Snail means that this would be coveted desktop material and would have crashed TinyPic's servers from all the frenetic downloading.  XD

Re: A celebration of Freespace
Would someone please make me a desktop? (I need something 1280x800, preferably with explosions and normal and no nebula, sorta like some of the Aeolus shots earlier)

Thanks!

Re: A celebration of Freespace
1. Set your FS display setting to whatever you want.
2. Go into FRED and make a mission with whatever you want. (it's not hard at all)
3. Play your mission in FS, press Shift+O to hide the HUD, the Num-/, Num-* and Num-del keys to change views.
4. Press PrintScreen to take screenshots
5. Take a whole bunch, and sort through them later.

Screenshots made!

And with Alt-Pause you can stop the simulation but control the cameras... at least if you already are on the outside free view.
There are three things that last forever: Abort, Retry, Fail - and the greatest of these is Fail.

 
Re: A celebration of Freespace
The key is to get yourself in the middle of some heavy sh*t and start flying around looking for what could be awesome shots, and not really caring about the mission.  I might load and reload a mission with lots of eye candy like 20 times just to take shots in the thick of things constantly getting fried.

While in Alt-Pause mode, pressing Enter will activate the external freeview, and pressing space will deactivate the HUD.

It's a case of Tortoise vs Hare... the tortoise will notice everything at his speed; so will the Snail.  ;)

To consider the Earth as the only populated world in infinite space is as absurd as to assert that in an entire field of millet, only one grain will grow. - Metrodorus of Chios
I wept. Mysterious forces beyond my ken had reached into my beautiful mission and energized its pilots with inhuman bomb-firing abilities. I could only imagine the GTVA warriors giving a mighty KIAAIIIIIII shout as they worked their triggers, their biceps bulging with sinew after years of Ivan Drago-esque steroid therapy and weight training. - General Battuta

Re: A celebration of Freespace
Tell me that that Myrm isn't a reskinned/hi-poly version, cuz it looks kinda bad compared to, say, that Fenris/Leviathan, or the Zeus...

"...The quintessential quality of our age is that of dreams coming true. Just think of it. For centuries we have dreamt of flying; recently we made that come true: we have always hankered for speed; now we have speeds greater than we can stand: we wanted to speak to far parts of the Earth; we can: we wanted to explore the sea bottom; we have: and so  on, and so on: and, too, we wanted the power to smash our enemies utterly; we have it. If we had truly wanted peace, we should have had that as well. But true peace has never been one of the genuine dreams - we have got little further than preaching against war in order to appease our consciences. The truly wishful dreams, the many-minded dreams are now irresistible - they become facts." - 'The Outward Urge' by John Wyndham

"The very essence of tolerance rests on the fact that we have to be intolerant of intolerance. Stretching right back to Kant, through the Frankfurt School and up to today, liberalism means that we can do anything we like as long as we don't hurt others. This means that if we are tolerant of others' intolerance - especially when that intolerance is a call for genocide - then all we are doing is allowing that intolerance to flourish, and allowing the violence that will spring from that intolerance to continue unabated." - Bren Carlill

Re: A celebration of Freespace
I guess it's because the high poly Myrm model is only, like, 1/4 the polies of the Zeus or Levy. It still looks good IMO.

Re: A celebration of Freespace
The textures are mainly what bothered me in those pics.

Yepp, that's the "HTL" Myrmidon.


Anyway... I think my PC finally runs a bit better now, or at least it didn't crash for a while now.

So I was able to take more pics.
