This is an updated release of Dimensional Eclipse. It includes fixes and also updated and new ships. Features include:
- Some missions are easier (M6, some of the "normal" chapter 2 arc, and Bloody Talons is now playable past r8670)
- Some currently existing ships redesigned.
- New ships in general.
This should be installed as a seperate mod from the original and is not designed to play in tandom with the old one.
Forward from release post:
æ¬¡å…ƒã®ã‚¨ã‚¯ãƒªãƒ—ã‚¹ - Dimensional Eclipse is what I describe as high-maneuverability mod, where all fighters have glide/sidethrust/reverse AB, and can move around at around 300m/s. Capital warships move at over 100m/s. This provides a flavour of combat completely different from that of traditional FreeSpace 2 campaigns, taking place over larger distances, and being much faster in general. It is set in a universe entirely unrelated to FreeSpace 2's in order to have more freedom for the new mechanics. The universe does, however, draw quite a bit of inspiration from Wings of Dawn, and Anime in general, so if you're allergic to such things, you might not like how the universe is layed out, though I hope its not too intrusive as to detract from the gameplay. I do admit, the campaign is rather verbose at times, perhaps overly so, though I hope that does not take away from the entertainment value of the missions themselves. I've had some testers say that this is a difficult campaign, but I feel most of its difficulty arises from unfamiliarity with the new style of combat, and how the strategies that work well in traditional FreeSpace fall short when given more options. It is for this reason why I've included a training mission.
