I didn't really say it looked fake or anything. It just... looks like floor tile. *shrugs*
Yea, I just wanted to point out that the background is actually some copper plated wall instead of floor tiles, even if it looks like that :D

Ah, nice touch. I just had a thought that you could use Dradis-like icons for the single/multi buttons? The shape is identical regardless of the type of fightercraft, but it distinguishes between a single ship and a wing.
The Viper dradis icon is a rather complex shape to be used on the buttons. The details get so small it might be a bit hard to actually see what the icon is supposed to represent.

It wouldn't hurt to see what it looks like, and it might actually work rather well.

Also, as to the comment about cutting the corners on the FS2 arrows, that might actually work ;)

Fine, I'll do it, but it takes a day or two since I'm busy at work and rendering this thing take a while :P

I didn't say you had to use pure gray, it's just that it seems too.. perfect. There are are plenty of free texture sites out there, you might try looking around a bit.

Edit: Hey, how about this: http://s209.photobucket.com/albums/bb317/Tyrkeyz/?action=view&current=metal_design_8240015.jpg
With some tweaks I think it could be just what you're looking for. Gives off a nice BSG Vibe too.

Hmm, I like C-Fodders better but thats my opinion

just has a "Battlestar" look to it, by that I mean the interior, like I'm on the flight deck, looking at some screen scouring it for my name

The word 'Yo' is only ever to be used as a singular greeting.
It is considered an insult to destroy a perfectly acceptable greeting by misuse. A 'Yo-Yo' is a toy spun from the index finger by small children and enthusiasts,
any such use as a greeting will result in prompt reprimand by any member of the 'African-American' or 'Sri-Lankans-who-think-they're-black' community

I agree, Cannonfodder's looks much better IMHO. Looks like a wall on a Battlestar, rather than a section of pottery.

Ugh, I've lost all perspective on if the changes I make to the image are an improvement or not. I'm gonna call it 98% done, and wont be making any major adjustements to this menu any longer. I've spent enough of time with it as is.



Comments are still welcome, but I think it's time to move on.

Hey, very cool!..  and I do like the lighning a lot.

Also, you guys might consider as background that familiar and well known Galactica's mechanical litany.

Once more; keep up the good work! ;)

The dirt does not need a blur. However, all of the dirt layers in the GUI should be reduced by at least 30% or so in transparency.

No. Trust me, I spent a lot of time trying to do just that and it just ended up looking more like concrete than metal. The dirt and grime are what makes the whole thing interesting to look at.
