Having just picked up TIE Fighter, I am loving this project even more. Any rough ideas how far away we are from a release, even an incomplete one?

We are hoping for a December/January release currently, but this is not concrete.

Couldn't resist showing off a couple screenshots of how sexy this game can look now, with many thanks to ilios for providing these hi-res backgrounds and planets :D

Maybe a bit too colorful for the Star Wars atmosphere, but it looks wonderful.
and this is a way how XWA should be changed.
Great work and thank you.

I realise that a lot of SW takes place on simple empty starfields so there's going to be plenty of those in missions too, but I can't resist making it just look gorgeous as possible either in others :D

Here's a new mission gameplay vid for B1M2: https://youtu.be/Y9GZ8mYpiso

3 years ago I began the reimagined idea with a comparison vid of Original and Reimagined versions of D-34. My how the graphics have changed since then! For reference, this is the original video from Sept 2017: https://youtu.be/J6X_XgUozWE

That's gorgeous. Looking forward to the reimagined versions.

Crazy thinking back that its been like 26 years since the original TIE Fighter came out.

Great job guys! This is looking fantastic! I love how you were able to convert and use the original music as well!

I love it! Though I will never understand why people play with the cockpit hidden, especially with the gorgeous dynamic cockpits...

I know there are some new upcoming crosshair designs in XWAU, so there will be some variety there. I don't know if this includes a version that's similar to TF or how easy it is to change the crosshair once installed.

I tend to turn it off myself when I play because I like to see the entire battlefield unobscured by cockpits, plus as I test I need to see as much of what's going on as possible anyway to not any behaviours I don't want. Personal preference at the end of the day :D

Hi AngeI,

Another question, if for example I have installed the original Tie Fighter (GOG) in German and after I will install this mod, the language keep in German or will be in English ?

It will be in English. Having the original game installed - though a likely requirement for installation of the mod - has no direct impact on the mod itself.

Sad to say... this is a tough opponent for Star Wars Squadrons.
@AngeI great work. This is how Star Wars should look.

Barring any interference from EA/Disney and assuming we stay roughly on schedule, we are loosely aiming for a December/January release. This of course may get pushed back further but I would be very surprised if TFTC isn't released by March latest.

This is spectacular !!

Only for my curiosity: If will be an update of XWA (update ships, planet , cockpit, others ..) TFTC will continue to work ? Or need change something ?

We work with the XWAU team so any updates that affect us will be adjusted accordingly in the future.

I’m officially in the “I freaking LOVE those backgrounds” camp.

It makes me think how I used to have a problem with what I saw in Squadrons and thought it was the backgrounds at first, but now I realize the backgrounds in Squadrons are fine and it’s the cluttered flying environment that actually bothered me.

Anyhow. Woot, pretty!
