The star background is pretty neat. I took one of the 1600x1200 images from the NASA website sattelite images and cut it up into a few tiles and told Torque2d to wrap it. I'm still playing with the image sizes but it looks pretty good. I'll post some screenshots tonight of my player ship sitting in space all alone. Hopefully moving around as well.
I'm at work, but I am vnc'd in and writing the entity code now.
