Sorry there's not much more to report... I really, really want to get this damn installment done! I've just finished converting many of the scene file animations into MDD files (basically sacrifices changeability for less sluggish editing) and will be starting the final lighting/composition process soon.
In the meantime, I think I'll post some screenshots of some of the content volunteers have made. I had asked Delura volunteers if they could make me some random ships for this episode, and they have some creative ideas.
This one was created by Raymation3d. Kinda reminds me of the guidebot from the Descent series and consequently I decided to make it an automated repair-bot that resides in the vehicle workshop.
