The runway doesn't show up in RotS, too blurry
I guess we have to wait to see if Legends new rendering engine can handle things like this.
Thanks for kind comments Igard and ehsumrell
Sorry for not responding to your question immediately, I had to think about it for a bit because I'm (probably unhealthily) obsessed when it comes to art assets with what Kal and I previously referred to as "everything looking like it has come out of the same box". For this mod I would like to take sole responsibility for creating the ship artwork, please read on and please don't be mad at me
I really love that many people want to be involved with the mod, it is what I was hoping for, and am loving Kals characters and looking forward to somebody (preferably not Kal as he has a big job already) taking on the job of converting most of DW weaponry and shielding away from energy based weapons into conventional weapons, also someone having a go at new flags of course (which can now be included in modding folder).
Furthermore, there will only be one set of ships in Andromeda Project. This probably sounds a bit crazy, with every race now being allowed its own shipset (actually thats been possible since RotS), but let me explain: The set will be bigger than 26 (somewhere between 40 & 60 most likely) and spread across the races. For example, the Slaver faction are the inhabitants of the prison world, a whole planets worth of escaped convicts. The ships they use will be logical to them: Freighters the same as Terran, these are the supply ships to the prison world, they don't need a special design. Military ships: heck no, they don't have access to Terran military hardware, they may have Escorts as probably some were stored on the planet to escort incoming and outgoing prison transports, but the rest will be prison ships, converted to another purpose with added weaponry of course, but they are still part of the same "set", the Terran Empire set. Mechanoids may be an exception to this rule and have their own set, but of course they were designed by the Terran so they won't be too different.
We can discuss this more in future, once the Terran design is down (I don't like the above anymore), there may be opportunity to make Mechan ships. More news later!
