Title: Updated screenshots
Post by: WMCoolmon on February 05, 2006, 11:57:09 PM
HLP is down, so posting here for now...

I've updated my screenshots site (http://fs2source.warpcore.org/wmcscreenies) with some screenshots I've had floating around...so far updated sections are:
LM
Inferno
Derelict
FSPort

(These only have one more screenie)
Bloopers
Main

I also uploaded a series of ship shots from the lab, the ZIP with these can be downloaded via the link at the top of the main page.

Finally, I've uploaded a very old attempt (http://fs2source.warpcore.org/test/wmc/ancients1,zip) that I made at recreating the Ancients monologues in fs2_open. Due to bugs at the time, I couldn't get the aspect ratio (black bars) working, so I never really finished it, in fact, the mission is basically a crappy BG :p (See included screenies). I just didn't have the heart to delete it entirely...

Well was not sure were to post this so i will do it here.  Loved the screenshots, especially the Leviathans and the Herc Mk 1s(allway had a soft spot for them). Two questions 1) have all the fighters in FS2 Open been modified to have cockpits? 2) Has anybody tried mounting a beam cannon on a fighter? kind of ala Cowboy Bebop's Swordfish one shot and it needs to recharge for a minute backed by some plink cannons like HL7s or somthing.  Just a thought might make for a nice specialty fighter.

Beams on fighters was about the second thing added to the engine :D

Take a look at the demo movies for Inferno for an example of them in action :)

Holding back... Must NOT pun, HLP is down, losing containment... :shaking:

  "Very true, but of course the FIRST thing  you add is life suport so the pilot can test the engines." :D  - Ok I feel better now!

Beams on fighters? Heresy! Now who would do such a thing? (pay no attention to the fighter phasers)...

Anybody wonder how Shivans fit into fighters?  I mean thier almost Rhino sized, unless most of the fighter is devoted to cockpit.  I saw that the Herc and the Persues had cockpits installed(which look excelltent by the way) has SCP installed cockpits in most of the fighters?

If you play FS2 and listen to the exerpt from Dr. Hargrove's initial report on the Knossos (subspace portal at the time), she says that the Shivans vary greatly as a species.  I suspect that there are shivans that are bred specifically to be pilots... perhaps even specifically for certain craft classes.  You could fit a larger pilot and crew into a Seraphim, than you could to a Manticore.

Nope. But asking on the Inferno forums on HLP should get you them :)
