The GTD Hades by itself would be major news, combined with the release of ST:R has me completely psyched.

Now all we need is Blackwater Operations.
Spoiler:
Except for the mission where you single-handedly take on the PVD Ptah.  We took that out. :nervous:

Aww... how else am I gonna get my destroyer kills in FS1 :P

Quote from: The Return to Ross 128 - FreeSpace Wiki
Despite it's imposing name, the mission does not reveal anything of vital importance -- in other words nothing -- about the mysterious events that took place at Ross 128.

Are you going to invent something about the Shivans' mysterious arrival, or just leave it alone?

Well, even if it's still standalone, I'll make it lean on SCP when I copy the files over to my Mac. I did that for The Babylon Project, and it worked great. :D

It's good to see the Polaris pylons being used for their original purpose: a Hades drydock :)

The low poly pylons look a bit odd juxtaposed with the uber high poly Hades... :P

mmm, question VA, did you have any problems getting it into pof?

for example, i cant really manage to convince pcs2 to convert a 120k poly's model. it just doesnt save...
This took a lot of work and hair-pulling to figure out actually, and I'm still not 100% clear on what was going on. The engine can seemingly accept models that have huge polycounts (I've gotten a 230k poly test model in-game), but the catch is that there is some kind of crash bug that is limiting the total number of polys that can be in any one subobject. I say bug because this number appears to change. A lot. On one model you might be able to fit in excess of 30k polygons into one subobject, but the next you might trigger it at about 18k.

I also think the bug is originating from PCS2 (and it affected PCS1 as well) rather than FSO, because according to Wanderers analysis of one such 'dead POF' the file terminated unexpectedly, which would pretty clearly be a death-sentance for it.

it does originate from pcs 2. it either a) hangs when loading the model's smoothgroups or, when it actually loads the model, it hangs when saving to pof. either the bsp tree generator is bugged or something else is wonky.

Those are different errors to the one I was describing I think. What kind of polycounts per subobject did you have in that model?

120k per single subobject. PCS 2.0.3 imported it fine if there was no texture defined in ts7.6, but hanged when importing a .cob with a texture and any kind of smoothgroups or when saving the one with no texture. its possible that when saving into pof the bspgen has a preallocated amount of bits per subobject (and the amount of data depends on the type of polygons included...ie, smoothing data, if its planar, if its not, the rotation or such. i dont know really how pof handles that sort of data, but the pmf format handles it well). that would somewhat explain the difference between importing 18k and importing far less than it.

    The lost generation isn't born yet I would've thought.

Well, when you think of it, the lost generation should be all the Terrans who were not in Sol at the time of the jump node's collapse, so in ST:R, that is relevant.

Actually, the Lost Generation was the generation born AFTER the sol node collapsed. Those who  were not in Sol WHEN it collapsed is probably what the intro refers to as the Elders. "The Elders call us the Lost Generation."

     Actually, on second thought, probably not. Remember Bosch is part of the Lost Generation as per his monologue, and he's old enough to have served in the Great War I believe. Speaking of his monologue, maybe silent threat reborn will end at Deneb with the Hades crashing planetward to fit the intro.
