Title: New Eyecandy Thread
Post by: Woomeister on November 12, 2005, 09:35:39 am
Since most of the old links in the eyecandy thread won't work anymore once the 3dap site is deleted, it's time for a new thread. In this thread you'll find images from the main campaign, test shots, and images from completed Archives mods.
Here's pics of m1-4 in the current build.

What class is that Vasudan cap-ship?

That Titus looks a wee bit overtiled. I can understand trying to make it big, but it needs other things on the long flat regions, I think, to help make it look more imposing. I don't want to come off sounding critical, but it's looking a lot like a trashman capship. I think if you had a few random greebles accross the surface, and used them to break up the tile (which could be left intact actually) it'd look a lot better. I think it has potential.
A suggestion would be sort of like how I dealt with the Damocles for TVWP: Like this. (http://mekhu.woodentoyandgift.com/TVWP/damcomp.jpg) Another example would be the Raynor. Or the Sagitarius model I also tweaked for TVWP, but that's not been shown publicly. (Though I'm sure you've seen it, having been TVWP's help, no? I could show you an image of that, if you'd like.)

Post by: Woomeister on November 12, 2005, 03:19:05 pm
It is the 2nd largest freighter in the mod (the 1st being the Demeter)
I didn't really want it too look imposing, it is just a freighter :)
Some of the flat parts can be used for docking and part of the underneath could be converted to carry large containers. It can't do that if it isn't flat.

IRRC the Sagitarius is a Aldo modeldump ship that I converted. I also have another version of it for future use in something I have in mind. If it's the ship I'm thinking of that is.

Hmm, I don't recall seeing it in any of his model dumps. In fact, I think Goober once said that Ryx made it. In either case, I went over it because it was just too... shapeless. I may PM you the link, I don't think I should post it here.

Edit: Actually, looking back at it, it doesn't look too spiffy compared to what I think I can do now... but in either case, if you're interested in a peek, just say so.

Yeah, the freighter looks fine.  I mean, it's a freighter......you're not supposed to go OMGWTF when you see it.
Title: Re: New Eyecandy Thread

I go OMGWTF at just about every ship model that I see. (As long as its not absolutely butt-ugly, like just a box or something.)
Title: Re: New Eyecandy Thread
Post by: Taristin on November 13, 2005, 12:23:40 am
I stand by my claim that it looks overtiled and a bit monotonous. It needn't look imposing, then, but a bit of greebling would still help, IMO.
Title: Re: New Eyecandy Thread
Post by: Mongoose on November 13, 2005, 01:32:38 am
It might be a nice option, but I think the model's fine as-is.  I mean, how much greebling do you see on a flatbed truck or cargo ship? :p

Title: Re: New Eyecandy Thread
Post by: SadisticSid on November 14, 2005, 02:18:36 pm
I like the Titus as it is. I always considered it a cargo barge that could ship multiple containers, so the flat section on which to mount the dockpoints is rather appropriate.

I've already said that there would be a new Ancient fleet as a seperate download that can be run using the mod directory.

Here's the ship name list of what they have:
AF Kato
AF Korfi
AF Armeni
AF Phyalki
AB Attis
AB Zakros
AB Satyr
AC Heraklion
AC Malia
ACv Mochlos
AD Pylos
AD Minos
AJ Androgeos
ATT Dallie
AI Thera
AI Cydonia
AFr Phaistos
AC 1

Only a few of the models are the ones from R1, such as the Kato and Zakros.

No they won't be in 'official' missions

At the moment I'm quite happy with their hull strength, but their weapons are way too stong. Mainly because I haven't finnished creating them yet.

Question. When i played Inferno R1, a while back. What was a name ( and if u can get a screenie or 2 of it.., would be appreciated) of that fighter, GTVA, that, from the rear it had form of a cross. 2 wings on top 2 on bottom. I remember it and i know it was a Very good design.. IMHO.
Title: Re: New Eyecandy Thread

Maybe I'm going nuts, but the Bellerophon looks like it would have made a good heavy bomber. It's dodging SAAA fire there.

 I dont know what else i can say about my mistery ship. It may have been around the (first or) mission where you protect ur battlegroup fleet (to luer the draken to attack). Not sure.
In a sence, its like the B-wing (StarWars).

That shed any light?

EDIT: I found it, im so happy! http://fs2source.warpcore.org/wmcscreenies/inferno/GTVAbest.png

There's a higher poly version of the Vesuvius in one of Aldos dumps.
Title: Re: New Eyecandy Thread
Post by: StratComm on November 21, 2005, 12:25:57 pm
It's primary configuration was not all that different from an Ursa's.  Of course, that's not considering the fact that no one in their right mind would try to use the Ursa's tripple-barreled gun as the bank of choice in a dogfight.
Title: Re: New Eyecandy Thread

Bah.  All you have to do is learn how to aim a little off-center.  Three firing points over two can make a significant difference in a dogfight.

And it's its in that case, not it's.
Title: Re: New Eyecandy Thread
Post by: SadisticSid on November 22, 2005, 05:59:45 am
I remember making extensive use of the Ursa the first time I played FS1 - so much so that it was my ship of choice for the last few missions. The Herc didn't really get a look in. :p

Nope, the Gargant is in a mod folder and no Inferno build I have is working correctly at the moment and I keep getting random crashes.

I'm trying to figure out why now. Looks like FRED corrupted several missions...

Title: Re: New Eyecandy Thread
Post by: Woomeister on December 18, 2005, 02:43:29 pm
I'm getting some random crazy crap from the debug exes, and now the missions work sometimes and not others. I'm hoping changing one of the Ezechiels shine maps will stop the majority of the crashes, however the last debug output I got should not be happening.

I've fixed mission 1, mission 2 works when it wants too though I hope the shinemap fix will make it work correctly.

At the moment INF Builds are so buggy they can't be used without random crashes, and one a few days ago gave me an error it couldn't find a file which filename was in gibberish.
Title: Re: New Eyecandy Thread
Post by: Woomeister on December 18, 2005, 02:56:47 pm
Lucky me it looks like the Ezechiel shine map is the cause of the loading crashes. I'll keep monitoring it on both my systems just in case though.

Current versions of missions seem to be working again...
Title: Re: New Eyecandy Thread
Post by: Murderous Species on December 18, 2005, 03:08:26 pm

Shivan?

Title: Re: New Eyecandy Thread
Post by: Woomeister on December 18, 2005, 03:20:29 pm
Terran medium fighter, it's used in most missions.

Crashes seem to occur now and then now, but at least it will load the mission on the next attempt, which is a lot better than a few hours ago...

Post by: Woomeister on December 19, 2005, 03:32:02 am
INF version of GTF Myrmidon, right? Sounds good.
Inferno fighters are classified in this manner:
Light Fighter - Mihos
Medium Fighter - Ezechiel
Heavy fighter - Herc 3
Interceptor - Perseus ADv
Assault Fighter - Alves
Stealth - Daedalus

Light fighters are the quick but have weak hulls. Good against heavy fighters but not against capships.
Medium fighters act as a mid range, good for both fighter combat and against cruisers
Heavy fighters are great at attacking cruiser and corvettes but are slow in dogfights. High missile capacity
Interceptors are good against bombers and are the fastest craft
Assault fighters have the most gun banks and can be used for a variety of purposes
Stealth I shouldn't need to explain

It doesn't since the Assassin was replaced by the Arbalest, which is only carried by the Danaus or above.

Different sizes and power, the Lucifer one is equivalent to a BFRed, the Gigas ones are far stronger.

There's nothing in that message that is fowl. There's far worse in mission 11, that REALLY needs to be toned down.

The message could of been "Get out of there now! Holy ****, you should of left while you had the ******* chance. All fighters, get the **** back to Delta Serpentis node on the double!"
Not that it ever was :p (note I used * for those who would still compalin without the filter, there's nothing there)

using God's name in vain doesn't look right either.

From FS1:

Command: Good God! We've lost the Galatea!

As you see, God's name was used by V.

(Oh....it's not fair). That beam looks great, it's not exactly what I want to do, but yes, I want to make different Beam, not that single static line that is used for all the current species, again, great work.....

Do that Beam have 2 or 3 Sections ?, I would say 2, but the small violet lightning cofunses me, it can work both ways.....the less sections the less you can manipulate the Size and effects of different colour or effects parts....

It's an unmodified version of DaBrains shockwave.

The Shivan beam there is using a new lightning texture, but the old R1 back texture, that's why it needs to be fixed.

Title: Re: New Eyecandy Thread
Post by: Woomeister on January 13, 2006, 04:17:28 am
The Raynor is the middle destroyer, not a carrier type like the Cabari, and not a heavy type like the Boreas. The Lucifer being a super destroyer far exceeds all three Terran destroyers in firepower.
Title: Re: New Eyecandy Thread
Post by: Woomeister on January 13, 2006, 11:51:03 am
I'd say Lucifer. Though it may depend on if the Nemesis railguns can disable all 5 side Lucifer beam weapons quickly.
Title: Re: New Eyecandy Thread
Post by: Murderous Species on January 13, 2006, 06:16:03 pm
Then INF Lucifer is armed with Juggernaut beams, or is too strong or... the Nemesis too weak, or all of them.
Title: Re: New Eyecandy Thread
Post by: Woomeister on January 13, 2006, 06:25:39 pm
The Nemesis has just as powerful beams, but the Lucifer has quite a bit more HP. I'd have to set up a battle to really know which one would win since they don't meet each other in at least the first chapter.
Title: Re: New Eyecandy Thread
Post by: Murderous Species on January 14, 2006, 08:43:45 am
When firepower is the same, range is the imperative. And the Nemesis' rail gunshave longer range than many beams (I think).
Title: Re: New Eyecandy Thread
Post by: Woomeister on January 14, 2006, 09:03:45 am
Range doesn't matter, if both engage in battle they can use all side guns to attack the other ship. What is important is how the Nem uses those railguns. If it disables several key Lucifer turrets quickly enough then it makes the battle far easier for the Nem to win.
Title: Re: New Eyecandy Thread
Post by: T-Man on January 14, 2006, 02:44:12 pm
Dont forget to consider the firing arcs of the two ships. The Lucifer AFAIK has its beam cannons concentrated on its front and flanks, while its top and bottom are almost defencless against a capital threat (though this may have changed in R2).

The Nemesis on the other hand has beam cannons on nearly every flank, meaning it can engage major threats from any direction (again, this may have changed of course).

In short, if the Nemesis jumped in above the Lucifer, it would have a good chance of winning.
Title: Re: New Eyecandy Thread

Another Question again:

Q: Woomeister, do is that the HTL Lucifer, without unmodified or added Turrets ???

I was going to change the Lucifer2.pof for the HTL Lucifer, however, the Lucifer2 has a lot more of turrets, that's why...

But I prefer the HTL one, the Lucifer is more defensive than offensive, less turrets, a few more Beams than FS1 original, and defensive Shield (the HTL lacks one, not like the one FS1, well...I can't do nothing about it for now)

I can change it the models, so......Q: Are you're using the same ?
Title: Re: New Eyecandy Thread

Post by: Woomeister on January 17, 2006, 07:49:10 am
Looks like I totally underestimated the Nemesis ability to use its beams to destroy the Lucifer turrets. First run through all the Lucifer side beams were destroyed within 47 seconds leaving it mostly defenseless. Second time it fought back for longer using its larger side beam keeping up the damage with a single weapon until it was destroyed again by a good Nem shot.

Laptop:

29.4 desktop Vs 93.5 laptop. Both using HTL Lucifer and exact same mission.
Quite a difference there, that's why I usually use non HTL models on my desktop system :D

Post by: Woomeister on January 17, 2006, 10:00:20 am
Well I'm still having problems with FS Open builds after the Sept one I've reverted the mod too. Though todays CVS actually loads missions 50-75% of the times I tried compared to not loading at all like the late last month builds. Though the debug build no longer gives me my usual 'damage' warning that the DEC builds did.

Until I get this running on new CVS builds on my laptop progress will be far slower from me. As you can see by my framerates my laptop has become my main Inferno system as it runs 2-4x faster than my desktop system, even though it has 1/2 RAM and 1/4 texture memory of my desktop.
Latest CVS builds work fine on my desktop system though its starting to get less playable even without HTL models alot of missions are 20-30fps compared to 70-120 on my laptop.

Well I don't know what polycount HW2 can handle, some non HTL ships are still 4-6k or so with turrets. The Nemesis is nearly 5k for lod0 and isn't a HTL model. The Icanus is 5.5k and the new Gigas is 6k for lod0. HTL models range from 5-9k with turrets with the Lucifer being 9.9k with turrets, the low poly one is 3.2k for lod0.

I always keep deactivate Beam Pierce, I haven't seen much, but only FS2 and Volition are the only game or universe where Beams pirce Shield.....

------------------------------

A laser shoot, is energy, a Plasma shoot is also considered energy. If a shield can stop a Shoot, then why not Beam, it's the same, maybe density, power and Heat are different, but it doesn't mean a Shield won't stop a Beam, even if it is a second or even a fraction, it can be the difference between vaporized and not.

A Flag with Shields: 15000 and Power Output: 100, will providy the Ship with lot of defense, however Bombs will affect it after the Shield energy is drained. The Vinaashak uses 25000............

If no one wan't to make a Shield Mesh, you can use the $Flag: ( "surface shields" ), but the ShieldHit is not used for impacts, pretty bad, it would have been the solution for Iblis's and Diablo's shield meshes (maybe it could be reported as a feature request, after all ShieldHit is somewhat like an impact decal......)

----------------------------

If "it breaks balance", that's no stopping anyone from doing a good balance, it's just an excuse.......better than giving an excuse, just make a good balance......I known testing things, like TBL changes, sometimes bother a lot more than doing the changes...............

Title: Re: New Eyecandy Thread
Post by: mr.WHO on January 18, 2006, 09:21:55 am
If I remember correctly, Icanus was designed for 1 shot, 100% casualty planet bombardings (don't mistake it with planet killers that supose to blow up whole planets).

One thing bother me:
Why te hell EA need such ship? If they started construction during EA/GTVA stalemate then hell, they must have a enormous production power, but If they started construction before war then it looks like they planned the conflict with GTA\Vasudans from the begining.

I doubt that they planned to use it against shivans, as I said it wasn't designed to anti-capship fights and it would looks a large overkill for EA command (that would like to see 50 more Lindos that this one behemot) - I must remind that EA didn't know about Capella before reopening of Delta S. node ....

...ooops, I missed one thing. Alpha Centauri is 4 LY from SoL. This means that
there should be a basic E-mail communication (with 4 years delay) between SoL and GTVA.

I wonder what would they say to each other :D, 
We have shivans here stop
1 Sathanas = 5 Lucifers stop
We have 80 Sathanas here stop
stay away stop

EA: WTF ? We'd better build a super weapon right now ,  lol


Title: Re: New Eyecandy Thread
Post by: Woomeister on January 18, 2006, 09:30:59 am
The Icanus was an experiment into high power Shivan technology and was designed to contend with far superior Shivan vessels than the Lucifer. It was to defend Earth against any Shivan incursion into the Sol system. The Nemesis alone couldn't handle the far bigger Shivan vessels that the GTA thought they would encounter at some point in the future.
Constuction was started before the Sol civil war, but was delayed because of it. Production went into overdrive when the EA try to have it ready to beat back a GTVA invasion into Sol.

The Icanus will probably not be fully operational when the Gigas arrives in Sol.

Most of our weapons pack quite a punch, if it hits you you'll be knocked around a bit. It depends on what ship your flying though. A bomber like the Jotun doesn't get knocked by much.
Our fighterbeams don't penetrate shields and don't instantly kill you. Though light fighters may have trouble against the more powerful Shivan variants.

