Re: UI Overhaul?

i think the word we are looking for as far as GUI goes is "intuitive". not that it is completely counterintuitive, but the older games like "privateer" for example, seemed to be convoluted in terms of menu navigation etc. there is a slight learning curve to oolites menus and GUI. taking that learnin...

Re: Science Fiction Trivia

on the tip of my tongue. gah, the books were by some fictional author in the fictional world. the plot mirrors some of what has actually trasnpired in our current history but was way off the mark in other predicitions. slang was kinda weird, but its a british author so go figure. there are other boo...

Re: Defensive Turrets for ships

that would be cool and the most logical way to handle pilot control of the turret, however, it would also be cool to have computer aided turrets, sort of an auto mode, maybe making them not as accurate, or maybe have an upgrade system, using die roll or some other mathematics so they are not overpow...

Re: Oolite Promo Vid WIP

both are pretty cool videos. i didnt mind the sped up ship gallery, it showed variety without any specifics. while a voiceover would be cool too, probably at the very beginning before the music gets too invasive, it isnt necessary, although i would like to see a promo like that, who would voice it? ...

Re: JB WIP thread: several ships

With regards to turrets and modular entities, the positioning is specified in shipdata.plist. A position relative to the centre point of the 'mother' model is specified, and the centre point of the subentity is then located at this point. Ok smivs, that answered the question, and i think that to ge...

Re: JB WIP thread: several ships

Ok good people. Since this thread has pretty much just been a showcase of what i am willing to offer in the realm of modeling, and eventually it will showcase textures, that being said, it is not yet, nor promised that it will be a representation of everything that will end up in the game. The reaso...

Welcome back! I'm no good with 2D/3D stuff, but I think I can help with the plist files (never did for ships/stations though) and OXZ bundling.
thanks for the offer. i will be shooting you a PM in the near future!

Would it be possible to have a space elevator, pretty please :-) ? http://aegidian.org/bb/viewtopic.php?f=6&t=18876 technically it is possible with some kind of tether to a satellite in geosynchronous orbit, and probably would not be difficult to model at all, but at the same token it might be more...

Re: [RELEASE] WildShips OXP

Still kind of a novice at textures for oolite, and so far i have not really touched the whole thing, but i am sure with guidance and help from fellow modelers and texture artists we can come up with something that is more akin to the Griff style textures for the standard stations. those would also h...

Re: JB WIP thread: several ships

sure, i can attempt that. i just came back around to say i finally cleaned my old laptop and it is running way quieter and cooler now. instead of peaking at 93 degrees C, it is now down around 45-50 most times even with games running. so dust was the enemy. i will be busy for a bit IRL but i should ...
