Hi folks,

I know it's been a small while since we had any news, but don't worry everybody is hard at work and there's loads of incredible new stuff getting ready. To tide everyone over and thanks to @JeremyaFrs cool toys I was finally able to properly recreate the sFoil action on some of the ships. Since I also have some more graphics power available for me I took this opportunity to re-render some of the comparison videos. The new version should loop better, is rendered at 1080p and is overall just better setup. Some now also include animations showing of said sFoils. Here are some small previews:




Each video is linked to the actual showcase page where you can find the full renders. (Which are also much longer and sport variations and flight-group colors where applicable) I know it's not a shiny new toy for you to play with, but I hope you still enjoy the eye candy in the meantime.

Is that all ready and done? I won't have to re-render everything soon again because you rebuild it again?

The exhaustive and well maintain showcase really is the best documentation this mod could have. I really do appreciate the work you put into it.

Thank you, that really is appreciated. It's fun to start doing but once you hit 100+ models you need to export, setup and render it does get tedious. Always great to know the work is appreciated:)
