RELEASE: HadNyxified Shiny Fenris
I literally have no idea how many ships I ever made. But about a month ago I realized that except for fix for HTL Ulysses, I never made any contribution to FreeSpace Upgrade Project o___O. Shame on me!

Hades' gorgeous HTL Fenris is gathering dust since 2014, while HTL Leviathan is bristling with fancyness since the release of MVP 3.8. For this reason I contacted FSU Team and Hades, and obtained the mesh. Rest of the story is obvious. Fenris is one of the oldest HTL ships in MediaVPs, so it's about time for it to catch up it's younger, heavier brother in terms of quality :)

She's obviously dran'g'drop replacement for Fenris in current MVPs and comes with her own modular table to replace MVP one.

hmmmm... what about a... HTL Demon? ;7 It looks so ugly next to all the fancy new stuff from INF although I always liked the original design, and I'd guess if you can't do it, nobody ever will.

Re: RELEASE: HadNyxified Shiny Fenris
Are they even available? I remember some years ago people were discussing that because all of them went missing (also, TrashMan made one too).

BTW
Detail1 => "turret09n-01-main" should be "turret09b-01-main"
Detail2 => "turret09c-01-main_001" without _001

A Fenris! It'd be a shame if someone were to... lob a bunch of tempests at it...

But seriously this looks real nice. Going to give it a try later today.

Fixed.

None of them was ever completed. Oddgrim's one is the most advanced, but still in pretty early stage.

I see, the chance of this happening is tiny. :( Well, that way I can put more of them on screen. :drevil:

Re: RELEASE: HadNyxified Shiny Fenris
WOOT!


Could you please make a slightly less-shiny version?  Because if you go into the F3 shiplab and set the Gloss override to around 100 it looks Waaay Better and more contestant with the Levi IMHO.

Still, looks great either way!

Re: RELEASE: HadNyxified Shiny Fenris
I don't think there are many ship individual ship mods on Knossos - this thing here will hopefully be part of the MVPs soon, so I don't see the need for it.

 
Re: RELEASE: HadNyxified Shiny Fenris
This is glorious.

Now I'll have regrets when shooting down these! :P

Nope, this is other Fenris. Glorious was destroyed in Regulus :]

It won't be on Knossos unless somebody add it or Mjn.Mixael include it in MediaVPs. I see no reason for Knossos release for single ship.

Re: RELEASE: HadNyxified Shiny Fenris
 Uh, I'm saying this a second time because I think it was missed, but I would like an optional less-shiny version please.


To be blunt: Having a Matt gray Leviathan and a CHROMETM Fenris is kinda off-putting.  Screenshots with comparison: 
(the last one is a Fenris with the gloss override set to 100 because I think that looks better) Sorry if it seems like I'm nagging.

Re: RELEASE: HadNyxified Shiny Fenris
In fact almost whole Leviathan was supposed to be metallic, but fightermedic broke something during the conversion and whole Levy is covered in... Something different. Dunno. DahBlount confirmed that current Leviathan has broken reflectance values.

I won't change Fenris because this is how metal behave. Your bloom settings are responsible for this overshiny effect. Glowmaps indicate that you use some higher value.

Re: RELEASE: HadNyxified Shiny Fenris
I think you misunderstood our conversation about the Leviathan. The big issues with the Levi textures are artifacts introduced by DXT compression and some minor issues with reflectance values being somewhat off from the intended values. For what it's worth, fightermedic intended the Leviathan to be painted with some edge wear that exposed bits of metal, he said so himself.

In addition, I don't understand your conclusion that the Fenris is so metallic. Volition did not establish any ships as being metallic and it clashes with every other ship in the GTVA that others have worked on.
<Axem> yet still more insightful than #hard-light

<Axem> jad2.23 will just be cat videos

<DahBlount> So
<DahBlount> JAD2.2 is like that
<Axem> maybe
<Axem> it can be whatever you like!
