hey guys, it's been a while!
glad to see some of you are still here.

anyways I had a lot of free time these last days Smiley (considering im after a bike's accident. but everything's fine now !! )

I opened some of the roots in the hard disk and made a new animation, sort of the ending of the game.
have fun =]

Yeah that was totally awesome. I do picture the Sa-Matra being encased in like a spherical asteroid thingy though.

This is amazing stuff!  Great job!

Danzibr, yeah. The SaMatra (as you play it) is definitely something that doesn't work logically in 3D.  Still is neat to see.

Same, but it'd be a pretty ugly ship from an overhead view if they did that!

On the other hand, the view as you slipped inside the asteroid shell would be all the more shocking. Give and take...

Or a more traditional view of the ship in a real asteroid field. The launchers could be placed on stationary asteroids (spherical) around the Sa-Matra. The guard fleet would be just outside the asteroid field.

How about a ring of asteroids as in the game, but not stationary, but moving, like in a gimbal.

I really don't think the scenario is at all possible. The game makes two assumptions: one, that you can't bypass the asteroids in the third dimension, and two, that the escape pod can.

Destroying the generators could stop the asteroids from moving, allowing the flagship to come in, and the escape pod to leave.

if a spherical asteroid belt is covering it, how will it fire weapons? :-P
I think making the generators create a shield around all the vessel and not just the entrance is a good idea

The spherical asteroid belt would not be solid. There would be open spaces, but if you tried to fly through them the launcher guards would prevent that, until you destroyed all of them. I say the ship would maintain a hold on the spherical asteroids, manipulate them, open a window to say: fire it's main weapon. This is all quite possible to fit into the real world.

anti-gravity manipulation of a physical object? Or tractor beam? We are just talking about a videogame to live or cartoon fabrication, are we not? Are you really gonna bust my balls over my interpretation?

This is how the Dnyarri describes the protection of the Sa-Matra:

Quote
The Sa-Matra is protected by a thick shell of fused asteroids reinforced with a weak stasis field.
You will never break through that.
The only opening through the asteroid shield is covered with a powerful force field.
One touch of that shield, and you're history, Captain.
To destroy the Sa-Matra, you will have to destroy the shield generators embedded in the asteroid shell.
There are eight of them and you must get them all before the force field falls.
When the field is down, bring in your flagship, move into the asteroid shell
and then press the big red button on your controls that starts the detonation sequence.
Your escape pod will eject automatically. Just hope you're far enough away before the ship blows.

So, unless the Dnyarri is making up a rather useless lie, the only way this could work in real life is for the asteroid protection to be spherical and for the escape pod to eject out the hole, which means the "bottom" of the ship has to be positioned towards the Sa-Matra. Of course, that looks a little weird, even though it really isn't.

Alternatively, the hole in the asteroid cluster sphere could be on the top, and the hole we see in the ring could just be a representation of where the ship comes in from. That could work well, actually. Have the ship enter through a "small" hole on the top, with the Sa-Matra firing at it like mad (like the 3DO version's video shows), and lower to the spot, then the escape pod can eject out of the hole.
