Bah he should of put a link in one of those smilies :p

Anyway back on topic :p

I've fixed most of the geometry errors that the newer FRED build complains about. 3 models to go, though it looks like the subspace node model has the same problem.

Then I have to redo several archives models which have the same problem.

Then I have to figure out why one of the EA fighters is giving a debug build error...

Is it the normal-capping error ? If yes, what's the cause of that and how do I fix it ?

This one:

Serious problem loading model 'x', 'y' normals capped to zero


I fix it by either 2 methods depending what's wrong with it.

1. I open the model in Truespace, right hand click it to edit the mesh, then retriangulate it. The polycount should go down a bit and that seems to fix it. It's a weird way to fix it but it worked for most of them so far.

2. I have to move some near overlapping verts so that I can weld them together using 3DE. I only had to do this on the Ophion since the slice plane I used during UV Mapping caused some corruption.

For us it seems to happen a lot on models that have been converted to 3ds at some point. Looks like overlapping verts that haven't been welded correctly cause it.

Ok, thanks.

The Nova from TBP yields that error in newer FRED builds, although it works normally in FRED and ingame.

Yeah same with us. It was going to be annoying to use the new fred build we have, so I thought I better get these fixed. 20 of our main mod ships give this error, only 3 left to fix. From the extra mods, 2 Ancient ships need fixing and 1 SOC fighter. I haven't had time to reload my other wip archives stuff to see if they need upgrading yet.

I doubt we'll make a release before christmas now, only a few members have staff have showed up since the move and only 1 mission designer has downloaded the current version of the mod.

We've had at least 3 weeks of no progress and I don't think we'll get it done in under 4 weeks.
