Re: BP: Age of Aquarius - The Director's Cut discussion
Here's an odd one for you. The loading screen for the intro cutscene (as are all others) appears to be in a different fov for the actual mission. At first I thought it was my screen resolution but i've been through the acceptable standards ie 1024x768 etc.
 
What's the default as H don't recall ever changing it.

Re: BP: Age of Aquarius - The Director's Cut discussion
What did you guys think of the wingmen personas - Corey, Taylor, and the 'secret' one?

Well, we do know that he's the son of Mackie from Derelict, or vice-versa... ;)


Goober5000 was pretty instrumental in getting many of our voice actors in place, simply because he helped point us towards the right places to look. I think he deserves special thanks.

ST:R was delayed because Goober had to learn how to pull the strings. Since he's already done it for ST:R, he would know how to do this one better. :)

Now, about some things I forgot to mention in my post on page one...

I really, really love the in-game cutscenes. The hell with them being long ... you cannot get more moving cutscenes than the ones in Blue Planet. The Lucifer cutscene takes the cake, really. When I heard the music and saw it zooming and panning out to the firefight, I was so close to tearing and screaming, "OH GOD NO".

The Vishnan voices are excellent. It sounds very Vasudan in several places (even though it's all normal English with audio effects).

The only jarring bit is that I can more or less discern trained voice actors from HLP voices. The Beis, for instance, sound very professional (which is probably fine since they're Commander and Admiral), but when you add the Colonol's more down-to-earth voice into the mix, it's a bit ... off. You would think that the people operating one of the finest ships in the GTVA would sound pretty similar to the ones ordering it about.

Whoever did the voice for Iwakura sounded like she did the female voice for the Ancient monologues in FS1 too. That's a compliment, mind you.

Here's an odd one for you. The loading screen for the intro cutscene (as are all others) appears to be in a different fov for the actual mission. At first I thought it was my screen resolution but i've been through the acceptable standards ie 1024x768 etc.

I believe it's 0.55, but I use 0.39 and it looks just fine.

Re: BP: Age of Aquarius - The Director's Cut discussion
Regarding opening loading screen mismatch, the fov of the opening cutscene got changed as one of the very last commits before release. Somehow it managed to escape the attention of the dev staff so that we could get a replacement image, but it was deemed to be a minor issue and easily fixable.

Re: BP: Age of Aquarius - The Director's Cut discussion
Yep it really only reset the counter and overwrote my old screenshot and I just didn't notice, because I only looked at the last two....

Anyway taking the screenshots with Fraps worked too.
The clipping seems to work correctly for most of the ship. Behind the position seen in the shots it certainly does, but further to the front of the Keeper I could even go so deep into the keeper that nothing of my spacesuit showed anymore.

And to think I only noticed this was because I got a bit mischiefious and (succesfully ;) ) tried to make the missionaries that escroted me, crash into the keeper.

Re: BP: Age of Aquarius - The Director's Cut discussion
I was wondering from a technical FREDing point of view: Why did you guys go with 'camera ships' for cutscenes? Cause you know, there are always people like me that will test the impossible and do Shift+o in cutscenes for example :P  
"Oooh a Erinyes camera host, I wish I could take it with me"  :lol:

Edit: I also noticed that some ships have incorrect data in the ship selection screen. Like the perseus only has '2 gun mounts'?

Eh? Perseus has TWO gun mounts. Gun mounts and gun points are two different things. Besides, BP doesn't change loadout descriptions.

Mouhahahaha

Very last mission, the Planet Killer theme from HW2. :yes: Gotcha. You can't hide any Homeworld feature from me.

By the way I loved the Vishnan voices.

People are stupid, therefore anything popular is at best suspicious.

We can't risk losing our tap badges.
 
 
So it appears I can keep nehru alive beyond his first appearance mission?

The Perseus has two gun BANKS and 4 gun MOUNTS. The description is wrong.
Check out the description of the herc 2, it has 4 gun mounts in the data (which is correct). The myrm has 6 gun mounts, 2 gun banks,  the aurora has 6 gun mounts (4, 2 aka, 2 banks)

also: TAP member combo chain!  :P

Re: BP: Age of Aquarius - The Director's Cut discussion
This thread is for discussion of the voice-acted version of Age of Aquarius.

Before the discussion gets going though, I'd like to thank everyone who was involved in this project: the dev staff, voice actors and those who submitted their auditions, and the beta testers. You've all helped turn a one-person fan campaign into a pretty damn cool mod, and it's been a pleasure.

Special thanks must go to General Battuta, Rian and The E for their tireless work in co-coordinating the voice acting.

Firstly i must say....YEEEESSSSS......secondly.....THANK YOUTHANK YOUTHANK YOUTHANK YOUTHANK YOU....and lastly.....God Bless us every one.....
Back to reality the mod was already great the voice acting added a little more chutzpah to it. And i like the new ship textures. The Temeraire looks great especially since you can notice the small rivets and metal texture designs (more sci-fi).

I was just wonderig the voice for taylor or corey (not sure which one)...didn't that person do the voice acting for the Babylon 5 Achen training missions ?!?!?!

Remember last time someone proposed changes to be made for little things like this? Small fixes? Yeah, that was some really nice ****storm  :lol:
But I don't see why BP wouldn't adjust minor things like this?

Re: BP: Age of Aquarius - The Director's Cut discussion
The cost/benefit analysis for going through all the retail ship entries and adding corrective entries to the BP .tbms was not favorable.

 
Re: BP: Age of Aquarius - The Director's Cut discussion
Hehe. The Neruh's scream in mission 2 makes Blue Planet "filmly"  ;) . Great VA.
Working on the Freespace 2 spanish translation. In case you want to play the game in castillian, click here. You'll need some spanish there, though, sorry :p

If you want your mod/campaign translated to spanish, please PM me or send me an e-mail message.

I could translate from spanish to english too, if you want, but it wouldn't be perfect, not at all. For spanish->english translations comes better an english native with spanish knowledge.

Re: BP: Age of Aquarius - The Director's Cut discussion
Here's a suggestion. How about making a custom mission featuring the UEFg Karuna? The ship forms backbone of the UEF fleet, isn't anyone curious what the ship is actually capable of? ;)

(Though Karuna's point defense turret is not what it should be because fs2_open 3.6.10 does not support $Burst. This is corrected in the 3.6.12 Feature Pack.)

It certainly is capable of knocking a good 40% hullintegrity out of the Orestes with it's debris  :p at least it did on my playthrough.

It won't sound the same without Darius driving it.
 
 
But I might have a go. Nice extra mainhall by the way :yes:
