Goofy looking Earth
Hey all I'm playing through Sol A History using Inferno R1. Check out the way Earth is looking...



Not very good right? I searched a bit before posting this since I'm sure there's just something I need to patch. Couldn't find it though. Could someone show me the way?

I don't know if http://www.hard-light.net/forums/index.php/topic,52159.0.html will fix it. But give it a try. It should have a new Earth bitmap, which will hopefully not have the transparency issue.
Unless you were using that already.

Hey thanks for linking me to that, didn't even know it existed. Not only is Earth fixed but a lot of other stuff looks pretty cool now :-).

That's one of the problems with using planet models rather than background bitmaps :doubt:

Unfortunately 3D planets work good only if you're very close to them.

Re: Goofy looking Earth
3D planets never work. Up-close they just become a pixellated excuse for a background.

Or you end up flying into the said pixellated thing.
Which is just as bad.

It was weird in the campaign, "Return to Sol," when a transport docked with a planet.

Let's just say that FS gameplay just can't accomplish some things realistically.  ;)

It was a moon, that was the first fan-made campaign I'd heard of

So long as it didn't spin it round and smack everyone with it... That could have been humorous...

I highly doubt I'd be able to get enough precision with hand tools and a drill press to be able to make a good quality lathe
in fact, often its more expensive to try to build one from raw materials.  Unless you have access to a high-grade junkyard where you can salvage parts from

the hardest part would be the "table" everything is on itself
because well, nothing can beat a ton and a half of strong steel shaped for the purpose

z64555
yes

Mito [PL]
Actually, seasoned ton and a half of strong steel shaped for the purpose

z64555
seasoned? what, you added spices to the metal?

The Colly's rotation time is extremely immense. Though I tried speeding the Colly up and making it manuverable, crushing wings of fighters and even damaging cruisers was quite fun :nod:.
With the rapid increase of FS fan-made campaigns, we're giving the GTVA a harder time with more violence and genocide.

I would think the Shivans would just turn and run if they see we're fast balling planets at them.  :eek2:
