MOTY: New Engine Effects and Explosions! Freelancer Mod News
Posted by Sushi on 2010/12/4 10:12:58 (3483 reads) News by the same author

Before I dive into this article, I wanted to thank all our fans and followers for voting us into the top 100 upcoming mods of the year. Without your continued support and appreciation, we wouldn't be where we are today. Hopefully, if you like what you have seen in the last year, you'll take the time to vote for us again in the upcoming mod of the year section.

Now, to show you some awesome eye candy! I wanted to showcase the work of our lead effect designer, FriendlyFire. He has been toiling away for the past several months improving all effects of the game and adding many new ones of his own. The first video I will show illustrates the new engine glow effects he's painstakingly crafted. Each ship requires several hours of work to get the effect just right. Fortunately, FriendlyFire's attention to detail is uncanny and it really shows in this work:

For all of you explosion junkies out there, this video will surely be a treat for you! FF's mission over the past several months has to improve the explosions in every aspect of the mod. He's spent dozens of hours to achieve this by crafting new .ALEs (the code which allows effects to work in Freelancer), new textures and timing of sequences. For the player, this means you'll see some amazing explosions while you play the mod. Because it's the MOTY awards we wanted to release his current masterpiece of the Imperial Star Destroyer Death Sequence.


Once again if you like what you see we'd really appreciate the vote in this years MOTY in the upcoming section.

As always, any questions, comments or suggestions are welcomed!!
