Title: GFX Mod: Alternate Colony Ship Sprite (Revision 2)
Post by: eRe4s3r on December 19, 2009, 12:50:56 AM
Revision 2 - No Animation, no blue glow, no glow at all.. just a new sprite, for the purists ;)

Oh yes... install, extract colony ship rar in your AI War directory, back up the images/ships/colony Ship directory first.

And as extra the 3d rendering of the ship.. though it looks quite different ;p

Cool job. However, my biggest beef with the Colony Ship is that the large blue area makes the entire ship look dumb. With your mod it doesn't look like a suppository anymore, but I wish you could do something about the silly blue color. ;)

I am surpised that 'the blue bit' on the colony ship is causing such emnity but a giant monkey's head as the Leech starship goes unmentioned!  You people are weird.

No kidding!  ;D

You know if you hate the blue you can open it up in photoshop and simply desaturate that part ;)

Its blue because.. the original was blue - though sure i can make it non-blue .. i guess

That was one I was hoping would get replaced during the graphic overhauls, but when I mentioned this, I was basically told how awesome it is, so that was that. :P I pretend now that it's a paint job on the ship to make it more terrifying, heh.

I always see blue pills flying around and i needn't tell you what that relates to (and their shape of all things..) :D I must be perverted or something...

Well, heres a fix for them for those who don't want flying....... blue things ^^

Getting back on topic...
I'm initiating a petition for using this as a replacement for the current colony ship, the current one looks uh-gly. This is cool looking!
On that note, is it possible to make a modified version of the model for the transport?

Sure i can extend it randomly/in all ways, but what would you want it to look like as Transporter Version?  ;)

Just, fatter?

Also this doesn't replace the menu icons at all (sorry, but i am not really the dude you want to ask for miniature pixel art..) I tried doing these myself but small icons of that size i can not render...

Something like, has extensions off the side wings that have some sort of docking clamps looking things on it or something would work wonders!

Well done that ;) Same style as well...

No more blue pills of doom, and blue pills stacked on top of each other transport of doom  ;D

I think you guys should try remaking the fortress, and make it look more menacing and more like a slow mobile space station.

I think that's a decent idea! The fortress sprite never really struck me as "right".

And pretty soon we're going to have him redesigning all the in-game sprites... :)

The AI progress increases by 100 for every hacked png file.

     You're not allowed to make fortresses look like that until they're worth building, because then I will want to build them.
