Oh man. I just tried out something on the model?

It's even BETTER.

But I won't tell you. Not till it's redone. :D

Spoiler:
Thank Bobboau.

Herra, I think there's something wrong with your video drivers or something. There's some bizarre stuff happening with the textures; the glowmaps don't overlap the pipes like that.

Well I did have an interesting episode with Medieval 2 Total War before taking these shots... perhaps re-installation of video drivers would be beneficial. I'll let you know if it has a positive effect. :)


EDIT: Well, re-installing the GPU drivers fixed the slowdowns (whaddayaknow) but actually it seems like it's the height map causing that overlapping (among other stuff).

That's not a moon...



Lock S-Foils on attack position.



Stay on target...



Nice view those Zods are having here... :nervous:





EDIT: nevermind the shiny moon, it's a normal map experiment (I just fixed it with a black shinemap after taking these screenies).

By the way. I'm experiencing a really strange, huge slowdown (down to about 5-10 FPS) as soon as the "destroy blast door" phase of the mission begins. It isn't there with the old Karnak, so I'm guessing it has something to do with the new model.

:jaw:

Wow! A Karnak! How many polygons are there on it?

do you intend to keep the red color in the reactor chamber? this makes it look like you were more in a gargant than in a vasudan vessel. :lol:

:wtf:

To use this with fsport, just put the model in freespace/fsport/data/models/ and the textures in freespace/fsport/data/maps/

It's a reactor room. You think it would be all shiny and happy?

I don't know, perhaps a bright green halo. (i may be wrong, of course).

Suggestion: what about some nice Karnak extensions? You're surely able to create them. It would be nice to see this improved installation with extensions docked with it. :)

Believe it or not, it's already on my agenda. I plan to have a new Shah drydock extension that plugs into the trapezoidal docking bay socket. :)

One with dockpoints to connect them? I love the Shah/polaris pylons but they're a pain in the arse to put together.

Well, IMO, I'd say that the Vasudan mechanics are more or less the same as Terran technology, they just used a different material to cover it. I mean loads of Vasudan ships in FS1 and FS2 all have pipes and stuff in it. It's not like it's too different like Shivan technology or anything.

Nice, I honestly didn't think that ten years later people would be updating this. I do need to release some planet backgrounds to replace the old ones it seems though.

Hello, what's this?



Looks like a further enhanced Karnak mesh, with a Hammer of Light reskin.

 ;7

I'm looking at putting the finishing touches on this tomorrow, so if anyone has any input, speak now!

Looks nice, though I'm not sure about the hieroglyphics ... the yellow looks a bit odd, but if that's just an optional reskin than I'm OK.

Oh, and an upturreted version would be nice, but if that's too much work, no worries :)

I liked the blue and un-hieroglyphed skin better, tbh.
I would've gone orange and green like TrashMan's for the HOL skins  :P

Still, it looks like much win.

OMG the hieroglyphics are fantastic! IMO the regular Vasudan version should use them as well...
