New terrain shots

Supreme Cmdr

Recommended Posts

I am going to be releasing 50 shots this weekend, to go along with my latest dev status over on my dev page.

And yes, collision is active. In fact, those rocks bounce of you and each other, when they collide. And you can blow them up, hide behind them etc.

I am planning to support mining of asteroids themselves, in GCO. You'd be able to deploy a new type of mining drone which mines the asteroid itself by just driving over it, as it does on the planet.

Also, you can hide behind some of those rocks. e.g. the largest rocks (asteroid9/10) are 2752'x2997'. You can hide a carrier behind it. In fact, if you have the BCM beta or the demo, try this:

  1. Fire up BCStudio

  2. Select View->Resolution->1024x768

  3. Select File->Open->asteroid10.3d

  4. Press + hold the END key to zoom out a reasonable distance.

    To zoom in/out faster, you can increase the zoom step by first pressing SHIFT+S and entering a value. e.g 5.0

  5. With the asteroid in the center of the display, select Model->Instance->Load->starcarrier.3d to load an instance of this craft into the scene.

  6. Now LEFT click anywhere near the asteroid to place the ship.

    RIGHT click to exit INSTANCING mode (the ship anchored to the cursor will disappear).

    LEFT click anywhere in the display to exit SELECT mode (the Red box on the ship will now disappear)

  7. Now that you have a ship next to the asteroid, you can see the scale difference. To move the ship to a different location...

  8. LEFT click on it to SELECT it. If it doesn't get selected, go to Model->Instance->Select-> and pick it from the list of models in the scene.

  9. With the model selected, LEFT click on the MOVE MODE icon (#6 from the left, on the icon bar). Now just drag the mouse to move the model to the desired location. Select the MOVE MODE icon again to exit this mode.

Here are some sample pics




See if you can spot the Zenstar fighter in between the Aestrom carrier and Starcarrier cruiser.

What I love to call ....Europa in the shadow of Jupiter

Start crying...




Here are the 48 shots am releasing tomorrow, to go with my dev diary update. Consider this a first look. Notice the kick-ass level of detail on the terrain, from ground zero.
