DEFCON FreeSpace Eyecandy Thread
« 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?

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.

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.

Shadow Gorrath, you should consider cooperation with Woolie Wool's mod. What do you think?

We're sharing various stuff and information. Something like that. But the storylines and all are separate.

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.
