Re: A celebration of Freespace
I went back to playing Inferno Release 1. Here are fivefour shots using Spidey's light settings.









There is also an additional fifth shot, but in addition to looking horrible, that also exposes a glitch with the Vela Cargo. :nervous:

I knew it was worth waiting to play the latest FSPort until I got my new PC, so I could enjoy it in ridiculously high resolution and with all the bells and whistles...

Even the first training mission looks spectacular now.


The Valk in all its new HTL glory


The Taurus is about to have a very bad day


Paving the way for the Galatea, the normal mapped asteroids look gorgeus


The Galatea teaching the Hellions cruisers a lesson...


...not that it helps her avoiding her fate.


Going after the Zenith


Kill kill kill!


The Bastion after "Clash of the titans"


Endgame

Re: About Freespace 1 creating ships
Hey guys, just for curiosity, is there any program that allows us to create ships and to create weapons. Thanks  :)

Well, that allows you to add entries to the tables, but actually creating new models, textures, and effects is an entirely different story.

Re: A celebration of Freespace
Depends on what kind of creating you mean. If you just want to modify ships or make new ships based off of available models, then all you need is notepad.

If you intend to make completely new models, you'll need several programs. One that is capable of doing 3D modelling and texturing and can export to either Collada .dae or TrueSpace .cob formats, and then you'll need one to convert the files to the game's .pof format, which is usually accomplished with Pof Creator Suite 2.0

Re: A celebration of Freespace
Looking at those shots, there's one thing that stands out that needs improvement - anti-aliasing. Is there no AA due to a problem with the FS engine?

Sorry, mon. I think I had it off in the Launcher when I took those shots. Apparently having AA set to something from the driver settings didn't make a difference.

Re: A celebration of Freespace
Just asking cuz the resized, smaller pics embedded in the thread actually look better than the full-sized pics, due to the natural anti-aliasing that comes from shrinking the pics... ;)

Well, Anti-Aliasing does work in FS, but to me it's a performance hit for little benefit.

Re: A celebration of Freespace

At least on NVidia, Full Screen Anti-Aliasing causes a strange problem with flickering flecks appearing behind the thruster flames. With no AA, they are not there. Dunno if the ATi/AMD cards do the same.

I still use AA with FS2_Open but it's sometimes a bit annoying to say the least. It's also somewhat inconsistent since for example Zacam can apparently use FSAA without it and on his rig it's tied to one of the optimizing options (trilinear optimization or somesuch). And I don't know if it's related to NVidia or drivers or FS2_Open... :blah:

Also, the in-built anisotropic filtering option in FS2_Open is pants. It looks really bad compared to driver level AF, which is why I use that instead of the Launcher option.

As far as what the difference between AA and no AA is... well, this handy page explains it quite well. :p
There are three things that last forever: Abort, Retry, Fail - and the greatest of these is Fail.
