Re: Elite: Dangerous - first impressions

Drew's Elite Dangerous streams are quite a lot of fun, more so if you have a drink every time has asks "why isn't this in alphabetical order?" when he's scrolling through that big list of commanders trying to find his wing mates, you get pretty hammered after about an hour :)

Re: File location of default ship textures?

Edit: another_commander answered as i was busy typing out a post on my kindle and then correcting it as the autocorrect was going crazy :D Good luck with the texture making tsoj ! If this is any use there's a 'resources' folder here: https://app.box.com/shared/rpkms25cc9 that has a lot of my oxp shi...

Re: Griff's normalmapped ship remakes

Sorry about the delay Cody, thanks for checking out the ship! :) are you OK editing the shipdata.plist in the OXP? if so here's some new external camera settings, i've moved the view twice as far out as it was before and placed the 'front view' down by the front of the gun, so it's more of a 'gun ca...

Re: Griff's normalmapped ship remakes

hmm, it does look like it's picky about the browser, just tried in Internet Explorer and i got a page saying the website wasn't compatible Just in case i've done something wrong trying to share the folder earlier i think this is a direct link to the multidecal player version of the oxp https://drive...

Re: Screenshots

love those re-textures :) the cobra looks very alien and organic! i'd uploaded some modding resources for that cobIII remake but forgotten to link to them, so if it's any help there's a zip here with the ship in obj format and the texture file split into layers making it easier to switch off the gru...

Re: Griff's normalmapped ship remakes

Thanks for picking through all this and fixing stuff A_C, i was just having a read of the lighting guide, http://www.aegidian.org/bb/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=19881&sid=f6be0d9c7a2c10e72ee55ac4427c452e - the lightbulb floating above my head is very dim but slowly starting to brighten :) it's not the guide...

Re: Griff's normalmapped ship remakes

i definately need to read the pbr guide again, i'm certain i'm probaby using an incorrect material heh, i edit shaders by just trying to copy as much as i can from oolite's default shader before rendermonkey breaks, the ones n the oxp "griff_HP_CobraIII_NPC" and "griff_HP_CobraIII_PLAYER" are the on...

Re: Griff's normalmapped ship remakes

cor, sorry about the 6 month delay on that cobraIII a few posts up, I finally got around to texturing the model and bundling it into a test oxp, substance painter didn't work out for me in the end, i don't think i had enough memory in my pc to use it with more than a few layers plus i don't think i'...

Re: Griff's normalmapped ship remakes

I'm hoping Substance Painter is going to really drastically speed up the texturing, with a bit of time i'm hoping that i'll eventually build up a 'library' of various types of surface that can then just be dropped onto sections of the model and have substance painter generate the various colour and ...

Re: Griff's normalmapped ship remakes

I'm pretty sure with the new pbr code in oolite we'll be able to give it a proper chrome surface now too (might be slightly blue though if i can't fix my bugs)

Re: Griff's normalmapped ship remakes

yep will definitely work to make this as easily modifiable as possible, there's some amazing paint scheme designers an artists here i'm hoping will be able to work their magic on it. I've been tinkering on bringing the new lighting code from Oolite into the shader i was using for the 'normal mapped ...

Re: Retro, Commander …

I'm really enjoying Drew's 'Elite Dangerous' Lore Tour, been following along a day or two later when Drew posts the videos up to his YouTube channel, last weeks episode featured and interview with Selezen (Dave Hughes) and there was some Oolite chat and even an in-game appearance!

Re: Griff's normalmapped ship remakes

Apologies a bit of a blog post, I've made a start turning the 'alternative cobra III' ship i made a while back into a medium-high poly version, just done the back and the side of the ship at the moment, have managed to make lots of polygon tangles that will need sorting out as usual. I've never atte...