Title: Re: New Eyecandy Thread
Post by: Woomeister on February 01, 2006, 10:04:50 am
Well the Melia is at least 8x larger than the extension. I don't think the GTVA would build one of those at every node they want to have a look through.
Title: Re: New Eyecandy Thread
Post by: mr.WHO on February 01, 2006, 12:16:03 pm
So Ancients subspace technology is used in that way:

Melia- Sol node, in fututre some strategic outer rim nodes

Gate extension- outer rim nodes, some weak core wolds nodes (I can imagine some political bull**** of goverment about "We're proud to anounce that new highway... em I mean new stable node has been open to civilian traffic, now you can go from system X to system Y in one jump instead of two"  :D

Odin- beyond outer rim assault

Neptune- beyond outer rim recon/exploration.


I wonder what would Ancienst say during first contact.
Ancient ship crew: sir, we have an incoming jump signature, it looks like one of ours, but... 5000 years old :D


BTW Now it looks like Terrans have a monopoly for jump drives/ships/gates that allow to travel via unstable nodes.

Title: Re: New Eyecandy Thread
Post by: Woomeister on February 01, 2006, 01:23:47 pm
Well you don't build the big expensive one when you don't know what's on the other side. Don't want a Melia being captured or destroyed by something as it would cost a lot more to rebuild it. The extension can be built faster for a fraction of the cost.

I haven't decided what ships would encounter the Ancients first, but I doubt an Odin would be one of them.

I did try a Vasudan knossos extension for the Cairo once, but it looked really stuipid.

Wouldn't like to add combat to that large a mission though. I then decided to make other fleet pics and then noticed the Cairo extension only fits the Apothess so I had to hold off untill I sorted that problem.
I didn't bother taking framecaps of the others but I'd assume the EA one would be lower though it has fewer ships due to there being far more HTL ships in there.

You people have no sense of style :p

The Geb's mapping is a little too high-tech vasudan for the company it's keeping in that picture (I'd just want parts recolored), but the model itself is superb.  It's as vasudan as any user-made corvette I've seen.  Much better than even the Imiut, and I'm the one that made that one (Petbe as it was originally named; Sandwich gets partial credit, I'll admit, for changing the front end to what it is now).

I would have actually pegged the Geb as Shivan if it were an untextured model. It's the insectoid appearance, the spider-eyes thing of the forward (I assume they're) turrets. Vasudan ships normally look reptilian.

Maybe just alter the coloration of the turrets to something not quite so blatantly obvious?

Vasudan ships are more Ichtian, IMHO.  Since they tend to have fins, not legs.  Shivan ships are insectoid, with the implied exoskeleton-like outer appearance, but other than the "eyes" the Geb doesn't meet those qualifications.
Title: Re: New Eyecandy Thread
Post by: Woomeister on February 16, 2006, 04:58:19 pm
As for the turrets most ships in our fleets now use a standard turret set for each faction. Most Vasudan capships have the exact same turrets as the Geb. Even some FS2 models like the Sathanas and Rakshasa now have new turrets matching the style of our fleets.

Yeah that's the Amritaya, which easily exceeds the firepower of the Sathanas. If the Gargant was in that shot, you wouldn't be able to see it all even in that distance shot.

Then what does the Gargant look like?
It resembes a stretched and extra spikey Sathanas, at... what, 30KM in length?.  Its forward arms curve down to a near point.  You can see it actually, if you've downloaded R1.  Its the background for the manin hall.

Would that be possible?

We currently need to fix some balance issues caused by the last weapon update and the addition of the new armour table. In the current state it's near impossible to get near some of the capships in a fighter. I've hacked the ai_profiles table to make it a bit more managable for now. Hmm after that I can't think of anything major that needs doing except the missions. There's a few little things still to be done, but I'll probably find something major later :D

Not to mention how much distance you would have to put yourself to avoid getting wiped out by a Gargant's shockwave.

Post by: Snail on July 28, 2006, 05:33:37 pm
Hi. It's me again (oh no). Well, I just wanted to say about the GVD Apothess destroyer and a few texture inconcistencies. In R1, two Apothess destroyers attacking a Sathanas from the front at long range wouldn't stand a chance. I thought that Apothess destroyers were designed to combat Sathani Juggernauts ships from up front. The only way they would stand a chance was by attacking from behind or some other vector but the front (but then again every ship with a gun can do that  :lol: ). So, I was just wondering if this had changed in INF SCP (me and my nitpicking). Also, does the Mihos still have only 4 gunpoints, because its textures make it look like it has 8 gunpoints. The .pof also recognizes this by having four missiles sticking out. Unless the .pof and textures have changed, it may be a little weird to have missile banks instead of gun mounts (such nitpicking :P). And yet more annoying comments - the textures on the two lines of the old Arcas had those GTCD Polaris-like textures (Dock04-01a) on the back. They didn't really fit in with the rest of the installation and I didn't like them one bit. I was wondering if the new Arcas still had those. Those were just the most notable and some of the other textures of other ships didn't fit either, such as the Lindos having DocTile1A on the bottom and fighterbay (but you have a new model and I don't think it has a fighterbay anymore so that probably isn't there). There's another one with the SOCv Neptune but since that's and engine it's not really seen so it doesn't matter unless disabled. But whatever, leave them if you want and ignore the REALLY annoying newbie (god you must hate me so much) :shaking:. BTW, I love the GVCv Geb I don't know why people hate it.
Title: Re: New Eyecandy Thread
Post by: Woomeister on July 28, 2006, 05:48:11 pm
You need larger groups to take on a Sathanas. They can work solo against Shivan destroyers though.

The Mihos is the most basic fighter, so it's not getting 8 guns.

All those models are different so I won't comment on the texture paragraph.
Title: Re: New Eyecandy Thread
Post by: Snail on July 28, 2006, 06:14:50 pm
That's okay for me  :nod:. Also, is the Ezechiel or the Mihos the first fighter you fly. I thought the Ezechiel was the Myrmidon's replacement, and you talk like the Mihos is a Terran fighter sometimes. If it is a Terran ship, does that mean it can be flyable from the start? One more thing, is there loads of "Everything about everything is classified at level Omega and you can't know anything," cause that really pissed me off in FS2  :mad:. A bit is okay to add some interest into the next Chapter, but having it at every command briefing got really annoying. Anyway, good luck with INF SCP and INF Alliance. Hope some of the staff come back soon.
Title: Re: New Eyecandy Thread
Post by: Woomeister on July 28, 2006, 06:41:41 pm
The Mihos is a light fighter used by both Terrans and Vasudans, though the Vasudan one looks different and carries Vasudan weapons.

The Ezechiel is a medium fighter and is your second starter ship, the last is the heavy Herc 3 fighter. These are your core common fighters.

I'd say not too much classified stuff.

Do you still use FS1-style briefing icons? That's another thing I didn't like (I'm going to get burnt again :nervous: ).
Title: Re: New Eyecandy Thread
Post by: Woomeister on July 31, 2006, 10:05:26 am
They're far easier for me to make as it takes only a few minutes per icon. I tried once for 20 minutes on a fs2 style one and it still looked crap after that.

So the FS1 style stays unless someone else replace them all.
Title: Re: New Eyecandy Thread
Post by: Snail on July 31, 2006, 01:30:32 pm
 :confused: Then how did you guys make the loadout icons? Isn't it a similar matter?
Title: Re: New Eyecandy Thread
Post by: Woomeister on July 31, 2006, 01:36:54 pm
We use -ship_choice_3d to autogenerate everything except shield icons.
Title: Re: New Eyecandy Thread
Post by: Snail on July 31, 2006, 05:37:17 pm
Well who else doesn't use that :lol: ? I meant the R1 ones. Making R1 loadout icons are similar matter to making briefing icons (Or did some retired guy make the old loadout icons?). And that's veeery suspicious that you people can make HTL .pofs, cool textures and cb anims but can't make a measley briefing icon. I made one just now and it looks... Marginally (?) good. It's of the Warlock but it's a bit darker than the majority of FS2-style briefing icons and lacks some of the detail but doesn't look half bad (or maybe it's just because I made it). Emm... I don't really know if you'd want it or even how to showcase it (n00b) on a forum like this. Do I need hosting to use the 'Attach' option? :blah:

In the EXTREMELY small chance that you may want me to do more or something, I think I can do a *few* if you just send me a side icon of a ship you need.

Can you just tell me (in a sort of 'attach picture for real idiot' form) how to get the image viewable? I'll just try to attach it without hosting now (am I being the incarnation of n00b?). Err... It's only one frame, but I figured that if you didn't want it I didn't see the point in making any more.

Err... I didn't want to make a third post in a row, but I would just like to say that I made the Melia icon (both icons), the Tereus icon and the Nemesis icon in this short time. :) Unfortunately, the Nemesis icon had to use the old R1 version because i couldn't get the Nemesis in the screenshots to look right.
Title: Re: New Eyecandy Thread
Post by: Dark Hunter on July 31, 2006, 07:05:42 pm
You wanna update the icons, go right ahead. It is odd to see FS1 icons in..... wait a minute, what year does Infeno start in?  :D

I mean the EA/GTVA war, not INF Alliance.


And yes the attachment is working.  :yes:
Title: Re: New Eyecandy Thread
Post by: Snail on August 01, 2006, 06:02:38 am
Okay, I've got 7 new icons. They are of the Tereus, the Lindos (top view), the Ezechiel (top view), Eclipse, Ennead (top), Apothess and Nemesis. Including the Warlock that is 8 new icons. All except the Warlock have both stages (highlighted and normal). I hope Woo likes these or I would have wasted about half an hour of my life.  :o

Oh, and I called myself Snail because I started a campaign in like 2001 called 'The Return of Conquest' and I still haven't finished the second mission.  ::) It's not like I'm going to ask for staff or anything because I've already given up on it...  :blah:

And errr... I would really need some of the new INF SCP side/top views to make any good icons. Hell, the Nemesis, Tereus and Eclipse might have to be redone because of those shiny new turrets. I might also do the Oberon if I can make the OTT Baku look like it. Emm... here's the Tereus' icon, to show that the Warlock wasn't my best skill (i use a different method now, it doesn't look so pixelated and is done in about half the time).

Meep... Done the Geb!

Is the fade in/fade out icons before these are accepted?  :eek2:

Title: Re: New Eyecandy Thread
Post by: T-Man on August 01, 2006, 07:37:42 am
There actually quite good, but i wouldn't have individual icons for every fighter. AFAIK you can only have a certain number of icons, and having individual icons would break the limit for sure (unless Inferno SCP has risen the limit of course).
Title: Re: New Eyecandy Thread
Post by: Snail on August 01, 2006, 08:41:03 am
The Ezechiel was there to replace the triangle (unless Woo refuses of course), just like the Perseus, Serapis and Basilisk represented the FS2 briefing icons for fighters. But it would be fantastic if it was possible to make one for every fighter. I don't think I would probably have the time to do 200 ships though. I was thinking that the Largeship would be used to represent the Superdestroyer. I've finally got the OTT Baku to look like the INF Oberon and I'm doing its icon now. Oh and I hope INF is using the GVSD Duat cause I made an icon for that one too. What other R1 ships look similar to their R2 replacements? I could make a reasonable sized icon fleet to replace the FS1 type briefings. I just wish Woo would send me a few side or top pics of R2 ships so I could make icons for them.  ;). I looked through the R1 VP and there are no fade in/fade out icons. Does that mean they're not needed?  :nervous:
Title: Re: New Eyecandy Thread
Post by: Dark Hunter on August 01, 2006, 10:11:58 am
Yeah, good luck getting the Gargant to make an icon for that!  ;)
Title: Re: New Eyecandy Thread
Post by: Snail on August 01, 2006, 10:39:33 am
All I need is one screenshot of the Gargant in Modelview on the side or top. But I doubt he'd even give me that. :rolleyes:

Erm... If anybody's interested anymore, I've done 24 complete icons which are of the Tereus, Lindos, Auriga, Darkness, Eclipse, Scorpion, Durja, Rakshasa, Kismat, Arachnas, Danaus, Raynor, Warlock (new), Phobos, Ticonderoga, Ezechiel, Melia, Oberon, Argo, Saa (Shai), Apothess, Asarte, Geb, Aoh, and Duat.

All mentioned Icons have both stages, but are all of them are creaed from low poly models. The Auriga's icon is based on a hastily reskinned low-poly Orion. I created the Argo because I just HATE the old one :mad2:. The Asarte is there in case the Duat isn't used. Meep! Ancients time. :D. Anybody have an idea about what the Kabachanet (sp?) is supposed to be? Carrier? Destroyer?
Title: Re: New Eyecandy Thread
Post by: Woomeister on August 01, 2006, 11:34:47 am
I'd need to see those working in game first.

Most of those ships are updated though, so those icons won't match the next release versions.

You'd need to do fade in/outs for this type of icon, but the FS1 style didn't really need them.

No, I was just wondering if you had ported them in.

BFBlue?The Titan should fire it(not exactly),not the Argo :D
The Demon is not upgraded(its turrets are less than 20)but if you want some eyecandy Inferno missions,then...
Title: Re: New Eyecandy Thread
Post by: Snail on September 10, 2006, 12:21:09 pm
Demon has 26 turrets IIRC.
Title: Re: New Eyecandy Thread
Post by: asyikarea51 on September 10, 2006, 12:29:34 pm
Nah, my R1 is stock.

But I'm having trouble with the weapons on both the Argo and the Titan - they can't really hit at all angles. But I can understand that, since they're doing a job that a cruiser's supposed to do.

It's something to do with the campaign that I'm working on, actually.
Spoiler:
The player's "guardian" commands a heavily-modified Alcyone, and it happens to be that the guardian's friend pilots a :wtf:-modded Argo with a Titan rigged to the front.

The Demon is not upgraded like the Lucifer.You can get close to it without risk.

The Demon isn't in R1. And the Demon was better than the Ravana in a million ways.

The Demon has 160000 hitpoints,but only 2 LRed pointing left and right(quite ugly).It's more suited for carrier purposes,tha's why in The Southern Cross the Demon is very common.

Post by: asyikarea51 on September 11, 2006, 01:35:27 am
You can say that I've been influenced by animé, as well as the current automotive tuner culture... that's pretty much the backbone of my "modified ships" idea... :lol:

(PLEASE DON'T MISTAKE TUNER FOR RICE!!! :mad: :( :( :()

Tone down the size? A single SBlue maybe?

Since the Titan IMO has poor gun placement, plus the fact that the Argo's really short on turrets, I kind of wanted dual point defence AAAf's (on the Argo), but they suck against capships. I kinda need something that can attack fighters while still being capable of covering up the Titan's... flaws. I've had no choice but to outfit the Argo for anti-destroyer work, with only a single SFlak (+AI Class: General) for defence. Makes it all the more harder for the Argo to blast Tereuses to bits...  :doubt:

Heh when I first added the docking point to the Titan. I posted a load of sceenshots of a group of Argos in formation attacking a corvette with them :D
Title: Re: New Eyecandy Thread
Post by: asyikarea51 on September 11, 2006, 02:50:31 am
Well in my case (that is if I even bother to finish the campaign and release it), it's supposed to be a single Argo versus something like a single Boreas/Tereus or even bigger.

But that in itself causes FRED headaches in terms of hitpoints and trying to cover up the use of "ship-invulnerable"... :lol:
Title: Re: New Eyecandy Thread
Post by: asyikarea51 on September 11, 2006, 06:20:55 am
Another shot of the :wtf:-modded Argo. Couldn't stop thinking of it, so what the hey. Make yet another TEST mission... :lol:

Test mission statistics:
SSD jumped in at 0:15.
SSD exploded at approximately 4:03~05.

Kill: GTCv Phobos (58%)
Attacking force: GTC Alcyone, GTCv Phobos, GTT Argo, EAD Tereus

The SSD's front beam weapons really HURT... a lot of turrets went down before they could even open fire :shaking:

But now I think that the Titan's weapon coverage is not bad actually. :lol:

Variety.Raguel,Abel and Lamia.You may insert many ship of this classes in a mission and you'll need to change your tactics with every ship class.If you add some cruisers from FS2,expecially the Lilith,much better.

No, there was an Orion with Fenris textures on the INF SCP Additional content thread. But actually, the Nemesis does resemble a Fenris in a warped, transdimensional way... And you haven't seen the original Nemesis (carrier.pof) it had no turrets and looked like a block on top of a block with an alcove and a run way coming out of it. Insult to all Nemesis fans. :P

No, no and no :D

It has got to be something new... But it looks familiar from somewhere...

That Orion was just a test for the wip INFA textures I was making at the time to see what they would look like on a larger capship.

Oh, so it's not in...

Hm, in the Inferno FAQ Thread, you said there were 4 chapters planned, while in SadisticSid's big post he said there were only 3 chapters. Which one is correct (me hopes 4 :D)? And can we have a screenshot of the Kurruk? I was wondering what that thing looked like. Is it still in Inferno?
Title: Re: New Eyecandy Thread
Post by: Woomeister on September 16, 2006, 04:26:36 am
There was 4 planned before we changed to using SCP. There will only be 2-3 chapters.

Don't have the Kurruk anymore.

Oh poor Taristin (better not bring that up)....

So the first 2 are already planned but the third is still in general plotting stages, correct? I was wondering about the plot for R3... ;)
Title: Re: New Eyecandy Thread
Post by: Woomeister on September 16, 2006, 05:35:31 am
Well the original R3 was the Ancients campaign. So something else needs to be done now. That's why I say 2-3 in case we decide not to do a third and just go onto other things like INFA and Gateways.

It would be a lot faster than the main INF since all that needs to be done is making the missions and the negligible table cutting and pasting.

The Titan fire BFBlues?

Snail:remember how many hitpoints does the Lucifer have?How many BFReds?You tihnk that a Phobos,an Alcyone and a Titan could stop it?
Probably there are other ships(I see a glow under the Lucifer)but they won't be enough :D
Title: Re: New Eyecandy Thread
Post by: Snail on September 17, 2006, 09:50:28 am
Could be with sustained fire, 10 BFBlues all firing at once at the Lucifer would bring down its hull strength conciderably, though it might not destroy it. The Lucifer can only target the Phobos and the Alcyone at that angle, it can probably hit the Surkan with its LRed and probably hit it with its quadruple SReds, but it probably will target the larger Phobos and Alcyone instead.
Title: Re: New Eyecandy Thread
Post by: asyikarea51 on September 18, 2006, 05:13:01 am
Uhh, ten BFBlues only bring the hull strength down by 5-8%. Death Squad consists of one Tereus, one Phobos, one Argo and one Alcyone. All are using Helios as secondaries; Tereus is using a mix of Blue and Silver beams (this is story related :lol:).

When the Luci first jumped in, the Tereus's front BFSilv got whacked out instantly... :wtf: or just failed to fire 'cos the FOV was off. Took me some adjustment to get it to fire...

Point to note, Surkan's Argo is actually pointing in reverse :lol: Front Titan is an anti-fighter grid (AAAf/Hornet/Stinger/Vortex), bottom Titan (which faces backwards when you dock it with the Argo's bottom slot) is an anti-capital grid (BFBlue, Helios).

Sadly I was only successful the first time I loaded the mission (i.e. All Death Squad ships survive and only Lucifer dies)... rest of the times, I had to cheat invul the DS ships, I just couldn't get them to repeat what they did on the first try :( :wtf: Lucifer is one tough mutha... :wtf: Bangwal

I think the Lucy wins...... it's got two juggernaut-level beams, while the Diablo has only one.

If the battle works out like this (WARNING! HORRIBLE ASCII ART!):

     Lucy                             Diablo
     ----|-  ---->      <-----    ------|

then the Lucifer wins, but if, for instance:

      Diablo             Lucy
    |-----   ----->     -----|-   ------->


Then the Diablo would win. :D

I ran the battle 3 times. First time, the Diablo fired its BFRed at one of the Lucifer's main cannons. The BFRed fired its own beam cannon at the Diablo and disabled the Diablo's BFRed beam cannon. The Diablo was firing all its secondary weapons at the Lucifer, disabling most of its other beams. The second time, the Lucifer fired its beams at the Diablo's BFRed weapon, then the Lucifer fired its underside beam cannon at another Diablo beam cannon, but the Diablo fried the Lucifer with four of its aft turrets in one go. Third time the Lucifer got fried by the Diablo isntantly.

Couple of noobish questions:

2.)  How do you blow up Earth if you can't target it?
Title: Re: New Eyecandy Thread
Post by: Snail on September 22, 2006, 06:02:58 pm
SJD Sathanas was a tiny triangle that was there so that :v: could create the illusion of sensor blips and the nine Sathani in 'Into the Lions Den' (more commonly known as "DIVE! DIVE! DIVE! HIT YOUR BURNERS, PILOT!!!").
Title: Re: New Eyecandy Thread

The explosion is just big, it doesn't do too much damage. One big uber pixely exp06... :doubt:

I was trying to add submodels to Earth in TrueSpace but it was too big and annoying so I gave up. But I made a mission where I re-added the Mjolnir#Home, gave it an USilv, set it to stealth and put it far away, then I put 'fire beam.' It looked like a planetary defense cannon. Oh, and just before you ask, Lt. General Mobius, it wasn't firing from Italy. :P

There was that part in the last mission where the commander said that we would bombard Earth from orbit until they surrender... I was hoping we got to see that. :drevil: Too bad we didn't.... :sigh:

I have made a mission test and a STHCRS mission with orbital defenses cannons,but they do not fire from Earth :lol:

Making a beam coming from a specific country is hard,whenever the player changes position seems that the beam come from another state,ecc.

The SJD Sathanas are used often in the main campaign.They are triangles in FRED,but their POF is a little Sathanas(why you say Sathani?).
Title: Re: New Eyecandy Thread
Post by: Snail on September 23, 2006, 04:44:45 pm
Sathani is the plaural of Sathanas. Colosses is the plaural of Colossus. Sounds a lot better than Sathanases and Colossuses.

Placing the beam cannon in Earth gives that effect (unless you're observant).
Title: Re: New Eyecandy Thread
Post by: Mobius on September 23, 2006, 05:20:02 pm
Earth is huge,if you want that the beam gets in range (max 24 km I think) you'll see those ugly textures close!

The plural of Colossus is Colossi,it's Latin but for a coincidence is Italian too :D

Sathani is the plaural of Sathanas.

Wrong.

Sathanas is Greek.  Its plural is Sathanes.

Oh,I should have imagined that Sathanas is Greek,since you use Satan and the Italian is Satana,it must have been in Greek/Latin.
I would have asked my mother about that since she has studied Greek,but asking her something about the Devil is...not definitely ok.  :nervous:

Gobber:I said that probably it was Greek, probably.

Ehm,it was mission "Strike",briefing,stage 3.In my note paper there's written "dest",I wrote it rapidly..maybe there's a "destroyer" or "destroyed" wrote uncorrectly.

Leave grammar checking to Snail or "neoterran",I'm the only tester that shouldn't grammar check INF:A.

To all:
Also if you can save all your comments into notepad or something and then send me a big list for each mission via pm once your done it'll help me keep things organised so I don't miss anything when I go do the changes.

Feel free to play the campaign several times, since you might want to too make sure any issues you had aren't a one off.

If Inferno: Alliance is indeed a revamp of Sol: A History, I won't complain in the slightest. S:aH was fun, but lacking in some respects. Given the number of colonies S:aH posits, and the amount of resources in our home system (i.e. the asteroid belt, entirely impossible to truly control or blockade effectively), it should be more than easy to have a long, drawn out, bloddy intrasystem war among these colonies and Terra.

How large are they in S:AH? I know they're.... what 12 miles or so long? About half the size of the Gargant? :lol:

I've started to add some other large objects for use with INFA
(http://inferno.hard-light.net/Moon-phobos.jpg)

I plan to add the Martian moons Phobos and Deimos, as well as trans-Neptunian objects Sedna and Quaoar

I may add some of Jupiters moons as well if I can find decent images.

The $r Phobos and $r Deimos moons were converted into asteroid-installations in the first few days of space colonisation, initially for mining and for a platform in between $r Mars itself and the rest of $b Sol. Now, they serve in a military function as a second command centre for the $r Republic. The leaders of $r Mars will undoubtedly flee to $r Phobos and $r Deimos in case of their primary HQ being destroyed, so it is important we take out their bolthole before they have the opportunity to use it.

Happy pretty. :)

I am probably going to be smited for this, but I didn't really like S:AH. The missions were good, but they were very unrealistic and looked... Patched together. Seeing the Darkness right beside a Fenris looked akward. Why did only the Earth Alliance/GTA evolve and not Mars, Jupiter, Neptune and Pluto? Are they stupid? There was no in-between development in between the Hercules, BAM, you've got a Claymore. I really didn't like it. The first chapter was no doubt the best in my opinion.

That'll be a bit of a problem for INFA2 as well, as I'm not willing to design an entire new fleet for the Jovians just because the EA gets a lot of new toys. However they already have one new capship, bomber and I'm working on a vesivius variant for them, and they get all the INFA stuff too so they aren't flying all great war relics.

Can we have a screeny of the new destroyer? Or is that classified too? If there were Vasudans in INF:A2, then this would start to sound like MindGames, just without all the Starborn business.

Perhaps the Jovians have a Fenris-style Hades.
Title: Re: New Eyecandy Thread
Post by: Woomeister on October 07, 2006, 05:20:52 pm
The fenris style ship in the INFA2 teaser I posted somewhere is their new destroyer. There won't be any other images of it for quite some time.
No Vasudans as its still set in Sol.

If I complete this new fighter the only FS1 ship that they use will be the Valkyrie, since I don't have an interceptor model for them.

Well it's currently running on top of the INFA hybrid on my FS2 retail install. I haven't tried it with INF SCP yet.

I haven't decided on what I'm going to do for the start. I may start you off using the INFA stuff and bring the EA stuff in gradually, though if I do that the campaign will need to be a decade or so long.

Personally, I don't really like campaigns that stretch over a long period of time. I like the type of campaign that is fast-paced and action-y. But I don't really care as long as it has lots of dogfighting and less scanning subsystems. 8)

The Herc is used in INFA and you fly it in mission 4, you fight it in m15 and probably a few other missions. It's also selectable in other missions if it isn't the default ship.
These ships are for INFA2 where I'm trying to remove as many FS1 ships as possible from that period.

GTA's evolution into EA, and the rest of the Solar system's evolution into their own designs, based on old GTA tech? (I'm just assuming things though :lol:)

Point taken...
Title: Re: New Eyecandy Thread
Post by: Woomeister on October 08, 2006, 09:59:55 am
Well the 'old GTA tech' is quite capable of going up against the EA ships. The only real difference between them is the maps, and the EA fighters have additional EA secondary weapons not avaliable to Jovian craft right now such as the stinger. I might give them some unique weapons to counter the EA having newer missiles at a later point. The INFA2 stuff is still in early planning.
Title: Re: New Eyecandy Thread
Post by: asyikarea51 on October 08, 2006, 10:24:54 am
Lol, before I edited the post, I phrased it as "into newer designs, based on old GTA tech". On the topic of weapons, if I may ask (Shoot, how do i phrase this)... Do both armies (GTA/EA and whoever else is out there) share the same weapons at first, and then the weapons of both sides get more diverse later on? (With progressive introduction as the campaign goes on) Or did some parts of the GTA arsenal immediately change, the moment the EA came to be?

That also brings up a point, which is: Do any of the EA/whoever else weapons last until the GTVA return to the Solar System, or is the entire arsenal revamped by then (possibly because, at that point in time, the EA would've already gotten their hands on Jupiter/whoever's tech)?

Oh wait, everything is still in planning :lol: I got carried away... :lol: Didn't want to ask this at first, but... ahwell. :lol:

Same deal, point taken. :)
Title: Re: New Eyecandy Thread
Post by: Woomeister on October 08, 2006, 10:31:04 am
INFA uses hybrid EA/GTA weapons. Those weapons will be used in INFA2. The EA also get their improved missiles like the Stinger, Warrior and Halberd which aren't in INFA. I haven't decided if the Jovians will get unique weapons since I'll have to make the effects for any primary weapons myself. Though it depends on how big of a scope I give INFA2.

The EA weapons used in INFA are rebuilt version of ones used in INF SCP, though I didn't include most of their advanced stuff.
Title: Re: New Eyecandy Thread
Post by: Snail on October 08, 2006, 10:54:59 am
I thought the Warrior sucked... I thought you rebalanced the entire game. So will the FS1-era weapons be downgraded, or will the EA weapons be upgraded, or both?

Hey, I just did a dest and when the Zagreus broadsides the Orion, the Zagreus kills the Orion (with difficulty, it was at 5%). Why is the Orion so weak, and why is the Zagreus so powerful? I checked the tables and the Orion has less hitpoints than the Zagreus.

Oh, and if the Martian destroyer is called 'Auriga', does that have anything to do with the EACa Auriga? ;7
Title: Re: New Eyecandy Thread
Post by: Woomeister on October 08, 2006, 11:02:11 am
Well we aren't using R1 weapons here :) The EA weapons were downgraded from INF SCP, the Hellfire could trash the Megaera in a matter of a minute, so I serverally cut its power. The Banshee-R and Ripper were also heavily modified.

The Orion has less turrets but has better armour so they are closely matched. Though it entirely depends on luck really and who starts missing constantly first :p

Yeah the Auriga was done on purpose. You'll see that ship again :)
Title: Re: New Eyecandy Thread
Post by: Snail on October 08, 2006, 11:08:10 am
Making the Inferno weapons more powerful is actually very useful for people who may use FreeSpace 2 material for their campaigns.

I made them stationary so that that wouldn't happen (I was originally fighting the Bastet with the Typhon and the Neutron guns were slow so I made them stationary).

Will INF:A2 get a web page like INF:A (with the tech descriptions, etc.)? That would be cool.
Title: Re: New Eyecandy Thread
Post by: Woomeister on October 08, 2006, 11:12:03 am
Well there's no FS2 material in INFA really, so I'm not concerned about FS2 balancing.

I haven't decided about website stuff yet. Far too early for that, and most of the new ships are EA ones which are covered in INF SCP so a tech section would be quite small.

You can't compare them as FS2 weapons ignore INF armour values. Which have a major effect on how good weapons are.

I'm taking a break after the big load of stuff I did recently. Next I have to patch the latest updates from INFA and the new Notus into the main modpack which I assume no-one has downloaded :p

This one is Sedna and the Oort Cloud
(http://inferno.hard-light.net/skybox02.jpg)

Both of these are full 360 coverage with rocks, as your supposed to be inside the fields. It can be odd if you pass the game generated asteroid field and fly into the void trying to get to the skybox asteroids though :D

Post by: Woomeister on October 12, 2006, 10:12:48 am
I think all those red dots are hostile sentry guns around the installation along with fighters. Also, Woo said that if we are looking for a campaign with lots of eye candy, then Inferno is not for us. But what I've seen, Inferno seems to have a lot of eye candy as evidence of that beautiful screen of all those asteroids. :nod:
Nope not sentries :)

We can't compete with some of the eye candy produced by some of the total conversions. I didn't say there wouldn't be some nice looking stuff, but if you want super high res full detail everything, then your looking in the wrong place.
These skyboxes aren't perfect, but for someone with my level of graphics skill, they should be ok for use.

Trivial Psychic:
I had to reduce the density a bit as the UV mapping of the skybox caused noticable errors on the one in the pic. However I don't want it looking like the regular asteroid field so I'll probably stick with a more dense image, even if it isn't totally accurate.

