Re: Science Fiction Trivia

ExoGeni, one of the corporations mentioned in the first Mass Effect game (it appears as a main side story in the Feros mission). It was a corporation giving assistance with the human colonization (among other activities).

Not in my build.
Strange, either "Modest" or "Plus" oxp dropped over a self-build (nightly) show that type of sun.

Re: Split: Re-scaling experiment

Quick question -- is the sun expected to have the size like in the another_commander's screenshot below ?

Re: PM problems

PMs remain in the Outbox until read by the intended recipient. And no, not fixed yet. Hmm, it might be "just" a BB setting (i.e. to clean them from sender's outbox once the notification has been successfully sent to the recipient) -- so they might be fixed, but another way around :-D <the PM you re...

Re: Split: Re-scaling experiment

I think that releasing a binary would go a long way to enabling more extensive testing. Just a zip file with the oolite.app and AddOns folders should be all that is needed. Fair enough, I'll give that a go. Yeah, that would be great as I haven't managed yet to compile Oolite on my system (Slackware...

Re: PM problems

There are problems with private message notifications (both via email and in-forum) for some of us. If you've recently sent any PMs and wondered why there was no response, this is probably why. Tried to report it* over PM too, but I have two of them stuck in my Outbox -- is this fixed yet ? [ * ] P...

Re: Split: Re-scaling experiment

Wondering if the "distances" in the atmosphere shader should also need some tweaking (to be more specific, the values of 3500.0 in minDistance assignment, and 2000.0 in quant). Also do both the uniforms passed to the shader have adjusted values (e.g. one of them is "collisionRadius" and I'd expect i...

Re: Griff's normalmapped ship remakes

As a Blender advocate ( :twisted: ), I think it is worthwhile to mention here that there is 3D texture painting available in Blender. As per the RenderMonkey habits, I recall I tried it sometimes back, but it seemed to me too convoluted for just doing some simple GLSL tests. Blender was an easier ap...

Re: Griff's normalmapped ship remakes

Here's hoping for the same 4 engine trails too, if not too much to ask :-D On the technical side of the things, though, while I understand the usefulness of "Substance Painter", are you using RenderMonkey to test your shaders directly as they would look in-game (i.e. for a sort of carbon-copy from R...

Capt. A, and Dr. Who, would be two, and respectively three.

Re: Science Fiction Trivia

Ok, back to 5s: five examples of <insert your favorite poison here -- books, movies, series, games, comics, etc.> where human or alien consciousness is transferred into an artificial entity - no cyborg approach, i.e. no RoboCop.

Re: Science Fiction Trivia

[...] any number of Japanese scifi stories I can think of, for example one about a laughing man. [...] Will come with an alternative to the one you mentioned: the Mobile Fortresses in Appleseed (2004) anime movie. And of course, the one you suggested, the Tachikomas in Ghost In The Shell series.

Re: Online?

Welcome to the forums, Ajangvik!

I'd guess the answer to this question is in one of the oldest forum polls, and discussed in some other threads as well :-D
