Alright let's keep it on our familiar two HW2 races.
At least initially. I have to admit I love Taiidan, so maybe somewhere down the line I'll make a Taiidan and Kushan Battlecruiser to level them against the Vaygr and Hiigaran. But not now. I can't promise you a focus and then spread it over four races right after.

The goal in general is to enrich the game with meaningful units. Take the Vaygr Artillery Frigate and a Hiigaran Drone Frigate as an example. The first is a long range unit that has no equivalent in the vanilla game, the other can shoot down the first one's missiles and kill the Vaygr strikecraft.

We have the HODOR tool now (although I haven't tested it yet), so once I'll finish the textures and make the normal map, I can attempt to put it into the game (if I understand correctly what it does).

"Make it work" -if by 'it" you mean the mod itself, then there's a news article waiting to be authorised that should give you a view into how I am going to make it work.

It's really more about the HW1 models being smaller in comparison to the HW2 ones. If you remember, they scale differently. A HW1 Destroyer is only a bit bigger than a Frigates, a Heavy Cruiser only a bit bigger than the Destroyer.
I would dare to guess the new Taiidan model is about our standard Destroyer size.

Since you have single fighters/corvettes and there are a lot of them, I would personally make their TO Icons half the size they originally have. I believe it would certainly help to keep the screen clear and easier to orientate. Even though it's not the way it was in HW1.

So may I? I wasn't going to say any of the below, but then you said this.
My fighters die too fast, frigates, carriers and especially collectors move way too slow.
And it's not to say I don't like single fighters. Getting rid of squadrons is a valid gameplay decision, I don't argue against that and I respect that. It's just that it felt painful when I was attempting to micromanage them. My old habbits combined with an inability to save them regardles lead to a bit of a frustration. The obvious solution is of course armor them up a bit. But maybe it can be done more elegantly with tuning the accuracy and weapons in general, so the hits are maybe more damaging, but spread further apart so your chance to escape increases.
I know it's probably not healthy to micromanage single fighters, but I believe a lot of players (including me) will. And so it probably might be done more friendly in that manner.

Fighter unit cap felt a bit restrictive. Speaking about unit caps, what are your views about the old HW system (although a word "system" isn't maybe a right way to describe a complete lack of class based unit caps).

Also I've seen some problems in smoothing groups (namely I remember a weird things around the Taiidan corvette cockpit).

The Taiidan carrier. Was it from FX or something? (the hologram remind me of something I've seen before) In any way, his texture work seemed a bit chaotic. Like a camouflage on a soldier it complicates the recognition of its shape.

I love what you're doing and it looks really tasty so far (I like the Kushan Ion frigates). (feel free to delete this post, you might not want it here)

Ok this is really good, I'm surprised.

Smaller bridge would make the ship look bigger. With bridge that bit it's like a destroyer (and I know it really is almost a HW2 destroyer sized ship, but it's still not the look you would want).
And I really wouldn't place the smaller pannel of windows to the front, that whole part is a massive weapon system, windows make it look fragile.

And if I may suggest one thing, plese focus only at just one or two races at the beginning, the growth isn't diluted into a load of different things, so it's easirer observable, faster and therefore way better for self-motivation.

(and once again, texturing, it's really hard to find someone in the HW community who enjoys texturing).

There's always the issue of bringing it to life. I've got three races in my own mod from someone else and all of them require a smaller or quite larger portion of bringing to life.

I see it shooting on the picture, that looks fine, so let me guess, it might be:
-NavLights
-capture and repair points
-engine glows, engine shader
-LODs, goblins, badges
-health, speed, damage ballance, ship and anti-ship values...
-ship icon

Well when I said a salvage corvette I really meant what the HW1 corvette did, to drag opponent's ships away. I thought someone was attempting to do that in WH2. I'm not sure if it worked, but I think there is actually a thread on relicnews about it.
I never said it could deploy an infiltration squad of soldiers and personnel into another vessel, I'm not that stupid, really. I didn't expect you lecturing me like I am.
But anyway in that case I wouldn't call it a salvage corvette anymore. Well I think I wouldn't, I haven't thought of that.

But you said the scripting magic doesn't work, so I'm guessing it's not possible in HW2. If I did a mistake somewhere, it was only presuming that such thing is possible.

But there's another catch. I didn't try that, but it might actually be possible that salvaging and resourcing can't be separated. Again, I would have to make sure if it's really true, but in case it would turn out to be so, then you have nothing:
-no HW1 style salvaging
-no debris salvaging without asteroid drilling
-or both salvaging and resourcing together, which is so stupid that you wouldn't use that. So nothing again

Much better game model.
The ladder looking thing will have to be a separate model as a Goblin mesh. Not necessary the whole thing, but those transoms. And you can have more details in the goblin mesh layer, just separate them from the main mesh.
The antennas still don't look low poly.
But in general it's much better.
Just BTW, why would you ever make the model rotate so fast? When you want to show something, make sure it will be well seen.

