Screencap Contest: July 2019
Good evening Twitter, it's ya boi Neon Shivan and about 40 to 45 minutes ago, I beat the crap out of these Shivans so God damn hard I can't feel my left Prometheus. My left Prometheus has gone totally numb.

July's theme is: Terran Pride. In celebration of humanity's achievement of kicking Alien butt y'all will post your greatest screenshots showcasing Terran supremacy over the xeno scum. Bonus points will be rewarded to those who include explosions in their screenshots. You know, cause it's 4th of July week and all that.

May the best photographer win.

The rules are:

1: No HUD! (Jump nodes are ok though!)
2: Images must be presented as they would be as seen with only the FSO engine rendering the image. Remember that these entries help to show off what the engine can do for new players! So that means no after the fact photoshopping (except for cropping), and no external shader programs (reshade and the like). No lens flares, contrast shifts, colorizers, etc.
3: Max 3 entries per person!
4: Again, these screenshots are a way to promote Freespace and the FSO Engine - let's keep it in good taste.


Nightmare: 1
Colt: 3
0rph3u5: 1
MitoPL: 1

Must resist urge to stage a Terran fleet like a Nazi party ralley in Nürnberg :shaking:

Decided to go Blue Planet themed  :nod:. I imagine something like this being used as GTVA propaganda targeted towards the citizens of the UEF.

"Citizens of Sol! Witness the fate that awaits our nemesis!"



 
Re: Screencap Contest: July 2019
Hmm, this is definitely going to get some shots from me this time. Also from a rather unexpected source, I think :P

Great shot, Colt. As always!

Re: Screencap Contest: July 2019
While I was hard pressed to actually engage in the premise of the contest this month (#EmancipatoryXenophilia), turns out I actually got two screenshots that fit the premise:


The GTD Enterprise delivering the killing blow to the SD Kraken in Scroll of Atankharzim

And what could be more "Terran Pride" than in-fighting?


The NTD Vindicator running the GTD Carthage's blockade of the Capella-Gamma Draconis Node in The Lost Generation - Ashcroft

ps. Sorry Colt, can't have you win by default.

EDIT: Added 2nd screenshot.
EDIT2: added post-script

Re: Screencap Contest: July 2019
"By default" is the significant section of the sentence.

Wining without contest wouldn't be fun, don't you agree? :D

I absolutely agree! I just made an excuse to make me try at a second submission (if/when time permits :rolleyes:).

Re: Screencap Contest: July 2019
So, this time The Aftermath: Reboot.

The 7th Fleet arriving to deal with an unexpected guest.




The Excelsior and Hercules and their timely rescue of war-scarred Titan and Babylon. (screen0360.jpg)




The rebuilt Titan and Hercules unloading their weapons at their target. (screen0420.jpg)



(Yes, these filenames are just a coincidence :P)

#3 looks like a strong contendee IMO   :yes:

Re: Screencap Contest: July 2019
I bite into Nr 2. Does the Aftermath actually have bright beam impact glows too? I though I had 'invented' them. :(

 
Re: Screencap Contest: July 2019
Not sure. I didn't really look at this in detail - beams hit, it glows! Who cares how bright it does. But my guess is that's related to the screencam script being turned on for a bit when I was roaming around to find a good shot.

What is definitely interesting in this mod is that the (blue) beams tend to lose brightness over distance. I think I didn't see a similar effect anywhere else.

Re: Screencap Contest: July 2019
Probably that's caused by the +Range in the blue beams.

Awesome pic BTW :-)
