The 3DO ship info videos have not been implemented in UQM. AFAIK, the PC version of SC2 never had any ship info (unlike SC1).

Maybe someone can use this (or the original, this one is very lossy) to make SC2 ships info unique to UQM (assuming P&F would allow SC1 content in UQM):

Wow.  Those are really nice, and the "new ships" very much match the "spirit" of the "originals".  Excellent work.

But of course, I have a few problems with it: Smiley
  • The Mauler's fuel recharge rate should have "empties" in it, as the ship's special increases the rate (albeit temporarily)
  • The "energy fields" holding the Probe together look like neon lights.  They should resemble more closely "bolts of lightning", as that is their appearance in-game.
  • The Kohr-Ah ship is obviously based on the "inferior" SC3 ship model. Wink  Re-working the shot completely with an "imposing" camera angle (a la the Dreadnought artwork) and putting some "strange alien writing" on the hull would, in my mind, be more effective.
But as I'm sure you can see, those are but minor nits to pick.

Is it possible to track down the artists who made the new ships and get them to release their artwork under the same license as the game content?  TFB is the "easy one" to find in this case, and I would hope that they would be willing to release more game content with UQM.

Also, I don't remember there being any veins on the Supox.

That's my only nit that Nic didn't pick too.
