Re: ANNOUNCEMENT - Olympus Burning
If you want the model, PM Trashman. You can ask about the nameplate too.

Re: ANNOUNCEMENT - Olympus Burning
Both the Orion mk2 and the upgunned Orion are in the Flames of War ship pack. both have nameplates and are the latest versions.

bot hare also on Freespacemods, but I don't think those are the latest versions

COTS1 is the file you want.

Re: ANNOUNCEMENT - Olympus Burning
I opened the RAR up, I'm assuming that Orion_FS2.pof is what I'm looking for?

Re: ANNOUNCEMENT - Olympus Burning
Great.  I'll be table-hacking if you need me.

EDIT: Where's the table files?  I'll probably be able to rig one myself, but it'd be nice to have.

It should be in the text file.

Re: ANNOUNCEMENT - Olympus Burning
Table files are in FOW_COTS_C.rar

It's a small file and you can also get it for the COTS release thread.

I've added custom ships before using TBMs, so that wasn't the issue--it's just that the RAR didn't contain said text file.

I just needed to know where the table templates are (because they must have been in a separate file) because writing the table for a ship I didn't even make is a pain in the rear.

Re: ANNOUNCEMENT - Olympus Burning
TrashMan, the Orion_FS2.pof file appears to be a bit broken.  It works just fine, but the nameplate texture (when given a custom texture) flickers a bit in FRED and possibly in FSO.


Can this be fixed?

Never trust FRED. Let me guess: it flickers when you move?

Re: ANNOUNCEMENT - Olympus Burning
Indeed. AND I tested it in FreeSpace.  Also a flicker.

Ideas?

Re: ANNOUNCEMENT - Olympus Burning
It shouldn't happen.

Tell me, the nameplate texture you are using - is just white text on pure black (transparent backgound)?
Cause if it's the regular orion nameplate thing (that has the blue panelling in the background nad not transparent) then that might happen.

Re: ANNOUNCEMENT - Olympus Burning
I GIMP'ed a nameplate up, and placed it all on one layer, with a transparent background.

Is that a bad thing?

Re: ANNOUNCEMENT - Olympus Burning
Shouldn't be.
I believe there are several nameplates among the textures together with the models in that .rar
You can use them as reference, but it's simple enough.

I did notice that nameplates sometimes act weird - and not just on my ships.

If it becomes a regular problem, I'll file a bug report on Mantis.

Re: ANNOUNCEMENT - Olympus Burning
I've seen it happening on any nameplate that is a transparent texture overtop of the original mapping.
It's a transparency thing.

Re: ANNOUNCEMENT - Olympus Burning
Then would changing said transparent background to a pure green (00FF00; 0,255,0) fix the problem?

Re: ANNOUNCEMENT - Olympus Burning
Uhm... I'm pretty sure it doesn't matter if it's a dds. transperent or green will work, but green gives you that stupid green outline over everything.  :ick:

Re: ANNOUNCEMENT - Olympus Burning
Hm.  Seems that regardless of what I use I get that strange flicker.

I never had this problem with the original Orion.  I wish I could actually open up the Orion's POF from the MediaVPs and add additional turrets, but I don't know if that's possible.
