Title: RELEASE: Massive assets release thread
Post by: Nighteyes on July 29, 2011, 06:54:23 pm
Dear community, after a short debate(started by Shiv :)) our team decided to move to an open assets development, meaning all that was made for Earth Defence exclusively will now be public.

Over the years we made many models, nebula, skyboxs and music, and due to the nature of our team, being mostly artists and not so many fredders, were at a state where were waiting for the missions to be made, and all these lovely models don't get used by other people...
so, here we are releasing most of the assets we made, we hope you enjoy them as much as we enjoyed making them, use them as you please and credit where credit is due, and we hope you will enjoy our main campaign when its finally released :)

THANK YOU! Thank you very much for being so kind to release so many awesome ships. They will be added to my collection asap and will very likely see the day in my campaign ;) This made my day, as Ive been having a hard time having to limit especially in terms of Shivan stuff. Also great other ships, will test them out first thing tomorrow.

Keep up the great work with everything, hope to see even more stuff in the nearby future :)

Good decision fellas, I can see many of these assets being used in future mods.... we can use ED assets for upcoming mod releases right?

Also, the Hera is out! I coveted that thing when I first saw it. Christmas in July.

EDIT: Advise labling each individual link

The Hera certainly looks familiar, nice to finally see it textured. I'm sure this stuff will be getting used pretty heavily in the days to come.

Hate to interrupt an unserious discussion, but I have something serious to say.  :)
I'm currently short on smoke effects of all sorts, interesting "flash" effects (capflash from mediavps starts getting boring) and particles. Thruster effects would be also welcome.
Does ED has any such effects? If it has, could they be added to the release?

I've been releasing all the effects I did as I made them, you will just need to wait a bit until Diaspora is released, the amount of effects that you will be able to play with then will surely satisfy you ;)

Post by: Nighteyes on August 01, 2011, 05:46:42 pm
Ooh shiny, the nebulas are fantastic!

ahh it seems everybody just wants models, but there are plenty of models around, and everybody is using the same nebula... IMO the new nebula and background assets are the big thing here, and I hope they will get used in the mediavps as they are a pretty big step up from what we had previously :)

I agree no much Zod love around, and I also agree its much more fun making Shivan "stuff" ;)

I've been releasing all the effects I did as I made them.
There was an awesome railgun effect with blue smoke. It's not been released, so I assumed that either you're not the only one doing effects for ED, or there are effects which you didn't want to release. Basically, I'd be really grateful for such smoke, but in white and black (blue could also come in handy, but later).
Title: Re: RELEASE: Massive assets release thread
Post by: crizza on August 01, 2011, 07:39:29 pm
First of all: Nice assets here;)
Question: Since ED uses the GVCv Petbe called Nekhbet and since I'm not smart enough to copy&paste a working table file...Is it possible that you..."lend" me a proper table file?
Since I'm just fredding for my own fun, it wouldn't show up in any other mod.
Title: Re: RELEASE: Massive assets release thread
Post by: Droid803 on August 02, 2011, 12:53:58 am
Probably won't help you at all since the version you have and the version they have have a different turret loadout, meaning you'll have to reassign weapons anyway.
Which is about 90% of what you have to do to get a working table for the GVCv Petbe from the Sobek...

And if you don't want to do that...

LERN.

SERIOUSLY.

People that are not willing to learn something as easy as making a working table file shouldn't be modding IMO. You're just setting yourself up for massive failure in the future. If you want to be a successful modder you have to be willing to continuously self-teach... Which is why I don't release any table files with my models. Because anyone wanting to use it seriously should be able to provide their own! Tabling is EASY. Easier than finishing the FRED tutorial.

Sorry for the massive rant. I guess I'm just disregarding all the people who just want to ctrl-click a bunch of ships and watch them maul each other. I don't understand the fun in that at all though.

Post by: Snail on August 02, 2011, 01:15:49 am
Droid might be a little grumpy today but yeah, the Petbe model and Nekhbet table are not compatible, so it wouldn't really help you there.

I'm not sure if we will have time to finish touching up the models for Act 1... or if someone is even willing to do it...

HUD graphics probably won't be released, as some things we decided to keep for ourselves, we did give away 90% of our assets after all, we need some surprises as well ;)

Few months i hope. Also, some stuff from our asset release was incomplete. Agias and Achilles didn't have textured cockpits, Atlantis was released without LODs and debris... Most of them are completed now, but not everything. Give us some time, we're busy team :P

I don't have internet connection good enough to upload files that big, and I don't have original rar files. A lot of these changed since previous release.

If someone still has the files, go on and upload them.

As far as I know, the Bhaal was not released in this asset pack, unless it was renamed for ED.

However, I do still have these files. Here's what I have (http://www.ciinet.org/kevin/EDAssets.7z).
