Wow.  Very well done.  The starbase animation in UQM, though simple now, is still one of the prettiest I've seen in a game.

Wow, very cool. Amazingly rendered. Looks like it came out of a professional 3D animated cartoon.

Oh, if only you had locked the camera in place at the end and let the shot linger for a second or two, then I could have looped it and made something a little longer than this:

Starbase animation with sound

All hail iMovie.  Smiley

That is one cool animation! You know, with this level of animation technology at our disposal, it shouldn't be impossible to make at least *something* to replace the opening and ending movies from the originals... Smiley

Not in the vision of a 'pure port'....

Still, that is one kickass clip...maybe, if you were so inclined, you could do other cool stuff, like the Vindicator docking/undocking etc...THAT would be cool!.

Well, with the remixed music in place it is already not a 'pure port' per se.

And how exactly would that fit in with the aforementioned 'pureness' if it is to be used in the game? Wink

Seriously, though. Making a new intromovie DOES make sense, as long as the rights to the original intro lies in legal limbo. Such a clip should not, of course, be a part of the actual game download, but, like the remixed music, as an addon.

It would not have to be a lot of work. The main objective is to focus on the written text, like the original does, with the visualizations serving as a nice backdrop, a supplement. At the moment, the game starts with no real explanation as to why you're actually there, so some sort of intro IS necessary, IMO.
