Re: A celebration of Freespace
They're the same skins used in BluePlanet.
I needed to make them fit with the Raynor to an extent.

The models are only slightly modified themselves (fixing up the thruster points and paths).
If you want them, I guess I could share, though FSMODS might not be the best place since then there would be doubles.

And is that the GTD GBC in kara's FAQ, only upgraded?

Actually, no. Mine has turrets. :D

A little skybox idea I came up with...

Re: A celebration of Freespace
I love that skybox. It reminds me of FS1 somehow. Unlike FS2, which was like a big colorful happyland with nebulae everywhere, FS1 had this sort of dark, evil void sort of feeling. :yes:

I'd love to see FS1 nebulas implemented back to the FS2.

Re: A celebration of Freespace
The Twist of Fate demo is pretty close:



This is an old screenshot and there are no glowmaps because I had just gotten 3.6.10 mediavp betas and the destroyer is textured for 3.6.9, but it shows the background. It has some grayish blues, some straight blues, and some purplish ones, but it's pretty gloomy compared to the colorful toothpaste smears of retail FS2.

Re: A celebration of Freespace
Too bad this screenshot doesn't show the Kismat's glowpoints... :( They run up along the long...spine-thing.
Excuse the asteroids behind nebulas. I don't know how to make a skybox, so I used the INFA asteroid field, and slapped nebulae on top  :nervous:


I'll leave it up to you to guess what the heck is going on here. Yes, I'm in a frakking Taurvi (with afterburner, since its not fun without one). Yes, there are some things blurred out.

Re: A celebration of Freespace
Err ... a Shivan ship with glowpoints? :wtf: It would take a lot of convincing to get me to like that :doubt:

Some of those nebulae look stretched too.

Re: A celebration of Freespace
The nebulae look stretched 'caus I suck at doing backgrounds.  :lol:
I copied an existing one and change them names... :P

As for the glowpoints... what is wrong with Shivan ships with glowpoints? Ok, right. None of the stock ships have them...is that a problem?

Re: A celebration of Freespace
Glowpoints ... just ... don't ... seem ... Shivan to me.  I doubt that the Shivans would have a reason to make their ships shine like christmas trees.  Glowpoints are usually used as guide lights or to supplement floodlights on a glowmap.

Are those nebulas applied to background with the FRED2 nebula background system or are they a skybox texture? Looks like former to me, but I can't be sure...

What does? Both the ships that Droid803 posted are from Inferno Release 1 (the first is a reskinned SD Kismat and the second is a SCv Scylla corvette)

Re: A celebration of Freespace
Looks bigger than a Scylla. And it looks similar to the new Gigas. Or it may be your new jugg.

The new Gigas looks like a Rakshasa on steroids? Right?

I know, normal Shivan ships don't have glowpoints, but without them, I can't see the spine on the Kismat from some angles (and subsequently run into it). Then guide lights they are :P
