Re: A celebration of Freespace
I have my ambient factor at 0, yet I didn't had any colision problems aside from the aforementioned antennae (which is why I made sure that all glowpoints on them work as they should).

...how? Most missions in WiH have 0 ambient light, which means the ships should actually be pitch black when facing away from the sun, aside from their glow maps. If you're right up against a ship, there should be no way you can see it if you aren't looking for a lack of stars.

Re: A celebration of Freespace
I thought I did make sure that antennae on Steve-O's ships all have proper glowpoints.

they do.

except their normals are mostly ****ed so you can only see them if you're inside the ship.
yeah you should check that.

imo, just get rid of glowpoint normals...works fine most of the time.

Re: A celebration of Freespace
I did just that (aside from adding glowpoints), I thought that this change made it to the release. All normals on them were actually pointing down, but I'm sure I fixed it at some point.

Re: A celebration of Freespace
they didn't
though the Sanctus in MULTI has them fixed, along with LODs and Smoothing (as well as a 1-2 texture reduction).

I checked the Narayana in WiH and an old version of the optirayana that I had around, and normals orientation were fixed on the optimized one.

Re: A celebration of Freespace
Yeah, but they're certainly broken in the original release which is what most people have.

I repeat...

Hold a while. The pictures a while ago - the one with the sunset, sea, etc. Where do you download them?

...yes, because those pics really caught my eyes!

BTW that cloaking thing is very interesting. Something that's new for the SCP.
With the rapid increase of FS fan-made campaigns, we're giving the GTVA a harder time with more violence and genocide.

It's not no lighting, it's good lighting! :P
And I think you proved your point with WoD.

 
Re: A celebration of Freespace
My first (fighter) models ever.  They're for a TC I'm working on (ambitious, I know.  Hopefully, I'll be able to finish). 












 
Re: A celebration of Freespace
Wow, those look great, BlasterNT. I'd say keep up the great work, and even if you never finish the TC, I'm sure many would love to use your ships.
I'm all about getting the most out of games, so whenever I discover something very strange or push the limits, I upload them here:

Progress in our world will be progress to more pain."

Looking cool BlasterNT  :nod:

And should you ever feel the need to cry like a little girl because working on a TC is too much work. You can use my shoulder, I understand your pain  :p
It's also okay if they are manly tears

Re: A celebration of Freespace
Thanks for all the comments! 

And yeah, these fighters take ~3 days of almost full day work to go from concept art to what you see there--I shudder to think how long capital ships are going to take. 

Unfortunately, the Terran (grey and blue) fighters are all rather large (~40 m length), and have considerably more weaponpoints than your average FreeSpace fighter, so I'm afraid adapting them for other mods is going to take some work.

Oh, beastly. :D

Depends on how long full-day work is in your view. Three days for getting a model built, UV'd, textured, and put in-game, is record breaking as far as I've seen.
