Good luck guys, looking great already!
Well he clearly stated "only text was added" with the previous screenshot, that clearly isn't the fact as you admit now. Furthermore, my question about the concepts around the center "screenshot" where never answered. Are these made for this project?
Yes thats really hard, why do you think most mods are MP?
Well thats what I've done for Infinity for 4 years now, I've never asked for votes on moddb, yet Infinity won a couple of MOTY awards. ;)
I have nothing against extra newsposts, hell I agree with the fact that it might be handy to make a newpost right now during the MOTY awards, but making it the topic of the news is just not done imo. Imagine every project on this website starting a newspost just to ask for a votes.
If your mod is good and the news about your mod is good, people will vote anyway without having to ask for it.
If you just make a newspost to be able to ask for votes, something is wrong! But thats just me being jealous, right?! ;)
Nice video indeed! :)
good luck to you guys, this is a big step!
Amen to that!
So all the time we spend updating our profile, writing newspost, uploading images and videos and getting our fan informed is not appreciated because the url of the website says 'mod'?
If thats how people think, Im going to stop wasting my time on this, because I DO spend a lot of time on it. I hope you are an exception!
if thats so, why do they have an indie-game section?
Reminds me a bit of killzone2,I like that! great style, amazing media.
You guys should hype it a bit more, this mod hardly gets attention.
It's not a texture, and theres no water.
they didn't invent those concepts either
It's not like AOE invented the setting :P
Looks very good! What makes it different from CSS?
Moddb is doing great, way to go! :)
I played it and I like it! I dont think Im going to buy it... or maybe I will.
It was good but not Uber.
Thx moddb crew! :D
The game will have more than 100 billion planets, we are going to do everything we can to make every planet exciting to visit and explore.
You will be able to find citys, forests, primitive alien life forms, volumetric clouds, weather and storm effects,...
An early test for example shows its possible to generate hundrets of trees:
This screenshot is very old and was only a test, its nothing compaired of what the final version of Infinity will like like!
Your comments, suggestions and questions are always welcome!
Looks like a great start, good luck! :)
The game is called Infinity: The quest for earth, when we say 'Infinity engine' we are referring to the 'engine of the game Infinity'.
The engine will probably get a real name after some time.
The size of the planet is possible in real-life and everything is scaled as realistic as possible.
Keep in mind those things are still WIP and we still have to work atleast 2 years on Infinity.
With all respect but maybe you released the demo a little to fast. Ok I know its only a demo, but its still not a good idea to release a mod with only one map. Its a shame because the work you people have done is great and it has good gameplay, but playing the same map over and over again gets booring after some time. A lot of gamers who played Dystopia got bored and a lot of those players are not going to play Dystopia anymor. Releasing a demo and releasing the full-version months later doesnt have the same effect as only releasing a finished version with all the features and 10-15maps. Its a shame, but thats how gamers are.
I have to be honest and tell you that I was realy exited about Dystopia and I loved it for a couple of days, but now im not excited anymore and I dont know if Im going to download the full-version when its released. If you released it with 5-10 maps I would probably still play it.
I cant wait to see the first media ;)
Wait till your stuff is finished, with 3 days of work its to early to release anything.
It gives a bad impression.. trust me ;)
so... they are back?
If you play very long you will be able to own a lot of ships and they can be controlled by NPC you hire. You can order them to do a lot of things for you like trading, exploring,...
When you decide to start a war you can send all your ships to the 'battlefield' to start a big war. You need a lot of time, money and skills to do something like this but it will be possible if you really want.
I cant say anything about possible vehicles yet.
In space you will be able to go faster than light.
The most original looking HL2 mod so far! MOTY!
Remember its a next-gen game ;) those requirments will be standard in 2 years.
Im only a texture artist for Infinity ;) , 99% has been made by Flavien Brebion(aka InfinityAdmin).
The Infinity team has 4 members atm, but we are always looking for new talented artists.
