Yup! Finally releasing the GTB Medusa for all.

Couple notes:

You need MjnMixael's updated thruster .anis for this.

Download (High Rez Textures Version)

And an image of the older models for reference:

Awesome work, downloading now!

P.S. The hot pink colour sucks.

P.P.S. Can you change it to green, with a blueish hue?

Noice.

Does this version force us to use modeled thrusters, or do thruster effects (or whatever the thing is that everything else uses) work?

On the next MVP release will it have thicker afterburner trails?

You can have both modeled thruster and the thruster effect.

Nice work Hades
Full Auto - I've got a bullet here with your name on it, and I'm going to keep firing until I find out which one it is.

Former, as the thruster points are not set for usage of the sprites. I don't see why you wouldn't use the modeled thruster, they look far better than the sprites ever will.

GOOD WORK !
Never far away from HLP and from a computer with an installed FreeSpace.

I agree with you. It's just that for consistency sake, it'll look strange as one of the only ships with modeled thrusters. I'm guessing (hoping) that the next MVP will feature more things with modeled plumes?

It would have to be every Strike Craft in FreeSpace including mods eventually.

No they don't. Could easily be different engine technology all together, or different engines.

Arsepull justifications aside, it's not really that noticeable in-game, so it's no biggie.

To actually answer your question, I recall Zacam expressing interest in eliminating non-modeled thruster plumes altogether in the Media VPs, but I don't know if anything conclusive came from this.
Who uses forum signatures anymore?

 
I just played some fsport with the new medusa. It looks great and the modeled thrusters are pretty awesome; however the turret seems to be a prometheus-R when I was playing the missions doomsday and evangelist, so be wary of this download.
