It's an efficient little planet-killer, the critics say!

A new reactor is in the works! This mod has already gone through a couple.
Here was our first one. From the Morrowind days.

Final Fantasy VII: Mako Dawn, Mako Dusk

It was primitive. Hehe. Our second attempt was a bit better...

Final Fantasy VII: Mako Dawn, Mako Dusk

Not bad. But inadequate for the LOD we want to achieve.
We recently made contact with a modeler who has already built a truly amazing Midgar.
Take a look. :)

Killerx20 is our Midgar expert, now. Haha. He also shares our ambition of making an Oblivion Midgar. I'm in the process of adapting his meshes for the mod. I'm working on his reactors right now. With the new textures, they look excellent. Here's how they appear in Oblivion.

We've come a long way. :)
Ultimately, we hope to make the definitive Midgar recreation. Progress is still slow, though. With our current team, we can't expect a release in the near future. Its been a mostly solo effort. Anyone who wants to see Midgar is encouraged to participate. We'll continue grinding along. ;)

Can't wait to see Midgar populated in Oblivion. That model(s) looks absolutely amazing!

Holy, that mako reactor and midgar looks really awesome to me, the shinra logos are a little blurry but that is nothing important, I'd like to see whole midgar with the geometry of houses, and trains...really awesome.

Keep the good work n-n

Haha, wow...the thought of this is almost enough to make me cry. The possibilities that rest within this idea are endless, and for any hardcore Final Fantasy VII fans out there, to experience Midgar from the first-person would be simply shocking. Keep up the good work! :]
