It's been a year since the release of Wings of Dawn already? Time sure flies when you are having fun modding! Now the improvements that have been made in a year time are too numerous to list, and pictures usually tend to say more then words. Especially when they are moving pictures!

Therefore, have a look at this video:

Showcasing recent cutting edge features made by the Freespace source code project (Like tube lighting on beams, thruster heat distortion, the particle trail script, soft particles etc.) Along with the latest addition to the CSA. The CSA Ascension, cutting its way through all that dare oppose it with *lots* of beams.

Aswell as a Patch that improves and fixes some of the models

This is the full release for Wings of Dawn. Please note you need FreeSpace 2 Open 3.6.12 and the 3.6.12 MediaVPs to run the campaign. This is a mod, not...

Your title cover (download) is a little off, maybe a screenshot or something would be more appropriate

Define 'a little off'
Vague comments like these don't tell me a lot.

Maybe he meant that the title cover does not match the actual game screens, like it is too colorful when matched with the actual game somber tones. I guess I have to agree with him, it is to bright with contrasts with the darkeness of the screens.

What he means to say is probably the inclusion of characters drawn in the manner most 'anime' characters are, which seems like an utmost peculiar choice for a game such as this for one particular reason, the original art style of the freespace game doesn't seem to accommodate such genres that easily, so he possibly may have been surprised by it.
