Hasn't this been done before? I'm sure it has. Did it get lost when PoNaF went down for a while?

They all look nice, but my favourite is the Traddash. It makes it look much more like a real ship rather than a delightful little rascal.

Very nice!  I couldn't say which I like most.

Give the Druuge some dark regen rate bars. They do have a special, after all.

Heh, hard for me to pick my own favorite as well... although I'm partial to Orz, Thraddash and Kohr-Ah I guess (the latter one was by far the hardest/most time-consuming to make, almost all the effort was dot-by-dot pixel-art)...

Aha!  I knew I'd made a mental note to fix something about the Druuge, just couldn't remember what - fixed now.
(The special's regen rate is a full bar because technically, if you hold down the special button, it's slightly faster than the Chmmr's even with the refire delay)

Like I said in the initial post, I did do something similar before in the form of a wallpaper, but the SC2 ships on that one were just pasted from other people's 3D renderings (with some ugly additions on top of that)... maybe I'll just make a new one with these new screens and send it to the PoNaF dudes.

The Slylandro Probe picture has some of its background nebulae cut off
see: http://mooses.nl/temp/slypiclines.jpg
Maybe a slight image bug there, but I thought I'd let you know.. Wink

Very nice! Excellent work. I especially like the attempt to make these look like the original SC1 ship spec images.
I have only one minor request - mainly it's a little pet peeve aggravated by arguing with one rather obstinate and rude person: Can we please not use the name "Terawatt Laser" for the Avatar main weapon. As far as I know, this isn't found in the canon and seems to only be based on the fact that it's twice as strong as the VUX Gigawatt laser (so then shouldn't it be called a "2-Gigawatt Laser"). There is a canon name that we could use - "Heavy X-ray Laser", from the 3DO spin video.

What, didn't you notice how the chmmr weapon does 1000 damage per frame?

I remember a discussion about this way back, either here or on the SCDB. Maybe even on the old SCDB. I think the general consenus was that "Terawatt Laser" was simply made up by the guy who made the old ship spec images that have been linked here already. I don't think it's a very big issue and "Heavy X-Ray laser" is a bit of a mouthful, but I suppose that if UQM is to be kept strictly canon Terawatt has to go. If anyone is really passionate about it, I suppose you could check with TFB and ask their opinion.

Awesome work. Couldn't have done it better myself. I want to see this in game.

I noticed that you have the Kohr-Ah stats setup like the Ur-Quan stats. Nice touch.

The other ships looks nice as well. Nice job reducing the color to 8-bit. You'd swear it came with the original game. TFB would be proud.

Yeah, fantastic work. Like others have said, it's very much in the spirit of the original images, I'd say it's spot on!

Excellent Job on the images! so good in fact, it warranted me posting on the UQMF, which pretty well never happens. Do you mind if I use the images on PNF, as part of the PNF MKII Im working on?.  Credit would be given of course.

Woah - your monitor must have some impressive gamma. Wink Thanks - fixed.

....Maybe the the VUX have a continuous-beam laser and "gigawatt" represent average power, while the Chmmr's is actually a nanosecond-pulse laser which would make "terawatt" merely the peak output? ....No?  *cricket chirps*

Well, you're both right.... though if accurate nomenclature is an issue, then an X-ray laser would technically be invisible (in addition to being a bit of a mouthful). Any nice, punchy name would do the trick, I guess.
(By the way, if it does get added to the game, then the SC1-style info display sequence could probably be controlled by a script, which would mean that the text need not be set in stone.)

Thanks, and sure! I'd be honored. Smiley

Scott - last I checked, I think the (crappy) old ones I had made were still in the PNF's "ships" section, so you could probably replace those, haha.  If you want me to send the images without the interface etc. around them, let me know.
