Vega Strike's HellcatV has released the first new screenshots in a long time. You can admire them here.
Soon Coming to a Vega Strike near you............
You'll be thankful to note that the next version will include missile trails, ship damage (leaking fuel) and animated shockwaves like prophecy but with an animated texture as well! The next version will also have some missions where you hire wingmen... and even meet and save some people who become your loyal comrades! Remember Shift-F is form on my wing! Also a number of other improvements are continuing due to help at the forum, new musics, improved cargo and description, and some easier to get started features...!
He also asked that we mention the upcoming 2002 Award for Free Software for which he's probably hoping to get nominated. Instructions on the page.
