glad to see Useless Creations still maintaining the screen savers. i have (jokingly) dubbed Space Wars 3D the "conversation killer" because once it kicks in, everyone in the room stops talking and stands there mesmerized by the action on screen. it's well done and VERY distracting!!!
it's a neat feature to be able to download new ships but new ones have't been created in a while. that's not really an issue as once you have downloaded all those available you probably won't feel the need for more.
i've seen some graphic glitches when the ships "warp" but otherwise it's pretty stable. would be fantastic if sound effects were a selectable option (with volume control).
I'd love to have the ability to choose my own music (mp3) for the background music, or better yet, have basic sounds effect -- yeah, I know there's no sound in space, but. ;-)
I agree with the review below and maybe pilot chatter too. I love it.
This is only the second screen saver I have actually purchased. The space ship models are well done and the lighting and backgrounds are exceptional. Very well done and hope the developer keeps adding on more effects (the ones that are there are well done, but certainly more can be added). Explosions, blooms, different missiles, rays and so on.
this screen saver runs pretty well on an 800 MHz eMac. the music is...interesting...personally i'll end up turning it off (i prefer quiet screen savers). and if i could tweak anything, i would make the textures a little darker and more "dingy" looking on the edges to help conceal the simplicity of the models.
still...it's really, really cool. i may just have to pay for this. :)
