It's Texturific!
08/11/2006
(sigh, everytime I think that I've invented a cool, new word, I check google and find out that it's been in use for years now. There really is "nothing new under the sun")

Huzzah! I've been looking forward to taking the story into a new star system for a while now. Finally a new starfield, a pretty nebula and some new lighting to play around with.

I've been putting a lot of effort into honing my 3D skills, which means that over the next few week's there should be an increase in the quality of the art. Better textures, more detailed models, more attention to lighting etc. You can see the first few samples of these new textures on this page - mainly in the walls and floor of the lounge, and in Niobe's hull. I'm trying to give everything a grittier feel.

Meanwhile, I stumbled across this incredibly cool list of webcomic tutorials by Joel Fagin, which have done a great job of showing me what's wrong with this site. I have therefore made a number of changes. Most notably I have removed the sidebar when viewing the comic itself, and reduced the filesize for each page (in some cases halving it) - making the site more friendly towards dial-up users, and those working with their monitors at 800x600. I've also reformatted some of the text, especially in the About section, to make it easier to read.
