We the people of the Earth called the Tauri have risen up and taken our rightful place among the stars.
We were once thought to be destined to become the great fifth race in the next thousand years or so.
time would have it we didn't have over five years of peace, before fate took over. The great interstellar
War has raged for over a century now. Billions of life forms wiped from existence.
We are now the last line
of defense for all Life forms in the known universe.
We have learned much from all corners of our
reach. We have meet hundreds of races ,
some of which are our allies and friends. Others we have met
have not been so hospitable and have banded with our foes.
The Jaffa Nation has risen from the ashes of what once was the Gouald empire. There rise has been
turbulent to say the least. There are rumors of internal strife and talk of renegade Gouald still with in
there ranks. They are a people that for the moment we consider allies, but as with any alliance it can fail.
There fleets are great and number in the hundreds if not thousands! Our intelligence indicates
there fleets
are comprised of Hataks, as well as Anubis class ships. The Anubis class is of particular
concern as they
are a mighty warship capable of attacking ships, planets, and star base's with ease.
One of the most powerful enemies of life itself the Wraith now have the means of interstellar
hyperspace. There initial invasion forces were massive and the battles took many ships and
people from both sides. The wraith had defeated the ancients, however they were not prepared
for humanities perseverance and determination to defend life and live. We now know that they have
access to a number of zpm's and are using them. We fear that they have built yet another cloning
facility somewhere in the milky way and Pegasus galaxies. We have also detected several massive
wraith vessels on approach from Pegasus, our intelligence suggests that they are powered by zero point modules.
We are preparing our defenses and making plans as best we can.
When we were at our weakest moment another enemy emerged before us the Lucian Alliance. They
took advantage of our forces being spread so thin among the stars and have taken many bases
and systems. They are a ruthless people that only seek to conquer , destroy.
They massacre anyone or anything that gets in there way!
The Asurans once thought to be totally destroyed have reemerged from hiding. We are on a routine
patrol mission when we stumbled upon them. We had discovered a massive planet the size of Jupiter
swarming with nanite life. The Asurans once thought to be entirely wiped from existence
are now back with a Vengeance. They are hell bent on destroying all of carbon based life. There single goal and
directive is to destroy anything and everything the Ancients had created. They have managed to take several
worlds and destroy and ravaged countless others. We are engaged in diplomatic discussions
other races to help
coordinate a counter assault. Our intel suggests that they have
built a Lantian
class city ship as well as the Antues class which is capable of destroying our star bases .

It has been some time since we had last encountered the rogue Asgard of the Pegasus.
But we knew it to be only a matter of time. With the Wraith busy fighting us on many fronts the Asgard attacked.
There initial invasion fleets were massive with every major class of Asgard vessel. We had hoped that
we may be able to form a alliance with them. However they are different breed of Asgard,
they do not seek peace, knowledge and friendship. Instead they seek to only better there genetic code
at any
means necessary. We were ill prepared for the opening salvos that started the war with them.
We did
manage to destroy a large number of there fleets. However they were able to form a strategic
beachhead and take several worlds.

Stargate Invasion Progress Report


Below is an update on our progress towards Pre Alpha release.


We have started updating the shields for some of the Asuran faction, they will now be partially conformal for ships and in the Atlantis style for the Envoy and any other related models.

Final Texture Preparations for Production

Much of my free time over the past two weeks was spent improving and streamlining our internal texturing tools so that we can create textures quicker with higher quality results.

I've converted (height to normal) about 135 of our detail stamps for the Asurans and boosted the normal map strength of all these tools. This will make the various details you see on the ships more visible giving them a more pronounced small detail look from greater viewing distances. Below is an example of one such stamp applied to a test cube in Designer.

Detail Stamp Tool in SD

In addition I have reinterpreted the fantastic Asuran material Ace Fighter created in Substance Painter to a version that is based in Substance Designer. This has allowed me to make the material into a filter so that we can stamp details and get an immediate preview with full materials placed according to their color ID. Such functionality is invaluable since it allows us to design on the fly, seeing the final look without the need to export and re-import maps. In the image above you can also see the material being applied to one of our custom made Aurora detail stamps further extending our ability to design details with the final look displayed in real time.

Since I started working on SGI a while back my goal has been to come up with a process that will let us, and also potential future members, create a set of ship textures in 2 - 4 hours instead of days or weeks. With the conversion of the Asuran Material and Asuran detail stamps this pipeline is finally approaching completion.

Pre Alpha Link Queue

There are now over 20 people in the Pre Alpha Queue. While this means that we won't initially be sending out the link to anyone who requests it after today, you are still welcome to send us such requests. If all goes well we will extend the number of people who can have access to the Google Drive sync and your position in the additional queue will be reserved.

Release Date

The release will probably be sometime during April, possibly at the end of the time frame (March-April) we gave in our release announcement. This is not fixed though and if we find that we're making good progress with the shields, hard points and textures we will update the release to be sooner.
