That looks very cool as well Jacob!
No one will come in anyones way here i think, i´ve got three ships which i am allowed to use so far. One from X-G, one from Carl and (soon) one from you Jacob. I also got one which i have rendered myself in PovRay but it looks quite crappy.
Anyway, i´ll use your ship Jacob as the "mainship" as i said and have X-G:s and Carl:s as enemy ships, perhaps i´ll include my own ship as well. There will be three or four enemy types in the (small, very small as i mentioned) shoot´em up so all ship types will get their on-screen-time.;)
But my "project" shouldn´t be taken to seriously anyway as it´s more of a technical-demo than a whole game. It´s actually the "final project" in a C++ course i am taking at school. After i view it to the teacher (thursday) i´ll release it freely if anyone would like to take a look at the design/code sometime.
Anyway! Big thanks to all three of you so far! I also noticed this thread where a guy wrote a lot of links to free resources, i will not use any ship there for this mini-project though (perhaps an explosion or something) as i´ve got your permission to use your ship-graphics which is much better. ...
