Here is your very teaser look at the Terran Philadelphia class.



This ships existence was known earlier in the year when there would be a third variant of the Proxima family in Aftermath: the Philadelphia class. The Proxima Refit is the base for the Philadelphia class for the Terran race but unlike slapping some yellow stickers on the ship ; she will have a far more aggressive look over the existing Proxima Refit. Only in its initial stages, the Philadelphia class draws heavily on design elements from today's battleships plus use of carbon fiber and LED treatments to have a more brutal stance when in flight. The Philadelphia class will exist as a Terran only ship; there are no plans to have a similar ship sit above the Proxima Refit for the Federation.

Next few days will start showing off the Borg and new system. Videos coming too

Borg today and also new system. Usually keep new systems as separate promo but was testing Borg out aswell. This is the first time in a couple years the Borg have had any further work done to them. They all know have an ice/frost treatment applied to them which in certain systems come up really well. For today I will show how the TOS Cube looks. The system is Nullabyron which has a proto light set up to mimic heat and mirages. The reflective and metalic ships give off a shimer/mirage like effect when on this map and normal ships give off brighter bursts of light. This is the first time a treatment has been applied to an entire system. The whole set up is to mimic a desert like environment. The Borg though show off a different side to their ships with their ice/frost treatments that they have; the treatments allow the Borg ships to show more characteristics rather than a plain grey look.



Video footage was also taken of the Borg tests in the new system.

Two shots for today of the latest build of the TNG Diamond. The ship had a weird look before with strange purple glows but they gone now. They green. The ship has also had an ice treatment applied to it. The treatment makes the Borg ships more 'colder' than what they use to look like before plus it shows up detail they have always had but never came through from the way they were set up. This was the first Borg ship I started on but will go back in to do more work on it. Want to give it a more aggressive look than the awkward one it had before.

 The Diamond looks somewhat more "complex" than from what I can recall. Perhaps just too much Star Trek Armada memory in this brain of mine.

Awesome work on this tjoz.  :startrek006:

Thanks. They the same they always been in Legacy just a few simple changes done to them has made a world of difference to them. Still got the Borg TNG Sphere to show and also the AM Centaur to go then that will flush out what Ive been working on over the last week or two then can go in and work on some new things.

Video footage of the new TOS Cube today, finally put it up over at YouTube and ModDB. Same cube that was shown a few days ago on the new system Nullabyron.

Aftermath: Borg TOS Cube video test


Will also be thinking about closing down the main Aftermath site, simple reason being just dont have the time to update it anymore. Will see at the end of the month.

Last few things to clear out then can go in and start on some more things. Will show both the AM TNG Sphere and the Terran Centaur. The Sphere is in its first stages. Out of the Borg ships that were first done a couple years ago the TNG Sphere I did not like at all... So its now back to its stock look with a few enhancments. It has an ice treatment applied to it but not in the same intensity as the TNG Diamond or the TOS Cube. At this stage, the Sphere may not adopt an ice treatment like the higher Borg ships. May give the lower level Borg ships a different treatment. But the Sphere will be changing again.



Now the AM Centaur. Due to both the Steamrunner and Norway being in the Federation for the TNG era; the decision to make the Centaur a Terran only ship was a lot easier and allows more room to develop it further as a Terran ship. Having all 3 of them under the Federation it blurs the lines of what role each of the 3 had. As they are all essentially cruisers within the game, the room to develop each one further is very limited as they step on each others toes.Now that the Centaur is a Terran only ship, it allows for a more stronger presence and identity within the game. Currently having new nacelles, revised hull detailing and a few other minor changes; the Centaur is still in its early stages of development. Like the Philadelphia, it will take on similar characteristics to make the Terrans stand out from all other offerings within the community. The Terrans are being developed as a fully fledged race and not a bunch of Federation ships with yellow stickers on them.

New stuff for today, the AM Ravenous. As everyone knows, BR is a complete overhaul of both Legacy and Aftermath and the release will upset people over how some areas are handled. There are many ships within Legacy that simply do not fit the races they were meant for; the Ravenous being one of them. Currently in the Legacy community (stock and all mods), the Ravenous is a Klingon ship. In BR, the ship makes a race change over to the Romulans. Under the Klingons, the ship is out of place in terms of progression. Its down as a TOS era ship but compared to all previous ships and the ships that proceed it; it just does not fit in. Having Klingon treatments applied to it just didnt work either so it now is taking steps to become a part of the Romulan fleet. Initial treatment work has so far proved the ships works far better as a Romulan ship than a Klingon ship. The Ravenous also fits in more with the progression of the Romulan fleet.



At this stage, its era alignment is not confirmed but is currently sitting in the TOS era for testing purposes. The AM Ravenous is not the first ship to change races for Battalia Requiem and certainly wont be the last. Along with the Centaur, the Ravenous is the second confirmed ship to change races within Aftermath. In the coming weeks I might show one of the ships that have now become a part of the Vulcan fleet. Every ship in Aftermath is being developed further towards a certain goal; to set the release apart from every other offering. The entire race fleet structure is being changed to eliminate the Federation bias that Legacy came with. Ships will change races, small amounts of ships will be added and some ships may get dropped completely from the game.

Started working on playing with the warp effects and have come up with this one so far. I know what look I want to have but for time being playing around with it. The end result will be an effect that looks like it is damaging the surrounding area when ships enter and drop out of warp. This one is also testing out stronger bursts of light when you drop out of warp.



In other things, currently working out a new game mode for the release with possible MP...
