Angels Fall First: Planetstorm is an objective-based assault game fought both in space and on the ground. Featuring totally original art and completely new game types, we take you from flying gigantic capital ships, piloting fighters, and manning turrets to the traditional vehicular and infantry combat, both planet-side and inside the starships themselves. At your command are more than two dozen ships and vehicles, including all original weaponry, 3 maps with full bot support, two custom characters, with more on the way. This is a <b>total</b> conversion mod in the fullest sense of the word. Welcome to Planetstorm.

More weapons, props, and vehicles. A working HUD, objective systems, ship boarding, etc. Projectile, Muzzlefire, and Sound FX. Things are actually fun ingame now. :) A victory in itself. So here's the update as we gear up for Phase 2 of MSU.

So here's the update as we gear up for Phase 2 of MSU. The Ground map Errah is more or less finished and playable. (Screenshots courtesy of ikarus, SkyWay, and Strangelet):

Reminds a little of Homeworld 2, concerning lighting and fog volumes. I think that's kind of what you are looking for and I like this style.

I'm much impressed with your concept art and wonder: Is it the same Peter Milligan, who draws for you, who worked on various films and for Marvel? You really can't paint much better with PS than what he shows.

I think the crosshairs are obstructing the view. Since they are all round, you can't really tell what's radar, crosshair, or status from far. Change shapes, or at least get rid of the central crosshair and make it appear only when you're aiming.

This HUD is by far a mockup at the moment. It will get smaller and nicer as we move forward

Ah no. As far as I know, it's a different Pete Milligan that we have from the Marvel dude. :P

And to clarify it is not a 'mockup' (as that would imply being non-functional). It IS functional, though yes, mostly temporary for now. Screen scaling hasn't yet been accounted for.

Some of the core members of the team have modded Homeworld.

Crosshairs are onscreen in all of those shots because you always have a weapon under your control. The inner circle of the two appears when your camera is within the turret's field of view. Stock UT3 behaviour :)

Id Love to see this stuff in action, maybe a video of some sort guys? the objectives muzzle flash and how the HUD changes whilst ingame would be nice to see :) IE; when you are shot the lifebar going down for example, whats next? custom movement animations?

Oh my... I... This is exceptional stuff guys. Aside from the HUD stuff that's already been mentioned and the ridiculously small weapon sizes (which I hope isn't the case in game?)... this is just awesome.
