Omega Team presents:
Continuation of award winning games Conflict: FreeSpace and FreeSpace 2

Once again, the GTVA is in turmoil. The aftermath of Capella, 20 years ago, has manifested in widespread unhappiness throughout the Terran and Vasudan populace. However, political strife and scheming have begun to decay the established government from the inside out. As a new Vasudan leadership emerges, a breakaway faction forms - the Vasudan Reformation Camp.

Immediately, the GTVA is plunged into yet another full-scale war against a well-equipped, separatist force intent on destruction on a galactic scale - But this is not even half the story. Behind the fog of war, hidden in the shadows, the Security Council plans its next move. And as the way back to the Terran homeworld is becoming clear, the end of all civilization rises up over the horizon.

As always we give you monthly project update. If you're intrested of what have we done this month, check out this news!

1. Introduction
2. Mission design status
3. Modelling and texturing status
4. Music composing status
5. Earth Defense is hiring!

1. Introduction

We're working hard to give you playable release (Chapter 1) with bunch of weapons, ships and 10 mission long action packed campaign. We're done with many things, however there's yet a lot of job to do. If you want to get a peek of things that are just to come go ahead and read more :)

2. Mission design status

Currently we've got only two active mission designers (Snail and me). We've already done 5 missions of first chapter, another 5 are in production. When we're done with mission designing, testing phase will start that include grammar correction, correcting minor bugs. The next step will be recording Voice Acting. We're finally getting this campaign done! This is short preview of mission/level I'm currently working on:

It's also great preview of new backgrounds that you'll see in our first release.

3. Modelling and texturing status

Recently we've hired new modeller, Esarai. He has already done great job on modelling and texturing SC Shax that you've already seen in January update. Now we proudly present you still unnamed Shivan corvette modelled by Moonred and textured by Esarai:

We've got also more ships, but they're still in early "Work-in-progress" status so we don't want to show them to you yet. But trust me, you're gonna give you high quality stuff! :) For another two renders of this corvette, check out our gallery section.

4. Music composing status

Currently our music composing is on hold, because Daddy Warhol, Earth Defense music composer, is working for Inferno: Alliance. You've already heard master pieces composed by him in our trailers and preview videos and he has done awesome job. You can expect more in incoming preview videos!

5. Earth Defense is hiring

Yes! If you love Science fiction, space simulators or you simply like us, you can volunteer and help us. Contact with me if you want to join our Team. Here's what do we need:

-Texture artist
-Animated effect artist
-Another music composer

That's all in February update. Expect more soon and stay tuned!

Well, there was a demo release - But honestly it's outdated and very buggy. THe plot changed since the old demo release so I don't recommend to play. Although if you still want to play it check our our forum here ( and enjoy the demo. Any feedback over the forums would be appreciated as well as some activity over there. Remember that Earth Defense is connected with FreeSpace and FreeSpace 2 plot.

Earth Defence is alive and what we have coming is ten times better than the demo.

Much has happened since the last post or news update.

We've lost and gained team members since February. Mobius has joined as a mission creator, I as a general sound engineer, and (most recently) Daddy Warhol as a music composer. Many of the first members are presently missing for reasons unknown. The plot has undergone rewriting and revision to iron out cliches and make the story more realistic and enjoyable. The DEMO release is no longer an indicator of the mod's quality, as much has improved since then. Expect new ships, new weapons, and new audio.

We're still alive. Earth Defence will come and it will be awesome.
