All quiet here.....

Recommended Posts

OK, I have uploaded nine shots, showing the new shield impact (the bluish ellipsoid only appears briefly when the shield is hit), cloak/decloak and a dimension jump (think: hyperjump but with steroids) FX.

If the pics don't blow you away, the movies will. Am uploading 2 movies. The first one is finished uploading as of this writing, the second one is on its way up and should be finished in about 15 mins from the postmark of this post.

Enjoy!

Love that cloak, but I can't make too much of the Dimensional jump thingy, even with a movie. Looks pretty though smile.gif I think the menu text is too fuzzy though, just MHO

Eclipse, I've said over and over that all the text use temp fonts. Apart from that, when you downsample a TGA file to JPEG it loses precision (due to compression) and so, everything, not only text, is fuzzy. Its the difference between a 1.5MB TGA file and a 100K JPG file. Take your pick.

The DJump FX is simple. When you press alt+9 to jump, the anomaly forms and slowly moves from the front of the ship to the back. The cool thing is that, get this, the part of the ship that has already disappeared at point A (as the DJump anomaly moves over it) immediately appears at the destination point B. This continues until all the ship appears at point B and completely disappears at point A. So, if you were in tacOPS and observe a ship doing a DJump, you would see both halves of it at point A and B until it completely disappears at point A.

Wanna see what happens when some jackass drops a DJump device on a planet (something that I won't allow in the game)? Look at these two pics:

Ye gads ..... seeing somthing like that happen from near orbit of the Earth would be a trouser soiling moment indeed. It got me rubbing my hands together, thinking ultimate weapon (R.A.N.D.O.M PLUS). Looks purdy too boss. smile.gif

Oooooooh baby...

Thats some sweet stuff. Hopefully in another month or so, we'll have that sweet, sweet demo on our HD's.

Well, at least I've stopped getting the urge to watch the Halo movie every couple of minutes.

I have been trying to take in all this wonderful stuff that you are tossing at us. I find it hard not to rush out and bug the vendors about their target date for BCM. My frustration is only tempered by the anticapation that it will be out soooon.Thanks SC for all the "eye-candy", not that I need it to keep my interest up smile.gif">...<P>------------------

Really nice shots SC.

I just wonder if you are gonna improve the autopilot. I can remember one of the main problems I had in bc3k was to keep the ships from commiting suicide by crashing in the ground upsdide down or with the nose facing straight down when I left them on a planet with the AP on.

Upgrade to v2.0 and you won't experience that problem.

And its not an A/P issue, its the AI for the pilots. In v2.0x, ground avoidance also helps them. But an inexperienced pilot isn't going to keep a craft above ground, regardless.

WOW SC, those are some gorgeous shots for a set of sore and tired eyes!

Where's me heart pills? The strain of waiting....

Looks like will be much worth the wait!
