Lol, we're gettin' there :D

Currently, I'm actually neck deep in university work, and Phantom is moving to a new place. So, lets just say we're hitting a bit of real life traffic getting there.

We're still open to new members joining the team, provided you're willing to learn some serious modding :P That would really help with speeding things along. Problem is, most people aren't really up to the challenge. That's why there's only two of us working on FT.

Some of the currently open positions:

- special weapons developer
- advanced modeller with good knowledge of sod hierarchy.

We're willing to teach some of the more advanced concepts to anyone that's seriously interested in joining the team.

Now for an update, the huge chunk of work that was the intro movie is finally nearing completion. With that out of the way, we'll move on to finishing the other races.

Also, we now have high quality unit voiceovers for nearly all the units, guaranteed to provide plenty of entertainment.

The Sernaix damage animations are nearly complete now. I will be posting a sample video most likely on youtube once that's entirely finalized.

Meanwhile, here are some intro movie screenies. Models, except for the interiors, are the same as will be in FT. Rendered in 3ds Max:

1. The U.S.S. Archer's Warp Core starts to Breach!
2. The Enterprise travels to qo'Nos to assist the Klingons
3. The refitted U.S.S. Voyager prepares to leave space dock
4. The U.S.S. Titan leaves Mars drydocks with a small fleet


5. The Defiant enters the Sol System with a handful of ships to defend Earth
6. Voyager arrives in the new home to the Romulan Star System to ask for help
7. The Attack of qo'Nos begins!
8. The Sernaix make little work of the Klingon Fleet


9. The Sernaix Dreadnought powers it's primary weapon!
10. The Klingons fight to the Death
11. qo'Nos is hit!...
12. ... and explodes in a ball of flames!


13. The Federation Fleet Mobilizes
14. A Sovereign unleashes a "Phaser Spread"
15. The U.S.S. Pastuer comes under heavy fire
16. The Sernaix unleash a "Charged Particle Beam" at an unprepared Sovereign...


17. ... and causes damage to the Warp Core
18. The Sernaix make their mark on the Federation Fleet...
19. ... and continue to reduce their numbers
20. The Independence Class demonstrates "Holo-Shock" to the Sernaix advesaries


21. The U.S.S. Voyager unleashes a "Photon-Spread" to the Sernaix Dreadnought
22. A Shuttle leaves an Intrepid Class to offer "Shuttle Aid" to a fellow vessel
23. Suffering a direct hit, "Medical Teams" are called to Titan's Bridge...
24. ...as Admiral Riker prepares for the final blow


25. The Borg are quietly monitoring the battle...
26. ... and isnt long before the cubes are dispatched
27. The Romulans arrive!
28. ... and just in time as a Prometheus takes on heavy damage


29. A wounded Galaxy Class vessel
30. The Romulans aid the Federation Fleet
31. The Romulans unleash a "Disruptor Burst" upon a nearby Sernaix vessel
32. It maybe down, but it's not out of the game as a Galaxy unleashes a "Phaser Burst"

Those are some KICK_@$$ screenies! It's nice to see that FT hasn't been abandoned.

As for the open positions, I'd love to join. But I would have to get an ISP before I do. And I'll have to learn to mod like you do. But, If and When I get an ISP (Which, come hell or high water, I WILL) I will *try* and join up.

If I do join up, will there be any room for... never mind. If I do manage to get an ISP and join the roster, and help finish the mod, I think the experience would prove invaluable to my own mod.

It's hard to believe that Future Tense is finally nearing completion.

I joined these forums back in 2005 after following Future Tense's development for ~6 months. Every few weeks I'd stop back in to check on the progress of FT.

I stopped visiting for a solid year when I got busy. Found my old Armada 1 CD in a box a few days ago, scratched to hell and looking pitiful. Same as always though it installed no problem. Came on to download modding tools and a few tutorials to brush up on and saw some new posts in the forum, plus saw the news post.

Gotta say after all this time it's exciting to be getting close to the release. I didn't think it'd ever get finished, but I'm thrilled to see it close.
