Try to imagine Makaan saying, 'You forgot late charges. That brings it up to …ugh… a MILLION space bucks." I can’t do it. I still hear Pizza the Hut.
That is very true - the maps look freaking fantastic! From the looks, Ice Moon is my favorite. I might mooch it for a map too. I’m kind of into maps with 8 players. Totally generous to let other people use it, man. Very cool!
They’re totally fun. I’ve been playing Ice Moon against 3 separate CPUs in Goliath. It’s super hard =D you can’t get a front going for crap and as soon as you start beating somebody up, you get attacked from somebody else, but it’s like that for everybody so the game goes on forever. AND it looks killer.
I just got a new computer and it handles the background better too. I had a weird effect on my old computer, where if you turned the camera fast, there was a black outline of the ship in focus as the moon was being redrawn. I didn’t look bad, just weird sometimes. Maybe the new computer will handle the problems I was having with the effects being dropped too. (with the shields) Even if, I guess we have to think about people with old computers when laying out mods.
I think I’m really gonna mooch this background for something. Might change the way the moon and the background looks, but I’m probably gonna start with your stuff, cuz i have no idea how you did it. haha
I might be interested in using it for one of my campaign’s missions that involves landing troops on moon-based shipyards. The source files would definitely interest me as there’s a couple of background elements I might try to add to the scene. Thanks!
The idea is to create a very dark map to show off the ships’ lighting (glow maps). It could also make combat a bit more fun with the tactical overlay turned off, because you cannot see enemy ships lurking in wait…
Right now the background itself seems a bit low quality (some odd banding going on) and I think the planet itself is too bright, but it is coming together. The planet textures are based on NASA imaging of the asteroid Ceres.
