Is Freespace suppose to look this good? =P (Image Heavy)
I was shocked and awed at this! I bought yesterday a Raedon 7500 viddy card (64meg DDR), and like running BOB's ship trail EXE w/ all the other SCP additions so far, and i was shocked that the hulls of the ships look truelly metalic, the reflections were great, volumetric lighting, and i think my viddy cards anti-alaising is redicoulusly supurb to my old tnt2.


THE OLD:


The NEW!:








Thanks SCP guys for making this games engine so great that it motivated me to get a new VIDDY CARD!

Could you please PM me with or post here, all the different features your using.  I have fs2 open 3.5.5.  Im assuming most of the features are in that.

And I still cant figure out how to run multiple feautes like 3.5.5 w/ obs thrusters.

Textures are good, but they are poorly aligned...

Look a bit closer, you can see they don't exaclty fit on some places..

Anyway,..yeah...FS2 now looks better than ever...

I'm a SCP Beta Tester so i have access to some EXE's of 3.5.5 and its varients made by BOB. He has made the betas of the Zoom perspective (which i think went back to the drawing board, the zoom wasnt too good at first); The Dynamic Lighting and Hull reflection code (tm) and the Engine trails EXE w/ new engine trail textures & ANTI CLIPPING MODELS!

Look for BOBs threads and test em out. Im using his engine glows/ dynamic lighting.

The 1st photo of my OLD card, that ships i forgot the orignal name I didnt make that Aeolus varient. BUt i made its textures. the Brown thing in the background is from BWO.

The rest of the photos, the ones with the same "Blue and Window & White" Like textures I created. They are XT-Mod's"

Actually, I think FS2 explosions are better than a lot around today. Now if someone can re-create them higher resolution... THAT would be better :D

It wouldn't be too hard to make the explosions twice thier size. I could do them if I weren't so lazy...

Do them! God knows it'd be great to have some decent 1280x1024 resolution ani. files to go with the game (warp / flak / explosion / shockwaves)

Any card that supports DirectX 8.1 should give you access to all the new graphical features.

Don't suppose a good ole TNT2 would fit in that category? :p  Yes, indeed I need an upgrade.  Anyone got any suggestions that are under $50?
