Why are the graphics in the inferno mod so much smoother and more highly detailed than in the regular game and other mods for it that I've played?
The Babylon Project was our last, best hope for peace.  It failed...

No no!  I love the mod!  That's just what Commander Ivanova says at the beginning of B5 season 3.

Uh, wat. The last time I played, Inferno was already somewhat outdated. The graphics were... well, graphics, but nothing groundbreaking.

Do you have the MediaVPs installed? They would boost the visual pleasure of the game quite a bit.

the models just have textures and nothing else, isn't that it?

Inferno with better graphics than FSO? :wtf:
Fun while it lasted.

Then bitter.

Yeah, kind of.  Normally, when I run FS2 with FSO and the media VPs, the game still lags on high detail.  With Inferno, it doesn't.  I'm just wondering why that is.

Your computer isn't good enough, because FSO with MediaVPs is much more demanding?

Because Inferno has outdated material.

The models used in Inferno (at that time) haven't come 'round to be HTL'ed?

Mind you, it would be terrible if the juggernauts like a SH Gargant for example got HTL'ed . . .  ;)

Not really, detail boxing, optimization, and separate models for when you're doing a trench-run style mission (i.e only a small, detailed model.

Aren't detail box'ed areas still loaded in memory, just not drawn like LODs?
It doesn't save that much if you have a whole lot of them everywhere. At least, I recall reading that somewhere.

Yeah.  Though the idea is that they don't use render time when they are not necessary.

Inferno runs smoothly because it was made in the year 2000. To remake all the ships such that they use all the features of SCP would take forever. That's why the patch only makes it SCP-compatible but does little else.

Well it was released in 2003. According to the website.

Yeah, released. I guess that the models were made, you know, before the release. :P
Also...where do the first two screenshots on the R1 Info page come from? I don't recall there being an "Escort Independance" mission with a Boreas present. Nor do I recall the Nemesis ever going against the Shivans.
