Re: The official Diaspora eyecandy thread
Took this shot from one of the quicktime VR videos they used to have on the sci fi website:



Doesn't look too ergonomic to me but it might be the throttle. This is the early version of the cockpit so they might have replaced it with something more sensible later - preferably something that can control power for each engine separately.
At any rate, I was never a fan of the thruster pedal theory. It's a fighter, not a damn car.
What happened to the keyboard for sending messages as seen during the recon of the res ship?

That there's the Mk-II Viper. Starbuck flew the Blackbird when she reconned the Resurrection Ship. So, it's in a different cockpit.

There are sadly no shadows currently in the source code.

Re: The official Diaspora eyecandy thread
Which is why we bake them into the textures where appropriate. Dynamic shadows.. not so much.

Re: The official Diaspora eyecandy thread
Those shots are absolutely stunning.  With the grainy effect added as was done on some previous shots, it'd look like a show screen-shot.  This outclasses almost every game I have ever seen - your talents are astonishing.

There - an on-topic post! :ick:

Working on some new full nebula graphics. Not happy with them yet and I'll probably rework them a bit at some point.

Re: The official Diaspora eyecandy thread
If shadows are not able to be done for the cockpit, I wonder if it would be possible to turn down the light level. As of right now it would feel like flying a hospital room, all white a sterile. Not really white here, but it feels like it lacks emotion, that it is just plain, and with it taking up so much screen space I feel that it might detract from the sheer awe that the game is going for. Just my opinion anyway.

That nebula looks ominous...
[16:57] <CommanderDJ> What prompted the decision to split WiH into acts?
[16:58] <battuta> it was long, we wanted to release something
[16:58] <battuta> it felt good to have a target to hit
[17:00] <RangerKarl> not sure if talking about strike mission, or jerking off
[17:00] <CommanderDJ> WUT
[17:00] <CommanderDJ> hahahahaha
[17:00] <battuta> hahahaha
[17:00] <RangerKarl> same thing really, if you think about it

Re: The official Diaspora eyecandy thread
While I actually agree that the cockpit textures could be a touch darker, we are already running into issues with compression artifacts. The darker your texture is, the more you see of those ugly artifacts. Now, we might consider using png instead of dds just this once but we are already kinda pushing the limits when it comes to performance and have to be really careful. Something to consider though.
