In Ensign-1 you play the role of a space fighter pilot returning from a deep space colonization mission. On arrival back to our own solar system, you find Earth has been colonized by a hostile alien force. It's now up to you, with the help of your mothership, the Ensign-1, to take it back Ensign-1 allows allows for complete freedom in approaching objectives. You can fight from the safety of your spacecraft, or land and exit to explore space stations and carriers on foot. You can commandeer any spacecraft in the game, no matter how big or how small. Defend an asteroid base, or take the fight to the enemy with a huge mothership, friends manning turrets, it's your choice. The game also features a multiplayer mode where players can explore a randomly generated galaxy, either fighting co-operatively to clean out enemy fighters, or battling each other for supremacy.

I don't know... Have you considered using more shadows to conceal the texture quality?

It's not like the textures are bad, they might not be the best (If you compare them to other stuff) but they are still good. I like how the bump maps are coming along.

Well the bump is coming along (Though I can't see why any of the detailing in this shot need normal maps over bump maps), but because these are hard surface metal objects, get the bump off of them!

The metal grates or the square metal blocks on the roof do not need ANY bump besides for fine detailing, and it just ends up making every model look like a puffy marshmellow. It has the clay look of doom 3 is you will.

The other jarring thing to start thinking about is how intense the spec is on some metals but not others, it really makes it look odd. I'll assume you do not have ambient occlusion in the engine yet, but is it planned?

(I don't mean to come off as a prick sorry if I do)

What it could do with is some ambient occlusion, it would give objects the depth they need.

Is there a way to change weapons? Out of ship, cuz I've seen two different weapons, and, when will the level editor be open?
