It is the year 3218, jump into the cockpit of some of the most advanced fightercraft seen in any space-shooter; the Feather-Series. From the Highly Maneuverable Feather1, to the Tank-Like Feather2, and to the Ultra-Light Feather4, the Human Race has the most devastating weapons ever seen in battle.
Our alien opponents, the Veslans, have been in space only since the 2500s and have expanded to create an Empire that spans 17 Star Systems. Recently we have begun to send a Colonial Mission to the Epsilon Eridani Star System in the hopes of spreading our colonial reach. Unknown to us, the Veslans had already begun colonizing a planet we had slated for Terra-forming. Synthesis unknowningly bombards the planet with comets to begin the process of reconfiguring the world for Human Habitation. The Veslans living on the planet are vaporized in the repeated comet impacts. The Veslan Government perceives the Human Terraforming method as an act of war and genocide. But because of superior human technology, they are immediately beaten in the first battle.
Two years pass, and the Veslans learn from their mistakes and return to Epsilon Eridani to remove the human presence once and for all. The struggle for Epsilon Eridani lasts another 3 years before the Veslans to finally eject Synthesis from the Star-System, demoralizing and badly humiliating the colonial corporation.
It isn't until they are beaten that Synthesis alerts the Solar Government of the Conflict 14 light-years away, the Solar Government Navy is immediately mobilized to intercept the Veslan Fleet at Saturn. The Veslan Super-Carrier "Ganeluza" is no-where to be seen however and is spotted an hour later behind SGN lines, launching raids in the Astroid Field, the Shipyards at Mars, and finally at Earth. It is approaching evening at Caen, France and the SGN/SSF Joint Garrison is ordered to scramble to intercept the Ganeluza and her escorts.

Gotta love the Holidays!

Or not... We were planning on getting our demo released a month ago, unfortunately, just as the October ended and November rolled around, development came to a virtual stop. I utterly failed to anticipate just how much the holiday and midterm exam season would bring our team to a halt, but it did. We've seen several draft missions come to the SVN and we've even added new Mission Designers to the staff, however inspiration has been slow coming as much as the new content. In short, I apologize for getting anyone's hopes up.

However, since the holidays have finally ended, we've picked right back up where we left off. New Models are again in the works and I've been cracking the whip to bring the mission designers back on task.

As far as eye-candy is concerned, there isn't too much new. Beyond a redesigned Feather2 which has been in the works for a while now, the Medelus class cruiser is also finished along with a few new civilian space-craft.

AL-551 Astroliner

Feather2 Remodel

The Feather2 Remodel was pretty well needed as it turns out. The new Feather1 looked so good, and the old Feather2 looks really outdated next to it, so the Feather2 Remodel was undertaken by Thaeris in his first major attempt at creating spacecraft model for the game and it came out excellently. I think he deserves a round of applause really!

Well, that's that. Hopefully we will have a lot more to show off in the coming months!

thats because it is Freespace 2. Our Hud is in the process of being redesigned, but for now, the FS2 hud will do.

The engine is open-source. Visit Hard Light Productions or google 'FreeSpace SCP.' SAFSO is hardly the first to use it.

Not really. The source code for the engine has been out since forever, and as long as it is for non profit, you can do it whatever you've felt like doing.

Looks quite promising. I feel the cockpit design in the latest video doesn't match the outward ship design from your images regarding look and feel, especially colours. Tracking :)

That's actually kinda the idea. We haven't produced any of our own skyboxes yet, but for the missions taking place out of Sol, we'll be following a lot of cues from Homeworld, at least stylistically. If you ever played the PDS mod for HW2, that should give you an idea for how we plan to have the action play out.
