Which maps do you like better? We need your input!
Hey!

Recently I've been discussing with Goober upgrades to the classic mods that are included in SA modpack. One of topics of our conversation was SF Chimera.

We've got a few possibilites to choose from and that's why we need your input.

1. Do you think that old classic maps are better? The big adventage of them is that they're detailed. On the other hand they're very, very low res :(

Preview:


2. Another possiblity is to use an upgrade made by FreeSpacKing. Their big adventage is that they're higher res and pretty, but less detailed.

Preview:


3. Ask FreeSpaceKing to make one more remake, this time more detailed.

Now it's up to you to vote in the poll and make a diffrence! :)

TBH, the old ones are too low res for current standards IMO.

That said, I'm more interested in the prospect that SA might be starting up again?

SA was never dead. It was just on hold and a very little progress was made on it. However I'm working on bringing it back to action :)

Re: Which maps do you like better? We need your input!
I really like FreeSpaceKing's concept, it feels a lot like the SF Hydra, or Mara. But he does need to break it up a little bit, with cues from the Aeshma and Astaroth.

Honestly, FSKing's one looks like it was drawn with a crayon.

I admire his awesome map-making skills, and god knows he's made some absolutely breathtaking ones before, but this particular one doesn't appeal to me.

Re: Which maps do you like better? We need your input!
I have to say, I'm a much bigger fan of the design of the first one, even if it is low-res.  If you can get FSKing or someone else to do a touched-up version of it, that would be great.

We've got some good news! :D

FreeSpaceking decided to redo SF Naga and GVB Mirage.

If Goober agrees we'll show you the final results...

Hey cool, something's alive in here.

IMO that ship's model isn't that great---the thin bits don't work for me. But the original was decently textured.

Anywho, I vote you most make another upgrade.

 
Re: Which maps do you like better? We need your input!
I agree, upgrade. It seems the vast majority of people who actually haven't minimized the Archived Boards section agree  :lol:

The red on the first one is more Shivan-oriented, the second, shouts flaming-hot-rod-decals-pimped-by-Xhibit. :P

Upgrade it again, the FSKing's maps are good, but I think he can do better ones that will look closer to original textures, but will have normal maps and decent resolution.

If you could produce a high-res version of the old maps, that would be one mean-looking Shivan [fighter]!

Also, make sure the missile ports are triangular, not round.
