schrödinbug (noun) - a bug that manifests itself in running software after a programmer notices that the code should never have worked in the first place.

When you gaze long into BMPMAN, BMPMAN also gazes into you.

"I am one of the best FREDders on Earth" -General Battuta

<Aesaar> literary criticism is vladimir putin

<MageKing17> "There's probably a reason the code is the way it is" is a very dangerous line of thought. :P
<MageKing17> Because the "reason" often turns out to be "nobody noticed it was wrong".
(the very next day)
<MageKing17> this ****ing code did it to me again
<MageKing17> "That doesn't really make sense to me, but I'll assume it was being done for a reason."
<MageKing17> **** ME
<MageKing17> THE REASON IS PEOPLE ARE STUPID
<MageKing17> ESPECIALLY ME

<MageKing17> God damn, I do not understand how this is breaking.
<MageKing17> Everything points to "this should work fine", and yet it's clearly not working.
<MjnMixael> 2 hours later... "God damn, how did this ever work at all?!"
(...)
<MageKing17> so
<MageKing17> more than two hours
<MageKing17> but once again we have reached the inevitable conclusion
<MageKing17> How did this code ever work in the first place!?

<@The_E> Welcome to OpenGL, where standards compliance is optional, and error reporting inconsistent

<MageKing17> It was all working perfectly until I actually tried it on an actual mission.

<IronWorks> I am useful for FSO stuff again. This is a red-letter day!
* z64555 erases "Thursday" and rewrites it in red ink

<MageKing17> TIL the entire homing code is held up by shoestrings and duct tape, basically.

Lore wise, there are only three frigates the Paris Heavy Frigate, Charon Light Frigate, and the Stalwart Light Frigate. There is no Remembrance class light frigate for that is, as the URL suggests, a non-canon vessel.

Re: What are you working on?
This is what i am working on in my limited spare time, a reimagining of the old INF Bellephron, i always liked the design.


Some parts i didnt like on the original the bridge and the engines on the bottom. So redesigned the bridge part and i just haven't added the bottom box engines as i cannot get anything to look good, unless anyone has any suggestions as i could do with some.

I always thought that that design needed some more aft ventral structure to counterbalance the down-slope of the "hood".

Re: What are you working on?
i am writing a campaing 7 years after capella., with a lot of Civilian things, Gas Mining. and a lot of Lore  Pirates and things like that., "Derelict" inspired me a lot

 but i am trying to do it unique. ( something difficult to get because all things i think are very hard to get in reality, so trying to be minimalist in ).

is going to be Voice acted by my friends and am going to start today performing some eschematic to the missions. 

 
Re: What are you working on?
Actually i am still involved in a german translation project for FreeSpace Port, FreeSpace 2 (mainly misspelling corrections) and a translation of the Cold Element and Silent Threat: Reborn Branch.

Also i think about to write a new short Christmas story within my Freespace: Dark Abyss Refallen series. Because there were some pairings during the eleven seasons i can use for a lovely christmas story :).


Also i try to convert one of my novels of the mentioned series into a playable campaign. The novel i use for this is maybe perfect for a fredding noob like me, because i can reuse some of FreeSpace 2 retail missions, with only few edits, for the parts of the story that takes place 2367. But there are also some missions taking place during 2378 and 2383.
Shivan here, Shivan there, Shivan everywhere.

Re: What are you working on?
Experimenting with Shivan ship models to make them look less Shivan:

Original



Current



My Experiment



Am thinking, I wanna keep them looking demonic but it's really hard so I may need to steer away from that...

Re: What are you working on?




That model is giving me a beating. Terrible geometry, plenty of stairs-like plates which are totally useless under the texture. A real challenge, maybe a tit too hard for a beginner. But I'm not going to stop :P I will finish this. In 3D view you can see textures in 1024x1024 resolution because I don't have a premium account on P3d :/

Re: What are you working on?
I am making a mission where you must protect a space princess and her fleet while the princess waits for pancakes to be delivered as angry gentrified Shivans attack for revenge. As each friendly capital ship dies, they lose morale. Once morale (starting at 100) goes gets below 25 they'll start to leave one by one. If morale gets below 0, they'll turn hostile and try to take their fustrations out on the flagship (which doesn't do a thing the entire battle).

Why yes it is for Just Another Day, why do you ask?

Trying to get the hang of making albedo/reflect textures for the PBR builds.

Re: What are you working on?
Currently working on a campaign set in the beginning of a war between the Vasudan Imperium and the Galactic Terran Alliance. I plan for it to be fully voice acted and (with correct permissions) show off some of the community ships, as I have only just started modding FS2 and have no idea how to model, texture, or turret.

Re: What are you working on?
Sounds great :D

Just, a friendly piece of advice: Do not let missing voice acting get in the way of releasing the campaign. Decent VA jobs always take longer than you'd think, and getting people to voice stuff is infinitely easier when it's a case of making a good release better.
