Well, I should point out now that I am only able to convert from .cob to .pof using cob2fs2.  PCS crashes.:nervous:

So the images before, well they were done in TS, which allows for smoothing, but cob2fs2 does not support smoothing, so the models come out faceted....

Oh, and Lightspeed, check your PM box (in about 30 secs-1min)

qark based computing is still in development. The underlying theory is still being developed

How about some missiles that make sense? Lose the aerodynamic fins, give them engines offset from the centerline, as well as thrusters up front by the nose.

LS, can I ask one silly little favor of you first?

It's something I could do, if my PC was working, and I wasn't so lazy as of late... but think you could have a whack at making the lights.pcx map animated with little twinkling lights? ;7 Probably easier to blacken ou the lights on the original and make an animated glowmap, but... er... please? :)

It'd look pretty sweet on big ships, and that thingy I made... ;)

D'you think they switch the lights on and off all the time? ;)

Nonetheless i'll have a go when I start working on the glowmaps. I'll make it 30 frames or so with a framerate of "1" or "2" -- so it will be more realistic :)

Right now i'm having a hard time getting the Circe to look how I want it to.

More like a framerate of one frame every 5 seconds I'd think.

As that isn't possible I'll do 30 frames, and change the lighted windows every 10-20 frames a bit. with a framerate of "1" this will create the right effect.

Thats, intresting.  Need to see ingame to really give an opinon.  Like the SDG, the still shots don't do it justice.

Oh, btw Lightspeed, are you planing on doing the FS1 weapons too? ;)

Thanks for the reply :)

I think Solatar was doing the FS1 weaps, so i'll wait him to finish his stuff. If can always do them if I don't like his results ;)

If I do like them (which I hope) i'll prolly 32-bittify them, add some extra effects here n' there :)

BTW-- Is there a maximum number of weapons that can be specified in weapons.tbl? If so, how much weapons are possible?

I've had... some ideas and i need to know that first ;)

...Hm... I don't remember there being a weapon limit... but there may be a table size limit, also...

Not that I know of.  As far as I know, the only limit on the weapons table is size of file, and thats like, 800kb+ now?



I've got 182 seperate weapons, in a 212KB file, no problems.;)

Oh, and Lightspeed, I've cleaned out some of my PM inbox.
