Just dropping a note to say how much I and Ro9ue appreciate your input, I'm still hacking away at the Wrath, which has now diversified into two seperate versions, and I've also done a few fun things to the Nightshade MkII (brought it up to spec), they'll be available in the addon, once and IF I can get my internet back to a working status.
For those who are wondering... the Wrath, in its two incarnations are going to fly a bit like the NS2, but it won't be as maneuverable, since it's a heavier fighter. Also, it's going to have FULL hyperdrive capability, not some half-assed mockup. I'm having texturing trouble right now, partly because my Milkshape went belly-up (crappy software, I swear). The textures won't export properly to ms3d format from 3dsmax, though I have the max2ms3d plugin for 3dsmax 6. I may have to totally retexture and try again, I dunno. I hope not though, took a long time to get it looking that good.
Well, a few new things in tohoku that I've been playing with... Planet Atum has a ring, and it doesn't cause crashes
.... Also, it's got a partially functional docking ring, I haven't gone in and done missions or zones, since those are more Ro9ue's areas of expertise. My specialty is ship design
You can purchase the NS2, and the Sobek there, and I've left room for the Wrath when it's completed. That will probably be one of only two places in the game that you're going to be able to purchase the Wrath... The other one being... You guessed it... The Battleship Osiris, there'll be one version at each location, though I haven't decided which to put where... My instinct says to put the Shadow Wrath on Atum, and the Orillion's Wrath on BS Osiris, sound ok to you all? If you're wondering what the differences are between those two variants of the Wrath, you'll just have to wait and see for yourself
Oh, btw, all the modifications that I have made so far to my game files have yet to require me to restart the campaign, I hate that too... the only thing that slightly worries me is when Ro9ue and I go and incorporate our seperate changes... But I'm betting that I'm only worrying out of habit, he's a pretty talented modder
Oh, and Black_Sabbath, please don't delete my character on your server? I've been having internet troubles
But I plan to return to kick some Nomad tail as soon as I can
By the way, doing the ship switch (I'd suggest a Titan, as I think it's unmodded, but only if you're friendly with the Corsairs) before upgrading to a new mod-release as a way to prevent save game conflicts is a really good idea, I recommend that everyone who upgrades to Aten II do this, it can save on headaches, and lost hours and days rebuilding your fortunes
Ro9ue and I will do everything we can to maintain compatibility with rebalance 3.5, while updating things and fixing others. My personal recommendation is to install the unofficial upgrade 1.4 patch before running Rebal 3.5 or any upgrades to it, it helps stability a great deal, at least in my experience. *disclaimer... Your mileage may vary due to differences in system configuration, graphics cards, karma, etc...*
Anyhoo, this is turning into a book, so for now, ta ta mates... My internet's screwy, so I'll try to keep in touch as much as possible
Let me know what you think of my ideas so far
Some say ignorance is bliss, I say they're just too blissful to know better.
