the backgrond is a bit fuzzy becas it is a relitively small image and I have it on a plain that is about 200 TS meters wide, the lak of an explosion is becas TS soports nether bitmap rendering or those cool particle efects in 3DsMax and Lightwave, so I have to cheat a little and use a plain to render bitmaps in empty space, I would make a little explosion effect but I try to use only things that can be used in animations so, hey does anyone have a little tool that can make an AVI out of a bunch of BMPs or PCXs, like AC only makeing an AVI not an ANI.

I love it   And Bobboau, how did you make the Moloch glow like that? (I know Setekhs given me his way of doing things but I havent had time to try it and wanted to see how you do it)

Great work!

GTC Amalthia- circa 2321
Designed originally to end the brief insurgentcy within the Beta Aquilae system only months before it's launch, the Amalthia was the begining of the Galatic Terran Alliance's fleet programs. The spaceyards required to build this vessel, have led to the ability for the alliance to construct vessels of similar magnitude for the upcoming strife with the Vasudan people. The Amalthia is designed for full coverage for it's advanced missile system, the firepower contained within it's frame is by far more than in any spacefaring vessel ever constructed[/B]

Sounds very similar. I'd love to see the ship. Is it a Freespace 1 vessel?
Be warned: This site's admins stole 100s of hours of my work. They will do it to you.

I use the layered reflectances thingy and I make a map for things like shine, and glow, and otherthings like reflectance, but those are the two most important. I also use bump maps, they add so much to the look of a ship.

if you want I'll give you the Moloch model I used.

Bobboau, I have seen your exceptional work and if I may be so bold would you mind sending me one of your own designs, I need an original model to get some idea of the workings.

Much obliged.

Maybe I mis-understood your request dude, but Bobboaus models can be found in our models section of HLP. Hope that helps (unless you meant something completely different)

I had a lot of good, simpler nebulas. They're mostly gone now, though... I still have some nice ones.

With the aid of Glitterato I can knock you up an unlimited supply, or you might want to download it yourself (it needs Photoshop though).  www.flamingpear.com  is the link if your interested, and email me if you want me to do you some nebulas  

Edit: Nice pic BTW, I like it

Thats another problem...

your striving for 100% functionality...  but a ship that has a 100 degree firing arc isn't balanced...

the whole point of all FS cap ships is to make them dangerous & effective while giving them an obvious weakness! (that weakness is the fun part of capship assaults)

examples?

Sathanas - Extremly Heavy weaponry concentration on the front, minimalistic on the back
Orion - Hard hitting against capships, but weak minimalist defence, especially on the underside!
Deimos - Again, low concentration of defensive weapons on the underside...

im not knocking you designs, if the thing was real, it would be taken up by military powers in an instant, but in its current *game* state, the ship sounds like its hard, if not impossible to destroy by fighters/bombers simply cos they are torn to pieces before they can get near!  
Sure capships can tear it a new one, but the player doesn't control them, meaning some of the 'spark' is lost...

anyway, keep up the good work
