What I meant was "graphical" enhancements...
We already have all the models done (barring two or three extremely specialized ones that we won't need any time soon) as well as all the backgrounds and weapon effects done.  So, we won't be making further graphical enhancements if doing so will take manpower away from mission design.

However, the effects we already have are pretty good.  We use Lightspeed's background bitmaps and several enhanced weapon effects.  We don't have any skybox artists though.

Sometimes I think optimizing ships is sometimes a waste of time. I hardly notice the enhancements on ships like fighters since they whizz by so fast.

You can't be serious! Don't you love flying next to a ship and admiring the graceful lines and the distorted look on the pilot's face?  :lol:
Trendy Lefty. Good music from a good friend of mine.

The word 'Yo' is only ever to be used as a singular greeting.
It is considered an insult to destroy a perfectly acceptable greeting by misuse. A 'Yo-Yo' is a toy spun from the index finger by small children and enthusiasts,
any such use as a greeting will result in prompt reprimand by any member of the 'African-American' or 'Sri-Lankans-who-think-they're-black' community

Well, sometimes it just defeats itself. The models themselves are gorgeous, but in-game the shading system and ****ed up maps and etc. just make it fugly.

I don't think it's possible to tell the difference between deactivated and removed glowmaps...

Well, on Shivan ships generally speaking "deactivated" means just the base textures are visible. In the MVPs this gives the effect of a black/grey Shivan ship.

Not to mention that they look really ugly on FRED.
