We can get a code-side fix for player fighterbays later.

Improved meditation widget CB behavior to remove the unintentional implication that it was a brainwashing tool.

Problem is, you kinda need to be on external camera, just to gauge your ship's maneuvers accurately.
Hey, I like internal view!

I wonder how many people understand that. Probably a fair number given our content, but...

For today's commit, I present to you number 2333 from the 20th of June: "Muahahahaha. With the fixed animation code, these VLS doors are now actually WORKING! This is soooo great."

(For the record, we're right now at revision 2652)

Re: SVN Commit of the Day/capship command discussion
Nuke sub would be a good analogy.

 :sigh: i was hoping it'd b like how mine would've been on the old nova imperia mod. The ordnance kept clipping during testing though.

What? They don't look functionally any different.

Re: SVN Commit of the Day/capship command discussion
Yeah, looking at the images, our system looks very much like the SYLVER system.

Re: SVN Commit of the Day/capship command discussion
NUke subs deploy the missiles under pressure then the principle motor kicks in after a short while, the PAMS missiles STREAK/TEAR AWAY from the off at a ludicrous rate. :D :yes:

Re: SVN Commit of the Day/capship command discussion
It's a combination then. The Launchers themselves look like SYLVER, the missile behaviour is like that of a sub-launched missile, with the missiles travelling away from the launchers relatively slowly before turning to attack and speeding off.

The Sylver launcher is packed into a tight grid, is that the case with yours as well :confused:

Also, :yes: to the missile behaviour *Remembers Wing Commander the movie torp behaviour fondly

Modularized the capship ability system by separating the training message component from the events that handle timer and cooldown variables. Each ship now maintains its own separate ability timers and cooldown timers. The player can switch between ship display panes with the fourth ability slot. Each ship can receive its own suite of three abilities, and an effectively unlimited number of ships can be toggled between. This allows players to command their 'wingmen' - whether warships or fighters - to activate abilities, which can be identical to or different from the player's. Players can, for example, trigger an ECM burst on their own ship, toggle to another ship's ability pane to activate a LIDAR targeting suite, and then toggle back to their own ship to check on the ECM cooldown timer. The system is modular enough that a simple FRED-scripted AI could be implemented for certain abilities as well.

Aligned briefing grids. The things you learn from Axem.

Blargs... I remember the days of setting rotation rate to 1 and going back and forth again and again until it was aligned perfectly... :P