Hehe, I remember a long time ago I made a mission with Inferno when there were about twenty fighters (with wave x99) and a few cruisers, an Icanus off in the distance (with the uber cannon at the ready with the press of [c]) and three Knossos portals.

The wings included
Alpha (1 Keres with Hastor + Kayser ADV)
[email protected] (6 Stentors)
a3*ha (1 Keres with Hastor + Kayser ADV)
1_4m_50_l337 (6 Vesuvius)
B3ta (6 Cyone)
G4mm4 (6 Cyone)
3ps1l0n (6 Cyone)
c00l_wing (6 SF Gorgon)
3\/1|_3_\/\/1|\|9 (6 SF Harpy [[imported from OTT, no fighterbeams, 4 Reaper cannons+ShivanSwarmofDeath]])
kill_me (AF Kato)

Damn, that mission was fun until I added an asteroid field and a load of undesignated and unwinged fighters (all AF Kato), and a wing of SFr Asmodeus freighters. I didn't know what was causing the problem so I ended up getting on with my homework. :sigh:

FS2O will have already crashed on my comp the very moment I see the first wave appearing on my screen in that mission...

On my comp, FS2O tends to crash out (with the Windows error message) when I start seeing moderate activity. At times, eight fighter and bomber wings can be all it takes. I don't know if this is related to the camera crash bug that I've been plagued with for quite some time now though.

Funny that Derelict didn't crash out, but then again some of the missions lagged so bad I had to turn everything down. And it still lagged. Hmm...

The craziest I've done is an entire swarm of Gorgons and Katos gunning the @!#$ out of each other (like, 5-6 wings on screen at any one time) while defending their home juggernaut... Androgeos versus Sath... And usually the Androgeos would keep winning, but then you have a pesky (friendly) Alcyone spraying Flak all over the place, as well as a Vesuvius lobbing Armageddon bombs...

Well he doesn't have pointy ears.

I'm actually restoring the FS2 retail ones right now for the INF SCP version of the mod. We have different genders for some of them and if there's interest in voice acting after release that'll cause some big problems, so the quickest fix is to restore the retail ones so the head anis match the SCP standard version.

@Woo -- Those are some really nice screens.  I like the new head ani.  The retail ones are starting to show their age.  The subspace effect is real nice too.  Love the Vidar cruiser.

Now I'm gonna have to fix my FS2 SCP.  I gotta have it ready for when INF:A debuts.  :D

The head anis will still be there in INF SCP, but will revert to the retail ones just for this mod so there are no gender change issues between INF SCP and FS2 standard versions.

A shockwave should propagate itself all around the destroyed warship.3rd shockwaves are simply not realistic,I'm calling them "Hula-Hoops of Death" rather than "Shockwaves".

Why would a shockwave just 'decide' to be perpendicular to you. That's unrealistic. Granted, you shouldn't even be able to see much of the shockwaves, but it looks cool, and if you are going to have massive blue circles, must of all make them 3d, as they look cool.

You're strange.

Why would a shockwave just 'decide' to be perpendicular to you. That's unrealistic.


In fact, the actual question is this:

Why, in real life that is, a shockwave in a vacuum would be planar?

The shockwaves from traditional explosions, detonated in atmosphere near ground look planar because they interact with the surface of the earth and the atmosphere, but in fact all shockwaves are spherical in origin.

And a sphere viewed from any direction looks round. So in a way, original :v: shockwaves are "more real" or perhaps I should say "less imaginary" than current "3d" shockwaves. In fact they are more 3d than current 3d shockwaves. But whatever.


Hula hoops of death are very pretty and traditional in space shockwaves, but they are definitely not justifiable by any kind of physics based on real life, which on the other hand doesn't really matter, especially in this case since very few things in FS universe are. In my opinion, current 3D shockwaves would give more realistic results if someone simply took the model system out of order and just replaced the old :v: texture with the cool blue animated texture. But I can't bother to do that really. :p

Granted, you shouldn't even be able to see much of the shockwaves, but it looks cool, and if you are going to have massive blue circles, must of all make them 3d, as they look cool.

Sometimes to make a game you have to completely ignore the laws of space. First, to make it get a good score for sound, you have to make sound travel through space. One rule already broken. Then you have to make combustion in space work. Another rule broken. Then obviously you've just gotta make some kind of super fast travel like Lightspeed, Hyperspace, Slipspace, Subspac, etc. That's probably got nothing for or against, but it's super unlikely there's a parallel dimension that is blue with a sun at the end with man-eating red and black aliens originating from it.

Most space games are very unrealistic, but it is that which makes them fun.
Title: Re: New Eyecandy Thread
Post by: KappaWing on November 05, 2006, 08:01:20 pm
Space games are realistic to a point, which makes them fun. The storyline is actually realistic and feasible, maybe a bit further in the future than mentioned in the game though. Sound in space and combustion in space arent very glaring no-nos. If the physics were more realistic (i.e. not stopping when you cut your throttle), the game would be much more annoying and not fun to play. Shockwaves fall under this category. I strongly believe in the "hula hoops of death" as described by Mobius, as they are similar to the awesome EPII depth charge explosion effect.
Title: Re: New Eyecandy Thread
Post by: jr2 on November 06, 2006, 07:37:46 am

Not really.  For combustion you just need heat, fuel, and oxygen... and I'm sure you'd agree there's plenty of oxygen on board any craft carrying Terran or Vasudan ppl.  There's plenty of heat from the damaged reactor going supercritical.  And, there's fuel from the matierals & weapons onboard, plus the nuclear fuel used in the reactors... although I'm not sure how that would work as it would depend on the type of reactor used.  And, actually, I think just about anything will "explode" if you throw enough energy at it... the super-rapid expansion, or something like that, I'm not sure.

I'm nitpickin' now, but do Sentry Guns have oxygen in them? Even if they did, there wouldn't be a lot of it, so the explosion would be comparably small. Inferno explosions are probably more realistic in the way that they're simple spouts of atmosphere with a puff of combustion, but I don't think they're as good to cover up ships exploding since sometimes you can see a clear split from 'hull' and 'space' expanding from the middle (you know what I mean).

Yeah, I went a bit CRAZY there, I was ripping through the forums copying hundreds of URLs into a single post. The main reason for that was to kill slower computers (kind of backfired because I lost something I was working on :lol:).

The new female command is actually the CO of the GTCa Oracle, I believe, home ship of the pilot. And it's not a sequence of pcx files, those heads don't animate. Actually, Woo, do the heads have different expressions?  Like 'TC-1a' (or whatever) would be command in 'calm' mode talking about the beer last night, while TC-1b would be command saying 'oh damn incoming enemy fighters' and TC-1c would be command saying 'aww **** we lost the Beer Shipment!'. Because in the picture where the EAC Magister is incoming and the Oracle is telling Alpha 1 not to engage, the head is smiling indifferent to the situation.

And what Zods? New Zod .anis? *goes to check on his own post* :lol:

Post by: Woomeister on November 10, 2006, 08:51:13 am
I used the Herc II head to save me the trouble of creating a new cockpit mesh.

The 2nd one will probably be a heavy interceptor, to replace the Valkyrie. I really wanted to replace the Valk with something in INFA2.

As for maps, we I haven't mapped them yet, and I'm not looking forward to doing so.

Watchya gunna name it (okay stupid question you haven't named it yet).

Personally, I don't really like the Apollo one, looks like a clash of styles here. The Apollo is a block(ish) type of design, wheras those Ares extensions look misplaced, too round. I like the general idea, but it looks like a conflict of designs there. Try the same thing with a Herc?

Those will be Jovian. They'll have:

HTL Callisto
HTL Medusa
HTL Hera
HTL Ursa
HTL Zelos

Which gives them an entire HTL fighter fleet.

I really like both of those Apollo-ish ships, the one on this page and the one before. :D I can already come up with ideas for both of them (that is if both of them get released sooner or later), but it kind of depends on the gunpoint textures that they're given...

Only complaint with the base Apollo chassis is the missile racks. I don't find them practical, IMO. And it gets worse if the mod using the ship has rapid-firing rocket weaponry (like R1's Hurricane rocket)... I have this thinking that, to use rapid-firing rockets, you need multiple launch barrels to give time for them to cool off between shots.

Very good, I'm assuming the huge Ursa thing is the Zelos. I really like the way you've skinned the heavy Interceptor thing. If you're going to be making equivalents, how about making another Maahes variant for the Zelos? And I see the Valkyrie got Angel-style maps now? Everything looks very spiffy, Woo, keep it up!

I dunno.

I just find it odd that it's too... simple... and the size isn't really there compared to the original Hercules. On the other hand, the Herc II at least had some size... Its presence, so to speak. But yes, all in all I like the fleet. :)

I should try drawing out my idea of an Antaeus if I've got time. Could be tricky though, the fighters I'm accustomed to drawing won't fit well with the FS universe...
Title: Re: New Eyecandy Thread
Post by: Woomeister on November 11, 2006, 05:46:06 pm
Well the Antaeus has limited secondary capacity with only one bank of missiles, and flys a lot better than the Herc, so it didn't need to be bulky.
Title: Re: New Eyecandy Thread
Post by: asyikarea51 on November 11, 2006, 05:50:11 pm
Better than the Herc II to justify its :nervous: small size? (genuinely sorry if I sounded rude here :shaking:)

Probably just me who finds oddities in size and detailing... but then again my comp isn't some uberleet PCIx9999999999 whatnot with teraterateraterabytes of hard disk space to support crazy graphic levels...

This shot is making me think of the Prometheus cannon.

Am I the only one who thinks that having two different Proms (or three, if the PromR is still in R2) that behave exactly (or nearly) the same is more "realistic"? Sure, maybe the two Proms are nearly identical performance-wise, but perhaps the mounting points on the EA variants are specific to the EA ships and vice versa? Can't use an EA Prom on a GTVA fighter?

Or does the EA improve their Prom, while the GTVA sticks to the "tried and true" theorem and stuff... but I can't imagine the EA giving it a whole new name altogether, since the Prom is pretty much a proven weapon with every side (bar the Shivans). The most is maybe they'd keep the Prom name, and give it a "MkII" or an "Adv" tag. Like in R1, maybe EA gets PromO and Prom Adv, but GTVA side bears with PromR's and PromSes?

"EAW-xxx Advanced Prometheus" and "GTW-xxx Prometheus S", or stuff... bleh... I hope I'm making sense with the post... :nervous:

Not really.  For combustion you just need heat, fuel, and oxygen... and I'm sure you'd agree there's plenty of oxygen on board any craft carrying Terran or Vasudan ppl.  There's plenty of heat from the damaged reactor going supercritical.  And, there's fuel from the matierals & weapons onboard, plus the nuclear fuel used in the reactors... although I'm not sure how that would work as it would depend on the type of reactor used.  And, actually, I think just about anything will "explode" if you throw enough energy at it... the super-rapid expansion, or something like that, I'm not sure.

I'm nitpickin' now, but do Sentry Guns have oxygen in them? Even if they did, there wouldn't be a lot of it, so the explosion would be comparably small. Inferno explosions are probably more realistic in the way that they're simple spouts of atmosphere with a puff of combustion, but I don't think they're as good to cover up ships exploding since sometimes you can see a clear split from 'hull' and 'space' expanding from the middle (you know what I mean).
Heh, Sentry Guns would have alot of stored energy in them... some sort of reactor, I would think... so just that would probably account for an explosion: the Sentry Gun is all of a sudden ~500,000 degrees or whatever.

Hey, Woomeister, have you seen the Music Project that NIx is working on? People there seem to agree that "fs2betamainhall.ogg" would fit Inferno (and maybe INF:A) very well, and I tend to agree. In case you haven't seen it, here's a link (http://nix1999.shackspace.com/audio).

The Hara is about 42km in one of its axis, so it's slightly bigger the Gargant in that axis, though has far more overall mass.

No you wouldn't really, the mission was just shoving ships down and beam freeing them. So it would be rather rubbish to play.

Well the Jotun was remapped recently, but I wouldn't change the mesh as I like it as it is.

A bit off topic, but...

If someone good at animating subobjects came and helped Inferno (VA?), would you put doors on all the fighterbays, make the Sath's arms move (like the Lamia), have the Jotun have animated missile ports........ Etc?

/me prepares to be denied

Yeah, the Callisto's bomb bays are like:

        | bombay
      _|                         ___
 _ /                           /       \___

    \_                         \ ___/
        |
        | bombay (not to be confused with mumbai)
        |

And the Apollyon (should) look like this:
    _______
   /
  / bomb bay 2
 |_____
  _____| laser
/
| cockpit
\_____
  ____| laser
 |
  \ bomb bay 1
   \_______
Title: Re: New Eyecandy Thread
Post by: Woomeister on December 02, 2006, 09:56:10 am
Actually that model already has slanted bays.

Anyway I've decided not to use it as a HTL Apollyon, but as a new bomber class for Pluto to complete the fighter numbers for each fleet. Each group will now have 3 fighters and 4 bombers which are unique to their side. This one will be a strike bomber falling between the Athena and Medusa, basically the same class as the Callisto and Peregrine.

This might not matter, but I was looking at the wings of the Scimitar mesh. Methinks it'll be more dramatic if the twin gun pods were split into single guns, so two separate guns per wing, followed by the nose gun, still the same five guns total. :lol:

Just a suggestion. :)

Wonder why the Enceladus and the Valkyrie also appear on the EA side of that ship screenshot. Those ships still remain in service even as the EA starts to form? Or am I missing something...

That's what I'm thinking. If you check the target box, it seems to be in a starburst shape, but if you look behind the gun itself, there's a large object visible not in the starburst design.

As for Leviathans, where has the blue colour gone? :doubt: The different colours made it easy to tell between a Fenris and a Leviathan in my opinion...

The textures aren't stretched in any way, and the model is not any longer than the Fenris.

If I tried something like that it would look too much like the Tico, which is used in INF SCP as a GTVA ship.

As for Leviathans, where has the blue colour gone? :doubt: The different colours made it easy to tell between a Fenris and a Leviathan in my opinion...
Wastes memory by having over 2mb of additional textures. Wasting memory is bad in the INF SCP version, that's why a lot of our model use the same textures.

That Leviathans could be better if you make everything look "heavy". The front of the cruiser is ok,appears to be able to house heavy weaponry. If you modify the entire design using that scheme you'll probably have a true Leviathan.

I'm with MD et al; the front end is really good. However the overall ship looks a little "front heavy". add a few modifications to the rest of the ship to fit the front, and it could make a decent colonial cruiser, maybe even a pocket-corvette. I like the idea of the colonials modifying existing designs rather than building new ones; resources are likely scarce, so money-conserving strategies like that are the order of the day.

Yup, change middle section a bit. Flatter upper part (about 1/2 or 2/3 of fenris, but looking more armoured) and more deadly looking lower missile launcher (heavy anticap missiles instead of fusion mortars) and it would be greate.

BTW you mentioned about corvette class for INF:A2.
Title: Re: New Eyecandy Thread
Post by: DrewToby on December 21, 2006, 06:53:28 pm
Love the back, looks like it could go either as a gigantic heavy cruiser, or a freakishly fast corvette/cruiser/thing. I mean, that engine seems giant. You could fit a wing of Hercs in there, I bet. Though that'd be a pretty bad idea...for the pilots, at least.

Poor pilots.

Anyway! Yeah, I agree with what was said above. The superstructure, methinks, could stand to be cut down a bit, but bulked up on armor. I bet you could do the same with the radar, too; it doesn't make much design sense to have a really heavily armed ship with a completely exposed radar dish, after all.
Title: Re: New Eyecandy Thread
Post by: Trivial Psychic on December 21, 2006, 09:33:30 pm
How about halfway up the superstructure (both dorsal and ventral), switch to a shallower slope angle, furthermore giving the center section a little more bulk on the sides.

It could also gain few (thousands) hitpoints as it's a bit more armoured.

