Wonderful job, Emperorniko! I have only seen one other mod that had this unit in it, and the name of the mod escapes me at the moment...
"Cannock class" infantry support unit (ISU)
A planet like Jabiim, for instance?
Question: Will these tanks or those of the other factions, have the ability to crush enemy infantry by running them down? That feature was a plus in the original FOC game, when getting to play as Garm Bel Iblis...
When a unit turns on a cloaking device, it appears to me that the unit's model either has their opacity changed, or a different model image is used.
(Not being a modeller, I am not familiar with the procedure.)
If the latter is the case, then why not create the cloaking effect for the Rebel sniper to be a regular Storm Trooper model? Then by activating the cloak, the model of the sniper is replaced by a Storm Trooper, and the desired end is achieved.
Thanks for the promise, Jedi_Clone_X2; my graphics card is an NVIDA GeForce 6200, and the MTDCommand files are not displaying well for me either.
Excellent! It looks just like Obiwan did in the Clone Wars Animated Series.
I believe that this is the console which Silri used the knowledge of the Sith holocron to access, wherewith she discovered a Sith Lord, and an army all nicely preserved in carbonite.
According to some SW books, the clan name of the Hutts was supposedly only known to the clan family itself; thus for Zahn to name a turret after the family name of Jabba the Hutt, and thereby flaunting that which is dear to the Hutts, does seem like something that he would do; its deliciously malignant.
A "Desilijic" light turret; named after Jabba the Hutt's family; a judicious insult to Tyber Zahn's rival.
A "Conciliator" light turret.
A shard cannon.
The "Cannock" light turret.
Installed on my system sir, is 2GB of Dual Channel memory of the G-Skill brand. My pc is an eMachines T4010, running Windows XP Home Edition SP3, and an NVIDA GeForce 6200 graphics card.
This last time that I tried to run the mod, I only installed the mod files; none of the patches of fixes were installed.
I took your advice Yoden, although the game still crashes only a few seconds after the "Yoden Mod" loading screen appears. Odd...
Your pardon Yoden, but I am also having the same problem as warton567. I use the Gold Pack edition, and installed your mod exactly as you instructed. I installed the FOC Ram Update, after repeated crashes with your mod, believing that it would help solve the problem, but to no avail.
My system is a 32bit machine, currently running the Windows XP Home Edition. Any help in this matter would be appreciated.
Delta289 has a point; those who worked on the series are usually given payments whenever their work is broadcast by a legitimate broadcasting company. Since YouTube is not a broadcasting company, but rather a file sharing site (technically), they do not have to pay for the rights to show the series.
Payment to those who worked on the series would depend on their contractual agreements; thus the designers, - etc. may have only been paid for their work once, and not every time that their work is shown, although those who hold the rights to the series would.
Superb workmanship, Kharcov; you are doing an excellent job in bringing the ancient Sith to life!
Thank you for the Corellian cookie Larry-3, it was delicious. There are two things that I wish to say regarding my previous post:
1. The "uniforms" to which I referred in the second post, are the ones mainly worn by the officers of the Empire. The uniforms were cut in the same fashion as those used by the British and Germans.
2. There was a Japanese element in the Star Wars films: George Lucas said in an interview that the inspiration for Darth Vader's helmet came from the helmets warn by the Samurai warriors of Japan. Thus the two main Axis Powers are represented in the Star Wars films.
In a way, the droids of the Trade Federation / CIS are a lot like the Japanese of WWII: the droid soldiers are robots, they had no flexibility in their orders, and they served unquestioningly in doing anything that their superiors ordered, including suicide missions.
The Japanese soldiers were much the same way: they were not flexible in interpreting their orders; whatever they were told to do, they either did or died trying. Their loyalty to their Emperor was absolute.
Aside from this, "Star Wars" drew heavily from WWII. The "Empire" was modeled after the "Third Reich," which in German means "Third Empire."
When watching the movies, you will notice that the uniforms are cut in the same fashion that the German and English militaries of WWII used.
The emphasis on the Imperial Navy, corresponded with Germany's reliance on their naval superiority.
The word "storm trooper" was coined by the Germans for their heavy infantry. En.wikipedia.org
What we must remember though, is that WWII had been over for roughly 33 years, and therefore using German actors or names in the film would have been seen as far more than merely bad taste. At it was, the German tactics, tech, machines, names, -etc. gave George Lucas more than enough adaptable material to help create a believably evil "Empire." As for the British side: with American and French aid, the British had a large part in helping to defeat the Axis Powers; so to use British actors to help play the villains would not be seen in a bad light, not like it would have if German or Japanese actors had been used.
When "Star Wars" began official casting, George Lucas knew that he would need big name actors and actresses to help sell the movie to movie going audiences.
Alec Guinness was a peer without equal, both in the black & white film era, and in color. Well established, and undoubtedly British.
Perter Cushing was well known as the Sheriff of Nottingham in "The Adventures of Robin Hood" starring Richard Greene. This series ran for a long time, and was pretty good. Peter Cushing also played in many other distinguished roles as can be seen here:
Carrie Fisher is the daughter of Debbie Reynolds and Eddie Fisher, both were the iconic stars of their time, and thus a movie starring their daughter would draw a large block of viewers.
If you go to the link below and look up the principle characters of the original trilogy, you will find that they each were fairly well known before they did Star Wars. For Lucas, using these established actors was a wise choice, and really helped to sell the movie.
Are the weapons emplacements turbo laser turrets, flak cannons, or mass drivers?
Nice textures, EmperorNiko!
A high end gaming system? I am almost envious...
That explains why your computer can handle the larger graphics... *Grin*
16GB of DDR3? Are you running a Dell Precision 670?
Well, reinstalling the patch didn't work; I did find two things of note though:
1. When comparing the size of the MTDCommand.tga file from your mod to those of several others, I found that those mods which work fine on my pc are 2048x2048 pixels, where yours clocks in at 8092x4096.
The mods which I compared to yours were:
Absolute Corruption 2.4
Alderaan's Rebirth (Current Version)
FOC Alliance Star Trek 1.0
Pirates vs Mandalorians
Rise of the Crime Lords
Rise of the Mandalorians
Second Great Galactic War
Super Star Wars (Current Version)
The Reckoning: Carbonite Edition
z3r0x Full AddOn 3.5
2. This is a quote from a modder on the Petroglyh Forums:
"t might be possible that the dimensions (width x height) are simply too large. The commandbar gets loaded as a texture, and if you make it too big, some graphics cards simply cannot load it."
Considering these two items of note, it may be that your system is better suited to the larger set of graphics, and that those of us with older systems are not able to handle it properly. This might explain why the graphics display fine for you, but not for those of us with older pc's.
My current system is an eMachines T4010, with an Nvida GeForce 6200 graphics card, and Windows XP Home Ed. (SP3). What system are you using, EmperorNiko?
Curious, considering Rex9119 was asking the same question... *Grin*
I will try reinstalling the FOC patch, perhaps that will help... Thanks EmperorNiko.
Perhaps I should clarify my earlier statement:
I downloaded the updated file today around 2:30pm CST, and I installed it about seven minutes ago, and the problem was still there. Oh, and I live in Arkansas, where the US Central Standard Time applies. *Grin*
MAW: Mando Assault Walker
Some problems are like the "Hound of Resurrection" from the movie: "Hellboy," they keep coming back.
EmperorNiko my friend, it's back. I downloaded the updated file around 2:30pm US CST, and I installed it about seven minutes ago, and the problem was still there.
I have a screenshot of the main screen located here:
