First of all, Cremuss, It's really great. I love to see such a solid, artistic and original gui. This is what I've been basically waiting for.

Second, Don't believe in Hoi unquestionably, he certainly has some good points but certainly some bad. Keep in mind that those are just his personal opinions and feelings.

For me, except the size reduction and removal of double edges, It seems getting backwards. I love the original's style.

More than anything, be loyal to your style and Imo the original is more loyal. I love the contrast. Keep the black or empty areas, it makes its more soft and not feel too cramped.

Buildpics are fine, although they were better in original. They are a bit bland. I'd add teamcolor and maybe frame them more sharply.

Energy and metal bar is awesome though needs icons or text. I prefer Icons, you could steal ones that CA has Imo they are great.

Like this : http://i131.photobucket.com/albums/p315 ... 1280190508
It's flat because it is the artistic style. You dont need to change that, I think its really awesome. Scraping it a bit wouldnt make it better but different.

dark colony infringment, i can see you ip-ekaboom ;)
Srsly, looks like bombermans fallout shelter, and thats a good thing. Do NOT LISTEN TO THE COMPLAINS COMING AFTER ME, WHICH WILL SOUND LIKE THIS:
>" How are so many, little legs supposed to carry something that big. Its unrealistic"


- Its fine as it is. Keep it there, dont change anything.

Either way looks cool

i feel like a post got eaten; looking good pressureline! camo application seems good; it looks "right" without hiding the unit. (its a shame we dont have some sort of sample-from-maptexture camo shader or something to that effect, so that camo would be different for barren/desert locations)

agorm i'm feeling a bit of space marine influence on that helmet, and im loving it. great work as always, can't wait to see these dudes bashing in some skulls ingame :twisted:

Procedural AO baked ground plate script, compare:

AO only

AO and shadows

shadows only
Image


neither

Also, the old ta textures got a tiny touch up.

An s3o to obj command line tool/script would really be appreciated, its 3do only atm.

Chances of this ending up in BA?


Also - I don't know how difficult this would be, but make the AO less of just a big circle and more fitting to each building? It looks good, but something more along the lines of Cremuss's models, where the AO is more subtle and matches the models.

Looks good though.

You misunderstand. the groundplates are mathematically rendered AO. the unit textures didn't get any AO. this doesn't affect the model. Cremuss's models would actually benefit from something like this.

(behe, correct me if I made a mistake, please!)

Cremuss uses the same method. Mine still has a bit of tweaking to be done for optimal looks.

Hm, interesting. Yours seem more circular/elliptical, and his look like they follow the contour of the model much more closely.

Maybe I'm just seeing things
