I want it now!!! [;)]




Kid -> RE: [WIP] Star Trek - Federation Ship & Base set (4/9/2010 7:29:19 PM)

Very nice! I don't normally use mods but I'll make an exception for this one.




FerretStyle -> RE: [WIP] Star Trek - Federation Ship & Base set (4/9/2010 8:34:23 PM)

Looks awesome.

Just one gripe, those shadows don't look right... I mean there is no actual shadowing in game so it seems out of place.




Elrohir525 -> RE: [WIP] Star Trek - Federation Ship & Base set (4/9/2010 8:55:19 PM)

Beautiful work, Conflictx!  I can't wait for your Mod to be released!  [:)]




D.W.O.H -> RE: [WIP] Star Trek - Federation Ship & Base set (4/9/2010 9:11:02 PM)

Very very Nice

So when you say your doing a mod does that mean like your gonna make all the neat star trek races out their & their ships 2?




Resan -> RE: [WIP] Star Trek - Federation Ship & Base set (4/9/2010 11:15:28 PM)

Look great, and I will absolutely use it.

Small nitpick/question... Are the Space Ports canon?
Can't remember seeing them before. A "mushroom" base would, at least to my mind, feel more right




Nabobalis -> RE: [WIP] Star Trek - Federation Ship & Base set (4/9/2010 11:57:56 PM)

Can you combine both your mods?




Igard -> RE: [WIP] Star Trek - Federation Ship & Base set (4/10/2010 12:16:29 AM)

Look like great quality images! Couple of problems I have though;

Using the nx-01 enterprise as a cruiser doesn't seem right. Keep the ships in the same timeline or give a range of different timeline ships. ie Kirks Enterprise as a destroyer, Picards stargazer as a frigate etc.

I can see the engines are located at the ends of the warp nacelles. I think it would look best if the engines were placed at the location of the impulse engines (none at all would be best but I don't know if that's possible). Usually the impulse engines are located at the rear of the saucer section on most federation designs.

Hope I don't sound too critical. Really appreciate the time and effort that you modders put into these and this some great stuff.[:)]




Magpius -> RE: [WIP] Star Trek - Federation Ship & Base set (4/10/2010 4:08:55 AM)

I don't have a problem with the shadows, it gives the ships a nice sense of solidity.
Try putting some drop shadow under the  bases, it helps them feel like they are orbiting planets, increases the sense of depth.
-good work.
looking forward to running this set!




swatter555 -> RE: [WIP] Star Trek - Federation Ship & Base set (4/10/2010 4:40:51 AM)

Wow, ships that don't resemble a phallus. Im sold!

Seriously though, nice work.

This could be indeed the mod that can decide me to buy the game [:'(]

The Large, Medium and small spaceports are from Star Trek: Enterprise - "The Expanse". Their just different views from the same station. The Gas and mining stations are from the Midas array. Resort base is a modified Jupiter station. I might change some of the stations to see if others fit the job better, but it looks nice ingame as is.

I could put them there and see how it looks in game, or I might release a modified version for the people who don't want the engine effect. It might look a bit plain in game though, I could try changing the engine effects to something else and see how that goes.

Version 1 will just be U.F.P. and Starfleet ships & bases, as it progresses I will add more races.

Yes that perfectly possible, I'm going to release this as a Customization Theme. So you'll have to copy the BSG ships into a race that hasnt been used yet for the Star Trek theme.




Resan -> RE: [WIP] Star Trek - Federation Ship & Base set (4/10/2010 1:02:16 PM)

It was the Large, Medium and small spaceports I was thinking off. That their from Enterpise explains that. Haven't watched that so much. The rest of the spacestations look familiar.

If you prefer them, then np, it's your mod [8D]

I vote for the "engines located at the rear of the saucer section" too. The nacelles are only for warp. At least change color to blue if possible.




shinobu -> RE: [WIP] Star Trek - Federation Ship & Base set (4/10/2010 6:37:53 PM)

Conflictx: Fantastic job! I will definitely download this fine work and enjoy playing with these ships. Thanks so much...




Conflictx -> RE: [WIP] Star Trek - Federation Ship & Base set (4/11/2010 12:48:42 PM)

V1.0 of mod released have fun guys, if you have any comments or found any bugs, do tell.




vils -> RE: [WIP] Star Trek - Federation Ship & Base set (4/11/2010 12:52:57 PM)

Very nice!

DLing!

...or not.. no DL link yet




Conflictx -> RE: [WIP] Star Trek - Federation Ship & Base set (4/11/2010 12:56:18 PM)

It's still uploading, patience. :p

Edit: uploaded




Gary Childress -> RE: [WIP] Star Trek - Federation Ship & Base set (4/11/2010 2:56:56 PM)

FYI: I just went to the web site and DL'd your Star Trek pack. Thank you for an excellent pack. Definitely first rate stuff. However, when I went to the website you are using to upload the stuff I got a scareware attack. I don't know if it was from the website or not. Has anyone else had this happen? [&:]




Conflictx -> RE: [WIP] Star Trek - Federation Ship & Base set (4/11/2010 3:01:06 PM)

What was the message you got? Was it when you entered the site or when downloading the package?




Gary Childress -> RE: [WIP] Star Trek - Federation Ship & Base set (4/11/2010 3:12:27 PM)

I don't remember the exact message. I closed out of the message almost as soon as it popped up. It was something like the usual "Your computer may contain viruses" and then it asked me if I wanted to scan the computer. I clicked "Cancel" but it proceeded to do a mock scan anyway. It happened about the time I started to DL the pack. I know sometimes legitimate websites get adware that on them that attacks your computer. I was having the same problem with CivFanatics website for a while. It's a perfectly legit website but one of its advertisers loaded scareware, probably without anyone realizing it.




Gary Childress -> RE: [WIP] Star Trek - Federation Ship & Base set (4/11/2010 3:45:06 PM)

Here's a pop up which was behind some of my other screens. Definitely a scareware attack. Whether or not it was caused by this website may be a little hard to determine unless someone else gets the same message. [:(]

May I suggest chopping your file in half so that you can upload it here on the Matrix forums? It is probably the best ship graphic set I've seen so far.

I'll give it a try. If anyone else gets that message I'll also remove the link, but I repeatedly refreshed the download link, and clicked the download several times without getting a message.

Shadows in SPACE never look right, anyway. The reason being that space is alternatively really bright, and really dark, with little in between. When it is really bright, without any atmosphere to diffuse the light, you get really harsh shadows because the light only comes from select directions: Either the headlights on your spacesuit, or nearest bright objects. When it is really dark, you can't see a thing. So what you'd see if shadowing in SPACE is really bright hilights and really dark darkness. There's no diffuse lighting like on Earth.




D.W.O.H -> RE: [WIP] Star Trek - Federation Ship & Base set (4/11/2010 10:05:25 PM)

i got that scareware too

D.W.O.H -> RE: [WIP] Star Trek - Federation Ship & Base set (4/11/2010 10:12:29 PM)

I downloaded it & wheres all the star trek ships?

I see the audio & effects but in the units folder i dont see anything star trek related?




Nabobalis -> RE: [WIP] Star Trek - Federation Ship & Base set (4/11/2010 10:13:19 PM)

I didn't get that.

But for some reason, the race is still called Human and the race details are not correct but I have the UFP flag.




D.W.O.H -> RE: [WIP] Star Trek - Federation Ship & Base set (4/11/2010 10:14:25 PM)

nevermind I had a retarded moment their




swatter555 -> RE: [WIP] Star Trek - Federation Ship & Base set (4/12/2010 5:08:54 AM)

DLing them now, great work!
