Some more screenshots from our Battlestar Galactica game. Showcasing the Cylon Basestar and the Bolitho.

Posted by Karajorma on Dec 3rd, 2008

Well it's only been a couple of weeks since the last update but plenty has been going on with the game. Unfortunately most of it is not quite ready to show you yet. Fortunately we do have lots of stuff that we can talk about and show off.

First up we have some more shots of the biggest danger to the Colonials. The Cylon Basestar. Although still a work in progress the current model is still menacing enough to be a threat to almost anything we've put it up against so far. In fact it's a little too dangerous at the moment and we're going to have to tone it down so that it's more like the one in the show. One of the main reason we're concentrating on multiplayer at the moment is simply because having several pilots flying the same mission at the same time really helps us spot these problems and get them fixed quickly.

Next up is the Bolitho. The Bolitho is one of our non-canon designs. Starslayer's original concept has been beautifully brought to life by DaBrain. It says something for the sheer quality of their partnership that we've already noticed a couple of BSG mods have "borrowed" the design without bothering to ask us! Well the original is still the best.

Meanwhile our mission design team haven't been idle. Shade added another multiplayer mission to our rapidly increasing list and work is continuing on the singleplayer campaign.

Anyway, stay tuned because hopefully our next update will have some even more impressive things to show you.

It all depends on their credits :P

The greatest form of flattery is imitation.

Not stealing as such, just seeing the cool design and using it without bothering to ask the original creator, in this case StarSlayer. Nothing we want to start a shitstorm over.

You have been an arrogant band of fools, when you were still working on BTRL. How you ill-treated community interests and the aggressiveness on your forums will never be surpassed.
I hope this is not the continuation of bad behaviour and hybris, but finally about the great game BTRL failed to deliver. This looks like you have pulled yourself together though, instead of arsing around you actually have a lot of work going, now.
good luck.

The Diaspora team have little desire to get into a muckraking issue over exactly what went on while we were part of BtRL but let's just say that the way the community was being treated was part of the reason why we left BtRL.
I hope you can see from the way we are attempting to engage with the community and provide updates as often as possible that we're determined not to repeat that mistake.

The community is very important for the project.

Mainly because you're the people who will play the game.
We're not developing the game just for our team. That would be a bit too much effort for those few people.

Diaspora isn't BtRL!
