The Civillian Fleet is Arriving!

Well seeing as i didnt manage to make the Christmas Update period i would firstly like to take this oppurtunity to wish you all a Merry Christmas, though it might be late its better late than never. Secondly i would like to bring you and update which will be spanned over the next couple of weeks.

I have had much spare time lately to dab around in 3ds MAX and i have succesfully managed to get to know the program in some good ways. I have managed to teach myself a small part of Rigigng and Exporting for the models. But now to the update. Some months ago i aquired low poly models of Coxxons Battlestar Galactica ships. They have been sitting on my hard drive for ages and well i had some freetime and as i stated i got to grips with MAX and its been successful.

This is a big update that will span a couple of days/weeks, it dpeneds on how productive i can be over the next week. Today i bring you three renders of three civillian ships which will be included in Battlestar Galactica : At War.

Botanical Cruiser

The Astral Queen

Well what do you think, let us know on the comment section.

There will be more updates like this in the coming days/ weeks. I hope to bring all the Colonial Fleet to you in Render format then present them ingame so you can have a sneek peak. Aswell as a quick look on the new Battlestar Galactica Galactic Conquest map.

Well, I wasn't completely into Battlestar Galatica but i have to say those ships look nice, but how will they be implemented? Fighting, or?

They will be an escort to the Battlestar Galactica. But im not 100% keen on the idea myself so it could possibly change.

They were unarmed in the show, they'd be cannon fodder or eye candy in most games.

Excellent update!

Well not really, they'd be classed as an escort until we had time to code them into events!
