Re: Earth Defense eyecandy thread
I demand you retexture the Raynor and Titan so they don't look like the obvious Blue Planet ripoffs they are!

(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")

No, for serious, don't get started on those textures. We've had a hundred texture schemes for those already, this really is the better-looking one.

Those backgrounds are eye-meltingly awesome.
[16:57] <CommanderDJ> What prompted the decision to split WiH into acts?
[16:58] <battuta> it was long, we wanted to release something
[16:58] <battuta> it felt good to have a target to hit
[17:00] <RangerKarl> not sure if talking about strike mission, or jerking off
[17:00] <CommanderDJ> WUT
[17:00] <CommanderDJ> hahahahaha
[17:00] <battuta> hahahaha
[17:00] <RangerKarl> same thing really, if you think about it

Yes they are. Watisname should recreate FS backgrounds for mediavps as well. :)

Surely after release of Act I (which is very soon hopefully :) ) you will get 'em for mediavps.

It's not looking very soon and if the next MediaVPs roll around first those nebula should go into them.

Re: Earth Defense eyecandy thread
You do mean as an addendum to the LS nebs right, not a replacement?

Re: Earth Defense eyecandy thread
I think that would probably be good. I'm not sure these are necessarily drop-in replacements.

Re: Earth Defense eyecandy thread
Yeah, definitely not - a lot of my BGs are designed to meld different shapes together neatly - I'm sure a lot of people do that. As nice as these nebs are, dropping them in 1 for 1 to existing missions would make a lot of backgrounds noticeably less pretty.

Re: Earth Defense eyecandy thread
As is the case with effects and maps that are eventually replaced, background bitmaps shouldn't be an exception. As long as mediavps missions are updated, I see no problem with drop-in replacement. I'm sure there can be some sort of vp-file for deprecated mediavps assets for missions/mods that depend on mediavps and the current background bitmaps.

Re: Earth Defense eyecandy thread
But effects and maps aren't individually applied...

No, wrong thread for this, and wrong forum. The screenies are awesome guys, I see lots to like. Been looking forward to ED for awhile, and now even more so :)

Re: Earth Defense eyecandy thread
There are a lot of fantastic assets. The hard work is going to be pulling a campaign together around them. The story is actually firmed up pretty well and some semidecent missions have come together, and the new FREDders are a godsend.

Re: Earth Defense eyecandy thread
Would sure as hell hope we don't take that long to release Act 1. But yeah, if the next MVP's are set to come out before our release, then why not.

Did you at least keep them? It'd be kinda nice to have a stock of existing retextures.

Re: Earth Defense eyecandy thread
These are the most rich images I have ever seen in a freespace mod (and that's saying a lot). I've found a new desktop background if that's ok.

I'll be paying attention to ED.
