Just a normal high school nerd/geek, learning to program and make games. Slowly.
Holy bejesus guys, you really were busy! This is awesome. Only one question;
When can we download it?
Even I can confidently say the next update will be a HUGE one for Blockade Runner. It will be hard for the Dev's to ever pass the sheer AMOUNT of new stuff.
Glad to hear you like it!
Its cool to see them paying so much attention to this tool, as it will be a crucial component of this game.
The news post I just posted shows off a really cool feature, so watch for that one
I believe the engine supports both voxels(cubes) and 3d models. Also, using voxels is simply a different method of modeling- imagine lots and lots of really small cubes. You get more detail at the cost of performance
There are two news posts coming out soon, so watch for those!
The 2nd will follow the 1st fairly closely, so double check the news page to be sure
W28 is out folks! You can expect the next news post to appear soon!
Hey guys there are about 8 new screenshots over in the Image section. Also, here is some clarification on the payment system;
Also, there will be another post today. If you didn't see 19, check the news section, you will not be disappointed.
What are Blockade Runner's requirements?
Currently you require a PC with a Shader 2.0 videocard, XNA 3.1, Dot NET 3.5, and DirectX 9.0c
You will also probably need at least 1gb of ram. Might run with 512mb. Not sure.
New update post soon. As in today.
Who designed the new menu and GUI? It looks really good. Reminds of Shattered Horizon (which is good)
Phew. I was worried about all of you for a moment
I believe you float above it and press space. Be careful- it's uber responsive
This test was supervised by a responsible safety associate. Right?
You guys are geniuses :)
Can't wait for blockade runner!
(not to mention you do a great job!)
Awesome! I have been hoping for a space sim like this, with the highly detailed ship- but this, this is just too awesome!
you forgot the liquid physics. Go on, do it and let your imagination go crazy like you can in minecraft. The results will be satisfying.
Finally! I am so glad to hear you guys did this! Great job, no, incredible job! Can't wait for this weekend so I play it! I am way too excited about this...
Any updates on progress on the new rendering system?
Holy crap. This is incredible, everything i wanted in a space sim and more! i agree, tech demo as sign of faith this is still alive. I would lose hours to it. good luck, hope you finish it.
I'm begging you.
This mod looks absolutely incredible. I think it has some of the best mapping work i have ever seen, almost lookslike it was done by valve itself. Good luck, i will be following this mod!
Redownloading 2142 from EA download manager...what a piece of slow crap. Cant wait to play the mod though, looks epic! Sandcrawler FTW!
If you see this charging towards you(at a snail pace) you are pretty much screwed. I wish my BF2142 didnt break :(
You, mr UNSC admiral, have been royally screwed by the might of the covenant! BURN!!!
