Re: A celebration of Freespace
@Dekker Yeah, the first part of the mission is training, but as you can see, it gets more interesting later. ;)

The Attack Carrier appear in StarFox/StarWing and StarFox64/Lylat Wars.

@IP We've updated the particle and are now using an alpha blended smoke particle.


Some more:

Re: A celebration of Freespace
Sure. ;)

It will be in the next MediaVP anyway. I'll PM you a download link. I'll probably redo it at some point though. It's very ... 'basic'.

I took them before I was bored... but now that I am bored, I'm posting them.  :lol:

Oh, I instantly feel 10% less bored. Nice.

Amazing, DaB. I'm really impressed. This will be what gets FS2 reinstalled on my computers since my last formats!  :nod: :yes:

Check out this screeny!

 
Re: A celebration of Freespace
Is it just me, or do the transparent cockpits look a little too transparent?


Nice pic, but seems unbalanced. Might try backing up and centering the Apollo.

Re: A celebration of Freespace
What? Why? The Apollo flying by the camera is the whole point of the bloody picture! You want a perfect shot of an Apollo, go somewhere else, he made that because it's a unique view.

 
Re: A celebration of Freespace
All right all right!

:throws hands up:


I'm not exactly an experienced art appreciator! I just said what occured to me upon seeing the pic.

Sorry, FS Freak... :(

Re: A celebration of Freespace
Freak, what command line options are you using?

I'm not exactly sure - it's difficult to say by that low-res screenshot you posted - but it seems to me at least that you might not be using -spec and -env (and you might also want to enable alpha env mapping, too). That is one reason why the cocpit glass could look that transparent. Other is that it looks like that just by chance, because there's nothing to reflect...


I'm just asking because my Apollo's cockpit glass looks about this:

]


You can see the stars and nebulae reflecting from the glass. The only edit I gave this one was crop it a bit to reduce the image size a bit, and the empty sky wasn't relevant. This was the command line I use:

Code: [Select]
C:\Pelit\Freespace2_SCP\fs2_open_369_RC6.exe -mod fsport,mediavp368zeta -spec -glow -env -jpgtga -mipmap -nomotiondebris -2d_poof -noscalevid -missile_lighting -img2dds -cache_bitmaps -dualscanlines -targetinfo -orbradar -rearm_timer -ballistic_gauge -ship_choice_3d -3dwarp -warp_flash -snd_preload -alpha_env -fps  -ambient_factor 18.3 -spec_exp 16.7 -spec_point 0.6 -spec_static 0.9 -spec_tube 18

Oh, and just to keep the topic in rails, something little born from playing with beams...

High Noon!



GTVA Colossus giving one of their best pilots a close shave...



And finally, GVD Psamtic beaming the living daylights out of NTC Belisarius.




The beams are by no means ready for large-scale use yet, there's a lot of work needed to be done with them, but I have an idea which I'll try some day this week... ;7

There are three things that last forever: Abort, Retry, Fail - and the greatest of these is Fail.

It's allright.  It looked better in flight, though.  You could actually see the glass then.  I guess I don't have the 'big screenshot file' mod installed yet.