I've tried that. There's one thing I've realised as soon as I started and that's the size range. The largest lego ships are obviously just about the three times bigger than the smallest ones. This is exact, but to me it doesn't exactly work. But I don't know how to solve it or if it even is a problem.
I would scale down the small ones and scale up the large ones about 25%, so they are not in 1:1 scale to each other. I don't think it would be noticeable and it might help. At the same time I would attempt to design my own ships which are a lot bigger than now and I would reclasify the old cruisers to frigates. Like this thing: Brickshelf.com and that I would call a cruiser. And something in between this and the largest ship you have would be a destroyer.
I would also make some lego asteroids: Farm4.static.flickr.com and I would finally make every resources and salvages and damage sprays made out of lego.
That's what I would do anyway. Maybe your plan is different but I think all of that would help.

I just said my oppinion, it's all up to you people how you'll do it. And ok, if you don't want some extra goblin mesh around the nozzels (or slightly extruded nozzles), you should surely make it at least on the destroyers. But I think that it should be here, all other frigates in HW2 have smaller engine area compared to the body, the Taiidan engines are big and completelly flat. It would take only few minutes anyway. Only reason why I wouldn't use it is if it would cast some ugly shadows and ruin the engines that way.
But I still don't like the star shape, please try at least 16-pointed star, not just 8-pointed one. How would it look like.

I agree that the nose isn't right. And judging by the previous picture where the ship is divided into pieces I'm guessing that only the middle part will stay? Whatever it's going to be, I want to say that I don't like the bridge. The HW1 frigates had no windows whatsoever and it's not on the concepts either, so if the bridge is going to be in question and if I would have any influence over it, I would vote against it. I don't know if I'm generally against it or I just don't like this particullar realisation, but this one just don't work for me. Maybe some other might, but proably not.

Also the textures are indeed great, I certainly appretiate the work put into it. My only complain is that it looks a little bit too much cartoony, I think it need a touch of a realistic style. WH2 textures are somehow not that clean, you should probably give it some unrecognizable dirt and shades (note that all the HW2 ships have a darker belly).
Also the badge texture seems to have just about 10% more red (team color?) than I think it should have.

I don't remember, sorry for that, but it's a HW2 mod and that's why I think it should use the HW2 color coding: yellow for strikecraft and orange for frigates and bigger. If it's not like in HW1, no one will notice (and they may not even remember, like me), but everyone will notice the color if it differs from the HW2 style.

In the video description, which I made before the pictures but uploaded just now, I said it's not the subsystem animation. It's the simpiest trick ever and it's exactly what I was talking about when I said I want to show it to you.
You're modder, but I'll explain it to everyone, so it will be much longer than you need:

The animation is in the ship, the "shield arm" is resting in the middle of the destroyer. Since the Defense Field module activates the defense field ability, you can't run the animation without the module. But when you do have the module, you press the T key and the shield arm pops up from inside of the middle of the ship to the exact same place of the module shield arm and opens. After it closes again it returns back to the middle of the ship.
I've planned this method when I was thinking about the missile silo animation, so I'm pretty sure it will work with weapons as well.

It's so simple trick that I thought you would already know.

They split out in the moment they get in range with target and engage. (There I had a problem with corvettes for example, because the diameter of a large squadron was bigger than their weapon range. The result was that they were unable to attack big capital ship, they just stayed in a formation and get stuck almost in range to fire at the ship, but not quite so they couldn't split up and just stayed there).
But that was simply solved by adjusting formation spacing.

So to answer your question, how does it work in combat? Surprisingly very well. They split into 8 little deltas of 5 interceptors like they've never been in a large formation. Only problem is that even they have agressive formation (pretty nice large claw made of 8 small claw formations), they still split into deltas. It looks like an engine limitation, but not a big problem though.

I did change it in the 5min time, because it went just way too complicated and after a while I also realized that it was very off topic. But if you want, the original text (feel free to delete it) was:

"In this case it's not better because it's closer to the original. It is closer, but that's not the reason why it's better.
Maybe I'm contradicting myself, because you could say that the original Kadeshi "faces" were better designed and this why I cannot simply say that the similarity with the original doesn't mean anything, But I would definitely vote for it even if I didn't know what "Kadeshi" means.

Ok, I should find the easier way to say what I have on mind:
You don't necessary have to keep it close to original just because it happened to look nicer when you did. Only thing you should do is to make them the angrier faces, make them sleek and round and keep some key design elements and then it could look anyhow.

(in moments like this I don't really think I'm making any sense to other people)"

I was talking about the top side of the original BC.
And yes, you're right about those two being too close together.
But: The pulse cannon is angled down behind the muzzles and going further through the ship copying the side line in the middle. And even if it wouldn't, the missile launcher on the original BC don't need that much space anyway.

Why Missile BC couldn't have front pulse cannon? But if you really need to find something wrong here, take it as a bad name. None of what you can say won't change it, this shape is final.
(BTW, compare to the other BC, on top of it right here in this video, you can see a straight line longer than on mine)

Longer description:
I'm very satisfied with the hull shape, this is my favorite ship and therefore I'm basically very unwilling to change anything about it. The straight line of the bottom of the hull is the purpose, the Pulse cannons were on my original sketch and I liked them. Unfortunately for you it's all exactly as I want it to be.
There were a bunch of people trying to convince me about different shapes and other things, but unsuccessfully. Not this time, not with this ship. This one stays exactly as it is.

