It might be a casual trip for Bix, but it's going to be a giant leap for Bluff.

I'm proud to announce that the next BixPack will have the theme Mars!

Fly in low Mars orbit over Valles Marineris, one of the largest canyons of the solar system.

The rockit is a 3D model and has been designed especially for BixPack 25. The vehicle launches and lands vertically but flies horizontally.

The flag and name are on the same texture, so they can easily be personalised.

In this screenshot you can see Arsia Mons. The height and colour maps are based on actual Mars data collected by the Mars Global Surveyor (MGS) developed and launched by NASA.

Watch Mars rise from Phobos, its biggest moon.

BixPack 25 features a terraforming scene. Watch Mars warming up and see oceans and rivers appear!

On the left you can see Valles Marineris filled with water.

ETA launch date?
Do you put a countdown timer on the site?

Can't wait to flight thru the Valles Marineris.

Thank you all!

We're working very hard to have all systems go for launch before the end of next week.

As always we'll keep you informed in this community and by e-mail:

LostBoyz, the template starting at 1:28 is inspired by your style: greyscales with red detail!

Take my money! Love the more realistic style of this pack. And I cannot resist the space theme, you know.
