new ships=kewl beans
hey woo, nice ships. im about to start experimenting with them. hopefully i can fit some into my campaign. i currently have 44 new ships and i dont know where else i can fit any more. but i will start looking around....i know i am overloading you already with this....because i did it a lot before (because i like the ancients), but are ya gonna release anything new ancients-wise...you said a beta pack was coming out with the old ancients models that you were gonna redo, but i dont seem to see them anywhere. dont mind me though. doesnt matter with this many new ships to play around with. have fun! THANKX!:nod: :nod:

Like with the EA Carrier, the ancients VP file will include the new ships and the old incomplete ones.

Currently I'm waiting for the Phylaki, A new destroyer model, and 1 new cruiser design is needed to complete their vp file.

Currently the EA, Shivan, Vasudan, Maps, Hi Res Maps and Music are the VPs we have ready right now.

 
ok thats all kewl...how the heck do you extract the ships with the vp file, though? since i dont have internet connection up in my room, i cant get at the ships, making me :(  there is one thing i MIGHt be able to do, and that is vp the ships and their stuff right here on this comp and then file tranfer with floppys upstairs. whatever works. :nod: :nod:

The exe file is 980k, that will fit on a floppy...

For larger ones use winzip or winrar to span it across a few disks.

The exe itself is a self extracting rar file.

How big (in MB) is this campaign going to be anyway?

The current VP files are 45mb and there's still lots more of them to be done.

Where's that jaw drop smiley when I need it..... That'll be around 25 mb compressed! The current SHaS build is only clocking in at 1 MB compressed (of course, it assumes you have the FS port which is 10 MB uncompressed). Admittedly you have many more mods, but...

There will be no more downloads avaliable untill the campaign is completed. Since we have no artists to do the art the campaign can't be completed.

The campaign is now fully on hold untill I return to take over it fully on May 28th.

The average size of the VP files compressed is 2-4mb with only a few being larger than that. So no problems for me uploading it on my 56k modem :D
