Re: Freespace Open Trailer
Oh. My. God. The amount of win in this trailer is beyond any scale. Screw the fact that it's almost completely fanon, it's awesome anyway. I was totally blown away by the camera angles and such, I didn't even know such a thing was possible.

The angles are very possible to make. The camera motions too. But you need a lot of time and even more patience to get it all working correctly.

That's awesome, though I notice you don't have the latest 3.6.12 patch, I'd definitely suggest getting it and switching the Lucifer's forward guns to LReds.

Re: Freespace Open Trailer
Why even LReds? Shouldn't it be the orange Flux-Canons (the Hades uses them too). I only see them in the FS1-Campaign. Everything FS2-related campaigns use "normal" beams. I don't like this fact. Flux canons on a Luci - nothing else!

He's using un-modded MVPs which is why there's FS2 ships to begin with

Re: Freespace Open Trailer
I mean that Flux-canons should be standard on the Lucifer.

Oh and like MTG says - there are no Vasudans to be seen in your video. These two are the only flaws imho :)

Re: Freespace Open Trailer
Yeah. You can't be showing the awesomeness of the MVPs without showing the Hattie. And TBH, given than a Hecate has nothing to do anywhere near capship engagements, you easily see where I'd suggest you to put a Hattie.

Re: Freespace Open Trailer
My only issue with it is that it's a mix of canon and fanon. There should be plenty of canon events in FS1 and FS2 to build a good trailer, a trailer doesn't have to encompass a single event like this does.

I know what you mean. Unfortunately, none of the canon events really have this many ships going at it at the same time, nor do they have the density of chatter. It is one mission file and I'm not sure you can swap backgrounds so readily. In either case, the object limit has already been reached so swaping out for a location of equal scale isn't feasible. Anyways, the trailer isn't meant to establish canon or fanon. It's meant to be evocative rather than expository.

That's awesome, though I notice you don't have the latest 3.6.12 patch, I'd definitely suggest getting it and switching the Lucifer's forward guns to LReds.
Thanks, I'll take a look at it. The nice part of having this thing as a FRED mission is that it's easy to swap out assets and effects.

Oh and like MTG says - there are no Vasudans to be seen in your video. These two are the only flaws imho :)
I'm just racist that way...
Hah, there were a number of reasons I chose not to use vasudans. The main reason being that it would've made the thing too complicated, given the short timeframe. It's more impactful to have a polar Terran vs bad ass mutherf(#$&@#* alienz conflict. As well, the necessary accompanying audio for vasudans would have been confusing and less exciting.

I'm glad people enjoy it. I hadn't anticipated how long it would take until I was far too invested to just abandon it.
To all you FREDers out there, I applaud you. After this project, I have a huge appreciation for what you guys do. There're some pretty annoying constraints to deal with for sure. Some of the camera SEXPs can be pretty wonky. Coders, thanks for making this possible. Sure, a lot of things need improvement, but I'm not complaining. You guys are awesome!

Not really, first because the alliance between the Terran and Vasudans is very important in FS2, and secondly because the most beautiful ships in the GTVA are definitely Vasudans, and given that this video is supposed to show the visual awesomeness of FSO + FSU, you are voluntarily restraining yourself from most of this awesomeness.

Re: Freespace Open Trailer
I think all the people complaining about canon vs. fanon...seriously, is it a good TRAILER? People who see this will either A) have no appreciation of Freespace and think "wow, this is awesome, let me try this", or B) think "hey, that's not how it happened but this is cool anyway".

Nitpick nitpick.

This is flipping awesome.  It's a brilliant trailer.  Use of the audio is perfect.
So as through a glass, and darkly

Where I fought in many guises,
Many names, but always me.

Re: Freespace Open Trailer
Looks and sounds great.

This seems to me to be a trailer for the engine and effects, not FS2; canon vs. fanon is irrelevant.
