PNF News Flash: Resources Pages
« on: February 07, 2010, 12:42:38 pm »

For those of you who don't follow the PNF.

Hello folks,

Once again, it's time to add to our skeleton site. This time we have a slightly different set of pages for you. There's been some discussion in the community about the scarcity of art resources. I mean, there are a lot of clever programmers out there trying to do their own fan games and mods. But one of the largest challenges is to find some art, be it sprites or models to use in your game. So what we're making here is a set of resources for wannabe modders and cloners. We've swept the far reaches of the internet to come up with interesting stuff that might be of use to you.

The Resource page consists of 2D and 3D resources. We've got sprites for those of you working to recreate a top-down melee. But we've also got 3D models of varying complexity for those of you who want that. The page itself is alive as well. Among others, the erstwhile Tsing has agreed to go through his archives and update/recreate a lot of the great stuff he currently displays on sa-matra.net. He's given us a Scout so far, but more is rolling of the production line as we speak. there are also a few modellers out there who have been interested, but much too busy to participate in this. When they find some time, we'll hopefully be able to include their stuff as well.

But for now, enjoy the page!. As always, feedback, improvement suggestions and the likes are very welcome

...for some reason my browser decided to open a rar file as text.

Anyway, it's nice to have such resources available.

The reason is that star-control.com serves the file with the mime type text/plain instead of application/x-rar-compressed.

I have no idea what this means, but sure. How would one change this?

If you have access to the Apache configuration, edit mime.types and add a line
Code:
application/x-rar-compressed rar

If you don't have access to that file, edit (or create) a file named .htaccess in the root dir of the web site, and add a line
Code:
AddType application/x-rar-compressed rar

Okay, this ought to be fixed now. What browser are you using Celtic? I didn't have the same problem in Firefox.

Yeah, it works now.

I guess Firefox is smarter than Safari in that particular aspect.

Thanks! Someday down the road I'd like to re-start Culture 20's 3D SC2 mod for Vega Strike so the 3d content will be very useful if it's low-poly enough to be used in-game.
