    Following ChrisReid's wish in this news post and since there is no similar topic yet (at least the forum search hasn't found one), i thought it would be good to create one.

    So lets collect here our cool P2D screenshots.

    Let me start with a small collection showing
    -Sheila Nabokov's Dreadnaught (background) next to my freighter Dreadnaught (in focus)
    -my Freij MKII firing its weapons
    -2 shots of the last mission against the Krono
    -and a fleet of CIS capital ships near Athos (Nav 120)

    This is a great idea.

    It would actually be a pretty cool thing to do for every game and be a great resource for WCPedia articles.

    Nice thinking!

    Since WCPedia makes huge steps in the P2D area, i thought it might be useful to have screenshots of the different locations in the Tri System.
    So here they are all together:

    1 - Hermes Sinners Inn
    2 - Hermes

    3 - Crius
    4 - Crius Hospital
    5 - Crius Shernikov
    6 - Crius Surgeons Blunder
    7 - Crius Taffin (goes direct into Video sequence)

    8 - Anhur
    9 - Anhur Shadow Play Bar
    10 - Anhur Interplanetary Aid

    11 - Hades
    12 - Hades Prisoncaves (goes direct into video sequence)
    13 - Hades CIS Office

    14 - Hephaestus
    15 - Hephaestus Galactic Gourmet
    16 - Hephaestus Rampant Robot Bar

    17 - Bex
    18 - Bex Blessed Brew Bar
    19 - Bex Museum of Hom
    20 - Bex Hugo Carmichaels Apartment

    21 - Janus IV
    22 - Janus IV ??? I don't know this one (goes direct into video sequence)
    23 - Janus IV Jan Mitorrs House (goes direct into video sequence)

    25 - Karatikus

    27 - Commodity Station
    28 - Super Station
    29 - Terrel / Serca
    32 - Repair Station
    33 - Corinthias / Desolia
    34 - Ostinia / Athos
    35 - Massanas / Leviatha
    36 - Petra / Destinas
    37 - Equipment Station

    Note: some scenes don't have a still image and go directly into the movie, thus some of the screenshots show an early frame of the FMV instead.
    The scene number is the internal used number.

    That's fantastic! Thanks for these! We'll be sure to get them into their respective articles when they are created.

    The Origin Legacy section (first part) of the CIC's own Wallpaper section offers higher-resolution version of some of those planet-side images, just so you know.

    yep, i know them and downloaded them already long ago. Btw, thanks wcnews for having these beautiful rarities (and for all the other P2D gems :)).
    They are really interesting as they also have some slight differences compared to the final ingame version.
    e.g. the 800x600 super station interior doesn't has the cabines (translated from german; i don't know the english name; could be booths too) like the ingame version

    the position of the whole 3d-model of the Massanas Leviatha planets surface according to the corridor with the cabine is also completely different between the wallpaper version and the ingame version. This one is especially interesting, as you can see where one 3d-model starts and the other ends. It also shows quite clear that all the moons (29 - Terrel / Serca; 33 - Corinthias / Desolia; 34 - Ostinia / Athos; 35 - Massanas / Leviatha; 36 - Petra / Destinas) share the same corridor 3d-model, just from a different perspective and with a different background (though some also share the same background just from a different perspective).

    the Ostinia Athos ingame interior is also slightly different to the wallpaper version, which has a different metal-grid roof and a different bent pipe.

    Though some of these differences may be a result of the changing animations in the ingame version. e.g. the flickering light in the Ostinia Athos interior has the same size as the different part to the wallpaper version. So maybe under the ingame anim, there is still the same image as the wallpaper.

    \EDIT
    right now i see that the flickering light in the Ostinia Athos interior is actually misplaced. It should be actually placed far more to the left and top.
    Attached is a picture showing the part of the wrong placed anim.
    The yellow arrow shows the parts that are the same and which should be seemless connected.

    \EDIT
    i just found this website which has 3 pictures in 640x480 resolution, that i haven't seen here too (or i missed/forgot them). Especially the one of the Bex landing sequence is interesting

    Well spotted, I didn't notice that before. I suspect the differences are due to the animations, with the background being the common 'denominator'.

    Wanted to bump this and issue a request.

    I'm going through and adding the P2 weapons today. Could someone extract the weapon images and either upload them here or to WCPedia?

    What about these?

    To create animations of the ingame shown weapons could be a quite time consuming job.

    I don't need animations. I'd like to have still shots for the infobox images. Spinning images can go in the actual article.

    I'm also graphically-challenged so have no clue how to split those spinning images or the like.

    I uploaded Lin Kuei's animations along with their static image equivalents. Hope this is what you wanted.

    I'll be busy until later this afternoon but will then start adding the images to their articles.

    Thanks guys!
