Re: Discussion of an upgrade to Sol:A History
Update

And INFR1 should have the SCP patch. But this upgrade will be the full S:AH, so you won't have to worry about anything else :P

Re: Discussion of an upgrade to Sol:A History
Retextured an Orion in an attempt of the JCD Majesty. You tell me if you like it and if it should be included in the upgrade. Hope it is good enough.

Numbers in the picture:
1. No lighting.
2. Engine effects
3. Top view with specular.

And comment please  :nod:

EDIT: But for some reason it needs more virtual memory than the stadart GTD Orion. My framerate droped when I viewed it up close.

Re: Discussion of an upgrade to Sol:A History
So, should I leave it in S:AH, keep the old JCD Majesty, or try to make a new one ( which I'd hate to do again ).

Oh, and specular maps are blue.

Make the shine maps match the regular maps, then add it in.

Re: Discussion of an upgrade to Sol:A History
Dunno... The blue/violet shinemaps look kinda good... Adds colour variety. On the other hand you all might think it looks unrealistic, though different surfaces can reflect differently coloured than the surface light. I need more people opinions, though currently it seems that Snail's the only one who's replying here...

Maybe just make them less blue...

Nice work though.

Another update  :eek2:

I really got to stop doing them... Telling every single thing that I do for this upgrade...

Comments, thoughts, ideas?

Great work!! Keep it up, ShadowGorrath!  :yes:

From my point of view a lot of people are interested in this project and are eager to d/l the final work...  :nod:

Uhm...what about the campaign? Is there something FRED 2 Open can do to improve it?

Re: Discussion of an upgrade to Sol:A History
Well, I don't really think that the campaign needs editing/improving, as it's great the way it is. Except for the backgrounds, which I am nearing completion of fully replacing/improving :)

The only thing that the campaign will be missing after this will be voice acting, which is very hard to do for a 40 mission campaign.

Re: Discussion of an upgrade to Sol:A History
I agree. Are you going to use nebulae in Sol?

Re: Discussion of an upgrade to Sol:A History
No. Sol doesn't have nebulas neither in FS, nor in Inferno. Though you'll get a standart-issue Starfield.pof and an asteroid skybox for missions in asteroid fields.

The only reason there are no nebulae is probably because Woo/whoever was too lazy to add them. :P

Re: Discussion of an upgrade to Sol:A History
Speaking of Sol...there are no nebulae in Inferno but there are some in FreeSpace 1. Watch the final cutscene. They're similar to the ones already seen in Colony Wars.

:yes:

But same sentiment, if it's grey then let it be all grey, I guess... should get the dull military feel spot-on imho. :D

No, it was agreed by the original R1 team and has stuck since then.
