WCS posted a neat little shockwave demo, and it's oddly amusing. The ship below flies around pretty well in a browser window, but some artistic support is needed next. Check it out here. I have to say, this is already further along than some fan projects get.
I'm trying to create a small Wing Commander "game" using Macromedia Director 8. I have made slightly simplified model of a Hellcat V, but I'm having a bit of a problem with texturing. I have a background in programming, but not in art/media. Do you people have any advice to create a (semi-)realistic metal texture? Also, does anyone have a good reference for all the metal seams/other texture objects on which people base their models on?

Wing Commander Shockwave

Click once in the opening screen ( yes I'll replace it at some point, but I needed a suitably low-compression ratio image to prevent a bug in Adobe Shockwave player for Firefox )

Controls:
Q,W - Roll
Arrow keys - Yaw, pitch
Z,X - Speed
Home - Return to opening screen

Thanks in advance :)

EA Rocks iPhone Launch Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Update ID

Electronic Arts has announced their domination of the top selling app chart on day one of the iPhone 4 launch. They held 12 of the top 20 sales positions. This was no doubt boosted by the 99-cent sale on key titles held the day before the new phone was released. The good news is that the sale has been extended through Monday, June 28, on numerous games ranging from $1 to $3. Games can be purchased now via iTunes and downloaded to an iPhone later. Check out the full list of discounted titles here.
On the day of the Apple® iPhone® 4 launch, EA Mobile™ − a division of Electronic Arts Inc. (NASDAQ:ERTS) − dominates the Apple Top Grossing App chart for iPhone with 12 of the top 20 titles.

Since the inception of the iPhone, EA Mobile has been a definitive player with the rise of iPhone and iPod touch® devices as gaming platforms.
