Today's first subject: A lot of stuff is getting done and no progress is being made.

Now you might be wondering, how is that even possible? Is Spoon just wasting his time playing starcraft 2 again?
Well yeah, that too.

But I'm also fixing up pretty much every WoD 1 ship; Removing seams, welding poorly mirrored ships together, smoothing and adding more debris etc. I'm also learning the joy of Ao baking (not featured on the screenshots below :p )



Unforunately, its a time consuming progress, so work on Fredding hasn't started yet ):

On a far happier note, there's already a ton of new custom effects/explosions, weapons and sounds in WoD2. Not to mention Zy and Cyrvan capital ships along with a whole bunch of other new fighters and ships. I can say with 100% confidence that WoD 2 will be by far the most colorful freespace 2 mod ever.
Urutorahappī!!

yea, use of color... that's a toughie. There's a place for B&W photography, there's a place for gadgets with greyscale housing, there's a place for grey Mobile Suits, but masterful use of color, now that has artistic value.
Long time ago, you see, there was this thing called the VBB and... oh, nevermind.

Only the gunship has been changed, because it was just an upscaled soldier mesh with turrets strapped to it before.

Now I dont know about the artistic value of WoD (I'm just aiming for fun :p )

The new Cordi gunship looks beautiful. And the Challenger looks far more better. That ship on the pic, is that a Zy?
"Ka-BOOOOOOOOM!!!!"
"Uh, Sir we can hear the explosion."

Fair 'nuff. I'd sort of like to see some more of the blue come back, but I can live without.

It has a ring. Who likes rings?

Sonic the Hedgehog. :p

The new Gunship model looks good; I noticed before it was just a large Soldier with turrets.

I like the colours. Although we need a battle where we can see every colour!

The svn of the WoD Multiplayer project includes the fixed models of the WoD1 ships and the new shine maps for the Zy fighters and Hazel.

How the hell did Cirno get in here!

Full Auto - I've got a bullet here with your name on it, and I'm going to keep firing until I find out which one it is.

I refrained myself from making Touhou references to Jellyfish's post!

Wanted to post 'I see Cirno's been at work here, cause all I see is a bunch of frozen frogs', but then I restrained myself too.

I'd post something new and useful here, but there isn't anything more to say than "Work on assets is being done, progress is being made"

Do you plan on adding some UBAR Disco beams just like in Ridiculous?
That'd sure be colorfull. Do it. Now.

Other than that....... the Cordi Gunship is cool imo... but what's with this Challenger texture o_o ?

Today's subject: Performance&Paaaarticles

For WoD I've always considered my 6 year old laptop (1,6hz single core, radeon mobility 9700, 1gb ram) to be the minimal system requirement. And sure enough it ran WoD just fine (skybox with 4096^ excluded). Recent tests with WoD 2 on this laptop forever were not as smooth. I guess I'll have to consider releasing a 'lite' version of WoD2 on release that goes a bit more easy on the particle spawning.
