We learned at tonight's Chat w/the the Devs that the new KDF Academy will have a feature the Starfleet one won't have... A shooting range for testing weapons (eventually it will be retro'd into SA, but KA will have it first, exclusively, for a while).

Oh, that sounds nice. The Klingons definitely deserve a little extra on their side (for once) and they get to weed out all the bugs too.

Hope you guys that were in attendance didn't get the poor devs too drunk on wine.

Wow, I was hoping for the "Mountain Retreat" like the Klingon Homeworld scenes during Enterprise. (Unless that was a Klingon colony world, not Qo'nos itself)
It looks almost like a Klingon version of Hogwarts.

Then again, parts of Starfleet Academy remind me of Chicago O'hare.

How come your pictures always look so much better than my game; are all your leaked shots full-on renders from specialised machines? If so, I find that a little dishonest - I've always disliked that devs use hardware setups that aren't really available to their players to generate publicity shots, because they know full well that anyone who's not spent ten grand on their rig won't get the same fidelity.

because he has a graphic designers graphics card and you have a comercial one, my dad's a draftsman and it'd cost him about 3000 to buy the identical card in his work computer, i'm guessing the ones used by the cryptic team are alot better than that one.

If you are interested, I take them on a 9800gt (a sub $100 card) with about a 2.5 quadcore. You could probably build my basic machine from scratch for around $500 give or take. (its the software that would make it expensive) Obviously it's not super low end, but It's really not very high end hardware anymore either.

That being said, I'd like to think that one of the reasons I take nice shots is I know how to frame em, I know what angle the lighting looks best from, etc. Basically, I'm a professional at this stuff so of course it should look nice, and its more fun to show you nice looking stuff. For full disclosure: often these shots have some color leveling, etc done to them to make them more acceptable for sub-hd jpegs viewed on the web. Photojournalists for major news sites do the same sorts of things.
