What If Preview Released!

For people who dont know, What If is a total conversion plugon under development by me and my brother (halabut). Anyway, I hope it will be out for EV:3 whenever it arrived, or Epsilon, whatever millenium its release is in.

Well, this is very much a preview - it is not guarenteed to work, especially in the weapons region - some work, some you can buy but have no ammo, and weirder still, some you can buy immediately dissapear from your inventory (though credits are deducted). Maybe if I can figure this out I could implement some sort of fraudulent traders ;).

Currently the plugin has about 1/2 the final systems, barely any ships above the basics (and many need re-rendering or even remoddling), some weapons/outfits, no missions past the basics and no hints at the final level of the plugin. There are many, many bugs, like over/under-powered ships, badly masked weapons and misreference resources. This release is to help track some down.

Anyway, it is still quite a good indicator of how the final plug will look in terms of graphics quality (though there are some exceptions, I think the shuttlecraft is one), I suggest you download it.

It can be obtained from: (url="http://"http://homepage.mac.com/blackhole/FileSharing.html")Mac.com(/url) (yes, I know I used a template, lazy me) or anonymous iDisk (username: blackhole)

Great graphics indeed...=)

I haven't played it yet, but what I noticed right off is that all/most of the landings and spobs and stuff are still in millions of colors. Save some space and convert them to 256...

If its going to be for EV3, you can convert them to jpegs later, too. That'll save a lot of space.

D/Ling now, tell you about it on irc.


whats Epsilon?

Epsilon is a EV-like game supposedly in development by Skyhawk, Jos Denbar (aka laer) and some others. I may or may not be out anytime soon.
