PostSubject: Not good. Really not good.   Fri Aug 02, 2013 3:21 am

This is just my thoughts but...
We are dying, this forum can't support us, in my eyes it needs to be our number one priority to either clean this one up, or find a new one. I've noticed that many to the common users on the .com forum have now gone silent. We need to get out of this inhospitable wasteland of a website.

Depending on how forummotion resolves subdomains, we might be able to direct the fc-mod domain back to this board for the time being. Though really anywhere else is fine. That squatter site can go eat a dick.

I will get us a new host next week. I am traveling in the meantime so you'll have to bear with it.

One thing I was wondering though is if anyone is interested in having a permanent mc server for the forum as well. This wouldn't be the mmo server, just a regular one but still.

So the famine will not last all too long. Still, anyone in need of toasters?

He is still around, I've been speaking to him over PMC, and he has offered to retexture the UTF Scimitar as apparently it offends his eyes.

Well it does look a bit cardboard to be honest, hope he will make it better Wink , also you really need to start using NOISE, with a simple 1 sec operation you can make your build much more realistic

Noise doesn't really make it look realistic, and it is ugly, better to do a proper texture, I am going on holiday in a week, and I can't make any models, but I might be able to do a texture

I used to noise. Then I realized- not worth it.

Noise is just ugly, you are better off shading manually, this takes longer, but you can make a better quality texture, fortunately I just discovered a quick, easy and effective way to do the on large vehicles, the result is this:



No I haven't textured the rest of the wing, and I am going to give each wing a different texture area

I disagree, I use it on all of my textures and in right proportions it makes a good effect, you just need to know how to use it, monotonic and preferibly not too hard. It does NOT replace shading, it just adds TEXTURE to the thing giving it a feeling of a true item.

You might also try blending real texture swatches instead of straight noise.

IT becomes a bit harder on lower res.

Blending? I'm sure it's hard on 64x64!

I'm sorry Iv, I REALLY don't appreciate you attacking my use of 64x64 textures over a PM, and by extension, me.

Iv is insultingly opinionated, and doesn't care if everyone knows it. You're going to have to accept that if you want to be on a forum with him. My advice would be to just ignore whatever it is he's going on about this time.

I do not FKING ATTACK YOU. I'm really getting tired of being demonized wherever I go for whatever I try to do I just get insulted. Now Good LJS is going to blame it on me, or the RP or anything else. Need a cool to push around ? Find another one.

Quote :
[in reply to "And it isn't quantity, it's quality."] Well sure Frost should remain on the engine until we get HF3 out of it in voxel environment , it is a good saying but making twice as many textures is a serious advantage, especially if the quality looks like 64x64, if you try hard you can make things look well at 16x16 too for example my shivan texture pack, it is really down to your knowledge of texturing


THAT IS ALL WHAT I SAID ! I NEVER EVER SAID ANYTHING ABOUT YOUR SKILL OR EVEN ABOUT 64x64 ! Sorry but now I am expecting an apology because that combined with lying I do not stand for .


And you LJS how can you even know what I wrote ? Are you mind reading or just ready to jump on the opportunity ?

I have no idea what you said in this particular instance, but I know how you tend to talk and if Fenway says you insulted him, I completely believe him. We've had this discussion before.

Yes it is not the first time you antagonize me in public, I wonder why couldn't you say the same in private ? What it even has to do with this topic ? Did you post it just to try and hurt my feelings ? Does it feel better that you have "public support ?" , or you can't go against the wind ? Know what you can keep it here if you want ... You always doubt me and no matter how many times I try to prove myself or help you or do anything you reject me, I guess it is your whole loss ... I value targareyan for example that he takes criticism like a man and tries to improve upon himself, building greater and greater stuff.

I also worked with textures quite a lot and gave you a lot of useful advice on how to make yours look better no matter what res they are on, little tricks I learned myself, you rejected that too ... If so you are on your own now, I won't make any textures or help you make textures and I am currently deleting the 10+ I made in my free time, you wanted it didn't you ? Alright I'll let you win if you can call it a victory, gg ...

*sigh* Never mind.

Prototype, do what you want. Don't listen to us. It's just another internet argument because I'm fed up with how things are going.

I'm considering leaving the mod. Why? It's going absolutely nowhere. No amount of "Development" or "Hiring modders" is ever going to change that. Face it, it's never coming out. A dead dream.

It will be done, eventually :/ At least when frost finishes the engine (though I have no idea when that will be) it will probably motivate us to be more productive. In any case, the flan pack and some of the fairly awesome textures you and others have done are examples of what can be done when the forums members put thier minds to things. I am probably not the best person to say that though; I have very little skill in anything even vaguely mod related.
