Title: DEFCON FreeSpace Eyecandy Thread
Post by: ShadowGorrath on August 28, 2009, 01:57:36 PM
Hello,

This thread will be all about "showing off" the mod stuff, with little to no plot information ( backstory and all that will be posted in seperate topics, when the time comes :) ).

For the first screenshot, let me show you the USAF F-13 Kvasir, with new diffuse and shine maps made by Woolie Wool.

The Kvasir is a Generation 8 Aerospace Superiority fighter/bomber, and the standard-issue craft in the US Air Force since 2077. Kvasirs are agile, maneuverable and can carry all of the modern day weapons, such as the Vulcan ballistic cannons and the Maverick missiles. This is the fighter that you'll encounter most often when facing the United States.

Kvasir is currently buggy. Might want to talk to Esarai, it causes int3s and crashes.

Why is one of the standard missiles called the Maverick?
Title: DEFCON FreeSpace Eyecandy Thread
Post by: ShadowGorrath on August 28, 2009, 03:45:12 PM
General Battuta, I disagree. The Kvasir doesn't cause any crashes nor errors to me what-so-ever. I just ran a mission with Kvasir fighters via Debug build, with no crashes.

And it's an American produced missile, multi-purpose. Why?

DEFCON FreeSpace is based on modern aerial warfare, so the presence of a missile named 'Maverick' is justified. :)

The Maverick is a TV-guided (sometimes IR-guided) air-to-ground missile. If there's one thing the US Air Force doesn't do too much, it's reuse names. At least call it the Maverick II or something (though a Sidewinder II or Sparrow II would make more sense.)

Go check with Esarai. The Kvasir is screwed up. The last manifestation I heard was a crash (possibly intermittent rather than every time) upon rearm, but it has other issues.

For the missile issue, see above; it's going to feel really weird to fire air-to-ground antitank/antishipping missiles at other aircraft. People are going to think you don't know much about air combat if those kind of details slip through.

Post by: ShadowGorrath on August 28, 2009, 06:35:17 PM
How can the Kvasir be screwed up if it works flawlessly to me? No error reports at all, no problems with it, nothing. I can play missions in a debug build using the Kvasir without any problems.

No offence, but if Blue Planet has problems with it, it doesn't mean that the rest of us have them as well :P

As for the missiles, sure, I can rename. It's still in alpha state anyway.

Don't be silly. Of course the problems were reproduced in a vanilla-only environment. Furthermore, the modeler (esarai) is ON THE BP TEAM and said himself that the model is borked. You need to contact him ASAP. The problems may only appear in 3.6.11 if you're not using it already, but the int3s are definitely there (believe they involved rearming.)

Fury, Darius, esarai, and I all reproduced the crash bug.

Furthermore since you're using the same model BP is (the one I convinced him to release publicly!) you can be damn sure it shares the same problems.

Well, that ain't a problem really, as this mod probably won't have rearming.

Moreso, are you sure it's not because the dock points are so far in between? One of them is very high, and the other is on the ship.

Look, I'm sure Esarai will release a fixed .pof at some point, in which case you can use it. It's really not going to be a big deal to fix. Just make sure you do fix it, since intentionally including buggy content is probably not a great idea.

If it crashes when you rearm, then the rearm path is missing and you should make one in PCS2. It's not hard at all.
Title: DEFCON FreeSpace Eyecandy Thread

Yeah, I did something similar in the past. Well, I added fighterbay paths (which are IMO harder to add) and I can ensure that it's not difficult providing that you know what you're doing.

Okay. Seriously.

I have no idea if a missing rearm path was causing the crash. It seems unlikely given how much talent had examined the model.

But instead of going on and on about 'an easy fix' when the crash bug was apparently never evinced in any of your cases in the first place, how about contacting Esarai to find out the exact problem?

In fact I'll do it myself.

Ah, but I noticed that it did crash when I used it to rearm. But the fix for that was very easy.

Title: DEFCON FreeSpace Eyecandy Thread
Post by: General Battuta on September 01, 2009, 05:50:57 AM
Okay, update. The bug is not, as I thought, a dockpath one. Instead the model produces a '36 normals capped to zero' error in 3.6.11 FRED and crashes 3.6.11 release builds.

Anybody know what this is about?
Title: DEFCON FreeSpace Eyecandy Thread
Post by: ShadowGorrath on September 01, 2009, 09:27:12 AM
I have a 3.6.11 nightly and it doesn't crash. And I get the 'normals capped to zero' with the Vexor. It's probably a normal map issue, even if they're not activated.

Now, either make a seperate thread on this topic, or stop talking about it here.
Title: DEFCON FreeSpace Eyecandy Thread
Post by: General Battuta on September 01, 2009, 03:15:56 PM
Right. Well, make sure to contact Esarai, because he's definitely more knowledgeable about the problem than me.
Title: DEFCON FreeSpace Eyecandy Thread
Post by: FreeSpaceF on September 01, 2009, 08:17:16 PM
Normals capped to zero is a model error, it doesn't have anything to do with normal maps AFAIK. Probably a few zero-area polies around, I've seen it before. It needs a clean-up in a modeling program, then a reconversion (Global Import should work though ;) ) I get it in FRED 3.6.10debug as well, when I place a jump node. Hope this info is useful for Esarai.

Title: DEFCON FreeSpace Eyecandy Thread

The engine probably is... but is your computer? Say one hundred frames, in reasonable 1024x1024 quality. Uncompressed and without alpha channel, that's approximately 2.5GB of memory.

I am really curious to how exactly this works, SG.
Title: DEFCON FreeSpace Eyecandy Thread
Post by: ShadowGorrath on October 15, 2009, 08:19:08 PM
In a way... I mean, there is a hackish solution, besides making the skybox maps animated ( which would result in a huge filesize just for the skybox ). It's not animated as in a direct animation ( EFF/ANI or so ).

ADF-01 Falken reskin, otherwise known as the LT N-07 Vanagas :p :

Love it. :yes: For some reason though, the nose of it doesn't seem to fit in well with the rest of the ship (the gray colour is the main problem.) However, I'm sure others have their own opinions on the matter. And the first one, the "carrier" is really nice also. Are these all ingame shots, or have they been rendered via some other program?

And I don't assume you can shed any light on where you get those skyboxes from? :D

So what's the role of that shuttle-like thing?

I only show in-game shots here. And no, can't shed the light where I get the skyboxes from, yet :p

And the shuttle-like-thing is supposed to be a space shuttle :p Resupplying, rearming the various stations in space, and all.

Well, let us know when you can. I along with plenty of others can't seem to figure it out.

Su-53 Eradicator:

Yes, I know it sucks. I actually made it from the Su-37 Terminator. Here, have a comparison ( that screenshot is before I fully fixed the lighting, aparently ):

The main advantage of the Su-53, if it ever makes into the mod, is the new engines, allowing it to reach Mach 2.7, and a radar, making stealth on aircraft such as the F-22 useless. The Su-53 might possibly be the first fighter to utilise such a radar. Like I said, if it ever makes it into the mod, since I'm not too satisfied with it ( and no, not because of the ugly paintjob ).

The paintjob is better than I could ever do. :D The bottom one (for the texturing) looks a lot better than the top IMHO. Suits the model and fighter better.
