Re: [MOD] Hold the Line

Now this is a concept I absolutely love. Being able to "take back" a sector by pounding the snot out of the fleet chasing you? Hell yes! Brilliant idea STL, thank you for this.

Re: [MOD- WIP] USS Enterprise A

The custom sounds intrigue me! That's very cool :D Would've liked to see a demonstration of the "gibs" as well, though intentionally getting blown up is never fun... As for the airlock doors, are their target rooms set to -1? That seems to be game code for "empty space." DOOR <x>...

Re: [MOD-WIP] Obsidian Cruiser

Morning update: I stayed up a lot longer than I should've, playing with the Singularity Projector spritework. Got a prototype of the "explosion" part of the bomb done. Will probably go back and tweak this a lot, but for now it seems functional. http://i50.photobucket.com/albums/f321/Kieve/...

Re: [MOD- WIP] USS Enterprise A

Not too shabby! I do like how this one seems a bit more graphically "in tune" with the existing artwork. I might suggest at the very least a photoshop "Find Edges" overlay for a black border, but it looks pretty decent even without. Good job ;)

Re: [MOD-WIP] Obsidian Cruiser

A final update for tonight. http://i50.photobucket.com/albums/f321/Kieve/th_DarkCrystalWIP2_zpse4a01da1.jpg Reworked the look of the crystal bits. For the first, I was using an embossed layer to mimic the Crystal Cruiser's structure, but I think this version works better for an "obsidian" ...

Re: [MOD-WIP] Obsidian Cruiser

Weapons level IV is a huge boon, so and considering the other capabilities of the ship I'd say it shouldn't start with any other weapons. Maybe... on the one hand, shields + cloak gives ample time for charging it, and there's Crystal Vengeance for when an enemy missile slips by. On the other hand, ...

Re: Modding Section

Seems like you have to hit 10 posts before you can PM anyone. I sent zasdarq a message just now, so hopefully they're not too buried in bugfixes and patch-work to set it up, but I fully understand if tweaking the forum isn't their top priority right now. ;)

Re: [MOD-WIP] Obsidian Cruiser

I like the looks of this idea so far and just have one question. Will you be able to use the "gravity-well" from the beginning of the game? If not, what other weapons will you start with? Other than that, looking forward to the completion of this mod (and not just because engi B is my lea...
