Alot better, but I would like to keep my screen nice and clean, so I'm not going to do that! :p

Well thankfully, modders can take care of it so you don't have to risk the cleanliness of your monitor! I'm glad you like it :)

Can't wait to see what you can do to the larger ships. Amazing texture, that really stood out for me.

I keep being amazed by the sheer quality of the mod's progress, and to think its all done to such an "old" school game, well it makes me even more pleased. I just wish that once we get the final produc we could see the game in all its glorious details, but alas the fighters are so small compared to the size of cap ships.

Which begs the next question, can we "soonish" see some of those as well? No rushing needed take youre time and enjoy what you do, but it would be nice to see some cap's soon aswell.

I know I've been doing a lot of fighters lately... I've been drawing up concept art for some Mandalorian ships though so don't worry, I've got capital ships in the works too.

in the new update are you gonna have the canon 12 fighters per squadron?

the_Farseer Jun 25 2013, 12:20pm replied:

No. The reason being that squadrons that large are clumsy in this game. Further, because of the detail I'm adding to each unit, the amount of fighters on screen needs to be limited to no more than it's already at.

Thank you :)

My model is about twice the poly count and has normal mapping but still... Even accounting for the advances in computer technology since the release of the game, you have to wonder why this game had such bad graphics when it came out. It's obviously capable of SO MUCH more.

Only twice the count? Seriously you have some mad skill there. I wsih I had half that talent, all I know about 3D modeling is from the days I played with clay-do :D

Haha thanks. Yeah, the original model is around 1000 triangles...a little less I think. Mine floats around 2000, though I don't remember the exact number. In fact, the original model and mine are actually quite similar (the main difference or enhancement being in the engines). The part that makes almost all of the difference is the texture and the use of the normal map material (material is a combination of shader and texture maps). The original model (as with most original EaW models) only uses the gloss material...so a base texture with a specular map.

Hope all of that made some sense...

Oh and PS: the same thing applies to my A and Y-wing models as well. The model itself is quite similar to the original with a few changes...the main difference is in the texture and added normal maps.

...Yep. You made my favorite fighter even better looking.

But now I really wish I had a comp capable of shaders for this game. The model just doesn't get the justice it deserves without shaders.

Will more of the Jedi (like Luke) also be a functional space hero (rather than the X-Wing basically be Luke's unique transport)?

And, on a serious side note, is it possible to have different colored astromechs (maybe for hero units)?

The x-wings in the mod now (as of v4) have different colored astromechs ;) Take a close look next time you play. Each x-wing has unique squadron tallies painted on the wings as well (1 through 5).

As for Luke and other heroes... They were given their specific transports in GC because those are the ships they most commonly pilot in the the books and comics.

I see. I shall have to take a look then.

So, Jedi with fighters will not be functional space heroes?

I guess I don't know what you mean by functional. Not each hero will be set up with their own capital ship, if that's what you mean.

Ah. Well, what I mean is will they have working powers in space?

Han Solo and Chewie, for example, are both functional ground heroes and functional space heroes.

Clearly, I need to make my queries clearer...

Amazing but can you have a squardron of X-Wings all have one color. So that way you can see how many are left in that one speficic one so that way u wouldnt have to zoom in all the way and great job. I cant believe ur doing all this much work when u have so much bad luck. You have my blessing sir, May the Force be with.

What do you mean? As in, each squadron is a different color? That isn't possible in this game.

Description

I think this one speaks for itself... I mean, you could crap on your screen and it would be better than the original game model... Complete with animations and all the things it should have. Enjoy.
