    True, but if you can see the spheres can't you do a nocolide texture on the back of it ? so it won't be visible ?
    That makes no sense. oO
    Only the inside of the sphere model is textured, so you look through the outside into the inside. It would need a texture on the outside, that culls every visible part of the model that's behind it. And as far as I know, such a texture or .vmt parameter doesn't exist.

    Quick question about FTL, when Destiny jumps in and out of FTL are you going to have the blur affect we see in the show?
    Maybe. I know of two different ways to achieve this effect, but haven't put any work into it yet.

    That's what your imagination is for.

    Stop worrying about such things and wait for the solution tikay comes up with.
    If there's not going to be a blur effect, then fine,...if yes, then so be it.
    I have to say though, that regardless of my bad pc settings i'd prefer the latter...because it would otherwise be like not having the kwoosh when the gate opens.
    Anyway, let's wait for tikay. ^^

    It would probably run as any other map out there! Why would it run differently?

    I recently upgraded: Intel i5 2500K overclocked to 4,5 GHz (quadcore), 8 GB DDR3 RAM (1333 MHZ), MSI's OC variant of the GeForce GTX 560 Ti and all on a Asus P8P67 Pro board.
    It runs smoothly. :P
    But it also ran without problems on my old system: Intel C2D E8500 (3,2 GHz, dualcore), 4 GB DDR2 RAM (800 MHz), Geforce GTX 260, Asus P5Q.

    That's not really any of your business, why do people think that he should be working on this map constantly.

    Hallowed are we. Hallowed are the Ori. Those who stray from the path must be guided back or destroyed. You must destroy him! It is the will of the Ori!

    @Map: Will there be a databank/archive somewhere? I love those <3 I mean, will there be huge memory frames, a cool screen or something (I know a screen wasnt seen in the series <.<)

    ah hell,... i'd so hope to win in lottery before they make an auction again like last year for the sg-1/sga props. :razz:
    first thing to buy, the sgu gate :holy: and put it into my garden as decoration *muhahaha*

    but something else,...
    though they're closing down the set since march already, it's kind of a "hope on the horizon" to see that the map is still bein worked on. ^^
