TA must have the most 3rd party engines based on it of any game 8)

lookin pretty good, you will probably attract the people still clinging to OTA.

shadows are cast on to the water's surface and it looks kinda weird

I know the eye candy stuff probably isn't your focus right now, but could we make room for more accurately reflected water and shadows? I mean, that water is just too sexy to not fix. 8)

REVENGE - just post your suggestion on our forum at ta3d.sourceforge.net and we`ll fix it as soon as possible.

sourceforge.net behave strange lately, so if forum don`t work just refresh it one-two times.

Naah, that award CLEARLY goes to Quake. At times I had 3-4 different engines installed for that.

I presume you say this as a response to my proposal to use the same site code for both Spring and TA3D?
There are actually a lot of reasons not to do this. But I'm willing to see if it can be worth wile.

Apples and oranges in any case, TA's engine was never licensed out for other games and much of its functionality had to be duplicated from scratch without source-code access, the Quake engines (Q3's in particular) and SDKs and whatnot you could pretty much get with a roll of toiletpaper.

useless project ... you should improve spring and make OTA campaign for it instead of doing a new useless engine

Satirik - there are several very important reasons, why we chose to make a new engine :) Why not respect a huge amount of work, that was done? This project in development more than a year, hope we`ll make it v.1.0. someday. :roll:

Tim Blokdijk - sorry, that`s was conserning http://www.xenoclone.com/ stuff :)

its their time and project.


spring was(IS) made for fun, just like TA3D, why shouldnt we all stop making spring and instead go help supcom modding scene isntead of the useless spring engine?

i respect the work you have done, the screenshots look very promising! good luck with the project and hope the 1.0 will be out soon with multiplayer support ;)

zwzsg made a post about them on TAU, im not sure if its still there, but i remember reading about spring for the first time in there, along with TA3D, some modded FPS engine, and 2-3 other engines too, most of them being total crap.

because supcom is not open source and free (and because supcom is a bad game for now)

As far as I know the projects have different goals.

Excuse me if I'm wrong, but I recall the goal of TA3D is to be 100% compatible with TA content.

The goal of Spring was to just run content from TA, not necessarily be 100% compatible (it never has been and it never will be 100% compatible).
The current goal (more like heading since it's not really defined as the goal anywhere) of Spring is providing more flexibility to modders, to support a bunch of different games, not only TA based.

Spring is more heading towards a generic RTS engine with it's roots in TA, while TA3D is aiming to replicate TA.

I'm starting to feel the same.

Well, Babax, I for one wish TA3D well. I'll even play from time to time.
