Looking for some peeps to remodel some textures. Over the years since Descent was open sourced this guy over here has been adding a tonne of features to the engine. You should check out the high rez model pyro.
One of the few remaining issues is textures there is a open office file of the textures listing which textures have a high rez version. Some of the major ones to finish are the last 2D powerups for weapons. They have yet to be finished if anyone wants to have a go take a look at the powerups/weaps/special bits be my guest. It would be cool to update some of the things in this old game and since the game is ancient much of the work should be pretty cut and dry.