The design of the torpedo battery is made to look military, which I presumed that won't be a problem since the destroyer shape is based on something like WWI battleship. I also really like the way it looks from profile: Img89.imageshack.us
The true is, that it's a never before seen shape in the Hiigaran navy. But I still believe it's fitting and I was about to create more launchers like this, which would make them a little more common.

I only follow what is already set:

You can nottice that the diagonal grey stripe is on all the Vaygr ship with a docking bay (carrier, MS, even BC), so I just follow the same code.

The laser ships don't have the red paint on the hull, only on the weapons itself, but we have no laser frigate in a game, only corvette and the corvette have the external weapons. So I've decided for the red nose (or just where the weapons will be), instead of the red stripe in the middle of the missile frigates and corvettes, and instead the grey stripe on the nose of the assault (kinetic) frigate.

So the same coding will apply for the next laser frigate, there will be red somewhere, most likely on the nose, because there the weapons are.

There is a nice set of rules and design symbols in the Homeworld 2, which helps me to keep the consistency. And I actually like to keep this rules, combining them is like a lego and you can build the truly Vaygr or Hiigaran ship, if you know them or if you pay attention and study what makes ships Vaygr or Hiigaran. This way you can even create something completelly different (Good example is the Vaygr Comm station), but if you use the given set of symbols and shapes, colors, you'll make the ship fit into the race. And in the real life there is a lot of variety, so something different but fitting make it even more believable.

Pouk Feb 26 2010, 7:15am replied:

I just follow all the Homeworld facts, no matter how illogical they are, so if antennas acts like sensors, they'll be sensors everywhere else.

There is still one possibility: to remove bottom pair of lasers.

But I have no problem with all those things fitting into this limited room, because there was a hangar before, an empty space and the sensors. Now there are lasers instead of the empty hangar plus the sensors.

Only thing, and probably the one you are talking about, is that those two things are too close together, that damage of one can be damage of the other, overheating problems etc. But remember there is no room for this in any other part of the frigate, Vaygr had to place it to the front, because they've already had to sacrifice a lot of space by making a hangar in the middle of the ship.

I've decided not to. The turret construction is pretty fast, so if you see the swarm of bombers comming at you, there's nothing easier than build one or two flaks and problem is solved.

The capital flak artillery is still in progress, so it sounds like flak. But it's all going to change, it's going to sound and look nice. (Maybe not in the next release which will be there very soon, but eventually. But don't worry, I don't leave the unfinished work in my mod.)

Pouk Feb 16 2010, 5:12am replied:

It will be called just the artillery and HE artillery, I'm still not really decided. But it's basically the normal kinetic weapon with longer range. I've said sabot and HE, because those are the types of tank ammunition and I thought people will recognize it easier that way (sabot =sub-caliber round, HE = high explosive).
HE in this case is practically the anti-capital ship flak. Right now, the effect actually looks the same way like flak, except much bigger and it can't target strikecrafts. But I'm planning to change the effect for explosion, so it will look more like an anti-submarine weapon -random explosions around the ships, not flak smokes.
(so it's the long range triple barrelled kinetic weapon and even longer range triple barrelled anti-capital flak)

And yes, it is completely unarmed. It used to have the default torpedo launchers, but now when people can select even this weapon, it has nothing at the start. I have to think about the point defence, if it's not too much.

Hi. I had it the other way around. I'm not really a modder, I'm more a 3D animator than modder. I've studied an industrial design on the secondary school, started do be interrested in 3D graphics very soon and now I study animation. And then later I've realised that I have pretty much all the skills I need for modding. But I'm not supposed to make mods, I should do other much more useful things, modding is just my hobby, so I'm not really sure what should I tell you.

But tell me what exactly do you want to do? Modelling? Coding? My advice is not to show your progress on the modding forums, but on the forums about 3D graphics etc, you'll learn more that way.

Looking at the Gearbox gameplay video, "Remastering" this mod is gonna be a lot of work...
Different aproach though. Will start from the ground up, quality over quantity, more pure, without some of the experimental side projects, only the ships and features that really made sense will make the transsition. Don't expect a Triple Laser Corvette or Vaygr Support Frigate to make it...
No Kadeshi, no localisation, no explosion damage (AI don't get it anyway).
Ally races? I suppose not, or not yet. To make something meaningful it's going to have to be Hiigaran and Vaygr only.

I think the simple start is to convert the Hiigaran Supercarrier, Vaygr Missile battlecruiser, Hiigaran Modular Destroyer, Vaygr Artillery Frigate and Hiigaran Cloak Fighter and start with it. Release just that in the HD graphics as soon as it's done. And start from there.

I have no idea what Steam Workshop practically is... But soon enough I'll know it through and through.
