True. There is a certain amount of necessity being the mother of invention that would occur. I might even come with a few new tricks I wouldn't think of otherwise.

The main problem is time. I barely have enough for the stuff I need to do.

Sounds cool. :)

I tried a FRED2 only mission once. I gave up a quarter way through. :p I started  making missions with FRED2_Open, so I never got to know what I couldn't do (or find long hacks to do it).

Anybody else noticed how a Hateshput has a ridiculously narrow FOV with it's beams ? M4 has the Psmatik assaulting a rebel base but it won't fire it's beams when performing a broadside pass. It looks crap if it rolls directly infront and blasts it while sitting still plus it really needs to be the Psamtik (rather than a generic destroyer).

I may have to dust off the old POF editing skillz.....(gotta edit the Broadacia so it doesn't appear as the Iceni anyway) :doubtful:

Uh, well, funny you should ask as the Broadacia doesn't really work as is. A couple of beams and you're left looking at the Iceni. PCS doesn't like it at all so I'm modelling a similar asteroid base right now.
I was also using a modified Alistor but I may as well model something for that too. After Raider Wars and some experience of TAP, it's good to be able to do whatever I want though :biggrin1:

Damn, feature creep. :sigh:

To answer you're question, it ain't going to be PI but it looks like there will be original content, despite what I had intended. :)

I'd have said that you could simply subsystem-threshold-guardian the rock subsystems so that you couldn't get to the creamy Iceni centre but you're using retail only.

Nah thanks. This is now strictly Roanoke only. Unless I change my mind...
Nothing happening in RL today so the Replcement Base is coming along nicely. Got the Max-Pof Exporter to look forward to playing with now....

piccys!





Remember I'm using Vanilla FreeSpace so no HT&L. Appreciate any feedback.

My 1st attempt at any modelling in > 12 months.
My 1st FS modelling anything FreeSpace in > or < 2 years
Furthest I've ever got in Max Tile texturing wise.

Damn, I really miss my first few months with Freespace now I'm going through the motions again.

why no SCP? its SO much better in terms of gameplay and FRED abilities. you dont even need the graphics enhancements to run it. (as shown by me during a few months of having a piece of crap for a gfx card)

In the second picture :D

I assume that's the back. Cause putting engines on the front is a little odd.

that's the underneath and, yes, they're engines :)

nobody answered my Max-Pof query so I may have to take it through cob (though I dunno of anyone who would know about it who's still around)