Trust me, Infinity will stay alive ;) the people who work on infinity are mature and very professional.
The features are all posten on the fininity site: Fl-tw.com
If you have a lot of question you can always join or community forum ;)
Yes infinity has a plot, but only the basic plot line has been released:
We are not planning to add player models to Infinity, walking in your ship and on planets will probably not be possible. Walking on a planet wouldnt be fun, the size of planets are be realistic so it would take hours to go from mountain to mounten, vehicles are faster and more fun.
google earth rip? Every mod or game is ripped if you say that. :P
Trust me >google earth is nothing compaired to Infinity.
Screenshots of ships, and other stuff will be released when they are ready. Making a game like this is a lot of work, first we want to finish the terrain engine. We still have to work atleast 2 years on infinity so please be patient.
Like every other MMORPG Infinity will need a good server. Thx for your vote, it would be great if we get an award!
Landing on more than 100 billion planets in real-time(!) is the most important feature of Infinity.
The new screenshots you see in the gallery are from a random place on a random planet.
atm Im making texture packs for almost every type of planet you can imagine
Yes Elite has a lot of influenced on Infinity, and all the cool features like landing on planets in real-time and open ended gameplay will be in Infinity to.
You can always ask questions on the Infinity forums, almoste every day Infinityadmin posts new info and screenshots in the developent journal on the forums.
The combat in Infinity will be unique, Infinity uses newtonian physics so fast combat like in freelancer will be difficult to do. I think its will be something between freelancer and simulation.
what about standalone games? Can they win a 'mod' award?
Sorry, I dont have permission to release anything.
99'% of all this is made by one person; Flavien Brebion. Its amazing what he can do and how fast he works.
Recently some other talented people joined him to form a small team, trust me you aint seen nothing yet!
If one team can to this, its the Infinity team!
Its possible, we use a lot of smart techniques(LOD's for example), it looks 'havy' but it isnt. ;)
Minimum system requirements:
CPU speed: Intel Pentium IV 2 Ghz or AMD Athlon 1500+ or equivalent
RAM size: 512 MB
Video card: a graphics card supporting pixel shader 2.0 (ATI Radeon 9500+, NVidia Geforce FX+)
Disk space: at least 2 GB
Internet connection: 56k modem
Operating system: Windows 2000 or later
*These minimum requirements are only estimated and will probably change to something
more accurate as the development progresses.
Infinity is a next-gen game and will be in development for at least 2 extra years.
looks good! :)
great work, looks pro!
No, you can do whatever you want.
Quote from the 'about' section:
Infinity is like a modern mmo version of Elite.
Why do you think its exaclty like EVE-online?
They only way you can compaire them is because they are both MMO space games, but that would be the same as compairing Hald-Life and Doom.
Its not mod, its a standalone game.
Great work as always!
Its still one of the best hl mods.:D Its a shame HL2 was on the way when they released, otherwise they would have got a lot of attention!
We need more WW1 games!
yes thx and good work, but for the good of community you should have released some new maps faster.
I love this!
First free promo code for the iOS version, These can only be used once, so be quick! ;)
Looks like this is for the US only, worth mentioning on an international website imo!
I don't know, you should contact the moddb crew for problems related to the website.
I love the dinosaur animations and sounds!
cool new skybox
Congrats on the release!
So, was it worth it, the lightmapping? Ive played with it a little myself but the results where not what I was hoping for.
looking very good, nice artstyle!
I've never seen a pregnant Alvergast, so I can't tell ;)
looking great, very nice artstyle!
Yes, we are using the latest Unity version.
Really interesting art-style you guys are going for. Good luck!!!
some very interesting concept art, original!
a lot better!!!
I love it!
You know, Valve is an indie developer too they sell at full price too sometimes ;D same for ID-software until they joined Bethesda.
Interesting game concept!
How did you get nominated if the voting just started?
looks really great for Unity! :D
Fantastic, finally a good looking WW1 shooter! Great graphics on Unity too! :D *tracking*
Oh me too! :O
I visit Skyscrapercity.com almost every day! I was never into architecture but somehow its fascinating to see those big projects grow, especially in Dubai and New York!
