Jan 27th - 2 New Screenshots - 1 Klingon 1 Starfleet
« on: 27 January 2009 03:34 PM »
Cryptic Studios have released two brand screenshots to the folks over at MMORPG.com

The first screenshot showcases a Klingon Ship while the second one appears to demonstrate a Miranda Class Federation ship that has been through some customization.

Canon is what people argue exists on ships that don't exist.

Well remember, these are likely designs from there Starship Customization Engine...so variants of the Miranda Class will likely appear all over the game.

Holy frak, that Miranda Class is an ugly SOB.

I dont mind the customization part of the game, but there needs to be SOME limit. In Star Trek, most customization of the ships are done internally, not externally.

I personally would like to see the ship design/creator and how it works.

I see my fears have come true, this is no longer Star trek online but Trek Wars Online.

Uhmmmm, yeah. Hard to disagree with the logic here. Everything I see continues to point to this game being a mock-up of Star Trek, a thing with the Trek name slapped on it just to sell units based on the name.

I just read Zinc's comment, but I have to wonder... that beaten-up planet is in-game?? Looks drawn to me...?

Of course, I shoud quote the post I'm responding to:

Quote from: Zinc
Trust me, these are NOT concept art. These are in-game screens.

The game is looking, IMO, AWESOME.

Shayne Herrera (our art lead) and the team continue to mystify me with the stuff that they're putting together! Keeping it on budget and looking better and better.

This last batch of shots, Shayne and I had to break the artists hearts by insisting that they put slight imperfections in each shot so that we could prove they were in-game and not concept! : )

In the Klingon shot - if you look at the asteroid in the upper left corner, you can see a texture seam.

In the Miranda shot, you can make out the polygon joints in the trail FX on the ship. Nobody would draw those in.

I can't believe I'm on the forums pointing out the imperfections in our screens! : )

Corrected my first post.  I thought these were hand drawn concepts but they are actual in game screenshots.
