Re: Cutscene Upgrade Project
The easy handwavey answer is that the strike team already knew that the freighter would be pressurized before entering it.

^ This ^

Also the Taranis is captured (and lost) before this scene plays, so we can assume there are some good scans and mass measurements of other shivan ships, while this is the first time anyone gets inside of a shivan ship, it is not unreasonable for them to be aware if the interior is pressurized or not.

Re: Cutscene Upgrade Project
After some investigation, it looks like FSPort doesn't even ship with the V Prime cutscene anymore, so I put it on the backburner as it would be purely fan work.

I do not think it ever shipped with IceyJones' cutscene.

It did. The cutscene happens at the same time as Ancients 4 and Galemp had me bolt mine and Icy's together into a single scene.

Re: Cutscene Upgrade Project
I have no idea what Mjn just posted, nor any idea of the context. It looks very vaguely like a Vasudan at a very shadowed viewport wearing a black cloak, but as I can only see maybe a third of the head (at least, I'm assuming that's a head!), it's very tough to tell what I'm even looking at. :p

Not very subtle, but, yes, a very effective hint. :D

But yeah, this should teach you to brighten your cutscenes so we can acutally see what we're looking at. :p

Weird, considering they had completely opposite motives when it came to demonic entities....

Gandalf: YOU SHALL NOT PASS!

Bosch: I'VE BEEN WAITING THIRTY-TWO YEARS FOR YOU GUYS TO PASS (THROUGH THE KNOSSOS). WHAT TOOK YOU GUYS SO LONG???

If you didn't know what that scene was from a glance and actually thought it was Vasudan, then you aren't an actual Freespace fan. Come back when you learn more about FS2 and can offer something productive.

Jesus friggin Christ, mjn. Take a look at that darkened picture again. Bosch is almost in COMPLETE shadow and only a third of his head is visible and even that is just a silhouette. I’ve watched the Bosch monologues dozens of times and even I had trouble recognizing Bosch. Don’t go all “more Freespace than thou” just because you made Bosch so unrecognizable by placing him in almost complete darkness. Your cutscenes are awesome but they are not by any means flawless. If I had trouble recognizing Bosch, then others will as well. Perhaps my dry, caustic wit (such as it is) offended you, but I’m trying to help.

Re: Cutscene Upgrade Project
It's taken me a few days to come around, but I apologize to everyone for my tantrum (which occurred on Discord). The truth is that an individual who I used to highly respect and collaborate with on a regular basis dumped all over my work and my abilities as an artist. He suggested my latest work is actively worse than the original and that I'm so bad at what I do, I can't see how terrible it is. The unfortunate part is that his actual ideas on improving my work have merit, but he went about it in entirely the wrong way. Words matter. After explaining my position privately he still didn't seem to care how his words affected me. It's evident that I thought too highly of this person and that I don't need his approval when I have all of yours. I received more than a dozen private messages from people offering me their support. Thank you for that. This project has been a labor of love for a decade and the payoff is having my work enjoyed by others, so I'll focus on that. I'll return with completed Hall Fight soon.

Just saw this, :wtf:   Don't let the assholes get to you, they'll always be found wherever you are unfortunately.  Sorry you had to go through that.

Quick question,  as always,  about uv maps.....     Do they not drive you as crazy as the drive me?   Could never get a grip on them and it's probably abkt the sole reason I didn't invest more time modelling in my youth / school days.

Lithinwrap and truespace 3.1 was all I had mind you 😂

Re: Cutscene Upgrade Project
Because all these models aren't going anywhere outside of 3ds Max, I can cheat. A lot.

Wall? Auto UV Map Box Modifier + Builtin metal texture.

Mug on Bosch's desk? Auto UV Cylinder + Builtin texture.

The only things I really need to UV are things like Computer screens, buttons, logos, etc. And for those it's really just to fit a very basic square image so a flatten UV  command usually does the trick. Of course, that means none of this works if you view it from angles other than intended. But that doesn't matter here.
