Mentu is looking gorgeous with those PBR textures. Great stuff! Would love to see more of what this initiative has to offer.

Get your ass moving pilot! Stop taking in the looks and defend the Galatea! :D

I'm sure Captain Captain of the GTD Sasquash would prefer the awesome video footage of the mortar swarms to Alpha 1 defending warships.

Re: A celebration of Freespace
Since Majorvador released his Sins of a Blue Planet TC for Sins of a Solar Empire in an alpha state, I've been playing with the game files, adding abilities, but also borrowing effects from the Distant Stars mod and enhancing the weapon effects, which as stock are all but invisible at any kind of range.

I've been trying to reach him to see if he'd like them, and some help to move it along, but haven't gotten any reply after a couple weeks as of this writing. So until I do hear back, it'll sit safe on my hard drive and my dropbox for me to enjoy.

Not exactly pure Freespace, but I figured what the heck, worth a share!

Neato!

You should also make a post in the release thread in the sins of a bp subforum so he's more likely to see.

These textures. This ship. Where can I acquire this for my own viewing pleasure?

Re: A celebration of Freespace
That's just a (9-year old) texture replace of the Hecate using what appears to be Deimos tiles. Just fiddle around with that in PCS2?

Re: A celebration of Freespace
If I remember right that was me trying to make a "dark" version of the tiles used for the Hecate in the same style as the Arcadia and Orion.

 
Re: A celebration of Freespace
Darn, was hoping it was an actual reskin. It looks gorgeous. I have yet to figure out how textures work in PCS2...

Anyways, old as it is, I've always admired it. It's a right purdy lookin Hecate. :)

Re: A celebration of Freespace
It's just simple tile swap. If you open PCS2, you will see Textures section on the right bar. If model is actually tilemapped like Hecate pictured above, you may swap it's textures with ease.

I used to love reskins.  I did one very similar to that with the Hecate, also redid the Orion and Hecate in the Iceni/Colossus textures editing them to be super overpowered.

I remember there was one mod on Volition Watch called Blackfleet or something similar, it gave the GTVA fleet a uniform black look which I thought was cool.

The Blackfleet mod?  I don't think so, not unless they were darkened significantly.  It was at least ten years ago that I last played with it and I've had no luck finding it again so it could well have been.

Re: A celebration of Freespace
I had a go at recreating the unified fleet, with Deimos textures this time, it's more difficult now than it used to be since most of the models have the textures baked on rather than tiled.  The Vasudan ships and the Colossus look pretty terrible, the Hecate and Orion still look decent enough.  The nameplate being an integral texture on the Orion means it's not as uniform as it can be.

Re: A celebration of Freespace
Delicious. I especially love the Hecate with that look.

Re: A celebration of Freespace
Well there are some ships for a completely unified GTVA fleet in which Terrans and Vasudans use the same ships. I bet the NTF rebellion wouldn't have happened with that. :p

Nyctaeus, it isn't like you have to use that texture pack, relax. :pimp:

 
Re: A celebration of Freespace
Yeah Nyctaeus can choose from tons of textures for his cool ships. :nod:
Also if all ship's he made would use the same textures the user made ships category on the wiki would look somewhat more unified too :D

Re: A celebration of Freespace
Kinda kidding in previous post :]. Not my mod, not my choice. I don't like unified fleets because unified textures are killing unique characters and vibe of each ship. Inferno went this way and now it's up to me and Rampage to rework whole EA fleet in Inferno to purge our sins :P. Using the same maps is nothing bad, but I strongly recommend to at least mix various tile sets on different ships. Similarities between ships of the same factions are strongly advised, but unified look... As I said, please don't.
