Progress is being made on BlackWater Operations!

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.

Zul'Gurub Sneak Preview!

Over a thousand years ago the powerful Gurubashi Empire was torn apart by a massive civil war. An influential group of troll priests, known as the Atal'ai, called forth the avatar of an ancient and terrible blood god named Hakkar the Soulflayer. Though the priests were defeated and ultimately exiled, the great troll empire collapsed upon itself. The exiled priests fled far to the north, into the Swamp of Sorrows, where they erected a great temple to Hakkar in order to prepare for his arrival into the physical world.
