Post news Report RSS First In-Game Shots Of The Battlestar Theseus

It's been a long time since our last update but we haven't been sleeping and we're proud to show off the first in-game shots of Battlestar you'll be making your home in the game's first release.

Posted by on

Those of you who have been following Diaspora a while may remember the earlier shots of the Sobek-Class Battlestar we posted earlier. Well the Diaspora team are proud to announce that we've finally got the ship textured and working in-game.

In our first release you will be a pilot on board the Battlestar Theseus, a Sobek class, so this is a very important step forward for our game.

It also makes it easier to take screenshots as we've always had to hide the ugly untextured placeholder model. Now we can finally show our capital ships going toe to toe.

In addition to work from our art department, we're also holding our second round of voice auditions. If you'd like to hear your voice in our game you should check out this thread for details on how you can help us.

Looking great there - nice to see some progress on this. My only crit would be that the specular on the ship is a bit clean imo. It looks more like plastic/composite than it does metal. Otherwise, I love it.

Well I'm not going to get into a discussion on the spec maps with you (since they're just right and I'm not changing them) or how a space carrier material should look like, but I will say to wait for the trailers to make the final judgements. It's really hard to gauge this from static shots as they can't ever do the ship justice completely.
