Re: December status and model releases
What would be the function of a "hive"?

Re: December status and model releases
Let me rephrase that then...what is the purpose of the Shivan Gargant?

Re: December status and model releases
To be a huge ship. Honestly that's about a concrete an answer as you're going to get. The Hive designation is just what the Terrans (and Vasudans) designate it as, just like "Juggernaut" for SJ Sathanas.

What's the purpose of a Sathanas?
What's the purpose of a SF Scorpion?

You can infer or guess the role it plays for the Shivans but how sure are you?

Re: December status and model releases
More to the point, the Gargant was intended to be a set-piece, certainly not something that the player could ever remotely damage on their own.

Re: December status and model releases
Since it was so gigantic and from the sound of it defacto invulnerable...was the GTVA going to do anything other than run away when it showed up?  If you can tell, what was the original plot plan for the Gargant?

Wasn't that what the Icanus was for?
People are stupid, therefore anything popular is at best suspicious.

Hey, five months ago, my HTL Raguel is done, with help from Betrayal. I can guess I can include it here?

It's not Inferno-related model anymore. Low-poly version was. Ours isn't.

Consider it as something new, but created using old model from INF as a reference. Especially when it was modelled from scratch, without parts of original model.

Re: December status and model releases
Then, I guess my HTL Raguel upgrade is nothing more than just an improvement of the INF model dump version of it.

Enter it and blow it up from the inside like that dyson sphere in Freelancer, obviously :D

Close, you were going to do that to the thing the Gargant was going to be fighting in the last 2 missions....


We had plans to include the Gargant in the current campaign, but the engine didn't like what we had planned so that had to be shelved.

Since it's not part of the campaign, can you say what the Gargant was going to be fighting?  That sounds interesting.

The Gargant doesn't need to fight.  It's very presence inspires its enemies to despair and commit suicide.  :D

An Ancient Mothership.
It didn't work out very well because the ai would keep crashing into the walls no matter how big the interior was. The Notus bomber was specifically for that mission.

What exactly was the problem; the Gargant and other ship was too big for the engine to handle?

I think it was more likely

<Aesaar> literary criticism is vladimir putin

<MageKing17> "There's probably a reason the code is the way it is" is a very dangerous line of thought. :P
<MageKing17> Because the "reason" often turns out to be "nobody noticed it was wrong".
(the very next day)
<MageKing17> this ****ing code did it to me again
<MageKing17> "That doesn't really make sense to me, but I'll assume it was being done for a reason."
<MageKing17> **** ME
<MageKing17> THE REASON IS PEOPLE ARE STUPID
<MageKing17> ESPECIALLY ME

<MageKing17> God damn, I do not understand how this is breaking.
<MageKing17> Everything points to "this should work fine", and yet it's clearly not working.
<MjnMixael> 2 hours later... "God damn, how did this ever work at all?!"
(...)
<MageKing17> so
<MageKing17> more than two hours
<MageKing17> but once again we have reached the inevitable conclusion
<MageKing17> How did this code ever work in the first place!?

<@The_E> Welcome to OpenGL, where standards compliance is optional, and error reporting inconsistent

<MageKing17> It was all working perfectly until I actually tried it on an actual mission.
