Title: movie 3
Post by: Slylendro on November 22, 2005, 11:16:22 am
hello everyone, I'm recruiting to the army in exactly 1 week, I rendered quite alot of scenes during the last 1-2 years. It's a waste to throw them away, so I made the rendered stuff into one movie called "The fall of the alliance".
I still have some rendered scenes for movies which I may attach soon, but I'm not sure I'll make it in time.
I hope you have a fast computer it's high resolution 720x480.
In any event it's been fun all these years, and have great a life. ::)

Wow! man that's nice :D (Enjoyed the Androsynth bit  ;D)

The things I would say that need work are...

Ur-Quan explosions, it looks kinda weird.
Mycon + Yehat models, they look a bit.. dodgy (I think the Syreen one is a bit dodgy too).
Have the Vux make lots of limpets in battle as well as their Gigawatt Laser.
May want to change the music, I like C&C but this kind of fight should have something to really blast your ears off, or something very sombre, like the Sergeant music when he gets killed from Platoon.
Add more Shofixti! :) Kyaiiiie! (Also note that Hayes said that Shofixti kept the alliance running even during the hardest times, so there should be loads of Shofix.. ;))
Oh yes include lots of sound effects :)

Oh and by the way, the song is good, but when it comes to the rock and roll bit, that's where the Ilwrath comes out. Personally I think that bit should be the Ilwrath bit, with that music of some Ilwrath frying more Arilou, some Syreen, Even a Chenjesu? But that's just my take on it ;)

Good luck in the army!

That was awesome.  I especially liked the Androsynth smashing all the hunams...

Blow up an Ur-Quan for me.

See you in a while then, and thank you very much for posting the video.....

Enjoy!,

I don't think they advance that quickly in the Israeli Defence Forces. ;)

Well, his army rank is already higher than mine.

(Civilian, luckily.)

Wow, that is amazing. I love the shots of the VUX espcially.
Really great work on making the 2D of UQM look more realistic.

Well, compared to the US army we actually do get promoted relatively quickly.
You can get to be a Sergeant as soon as one and a half years or as late as two and a half, where in the US army Sergeants usually have white hair (as far as I know)  :D. 

Hey Sly, what's your profile?  ::)

Post by: Slylendro on November 26, 2005, 10:36:27 pm
thanks everyone, I know there should be improvments in the movie, I didn't like many things like the quan explosion,alliance ships enter, arilou getting fryied, but it's better than nothing!  =]

as for the army, I have profile 97, probably going to field intelligence or combat engeneering.
nice to see another israeli fan of SC, I knew of about 7 others which they all quitted, I'm still the youngest SC fan(besides jiffa dude of course)

2 days la manayek :P

@Censored I had no idea that you are an Israeli... I always thought that it was just me and Sly in here. Who else in this forum is from Israel?

@Sly GL in the army ya kariiiiiiish ;p

I will be recruited as well in a year or so. UQM team , start working faster ! :)

Is it true that entry to the armed forces there is manditory?

Lets see... We are surrounded by countries who want to "throw us in the ocean" and there are terrorists who try to kill us from within. Ofcourse not  ::)

An "emergency state" was declared when the country was founded some 60 years ago, by law, and it still prevails. So it is 3 years mandatory (2 years for females).

That's a long time to be in a state of emergancy. But, I suppose,
as DJ put it, being surrounded by people who would like to
throw you into the ocean would make one paranoid.

after five wars in 60 years you could say it's justified  :P

That was very cool.

Would it be possible for you to post the models you used? I can use them in the hyper melee clone I plan to write using my 2D physics engine (http://physics2d.sourceforge.net/).

Nice movie!

Could somebody please tell me where are the other ones?

All the best at the army camp for you, Slylendro, and I'm watching the movie thing now, pretty cool.


Title: Re: movie 3
Post by: Cpt. Dinkleberg on December 02, 2005, 02:56:46 pm
I don't mean to criticize, but the music is kinda awkward for a war in hyperspace... But I pretty much loved the part where the Ur-Quan Dreadnought was smashed to bits!  ;D, too bad there aren't any Chmmr Avatars, watching the lasers at work would really cream the Ur-Quan and at a little pizzazz to the movie, good work!


Title: Re: movie 3
Post by: jack_cloudy on December 02, 2005, 04:58:37 pm
Welll, there weren't any Chmmr at that time. But yeah, Ur-Quan getting swamped with lasers, crystals, nukes and all was damn cool.


Title: Re: movie 3
Post by: Cpt. Dinkleberg on December 03, 2005, 02:36:30 am
Agreed! But I don't know why the Chmmr doesn't look a bit like the Chenjesu at all, no crystaline covered parts, it looks like an upgraded Mmrnmhrm.


Title: Re: movie 3
Post by: Culture20 on December 03, 2005, 06:08:42 am
Then what's that gigantic, central, blue, clear, & shiney thing?  Looks like a big crystal to me.


Title: Re: movie 3
Post by: Elerium on December 03, 2005, 04:30:30 pm
I agree with C20.

The central crystal (terrawatt laser) is probably based on a synthesised X-Form laser cannon with a prism or something.


Title: Re: movie 3
Post by: Cpt. Dinkleberg on December 04, 2005, 01:53:26 am
I thought the blue thing in the center was the window or something... but the front blue thing does look a bit like a crystal now that u say it...


Title: Re: movie 3
Post by: Censored on December 04, 2005, 09:30:11 pm
Considering the nature of the Chmmr and Mmrmnmnmnmnmnn you'd think they don't really need windows :P

the chmmrs are living crystals and the Mmrmrmrhrmhhmhmhmhm are mechanical.. machines.

(p.s. excuse my spelling of Mmmrmnmnmenmnmnm... .. ;))
