thanks for reanimating this thread. I have something with dreadnoughts to complaing about. If the shell hits directly it mostly just explodes, not dealing any load of thermo damage. Just a tiny explosion ... if the projectile is fired slightly aside, proximity explosion deals much more (thermo) dam...

Re: Opening Codes, Ending Codes

In using mods and creating mods, I keep receiving the same error messages: cannot parse; content expected on line; and closing tag does not match opening tag. What is a tag, and how in the worlds do I correct these errors? Help me out guys (or ladies since we do not really know who is behind the us...

Speaking of 3D stuffs, what camera and lighting settings should I use for ships for rendering them to be used in transcendence? ... To position the camera and the lights, imagine that the object is at the origin: The camera is 6 units away and 12 units above the object. The light source is 3 units ...

picked up bryce.. currently learning it. I am curious (because I can't find any information on it).. is there a way (hot key/key command) to get bryce to show the models in solids, rather than wire frame (other than rendering it)? You supposedly have to be using OpenGL video drivers; but my directX...

Blender would a good app. It can do everything that you need in one app; except maybe you might find painting textures easier with a 2d editor. It is free, and has quite a few free sophisticated GI renderers that integrate well with it, if you find it's default scanline renderer to be inadequate.: ...

Truespace - link to Caligari homepage Bryce 5.5 - don't leave home without it. Bryce has a very nice DTE (Deep Texture Editor) and comes with quite a few presets. Like 25 or 30 types of noises that can be blended in various ways to make a huge variety of textures. Wings 3d - quick, easy poly sub-d ...

There was talk a while back about a mercenary guild, http://neurohack.com/transcendence/forums/viewtopic.php?t=246 , something like that could go either way, i think. There was some pretty good ideas in that thread... I always thought that mercena...

...What are the advantages of using Wings 3d? It is a small app, polygon modeling only, meaning that there isn't much to learn with it. It has a pretty simplistic (programmable) hot key arrangement that is quick and easy to memorize. It has some very handy tools for quick polygon modeling too. It h...

I use 3ds max for my modelling/rendering... I use Max too; still use Max 8, I haven't felt comfortable w/ upgrading, especially since the app has apparently been split up into at least 2 specialty areas. Render w/ mentalray. Sometimes I find it easier (and quicker) to make .obj meshes w/ Wings3d to...
