The Quest for Lost Data
Hey all!  :p

Well, it's been 10 years since FreeSpace first came out, and many of us have remained proud players for all those years (myself included).  HLP is pretty much the only remaining lighthouse left for this game's solid community, thanks to Setekh and Kalfireth.  I found the HLPBB movie script hilarious, loved campaigns like Blue Planet and Transcend (@ Ransom Arceihn – I absolutely adore your vox acting in Derelict and I hope your real-life experiences with duct tape have been much more optimistic  :lol:), and when I'm finally old enough to buy stuff online for myself, I'm totally shopping at the HLP Store (yay Galemp).   

BUT right now I'm working on some FS2 fanfiction, perhaps to become a webcomic if I can polish my art skills well enough or collaborate with someone, but I'm lacking important base resources simply because they aren't there anymore! Does anyone know what happened to...

The FreeSpace 2 Official Website - I find it very puzzling how this site went offline, and more so, offline before the Descent: FreeSpace site.  It had downloads for music, wallpaper, screenshots and concept art, and other interesting goodies.

http://www.descent-freespace.com - This website was amazing, with a very simple layout, but was loaded with artwork for all three species, the giant wallpapers, and some other stuff I can't remember because it's been unaccessible for so long.  Thanks to the different Vasudan shots, I learned to draw that species.  Now I want to draw Shivans but the pictures are just...gone... So if this site doesn't come back, does anyone know where I can get these old documents?

Anyway, I get upset sometimes at these missing resources because it just shows how on the Internet, you can't take things for granted.  :sigh:

Thanks.  :D

Sweet. Another Canadian!

How come :v: didn't use those models in their cutscenes? The Shivans in Hallfight look decidedly low-poly.
Gettin' back to dodgin' lasers.

Hey, I have them too.  Can I get a hug? :)

 
Re: The Quest for Lost Data
If you have any files that Snail hasn't posted, I'd really appreciate them.  Either way, you get a hug too.  *gives Goober a long and warm hug*  ;)

@ Cole: Canada, eh?  I've been around here longer than you, young 'un.  In fact, I was your age when I joined the forum. :p  I agree with you though, the Shivans in the cutscene are not extremely glamourous in detail.

I see an VF-1 Valkyrie. I don't suppose a Macross/Robotech mod has been released?

The FS sites are backed up somewhere aren't they?

Some stuff can be found on the Internet Archive, and some stuff can be found on the computers of those who had the foresight to download it.  But there's no formal comprehensive backup as far as I know.

I believe the FreeSpace2 site is archived, but I'll comb it for data, thank you very much!

...You guys. :p  Sorry, but the friendship between Cobra and I became...more than friends over three years ago.  Me, I just hug people.  Still love you Goob!  ;)

Re: The Quest for Lost Data
I have several more of these renders below, especially the ones from the dropped cutscenes. Someone asked me for these quite a while ago (possibly Goober, can't remember) but I don't think I ever got around to uploading them earlier.
