Tonight we have a special treat (or curse depending on your mindset). Mark put together a little movie documenting the creation of a fighter for the Archangelesk Dominion, and it's pretty cool, so I would recommend looking at his if you are interested in how the art for the game is made. I put (read: threw) together a little video that shows the new Action Menus I made in action, and also shows a little preview of gameplay (although it's pretty boring on account of I'm playing me and it lasts only 30 seconds[grin])
Anyways, here are the movies for download:

Download Eugn's Video (6.59 MB)
Anyways, today I pretty much tweaked the cursor interface in order to get the different cursor types working with the new menus I made. I'm pretty happy with the menus, although I need Mark to draw some quality buttons for them, because mine don't look very good. Oddly, these menus are a huge addition to the game, because before the player had no way of using the ship's special "powers". In any case, the menus have brought the game that much closer to a public demo, so high five everyone!
Well, I've got to go, but here's an updated screeny showing the arrow cursor selecting an option (note the underlying text and red outline). Anyways, talk to you guys later!
