A new version of the Babylon Project? Holy smokes, just in time for me after I started watching B5 again  :lol: . The series makes even more sense watching it as an adult, understanding the context and references. May Valen bless all of you.

Oh what time has passed. Was a student then, am a teacher now :D . I created 3 missions with my brother back then and started a campaign. Sadly the files are all gone, but I was having a blast 13 years ago playing through all the available missions and stuff.

From delusion lead me to truth
From darkness lead me to light
From death lead me to eternal life.

 
Hey, I like what I see.  :cool:

I didn't watch B5 when it was airing on TV as I was watching Deep Space 9 at that same time slot (dueling shows mean you have to choose one over the other), but on a lark I picked up the DVD of Season 1 of B5 from Barnes and Noble one day and was immediately hooked. Now I can enjoy both shows on my Blu-Ray player whenever I want. :cool: :nod: :D

I remember one of Emis trailers he made ingame years back looked like they were ripped straight from the TV show, but the show didn't the same video quality and resolution.

I think there's an SVN where the files are being uploaded to, but I don't know who's in charge of that.

The only thing you can edit ingame is the shadow quality AFAIK.

You should contact OverDhill, he is managing the updates most of the time!

The solar panels are a dead giveaway. B5 and B4 don't have that kind. But I'll let emi_100 keep the surprise.

I am. It's not particularly a secret, anyone who wants to playtest is welcome, not just those of us who want to work on updates. Just send me a PM with the email address you'd like to use and I'll add you.

If I had to guess, I'd say an EA jumpgate.

I've send you a PM.

We have a winner! :D

Question about textures.
Is there any size limit for textures? 1024x1024 / 2048x2048 / +?
Should I use one big texture with all the maps there? or should I use separate for each one's?

New jump gate? Super sw33t!

I think the only texture limit FSO has is 32k (32768*32768). Should be enough... I've seen 16k x 8k textures for 3D planets, the largest map made for a mod ship is 8k. 4k is quite common recently, blame Nyctaeus. :D

 
Any improvements or fixes can be send to me as I am working on the 3.7.3 release

PM for my email or send me a link

Huh, I'm probably misremembering, but the jump gates in the TV show struck me as having a more oblong/oval opening rather than being perfectly symmetrical. I remember the horizontal prongs being wider than the vertical prongs. I thought it was this asymmetry that resulted in the hyperspace openings to be oval rather than circular. But, again, I could be wrong.

Jump gates appear in a number of shapes though.
