STAR*DRIVE -- Is This Impressive or What?

I was idly browsing the Neverwinter Vault when I came across this bit of news from Yaddaman about his upcoming sci-fi module, STAR*DRIVE. The picture on the right was shamelessly lifted from the STAR*DRIVE news page at the Vault. There are more screenshots to be found there, so if this picture does not amaze you, head over to Yaddaman's announcement and prepare to be floored.

There are three things about this module that impress me: (1) The custom models are awesome. (2) The module and its custom content were all done by one person -- Yaddaman. (3) Yaddaman would like to see other modders use his custom content to create their own sci-fi modules. Don't take my word for it. Read this quote from Yaddaman, which he posted at the Comments section.

"I wish I could tell you exactly when it will be done but it's hard to say since I'm doing it alone and I don't have a huge amount of spare time (job, wife and two kids). I just hope you won't be dissapointed with the final mod and that you will enjoy playing it as much as I enjoy making it. It would be really cool if people would like to make their own sci-fi modules using the mod and maybe even contribute with some new resources eventually."

Hear, hear!

Glad you posted this Frank.

When I saw this, my jaw had to be picked up off the floor multiple times. This is some very impressive stuff, and is a *must* play by anyone. The effort and dedication put into the project alone is worthy of commendation on a level I am simply incapable of giving.

Holy Sci-Fi Heaven, Batman!

That's truly jaw-dropping material right there. This will be a nice shot in the arm for the game!

... crazy stuff. So awesome.

*Goes back to look some more*

That is quite bad-assery work. Unfortunately my sci fi interest (which is definitely higher than RPG interest) is all based on big space ship fleet battles or fighters, as opposed to the one on one stuff I wouldn't much know what to do.

Thanks for bringing this to my attention Frank.

The amount of work done here is simply amazing and I look forward to having a look at it, playing it, and maybe even using its content to create my own sci-fi adventure if there is enough to work with. :)

I am really pleased that this game is so flexible that those with talent (especially in the art dept.) can create something so different but (hopefully) still playable.
