Aren't you guys running through SVN now?  Or something similar?

Either way that I'm sure solved the problem.  Won't happen again.

i think that the only real Anti-fighter fire for the ISD should be sheer volume of turbolasers. that would be awsome.

Re: Imperial II-class Star Destroyer Reborn
We do have other engine limitations to stay under as well, the beefier a ship is, the fewer we can afford to use in a mission (perhaps not such a bad thing though).

As long as a proper Battle of Endor can be recreated, I don't think anyone's going to cry.

That's not likely given the object limit. But a smoke-and-mirrors approximation might be accomplished.

I image it's better that way anyhow. :) Easier for all concerned, especially the poor, poor Fredders who end up taking it on.

Re: Imperial II-class Star Destroyer Reborn
So how long before we can see the commander getting a throat choke from Vader in the window just before a fighter does a kamikaze into the bridge  :p
No-one ever listens to Zathras. Quite mad, they say. It is good that Zathras does not mind. He's even grown to like it. Oh yes. -Zathras

Unlikely you'd see that, Vader has 'Villian Shield' until the Battle of Endor.  Kinda like your Hero Shield.

Re: Imperial II-class Star Destroyer Reborn
the bridge looks extremely detailed...have you thought about using normal maps for that detail...because I'm wondering about performance... or dynamic LODs.

Re: Imperial II-class Star Destroyer Reborn
Detail boxes my friend.  Also it's not really that bad, only 4012 tris.  The ISD right now is sitting at 28,878 triangles in total with all the detail.  Considering what many other mods are cooking up, especially the BSG ones, that's pretty damn good.

"Oh, but there's only one battlestar, and you'll have to have hundreds of ISDs"

Well, given the engine limitations on number of objects, subobjects, weapons, etc, let's just all stop kidding ourselves.  There will be no battles with hundreds of ISDs.   The only way we could accomplish that would be by giving each ISD only a couple guns, tile mapping the whole thing with some very low res textures and stripping off nearly all the detail.  I think I speak for most of the team and most of our fans when I say that I'd rather see these ships done right.  Quality over quantity.

Re: Imperial II-class Star Destroyer Reborn
So, brandx0, do the greebles on that bridge sit on the surface, or are they extrusions?

What? That's a 3D model. There's no texturing on it.
