Here's a sneak at what were doing, the old Hw1 ships in full Hw2 graphics, not just putting them ingame, but giving them enhanced textures and 3d details.
For now the scout remastered...
Just unrar it to the data folder
Interesting you guys should establish contact with the devs of Homeworld Universe mod... They already have enhanced models of the Taiidan faction and are currently working on the textures there as well. I'm sure you people could support each other there and benefit from each other as they always shared their stuff and took stuff from other mods as well
(With permission and cooperation by the different mod teams of course.)
I know of it but I'm not very interested, but who knows, maybe some day...
I've played HWU, their models are of no where near the same quality as REMASTERED. Jkberna, you and your team (but from what I've read, you seem to be the main artist) are doing an amazing job. Keep plugging away and you'll get there eventually.
Thanks so much for keeping Homweworld alive.
PS, I've just noticed OP is from almost 12 months ago, and HWU still haven't improved their textures or models for the base factions.
I am starting dealing with mods, will be a long road. I've installed relic's mod packager and tried it out with the mods I got without BIG files.
I successfully made a big file for PDS and 2 more. However, your HW1 Scout I had some progress but failed since I haven't arrived to the LUA files yet, apparently. I made 4 runs and in the third one I could make this scout sample appears ingame. I had to put your deathmatch folder inside an absent multiplayer folder. Almost everything appeared ingame - Kharak,the megalith with the MS and Vaygr - except the scout above
I've tried to change the name of the folder DATASCOUT to DATA, but I sense that I have to do something more.
Temporary for consult:
Ok, I've done it. I don't know what JK did, but it seems to be another file now. Probably I had made a confusion also.
You can get the SCOUT in a *.BIG file here:
The previous link will be empty, disregard it.
I don't know what weapons it is using but I can only guess it's from the stock HW2 scout. I'll see it later.
JK, note that I've used your second shipicon ...
It does not work?!?! Which side is it for?
btw, the level of details are real cool ...
