It has its own feel, no less bad-ass or awesome than the one made by Rga.

Oh, I was dreading this day would never come. I really liked the design when I saw it in the wip images.

Glad you released it, I'm going to see how high noon looks with it.

Edit: Wow, that looks a little scary. Like a living creature or something. Certainly a unique take on shivans.

Zacam: Uh. No, using an effect is okay. But you are literally using the TECHROOM ani as the weapon effect.

Great work!

As has been mentioned, it does vary from the typical style of the Shivans in so much that the overall design seems to flow in one direction. Also, I've always felt that the general shape of a Shivan ship is made by the some of it's parts, as opposed to appearing as one large, single piece forming the shape... The Lucifer is a great example of what I'm getting at.

But that's not really a critique, merely an observation on the style you chose and then executed beautfully. It looks great!

Oh, and baked glow FTW.

Out of curiosity, I will be grabbing this later today (maybe, if I have time) and comparing its performance to RGA's :P I suspect it might run a little faster?

I'm not sure. It has fewer polies, but it has four extra textures which I understand to be a more important factor when determining speed.

??... You only have one extra set (a set being diffuse, -normal, -glow, -shine).

EDIT: OH I GET IT.

Yup. One extra set. I was originally going to have five sets, but I felt that five was a bit decadent.

Yeah, it looks like a bug - that kind of bug that even gives a grown up man a short shiver of primal fear at the first look. ;)
I like that organic, insectoide style for the Shivans. Compared to the utilitarian style of the Humans and the streamlined style of the Vasudans it's Alien

I prefer the jagged "technology gone Horribly Wrong" style of FS1 Shivans. It's obviously metallic and technological but extremely unsettling and alien.

Looks fantastic--this community has built itself a tremendous hoard of riches, particularly with the Shivans of late.  Juggernauts for all!

Alright. Running the 2nd alpha shadows build by Valathil, with its requisite shaders, FXAA off, postprocessing (bloom, contrast tweak) on. 1440x810. All fps readings from ship lab.

RGA:
default zoom: 47-49 fps (min/max. Didn't do average)
Zoomed in all the way: 27-31

bobb:
default zoom: 69-75
zoomed in all the way: 38-42

I dunno... Might just be my 3 year old hardware bottlenecking in a place where newer computers don't. Also might have to do with shadows being cheaper on a model with fewer polies.

I would definitely be interested in results from a non-shadow build.

So, it ended up working all right in-game? Cool.

It uses 4 textures of equal size. Can't they be merged into a single one? Can FS even handle 8k textures?
Oh guys, use that [ url ][ img ][ /img ][ /url ] :/

It's less about what FS can handle than what most GPUs can handle.
People are stupid, therefore anything popular is at best suspicious.
