That shockwave.  There are not words to express the awesome.

Re: Earth Defense eyecandy thread
The shockwaves are epic, and I love the backgrounds.  I think the Titan's textures are nice; they don't seem as shiny as in Blue Planet.  It was cool in BP, but this is different... and definitely cool.  Unforunately, the Raynor shot is too dark to give a verdict.

Hopefully we don't have to wait too long to see your first release, this is really looking awesome.  Keep up the good work!

(srsly guys, I tend to think you just absorb assets because they look cool rather than "is this of use to what we want to build")

if you didn't notice yet, we tend to build our assets from the ground up most of the time  :D
I won't deny that we have a few similarities with BP, but most are gameplay related, stuff like Fury AI, tough and respectable capships...
our modpack is finished for act 1, we have some really good stuff in it, and now we moved on to finishing up the missions, testing and balancing, so get used to these Titan and Raynor skins, as they are here to stay :P

It is indeed. (So awesome it's overshadowing the ships, especially with those lighting settings so you can't see them too well!)

Re: Earth Defense eyecandy thread
Epic screenies, but.......two wierd things I see going on here  :wtf:

In screenshot 2, are those beam cannon turrets floating in mid-air?

In screenshot 3, the warps look fairly like the one I made for ASW. Where'd they come from?

Re: Earth Defense eyecandy thread
what floating beam cannons? I don't see it...
the warps were modified from the mediavps version(I did it), it was meant to resemble the old blue water ones, while still retaining the high quality look and feel of the mediavps version.
anybody who wants these feel free to ask

No, they just like to have their lighting settings at "too dark to see any damn thing, thus ruining all the work the modelers put into this stuff."

To be fair how can we appreciate the team's work if we cant see it?

Honestly if all we get is lip all the goddamn time, I honestly don't see why we should even try.

Re: Earth Defense eyecandy thread
there is a time and a place for dark screenies as with anything else.  The shot of the Deimos getting torped is a good example of when it should be done because the contrast between the dark image and the bright shockwave draws your attention to it and the excelent work done there.  in contrast, shot 2 of the most recent screenies I can only see that the ship at the side firing the anti fighter beams is a Hecate (on my CRT with the contrast and brightness set as high as it will go) because it is dark outside, during the day i can only tell a ship is there because of the light clusters and engine glows

CRT monitors can be quite lacking in terms of brightness, I can see everything there just fine.

It's not that they can be, it's that those of us with them choose to set the brightness to a low rate by default, so we're not doing the equivalent of staring into a spotlight all day. :p

I have an LCD. I can see everything, provided I spend a few seconds figured out what they are from the bare outlines.

Seriously guys, if you ever want to show off new color schemes or models, turn your lighting settings up.
