Re: MediaVPs 4.2.X Discussion Thread
Two months between releases is probably an FSU record. Upload completed. Enjoy.

Re: MediaVPs 4.2.X Discussion Thread
Ok, just installed the latest MediaVPs but while all the Terran and Shivan ships have the high poly models, all the Vasudan ships are lacking them; all the Vasudan ships look just like the old retail models. What gives? :confused: :confused: :confused:

Verify file integrity. You probably got a bad download on MV_Assets_V

Re: MediaVPs 4.2.X Discussion Thread
Yup, bad download on both MV_Assets_V and MV_Advanced. Redownloading now.

EDIT: That did the trick, thank you soooo much.

On a related note, if I see a similar error in mods, say like seeing a particular ship in Derelict not having the upgraded graphics, should I just do a "verify file integrity" on that mod to see if that cures the problem?

Re: MediaVPs 4.2.X Discussion Thread
For individual mods, that really depends. You should wait for mods to update for 4.2.x compatibility instead of trying to force it.

Yeah, I noticed how some mods automatically updated for 4.2.x compatibility and others didn't. I'm not gonna try to force it just yet. Fair enough.

Re: MediaVPs 4.2.X Discussion Thread
Ugh...I thought the bug where Knossos wants to redownload a bunch of files that weren't changed had been resolved before ngld went on hiatus, but apparently not.  The initial 4.2 download looked like it was getting all of the CB_anis again, and now this second update is starting with MV_Music of all things. :(

The actual update content looks fantastic though!  :yes:

What's a Sathanas MOI?

Mjn.mixael's Odd Import?

Mod Of Immolation?

Mission of Importance?

Monument of Incandesence?

Morons Of Ignorance? (Yeah that last one is kinda redundant and not relevant at all to the current conversation, but w/e, I'm just spitballing here...)

Moment of Inertia is how the model rotates and reacts to kinetic force.

The Myrmidons light on the "rear-tips" are blue, while they're yellow in retail.

Re: MediaVPs 4.2.X Discussion Thread
The glow points were copied from the model that's been in the MediaVPs for years. Shoulda complained about it much earlier.

*sigh*

Really.

Texture colors? You're complaining about minor texture colors now like it's a bug. Nope. That's an artistic choice.

Hey, I like those blue light tips! Electric light blue is my favorite color.
