To celebrate me getting way too old this week, here's a quick peak at the new YT cockpit :shock:
Work on XWAU 2024 is nearing completion. Just working out some annoying bugs and touching up the final details.
We will bring you more news asap ;)

The Firespray or Slave One, has become one of the ships using nearly every feature the XWAU has created.
Master Qui-Gon and Ace Antilles have given this bounty hunting ship an update with many improved features!

It has new improved textures, normal mapping and some extra model details.
The cockpit has been improved to try to be more movie accurate. It now features a lower seating area too.
The pilots have been improved too with options for Boba Fett, Emon Azzameen and Jango Fett.

There are now multiple Profiles to choose from like Slave I, Andrasta, Enforcer and Firespray.
Multiple new Skins and different Flightgroups have automatically assigned unique Laser colors too!
So for example Slave One is red and the Andrasta lasers are yellow.
All this and unique sounds for lasers, flyby and more!

You can also change the selected profile to play in Skirmish mode without effecting the Campaign too.

Does it launch the "guitar string" bombs like in Episode II?

One of the things I've spent a lot of time working on in XWAU 2024 is hangar improvements.
We started with the ships laying on their bellies in a small cramped Hangar.

We've come a long way in 25 years and now have almost total control of all Hangar aspects.

Landing ramp and gear on the YT-1300 back there, eh? Impressive work all around.

Sweet. This is really nice!

The YT1300 seems to me too small compared with the shuttle, though. Is it an effect of perspective? They do not seem so far one from the other.

It really is night and day, a massive improvement. I like the stripe on the shuttle, more skins? Although seeing it now, I do miss the yellow lines.

Mostly perspective. Craft in XWA are never totally to scale I think or it would mess up a lot of gameplay.
So we stick close to what it was originally and change things where possible.
For example the Falcon is actually bigger so a Mini one has to be used for the reactor run

We are getting close to release so going to start spoiling you with lots of eye candy.

Due to amazing enhancements we can now have a dedicated opening video to the Film Room.
So here's a small look at the epic video @MechDonald created when you enter the room.

I wonder if it was deliberate that the T-wing both looks like a badly assembled viper from Battlestar Galactica and is not a very good fighter?

Oh it's gotta be, right? Failed H-K design and all, I love this version so much.

This really isn't the place for that kind of discussion, this thread was dedicated for previews and teasers for the upcoming patch.

@Kel9509 @Will T I have split your size discussion posts and moved them into a thread of their own in the Discussion forum.
Your ship, Captain, I need a drink.
