i went to it and saw, *facepalm* that's whjy i asked where it came from as they werent with the game or manual...  Huh

All i had to go by was watching melee in star control 2

so the center thing was supposed to be point defense lasers, the thing on the bottom of the bridge was supposed to be the fire control deck, and on top the Bridge.

The missiles are meh, and i was planning on redoing the bridge... but...

uhh, the that pic 's bridge looks so much different than the pin in melee...

Look at the image. Read his post history. Actually read it, do not skim.

I read every word of every post of his in chronological order before I commented the first time. He is eager, perhaps to a fault, but he is NOT a troll. Troll has a specific meaning. He does not fit it.

And one would think that the person who started this would be glad for any protectiveness towards trolls that we have.

ETA: ... oh, you flounced. Congratulations.

Don't worry about it, Kerr. Shiver just stirred up a little drama is all. Roll Eyes

the SC2 planets are created in a more complicated way Wink. fault formation, height maps and color maps Cheesy
effectively meaning that all the thousands of planets in SC2 have a different texture.

I once created such a random planet texture generator, using the actual SC2 colormaps and height translation maps.
You can download it here, and work from there: http://www.megaupload.com/?d=Y5YFX4HL (the flash files you want to run are in the 'bin' directory')
If you want bigger or different textures or a way to save the txtures other than using a printscreen, you need to learn as3 and work with the source files which I also provided Wink.


Here's a quick screenshot of the program in action:

top left is the height map, top right are the possible color translations in 3 color indexes (they are chosen based on the planet's temperature, but only differen with certain color maps (water and metal if i'm not mistaken)
bottom left the actual planet's surface.

that's pretty cool  Smiley

I made the textures of those planets using GIMP's plasma render, desaturate, colorize, and then made a bump map.

the ship is that pic was just something random.


(This is my first try at making planets lol)

EDIT:
This is my second.
(No Star Background)

EDIT:
That is a SC2 planet's textures. (Kudos if oyu know which planet)

*hint* that is the planet's class 8 atmosphere you see.

Perhaps it's the quality of perceived trolling that he's dissatisfied with Wink

Yes, that's the reason I created it. I needed a way to display the SC2 universe, including its planets, outside of UQM Wink.

Try again - he's taking credit for Shiver's ship-bashing thread, meaning Shiver is his sock puppet and hasn't really left us Grin

Faithfully your protege Cheesy

I was thinking Shiver might have been objecting to many-megabyte images, as well as their dimensions.