And a bit faster as it have more engines (and propably better than old Leviathan engines so although it may have bigger mass but also much better engine output).
Title: Re: New Eyecandy Thread

The Plutonian version already has had a HP boost. The Leviathan went from 35000 to 45000 and the Fenris from 8000 to 30000

I might boost the fenris to 30ms and the Leviathan to 20 then...

Looking at those screenshots, I got a question regarding the Ezechiel.

Default it has 8, but in Inferno SCP it uses four. What about the four lower gun points? Have they been converted to 1) missile launch barrels, 2) gunpoints simply omitted, or 3) the lower section of the gun pods has been remodeled to cover up the unused tubes or similar?

IMO the Ezechiel's design doesn't have enough secondary gunpoint positions available to make machinerockets a real 'joy' to use (e.g. R1's Hurricane rocket).

And horoscope for the wing names... :doubt: What if Shivans or rogue Vasudans appear? Would Shivans be given FS1-styled wing names, or...?

eh, they now have a single ~6 barrel, rapid fire Gatling / Vulcan cannon, instead of 4-8 single barrel machine guns / cannons.  I think they use uranium depleted / HE / armour piercing rounds, too, depending on what they want.

It is quite a sight to behold.  Mind you, though, the proportion of total firepower provided by the cannon is much less than it once was.  (Not that I'm making fun of its utility - I'm a sim junkie and recognize how vital that beautiful piece of equipment is.)

The point I was trying to make, though, is that number of gun mounts alone is not an indication of strength.  There's much else to consider. 
Title: Re: New Eyecandy Thread
Post by: T-Man on January 31, 2007, 01:47:42 am
Why would Woo turn some of the Inferno fighters into puny fighters by taking away 4 gunmounts and now they have a pathetic 4? This isn't what Freespace 2 and Volition would do. This is the future so ships should be stronger now, not weaker.

More advanced doesent necessarily mean more. More gun mounts mean more space/maintenance and space. If you can replicate the capability of eight old mounts with just four new, then that is much more efficent. If you had a laser that was say 4x the power of the Kayser, then it likely requires 4x the power and 4x the cost of the Kayser. Thus mounting eight of them onto your fighter is not a good idea...unless you like having to wait for your energy to recover after every triggerpress :lol:

Post by: CaptJosh on January 31, 2007, 04:45:33 am
Precisely. Farther into the future, figure on more powerful weapons, so that the fighters don't need as many of them to do the same job.

Although lacking the capability to launch warheads, the SB Yali makes up for it with its twin anti-cruiser beam cannons.  Although the bomber has a relatively weak hull, it has a tough shield and good maneuverability.  Interceptor pilots are advised to deal with any Yali threat before their beam weapons reach firing range.

Woo is right.  I've always helped out here and there and contributed models to INF (Mantis, Incubus, Aetna, etc.) but haven't been able to fully commit to INF until about over a week ago mainly b/c of time constraints.  Now that I have more time, I should be able to help out more.

Oh, and is it player-flyable?

While I was playing around with the SCP I found that any ship can be 'flown.' Meaning that it can be flown in the actual game, fire weapons, etc. The way to do it is to use the change-ship-class event. This should make the player's ship anything you want. However, this is a limited ability and you can't do much else except for fly around and shoot, and it won't appear in the load out screen.
Title: Re: New Eyecandy Thread
Post by: Dysko on February 13, 2007, 01:29:30 pm
You can add also the "player_ship" flag in the ships.tbl to have it always flyable. :p

Just remember to add the "player allowed" flag to weapons.tbl to make available for loadout also shivvy weaponry.
Title: Re: New Eyecandy Thread
Post by: Snail on February 13, 2007, 01:31:00 pm
No. Adding "player_ship" won't let you do the loadout either, so it would essentially be no different anyway.

You'd get the default loadouts of the fighter you choose. (ie. Gorgon would get you Abishai, Glaberzu, Gargolath and Moloth).
Title: Re: New Eyecandy Thread
Post by: Woomeister on February 15, 2007, 05:09:04 am
Only for INFA, Gorgon has the Abbadoth instead of the Gargolath otherwise.
Title: Re: New Eyecandy Thread
Post by: Snail on February 15, 2007, 05:32:05 am
Is the Abbadoth long range too? The Gargolath, IMO, is only good against long range targets. Short range it can't hit anything slower than a bomber.
Title: Re: New Eyecandy Thread

Tereus, in that case.

Just because they have 80 Saths doesn't mean they have to have something bigger. The Saths could have been their ultimate fleet.

But I like to go with the theory that the Shivans have 1000 juggernauts, 300 super juggernauts and 10 Gargants... ;)

tbl-changes resulting in better weapons (and in the chase of the Hemeroc in better hitpoints)
they were named after the ships they will be used on

the Aamon was the Lucifer in the WotW-prologue
Spoiler:
the Hemeroc is a SD Demon which travels with the Tzulan and defends it - although it needs little defense
the Paktai (actually the name is written with an i which has two dots on it) is a Lucifer which is the one-ship-advance-fleet of the Tzulan)

As first attempt to get a modeler I posted the basic concepts for the Tzulan before it became a SCa Shiamak (it was supposed to be a SSD at that time, looked very much like a ravana) and the SC Qwor-class cruiser (which at that time was supposed to be a mobile shield generator with little arament - now it was phrased out)

there were a lot useless comments of the ships design but no modeler ever took up the work - as result kzinti and I made some attempts to model but it resulted in two catastrophies

Sweet. Id love to do a series of missions against one of those monsters. In adittion to sentry guns - if they are still being used by the shivans, - i the player and allies have to fight fight their way through a fleet defence fleet.

In addition you are then menaced by a near infinite number of fighters/gunships (Slightly rearmed transports and freighters) in addition to the Gargants weapons. These have to be avoided whilst the beam turrets are destoyed to allow your cap ships to make a series of stafing runs. KKind of like the Death Star run, but Freespace style.

Does the gargant have subsystems and weapons? if it doesn't it should. the monsyer needs teeth.

Sentry guns are not used by Shivans, unless the change had been made but not made public. The Gargant is almost invulnerable to normal attacks. Any attempts to destroy it would naturally be scripted. The Gargant has no subsystems whatsoever. Cept for turrets.

As a famous Sci-fi captain once said: "Any ship can be destroyed"
Like him, i "dont believe in the idea of an undefeatable enemy."

He managed to destroy ships on 2 occasions when it was said to be impossible to do so with his current ship.
He also has a habbit for using nukes to solve intense situations.

Care to guess who he is?

Anyway, it looks like ill be doing some extensive modding to the Garant. Id rather it be near invincible in that it would take a task-force several days to bring it down...than actually be invincible. Add a few subsystems. Give it few 100 billion hit points. Near invincible
 you know what im saying I mean, the Lucifers shields could in theory have been bought down during FS1.
Just the GTA and PVN weapons were so weak that it would have taken several months of constant bombardment by a combined fleet to bring them down. and in that time the Lucy would have killed them all anyway

Well obviously the Gargant isn't truly invincible: it just has super-tough armor (As I recall, the strongest Terran weapon: the Punisher Cannon (aka "USilv") does something like 1% damage to it per shot).

I'd always imagined Woo and the rest of the Inferno team would write up a plot in which the Gargant was destroyed or otherwise neutralized... but perhaps not in direct ship-to-ship combat, if you know what I mean.

There's a discussion about it, "How they might destroy the Gargant?".

I thought it did something like 0.17% damage to turrets... But my Inferno knowledge is failing me. :(

Give it few 100 billion hit points. Near invincible

100 billion is more than it has by default.

The Gargant is so powerful because of its armor table. The armor type assigned scales down normal firepower by something like 0.1. (So a weapon which does 1,000 damage does 100 damage, which is, needless to say, a lot.) Its own weapons cannot destroy it. :shaking:

you know what im saying I mean, the Lucifers shields could in theory have been bought down during FS1.
Just the GTA and PVN weapons were so weak that it would have taken several months of constant bombardment by a combined fleet to bring them down. and in that time the Lucy would have killed them all anyway

Wrong, wrong, wrong, wrong and guess what? Wrong. The right answer: the Lucy's shields were invulnerable to all weaponry no matter how powerful they were. Or else the GTA and PVN would just have sortied all their Ursa and Amun bombers and pummeled the Lucy into oblivion.

Well obviously the Gargant isn't truly invincible: it just has super-tough armor

Oh really?  And the only reason they couldn't do that: the Lucy had a nasty habit of vaporizing anything large enough to look like a threat, and carried how many fighter wings?  Not to mention, if the GTA / PVN started to mobilize anywheres near that much force, the Shivans would know and would show up at the most inopportune time and place.  Their Destroyers (esp Demons) were nothing to sneeze at, either.  Remember, as Alpha 1, you only get to see a minute slice of the action.  The rest you have to infer from what little you are lucky enough to hear about during command briefings.

Excuse me but i did say several months constant - by than i mean non-stop  - for several months. Prehaps i should have said a year. and by fleet, i ment destroyers not bombers. The shields i agree are to strong for fighters or bombers to take down.

What i meant was that it would take a fleet of destroyers something like a mars year worth of constant bombardment without letting up to bring down the Lucy's shields. the only problem is that by that time Lucy would have blown them to oblivion or have escaped.

-Like it takes 12 fs2 orions a month of constant bombardment to bring the shields down by 1%- at that rate it takes 8 Earth years and 4 months to bring down the Lucy's shields. and it would take the same number of fs1 orion about 5 times as long.

You try maintaining a constant level of bombardment for that long - it cant be done. in order for the lucy to take that sort of punishment you would have to disale the lucy. and the only way to do that is with a bording party IT WORKS IN THOERY BUT NOT IN PRACTICE

AND CHECK MY ORIGINAL QUOTE  - I DID ONLY SAY "IN THEORY"

In the case of the gargant then it would take a centuary of constant unrelenting bombardment to destroy it

Oh really?  And the only reason they couldn't do that: the Lucy had a nasty habit of vaporizing anything large enough to look like a threat, and carried how many fighter wings?  Not to mention, if the GTA / PVN started to mobilize anywheres near that much force, the Shivans would know and would show up at the most inopportune time and place.  Their Destroyers (esp Demons) were nothing to sneeze at, either.  Remember, as Alpha 1, you only get to see a minute slice of the action.  The rest you have to infer from what little you are lucky enough to hear about during command briefings.
Bombers are useless against shielded targets. A shielded cap could shrug off hundreds of bombs, but a beam cannon would be far more effective. Remember that Terran Command was utterly confident that the Colossus could destroy Lucifer-class ships. A Harbinger does 32 damage to shields. If the Lucfer had 100,000 shield points, all the Ursas in the Terran fleet wouldn't be worth a damn.

That third one I'm not sure, already I get confused with the Apollyon and the Callisto... but from the released INFA it doesn't seem to appear there...

:nervous:

Anyways, what's with that funny thing on the back of the Aetna's (:nervous:) left wing? Some bug, or was that bomber not intended to be symmetrical? It looks a bit... off... with that IMO... :nervous:

You should know! They are in the shiplisting! ;)

Well the smaller one is the Aetna, and the big one is the Leda.

3) the one just to the left of the Medusa

That's the high-poly Apollyon (renamed Geryon, Plutonian bomber).

Aetna? Leda?

Right you are!

That third one I'm not sure, already I get confused with the Apollyon and the Callisto... but from the released INFA it doesn't seem to appear there...

Callisto has only two primary guns under the cockpit, the Apollyon has three on each of the wings (six in total).

Anyways, what's with that funny thing on the back of the Aetna's (:nervous:) left wing? Some bug, or was that bomber not intended to be symmetrical? It looks a bit... off... with that IMO... :nervous:

It's just the angle that makes it dodgy, it actually a vertical wing.

Spoiler:
If I saved enough snipers, I was able to destroy one of the Nemesis's beam turrets before it jumped.  But when it re-appeared, the turret was intact.  Just something for people to keep in mind in the future.

Spoiler:
That is because the Nemesis that jumps out and the Nemesis that jumps in afterward are technically two different ships (there's an invisible extra character in the second's name). Now I suppose with some tricky variable work it might be possible to base the second ship's stats off of the first, but I don't know, as I've never tried.

I gotta admit, R1 was full of fun stuff. I found the storyline disappointing, with the steady succession of increasingly large ships destroying each other and the extreme brevity of the GTVA-EA war, but it made me say 'wow' more than almost any other campaign.

Motivated by what, exactly? The GTVA may be recovering from a war, but the EA was still fighting one (with our Jupiter Folk). Instead of making combat capable ships that could defend you now, they went and made a big fat super juggernaut that's going to take decades to complete and won't be defending them from anyone or anything within the next century.

Maybe they did it in stages.

1) Build a honking great big gun in orbit to protect Earth from big nasty things (or to turn upon the planet if need be)

2) Build an engine for it so that it can fly around to other planets and "protect" them

3) Build a reactor to power it so that it can fire multiple times without needing a huge recharge in between

4) Incorporate it into a ship design to further increase its versatility

Also, you're all forgetting two major factor - the Corporations and the Buget

1) From my understanding GTVA had many corps. all fighting for the big contracts and at the same time watching their profits. Now i imagine that the loss of the Colossus may have hit them hard so, they are cutting potential losses by avoiding an Icanus scale project.
the EA, from what i could tell, the military owns the corporations (so they are sjust shells) or has no corporations at all. Anything done is done directly.

2) The Budget: Sure a great deal must go into the GTVA millitary, what with the shivan threat, but after Capella, a very great deal must have gone into humanitarian/Vasuditarian aid.

The EA on the other hand would pour two thirds of the buget on military. And since the EA is an Earth Supremasist government, they would spend most of the rest looking after Earth naturals - i count that as Earth, Moon and intermediat colonies -  while those born on the other planets/colonies would be treated as second class citizens.
Also, since there would be a smaller population to look after in Sol, they could afford to spend more on the military.

Well the Colossus couldn't have been that much of a hit since they went and created a few more Warlocks and scores of other ships anyway. Besides, the Colossus was more than 30 years ago. As for the EA, I would directly respond to your point but that would be using my knowledge of INFA2, so I'll try to avoid spoilers in this situation.

2) The Budget: Sure a great deal must go into the GTVA millitary, what with the shivan threat, but after Capella, a very great deal must have gone into humanitarian/Vasuditarian aid.

Vasudanitarian... :lol:

Anyway, there were not so many casualties in Capella in comparison to Sol. Sol has fought 3 wars in the time the GTVA fought only one - The Intial War, the Mars - Earth war, and the EA - JC war. And remember, this is only one system: Wars are much shorter, but far costlier (The Martian Uprising and Earth - Mars War last less than a month each). The GTVA may have fought a war, but the EA is still fighting one. In this case, there would be a lot more humanitarian (but not Vasudanitarian :P) aid.

The EA on the other hand would pour two thirds of the buget on military. And since the EA is an Earth Supremasist government, they would spend most of the rest looking after Earth naturals - i count that as Earth, Moon and intermediat colonies -  while those born on the other planets/colonies would be treated as second class citizens.

And the EA is not a Earth supremacist government. The EA was formed because Earth and Mars had beaten the crap out of each other, but needed to team up to kill off the Jovians. It's kind of obvious if you play Inferno Alliance more than once. You are wrong that the Earthers are the only people who matter, the Martians would too; if they were second class they would not have teamed up with the Earthers.

Post by: terran_emperor on April 05, 2008, 04:52:35 pm
Snail,

When i made my post, the general discussion seemed to be about INF: R1.

So, i was using Sol: A History as a basis. According to just about everything in that campaign, the Earth Alliance IS Earth Supremist. Just look at the dialogue between the Nemesis and the Jovian Flagship.

Judging by the Nemesis, Icanus, Telemus and Lindos, The EA are fans of the Tarkin Doctrine (see my signature). That fits with the "Earth First, Colonies must dance to the Needs of the Earth" attitude.

