moving on.. Cheesy

this one was pretty easy actually, and frankly it was fun doing the wings (like army camoflauge spraying), finished in record time (one hour).

still, it seems a bit empty.. I would like to add some details on the hull, such like the Shofixiti's red paws, but I can't think of anything Pkunk-related.

feedback is welcome.

imo its ok

maybe if u add some darker red, as Kit's (Michael Night) car light...Would add the illusion of being a bulb light more...
Which yep, in th edistance, can be more than just a sensor.

a question...

this sprites you are all making..Are to be resized down later ?

I mean, small/tiny details like extra thin antennas, etc, would be lost?

Well, my sprites are 500% of the original, which makes it compatible with a maximum resolution of 1600x1200 as Deus_Siddis calculated (pg 2 of the thread). I think the others are either 500% or 400%.
in any case, what you see here is what you would see when you get both ships as close as possible to each other in melee (maximum zoom), if you would play at 1600x1200.

otherwise, yes, they will be downsized.

also, the game engine is sprites-based, per zoom factor: small, medium, and big. there are 16 sprites per zoom factor.

all in all, yes, details would be lost.

Nice fury.

In the original, it looks like the wings bulge a little in the blue areas. Perhaps creating more of a similar lighting effect would give them more depth and complexity. Maybe make them just a tad brighter, as well, if this is not already done by said bulgification. Smiley

Note that UQM's current max resolution is 1024x768. 1600x1200 is the res of most 20 in. screens, and is about the max that you'd have to make anything that'll be played on a PC (at least right now.)

Here is what has not been done so far (I think) :

Androsyn
Earthling
Mrnmhrm
Spathi
Supox
Syreen
Utwig
Zoqfot
Vindicator
Sa-Matra

I'd recommend doing the Vindicator and Sa-Matra last. I'd personally like to see a Cruiser, X-Form (is that what it's called?), or Blade. I think Mark Vera requested an Eluder some pages ago. Your call. . .

I suggested a Jugger way back when this first started, so seeing one would make me happy, anyway. But the Supox and Mmrn would be cool to see, too.

Hey Clay, who did this one:




I like it! ..I like em all in fact.. Nice work by everyone involved!

That was me.  I neglected to post it because I hated it so much. ^_^;  But glad someone likes it.  I think Halleck asked for it to be posted...so you should be happy now!

Censored: The wings of the Pkunk are awesome!  The body seems a little flat...Do you mind if I tinker with it, some time?

Excellent, much better. You might want to lighten up the wings and the stuff around the red engine exhaust slits (it is hard to see those areas, especially against the black background of space.)

Good job bioslayer! It looks much cleaner. Only change I would suggest is to make those vents at the back of the pontoon things be nice and straight.

Also clay, thanks for the repost.  Wink
