Re: The official Diaspora eyecandy thread
I love it. My mouth dropped open a long time ago with the whole project, all involved. And enjoyed the child that you never see. Not to
mention the very sounds of the wireless communications. I wish I understood how to tweak out the codex and play with the quality to
parallel and equal what I was hearing in the headsets that I use.  I can hardly wait for this to be completed.  Keep up the nice work
guys.  I wonder if Teamspeak 3 can do it? Hmmmm?

The girl is still a subject of debate and I already have a version done without it. Either way you'll only see it if you play at resolutions like 1920x1200.

Re: The official Diaspora eyecandy thread
The FS2_Open engine supports cockpits so any game using the engine can have them but they are a lot of work so many don't bother with them.

Probably stands for something, like Tardis :)

E.g. Dynamic Radiological Alarm Detection and Information System

Flipside, I totally think you hit the nail on the head with your answer about what does dradis means.

^Well that's a pretty good explanation, certainly better than the actual canon Direction RAnge DIStance.

Re: The official Diaspora eyecandy thread
I also agree.  For a moment I had the feeling that you may have had a peek in one of those binders in the CIC with the corners cut off.
P.S. Can hardly wait to see this program running on my computer. Really looking fantastic guys. Hope I don't die of depression waiting
on it's release though.

I'm sure someone can be talked into taking some sooner or later. We'll have to see what we haven't shown you pictures of already. :D

Re: The official Diaspora eyecandy thread
O.K., you're officially killing me now...

That having been said, to quote Valerie Perrine, "I know I'm gonna get wrapped in the mouth for this...", but the color palette feels too warm and cartoony. If it's a limitation of the lighting in the engine or the engine's original "lens filter" then that's that. If not, I can understand why you all would want to differentiate from any work you might have done in the past, but to me, it just doesn't look like Moore's Galactica. Have you guys seen the Futuremark teaser vid they dropped a couple of days ago?http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FXsLRmKCwGQ&feature=player_embedded  To me, that's a lot closer to the mark. Again, one man's opinion.

So uhh...  does playing devil"s advocate mean that I can't download when you guys are ready(he said with a Michael Jeter guffaw and grin)?

Re: The official Diaspora eyecandy thread
I'm assuming you're talking about the third segment, which looks a lot more colorful and bright than what is shown on Diaspora.

The screens would be much darker if it had no emissive lighting tagged.

Re: The official Diaspora eyecandy thread
The warm colours seen in some of those new screenshots are actually the result of the lighting, not the actual colours of the ships themselves. And the lighting varies based both on what is happening in the mission (explosions, for example, will light things up) and based on what type of star the mission takes place near: Red star = red light, yellow star = yellow light, and so on. In a setting around, say, a white or a blue star, the colours would be far colder than those seen here.

Re: The official Diaspora eyecandy thread
Also bear in mind that a lot of show is grainy film footage meant to look like exterior cameras. Looks great in cutscenes but it would look odd for the universe to look like that from a Viper cockpit. :)

You can always let people know how to adjust saturation in post-processing.
Long time ago, you see, there was this thing called the VBB and... oh, nevermind.
