Armada Beta Screenshots

Post by icewolf132 » Tue Jul 03, 2007 5:01 pm

Yep, you read it right...while bouncing around in Google I came across this; a nifty gallery of Armada screenshots during it's development in 2000! I kind of think that some of the older stuff fit in a bit better...and is it just me, or are some of the Romulan textures a bit more detailed than now? o.0

Some of the older stuff looks really nice (screens 35 and up). I like the fed starbase especially. It seems they toned everything down a bit prior to release.

The phoenix superweapon is cool as well. Big explosion! lol

Probably found in beta testing that the video card requirements were more than the expected target audience had at the time. You don't want to use too low a requirement or it won't look good enough, but you don't want to use too high a requirement or many people won't be able to play at all. I think we can all name games that went too far one way or the other. :D

Any chance someone could recreate some of the old features and models from these screen shots.
