Re: kevin caccamo's landreich campaign?
Did you ever put a bubble canopy on the Hornet? After looking through the game sprites, I think it's supposed to have a bubble canopy...  :nervous:

Re: kevin caccamo's landreich campaign?
In some angles the sprites might suggest a bubble in outhers there are some lines that are not bubble like. Even some hard edges.
As the manual, ingame cutscenes and cockpitgraphics are showing its not a bubble I think you can pretty much say its not a bubble.

Re: kevin caccamo's landreich campaign?
The cube-class was just a result of Karajorma's turreting tutorial.  It's an underpowered ship; I wanted to replace the :v: bravos (when you type in arrrrwalktheplank) with the cube-class and teach cheaters that cheating doesn't work! :lol:

Re: kevin caccamo's landreich campaign?
Here's a screenshot I took for Mantis 2135:



I've added and tweaked lots of stuff, including:
- Muzzle flashes
- Some new ships and re-skins
- New fonts based on Dejavu Sans
- IFF Colours
- Species names
- Ship class names
- New crosshair added with custom hud_gauges.tbl

Belated credit goes to Travis Baldree for the Hornet model...

...Yes, I'm still working on it.  Slowly but surely...

EDIT: I'd like to get some more people on my "team" to help me polish the mod and to help me avoid WC continuity inconsistencies.

The next updates will give away some of the plot, possibly followed by an interview with the HLP interview crew.

As an appetizer of what is coming next, the player's callsign is going to be Rider.

The idea with the pre-WC3 croshair is cool.

Moar Lighting Settings!
Here are the lighting settings I use with WCSaga and Hostile Frontier:
Code: [Select]
-fov 0.65 -ogl_spec 80 -spec_tube 8.0 -spec_point 9.0 -spec_static 1.4 -ambient_factor 130I'm trying to make the lighting similar to the pre-rendered lighting in WC3, and make it shiny in the process.

Here are the lighting settings I use with FreeSpace:
Code: [Select]
-ambient_factor 80 -ogl_spec 40 -spec_exp 15 -spec_point 5.0 -spec_static 2.7 -spec_tube 4.0These are shiny, high-contrast settings.

Re: kevin caccamo's landreich campaign?
I thought this screenshot was too good to keep hidden, so here you go:

Hostile Frontier will (hopefully) have cockpits.  Thanks to the Standoff team for the cockpit models.

Re: kevin caccamo's landreich campaign?
Very cool.
btw what happened to the textures? The Hornet cockpit from Standoff is fully textured (it even includes the displays from WC1):
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ooIJedGbSsE
Hmmm....... are you trying to make the displays actually work like in WC1?

Re: kevin caccamo's landreich campaign?
I have to replace the textures because I can't have my mod looking exactly like Standoff.  I just used black in place of the gauges because I'm not a very good artist, and some of the default HUD gauges fit into the black areas on the cockpit.  I can't have cockpit displays that work like the cockpits in the original games because it would require a lot of work, both on the code, and on the assets.  I would need features like Render-to-texture support and ignoring palettes on HUD gauges first before I could go about doing something like that.

Re: kevin caccamo's landreich campaign?
This is looking very cool. But I've got a suggestion and a question. if it were me I'd make the cockpit more of a greenish-gray to "real it up" a little. (even in the original the hornet cockpit wasn't as vibrant of a green as that) and i was wondering if you were going to leave to hud the way it is or try to line the gauges up with the screens in the cockpit? either way keep up the good work this campaign is looking awesome.

Re: kevin caccamo's landreich campaign?
Hehe, I know the feeling, Dekker.  When I first added cockpits to WCHF I was also very impressed with the results.  I will continue to add cockpits to WCHF.

If you haven't seen the Celebration of FreeSpace thread, I posted these pictures in that thread:



These will be posted in a new dev diary update very soon.
