Tmp2 / Season 4 Ep 6 Discussion - SPOILERS

Overall, a great episode. Can't shake the feeling we're going for a Hamlet style ending tho.

Anyone notice the woman in sickbay the president talks to? Kept thinking where do I know her from.. the facial expressions.. then the voice hit me. It's the actress with the strange name - Nana Visitor, known to trek fans as Kira Nerys from ds9.

I will be there.
I only ask what is 3pm EST in GMT time?

Quite easy. Basically there's a six hour differential between Omni's NY clock and yours GMT+1 one.
For simplicity's sake, just add 6 hours to omni's EST each time there's a meeting.
So his 3 P.M. EST is 9 PM for you and me.
*doc Brown's voice* 'We're six hours.. in the FUTURE!'

..anyway, unless something drastically changes (in which case I'll let you know), I'll be there.

If the game only supports 4:3 resolutions, and your monitor is 16:9 (widescreen), then you'll definitely see distorted picture or black side bars. No other computer spec is relevant for this - it all comes down to your screen's native aspect ratio and what the game supports.

Ok ppl you've flown past the boundaries of good taste at full throttle. All I ask is that I don't see posts that make me vomit. So let's can the immature high-school sexual innuendo, shall we?

Aw, Mathias...

I reckon a great end to the series would be an all-out battle near one of the Solar System's outer planets, culminating with the Galactica somehow sacrificing itself to save a few civvie ships, who jump to Earth in secret shuttles. A few years later, a piece of Galactica's hull floats past Earth on a comet-like trajectory...

Jupiter or Saturn. Gas giants always look great in the background. Nice and complex systems with loads of moons, rings, debris etc.
I disagree about the heroic sacrifice thing tho - seen that scenario already, find it a bit of a cliche.
Personally I think a nice and poetic end would be that in the last episode the Galactica gets decomissioned and turned into a museum, probably some years after making it to Earth. Sort of ends where it started, for that ship anyway, which would also play a nice hommage to the "all this has happened before.." motif that perpetuates the show.

For those of you awaiting a link, I suggest reading Kewltoyz's first post.

Tmp2 / [Misc-for consideration] Tech Manual (Warning: Large Images)

BTW I don't think the Armistice station had any personnel stationed on it on a permanent basis. Basically it's an automated meeting hall with two docking ports and some solar panels. My guess is the colonials only sent the one officer there once a year. No way to check, but I'm rather certain this was the case.

Add some white "cross" markers on the recon photos.. just for atmosphere. You can see what I mean in BSG as well, check starbuck's recon pics of Earth, etc.

Just want to let everyone know I'll be out of town and won't have access to a computer/internet until Sunday night (May 4th). Got some extra free days coming up, combined with a local holiday at Thursday it makes for a nice opportunity to go sailing with some friends.
On that note, I'll leave you with the latest updates to the Valk's textures; I had planned to complete map 2 before this trip, but my bosses at work had other ideas.  map 1 (head and engines) is pretty much done, minus baking in AO, map 2 (body) is still a wip - just managed to complete the hull line layer and begin working on the scratch layers (trying to texture and pack at the same time, train leaving in two hours..)
Anyway, see you all when I get back.

Tmp2 / Ispiring one liners...

Cavil is always a good source of sarky one liners.

- "Because I'm a Cylon, and I didn't see you at any of the meetings."

- "Says god almighty the voice of reason, that's who!"

- "Do you know how useless prayer is? Chanting and singing and mucking .... "

Yeah, this guy is golden :D

Since our final release isn't exactly 'round the corner, I don't see how the existence of BTRL could influence anyone's decision to buy this game or not. If the gamers don't like something they won't buy it. Simple as that.
