Another game from George.

So does it use the Transcendence engine(which means it's just a mod) or do I start it and it runs as a seperate game?

And what are the difference of it to transcendence?

I'll be observing from afar.

Frontier was the predecessor of Transcendence. It is its own game, but is similar to transcendence, but with lower level graphics and a few changes in keys and HUD layout.

I don't know. A few months ago, I tried it for posterity's sake. I never played all the way through it.

If it had lesser quality in graphics then where does the cool looking frontier ship come from?

George made a model off of frontier's playership and rendered it and put it on the frontier page. I modeled my model of of his rendered model, and then rendered that as a ship graphic.

nice one there.

but offtopic, there should be atleast one moment in the game where the frontier ship appears, like in St. Kath's at least, which with enough hard work, can be your ship. I'll try and make a fanfic for it(and if modders would be kind enough, make a mod for it).

Also, Mikeno Destroyer should appear as a "Victorian Class Superfreighter" Able to fly at immense speed with it's two giga-propulsors(whatever it's spelled). So you'd be seeing more of it in other star systems(primarily military stations later on) possibly carrying military supplies, people, men and stuff. It would be the fastest/hardest to kill ship in the game, using VX armor(which is a electrically powered shield plating that "would not work" on your ship (it's 1gig energy to work each) that covers it in 5 places and two Victorian Propulsor Drives(which is also 1gig each). If ever, there should only be 3 or 5 Mikeno Destroyers in existance. It's literally a Star system Ship, carrying at least enough people to fill half of eridani, enough food to feed all the inhabitants of eridani for 6 months, enough military weapons to... whatever, it's filled with alot of stuff.

I'll explain more soon if ever I get time to make a fanfic for the two ships.

George dummied out the mikeno because he didn't like the way it looked. And I must say I agree with him (those giant engines don't have any texture btw)
