This version is meant less as a teaser and more as a test of texture resolution on as many different machines as possible. We want to ensure AFF looks as good as it possibly can on your machine, so we need to see screenshots of our models on as many different rigs as possible! Please, if you download this release, post screenshots of the ships in action.
Some clarifications: The current weapon loadout is not final, nor are the attack styles tweaked, animations finalized. This build is not a representative of the mod's intended gameplay, it is simply a showcase of our visual progress.
Version .4 marks the beginning of gameplay testing in the Alpha of AFF. Both sides have relative parity in terms of build lists, new vessels, weapons, levels, features, and tweaks will be added incrementally.
A new gametype is now available specifically for multiplayer deathmatches online as well as a very limited AI (only attacks, no building). A new map, Epyrus, has also been included but is not fully functional (the central space platform is not scripted or operational).
AFF deathmatches revolve around the capture of key points and objects that yield ru (cp) bonuses over time. At the moment, only relay satellites are available for capture by the player. In roder to do this, you must use the generic utility vessel to capture them. One of these vessels are given to you at the beginning of the level, and are also buldable via the logistics transport.
*Ships are now buildable via the Logistics vessel (fighters) included and the relay satellite (buildable from the logistics vessel).

-Spartha Training Grounds(1v1)
by Alex Drake
Description: Quick 1v1 map with very low resources meant to test a variety of features (including glare, star fields and other fx). You might need some of EJs sfx packs, though I doubt it. This map is best used to test out new AFF ships and is not multiplayer approved or balanced (atleast by me). Starting points are directly facing eachother in a linear path so it should be easy to find the enemy. Lots of room for more complex strategies as well (if you want to test a particular situation).
