We announced last year a partnership with the new MicroProse Software company, my original game company, to update WarBirds 2020 with new graphics with investment by MicroProse.http://www.MicroProse.com
We worked on putting our current terrains into Unreal 4 to provide better graphics.
After about 6 months of work by our SPINDZ and a group of outside contractors and in consultation with MicroProse, we made the decision that WarBirds 2021 would get an even bigger upgrade and use the new worldwide graphics system of the MicroProse CEO instead of Unreal 4.
The Titan graphics system, http://titanim.net/www/
, has been used in real world military systems for the last 5 years, and is being continually enhanced and now brought to MicroProse’s new games including WarBirds 2021.
MicroProse is also paying for WarBirds to have 4 new aircraft with new cockpits sometime in the Spring, the 109, P-51, Spitfire, and the B-17.
We will add even more updated aircraft and cockpits as we move to Titan.
IENT will release its first big improvement for WarBirds 2020, sometime in the spring.
We will have updated the User Interface, added more Rank, Medals, and Promotions to successed in the game, added new training for new players, improved lighting and shadings on the current terrains, implemented a new and improved billing system with more security for all, and will focus on great events as we continue to move to WarBirds 2021.
We will continue to add some of the great new art for the new aircraft, external and internal views, as we work on converting all graphics in the game to the Titan system.
While we hoped to do the great new terrains and graphics with WarBirds 2020, the excellence and high fidelity of the Titan engine, which is and will take a lot of work, will be even bigger than anything we could have done with Unreal!
With the WarBirds 2020 release we will also start additional new marketing to bring in both returning players and new players.
Thanks for your continuing support and for flying WarBirds.
