3D modeler, interested in space and aeronautics, aerospace engineering student.
I know Lightwave very well and big fan of Homeworld series and Descent.
yes i know that drawing. But is no more than inspiration :). The gap between looking at that image and draw actually a texture is like doing a 80ft dive because you just saw someone doing it once and so you think:
"now yes I know how to do it"
Game market is too bound to massive approaches to allow a developer worry about making a multi-platform game. It would be expensive (at least in terms of time) and not rewarding since 99% of players in the world play on Windows. And windows technologies are far more supported by thousands of various technologies. So today, when incomes are everything for such industries, they will just not bother about linux.
About the source code, it is not useless. It is just too much complicated for one or two programmers to work on it as an hobby.
Look what a single german programmer has made with Descent source code (1994 game, full ms-dos 640x480 originally). D2x-xl plays every level with fullscreen aa, any resolutions, real time lightning, texture filtering and any other foolness you may think for such an old game.
What's the best place you know to track any trustworthy news about HW3?
nice texturing! are the authors here on moddb?
Eh che domande fai..non si può dire quanto ci vuole a imparare qualcosa. tre mesi o tre anni dipende dall'avere un minimo di attitudine e per il resto dalla tua perseveranza.
XSI Mod Tool è buono e gratuito, ed è pieno di tutorial in giro.
The Question Is: What Does Dead Mean?
Per il Source hanno usato XSI, per creare i modelli di half life 2. In realtà se sai utilizzare un software quello che impari lo puoi applicare con qualsiasi altro, dopo un pò che ti ambienti. Credo che ora ognuno usi il suo software preferito e poi converta i formati, anche se crea dei problemi perche la geometria non è l'unica informazione da convertire
ciao cosa vuoi sapere in particolare? tutto? lol
Parkour but it just sticks to the walls, even when jumping from standing still. If it is called 'System' I expect at least for it to take momentum into account
don't leave moddb gallery. It is useful to have comments for each image
This mod and its features looks stunning for me. Best work is the missile cruiser. How many people are working on this mod?
To no take this as a personal offence, but these are my impressions:
-there isn't a way to start a sp game via using the menu
-why are doors made by two, uncomfortable, pieces?
-the ladders are really bugged, it's almost impossible to enter a side door or detach when descenting from the ceiling door.
-the bg image is clearly a, ugly in-game screenshot (provided with hud and crosshair) with inverted colors
-i abandoned the game after 2 minutes because of these tricky ladders
Probabily the backside details just sucks. i can change them.
The cool aspect is that the lowpoly is made by just... 24-30 polys
it won't show...i'll try to fix it.
hell no!! thats enough fancy to be a concussion :D that's better than the gray slugs we're uset to shoot.. just keep an eye on the extremely low poly count. Ugly forced smoothings are clearly visible
