Matt shows some of his latest work on the 3D assets for Flagship.

Posted by on

Hey all, Matt here. I've been pretty quiet recently but in case you don’t know who I am, I'm the co creator of Flagship and will be handling all the 3D assets and music. Despite my prized Macbook Pro crapping out on me (due to this issue) I’m still making progress! I’m currently working on my girlfriend’s Spanish laptop which, although okay for watching movies and browsing the web, hasn't got as much oomph as mine had. But on the flip-side I get to annoy Brad with upside down question marks in my emails.

My main focus recently has been a total revamp of the bridge. We've stuck with the same basic design that you've seen in the pre-alpha footage, but there is much more detail and everything is more solid looking. Details like pipes and junction boxes are taken from real world submarines interiors, while the layout is clearly inspired from science fiction old and new. I've kept it fairly open and left lots of room to walk around, as this will be the place that you'll spend most (if not all) of your time. Consoles and chairs have also had a makeover. We’re still working on the textures, but in the meantime see some renderings in Blender below:

We've also been revamping the turrets that form the main weapon systems of your ship. Below are some animated renderings of the missile, laser, and torpedo turret. They need a little extra work but we’re really happy with how they’re coming along.

Last but not least, here is a piece of concept art of the bridge did last month. After seeing it, Brad grumbled something about rethinking how the ambient lighting on the bridge works. I think that means he liked it.

All in all, we're making good progress with the game so far. Brad is continuing to improve simulation and is currently working on fighter AI, which from what I've seen so far is looking awesome!

Until next time, take care, and adios!

I am wanting this one so bad. I hope it get's made into multiplayer......if so this is the game that Eve will not want on the market. If you can pilot your ship, leave your ship, and have multi ship battles you have a complete experience. I want to be on the top of the list for beta testers........or even Alpha for this......
