2010-12-08 - Trailer 4
December 8th 2010 - Some BSG-ish action

Here it is. Diaspora Trailer No. 4. But be warned! This time you won't see any fancy new models or explosions and certainly no gameplay footage ;).

I tried to catch the feeling of the series' battles with this one, while everything is still possible ingame and needs just some fredding skills and Track IR. No effects added in post production besides the usual fade-ins and fade-outs.

Me and my PC actually went through some trouble to get this baby finished. The PC's CPU fan practically died while encoding the final release candidate and the CPU temperature reached 90°. So i had to rush to the next shop and buy a new CPU cooler to get this trailer out in a reasonable time frame. I'm happy my CPU didn't get cooked. And I'm happy the team didn't whip me for delaying the relase of the trailer another day.
And the trouble i went through... a certain neck-pain was a big issue for some days. And I don't want to speak about the laughs i earned from family members, cause i was shaking and waving my head around in front of my computer, like some... well, like some Track IR user.

P.S.: The girl died in the end.

w00t! Once again Diaspora proves itself to be above most professional-quality games. That is all simply epic.

We noticed. We'll replace the video with a grammar-nazi approved version tomorrow :D In our defense, it was 2am when this was uploaded and we were interested exclusively in getting it out the door so we could get a night's sleep. Which I'm gonna go get right now.

It's a Battlestar.  It'd designed for rapid fighter deployment.  You launch before the enemy is in range and the CIWS need to open fire.  Well that's the theory at least until the enemy jumps in close. :P

More seriously, thank you for having the courage for encoding this, even with the risk of losing your CPU  :yes:

I repeat what I said in the Eyecandy thread : your explosions are awesome ! Diaspora FTW !

I was watching, and all 'yep, pretty cool.'  And then **** started exploding.

AND I
JIZZED

MY PANTS.

Seriously, would you guys be willing to share how you made explosions like those at 0:47?  That was flippin' beautiful.
<Nuclear>   truth: the good samaritan actually checked for proof of citizenship and health insurance
<Axem>   did anyone catch jesus' birth certificate?
<Nuclear>   and jesus didnt actually give the 5000 their fish...he gave it to the romans and let it trickle down
<Axem>and he was totally pro tax breaks
<Axem>he threw out all those tax collectors at the temple
<Nuclear>   he drove a V8 camel too
<Nuclear>   with a sword rack for his fully-automatic daggers

Esarai: hey gaiz, what's a good improvised, final attack for a ship fighting to buy others time to escape to use?

Script combined with regular explosions. Script is what makes the big star flash with the trails.

Jaw...meet floor.

Every new picture and trailer you guys release is more impressive than the last. I don't know how much more of this anticipation building I can take!

not correct, its a normal explosion as well, IIRC there is no script that can create an effect like that with particles.
expect even better looking explosions, as this trailer doesn't show the new burning debris script as well as adjustment I made for the capship deaths, glad to hear positive feedback for the effects, thanks :)