Lindos  = Imperial Class Star destroyer
Nemesis = Super Class SD - the executor
Telemus = Eclipse Class Star Destroyer
Icanus = Death Star/Sun Crusher/World Devestator

The GTVA also has a vastly bigger population than Sol, so resources have to be spread accoridngly. With a smaller population and the Earth first attitude, the EA can afford to spend more on the military.
Also, at the end of the 3 wars after the initial rebellion, A lot of Sol's population is dead (mostly those from the Colonies). So even less people to spend money on, thus more money to the millitary.

Ive not yet played INF:A - unfortunatly - ive not gotten to it in the campaigns im going through. So my arguments are based on the R1 universe
Im sure that when i get to INFA and INF SCP ill see the difference

Vasuditarian? many Vasudans killed by NTF

I agree with Darius Scenario for the actual construction

Which is redundant.

Well, Sol A History shouldn't be used here since it's not inf-canon, or canon to anything 'cept Blaise Russel's universe. You're treating SAH as inf-canon; it is not, it is sub-inf-canon. INFA is inf-canon. So the EA is not entirely centered on Earth, it is centered around Earth and Mars.

The GTVA also has a vastly bigger population than Sol, so resources have to be spread accoridngly.

Yes, but they also have a vastly bigger resource pool to draw from.

I agree with Darius Scenario for the actual construction

Yes, Darius' thoughts are basically exactly how it was built, though many components for a large destroyer like the Icanus were drawn up long before the GTA was cut off (before the Great War, even).
Title: Re: New Eyecandy Thread
Post by: terran_emperor on April 05, 2008, 05:34:57 pm
Okay in which case i conceed to you're statements

I still blike the Blaise Russels Earth Supremist EA better though.

Here's my thoughs on the Icanus.
Id say the Icanus was originally a "Maximum Battleship". This was an idea proposed by US Senator Benjamin "Pitchfork Ben" Tillman in 1916. Fed up with the Navy requesting funding for bigger and bigger warships, Tillman requested they built the "maximum battleship" Basically the Navy skips all intermediate designs and goes straight to end-product ; the largest size battleship it can actually use. Though none were ever built, the design sketches have influended the design of nearly every Battleship built since then.

It say the main body of the Icanus was originally designed to be the space-based version "Maximum Battleship". But for whatever reason ,the plans were shelved.

The Punisher Beam cannon, was built to destroy Lucifers by firing uses of beam weapons capable of overwhelming the Lucy's shields. However, it was found to be two vulnerable to attack on its own. When trying to find a way to avoid this, someone dug up these old plans for the Space "Maximum Battleship" and realised that it was the perfect mount for the Punisher.

With a little jiggery-pokery, this and Darius' Thoughts can be made compatible

Because our fighters/bombers are for specific uses, it would be difficult now to mishmash from other available ships, make sure they look like they belong in the same fleet and are of the same level of quality, and don't break balance with out current weapon systems and existing ships.

Okay, then. First things first, upgrade this ***** (attached).

Can someone convert it to the correct file format for our blowfish (it's in .pof right now. What do you need it in?)

I think you would have better luck doing it from scratch. The version I supplied is even older than the one in INF SCP. Just use the model as a reference.

This was dropped from INFR1 because it sucked. For some unexplainable reason Woomeister decided to put something that was crap into INFSCP. ;)

I never liked this model and another one called the Leneaus (better known as the Sagittarius from TVWP). A few others (Petbe, Apis, Pakhet) are also horrible. Quite a few Vasudan ships as well.

There's only one fighter I've seen that even goes a third of that speed and that was Nuke's Charlatan-class, with full afterburner.

Such a speed is absolutely ridiculous in FS (although I will admit it was hilarious flying a Charlatan and escaping danger by a half-second afterburner burn... by the same token fighting a Charlatan was frustrating as hell for the same reason).

Blowfish upgraded Galatea looks like an EA light carrier candidate - it's already similar to EA Tereus or Riujin (damn hard name).

Maybe it could be put in INFA2 as Jovian ship that would be later incorprated to EA navy (in INF SCP times)..

Oh, and BTW, a while ago I tried my own to make a HTL cabari in sketchup. It didn't really work (it's plagued with geometry errors, shortcuts, cheats and other stuff that would hinder an eventual conversion) but I guess it's worth a look, for inspiration at least.

The best way, I find, to avoid those kind of errors is to try not to produce them in the first place, and also to fix them as you go, rather than waiting until the end.

The model is coming along, but I would like some information on its armament before I start doing the turrets (also, what types of turrets are usually used for what in INFSCP).

Don't add turrets. INFSCP has their own turret style, all GTVA ships have a set of turrets, EA ships have their own set of turrets, etc. So just put dummy turrets or places where Woomeister can slap them onto.

You scrapped a Carrier-destroyer class only or did you scrapped all Carrier-destroyer Destroyers too?? What About Tereus Carrier-destroyer?? It's scrapped or reclassified - I wouldn't like it to be scrapped coz it's second EA-ish ship after Nemesis.

BTW what about EA Darkness corvetter - you you remodeled or replaced it? Coz that ship shape looks like from diffrend universe, not look like terran, more like shivan (sharp edges).

I can make quite decent normal and shine maps and simple glow maps, but I need a diffuse map to start from.
If you have some retail-ish textures and need to upgrade them, I can do that.

I know, but what I wondered was if that's supposed to be the Jotun because of the rather significant difference in the nose's shape.

There also seems to be a new ship class on the last screenshot at the bottom of the previous page.  It looks to me like a carrier or a transport.

If you want to go the extra mile, you can use the animation code (http://www.hard-light.net/wiki/index.php/Animation_Code) to change the orientation of the turrets.
Title: Re: New Eyecandy Thread

Nothing strange about those turrets, really. They keep that position until targets are close enough for them to shoot.

Speaking of the models: the first one you mentioned is the EAT Corvus (shuttle-like) and the second is the EAFr Titus (large freighter).

You can use a turretangle-tbm to fix it.

Well, the moon in and of itself is too small to retain an atmosphere, whereas Mars does naturally retain an atmosphere but loses oxygen to space. But hey, the terraformed Moon looks cool, so go for it. You don't have to go the hard-SF route.

A test, which is connected to current progress on INFASA for a specific reason. In poor words, it wasn't a waste of time.

Because there are no targets around. :)

True, but I don't see why it should be done. It doesn't pose a problem and seems an EA feature, mantained to underline the technological differences between the EA and any other faction.

Well, the moon in and of itself is too small to retain an atmosphere, whereas Mars does naturally retain an atmosphere but loses oxygen to space. But hey, the terraformed Moon looks cool, so go for it. You don't have to go the hard-SF route.

That's where the date plays a vital role. If all necessary technologies were available in the early days of space colonization, there was no reason why Mars would have been terraformed before the Moon. The fact that terraforming of the Moon started in the 2350s (after INFASA's main campaign) means that an important discovery made it possible (otherwise, it would have been started in the 2150s or even earlier). All technological progresses in INF will be described, so you'll have a proper explanation for that and many other things. :nod:

Well if it's an EA feature to look like all your turrets have raging erections, okay. But it just makes it look like the ships really need to get off.

No, you're missing the point. There's a fundamental difference that makes Mars terraforming possible in a hard-SF setting but rules out the Moon.

The Moon can't retain an atmosphere. It's too small.

Mars can retain an atmosphere. It's big enough.

The Moon is ridiculously, absurdly more difficult to terraform.

I have no problem with it being terraformed, because it's a fantasy, you can do whatever you want. But there's a reason that Mars would be terraformed before the Moon: it can be terraformed without fantasy tech, and the Moon can't.

How much time does that kind of editing require? A couple of minutes? If it's necessary, it can and will be done. I don't see the problem. Also, nothing is definitive and some of the ships you see may be replaced by others in the future. The last roster change was proposed only a few days ago, if I remember well... no one said things will remain as they are so they'll probably change. (EDIT: corrected.)

And Battuta, you're actually forgetting that the EA designed and built the Icanus in the outer orbit of Mars, not even Earth. The EA has certain technologies which make such things possible, and I can ensure you that everything will be explained properly.

I used to like the R1 Tereus following the old canon of an "improved Orion" until I noticed how short it looked like for a destroyer class in Sol: A History, despite the good-enough shape. The fighterbay didn't look believable to me with a chassis that short in length.

Guess the Orion still fares better in terms of looking dramatic. :doubt:

I think there's a cookbook of sort in the works on Blue Planet. We either discovered or added so much stuff to the engine that we figured we should probably publicize it. There are just so many bizarre undocumented quirks in the engine and in FRED, from simple tricks like giving the player ship an AI class for its turrets to use to totally counterintuitive stuff like turret subsystem AI doing nothing at all and the 'no extra collision avoidance on player' flag actually making them more collision-averse and hampering AI evasives. Other stuff like weapon hitpoints hasn't gotten much attention yet either.

Plus there's the stuff Spoon pulled on Wings of Dawn, including his glide AI using Sushi's new AI code, which I would love to check out.

(Also weird but not FRED-related: until very recently - when Sushi found the bug - the engine actually did not assign FRED AI classes correctly to ships in mission. Sometimes it would randomly discard them and go back to the tabled defaults.)

I'd love to see some of Mobius' stuff.

lol, it reminds me when I earned my position of full-time INF FREDder by simply telling Rampage and Woomeister how I handled variables and visuals a certain take off cutscene, among other things. It happened back when I used to spend hundreds of hours working on Steadfast (an INFR1 campaign).

Too bad I had to stop working on Steadfast at some point, but what I did to that campaign was amazing... take off cutscenes, landing cutscenes, enemy aces and many other things. Who knows, in the future I may be able to release the first 10 mission of that campaign.

And yes, I'd be glad to help with that FRED Cookbook. I have been so unlucky my released-to-unreleased missions ratio is around 100:0, but I should definitely be able to post some of the FREDding tricks I learned in the past years. :)

Just reduce the amount of colors (pick like, two of the A/B/C/D/E/F at most) and stick to them, when you have blue/red/brown/green all in one it looks like a mess.

Basically any two colors look decent. (Even stuff like purple+orange), but with three it starts to get messy.

Let's say that three missions take place in a given system. In each mission, different bitmaps cover part of the multi-colored backgrounds, thus resulting in less chaos and in more variety (it'd be as if there were three different backgrounds in those missions). You got what I mean?

It's just an illusion. The basic backgrounds are the same but the bitmaps cover different part in each mission. It's just an experiment to add more variety.

Oho, looks like some good Shivan designs there.

We've seen some pretty good Shivan designs in the past few years. The Harpy may be old, but it certainly has a Shivan feel to it. As for the Ashtur, I'm not so sure. The front is Mara-ish, and the midsection reminds me of the Dragon, but the back seems a bit too curvy to be very Shivan.
Title: Re: New Eyecandy Thread
Post by: peterv on December 26, 2010, 02:18:28 pm
The Harpy is very good despite that it's  low - poly looks.  :yes:

The Ashtur on the other hand could be a great cruiser, provided that we are looking it's rear. This the first think i thought. And then i noticed the guns.  :doubt:
Title: Re: New Eyecandy Thread
Post by: Hades on December 26, 2010, 06:21:37 pm
The Ashtur's textures look to much like blood and not enough like, well, real, mechanical, shivan. The detail's pretty nonexistent and what detail there is, is generic.

The Harpy's? I don't mind but the look somewhat low resolution.

Or did you want feedback on the models? :nervous:

The new HTL Ashtur and Harpy are quite an upgrade to their low-poly cousins and appear much more impressive in-game.  Although I personally am not a fan of the blood-red textures, there is little we can do right now to change them as we lack talented texture artists (calling all texture artists).

Here's another HTL model; discuss:

The SF Mantis, now HTL, looks more insectoid with miniature spines protruding from its sides and armor plating on its dorsum.  The bottom, just like that of many arthropods, is soft and unprotected (too bad we can't program this in-game).  :p

Each Shivan fighter we have HTLed are over 1.2K even when not triangulated.  And I have to agree that since many of our textures are not updated to higher resolutions, they suppress much of the details of the new HTL models, but this is what we'll have to deal with until we get some steady texture artists (aka - we need texture artists!)

No project can be 100% perfect, and since you rarely look at a Shivan fighter face-to-face in-game, we may just avoid that texture problem for now.

Title: Re: New Eyecandy Thread
Post by: Droid803 on December 27, 2010, 01:15:17 pm
That doesn't even look like a texture resolution issue.
That looks like you grabbed a texture that doesn't fit its UV map and smeared it on.

I don't think UVmapping a ship to fit a specific texture that isn't made for it is good practice, as chances are, parts of it won't fit right, there'll be stretching/distortion due to well, the base geometry of the model and the texture's intended model having differences.

That, or the UVmapping is just plain bad but seeing as the stretching is on the friggin easiest face to align (heck, you could just planar align Z it, I don't think that's the case...)

But yeah, what's the point of having shiny new ships if they're not intended to even be looked at from up close? What's the point of making it high poly?
Title: Re: New Eyecandy Thread

Like we said previously, it would be preferred for us to make brand new high-res textures for every one of our new HTL models, but we simply do not have the manpower to do so.  In fact, we are at the nadir of understaffing as of now than ever.

So as for now, a smear job of a low-res texture on a HTL model is the best we can do.  But then again like you guys mentioned, a smear is still just a smear.

Well, we have 4 active team members here on HLP and a few more contributing from outside the community, and this situation is far better compared to that we had to face a few months ago. In fact, progress has been quite encouraging recently. :)

That said, however, the need for expert texturers remains.

Awesome stuff, but I'm suggesting you should focus on unifinished models than on makeing ingame models better. As I know, some of models still needs work - Nemesis for example. I want to see Moonred's HTL in action ;D.

Well at the moment we don't have anyone to map the Nemesis sadly. It is probably the top priority of the completed unmapped meshes we have though.

It's not like it really needs maps. Just say they painted everything white rather than using any of the grey.

That bomber seriously looks influenced from Evochron, I think Legends or some other one. It could just be me, but I do see a lot of similarities with some of the low to medium range craft you see flying or can fabricate.

A sound effort for both models and textures.  ;)

Same. I'm not so much into cockpit view, since it's set in the FS universe and the normal game only had a HUD, and that was good enough... just more on the ship model's cockpit itself ala MediaVPs.

That Aetna model is nice (I'm not sold on the new colour scheme, but hey we'll see what happens in time), but it felt kinda backward going back to a retail-ish look. Well to me anyway. :nervous: XD

The Treb comparison is because, if you look at it in a way, a Treb is a hunter drone in the form of a missile. It kills any fighter it hits, and it lasts longer than an Anubis on a battlefield.

Take Diffuse Map. Copy to a new file. Increase Saturation and/or Contrast, lower brightness.

Paste another copy of the Diffuse Map into the Alpha Channel. Decrease Brightness (with necessary Contrast adjustments) until the areas you want to have have a high(er) reflectivity (This in Photoshop for me usually means about -150 Brightness and -50 Contrast). Should give some somewhat usable results or a good place to start.

How about some of the new HTL Terran ships and HTL EA ships?
Most of our EA ships are upgraded to HTL standards.  Unfortunately we do not have the resources right now to texture all of them.  If you know how to texture, please help us out (send me a PM).

Capships! New GTVA big ships.
Most GTVA capital ships will be redesigned.  The old Warlock will be scrapped and a new supercarrier model will be implemented, known as the GTCa Magos (Greek for "warlock").  The Phobos and the Alcyone will also be redesigned.  Most of our Vasudan capital ships are HTL and have been that way for some time now.

Is the Lindos still in the current INF SCP?
Yes.

I wouldn't mind some EA and Vasudan fighters and bombers
All EA strikecraft are now HTL; most of them are UVmapped but not textured (again, we need texture artists!!).  We do not have HTL Vasudan strikecraft (except for those from vanilla FS2) and do not plan to do them at the moment (yeah it's racism :p ).

