Group Information

The year is 2367. Thirty-two years have passed since the Great War in which the only jump node to Sol was collapsed, isolating Earth from the Galactic Terran-Vasudan Alliance. As the Terrans and Vasudans struggle to rebuild their civilizations, civil war erupts in the Polaris system. A rogue Terran admiral declares war against the Vasudans, and his rebellion threatens the stability of the Alliance. Without warning, the Shivans return, and the GTVA launches a crusade to eliminate their Great War nemesis. Once again, the Alliance must crush the Shivan onslaught or face annihilation.

Progress is being made on BlackWater Operations!

Posted by BlackDove on Saturday, August 13 2005

Some of you may not know, many probably aren't interested, but I'm positing it as "General FS2" knowledge, for the most part because if this falls under anything, it's Vanilla FS2 heh.

During the last year since I joined the BlackWater team we've made heavy progress, and are currently beta testing the final chapter for the campaign. Meanwhile, all of the models are being updated to HTL status, considering BlackWater was supposed to be for FS2 vanilla, just simply one of the reasons why it's taking so long.

We're not releasing any of the newly modified ships screenshots yet, however we are releasing shots of the main vessel the campaign mostly revolves around.

First, here is a render that was made eons ago (three years probably).

...and this is how it appears in-game today (for the most part):

Hope you enjoy it.
