I've done it. It's not the trees, it's that damned GROUND!

Only when bongaleroed, my newbie friend. This ain't I-War. Which had sucky planets, too. There was, at some point, an atmospheric mod, but it was either of inferior quality or was never completed, because I haven't really heard of it in a while...

I dont think it was ever completed IIRC.

only in the Babylon 5 mod can you physically crash into a planet, even then, there are no trees and the planet looks blurred even when you're 50,000 meters away.

SCREW CANON!

 
i'll make sure that detail down a all the hot dog stands are included in the next relase of our planet, im sure itll run at 30fps or more

For some computers, it would be lucky if it can run at all.


Good work by the way.
I finally destoryed the Shivan armada and all I got was this lousy T shirt.

 
BIG problem with all planet battles, or even ones close to a space station or large ship- the AI is moronic and will attempt to fly through whatever the large object is. Kinda ruins the effect.

Can you destroy the planet?

That would be something to see.

*Shivan Death Star approaches Capella*
Alpha 2: Get me outta here Command!
*Trench run scene from Star Wars ANH plays and game ends with Millenium Falcon pumping proton torpedoes into the Sathanas in order to save the Colossus and Capella*
hehehe...could somebody make a MOD of the Death Star and then reskin it to make it look Shivan? That might make for an interesting mission or campaign...not saying that I could make but still
Wash: This landing's gonna get pretty interesting.
Mal: Define "interesting".
Wash: *shrug* "Oh God, oh God, we're all gonna die"?
Mal: This is the captain. We have a little problem with our entry sequence, so we may experience some slight turbulence and then... explode.

Its kinda hard to convey sarcasm, or any other sort of emotion for that matter, with just text....
Thats what the smileys are for.
Oh wait.. he used one...

 
I've thought of doing a Shivan death star before... I just lack modeling equipment (The Actaeon was done with some that I had availible for an extremely temporary period of time.) It would be roughly spherical, about 100km or so across, have huge engines in the back, and be very spiky.  

Also, I thought it would be cool if it traveled WITHOUT the aid of subspace, at least intrasystem... it just accelerated up to massive speeds. Imagine a mission where you watch a 100km-wide spheroid go flying past at half the speed of light.

Of course you would. Just not for very long. And then the gamma radiation backwash would kill you.

What would you need a ship for then?  Just make a bunch of 1 km long engines that ram planets.  I guarantee it won't take many to cause catastrophic damage to anything on the surface.
WE ARE HARD LIGHT PRODUCTIONS. YOU WILL LOWER YOUR FIREWALLS AND SURRENDER YOUR KEYBOARDS. WE WILL ADD YOUR INTELLECTUAL AND VERNACULAR DISTINCTIVENESS TO OUR OWN. YOUR FORUMS WILL ADAPT TO SERVICE US. RESISTANCE IS FUTILE.

Well, if we had more Newtonian physics, then stopping them would make for one heck of an intercept mission!
