Oh, my bad :P By that I meant the theme of the campaign, Skaarj structures and stuff. There's no real storyline for that one yet tho, so anything can happen. :)

This keeps looking better and better! You might want to cut down on the effects in future videos, though.

Anyone can give an opinion about the following:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jpkVzWDV7yA
As you can see, weapons now move when you look around. But I'm wondering what looks best: keeping them at the same spot but rotate them a bit, or let them move along as you look (second part of the vid). Keep in mind that if I would have them move along, then that means that the bullets would also move away from your crosshiar if you fire..
Also if anybody has any weapon suggestions feel free to share them with me, need at least 15 more. :D

I think only rotating the weapon looks smoother than rotating/moving. It's definitely a cool effect. How does it look online?

Online it looks exactly the same as offline. Gotta say, that's a first for me :D
The only problem I have right now is how to limit the Rotation.Pitch to prevent you from seeing the back side of let's see the automag, hollow hand :O
Looking horizontal is 0 but looking a bit down starts at 18000 or something so that's a pain to work out :S

The second movement is really good. The first one is kind'a off.

As it comes to rotation I used something like this. Can't really reamember how did I do it actually...

Code: Select all

   Local rotator ShipRotation, OldShipRotation, SecondRot;
   local rotator turn;

   OldShipRotation = Ship.Rotation;
   ShipRotation = Ship.Rotation;

   if(Viewrotation.Pitch - ShipRotation.Pitch < -32768 )
      SecondRot.Pitch  = Viewrotation.Pitch  - ShipRotation.Pitch + 2*32768;
   else if(Viewrotation.Pitch  - ShipRotation.Pitch  >= 32768 )
      SecondRot.Pitch  = Viewrotation.Pitch  - ShipRotation.Pitch  - 2*32768;
   else
      SecondRot.Pitch  = Viewrotation.Pitch  - ShipRotation.Pitch  ;

I used this to rotate my ship all and around using quaternions and it worked well... I hope it is it, I have no time to check it out.

Edit: Why do I have a feeling this is wrong...?

Fixed it so it won't move too much when moving vertically, result:

(no sound 'cuz I had some disturbing music on while recording :X) Personally I think this one looks the best. Bullets will fire at the direction the weapon is pointing too :D

Great effect! However, the visual part of the weaponry (like that ammo display) is killing me. Bright green and blue don't really look nice at all. Same goes for that yellow shieldbelt overlay thing from the first video. D:

What's wrong with the shieldbelt glow? :O
Dunno how else I could do the ammo box, it's a scripted texture so it's best to leave it translucent.

I actually think it's alright, although maybe moving to a red/black or red/brown display instead of the blue/yellow wouldn't clash so much.

I like the effects
