Re: The New Earth Defense
Sadly, they just seem to highlight how very not GTVA the Ezek looks...
How so?

Well, as I tend to observe about a lot of new mods, they tend to lack the certain thematic links to existing ships that give them some kind of continuity with the rest of the FS universe. When you introduce a new faction, of course, you can do that kind of thing all you want. (You can even get away with it in a situation like Blue Planet, which introduced a new generation of similarly-textured ships, or with a particularly special design, such as the Pegasus and Ptah) However this Ezek has a sort of ULTRALIGHT GREY WITH RED STRIPES DARK GREY AND AQUA GLOWS thing going on, none of which exist on any canonical GTVA craft, and which don't appear to exist as common themes in the rest of the GTVA craft in this mod, and it is not apparently a particularly special design.

It also doesn't help the Ezek's design is far too aerodynamically sane for most Terran fighters.

Re: The New Earth Defense
Well the GTVA are pretty infamous for having some pretty oddball-like designs.

If you don't have Knossos, you need it.

Re: The New Earth Defense
Damn nice teasers! I am really looking forward for this mod! and woot! the Sathanas are back! cant wait to see em obliterate the **** up on the GTVA. XD

And i must also say nice planets and backgrounds. I am really looking forward for those. I am getting bored of the same planets and nebulae backgrounds all other mods are using.

Keep up the good work  :yes:

Re: The New Earth Defense
Sort of random, but what are your lighting settings? Those saths and that Iceni look a lot different from my ingame models. (Is that a "bloom"ish effect I see there?)

But holy, I can't believe I just discovered ED now...

 
Re: The New Earth Defense
These two are not in-game shots, so no lighting settings for you :P

Re: The New Earth Defense
Those are actual renders from cutscenes; they aren't ingame. They were created by our cutscene genius dude, Nighteyes

That said, you could probably make your game look like that with bloom shading...

I hate to say it, but it looked better without the HTL. That model just looks too regular and boxy to feel Shivan.

The idea is to make an arsenall more in the FS1 style.

Re: The New Earth Defense
I thought the Kahlan (well in Inferno terms anyway) was supposed to be some Shivan attempt at copying the Terrans or something... but that doesn't matter.

Just curious, is it using animated textures ala MediaVPs? o_O
Inferno plz

You're quite the critic aren't you? :P

Well, the point of it was to make it look like the FS1 ships, which were pretty boxy in the first place.

And remember, in Inferno (the origin of said bomber) it was said to have been based off of a Terran bomber.
