgotten how good the graphics were on this one, considering it was 1999 when it came out.

if you can find it, the two disk version works on everything from 98 to XP, even when unpatched, but i sugest going to www.descent3.com and get the double jewl fix and get the official 1.4 patches

And as far as I know, Descent 1 was the first "True" 3d game :) Unless someone can name me another one.

It was the first 3D game as we know 3D games today, but it was by no means the first game to have 3D graphics.
