    Who can help? - So many Blender questions ...

    Are you sure the ships are copies and not instances/references of each other? (again speaking in 3ds max terms) Like you have one master model and the other 2 are instances/references of it, then each change on one of them, would also change the other 2. Should be easy to find out if you...

    Who can help? - So many Blender questions ...

    I'm not familiar with Blender (only 3ds max), but the 1 model 1 texture approach isn't necessary at all imo. You do such things if you want to 3d print the model, so there are no holes in it and the model is a closed hull. In 3ds max (and pretty sure also in Blender) there is something called...

    Space Sim First Look: Squadron: Mercenaries (March 23, 2024)

    The WIP video has a kind of old school charme that reminds me more on movies like "The last Starfighter" or old vector based games like "Stellar 7" than the Wing Commander series. Though with the engine seeming to be rather solid already, I think it only needs some good looking 3d models and...

    Privateer 2: Can you use cheats to complete missions?

    Priv2 cheats don't have any limitations. You can complete the entire game with them enabled. Sometimes you actually need them, like unlimited nukes. Especially in the beginning when you have so few credits and have to do cargo runs without any weapons. If you have bad luck, lots of pirates can...

    Bootleg Lego Dragon Arrives! (January 11, 2024)

    You should be careful calling those interlocking toy bricks by the name LEGO. Those bricks are most likely made by BlueBrixx, XINGBAO or some other company. If LEGO sees other company bricks advertised under the name of LEGO, their lawyers can cause a lot of trouble for you. Also, if this set...

    This looks promising. However, I just tried to run it and got a System Error message "The code execution cannot proceed because MSVCP140.dll was not found. Reinstalling the program may fix this problem." After that another message: "The code execution cannot proceed because VCRUNTIME140.dll was...

    Tarsus (Privateer) painted 3D Print (01)

    Woah, that's some very nice detail level. I love the tiny markings and labels. Could you describe a bit more in detail what you did there? Do you used airbrush, painted yourself with a brush, or some other technique? You could also record a bit of your work and put a video on youtube. I think...

    Privateer 2: Can't complete mission "Davis & Co. Armaments and Supplies, Nerve Weapon - Part C"

    Hi avengah, I've recently noticed your amazing finds about Priv2 and also noticed that you figured out several bits in the savegame. Could you write in a single post what kind of improvement suggestions and bugs you've found in my savegame editor? e.g. -what's the format for accepted missions...

    Privateer 2 editing and extracting

    With the p2-editor you can find them out too. (or look in the boothinfo.ini of the editor, where i collected already many different strings/names) entry 30 and up seem to be not used anymore as reporternames ingame as these represent strings for other things.

    Privateer 2 editing and extracting

    I really hope you get the booth uncompressed as well, as i have the guess that this one contains all the ships info like shields, hull, speed, steering, bounty fee etc. And being able to edit these was always the holy grail for my p2-editor. Oh and thank you very much for the source code and...

    Privateer 2 The Darkening Savegame and exe editor

    Afaik, are the player credits and not the killings responsible for the strength and amount of the pirates. To make the pirates weak again, you would have to reduce your cash under 20.000Cr and i'm also not sure if a once reached difficulty level can ever lower to a previous easier level...

    Privateer 2 editing and extracting

    Oh wow. You sir, are a genius. :cool: With your text unpacker c# code, i can also put another part to my P2-FileEditor. I hope i can soon find enough time to finish it for a first beta release.

    Privateer 2 The Darkening Savegame and exe editor

    There will be presumably at least 2 or more future versions. The next one will add even more editable stuff from the savegame (maybe finally every single savegame aspect). I'm also working parallel on a Privateer 2 File browser/manager, with which you can edit/extract/create bigf archives, iff...

    Privateer 2 The Darkening Savegame and exe editor

    I've finished the new version 2.0 of the editor Download: @mod/admin: it would be nice if you could host the zip on wcnews again, as the rapidshare download will be deleted automatically after a while. Maybe you could also allow me to upload zip files as forum attachments...

    STRANGE Privateer 2 event

    wow Storm, that is really bad luck to get hit from a disruptor missile just in this moment. I assume this is a 1:1.000.000 chance to get into this peculiar situation. Since turreted ships controlled by the player can't use the turrets (they face towards the selected enemy, but the fired weapons...
