Screenshot for the upcoming 1.7.4.

We’re just about to release 1.7.4, but I got excited about the frigate unit that is going to be introduced and had to post a screenshot.

I met a guy called Tom at a game developer meetup in Auckland and his mates insisted he was super quick at making models. Well, he did an awesome job of halving the poly count of my model and he replaced my substandard texture with the awesome one shown in the screenshot. For more examples of his digital art, check out his website: http://tomc3d.com/

Unfortunately the frigate doesn’t shoot (the cannon is just for show) but it does act as a helipad, so the player can rearm from it.
