"Hi fans of FirstStrike! We are coming up to a year old on this conversion now and Id like to write a little about my time here as well as some of the new and olders faces on the team. It has been quite a journey, for someone like me who did not have the feintest idea about what goes into a mod let alone a conversion its been a steep learning curve. I'd like to thank Aquila for giving me the chance here and for that I'm extremely grateful.

Scope and Lambda Endor Bunker

Basically Ive just been the "glue" here holding elements together (including some team members as they have me) and helping out with the day to day, recruitment, website and background duties on the mod. I am creating the odd model here and there (although pretty dreadful), currently working on the HUD design with MUAHAHAHA and general lore occasionally.

It has had it's ups and downs but mostly the ups have outweighed the downs. Seeing what some of the guys produce on a day to day basis is breathtaking, the talent shines and WILL shine through for a very polished and meticulously detailed and playable end product. A lot has transpired in a year and with the addition of some very skilled and talented newer members this mod has cause for real longetivity.

Shield Generator Shield Generator

We are at a position now were we are very soon to go into a testing stage. This is due to the relentless talents of all the team and their persuit to bring you, the fans, your ultimate SW experience. I'm proud to be a member of the FS Team and hopefully will be for another year.

Landing Pad Lambda Interior

For your perusal are some Work In Progress screenshots of Endor. PLEASE note the trees are by no way finished (I can hear Lord Bandu sighing)."

these were actually made in BF2, when we start porting then the colours and new shaders available in BF2142 will dramtically enhance the look and feel.
Starting on that tonite as the game is out now.

Bf2142 is the best incarnation of a battlefield game since BF1942 actually.

Gameplay Graphics, Loading times, Stability, optimisation. Kicks Bf2's ***
