Re: The Hard Light Productions Installation
Here's my part for the installation... Though I must say, it's not completely Paint job. The background is from a certain part of the sky, the Sobek is from screenshot and the effect of the corvette penetrating the force field protecting the shipyards is made with GIMP.



EDIT: Forgot to add the addition in itself... here it is:



Actually, it was even more hideously big originally... I figured that hell, it will take too much space that way.

Right now it's 50% from the original - it might be even 33%, here's a test...

33%

Dunno where it would go though...I'll just post it here.



Includes!

-Anti-lurker/Hacker Cannons (In Ceiling and Opened.)

Uhh, I thought we needed a bigger beam cannon so I made this quick crappy souped up beam cannon for the installation:

Here's my welcome beam... beware:



Should I make it not quite slow to wide up? Actually the beamz start quite abruptly, when the beam cannon has charged up enough... hm, I'lll check that one.

Here's the revamp:

Re: The Hard Light Productions Installation
Okay, I think i've managed to get an okay-looking air-duct system going, although to do so I had to futz with various things a teeny bit, but nothing major...



There'll have to be stairs on both sides of Level 2 due to a curving duct there, and new air-ducts and vents will have to be extended to certain sections when they themselves are added. And the fans... well... I did my best with those...

Now, if that's alright, someone else'll have to add in a Carl-Shivan lurking around in there, as I don't even want to attempt it with such accomplished MSPaint Artistes around here... *Looks at Carl*

Re: The Hard Light Productions Installation
Rearranged a couple of things around the elevator to accomodate the ducting properly, and one addition.  Added that hyperintelligent shade of blue...

who needs a signature? ;)

I was thinking exactly the same thing.
This is absolutely brilliant.

Pheww!

Shivan was quite hard to draw with MS Paint... but the result is finally quite close to model (yes, I had a model, this picture).

Though transparency and implementation is *not* made with paint. Its not good at them. Gimp rulez.

Here's our resident Shivan:



Here's our resident Shivan in the vents:



...perhaps someone could try and draw a Shivan from side? Now Carl looks like he's running diagonally in the vents.

Our resident shivan looks much better on this reddish bacground, hence a double message.

Re: The Hard Light Productions Installation
How much time did it take you guys to make this stuff?


Now just imagine if we could build an installation similair to this in real life.......
"The reason for this is that the original Fortran got so convoluted and extensive (10's of millions of lines of code) that no-one can actually figure out how it works, there's a massive project going on to decode the original Fortran and write a more modern system, but until then, the UK communication network is actually relying heavily on 35 year old Fortran that nobody understands." - Flipside
