But unfortunitely the GX prop is a size of a freakin' toy.  Needs to be more in-scale
EDIT: Image attached (POTD moment, anyone?)

Speaking of the POTD, I've been meaning to submit some...

Now if only I could remember where I stuck the darn files... :P

What platform is that city background? D3?

EDIT: Figured it out... it's Descent Freespace

http://www.facepunch.com/threads/1147936

I was reading that forum he originally posted the mod in, and they were rating it as dumb. WTH?! I think it's superb, but I don't know how Freespacers are.

I like to think I have a Descent taste of music.

I don't get it. All I know is, Descent and FreeSpace are not the same. FreeSpace, when I had windows, was fun.

I enjoyed the ending of that one. Even chuckled a bit.

The flight physics in that look very weird. I'm not sure if I'd want to play a 6DOF game like that, as the way the ship moves and turns feels binary in nature (you're either turning or your not). I guess I could probably get used to it in time though.

I wonder if that's a limit of Source or just the implementation of flight being used, heh.

You mean you've never heard of Eternal Silence?
Eternal Silence


It almost has 6DoF. You can slide the fighter, but only in one sliding direction at once. So you can technically bichord, but you don't get any speed bonuses.

That's not too bad, actually. I was expecting the flight to be a lot more...I dunno how to describe it...rigid, I guess. But no, it seemed very smooth and versatile. But I will have to concede that something about the motions seemed off, and for some weird reason, it started to hurt my head watching it, something that has never happened in watching 6DoF flights before. It might be a frame-rate thing, I dunno.
