The Vegastrike Beta has just been released to the public! The improvements over 0.0.9 are tremendous! I spent hours designing some fun missions to play with many of the all new starships included!Wow. You can download the beta from the Vegastrike site.
Vegastrike Beta includes:
-Joystick support for a full featured joystick
-Sound effects that make starships roar as they pass and zap as they die
-Bolt weapons with glowing lighting effects
-Cloaking that renders a ship partially/fully invisible
-All new starships
-Customizable fully working HUD with targetting displays, etc
-Customizable Alien Race logos that will change on all starships by editing TerranPriA.bmp and TechPriA.bmp
-Varied weapons on different starships
-Explosions that literally tear a starship into pieces
-Shields That Glow upon hit (in the location hit)
I would really appreciate it if some of the Vegastrike fans can send me their own missions. I have included descriptions of the new mission format in the README file included-- it's a lot simpler than the old one.
Please mail missions to firstname.lastname@example.org for all to share in the enjoyment of each other's work. Expect to see a nice complilation of user-designed missions in the future. Also revisions to any fighter stats to make them for fun to fly/fight would be welcomed!
Thanks and please send any comments/bugs you have to email@example.com
