Is it possible to see the cockpit from the inside? I thought it was possible with one of Venom/Nico's Perseus models, but half an hour of searching gave me nothing.

yeah, but search is broken right now anyway. Try going back several pages in the SCP forum and finding the thread(s) on visible cockpits.

Add "show ship" to the ship flags.  And while the eyepoint is at the pilot's eye in this thing, there wasn't room to make the pilot actually able to see out; the first cross of the canopy will be directly in front of you.

I actually tried to make it work, but it just wasn't happening with this model.

Actually I ran into this while doing the Apollo. Seems the forward canopy strut on the in-game model was removed for the cutscene so you could get a good look a the pilot, and vice versa. I think there's precedent enough there that we can remove some canopy supports if we want actual visible cockpits.

Looks great minus one complaint:
The blue lines in the glowmap have rough edges, so it doesn't look as good as the old one in a low light scene...

I'm assuming you're refering to the animated glowmap.  That map is garbage, and it doesn't line up correctly with the new map or the mesh itself.  I -highly- recommend deactivating that map before using this mesh, and Turambar has provided a DDS static glowmap to be used until we can get a matching animated glowmap for the new base maps.

A minor (though work intensive and troublesome thing to do if it ain't so...) thing:

Does the main map have inactive glows? (Ergo glassy, dark tubes in place of the blue parts.)
This ship would be marvelous for the use of activate/deactivate-glow sexp in stealth missions.

It does not... yet.  Removing the blue from the standard maps shouldn't be difficult I don't think, especially if Turambar still has the photoshop file.  The maps are still a bit of a WIP.

Taylor's going to kill me for abusing the .eff code :p

I updated the zip, but it's minor so don't waste your time downloading it again if you already have it.  If you do have it, add this eff file (right-click, save-as) to your data/maps directory.  It's a hack to get the static glowmap to override the animated glow in mv_adveffects.vp until a new animated one gets made.

Grr. how dare you steal my cockpit glass texture  ;)

Anwyays, she looks quite good, but that link to the new Eff isn't working

Great job on a great model!!!

I would've darkened out the glowing parts in the main map though, so the ship looks nice should some fredder decide to turn off the glowmaps, or should we get code that turns off glows on debris.
actualy, mabye not.

Fair enough, since that glass texture is used on the Ares too ;)

The link's been fixed (it's a glowmap, duh).  And Turambar said he'd darken the stripes at some point.  Probably around the same time as getting to that animated glowmap...

What if one doesn't have the mv_adveffects.vp?:p

& BTW, that is one cool looking pegasus.  Haven't yet tried in game (been to busy messing with BSG stuff) but it looks great.

It's a 21 character ASCII file for a "1-frame animation".  Does it matter? :p

The old animated map was an ANI, done by lightspeed back in the day IIRC.  Unfortunately it doesn't line up perfectly with the new map, so that's why I posted up an override.
