EDIT- You might think 'OH NO, HE'S AT IT AGAIN!', but yes, I'm working on a patch. Look at this post- http://www.hard-light.net/forums/index.php/topic,52159.msg1109408.html#msg1109408
-to see what'll be included.
This upgrade is now released. Scroll down for the download link. Please comment on it and everything. I want feedback. ---Why did I do this upgrade?
Many reasons. Main one- I want to experiment a little before I continue on my own mod. Second- I think Sol: A History was a very good campaign- second in position after Blue Planet, in my opinion, but it had bad looking bakgrounds. I think it deserves more, even though it was created when there weren't all those SCP graphical features.---Original Progress:
- got a new Saturn. Didn't get a background image of Pluto though, so decided to leave it as it is. If you have a good image of Pluto, please share with me.HUD
- got permission from one mod to use it. Already in-game.Command head ani's
- got permission from one mod to use them. Already in.New main-hall
- new main-hall in-game. Decided to keep the Mediavp pre-load screen.New explosions and shockwave
- in-gameEdited/upgraded final mission
- DoneHTL JCD Majesty
- as requested, done and in-game. However I left the original Orion's shinemaps. Look on page 5 for a screenshot. Unfortunately, I think I "broke" the mipmaps... So if anyone has a problem with it, I'll have to remake it.New Weapon effects
- got from Earth Defense demo, thanks to Shiv. I think I finished replacing the missiles. Avenger and Prometheus replaced.Replace Earth model with a background image
- this will take a long time...Fix Mercury placement
- Done.Return background divides
- doneAdd an asteroid field skybox to missions in the asteroid field
- The bitmap and skybox are mixed in some missions. Others have only the bitmap.New Thruster effects
- from Earth Defense. White ones to suit the EA.MediaVp subspace effects
- forgot to mention these. Overwrite Inferno's ugly old subspace effect.Write a readme with credits
- necessary if I want to release it.Archive
- not a VP cause, well, easier to patch errors, and I couldn't handle any VP makers. Done though.Find a good hosting site
- freespacemods.net---Things I would like to do/upgrade but probably won't:
Improve EA ship textures,
Normal maps, shinemaps for EA ships,
Better looking Valkyrie and HTL support ship ( this one is possible, but would be a seperate download )
New Pluto ( wait for 2015 ),
Voice acting ( impossible, and even more impossible for me alone to do it ).
Why I wrote this list? No idea. Maybe I'd get help on this one and then could make it?---Questions/Suggestions?
What else you'd like to be upgraded/improved in Sol: A History? What do you want to know more about it?---My questions:
I might start making a patch, but have no idea what else needs to be done. If you want something else, I might put it in via patch. But no promises. Now I just wanna relax and start making a Shivan campaign.------------------------------
