OK, thanks Herra. I'm glad you have that attention to detail. :)

I tend not to use Height maps, except as bumpmaps to generate normal maps. I made them so I figured there's nothing wrong with throwing them into the mix for whoever wants to turn them on. And as far as the env mapping goes, I've never tried the 'use alpha for spec' feature. I have to try it for testing, from now on.

nice...  but what about the 4 other pylons? shouldn't they also have docking points?

jup the orginal had 6 docking points...

BTW is this just me or why has the HTL karnak no fighter bays (to launch wings and stuff) in FRED?

The Karnak is... well, not as good as I would like right now, but I'm too frustrated. I'm not converting anything more complex than a missile until we get Collada to POF support implemented.

Can't you make a multiplayer mission using this new Karnak?
What's up?

Sure you can. Why don't you?

Can't you just add them in PCS2? It only takes a few minutes.

'cause I don't have PCS2? 'cause I have no time?

Well, I find the best way to learn FS modding is just by trial and error.  If you don't give up, you'd be surprised what you can achieve.  I can't run FRED, but that hasn't stopped me from trying to FRED (TextEdit FTW! :D)

I agree with blowfish. FREDding may not sound easy, and it isn't, but when you give it a try, you may find that you like doing it. I tried it, and I was interested enough to FRED two mostly-complete missions. I pale in comparison to modders like Woomeister, Goober5000 and GalacticEmperor; they've done A LOT for the SCP project, doing things like making mods such as Inferno Release 1, the FreeSpace Port, and re-touching the PVI Karnak. ;)

Nobody's allowed out over here anyway.   I nominate E (as a fair and just overlord) to arrange a Zoom HLP Social.

Galemp has done a lot more than just retouching the Karnak...

And while Woo has done a lot, there are a lot of other teams that've done a lot more.

You have to give Woo a lot of credit for converting quite a few mods in the early days. He's not as active now as he was then but he used to make new models and convert them. Like quite a few of the original INFR1 things were his.

 
Looks great  ;7

I do have a question: Is the Karnak considered cannon?  I never recall seeing it in the tech room until I downloaded FS1 conversion.  Regardless, a great addition  :D

Completely non-canon.
But one of the first models put out I think, or at least it dates back from way back when so people tend to have a bit higher regard for it. That and the fact that few people bother making Vasudan ships, let alone Vasudan spacestations. (only 2 in existence that I'm aware of, and one of them ain't that pretty imo).

The Karnak is the prettier of the two. The GVI Cairo is...let me say...ugly.
But really, the Karnak should have beam cannons or something :P (in FS2 Era) What else is it using that massive reactor for?

Perhaps lighting and blobs....Yeah...what if two Karnaks were made, FS and FS2 era types...with the upgraded Karnak possessing beam cannons and flak.  :D
