Will there be nukes ingame?

Cause they do seem to play a very large part in the BSG universe

Cylons are abit nuke happy  :drevil:

Yep. Check out the image in This Post by LtCannonFodder - The big green bomb-like warhead seen 2nd from the right is a colonial nuke. Cylons, of course, will have their own.

Hi there, Tesla! I wondered when you'd get here! :)


Ah you know me,

I get here when I get here......

Quick Q, is there a shoutbox here??  ;7  :lol:  :drevil:

Hey kewltoyz your ship is looking a lot better since I last saw it, You're progressing well. Though I'm not sure if it's bsgish enough?

Also I'd hazard a guess the stealthstar may already have been modelled?

Thanks  ;) Was my first finished pof, took me a bit to figure out the work process using Rhino & 3D Explorer.
I wanted to do something with at least a little creative license to it and test out the tbl systems to have some fun.
I was trying to figure out how to make engines actually have an extended flame for afterburners and came up with my solution using the contrails in an odd fashion. Also I wanted to make an unlimmited ammo weapon without it being too formidable for single player mode to just have fun and explore possibilities with. Another item I was fiddling with was top speeds and afterburners for outrunning missiles.

On the StealthStar, I looked around but I haven't seen one yet.
I was doing it since I had not seen one and figured most would get a kick out of seeing it.

Kara, are you guys planning on actual planet bodies or just making the reference point of where one appears on the environment map act like a planetary body with regards of the gravity points?
The only reason I asked was the curiosity of modeling a planet or possibly a moon as depicted by the Cylon Tyllium refinery base.
Not sure just how badly it would affect performance for such a massive polygon.

The size of a polygon has little impact on performance. What causes problems is the number.

As for whether or not we do it. Not decided yet.

Distances on true planetary scale do make FS2_Open have problems, though. Things start flickering and stuff. At least, the last time I tried such things, that happened. This was with the re-newed Cardinal Spear stuff, though, so it might or might not apply to present builds... :nervous:
There are three things that last forever: Abort, Retry, Fail - and the greatest of these is Fail.

Planetary distances will cause all kinds of problems with graphics tears due to single precision floating point number limitations.  Beyond certain orbits even that will start to have problems.  There is a good dissertation by an Aussie, Chris Thorne, on exactly this problem and some solutions such as local rendering origins rather than a single global origin.  I don't have any idea how hard any of that would be to update in the FS_Open engine, but I'm pretty sure it wouldn't be trivial.

 
MOI precision may come into play as well.

Yep. I'm well aware of the float problem but for anything large but not huge it might be worth trying (Think Death Star rather than Earth).

Either way it's not exactly something urgent.

Uhm, I wonder if there's a way to represent the blood coming out from killed Cylon Raiders(if the explosion isn't too big)...

Baby red "asteroids" or particle effects would do. Probably needs to have pretty severe LOD cutoffs though and low priority on the todo list--cool but not necessary for a roaring good time.

In addition the particle's coords should perfectly math the Cylon brain's ones.
