A Little Peek At The New ToS Warring Suns

Post by David Heath »

Hi Guys

Here is an example of the new graphics being worked on by Vicious Byte. The colors and the interface are being worked on still so this is not final but we are getting closer. Please let us know what you think.

Was it just imagination
Stringing us along?
More things than are dreamed about
Unseen and unexplained

I should mention that the maps look better without the hex overlay. Steffan is doing a great job.

Right !

I'm pretty confident that the new maps are adding
a lot to the game. Small drawback is that the editor
is going to be overhauled to meet the new specs
making it imossible for a winter WS release.

Expect to see the game available for christmas.

Looks good! I especially like the 3D effiect of the hills and landscape.

Will we be seeing more detail in terms of interaction with the map i.e. scorch marks from explosions, titan's limbs left lying on the ground etc. I think it would be a nice touch!

looks good, i personaly will use hex overlay, makes controlling the **** things easier...and i like the new mech looks, still hoping for more variation on looks, but that'll prolly be there later on.

Hey, I think the extreme 3D angle looks awesome. If you don't want to use that one, I definitely vote for 3D with more angle.

I'm getting very excited to see more of it. I wish I could be more active in helping.
