Re: Galatea Mainhall [BETA PACK RELEASE]
Now this
Other mainhalls I'm considering [...]: Arcadia, Briefing Room, Shivan Hallway... But these are just concepts and may not actually happen.
and this
I will, however, be having a go at several Vasudan mainhalls at some point including a remake of the Psamtik.
are mainhalls I would definitively (and most likely a lot of other modders out there) like to have.
I have no doubt that you would recieve a lot of support if you ever decide to give it a try.

Where can I get my "Mixael is awesome" T-Shirt ? :)

The Vasudan ones WILL happen. The Arcadia is very likely. The rest are intentioned. Things might go faster if I had more volunteers!  :)

Re: Galatea Mainhall [BETA PACK RELEASE]
Here's a video showcasing the latest.

So, give us a shopping list?  ;)  What do you need help with?

For geometry.. my next mainhall to finish is the Aquitaine. I've attached an image that has objects circled in red. Those are objects I don't have modelled yet.

One of the biggest needs is a sound designer. I need someone dedicated, who wants to really have fun and create a fantastic sound environment for my mainhalls. This includes making sound environments from scratch for the new mainhalls as well as recreating the sound environments from the retail mainhalls.

This would be things like...

  • Sound effects for doors
  • Sound effects for anything animated (cranes, elevators, vehicles, etc.)
  • Intercom sounds

But I can't stress "dedicated" enough. I don't want someone who I'm going to have to badger every other week to get progress out of. If you are interested but don't know how all the sound stuff for mainhalls works, that's OK. I can explain it, it's actually pretty simple.

Not to mention leading a mod team and being a part of several others. Oh, and the cutscene upgrade project.. there is that little project too.

Re: Orion Style Mainhalls [BETA PACK RELEASE]
Time to revitalize this. As busy as I am though, I could use some modelling help. Anyone interested?

Thinking I might give an update on where things stand.

Galatea (both variants):
  • Requires a few more misc anims (like the welder).
  • Needs the marine and officer added, both of which are modelled, they just need to be rigged and animated.
  • Needs complete audio overhaul. (SFX, not music)

Bastion (both variants):
  • Needs the marine and officer added, both of which are modelled, they just need to be rigged and animated.
  • Needs complete audio overhaul. (SFX, not music)

Krios:
  • Requires misc anims to be created.
  • Needs the marine and officer added, both of which are modelled, they just need to be rigged and animated.
  • Needs complete audio set. (SFX, not music)

Soyakaze:
  • Requires misc anims to be created.
  • Needs the marine and officer added, both of which are modelled, they just need to be rigged and animated.
  • Needs complete audio set. (SFX, not music)

Aquitaine (This one is in the very early stages):
  • Requires many new models to be built.
  • Needs the marine and several officers added and animated.
  • Needs complete audio overhaul. (SFX, not music)

Psamtik (This one is in the very, very early stages):
  • Requires many new models to be built.

Re: Orion Style Mainhalls [BETA PACK RELEASE]
This is really cool! How about different officers/maries skins for each ship? I could help to make a texture reskin or what. But anyhow it's really awesome that you decide to revitalize this!  c:

Re: Orion Style Mainhalls [BETA PACK RELEASE]
I've already got a couple different faces for the officers. The marine's face is almost completely covered, so I don't need to bother with different marines in the mainhalls (too far from the camera).

Re: Orion Style Mainhalls [BETA PACK RELEASE]
 :bump:

Finally spent some time on the new soundscape for the Orion style mainhalls. The only sounds I haven't changed yet are the retail PA sounds. These are fairly close to final. Though I'll probably change the Options Screen sound because it's somewhat difficult to pick out against the music.

Re: Orion Style Mainhalls [BETA PACK RELEASE]
I am... not enthused by the new sounds. :blah:  They sound too flat, with less detail than the retail sounds.  Also, they sound like are being played in a small metal tube; the echoes bunch up together too much.  Try using a concert hall reverb instead of a submarine reverb, if that's what you did.  Compare the echoes in pa_1.wav, exitclose.wav, etc... the echoes in those sounds occur over a much bigger volume.

 
Re: Orion Style Mainhalls [BETA PACK RELEASE]
Wow, I love how the options screen animates though.  I think you should keep the retail pa sounds, since they seem to sound fine, and they really were what gave the mainhalls their "identities" imho.

Re: Orion Style Mainhalls [BETA PACK RELEASE]
that's true, however I've got 7 mainhalls now using the same pa sounds. I'd like to add some variety.

I think the little guy skoots around on his cherry picker a little too quickly, maybe if it took a little longer to brake or didn't go quite as fast it'd be better. Other than that, awesome work, I love it.
