What's with already done materials?
Will you publish your models/skyboxes ect.

Project is dead, but models are pretty good and it could be used by other moders/freders :)

Re: What's with already done materials?
Yes! I'm sure many people would just absolutely hug your stuff. I've looked at your tech database, and I see some QUALITY stuff. I cant believe you actually have TANKS in FreeSpace! I was impressed. Good job, guys.

And you are dead right?

Re: What's with already done materials?
You could have not typed that last sentence...

Anyway, I am shocked and saddened by this turn of events (I was like where is the 158th section? Archived,WTF???)

I had long looked forward to this project's completeion (not just because I voiced 2-3 missions for it).

I agree that if possible, could whoever has the dev files please consider a release as a public dump. That is if you can get a consensus from reachable team members...

My sincere condolences on this event...

Re: What's with already done materials?
Yea, I was really impressed with the stuff you guys put together for this mod. I was hoping that at least something would've eventually been released.

I for one would love to see these MODs released, too.

Re: What's with already done materials?
For what it's worth, I'm perfectly fine with releasing the models (hell, I can release the untextured meshes any time I suppose. I modelled 90% of them.)

You can release stuff without condemning the MOD to death. That's the point. ;)

Mikhael -If you would do that, it would be great! (also it would be the only real reply since I asked the question nearly a year ago). I'm sure someone in the community would eventually re-texture them at some point or we coudl do it ourselves if they are uv mapped already. (simply try new textures in mapped material slots).

I would be curious for all the other resources you might have access to also (effects, maps, ect) if you can get ahold of whoever you need to for final authority, or lacking that as last active member take charge yourself as defactor leader-community rep then?

A 158th modpack would be awesome like was done for: SAH, OTT and also DaBrain...


Mobius - As for condeming a mod "to death", look at where it is now the Archived boards kicked off the Hosted list. It pains me to say it, but aside from deletion it can't get much deaded than that.

Re: What's with already done materials?
I have not said I would release the assets. I will consider it. I will also make an attempt to contact Narol and Spicious about it.

If I do release any assets that I have in my possession, I would be releasing only Lightwave models. There would be no UVs, no textures. The Meshes include LODs, Shields and debris, but that's about it.

There are a few models that I can release unambiguously and unfettered. The SF Naga, for example, predates my involvement with the 158th and I consider [the mesh] mine free and clear.

My point is that releasing stuff doesn't necessarily mean condemning the MOD to death, at least not in a definitive way.

There's nothing wrong in releasing the models and continue with the MOD(should it regain life, it happened before), possibly in a second moment :)
