[MOD] Warp Gate Redesign - V1.0 Available 13/2/2011

Post by Cadius » Sat, 4. Sep 10, 09:36

This mod redesigns the model of the Warp Gates in the game. The Gates have been resized to allow even the Valhalla to pass through, more optimized for better performance and sporting a new look.

Download

Install Instructions
1. Download the gate model of your choice
2. Install it using Cycrow's Plugin Manager
3. Start your game
4. If you are loading a savegame, you will not see the new gate models until you jump to another sector. This allows the game to load the new model

Important Notes
1. If you uninstall the mod you will see invisible gates until you jump to another sector.
2. Only use one gate mod at a time.
3. You might encounter errors when installing the spk with Plugin Manager older than v1.30

The following mods and scripts are highly recommended..

Cadius,

Now that is one of the better gate designs i've seen !

Will it have an event horizon? or be open and when reaching curtain point the ship Jumps / accelerates away?

Do you have a texture theme in mind yet?

Now THAT looks like something a highly advanced ancient alien race would build.

Fantastic work Cadius. Looks far more likely than the current one.

Please though can there be a version without an event horizon ;)

There may be a issue with the Hub gates. Replacing those might have an effect on the placement and how they look within the Hub.

Just a heads up on that point. Anywhere else there isn't a spacing ratio.

HUB gates? You can specify which gates are replaced if you use a script, if it's straight model replacement you can edit the HUB to use the original Argon ones and the rest to use Cadius's...

hub gates are different from the standard commonwealth gates. so changing commonwealth gates has nothing to do with the hub.

Shiny and Fluffy Cad, Kickass work!

Those Ancient Gates remind my of something I'd see in Tron :D Also, where would they be used?

Well, the concept of thickening the structure and breaking up the symmetry is a good one. The textures, however, are a bit of a let-down, to be fair. Given that this thing will be much, much larger than any destroyer or station, it really needs much, much, much more detailing.

NOTE: He said it's a WIP!!

Edit: The only reason the ring is textured is that it's taken from the original X3TC gate.....

My only request; make a normal sized version. I like the way they limit the size of ships.