Speaking of Vasudan fighters and bombers, is the RVF Mihos still being used? It reminds me of the Seraphim despite being a Vasudan ship.
The Mihos is still used by both the Terrans and the Vasudans, albeit they use the same model but different textures.  Soon they will have different models w/ the Terran one looking more like - well - a Terran fighter.

I have a rule of thumb when designing Terran capital ships: "When you run out of ideas, take them from Homeworld."

The Phobos will be a marriage between Dark's version (current version) and the Taiidani Heavy Cruiser from Homeworld.  I have not decided on the Alcyone yet...

As for the Boreas, it is now HTL:

For me personally anything Taiidani and Vaygr are good examples of what a Terran ship should look like - blocky and utilitarian.

However the new GTCa Warlock design will be inspired by this:

Hmmm i am not sure about that version of the warlock, its a cool model but its too BSG for the FS universe in my opinion, Like i hope there isn't going to be too much influence of the Homeworld ships in the phobos etc. Even though i love homeworld and the Taiidani i feel they still should fit in with the feel of the FS Terran designs.

The GTD Raynor, although it is very Terran and FS-ish in its own right, it is nevertheless an obvious homage to the Vulture from Starcraft.  And w/ the newly planned slate of Terran ships for Inferno, I plan to simply use selected Homeworld designs as mere inspiration.  No one will be copying anything verbatim and passing it off as our own; it's unethical and most likely illegal as well.

So far we have several multimedia resources shared in between the Inferno staff, but we want to keep you guys waiting a bit longer still. ;7

IMHO Raynor is awesome and very FSish, but It's overused. It's part of InfSCP from a long time, so in my opinion, it should stay in it.
Anyway... I saw cool railgun-like weapons on Boreas, where standard Boreas has beam cannons? What is role of railguns on that ship? It still has other beam cannons than the main cannon? And will you reduce role of beam cannons on terran GTVA ships as their main weapon?
Title: Re: New Eyecandy Thread

Most factions have secondary cap armaments to compliment beams. The EA have railguns, the Terrans have plasma weapons and the Vasudans have neutron turrets or something.

What do the Shivans have as secondaries?
Title: Re: New Eyecandy Thread
Post by: Snail on January 22, 2011, 09:41:00 pm
Working form my limited knowledge:


1) If you mean anti-fighter/bomber by "anti-ship", no. There are different capital ship weapons that they use against fighters. The EA have Gattlers and Blasters (alongside flak which most factions use as standard), the Terrans have cluster shotgun weapons (among other things) and the Vasudans use spatial charges which are like energy flak or something. Bombers also have non-standard special armaments, the Terrans have PAC systems which are sort of like heavy plasma cannons for when they're out of bombs, the EA (I think) have some sort of bomber-based railgun system, the Vasudans have local SSM torpedoes (done differently to WiH) and the Shivans have bomberbeams. In INFASA the EA will also have, like, nanovirus ECM attacks too. This is just the publicly revealed stuff, there's almost certainly more sekret stuff in the works.

2) Unless things have changed, they will be closer to INFA.

3) I think they have kinetic weapons that keep enemy ships at a distance or something. They also have bloody huge blob turrets. Plus lots of other stuff we don't know about yet.
Title: Re: New Eyecandy Thread
Post by: Jellyfish on January 23, 2011, 12:54:31 am

We are systematically phasing out all our blocky ships (those made up of several cubes and an octotoad glued together and stretched).  Also, the Vasudans won't play that big of a role in INF SCP with the exception of several major battles; it'll mostly be a Terran-Terran-Shivan conflict.
Title: Introducing the Lonchos
Post by: Rampage on January 26, 2011, 01:36:44 am
EAB Lonchos
Type: Special Issue Bomber
Maneuverability: Good
Armor: Average
Primary Mounts: 3x2 + 2x2
Secondary Mounts: 2

The EAB Lonchos is the bomber of choice for elite EA bomber squadrons.  Along with the Aurora, she is at the pinnacle of EA technology and is faster and tougher than most of her GTVA counterparts.  The Lonchos is particularly dangerous in that she can easily switch from an anti-capital role attack bomber to a space superiority fighter and is thus a threat for both fighter pilots and for capital ships.

Will the EA strikecraft have some form of uniformity to them or will they as random in design to Freespace 2  Terran strikecraft?

I can't wait to see some video footage of the new assets in action, however long it takes! I have been following Inferno since day one, even contributed a model.

EA strikecraft roughly share a common theme.  This actually was an accident of development: when we did not have dedicated texturing staff, we splayed one common texture onto all our EA fighters and bombers.

The mesh and textures are good, but... I can't help it. I just totally hate to say that, but inspiration is one thing, blatant rip-off is an other. HW1 deserves better than that.

Definitely we agree with you.  However in our defense, although the first thing one would see from this mesh is the Taiidani influence (mainly through the signature tail fins), but we did not hack into a Homeworld model and modify it for our purposes (we'll leave that to the HW2FS total conversion projects out there).  Instead we created an entirely new mesh based off of fanon concept art from HW.  And of course, should one compare this mesh with those of Taiidani ships from HW1, one will immediately spot the differences as well.

There is no Inferno vs BP rivalry intended in my posts.  And there is no reason for hostility.  We mutually respect each others' projects, including all project assets.  Furthermore, one of the hallmarks of Inferno is our exclusive set of assets; we simply would like to keep it that way as our style of doing things.

Raynor is one of greatest BP symbols, and it's automatically associated with BP in people's minds... But not only with BP. Raynor is used in number of fan-made mods and it's probably the most popular fan-made ship ever created. It wasn't orginally created for BP, but BP is the most known campaign that using it. Raynor is great... But overused. That's why we have made the GTD Nephelai for Shadow Genesis. I'm fully appreciating Rampage's decision of replacing Raynor in Inferno.

Post by: asyikarea51 on February 04, 2011, 07:05:38 am
Oh, I wish, I wish...

If I was a modeller of any respectable calibre I would've changed the Icelus' appearance, maybe a little, maybe a lot, I don't know. I liked the concept of an upgraded Hecate as part of the GTVA war effort, but not the model as it exists now... the current high-poly Hecate looked... "deadlier" to me somehow. (oops hope I didn't offend starbug. :()

Replacing the Raynor? How about the Boreas? Somehow I always saw the Boreas as the Raynor's equal, only "less advanced" (in its use of FS2 Terran textures, but hey, familiarity works here, don't you think?), assuming both ships coexisted in the INF universe. Of course there's the Segomo, but since the independent SOC fleet is gone, that one's answered...

Second the notion to see Phobos/Alcyone, why not the Alexandria too. Maybe the odd transport or cargo ship for good measure. Some "new, yet not so new" ships to bridge the gap between 2367 - 239x/24xx while keeping the GTVA thematic link in place... besides, that's still 30 years of available development time... even with the an economic collapse? :doubt:

I see it like this: the EA vs. Sol war effort is nowhere near as taxing as the GTVA - Shivan war; EA had the time to make everything look uniform, menacing, fitting a certain theme. Blue. Plays to propaganda too, but it does show (in a way) that some sort of government reform took place on Earth.

The GTVA on the other hand (if they still hold that pseudo-good guy position ala R1, but that's going off-track) just design and build whatever works. Let success in combat unconsciously brainwash the people to accept the not-as-good aesthetics and eventually romanticise them. Phobos can be one example, it's (mostly) just a flying box that can shoot in any direction.

End random banter, cool stuff so far. Still not sold on the EA paint scheme but considering what I said above I can learn to accept it. Same goes for the Gagana's wing launchers, I thought they looked better and more aggressive mounted at the edges, just needed the wings and launchers themselves to look good somehow. But that one a few pages back looks more realistic, so if that's what you guys are going for, then I can't really argue, can I. :nervous: :)

There are parts that seem to be catching the light that probably shouldn't, like the more distant upper wing in comparison to the central body. It looks like it's casting a shadow at the base of the wing, but then you get a spot that's brighter than the other side, then pretty much the same until the canted portion. There are some other things like that too.

Diffuse lighting render?

I'm convinced that half of the modellers here don't know how to autosmooth/edgesplit.
Witness...every War in Heaven UEF model except the Solaris and Karuna (which were converted by people who knew what they were doing >.>)

Hell, some of the models there with proper smoothing originally lost all their smoothgroups somehow >.>
Title: Re: New Eyecandy Thread
Post by: Rampage on February 16, 2011, 12:36:38 pm
I do not handle the model conversion, and the colleague who converts these models into FS2 format uses an old version of trueSpace.  As a result, the smooth groups I created in Wings3D (aka soft and hard edges in Wings lingo) are lost.  Pity that.

Post by: Droid803 on February 16, 2011, 05:47:31 pm
Well...that's no good.
TrueSpace as a conversion route is fairly out of date, and IMO, horrible. It is pretty much the source of fudged smoothing every single old model with fudged smoothing. :(

All EA capital ships use a similar texturing scheme.  Making individual UVmaps for every ship would be nice but would consume too much time and effort.  Tile mapping is much easier at this point.

Once we release our project, the job of further upgrading our assets will hopefully be taken up by the Greater HLP Community, just like how many of us are upgrading BP's assets after they released their project.

I'm curious actually... does the Warlock still look basically the same? Because, while I loved the model, it didn't seem to fit in with the rest of the GTVA fleet in R1. Though I suppose that was more a texture related issue than anything else.

The Warlock has served R1 well and has been scrapped from our newest release candidate.  In its place we have a brand new carrier w/ a brand new mesh that will hopefully blend in w/ the other post-Capellan Terran ships (esp those w/ visible Vasudan influences) in our project database.  But unfortunately, it will not be featured in the campaign as much - - maybe one or two missions worth of glory shots.

Redoing the mapping may be a serious problem for the ToF team, I could kludge other textures onto the OTT Ryujin model when we were still using it and have it look half decent, but the Raiden is infinitely worse in its mapping.

EA Missile Cruiser (WIP)

Will it replace Aeasacus or Eclipse or will be a third cruiser?

BTW with Darkness missile barrage shot in 10th Anniversary topic it looks like EA will be a bit more missile heavy :)
You know, 10 years ago when I first saw Inferno ship gallery (months before R1 release) I imagine EA ships with no beams but with FS1 high power plasma cannons (kinda like R1 EA blob turrets) and missiles. I really love EA silver beams but I'm still kind nostalgic about that no-beamz EA :)

No-beamed EA would be too much UEF-like. The two main mods dealing with the return to Earth shouldn't be too similar that way IMHO. I think it's good that the EA have beams, and powerful ones to boot.

I think its a good idea to give the EA other weapons, as i thought their weapons in R1 where basically the same as the GTVA's cept white beams.

Post by: Rampage on February 22, 2011, 06:02:25 am
The missile cruiser, known as the EAC Soter, will not replace either cruiser from classic Inferno.  Instead it will feature as a defensive/support ship by firing long-range missiles behind the front lines.  It will not carry the iconic EA silver beam cannon but will carry long-range mass drivers, dealing pain and death to smaller (cruiser and smaller support vessels), not unlike the Vaygr Trinity Cannon from HW2.

EA beam cannon technology (or "flux cannons" as I like to call them) is quite different from those used by the GTVA, since they have no Vasudan-influenced technology.  Instead it is a proprietary design based off of the Lucifer's flux cannons from the wreckage and perfected over the course of INFA.  It is supposed to be weaker on a per-shot basis but use less power and thus can fire faster (currently not balanced).

BTW, although we take a lot of influence (a good thing) from the Homeworld series (and other sources) when designing our ships, we do not rip any ships directly from the game and claim it as our own (something one should never do).  All meshes are either redesigned from scratch or modified for FS2 and used with permission from the donor (e.g. - the EAD Basileus).  Nevertheless, we never fail to give credit to where it's due.

Really always seem to remeber the EA beams being more powerfull than the GTVA's in R1, in the first mission i can rem that the
Phobos corvette would take a huge amount of damage from the 2 ea cruisers if you didn't act fast enough.

SO this means that  both EA and GTVA beams are diffrent approach to reverse-engineered shivan beams ( that have both crazy amount of dammage and machinegun fire rate)   :)

One might think that if EA and GTVA would cooperate in beam technology they might create something that would actually have fighting chance with Shivan beams <hint for INF SCP story ;)  >

I seem to recall the Beam Cannon Arrays on most EA ships being rather large compared to their GTVA contemporaries. Maybe thats how they compensate this damage loss?

Also, I like them being referred to as Flux Cannons. Makes sense, really.

Title: Re: New Eyecandy Thread
Post by: PsychoLandlord on February 22, 2011, 11:06:47 am
The name comes from the FS1 nomenclature for the Shivan Super Laser.

Exactly why I said it makes sense. GTVA beam weaponry is built up on Shivan Beam weapon Theory - they had no Flux Cannons to take apart and study (Unless Inferno canon states that FS1 era Shivans used beams aside from the Lucifer. I forget). Therefore, GTVA beam weapons, while being similar to the Lucifer's Flux Cannons, probably don't actually utilize the same method of operation, and as such don't get the same designation.

Now, the EA on the other hand had, at the very least, the wreckage of the Lucifer's Flux cannons, and I really don't think it's too much of a stretch for one of the Lucifer's arms to have survived the blast, like in the FS1 end cutscene. Therefore, the EA has an actual, semi intact set of Flux weapons to research and back-engineer to create their beams, meaning that their beam weaponry can have the Flux Cannon moniker applied to it.
Title: Re: New Eyecandy Thread
Post by: Rampage on February 22, 2011, 01:21:23 pm
Actually it makes more sense now I think of it to make EA beam cannons overpowered but power-inefficient with a low RoF, thus forcing the EA to complement their flux cannons with ballistic missiles.

Yeah well you'll have to make due w/ the software package you're given and familiar with (in my case, PSP6), which isn't much compared to some of the more advanced suites out there in terms of vector art (what we use to draw in the little details), etc.

The fighter is the SF Incubus, and the original artist of the mesh is Bobboau.  We inherited the model a long while back.

Looks like EA will have some number of bombers:
Taiidan "bunny" light bomber
Peregrine standard bomber
Taiidan advance medium bomber (?)  - when I looks at it, it does have a GW1 Medusa bomber spirit :)
Gagana heavy bomber
Holler super heavy bomber

How GTVA Terrans fare comparing to this? AFAIK only Jotun and maybe Danaus are left from R1?


Edit:

BTW there was also another EA bombers called Leda (?) that supose to be old-gen medium bomber. Is is still in use (in INF:10th, or INF:SCP or INF:A)  ?
Title: Re: New Eyecandy Thread
Post by: Commander Zane on March 03, 2011, 08:05:10 am
Is the EAB Holler still being used?
I think the Artemis D.H. remains in Inferno, and that the GTB Phoebus was being added. That would be four GTVA bombers on the Terran side, remember there's also Vasudan ships.
What the GTVA had that the EA didn't was fighters, the Terrans alone (Including SOC) had a number of fighter classes (14) that was close to equal to the EA's entire list of classes (Including cargo and installations, being 16).
The SOC was taken off, and that gives room to add more to the EA list of Strike Craft, GTVA fighter classes are likely being taken off to do the same.

The Leda mesh was too messed up for upgrading so it was removed
The Holler is still there, but hasn't been upgraded yet.

Well we don't have a ship limit really but are trying to keep it down as the more ships we have, the more we have to upgrade and the teams too small to upgrade 150+ ships.
Title: Re: New Eyecandy Thread
Post by: Rampage on March 03, 2011, 01:52:27 pm
We will not be upgrading every ship.  Just like FSOpen, we plan to release the project first and then progressively upgrade Inferno with successive patches.  Hopefully our fanbase in the Community will gather strength and help us w/ some of these upgrades.

