Re: The official Diaspora eyecandy thread
I think the team is still hard a work on the next release, "End of Line" Worthy of Survival.  I for one am much more interested in this additional content than in them taking the time to make this already gorgeous game prettier.  In the heat of battle I don't have time to notice the graphical difference anyway.  I play for fun, not for screenshots.  :)

Re: The official Diaspora eyecandy thread
Deathspeed is correct. At the moment the main priority is the missions.

But that doesn't mean that we won't try upgrading the models at some point.

Re: The official Diaspora eyecandy thread
Oh wow that looks good. BSG's aesthetic always looked appealing, but those last two shots really take the cake. These could be part of the show if it wasn't for the dead-center focal point.

Oooooooooooh.

Re: The official Diaspora eyecandy thread
That new Cylon fighter (Interceptor maybe?) looks great, it's elegant and appears to be fast at the same time.  Also nice comparison shot with the two battlestars. Finally something to fill the gap between giant carrier capships and rather small frigates. Can't wait to launch from her tubes  ;7

Re: The official Diaspora eyecandy thread
The Cylon Acolyte is actually bigger than the Bolitho. It's more of a destroyer while the Bolitho is a frigate.

But yes, like the Bolitho it's there to fill in the gaps between the fighters and the massive capital ships.

These look amazing. It always amazes me that FSO is capable of looking that good.  :yes:

soooo, any chance of new ships to pilot aside from the Mk 7 and the raptor? Fan made Starfighters  perhaps? Did anyone like, model the mk 2 cockpit yet?

Still waiting on cockpits unfortunately. When we get some work done on cockpits it will give us quite a few new ships actually.

Hawt! I take it this is with PBR? The lighting on the Valkyrie is gorgeous!

I see you're challenging niffiwan for the "king of the TC screenshots" title.

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!

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