And then...there was progress
Visible progress that is.  Just today, we got a Strike Cruiser in game.

And soon there'll be a mission that features it... on SVN.

(Hoping to kick out a playable version tonight)

I committed the said mission. I left a one/two-minute-long pause in the middle of the mission to let our Honorable Project Leader fly around the Strike Cruiser to show the model, as opposed to the forces that are striving to destroy it.

This makes me happy, sirs...

When something is finally released, you'll have done a truly remarkable feat: produced an actual Star Wars game since post-2000.  :eek:

My question now is, what's with the bounding box about the cruiser?

Re: And then...there was progress
It's the HUD target box isn't it? Awesome HUD by the way.

Re: And then...there was progress
The HUD target box isn't properly surrounding the ship there, there may still be an issue with the all new HUD code and how it calculates that, or with the model's collision box.

Re: And then...there was progress
The bounding box thing is probably because detail-0 itself is pretty small and apparently the bounding box doesn't take subobjects into account. Easily fixable in the model.

Re: And then...there was progress
Seconded on the engine part, how do you get the glow to shine on the hull?, is that engine rendered or you painted it over the texture?

Re: And then...there was progress
It's pre-rendered on the glowmap.  Looks pretty dang good though.

Re: And then...there was progress
Strike cruiser looks good. Hope you don't mind me making some comments on the HUD, though - this is a subject that actually falls within the realm of my profession, so I find it hard not to go analyze it :) I realize it's probably not final, so if the following comments aren't helpful just ignore them.
First and foremost, I don't think that this "let's get rid of the stuff around the reticle and move it all down" thing works - it's way too busy at the bottom. There's too much information just bunched up on top of each other, making it hard to discern where one type of information ends and another begins at a quick glance. I would suggest grouping each kind of information together logically, and giving the groups some space between them so it's easier to make out what's what. For instance, I'd move the G,S,E gauges to the right of the shield status display, not separate them by it. The auto target, auto speed and similar icons are pretty big; decreasing their size a bit so there's some distance between them and the rest of the hud elements would help. The speed gauge should probably be moved somewhere else, if necessary back to the left of the reticle. The shield icons are placeholders I assume, they're identical to fs2 ones. Also, the radar display looks kind of weird without some sort of an outline to define it's borders, so I'd suggest adding one.
