Re: Want to Join Fate of the Galaxy? Staff Positions Open!
Do you still have models which are not converted? Or you expect a lot to come? I mean: is that RED text still valid?

We do, and hopefully when Brand is ready to convert some of his fighters you'll be able to help/show him the ropes.  I might have asked earlier but I knew you were busy with another project :)

Yeah, I'm very interested in learning to convert myself, but just haven't had the time (As I've said many times before: I just make things pretty, I don't make them work)

Is the process of porting models to the game well documented? If it is, where can I find the proper documentation?

Re: Want to Join Fate of the Galaxy? Staff Positions Open!
Well, I wouldn't say it's well documented.  No one who has managed to get really good at it has had the time to document it, they're too busy converting models for everyone as soon as their talent goes public.  Also, the process varies depending on the format the model is in (Max, Blender, Wings, etc).  Collada support for PCS2 is supposed to help alleviate this somewhat, but the process will still be different based on the app you're starting from, it seems.  As the Collada support is new territory, there's not a lot of documentation yet, save for the Blender guide in the wiki.  That's either for PCS2 or the python exporter, not sure.

To be honest, I'd love to be able to volunteer to help with the music, but right now, I'm too busy with Uni work to even keep up with my current responsibilities. If there's still a spot open later, however, I might try and get some demos together, but not for at least a month or two.

 
Re: Want to Join Fate of the Galaxy? Staff Positions Open!
Hey guys! I'm a huge fan of both SW an FS so I'm looking forward to this mod very much and I'd like to help as well.
I didn't see these "positions" on the list and I'm well aware that in this stage of development my "skills" are not needed but if in the future u need voice acting/recording I'd be glad to help. Basically I'd like to help with polishing the game. Like tech lab descriptions and things like that. And when I said I'm a fan of SW I meant that I know the universe inside-out, so I could also help with keeping it at least half-canon, and making it more starwarsistic...
Anyway, good luck with the mod and if any of my ideas caught ur eyes just contact me!
May the Force be with you!

Re: Want to Join Fate of the Galaxy? Staff Positions Open!
So let me get this straight, you created an account just to tell us how much you love/know about Star Wars, but you picked a Babylon username?  :P

For VA, we won't have a need any time too soon.  We're still in the early stages of campaign development and that's probably one of the later things we'd need.  We also have a pretty good ability to cover the tech descriptions at this point, to help out in that department your best bet would be to hang out in our IRC channel for a while and show off your stuff when the opportunity arises.

Is the first post still up-to-date? I think our website is all right, our Wiki article is there, and zookeeper has fulfilled his model converter position very well.

Ahh, much better    :)

This is the most important mod-project i.m.o. and waiting is really hard for me...

Thank you!  We really appreciate your enthusiasm towards our work =)

I've made a couple changes.  I've left the converter position on there, as I'm sure zoo could use some help.  I think our website just needs a bit more snazz, and while chief has come up with a great way to update the news, we're really having a difficult time keeping it up to date, as well as my having slacked off on the newsgrid.  Having a dedicated webmaster could take this off of chief's plate, or assist him with its upkeep.

Re: Want to Join Fate of the Galaxy? Staff Positions Open!
I'd be more interested in a full on restyling of the site too, I mean it works but we could always use something with a little more polish.  Not something I've had time to sit down and do since it's currently working as is.

Re: Want to Join Fate of the Galaxy? Staff Positions Open!
Hmm....I wonder if I can get .POF and .MGN files to work in Blender...........

I am definitely experienced with the .DDS format, with my time doing ILM Experience.  Having a Bamboo helps a great deal, too!

How freeform can the Interface be? Like, must it be restricted to a left nav, etc?

 
Re: Want to Join Fate of the Galaxy? Staff Positions Open!
I can do audio realted stuff - mastering sounds making them broad etc.. or trying to conserve that special charme of the original moviel still being kind of high fidelity..

just need good samples..

can do mastering of other files (to give them equal Volume levels etc)

I don't think we need much help with mastering only (but I might be wrong; swash will correct if necessary), but we would certainly welcome help in producing new sfx to expand our current set and replace some of the worse ones, if you think you're up for that. Especially a lot of our weapon fx are somewhat unimpressive.
