Re: BP: War in Heaven discussion
Maybe 3DMark will want to use WiH to stress-test videocards. :P

On a serious note, Massive Battle seems to run on 2-3 fps on my PC at the start, going to about 10-20 fps once the beams calm down, and I'm running a really fast rig.

edit: so no, it won't run fast on modern PC's.

Re: BP: War in Heaven discussion
I guess it runs decently on high-end rigs.

I am not 100% certain what Battuta's intent was when he created it.

Re: BP: War in Heaven discussion
I just want to say that I think WiH is really amazing; excellent work and integration of fiction into the storyline. An amazing campaign so far. I can actually see the scenes that are written about--the writing is some of the best I've seen in Freespace2 or any sci-fi fan fiction for that matter. The missions are also great. Not since Homeworld have I felt as bound up in the stories of the characters.

If you ever need help with voice acting please let me know, it's something I do in real life and would be happy to volunteer.

Thank you! We're really surprised at and grateful for how overwhelmingly positive the reaction has been.

And if you're a voice actor, yes, we absolutely 100% need you. Could you send me a PM with your email?

Re: BP: War in Heaven discussion
So you are going to put voice acting in War in Heaven too?

If so, I also offer my services.

Re: BP: War in Heaven discussion
I'd also like to volunteer for that. And if the Labouchere ever makes an appearance, don't you dare give her to anyone else to voice act :P

And now something completely different.
Will there be a glide mod, like the one that came as part of the old 3.6.12 feature pack? I just love to glide  ;)

QUESTION: Is there any way to activate the new radar symbols? I have the 3d radar, but not the icons included in 3.6.12.

Yes, download the icons... it's a separate, optional file in the 3.6.12 release thread.

Is there anyway to target the next nav buoy in the Kentauroi Race? Except for "Target under reticle"? I hate flying hair close to hard objects while having to look on my radar for the next waypoint...  :D
So far my record is, IIRC, 2:39 in the mission stats after warpout.

Shift+T twice happens to select the next buoy.

Re: BP: War in Heaven discussion
is massive battle supposed to run decently on modern computers? 

Heeeeeeeeell no.

I haven't seen such a frame-drop in a looooong, looooong time. Actually, I don't remember seeing anything similar to this at all. Still, as soon as all the Karunas were destroyed, this slideshow changed into a real 60FPS battle :)

I didn't know that the Solaris class was so powerful, in the end all 3 destroyers lived to see another battle. What kind of stats and weaponry those monsters have ? I also wonder how well they would perform against the Colossus or a Sathanas.

They're only par with a Raynor and Serkr Team could take one out without a scratch. Sometimes that battle goes the UEF's way, sometimes the GTVA's.

See stats here.

Against a Sathanas, well.... Mathematically speaking, the Sathanas will destroy the Solaris in roughly 5 seconds, if it can bring all BFReds to bear. Conversely, it will take ... uhh ... what we call a very long time for the Solaris to eat through the 1.000.000 HP the Sath has.

Against the Collossus, the same thing applies regarding the 1 million HP, but since the Collies' damage output is much lower, the Solaris has a greater chance of knocking out the Collies' beams.

Re: BP: War in Heaven discussion
Damn, speaking of the radar icons I meant to check the .vp to see what was there (Oh wait, my hard drive crashed, got to wait four months, wheee), when I first played a mission with it there didn't seem to be icons for the UEF still, though I remember the Tev fighter icons were pretty big. The fact it uses the icon for the fighter it is was awesome though.

Blue Planet: War in Heaven Tech Description

Prior to the outbreak of the UEF-GTVA war, the Solaris class Destroyers were the most controversial pieces of military hardware in use by the Federation. They represented a massive investment of resources and manpower that, according to critics, was fundamentally unnecessary. Designed by an ad-hoc committee of the Federation's best engineering and tactical thinkers and built at Mars' Bradbury Fleet Yards, these enormous warships seemed like answers to a nonexistent problem.
Had the UEF decided not to make those three Solaris destroyers. How different would the war have gone?
Urutorahappī!!

Re: BP: War in Heaven discussion
They might have had 8 or so light destroyers maybe being able to have good footing with fast response, who's to say. All I know is they DO have 3 destroyers and they seem to work well as long as the Tev's are bottlenecked.

Re: BP: War in Heaven discussion
How many Titans do the Tevs have anyways?  We see three over the course of BP, but are there any that aren't involved in the Tev-Fed war?