If you ever do a new map for Off-Limits and need some inspiration for a new iconic building, you should have a look at the Ryugyong Hotel from North Korea ;) I'm sure it would fit the Off-Limits universe and had a 'post-apocalyptic' look for decades, until they started construction again in 2008.
Great, reminds me of the Freedom Tower construction!
Looks very good!
My suggestion for the next release: "Camulos" Celtic god of war.
I clearly see the influence from Mirror's Edge, and thats nto a bad thing! :D It reminds me of some of the ME pictures I've seen on your blog, amazing work!
the weapon is from the leaked HL2 beta right?
Be carefull saying that, before you know it they contact your project leader!
I think it looks a lot better ingame than in the renders!
Nice pose! I hope to see them navigate like that in the eventual game too (jumping on objects,...)
Looking great, nice lighting and depth of field effect. In what way will depth of field be used in the gameplay?
One of my favorite concepts so far for this game. Really good!
looking great as always!
looks great, maybe add some phong shading to the car?
Ive just downloaded from moddb, didn't get any options or registration forms before the download started. (mac version)
Also special because it works on Mac too.
So Ive downloaded this version, it says I can only use it for 30 days for free :s
It's the same ship ;)
what valve has given us in ""firts release" is not what we would expect from other companies
Thats more than 7000 people you are talking about...
everyone has its own opinion, and if people didnt have something to complain about they wouldnt!
I just had to quote your loveletter on our forum :D
oh and its been less than a month since our previous dev update ;)
reminds me of stalker and thats not a bad thing :)
Yes they will
Why not ask them to pay for it next time?
The real point is, you post news or you don't...
anyway; nice characters, a shame I can't see the rest!
high quality version: Fl-tw.com
They are not going to let you make this game, but good luck 'playing with the odds' :p
looks very realistic!
looks cool :)
great video on that german website, but why are those asteroids white? :s
so now moddb gets the screenshots before the official website?
Looks good as always :)
oh boy, I remember this screenshot, I loved it. It still looks great even if its an old screenshot.
I love this setting.
One of my favo screens, the flora looks so realistic!
the thumbnails are not linked to an image
and see how many play them...
So you are going to start one next year, or it will be done next year?
The source engine is getting a little old so starting a mod in 2009 is a bit late considering it takes years to complete it.
It showed an indie logo next to the newspost instead of a hl2 logo. :)
So why are you guys listed as a standalone game?
Yes, it is :)
no that not a 'huge' ship.
Infinity won't have planet destroyers
Hehe Asskicked, nice one! ;)
It looks nice as always, but I see some some influence from Japanese art-style(manga) in some of the concepts. Personally I would stick to Western designs.
FRAPS is to blame for the slowdowns ;)
Sounds very good!
They got me hyped again :D
Looks a lot like this:
SinKing, all I can say is; thank you for your honest opinion. Personaly I like the end result a lot altought I agree that it could use some work. It's hard to say if this ship will make it in the final game(as with every other ship) but always keep in mind that those renders never represend what it will look like in the final game, its all WIP ;)
I want to add that contributors get constant feedback from Koshime and the other devs, I think Koshime even helped texturing this one.
Nice screenshots Koshime :)
Looks very good
original, nice skin!
Looks good, nice rocks
Ive seen this news post before, exactly the same screenshots!
The first time it doesn't matter what username and pass you use, just remember to use the same one next time ;)
hmm... wait a sec ive seen that banner before!
what about copyright guys?
I never had lag while playing this mod.
Amazing screenshots, cant recognise anything from hl2(textures, props,...)
For rain :P
Those are made by the Infinity concept artist Koshime.
looks very good for HL engine!
For a moment I hoped this was a WW1 mod but this is nice anyway!
A Linux port might come later after release, if there are enough requests. A Macintosh port is unlikely.
