Some art for the loading screen?

Post by Torrasque » 10 Aug 2005, 22:42

I've just seen that in the latest CVS, you can add bmp and jpg in spring , and they will be displayed during the loading. (spring choose one randomly in the
\bitmaps\loadpictures directory)

So, does someone has good pics?
Some of those look quite cool : http://taspring.clan-sy.com/phpbb/viewtopic.php?t=1800

Ask Neuralize about using some of his renders...they look great.

Screenshots would be okay, but they'd have to be really spiffy ones. As those map shots are (I was amazed when I first saw those...) but it would be nice if the loading shots were something we wouldn't be seeing for the rest of the game.

How bout the minimap with the start positions of the players overlayed on it? That could be good. Screenshots are not always that good, have some of the artwork from the art section. Or even just the spring logo.

I've all these:

Amongst which I like:

http://zwzsg.hosted.luckz.de/img/spring ... Attack.jpg
http://zwzsg.hosted.luckz.de/img/spring ... 20base.jpg
http://zwzsg.hosted.luckz.de/img/spring ... 20Core.jpg

I'll try to remember to press F5 before screenshoting cause the GUI is ugly. And I wish I had a better graphic card to have all the effects.

i contributethis,if someone likes it can use it in his folder.

e: those models were made by the same guy who did evolva models.
are very cool, disciplus posted that. only bout 15 models, for arm only, and some guys complained that it had too many polys.. haha.

i had a full game (4 hours, very long) with those models enabled, no crash.
well my puter is not very powerfull, but it was playable (with around 1500 units in game, i had bout.. 8-12 decoy commanders).

We have talked a bit about having two xta versions in the next release a normal version and a high poly version. If someone would want to assemble all the existing high poly models and make sure they are XTA sized it would be very helpfull.

I thought that they were buggy, like the shots didn't fire from the right spot, etc. Or are you saying that's what needs to be done? ("XTA sized")

Hm yes making shots fire from the right pos would be important also but what i originally meant was that for example the xta missile tower is smaller while the xta bertha is larger than the original ones.

Gurkha: Shiny TA from that spring mod pack. It's OTA balance + Evolva models.

mod definitions should be able to define custom load screens rather than randomly selecting from a central pool, instead it should be definable as based on a race and mod.
