Screencap Contest: April 2020
There is no theme this month. Show me what you got.

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.

Scoreboard:

Re: Screencap Contest: April 2020
You might want to re-take these shots. The sneaky FPS counter gauge strikes again!

I think recent builds should hide it together with the rest of the HUD.

Re: Screencap Contest: April 2020
Hate to be the outside logic-police here: Why is there a bomber parked on a runway being used for take-offs?

On a real-life carrier aircraft are parked on the flight deck or just near the runway only if there is currently no other aircraft starting or landing; its a measure to contain the impact of any accident.

For what is water, which seeks to make all things level, which has no taste or colour of its own, but a liquid form of Nothing?" - Graham Swift, Waterland

Crashed bomber. No time to clear the wreck so pilots need to take it easy on that runway.

(also the other runway's probably in worse condition :nervous:)

Well, the port engine is sparking from damage, so I thought it was just the artist's (as opposed to the "screenshot-taker") rendition of the Artemis bomber pilot being drunk and scraping his ship against the flight deck because he got so blasted before the sortie when he found out he was gonna be fighting Shivans. ("I signed on to kill those NTF fascists! I didn't sign on to kill five-legged eldritch abomination spiders!" *GLUG GLUG GLUG*)

That's my interpretation, anyway.

I'll throw one in, why not?

"if disco is dead then I am the laser lich"
"...[Warmachine] keeps changing as fast as EatThePath can force the engine to do his dark bidding..."

 
Re: Screencap Contest: April 2020
Which campaign is that?

 
Re: Screencap Contest: April 2020
It's an as-yet unreleased standalone mission for the as-yet unreleased Warmachine.
