Okay, Makes sense. Was trying to keep the general idea of the original texture, without making a near exact replica, thus the different plating, and different rust style. But if it would be better I can make them look more similar.

Once a satalite is in orbit, it takes very little energy comparitively to maintain said orbit. as the satalite approaches the highest point in its orbit, it turns prograde and fires thrusters to raise the lowest orbital point to the same elevation as the highest orbital point, which is usually a rat...

Wouldn't be all that hard to implement a height cap on shots fired.

if (Ysub2)-(Ysub1) > (-Vsub0)/(2G) Then Don't fire

Ysub1 being unit elevation and Ysub2 being target elevation

Okay, as a test I made this texture

roughly based on this one

Is this the kind of stuff that needs to be done?

I would still prefer value of units lost/won as opposed to direct numbers. Let's say you send 5 waves of 25 gunships at your opponent. your first two waves are completely destroyed, your 3rd wave destroys most of his defenses, and your 4th and 5th wave take out strategic targets before being shot do...

I think the soundpack that the player uses should be entirely up to the player, Spring could just have on the site music packs. I say we should compile some spring specific music that fits well together as to avoid possible legal troubles later, as well as sponsor the original soundset until we're t...

How can you decide the tides scales? (kills/s)/(deaths/s)>= 1 (win music) (kills/s)/(deaths/s)< 1 (lose music) ? That works for when combat has just finished (although I'd prefer value of units/buildings killed/lost as opposed to direct numbers), as determined by certain ammount of time (5s?) after...

I'd love to help if I knew what needed to be done. Can anyone link me to how to dump a GAF to PNG or describe it, so I can produce some textures roughly based on those needing to be replaced? This is all of course assuming I'm not kicking a dead horse, in that this little project has been either com...

Most of that environmental effect stuff can be done through EAX, if anyone would care to implement support of it. That's a bit out of my league there. The doppler effect thing i could probably do though, as long as velocities of units are kept somewhere. I'll see about writing up some code for it so...

we tried to get games going, but they kept getting out of sync. Spring really needs better netcode for games involving more than 3 players.

Game's can still be run, circumventing the lobby, you just have to edit your scripts, and know the connection details and script format everyone else is using.

The jet sound works for taking off, or for a sonic boom passing your screen. As for most other instances of a unit passing your screen, and actuall applied doppler effect would most likely be better than trying to recreate it through the sound itself. While I'd have to look up the formula again as I...

Correct, and it's missing

where is EternalStruggle.sm2?

And it will make it really hard for map makers to adjust gravity since any deviation from the normal will tend to make ballistic units either worthless or a must have. But as a RTS this is exactly the kind of thing that you want to have mulling over in the player's brains. "Well, let's see this pla...

Buggi, in your updated versions the regular copy of the map seems to be missing the proper .sm2 in the zip file.

It has to do with projectile angles. While that would work at minimal effective range difference, it doesn't work much farther in or out. For every angle that a projectile can be fired, it's opposite across a 45 degree line yields a hit in the exact same spot, baring different wind resistances. At t...

Would like to offer my assistance on the project.

I would like to help if at all possible. Currently my only major skill is databasing, as I was a head databaser for a game called Street Hacker ( http://www.streethacker.com ). I have minimal programming skills but learn fast (Adept at BASIC and know C Syntax). I have minimal Modeling Skills, but ha...
