Maybe it adds the vectors to calculate the maximum speed in any direction?
That was it.  It used to do that.  I fixed it last month. :)

On the general speed / momentum subject, may I recommend the $use_newtonian_dampening setting :D  This way there's more momentum, less fishtailing.
$use_additive_weapon_velocity is pretty interesting too, but a little harder to get used to.  Fixed the lead indicator to work better with it last month, too.

    Er, why not PM the guy instead if you're looking for the download?

        Admirable, but . . .  so, instead of asking the guy for his files, you're going to bump two threads, hope he notices that you did, and furthermore hope that he's using his psychic powers to read your mind and figure out that by bumping the threads, you're really asking for the files again?

        Why not:
        1 - Ask him directly for a link to files and/or to post a link in the forum for everyone
        2 - or if he just gives you the link, post the link yourself and says "yay, everyone enjoy".

Hey is there a way I can have the glide feature in the game without the velocity mod? Sure, the higher velocities are probably more realistic, but it makes trying to shoot the enemy a very drawn out affair.

Its only one file, so will I have to change something in the code (hope I can use notepad or something)?

No coding needed, just DL a VP editor, extract the ship.tbl, open it in a text editor ( notepad ), and add this line:

$Glide: YES

check the wiki, where exactly to set the entry:

http://www.hard-light.net/wiki/index.php/Ships.tbl#.24Glide:


then save ( not save as !!) and place it in the tablefolder of a new modfolder, something like MYMOD/ data/ tables.

Or you can check the Blue Planet board in the Blackmarket childboard and DL the package there, but make sure to read the instructions or info.

Savefile is down.

Any possibility of an fsmods link, or...?
Who uses forum signatures anymore?

Does anyone still have these mod files? Would be grateful if someone can share these :)

-Joshua- is still around, you might want to send a PM with a link to this thread.

Thanks for showing interest in this, it's fun to see that people are still interested in things that I made 10 years ago.
When I was 15 years old even xD

Can Knossos support this?

You can upload every (useful) mod there you want, I'm just unsure whether this one, which doesn't have any missions as far as I can see this falls into the same category. Unlike assets or campaigns, this kind of work is often forgotten...

This looks like a case for the not-yet-implemented "extension" mod type.  An extension is something like this or the cockpit mod that isn't really a mod in itself but can be added on to other ones.

The main reason why such mods are often forgotten is, that they change the balancing of the game completely.

Actually such mods need missions and campaigns that are adapted to the new physics of the game. This mod in an unchanged FS2 campaign would cause many problems...

Is one of my releases broken or not working? Please send a PM here or on Twitter, a public tweet @NovachenFS2 or write a reply in my own release threads here on HLP, because these are the only threads i am still participating in.

Knossos keeps getting updated with neat things. :) But without adjusted content it's rather short time entertainment. Even Fury AI isn't fun without balancing.
