Truthfully, while it was fun at its time, I'm not sure it's worth continuing before we get a definite core-team decision and announcement of ongoing (not 'future') plans for the graphical engine.

Hell, what if they decide to use vector graphics? then everything so far was a waste.

Though I'm quite sure the most probable scenario is nothing will be changed.

I'm writing a game very similar to the SC melee. I've *thought* about maybe either making the game modable so people can do a graphically enhanced melee or maybe just doing a stripped down version of my game for a SC Melee clone with better graphics. I don't know if people are too interested in that or not though.

I do remember seeing a project somewheres to make TUQM/SC2 3D ... maybe you could steal, er "liberate" that code, and hack out some 3D models?

It died rather quickly when I got a job.  All I really had anyway was a few ships in VegaStrike based on some SC models that were used to make the TW sprites, and others from the SC3D site.

Hmm.  It wouldnt be too hard to steal the VegaStrike engine - the problem with that lies in the fact that it does not currently support any form of 3rd-Person Camera.

I have a lot of experience with VS, though, I work (albeit sporadically) on the Wing Commander Universe mod.

Hmmm, is that a result of the ogre port?  The VS I remember from a couple years ago had multiple 3rd person camera modes.

Still does, as of the latest build (non-cvs.) Chase, target, and something that I think looks at your ship from the system origin (center of the sun.)

I think they said they wouldn't make the port to ogre until the build after the pending one.

Oh it is, I'm using the very latest CVS version since I develop for it Smiley  The old stable version should have it in the old iteration of the code.

Hey, those are pretty neat. There are still some blurry edges on your ships though. You should try one of three things:

1. make larger pixel art versions so you still have those crisp edges
2. make them with a vector program so everything is smooth and neat and they can be scaled to any size
3. make them in 3d and do prerendered ships (like SC3). Though something is obviously lost in this approach

A couple years back I made some large pixel art versions of the ships. Check them out:

Yes it is actually.  Cheesy

It's a nice graphic.  I hope you don't mind me using it...  Grin
I'm also using coeray's dreadnought pic on another forum.  I hope he doesn't mind either; they're all nice images.
