Title: Asset Release - ORGT Pluto
Post by: Nyctaeus on March 13, 2016, 04:56:54 pm
Flowers grow, lovers mate, politicians lie, beer end...

Wait, what? Why beer end?! This is one of the thing that should never happen! Meh, I wish I have a cure for that :P. But instead I have one for some other issue - lack of cool models. To be precise, I am the cure.
So I have something for you, guys. This time, not a warship. Meet the Pluto Gas Tanker (http://www.hard-light.net/forums/index.php?topic=91673.new#new)!

Want some ship data? We're working on dedicated FSWiki section for Exile related content. For now you can get familiar with three of new ships from our modpack - Agneya (http://www.hard-light.net/wiki/index.php/ORFA_Agneya), Solomon (http://www.hard-light.net/wiki/index.php/EFFg_Solomon) and Pluto (http://www.hard-light.net/wiki/index.php/ORGT_Pluto)!

And I can assure you, this is not everything that we have. Oh no :P

Into the Dark Waters is now in it's last and final stage of development before the release :D

It's been a while since the last big update.

After some time of inactivity, development of Exile is back at full speed. We decided to switch our narration style to more character-driven, including much more plot details in form of fiction viewer entries, introduce new characters and include much more focus on the other side of the conflict - Earth Federated Nations.

We also decided to rework some missions, change their style etc. Here is some mystery screenshot from completly rewritten M01 called The Eclipse:

EFC Viscount joined the Earth Federated Nations fleet and it's now second cruiser class alongside with Evangelist. Simple model with just 12k polys, but it's fits general EFN theme. Original model by SolCommand buffed by myself a little bit.

i realy wanna try this mod but i don't find any downloads for it. Still in some closed beta or so?

Post by: Col.Hornet on February 17, 2017, 10:03:14 am
Apart from a few ships we've released so far the mod is still in the making (we are now testing the missions and many of them are already polished). I don't know how about the rest of the team but I'm so far stalled by the university stuff  (I almost graduated. And when I do I'll have to find a job and that won't help my texturing efforts either but... no choice :P)

Title: Re: Exile - News
Post by: Nyctaeus on February 17, 2017, 11:03:21 am
Sadly, Into the Dark Waters is still in final stages of development. Modpack is fully ready, missions are 95% done. Our main FREDer is resting after university stuff.

We're on the last lap anyway. Very long last lap, but I guarantee the final effort is worth the waiting :P.

Must...be...notified...on...progress. Have...to...post...something...here ;)

Hope job search is going well and already is finished
Title: Re: Exile - News
Post by: Nyctaeus on July 25, 2017, 06:40:52 am
It is :D

And the progress is going on straight to the release. We started integration EFD Talos into the missions to replace older destroyer. Everything is tested and working properly. We need to change some things in 2-3 missions, and Into the Dark Waters will be ready.

Added pre-release notes about gameplay features, to make Exile more instinctive. Go ahead and introduce with them in introduction thread (http://www.hard-light.net/forums/index.php?topic=91646.0). They are in the first post, below main mod features.

So... Your chances just incrased to 100%. Don't ask me why :P

Into the Dark Waters is officially finished and released. We hope you find our campaign worth playing. Have fun!
We also want to apologize for neverending delays and thank for trust of HLP Administration. This project was in-development for year longer than we expected, so we're glad that we're finally done :).

v1.1 is now released.
Title: Re: Exile - News
Post by: Nyctaeus on December 01, 2017, 09:44:39 am
Exile 1.0.1 should now be available on Knossos :)
Title: Re: Exile - News
Post by: Nyctaeus on April 04, 2018, 07:01:44 am
It's been a while...