Title: Re: New Eyecandy Thread
Post by: Dragon on March 07, 2011, 04:26:50 pm
You could change them to yellow, then they'll look like classic "warning stripes".
In the current form, they look bad (it looks like the ship was originally yellow and got a cheap color swap somewere during the developement).

You're using an outdated beam glow, the unofficial Inferno patch has a better, animated one.

For at most one minute, when I first saw the original Alves, I thought it looked good. And then I saw the Keres.

This Alves looks great, but if I see an upgraded Keres, I might end up forgetting about this Alves altogether.
Title: Re: New Eyecandy Thread
Post by: Dragon on March 12, 2011, 11:16:34 am
Keres was lovely, but IMHO, it didn't looked quite good as Alves.
I wouldn't tell it that in it's face though (10 guns!).  :)
Title: Re: New Eyecandy Thread

16 guns.
Title: Re: New Eyecandy Thread
Post by: Snail on March 12, 2011, 11:24:13 am
The Keres was an ugly fighter in the aesthetic sense. It was a pure guns platform, possessing none of the finesse and flair of the Alves. Kinda like a micro-Lindos...
Title: Re: New Eyecandy Thread
Post by: Dragon on March 12, 2011, 11:53:48 am
Wow, you're right, 16, these gun points were DOUBLED!
That's an incredible amount of firepower, no wonder that it shredded everything even with HL-12.
Title: Re: New Eyecandy Thread
Post by: starwolf1991 on March 12, 2011, 12:27:23 pm
Correction for those who are very confused or mistaken:

The Inferno: Release 1 model of the Alves had 8 gunbanks, split into 2 groups of 4. Meanwhile, it had 2 missilebanks made up of groups of 6 missileports.

What you are seeing in this lovely WIP are waaaayyy bigger missilebanks with underslung gunbanks, which match up with the old model. Regardless, it'll make older fighters look like a pushover and send Shivans running back to their capital ships!  :p

/Cheers self for studying the old model and being a smart cookie  :D
Title: Re: New Eyecandy Thread
Post by: Snail on March 12, 2011, 12:46:49 pm

Yeah well, back when I was playing INFR1, I still held the view that the best ships have more guns on them. It stuck for about five years, and even now, it's still a bit sticky.

In comparison to every other fan-made FreeSpace ship, however, the Keres doesn't have the most gun banks. That (dis)honour goes to what you once called the Shait.
Title: Re: New Eyecandy Thread

Shait or Shai?

Post by: Woolie Wool on March 13, 2011, 01:30:51 pm
I'm pretty sure it's Shai, but "GVF ****e" has a ring to it. But the thing was, the Shai was designed for a special weapon in OTT that was designed to spew huge volumes of shots that individually did very little damage.

Post by: Snail on March 13, 2011, 01:58:03 pm
Yeah it had 32 gunbanks IIRC.

Post by: Dragon on March 14, 2011, 10:22:37 am
For balance, it could've had flimsy armor (which it looks like it does have) or medicore weapon energy, allowing it to fire one shot before having to recharge.
Ask Woomeister for details.

It was balanced out by its special "Sandqueen" weapon that was much weaker on a per-shot basis than other primaries. Those huge gun banks did not take normal guns.

Looking at the size comparison of the Lonchos and Aetna, I think if the stripes around the canopy are going to stay, they should be the same dull low-visibility grey and blue the Aetna is using, it looks a lot better and fitting than the blueberry candycane stripes the Lonchos is using.

It is Vaygr-Taiidani, but it's from a different mod...I'm trying to find which it was.

Title: Re: New Eyecandy Thread
Post by: Rampage on March 22, 2011, 05:30:59 am
@Mobius: I specifically left instructions on the internal forums not to release pictures of the new "Raiden" on ModDB.  The reason I didn't want it posted is so that people wouldn't murmur that we hijacked another person's work and credited it as our own.  As for posting stuff on ModDB w/o team authorization, this is the second time it's happened, so please do not let it happen again.

But since the cat's out of the bag, the model used by the "Raiden", now known as the "Kyrios", is a faithful replica (actual mesh differ) of the Taiidani/Vaygr Qwaar-Jet heavy cruiser from PDS (also used by the Complex mod).  B/c of this leak, we will not take any credit for this model's design, and all credits will be given to the original creators and to Relic for designing such a [email protected]$$ ship.

-R

EDIT: @Mobius: Please forgive me if my rebuke sounds a bit harsh.  I'm not angry nor am I venting at you, but we need to work together as a team in order to get things done at the right pace and on time.  As for pictures of the Kyrios, they can remain on ModDB.

Is this a Magnus? That large carrier what Moonred worked on it? It's great! I see refreshed old SOC textures on it, good work! :yes:
I think it's shape is good. EA ships should be big and blocky, post capella terran GTVA ships can be smoothy.

That's not a reason to make Terran Super Carrier a herring. With more blocky shape (kinda something bettween this and old Warlock model) it would be OK.

Is ther a reason why my beloved badass Nemesis has so many yellow and green windows/lights? It looks like a christmass tree. Comparing to the new Phobos, Deimos of new Warlock the Nemesis has more windows that a surface skyscraper. It looks bad :P

The problem with block GTVA is that it screams INFR1 to me. Going away from its cons while keeping the original feel is much better than staying blocky for the sake of staying blocky IMHO.

By blocky I don't mean low poly. Icelus is blocky but good, new Phobos is blocky and good, Odin is blocky and good. Slim and curvy design is way to Blue Planet'ish.

Who said that? :P You're using full Strattcom's fleetpack in your SAtN, with ugly textures. I love blocky ships, but curvy ships also can be very nice. I think Inferno ships are well balanced, enough blockyness and enough curvyness.

Thats why it didn't get added, I thought. Someone posted that exact redesign (I dont think it was you, but if that actually is your design then I must be thinking of the wrong thing) right around when Cad was trying to move away from using licensed ships, and it got shot down pretty hard.

But yeah, I've noticed that the X3, Relic, and Hard Light forums tend to share a large amount of members.

We're considering scrapping it yes, and yes if we do we'll release the last version of the model.
We don't have the time to bring the Amritaya up to that Sathanas quality and it looks really bad next to it  :nervous:
Plus we need to focus on upgrading the Gigas as that's more important, and difficult. The new Sathanas will easily fit into the Amritayas mission appearance so it shouldn't be an issue for us to swap it out.

I like that Claymore a few pages back (YEAH CLAYMORE!!!), but not really into the Hercules-esque cockpit though. A cockpit like the kind seen on some old screenshots from way back (those that resemble modern-day fighters... ack I can't seem to find that old EA four-fighter image... EDIT: found it http://media.moddb.com/images/games/1/13/12178/Update270806.jpg (http://media.moddb.com/images/games/1/13/12178/Update270806.jpg)) seems more suited to a sleek and fast ship like it I guess. Or maybe it looks bad from that camera angle, I dunno...

That said, why the move to Homeworld-esque assets for EA? Doesn't feel... "right"... to me but hey all of this is just a $0.02 apart from it maybe speeding up development time or something. :nervous: (Yeah me being curious again, don't take it as offense :nervous:)

About EACa Tyrannos name. Could you possibly change it to something else? Like roman Praetor?

I know that tyrannos is ancient Greek Tyrant, but first - it's an agressive name fitting for attack ship like destroyer or corvette,  and second, I can help to thin T-rex, or tyrannosaurus rex when I heard tyrannos, even if it's completely wrong parallel, it still sounds agerssive.
It's supose to be light carrier so the name should be less agresive, but still about control/hierarchy, like Praetor.

Actually "tyrannos" was a rather neutral term to the ancient greek (in Plato's Politeia the "tyrannic constitution" is a simple follow up of a "democracy" becoming defective); most monarchic rulers held the title of "tyrannos" until the hellenistic period (then commonly used title became "basileus")

the aggressive contotation is a (mostly) modern addition promoted by authors of the Reinissance and Romatic Periods
Title: Re: New Eyecandy Thread
Post by: Mobius on May 15, 2011, 04:07:38 pm
What Orpheus said. The term has been used until 1300 I think, and the negative connotation is relatively recent. FYI, "basileus" is pretty much the equivalent of "king", though its root is related to the Greek word for "noble", and that's not a surprise because the two titles were connected. These terms may have even been synonims.

Back on topic, I consider Tyrannos a good name for a command ship, a role that is somehow played in battle by the EA carrier.
Title: Re: New Eyecandy Thread

I haven't thought about it from ancient Greek perspective, but yeah, this way Tyrannos sounds more neutral.

However I think that roman naming would fit EA rather well.

GTA -> greek naming, science, exploration, common protection against Persia....I mean Zods :)

Then EA -> replace GTA just like Romans replaced Greeks, plus power, order, militaristic, preparation for total war against evil from beyond know space.

Naming conventions will probably be discussed somehow, somewhere in the future (IMO there are too many Greek names at the moment). INFASA follows a different naming convention (most names are in Latin), intentionally meant to be classic... in the literary sense.

In most of the Homeworld 2 mods it saw use in, it was generally covered in more guns than the AI knew what to do with.

I was never a fan of that particular model when it was still seeing use in HW, but that was usually because it looked out of place next to the stock ships. Hope you guys do it more justice.

Damnit Mobius

No, what hes leaked there is a simple port of the INF SCP based Ancients campaign table testing, it was extremely early prototype and will have to be redone for the new modpack build. What I was testing there was incorrporating the upgraded versions of the publically released ASW ships (we donated some of their current fleet to them) and some of our ships that they upgraded for ASW, plus some of our unused leftovers which they didn't use.

If we do build it it'll be after the main modpack release, though we are leaving enough hooks in the tables to allow it to easily slot in without a major overhaul (species support etc)
Title: Re: New Eyecandy Thread
Post by: Mobius on May 17, 2011, 09:59:37 am
In the Inferno 10th Anniversary Edition FAQ (which is also on ModDB, by the way) it's clearly stated that the Ancients will not be included in the main INFR1U release, so consider those as samples of raw testing, not actual shots from INFR1U. I'm editing the descriptions to clarify that.

Speaking of the mentioned collaboration with the ASW Team, this is not news. They helped us upgrade the SI Arachnas, for example.
Title: Re: New Eyecandy Thread
Post by: Woomeister on May 17, 2011, 10:06:37 am
Yes but I'm not even guaranteeing that Gateways was going to be made, so posting prototype shots publically makes everyone assume it will be made.

I like how that :v: concept seems to fit so well with Vasudan philosophy and approach on battles. A Vasudan would volunteer to fly a fragile afterburner with guns to protect, let's say, a damaged destroyer from enemy attacks, and that one Vasudans wouldn't care about his/her personal safety. A Terran interceptor pilot would never fly something that fragile, regardless of the importance of the asset he/she's protecting from incoming enemy bombers.

In poor words, I find the Ennead purely Vasudan.

Because in Retail SOC loops you're flying alongside your enemy.

Post by: MatthTheGeek on June 04, 2011, 07:41:51 am
Again, last time I checked, the Artemis D.H. wasn't a SOC ship. Just a prototype not yet mass produced.

And in SOC loops, you're not always flying alongside your enemy. When rescuing Snipes in the nebula, the Erinyes you fly have the exact same paint as those you'll fly in the Blue Lions, which isn't a SOC squadron. Same for the Erinyes saving you in Love the Treason and Hate the Traitor.

Maybe in-game, but in storytelling/universe term no device is completely safe from "incidents". Sooner or later some of them will fail, and at least one incident will cause casualties. Things break, you can't entirely prevent it.

@Trivial Psychic: Yeah, that was the same thing than come to my mind when I looked at this new Inferno bomber :)

Anyway - high-tech modern Medusa will always be kickass, but I hope than texture-wise it will be kinda like Artemis D.H.

Late response, but I must note that I liked the more streamlined look of the Herc Mk. III as seen in the original model. The smooth lines were a nice transition from the Herc 2 to Inferno's ship.

Another terrible name that doesn't fit. This bomber is effectively spawned from the Medusa. If say, the GTB Medusa were named Gaia, naming this Medusa would work. But it's not so the name doesn't fit.

Since it's so similar to GTF Banshee, then maybe GTB Wraith, or GTB Vampire?  (who need greek naming so much? eventually we run out of good greek names - Euryale - that's even hard to speak)

Yes, the guns are now mounted around the nose, with missile launchers moved to wingtips. The reverse of the original design, much more logical (this does make DF missiles next to useless on that ship though).

They will be compatible with it, but on these mounts they're barely useful against anything smaller than a Jotun.
On the other hand, given the average size of ships in Inferno, this may not be that much of a drawback.  :)

Naw, that's only necessary if you have like, off-axis missile banks with gun convergence (in which case you get dumbfires going out at funny angles and being generally useless)

The Claymores will most likely be resized before the project is released.

The new craft depicted on the previous page is not a heavy assault fighter; it's an EA bomber of epic proportions.

Since there have been a few questions about changes to the first mission. I did a quick runthrough of it as it currently stands for you to have a look at. You can find the vid on the website as well.

Overall except for a few ship classes and name changes it's more or less the same, except the Eclipse cruisers don't just sit there and do nothing now. Since it is the first mission we didn't want to change too much so that it feels familiar.

You can see some of the new effects in action and yes we do have a HTL Mihos buts its untextured at the moment, so older model for now :)

The mission still needs a few tweaks and final balancing, but the overall style will remain the same.
Title: Re: New Eyecandy Thread

Well it wouldn't of been a good video if all you saw was nebula because I'd have to evade a lot of those attacks. Don't worry it's not that easy on higher difficulties :)
I take better videos when I don't have to worry about damage since I can stop and watch a few things happen (like stuff exploding) without worrying about the claymore on my tail.
Taking a full hit from an EA Eclipse swarm missile will just kill you on higher difficulties not just bring down your shield like it did in that vid.

1) Is it me, or EA is now using "shotgun flaks" that are kinda similar to BP UEF "shotgun flaks"?
2) That light-green EA blob/pulse turret bullet is bigger than railgun bullet, but I presume that it's weaker than railgun?
3) Shouldn't cruisers be a fighter-killers in new Inferno? Coz those two Eclipses seems to have a hard time dealing with Alpha 1 (and Mihos supose to be a lighter fighter?).
4) That Deimos holding possition (while the Eclipses trying to flank her) looks kinda odd.
Title: Re: New Eyecandy Thread

1. Regular flak
2. Those are anti-fighter turrets
3. If you play on normal or higher yeah, like I said earlier the eclipse stinger turrets will take care of you if you aren't careful. Though the Aesacus is more of a fighterkiller than the Eclipse is.

I was the one who suggested this to him. I didn't think he'd actually do it...

I guess I found a worthy replacement for my agin 2GW Perseus :)  (I never really like the Perseus Adv).

Well the Perseus isn't going anywhere either.

I wonder how do you plan to ballance the stuff with so many similar fighters, like Alves and Herc mk.3 or Perseus Adv and Banshee?
They will be some kind of next generation?
Like Herc mk.3 and Perseus as pre-new shivan invasion types
and
Alves + Bashee as state of the art, recent addition to the fleet?

EDIT:
What will be the basic/common Terran fighter in inferno? Mihos or Ezehiel?

Mihos is the light fighter
Ezechiel is the medium, or multipurpose fighter
Herc 3 is the heavy fighter
Alves is your lots of guns/little secondaries fighter
Perseus Adv is your standard interceptor which carries up to the Hastor in quad link form just like R1
Banshee is the advanced interceptor and is the only fighter that carries the Hailstorm cannon

The Vasudans and EA also have 2 interceptors

There will probably be several missions towards the end where you can fly EA fighters, but most of the time you will be flying GTVA Terran fighters.

Maybe make a quick gauntlet mission where you can pick any flyable craft you want ?

The modelling work is excellent. I've always imagined the Banshee with a Athena-style rounded cockpit, but eh, it's your artistic vision.
