Brad Wardell's site for talking about the customization of Windows.

We’ve talked previously about the work done on updating the visuals for Sins of a Solar Empire: Rebellion.

Tomorrow, we plan to release BETA 1 of Sins of a Solar Empire: Rebellion so users can see both the graphical update and, more importantly, the new Rebellion and Loyalist factions, Titans, new capital ships and the hundreds of other changes and additions to the Sins of a Solar Empire universe.

A lot of the improvements will be subtle but hopefully noticed by players. The team has updated the AI for both combat (using special abilities intelligently) as well as for strategic use to ensure the single player game gets taken up a few notches.

The multiplayer experience is obviously very beefed up thanks to improvements to ICO and the inclusion of Steamworks for taking a lot of the load off of ICO.

Two words:

Sick Day.

To be fair, the released screenshots do not do enough justice to Rebellion, it looks far better on this video. I even created thread to talk the lack of contrast and not very realistically looking lightning, despite addition of selfshadowing. i have no complaints about that anymore, it looks very adequate, so kudos to you for good work.

 

EDIT: There i did it, finally broke my fears and preordered it. Shit, i feel so insecure about this online transactions. BTW it says copy of the receipt was sent to my mail, but so far nothing new on my inbox    Can someone please confirm my order was accepted and i did everything right? In the top right corner there is the (1)Cart, when i click on it, the first step of buying shows up, the one before you click on checkout. Am i missing something?

 One more question, is my credit cart info now stored with your system? I would frankly prefer if this could be done without it, as one-off order, like on Steam...

Wow, I was thinking it would be late March. Can't wait to see the changes for myself.

Wowww, so early... need to fast transfer money on pay-pal since it take around 4 working day for money to appear there...

As for the video, the really awesome thing is the zoom... yes, i know, it is there from the beginning but it is a pleasure to have a smooth zoom from the galactic level to the smallest detail...

Retexture work !!! Hope that it is not again a switch between two texture channel else modders will kill you !!!

Quick question:

Did they increase well sizes, or scale down the ships to make room for the bigger ships?

on Feb 29, 2012

Exciting!

What better way to show off new graphics then to film a computer screen. 

 

on Feb 29, 2012

Wow... must be perfect timing becauase it is snowing a ton right now.

Does the BETA access happen if you preorder or do you have to be picked/be considered.

 

I feel a sick week coming on.

 

Hers to Sins 2

Dude I love the timing, spring break, Sins Beta and Mass Effect 3 OH BOY!

 

Ok seriously whats with all the hate? We get the beta tomorrow, how many dev's give you inside videos like this? Ya its not perfect video. I have a led and most youtube videos don't have 1080p and the ones that are, only a few are perfect 1080p. Relax.

Tomorrow you will be blowing shit up in all its glory.

Does this mean that we'll be able to play it in online multiplayer tomorrow via Steamworks?  The online multiplayer part and the integration with Steamworks is ready to go?

They were showing me the updated changes, I pulled out an iPhone and video'd it.  Those who want fancier quality can wait the months it takes for marketing to do them.

on Feb 29, 2012

I had planned to spend some time on my studies tomorrow, but I guess it will have to wait.

on Feb 29, 2012

I see that the one Kol ships isn't shadowing the other in the video.

However, it is beta and it still makes me want to play it even more!