Patch 1.2 is almost ready. This one, called "The English Update" features conversion of ItDW from polgrish to english [literally :D ], some model updates, new effects and tons of fixes :]. It will be available for standard download and via Knossos in a few days,
Title: Re: Exile - News
Post by: Nyctaeus on April 10, 2018, 07:27:08 pm
The English Update is released on Knossos [as 1.0.3]. Especially for those who don't understand polgrish. Standard, non-knossos download should be updated tomorrow.
Title: Re: Exile - News
Post by: Nightmare on April 10, 2018, 07:48:03 pm
why do knossos users get preffered treatment i dont have it~

And BTW, I thought that Knossos also provides links that could be just posted here.
Title: Re: Exile - News
Post by: Nyctaeus on April 10, 2018, 08:07:25 pm
Looks like it really does ^^. I updated download link in Library page.
Title: Re: Exile - News

OK, thanks~
got it :)
Title: Re: Exile - News
Post by: Nightmare on April 10, 2018, 08:46:35 pm
Little thing :D

I think there's a high-res version of Yarflak somewhere, and the mod it originally came from replaced it with a different effect, so there shouldn't be a problem with using the high-res version of that one...
Title: Re: Exile - News
Post by: Nyctaeus on April 10, 2018, 09:02:47 pm
I have both hi-res textures and hi-res effects somewhere on my HD but I can't find either of packages. We downsized majority of bitmaps in current release of ItDW for better performance. If I ever manage to find them, I will upload both.
Title: Re: Exile - News
Post by: CT27 on April 11, 2018, 01:08:04 pm
When you say you posted the update link, do you mean the Knossos link or the link for non-Knossos users (1.2)?

Secondary question, for non-Knossos users, is this on the Installer?
Title: Re: Exile - News
Post by: Nyctaeus on April 11, 2018, 01:30:23 pm
Knossos link... For non-Knossos users :]

It's not on FSOInstaller. I currently don't know how to add my stuff to this, and I am lacking time to learn.
Title: Re: Exile - News
Post by: CT27 on April 11, 2018, 04:01:04 pm
Just to make sure I understand the numbering right:

Exile 1.2 is the non-Knossos version and that will be released sometime soon?

Yes. And it is released.
Title: Re: Exile - News
Post by: CT27 on April 11, 2018, 06:03:34 pm
Cool.  Where is version 1.2 at?  The Library thread only displays a link and says Knossos 1.0.3.
Title: Re: Exile - News
Post by: Nightmare on April 11, 2018, 06:19:07 pm
Look a few posts above. 1.0.3 = The English Update = 1.2.
Title: Re: Exile - News
Post by: CT27 on April 11, 2018, 06:57:18 pm
Thanks for your help, I think I get it now.  So the current link in the beginning of the Library thread is 1.2 for non-Knossos users?

Geeez... I dunno how to knossos properly -____-

Library updated with modfolder download.
Title: Re: Exile - News
Post by: Nightmare on April 12, 2018, 01:28:44 pm
I think such stuff is usually provided in "Core" named files, but I dunno if it's relevant.

Just out of interest, did you noticed my comment in the discussion thread?
https://www.hard-light.net/forums/index.php?topic=91647.msg1863090#msg1863090

I ask because unless you renamed/removed all ships from retail, the issues (atleast those regarding the plot details) are still there...
Title: Re: Exile - News
Post by: Nyctaeus on April 13, 2018, 04:10:34 am
I know for sure that I forgot about this explosion flashes. I will add those in next update. Rest should be done, except for that economy thing. Unregulated economy is part of official Syndicate propaganda, same as neo-buddhist Equilibrium philosophy so this parts stays.
Title: Re: Exile - News
Post by: Nightmare on April 13, 2018, 05:47:11 am
I've checked the missions and 2 of the issues were still in; nothing major, though.

Something weird is going on...exile downloaded like a charm on knossos, but the mod doesn't see my joystick. I have it enabled in knossos but it will not work ingame (it works with my other mods). However it works in wxlauncher. I just uploaded a debug to fsnebula if you wish to look at it

I'm not expert in that matter. Except for that hud gauges error that we have no idea how to fix, everything looks normal. It may be some sort of Knossos error.

Guess what? Turns out I didn't activate my FSO build. The mod now sees my joystick after testing it in the control config settings :)

Unfortunately not.

I have whole "Exile Hi-Res" folder on my HD where textures and effects are supposed to be... But it's empty. And I have no idea why.
I probably stored those files on my network HD drive long time ago, than forgot about it. Unfortunately this HD also had issues an crashed several times. I'm afraid those files are lost.
