Re: The official Diaspora eyecandy thread
DaBrain seems to have taken it into his head that you haven't seen enough of the Bolitho and took a bunch of pictures of it. Somehow I suspect you'll probably agree he was correct. ;)











He also took a few pictures mainly showcasing our new WIP explosions. They're still not done yet but they look pretty enough to show you.

Re: The official Diaspora eyecandy thread
Very, very nice :)

2 inane thoughts:
* Wouldn't the Bolitho spin around crazily whilst firing those relatively massive guns? :P
* I want the weapon that gives the 'explosion' in the last picture! ;)

Re: The official Diaspora eyecandy thread
aaaaaaaaaaaaaaa

My God, that's astounding.

I hope you've still got DaBrain's awesome blue-flare nuke detonation? The one that looks like the nukes from the show?

 
Re: The official Diaspora eyecandy thread
Those shots are utterly stunning, amazing work!

The models look so incredibly solid.

Re: The official Diaspora eyecandy thread
Really amazing looking screens...just great work. I especially like the one with the basestar in the foreground, and an explosion in the distance; looks like it could be pre-rendered.

Incredible!  The explosions are especially good.  If you can find a way of giving the MkII's canopy a touch more transparency, then this is almost as good as the show,and seen in motion will be stunning. :eek2:

Re: The official Diaspora eyecandy thread
The canopy isn't transparent cause there's no pilot in there yet and we don't want that to be completely obvious :p When the pilot is added the canopy will be changed. :D

Re: The official Diaspora eyecandy thread
While we're nitpicking, is there any way to make the missile trails bigger and richer?

Do note that we're only showing placeholders that are passably good looking. We have a few real uglies as well that you won't see until the finished versions :D

Yeah, those are going to be replaced. Along with a host of other placeholder effects we're using right now.

Re: The official Diaspora eyecandy thread
These images are just glorious.  How can you wanna shoot something that's so beautiful?  If you don't make the models at least a tiny bit sucky I won't be able to hit anything.  Throw me a frakkin' bone, here.

By the way ( and now more than less seriously ) those engine glows do look very promising. BTW, the moddb's video has been taken in-game?.

Re: The official Diaspora eyecandy thread
No, that was prerendered to show off the ship some time before we got the model in-game. And in my opinion it actually looks better in game than in that video (and looking at DaBrain's screenshots I suspect you'll agree :)).

Re: The official Diaspora eyecandy thread
Yup, the Bolitho looks awesome ;) . Those grey smoke trails looks good too, although the fater/denser they get rendered in the game then the better, IMHO.. :)

Re: The official Diaspora eyecandy thread
My first thought was " hey cool new screens, but why would they pre-render a scene...?", 'cause the Bolli screenshots looks like taken from a CGI scene.
And the new explosion... :eek2:

Re: The official Diaspora eyecandy thread
Fantastic screens.

My favorite are the red planet with that bomb-like ship on the foreground. That planet ROCKS! Perfect texturing and modeling/lighting, whoever did that, I worship you :P

Second favorite shot, is the Mark 7 flying toward an exploding Base Star. Those explosions look different than all other explosions. They look just like the ones from the show. Are those in-game or pre-rendered?

Finally, the Mark II looks goregous, except I feel the cockpit windows are too dark. They need to be more transparent and show the interior of the cockpit more :P

But really fantastic work guys. I cant wait to see some Battlestars! What's the word on those?
