It this becomes a stand-alone version, it will be far smaller.

Probably more around 200-300MB, bur perhaps more.

With the last pre-alpha pack + some of my new things, we're @ ~50 MB.
But I've worked on the starmap. As soon as it is complete I can (and will) create Command Briefing animations. And that will add at least 50 Mb. Probably more.


It's too early to think about this, but we could put optional stuff into seperate files for dl.

A projectís web site is usually a better place (depending on how often they update it) to see what positions a need filled. Click Me.

Yeah, Between Me, Omni, Axem, and now DaBrain is learning Modeling I think we got that area pretty much covered.

:p Pah, I even said on the website, the forum is the better place to go for info. As I can only be bothered to update the site every 3 months or so. Silly Axem.

Anyhow I updated the information above, a few formatting thingys as well.

True, but the help wanted list is still more accurate than a four month old post.  ;)

I'll update the wanted list.

@ Wolf Another modder won't do any bad. There are still tons of models to do...
But we really need an UV mapper. If can help us with the UV mapping and create models, that would be great.

And BTW how good are your texturing skills?

We use .tga, .dds, and .pcx (8-bit PCX is a requirement for FRED right now) textures.

Well, technically yeah, but that's just the engine, nothing else.

You'd want to either find the ISOs, or download it from HOTU. The HOTU version is lacking a few (hundred) files, but still works. Karajorma has a guide to upgrading the HOTU version to a full version, just entails quite a bit of downloading.
