Post news RSS Freeworlds: Tides of War - Ship Teaser

We showed you some amazing things with the Freelancer engine thanks to W0dk4, now I wanted to take this opportunity to show you some of our ship models in action!

Posted by on

Over the past few weeks you've seen that the Freelancer engine still has a few years of life in her with the new graphic updates we hope to bring to the game with DX9. W0dk4 is still very much busy pushing the limits of the engine and is at the moment working on normal maps and possible shadow mapping. This is no easy process, particularly without the source code of Freelancer. FriendlyFire recently took a screenshot showing the new effects in action in a battle!

ISD and CR90 Corvette

So, to give W0dk4 a break, I thought I'd show you some of our finished ship models, with fully funtioning effects, viewable interior cockpits, animated wings and other good things you might notice. Before you view the video, I also must thank the First Strike Development Team and the X-Wing Alliance Upgrade Project for use of their models, some of which you'll see in this video.

I hope you enjoy this small ship teaser and stay tuned for updates!

Looks great. I love that comment about the TIE fighter being the most abundant thing in the galaxy after hydrogen and stupidity xD

Ya, I thought it was pretty good as well. The info scrolling through the videos came from our infocard team; Currican and Shadow
