Very Minor Details


Recommended Posts

Was just pushing about another useless assualt on wayland by NR forces when I noticed something a little 'odd' about one of my ISDs. Seems there's a 'panel' or something sticking up on the left side of the command tower. Can only really see it when looking at the ship from the rear and kind of hard to see it from any other angle. Just felt the team should know... and yes I'll be editing this when I notice other random details like that.

What do you mean they blew up the death star?!?

Well's who's they?!? What the hell is an Aluminum Falcon?!?

This is most probably the result of two things. One is the basic 3d engine used by Rebellion (something that is hard coded and doesn't appear to be editable). Part of the engines limitations was that when parts of a 3d model get too close, the engine doesn't know which to show. This bug use to come up with the original Rebellion as well - but the low poly models made it harder to notice, and harder for the problem to occur.

The second problem is the model used. Simply put it's both a higher detail model, and a model not designed to work with Rebellion's deficiencies. Even models carefully made, or edited to work better, will have this short falling.

The only solution, to date, is to re-model the ship and try (I use that word very liberally) to fix the problem. Of course, modelling the ship is time consuming, and then it needs to be textured. The model already used is of high quality standards, and it would seem a shame to simply get rid of it.

However, the Reloaded team is looking into this issue again.
