No, that VP recolours all, and even more than in FS2 actually. Would make capital ship map recolours so much easier.

And you can use Flaming_Sword's Shivan recolour packs, all in easy-to-use VP files. Come in colours of green, blue, white, purple, yellow and pink! Get it now, with a 75% discount! Just go to www.freespacemods.net and download it!

Yeah, but then we'd have to redo the glowmaps themselves. Easier off just recoloring the existing ones.

Re: RELEASE: Teeth of the Tiger, Intro
Huh? The packs are only glowmaps.

 
Re: RELEASE: Teeth of the Tiger, Intro
As a textureur, I'd rather do my own to get an effect I'm looking for. This is not to put down others who have, but just part of my creativity and satisfaction.  :)
Got Shivans? The SOC Ezechiel is the schnitzel! Don't leave base without it.

Re: RELEASE: Teeth of the Tiger, Intro
Unless the maps are tiles, then no. Oh well, can't blame for suggesting :p

 
Re: RELEASE: Teeth of the Tiger, Intro
Well the thing is that the original FS and FS 2 units are going to stay original, so the glowmaps pack won't help us out too much.

And since people still want green, let's just go with green.
'Teeth of the Tiger' - campaign in the making
Story, Ships, Weapons, Project Leader.

 
Re: RELEASE: Teeth of the Tiger, Intro
OK Green it is. I already did some of them this color, but can't do anything until after this weekend. Go to the Super Secret area for why.

Re: RELEASE: Teeth of the Tiger, Intro
This is mission 3.

And this is my problem:



I'm guessing that's supposed to be a planet.

Re: RELEASE: Teeth of the Tiger, Intro
It's the grand white cube planet.
Didn't you hear about it in the briefing?

Re: RELEASE: Teeth of the Tiger, Intro
I just played the mission with it anyway . . .though I haven't gotten past it. Apparently I'm not supposed to attack the XXXXXXX because XXXXXX just blows me apart when I do.

 
Re: RELEASE: Teeth of the Tiger, Intro
Damn, I forgot they'd managed to release this.
Sig nuked! New one coming soon!

  
Re: RELEASE: Teeth of the Tiger, Intro
Btw Droid and anyone else confused, the Mephisto IS purple. (and the Asmodeus is green)
That being said, none of the warships are purple so I'd probably not use it.


As for the campaign:

Spoiler:
My biggest beef is that it didn't feel like my presence was necessary.
In mission #1 the player doesn't do anything except fly around.
In mission #2 the player basically does nothing as well. The GTVA has what, 2 destroyers, a base and at least one Aeolus there and the Shivans only send a couple fighters and bombers at a time. The player gets orders to "take out the shivan beams" but both the Demon and the Ravana get murdered in short order so they don't even get the chance to use them. Then when the Kismat arrives the player can't hurt that thing either so the allies get their butts kicked and everyone leaves.
In mission #3 the Shivans again only send a few fighters, while the convoy has plenty of guns to take care of 'em. Then when the Lamia arrives, it's basically unstoppable except versus TM guys. I even tried taking out its weapon system and instead the Lamia targetted me and blasted me out of the water. So I defend for 20 minutes against some shivan fighters, but it's not really useful because the super shivan cruiser is going to waste half the convoy regardless of what I do and even if I wasn't there the multiple AAAfs, 30+ terran turrets and allied fighters could probably handle the few shivan fighters and bombers that do engage.

Basically what I'm saying is that I have something to do in each mission, but if I wasn't there I don't think the mission would turn out any different so my presence doesn't feel necessary on any level.


Hmmn . . . some of the dialogue was a bit odd, though understandable given I've written some goofy dialogue myself.

Also is the Lamia's main gun supposed to be able to target fighters because it blew me to pieces when I tried to "make a difference."

Re: RELEASE: Teeth of the Tiger, Intro
No not really, it's grey with a very light purple tinge, not bright glowing purple. The Lucifer's glows are Red (Rainbow is also acceptable).

I meant the stock lucifer. I didn't think it had any glows.

Re: RELEASE: Teeth of the Tiger, Intro
Yeah, the stock Lucifer had bright red, and very faded purple for the more metallic parts.
The cutscene one was rainbow.
