cooming soon...(the last dream)

Postby Poktarl » Sun Jan 20, 2008 2:44 pm

making a new sovereign class (especially the Ent E, as much detailed as possible, like in Nemesis or First Contact) is one of my dreams since I've started with modding :D :D Hehe, and here she is :)

After fixing this weapon point problem, I want to make spot lights and nav-lights to make it more realistic, but never before I've use this part of modding in a mod. I've tried to work with the tutorial here in the forum without success :(

That looks sweet!

What I can tell you about point lighting is:

1. It is a pain in the BUTT!

2. It's alot of trial and error.

3. It is a pain in the BUTT!

4. Here is an example of pointlights syntax from the top of the Ambo saucer
001_D01_D02_!light[Power]:255,255,255:45:0:450:360
This point is 80M out from the center of the saucer and 20M above.

5 . It is a pain in the BUTT!

6. Your surface smoothing angle can have an effect on the pointlight result.

7. It is a pain in the BUTT!

8. Vertical distance and horizontal location is a big factor.

9. It is a pain in the BUTT!

You get the idea.

But take away their creature comforts...deprive them of food, sleep, sonic showers... put their lives in jeopardy over an extended period of time... and those same friendly, intelligent, wonderful people will become as nasty and violent as the most bloodthirsty Klingon." -- Quark

o.O come on, this sounds not good, I've tried the way with pcx lightning textures but looks not that good. I only know this two ways of lightning, so any idea?^^

I have to know two more things, first how to do new weapon sounds? I can't find any useful .acm converter. And second, I can't target the primary weapons in game. The ship file seems to be ok. Will somebody have a look at it please :)

That really is a nice version of the Sovereign class, it seems a little darker than the other releases that I've seen. I think it looks nice like that, but some minor lighting would look really good on it though.

I'm sorry SC, it's now available for download yet. Last thing to do is the ginsu, in my eyes THAT'S really a pain in the ass :(

@ teeth.

your maybe right, but no energy means no light from the engine so it's instant dark (black)!? :o

I've got sort of an unimportant question. Where do you have the torpedoes set up to fire from? I noticed the two tubes under the deflector dish, but I was wondering if you had it set up more like in Nemesis?

Basically I was wondering if you might have used the schematics from nemesis as a basis for the weapon layout?
