Re: What happened to Teeth of the Tiger?


I won't be able to commit due to 9 month old son, and new private sector EOD job meaning I'll be travelling a whole hell of a lot.  But it's good to see you back.
Explosive Ordnance Disposal? Can I make an assumption that robots are involved?

Hi BengalTiger,

Nice to see you back and active...

While I do want to see what will come of this, I have to say that I can't come back to help... I've to join the workforce in earnest by the end of the year 'cause I fail to "earn" my recommendations for a position that would allow me to stay in academia (also my grade average is just south of what I'd need, by a single decimal point)... so I will focus on finally pushing out portfolio stuff for myself for foreseeable future (*discomfort rising*)...


Well then maybe join in on that EOD gig?
I heard its a blast.


That really looks like I'd have to wait until 2030+. :(

@BengalTiger: Even though you're just back- do you already have some detailed plot-outline (in case enough people/somebody volunteers)? Last time I heard it was still subject to changes.

Those changes being were worked out a few years ago. Later I did some writing and now I have a coherent plot, as well as a timeline of T-M as a species in general and the evolution of their space ships that goes well beyond what TotT would cover...

Now I would need to work on the details and make mission by mission "chapters" (or at least some of them)...
Then I'll ask for help with FREDding to make it work in game.

I believe I would be able to find a 3D artist easily to help out with the models that still need work.
Much of the stuff that was sort of done will need to get remade quite a bit, I came up with some better ideas over the years.

'Teeth of the Tiger' - campaign in the making

Re: What happened to Teeth of the Tiger?
That sounds pretty good. :) I'm sorry if I bother you too much with my questions (but I still have some) :nervous:

Can you give some stats yet? I mean how many missions in total/per chapter, how many ships are planned (I've heard it's been 30 in the original)/done/need to be redone, things like that?

So TotT is going to be a chapter-based releases?

 
Re: What happened to Teeth of the Tiger?
I remember LONG ago when I was part of this testing the first 5 or 6 missions that the first campaign was supposed to be like something around 50+ missions. Correct me if I'm wrong as it was a LONG time ago. The missions I DID test were great, first brief encounter of a TM fighter at a Node, a blockade mission that was way cool and so on. The more I think about it, the more I wish I was not so busy back then.  I'd like to help again someday when this is going full tilt again, but cannot do much (like Freespace does not work well on current laptop).

I'm keeping tabs on this thread :)


Got Shivans? The SOC Ezechiel is the schnitzel! Don't leave base without it.

Well let's see...

There's like 13 player ships, from stealth fighters to interceptors, multi role fighters, strategic bombers and gunships...
I think they're all ready to go, albeit low quality in terms of visuals.
That's just on the Tiigran side of things (won't spoil anything else).

The T-M also have 2 cutters (this sort of large transport size patrol unit); 2 Destroyer Escorts (cruiser-ish size ships with less weapons but more AWACS); 2 Corvettes (IIRC this is where in game models end); 2 frigates (modeled, not finished, will need a rebuild to look better); 2 carriers (same); a Dreadnought (one of those most guns forward sort of thingies, I don't think its even textured); 2 battleships (definitely not textured, need a rebuild, these guys will have their main guns in rotating turrets)...
Also a few (actually, a lot of) ships that have .tbl entries and possibly partial models done of various other types, combat and non-combat.

As for the campaign, I'll look into it soon. So far trying to find my way through the mod files to see what needs to be done, then I'll have to make a few concept drawings and get a quick tutorial on Blender, as well as getting a friend involved.

Re: What happened to Teeth of the Tiger?
Hmm, that sounds like a doable thing, unless you start upgrading all not-100%-up-tp-date ships (I'm not a modeller though).

:bump:
Anything become of this?

No matter what others may say: Midpoly ships are still good :P
