First off i totally love the BP mod it is such a polished piece of story telling and varied mission styles put some big budget games to shame, esp with the latest patch i just live the new titan model. While the GTVA and UEF have been getting a lot of new asset love and just rightly so what about the Vishnans? They have some high poly models but what about the likes of the apocalypse and some of the old inferno models, will they be getting any TLC down the road?

Also while looking through the vps i came across a pof named demeter(sp) which looks like a freighter but it doesnt seem to be in any of tbls of the tech view is that an unused model? As i think its pretty cool.

if there is any consistancy with the Shivans, it's their lack of consistancy - -Norbert-

The Demeter shows up in the very first mission of War in Heaven. It's also the class of the Nauticus, from For the Wrong Reasons. It's also used in a couple cutscenes. That's plenty of usage for a civilian freighter in a military conflict.

schrödinbug (noun) - a bug that manifests itself in running software after a programmer notices that the code should never have worked in the first place.

When you gaze long into BMPMAN, BMPMAN also gazes into you.

<Aesaar> literary criticism is vladimir putin

<MageKing17> "There's probably a reason the code is the way it is" is a very dangerous line of thought. :P
<MageKing17> Because the "reason" often turns out to be "nobody noticed it was wrong".
(the very next day)
<MageKing17> this ****ing code did it to me again
<MageKing17> "That doesn't really make sense to me, but I'll assume it was being done for a reason."
<MageKing17> **** ME

<MageKing17> God damn, I do not understand how this is breaking.
<MageKing17> Everything points to "this should work fine", and yet it's clearly not working.
<MjnMixael> 2 hours later... "God damn, how did this ever work at all?!"
<MageKing17> so
<MageKing17> more than two hours
<MageKing17> but once again we have reached the inevitable conclusion
<MageKing17> How did this code ever work in the first place!?

<@The_E> Welcome to OpenGL, where standards compliance is optional, and error reporting inconsistent

<MageKing17> It was all working perfectly until I actually tried it on an actual mission.

<IronWorks> I am useful for FSO stuff again. This is a red-letter day!

<MageKing17> TIL the entire homing code is held up by shoestrings and duct tape, basically.

Starbug means the unused pof in the modpack from SolCommand. One of these days I'll remove it from the bp svn.
