DFM

(Citizen Star News) - 2014-04-04 - We see a lot more of the DFM this week.

 

Featuring

  • Sandi talking about Alienware donated towers so attendees of the PAX East event can try out the DFM. Quite a challenge getting them to have enough memory and graphics power. (Uh oh, is my rig going to hold up?)
  • Meet the team
  • Various flashes of different aspects of the DFM with technical details and tidbits of where we are and the challenges the team faces.
  • Check in with the TNGS teams as they move forward with the work to present their designs for the final contest.

(Citizen Star News) - 2014-02-12 - Today's Wingman's Hangar 56 dropped the bombshell that the Dog Fighting Module (DFM) would be unveiled at Pax East and then be available to the community shortly after. (Plans that were explicitly said to be subject to change.)

As eager fans of Star Citizen all know, the module will be our first chance to fly our ships and try out space combat. It is expected to contain networking code to allow coop and player versus player across the net.

Not satisfied with just breaking the much anticipated news, we also got a view of the Vanduul and the learned that the Scythe would be initially be an AI opponent in DFM. The Vanduul Scythe will eventually be player flyable but that will likely take a while beyond this initial drop.
