This is what the Acheron and its dropship looks like in game. Here's a short video clip of part of a cut scene as Liam and Natty depart for the planet's surface.
Prologue Cut Scene 005a

I'll get back to the story next week. Thanks for your patience during this part of the game's development stage.

Top one looks like Babylon 5 and Spaceball One had a lovechild
The second one like the bastard child of Firefly and the dropship from Aliens
This is not a bad thing :) very nice indeed
Have you been collaborating with Datachasers ?
They have some nice spacecraft going on right now too.

All of my favorite sci-fi's!!!

I talk to Terri from Datachasers from time to time on steam but I've been pretty busy lately and haven't been on much.

So if they're going planetside, that means this is after the forward section was damaged, bringing them out of 'fold space', and then jettisoned ? Or is the game that much different from the comic ?

As you can see the original model had the bridge amidships and this model has it up front. I like the idea of having centrifugal artificial gravity as opposed to "magic" gravity you see in so many sci-fi's. So the damaged sections are now going to be that lower part of the ship below the bridge decks.

If you remember, Signos created the whole fire emergency scenario and in the story the Acheron is currently using its main guns, that were located in the damaged section, to drill into the planet's surface. So there was no real damage and the crew took Signos's word for it thinking he was reliable.

As a side note, I could still use the original ship in the game but I saw that model in a sci-fi movie awhile back. I don't remember the name of the movie but I remember it was kind of B rate cheesy so I decided to go this route instead.

So....no 'reverse polarization of the graviton emitters' ?
I can hear hundreds of Sci-fi writers crying out in pain and fear...

Have to do some catching up, but I like the ship designs. Glad to see you still at it!

Good looking designs. The dropship actually looks functional - I'm not used to that with sci-fi.

I liked the Prologue 0!

I liked prologue zero, but as a note you might want to set the defocus per foot level quite a ways down, if possible. Not that much atmosphere to fuzz things up, even in medium low orbit. Check ISS footage. Detail is scary clear from much further away. Light effects, especially blinding and darkening, are way ramped up. Dark is DARK unless you're getting scatter from someplace somewhat in the sun and reflective nearby (like a suit, fer instance). Just geeking out here....

Great advice. I'll check my camera settings and reduce the directional light's ambient light.

Could be a nearby nebula scattering light around like they love to do...maybe it's part of the 'Crease' ?

Or maybe those planetside storms are so intense they throw a little atmosphere higher than you'd expect ?

Author is building a video game based on the comic. Taking up all the time they have to spare on the comic itself.

Hey Dizz, is there somewhere we can see what else you're working on? If no updates in the forecast for this, where can we see your current projects to tide us over?

I started a discord channel and posted screen shots. I'll find someone who can do the admin for it because I don't know much about discord admin.

Dead? My friend, you should try following 'White Noise' which
occasionally updates like once per year.

I've been there since day 1, 14 years ago? but still refresh
intermittantly, and get a nice suprise. :)
