Re: What are you working on?
Hmm, that makes me wonder, did anyone ever HTL the Ticonderoga from TVWP?
It's called GTC Ethon in Inferno Alliance modpack and it's based on HTL Fenris. And has different  turret setup.

...and the Ticonderoga is not from TVWP. It's independent model by Hamano. I dunno which model is older. I mean Ticonderoga or TFg Atropos.

We like to leave a few mysteries unsolved to foster a thirst for knowledge in the HLP community.

completely impractical design [✓]

if there was every any doubt who made it

Ass end isn't done. Not a big fan of those fin things myself, but it looks even worse without them there. Will probably replace em.

Also probably going to change those cargo container looking things to something more sturdy-looking for middle spar.

Re: What are you working on?
Looks like UEF heavy logistics vessel or something like this. Also looks very detailed but has suprisingly low polycount. I like it :yes:

Very odd engine placement.  I missed it initially.

We really need to stop using "It looks like a Blue Planet thingy" as a compliment... It isn't that useful. :P

The craft design is interesting and eye catching. Those interlocking parts and rotators will look very good with dynamic shadows.

Personally, I'd consider moving the engine blocks a bit rather away from the rots, they look like they would melt them. Or maybe point them outwards. (slightly diagonally away from?)

I actually wanted to avoid something like "Yeah, it definitly looks like another ship from Commonwealth fleet" which is obvious and it's obvious why he modelled it. I'm not a pleasant man :P. Federation and Commonwealth shares a lot of of features of their ships. Droid's model would fit to both.

Re: What are you working on?
There's something about it that reminds me of Dead Space's Ishimura.  Wouldn't be the first DE ship to do that.

I quite like it.

Re: What are you working on?
It looks like some sort of large freighter/logistics vessel, or a colony ship. Interesting design.

You mean the Longsword/Stiletto, right? Because the human battleship is curvy and angled, all Battlestar Galactica-looking.

Actually, it kinda gives me a Kissaki Syndicate vibe.

<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!?

Re: What are you working on?
Ok... I'm going to break the trend here with WIP by going from video to audio.

If anyone remembers, I created a small new pack of sounds which can be found in this thread...

http://www.hard-light.net/forums/index.php?topic=88330.0

At some point in the near future, I will restart my audio quest and begin adding to it. Also, I would like people to note that I can do music as well. So what I will ask is if anyone has any requests please feel free to PM me with these details:-

  • What sound you want i.e. single shot weapon, beam weapon, thruster sounds etc...
  • Sound length (which is critical depending on what your aim for the sound is)
  • A brief description of the sound i.e. fast repeating sound, high energy weapon, impact shots etc...

As for music requests, my experience is with creating electronic music, predominantly drum and bass, but I wouldn't mind having a go at some more atmospheric stuff. Again, PM me with details and let me know what kind of feeling you are going for i.e tension, calm, chaos etc... as well as song length so I have something to work with.

For Betrayal, I will get round to making that sound for you soon (hopefully) that you requested from Iron Sky. Please could you let me know if you needed that weapon split into components or if you are happy with it as a single consistent weapon i.e always fires in 6 second bursts.




I do not feel... I think!

Time for some cloak and dagger tactics...


All Lua driven, and theoretically supports non-player ships too, though getting the AI to use it in a semi-competent fashion... is a another question.

(Hey Gee1337, I could use some cloak/decloaking sounds...)

Re: What are you working on?
Axem, is that using the built-in FSO cloaking feature? I assume the script is handling simulated energy, auto-decloaks, and whether or not the AI can target you. Definitely cool... and I fear to think of how this will be used in JAD.  :shaking:

Re: What are you working on?
You are very perceptive, mjn! Yes, the script handles the effect, the ship flags, the energy and methods that can "kick" you out of cloak. There's a config file that governs all those rules for anyone who wants to tweak things. And while it is written JAD, it's generic enough for anyone else to use.
