The daily screenshot thread!
« on: March 04, 2017, 10:38:04 am »
One screenshot a day ... and I can't come up with a second half ... "'Away'? Or maybe 'hooray'?" ...

Anyways, as opposed to ModDB, where only a few, selected screenshots are being uploaded, here we'll post random snapshots on a hopefully dayly basis.

Want some ISD glory shots? We got you covered.
Want to see a space ballet? We might have that too.

Ah yes, the infamous fighter_locomotor. I recall giving all my capital ships that + low speed and watch them fly around the enemy starbase, amusing but hardly useful. If there was some way to aquite just the vertical motion and rotation without the constant propulsion while engaging, that would make for a mightly fine new movement system. Sadly, that's one of the hardcoded parts of the game and thus it'll remain just this, a fun ballet show.

It's not the FIGHTER_LOCOMOTOR. It's a probably unfinished locomotor called STARSHIP_LOCOMOTOR.
It's a simulated Newtonian movement with drift, etc. But it's bugged and not really usable. I have a feeling it is a remnant from trying to allow fighter-like 3D-movement for bigger ships which got discarded halfway through development.

The third time's a charm, they say -- the ISD Mk1 in all its glory:

Not a screenshot, but as we are working on the mod's backend once more, here's a little headsup.
Maybe someone can figure out what's going on.

The ISD has one hundred and something hardpoints.
I think 106 or 108. Not too sure though. Could also be a little more... Was it 106 turrets? Too long ago.
