Awesome work! Between this, the updates for Eternal, and Marathon Redux, we may be witnessing the beginning of a Marathon renaissance! [MSmile]

Does that make Phoenix the Marathon fall of Rome or the Marathon dark age? I'm fine either way.

Full disclosure though, those screenshots do look nice.

Thanks, I'll let you know when we hit the closed Beta phase.

Cool, I’ll be looking forward to it.

I also released a ≈30-level scenario a couple weeks back, which surely has to count for something, even if it’s a relatively unpolished alpha with little original artwork

Fall of Rome, I think, unless you’re using “dark age” as an analogue to the Dark Age of Comic Books rather than the historical Dark Ages, and I could kinda see it fitting the former – though Red or Evil fit even better. (Of the four major TCs that are mostly in line with the main trilogy’s continuity, though, Phoenix is probably the darkest. And hardest.) On the other hand, it also depends which event you’re using “Fall of Rome” to refer to, since there are several plausible ones.

(I don’t want to derail this too much with a historical tangent, but I could also point to the House of Wisdom in Baghdad as one of several reasons the historical Dark Ages weren’t as dark as commonly believed. Maybe Phoenix is best described as the Marathon House of Wisdom.)

Oh no, it's most definitely the height of the Roman Empire, just before the collapse. [MTongue]

Oops. Sorry, I haven't paid nearly as much attention to that as I should - and I really should pay attention, because the little bits of info that I picked up on by glancing at the thread for it made it sound pretty cool. Apparently I have a lot of catching up to do, but first I need to finish up a Tour of Duty writeup and some concept art for the Redux Hound frames (been really slow on that last one, sorry).

It's fine, and thanks. (I may have more to say after work; I'm getting tired of typing words on a phone screen. Typing 20-ish wpm rather than >100 really sucks.)

CryoS and I did some tweaking on the Nebulon Rifle today and it turned out really neat so I thought I'd share this with y'all:

Great to hear this is still going strong. I'll find my way out of retirement to play this. If you need an extra beta tester, I'd be glad to throw my hat into the ring.

Continuing in Lolnovian tradition, some generic renders of the gunmodels.

How would an intermediary pistol between infinity and rubicon look?

Rubicon inspired AR, this time with a magazine that fits the round!

These 3 are already more or less implemented atleast sprite wise.
