Game Assets / Re: Looking for new sounds
« on: February 05, 2011, 02:55:21 »
not off hand. Most (free) sounds aren't that great. Best thing would be to record sounds yourself, if you have a DAT recorder and mic. Then mix them up in a software app like Audition.

Yeah, I've been giving Galaxy crap about stuff like this for a while now. He doesn't even have a design doc for our BSG mod  >:(

Game Assets / Re: Object animations in Layout
« on: February 02, 2011, 04:00:20 »
Hmm. Do the #def# animations automatically play no matter what? I wonder if it would be possible to initialize it's animation right when the mission loads. Maybe it would start up instantly? I don't see why it works (as I think it should) in the model viewer, but not the game itself. Rather frustrating (chalk up another one! :P).

Yeah, as soon as I click play. Shuts down the launcher tries to launch Nexus and a Application error pops up with "Failed to find Steam" :(

Strange, considering it found the game, config options and all of that. Nice little package though, can't wait until it's all working :D

Oh, nice :)

I have found one issue so far - doesn't work if you bought Nexus through Steam. Says that Steam cannot be found.

This is really fantastic, Arparso! I'll try to come up with any critiques later on :)

We'll add the modinfo.xml to Nexus BSG in our next release, so you don't have to clutter up your code with our info once it's out :D

Damn, just one more limitation! hah. Thanks for looking that up, Arparso. :)

Nah, the animation plays fine in Lightwave. There's no slow down or speeding up. It's one constant smooth motion. But when I load the model in the game, it automatically starts the animation and when it does, it starts slow then ramps up to full speed and then plays forever. I do not want that ramp-up. It doesn't exist in the animation and it shouldn't be there in the game.

If I load the model in the model viewer there's no animation. If I press "1" to enable the first animation, it starts at fullspeed like I want - no ramp up time.

I don't know why it's giving the animation that ramp-up when loading it in the game or editor.

Game Assets / Object animations in Layout
« on: February 01, 2011, 06:16:14 »
Hey guys, had a quick question about animations in Layout. I got everything animated and it compiles and plays in the game. The problem I'm having though is that the animation looks like it's on a spline ramp instead of being linear. So when it starts, it starts slow then winds up faster and faster. This is not the behavior I want. It should have a constant speed.

I've gone into Layout's graph editor and set the animation keys to repeat in the pre/post behavior and also set the keys from TCBSpline to Linear. But this doesn't seem to help it at all in game.

Any ideas?

Yeah, Arparso's Freespace is looking fantastic. Stargate is also really great.

And welcome back!

Looking really fantastic there, Arparso. The progress you've been making is insane.

Game Assets / Re: Help with turrets needed
« on: January 08, 2011, 18:57:44 »
Yeah I think Arparso already covered it pretty well. The engine definitely has some annoying limitations for sure. We'd love to have recoil animations and dual barrel flashes.

I tried making an effect like Arparso suggested, were it has 2 flashes in the texture, but it really only looks decent from a certain range or angle - I wouldn't use it as a real solution :(

Perhaps, but that's well beyond my knowledge to do, or anyone else on our team, for that matter. For the time being at least, I'll just be going with the multiple-cannon offset approach.

The only thing I dislike about this is what if you decide to manually fire the guns, the slower guns are always going to be that much slower, which is kind of silly. But I guess that's just one more limitation of Nexus :P

Scripting / Staggering weapon firing
« on: August 21, 2010, 20:15:16 »
Hey all, just wondering if it's possible to make different kinds of firing solutions on weapons. So lets say a ship has 8 turrets of one weapon type and you choose "destroy hull" - right now they all fire at the exact same time. Is there a way to change that, or create a new weapon function button, that staggers the firing, so there's like a quarter second delay between each weapon firing?

Modo is made by ex-Newtek staff. It supports LWO natively. For animations, I'll have to use Lightwave :(
But right now I do all modeling and texturing in 3dsmax, then I export to OBJ and import that into Modo to setup hardpoints and things like that. Then Modo saves out the LWO format for the compiler :)

It's been a very long time since I used Ligthwave, but I remember just taking screen-caps of the UV window and resizing as needed. Not a great solution, but it does work.

I've become too pampered by 3dsmax and Modo :P

Yeah, but you can always fill up the remaining invisible slots with automatic weapons, so it's not that big of a problem.

Well, that doesn't help our case :P
We need as many slots as possible to be visible. The more railguns the better, but we do need that siege slot to be visible. Maybe there's a way to alter the GUI containers. I'll have to look into that.

Confirmed, this works brilliantly :)

Thanks Dreamor!

**edit

There is one issue though. The UI doesn't seem to expand to accommodate the new slots. So when I added the 4 new railgun slots to Galactica, the siege slot for the nuke launcher disappeared, haha. The weapon box just has railguns in it :

That's awesome, Dreamor! I'll have to give this a shot as well :)

Thanks.

Yeah, swapping only what you don't use (and the fact that it doesn't have to be in order) is awesome news indeed. that's like 3-4 more turrets we can add to our ships now.
I'll have to give this a shot for sure. :)

Thanks Dreamor!

it's a cool ability, but it's so limiting. If you remove the siege weapon, you can't use siege weapons whatsoever, on ANY ships. I dislike that greatly.

I wish we could just add more weapons without removing others. :(
We require siege weapons on some vessels, so this can't work at all for us on BSG.

ahhhh yes, I was using the normal 7 key. Numpad 7 worked just fine :)

Thanks a lot, Arparso!
