Hundreds of years after Blue Planet, the cosmic destroyers once again find themselves at war with a resilient race hell bent on destruction.
Shattered Stars is a fan-made epilogue to Blue Planet and the entire FreeSpace saga, built on the very cutting edge of the FreeSpace 2 Open engine, and is set thousands of years into the future of FreeSpace, overlapping with the timeframe of Mortal Engines, a film adapted from the 2001 novel of the same name by Philip Reeve.
Shattered Stars is currently under development and will be a standalone and completely free download.
I just wanted to give a very tiny update. I am working on the assets of the UIMS (Unknown Intellectual Mechanized Species), the enemy faction that appeared in Galaxian 3. While I was gone to start something small, I did get some work done on something that’s going to be freely re-used in the future.
Since I got back I have decided to rule out the Teaser Demo, treating as this never happened, but the download is kept for historical purposes. And I’ve started work on re-working on existing UIMS models people on the Hard Light forums saying I converted them to FSO, as well as starting new ones.
The UIMS fleet - First look
The UIMS Fleet is still a work in progress, aside from the Basestar, Raider, Advanced Raider and Heavy Raider, as well as the planned additions including the Acolyte. The November 2018 posts about such is just a rough look on what they look like before being re-worked. I’ve only almost started the final touch-ups on the modelling but should be finishing them up in the coming days. Then it’s on to texturing, debris, turrets and subsystems!
You remember that craft from the bonus game created specifically for the Sony PlayStation port of Galaxian 3, The Rising of Gourb, and the 1999 video game, Star Ixiom, which is celebrating its 20th anniversary alongside FreeSpace 2. It’s based on the version of the latter game, but with design cues from the former.
This craft, the Danube Class, is entirely original, and is a corvette similar to the Shivans’ Moloch, the Vasudans’ Sobek and the Terrans’ Deimos.
I wonder how these two compare with the Basestar.
More will be coming. Stay tuned!
The demo's release date has been delayed to ensure the fixing of any issues that arise.
