Just wanted to say your work is truly incredible.. been drooling over all your videos and pictures. Amazing stuff!

I'm also very curious to see what your rendering effects have done to interior locations eg the various moody space & planet bars? When I think of the bars & shops on the Bretonia, Rheinland & Kusari homeworlds there's lots of interesting light sources and a few moving objects creating all sorts of interesting light & shadow effect opportunities. Plus you're a lot closer to the low res textures so FL really shows it's age here..

Thanks guys for the kind words! This really helps to stay motivated

The interiors look a little bit better (because of the improved lighting etc), but I have not yet processed any of the textures (I wrote some posts back what I do with them). Also, since there is no material system yet and I treat everything as metal, all the characters look like they are made of metal (which gave me quite a laugh in the beginning ). This is the reason why I didn't show any pictures yet, it's just not worth it at the moment.

I bet to differ, every character looking like metal would be quite entertaining and totally worth it

They are gonna go like sorta boozed metal music fans. (Just hearing Alestorm at the same time writing this post ) Epic joke with epic music!

More seriously, like Bolt, I would like to see this. It would be kinda fun!

Yep... indeed! And I have some ideas how making HD textures, heightmaps and normal maps of the planets. But it is a quite long task to do, so I must find some peoples who want to take an eye on this project. For me, the best way is to delegate the work between 3 or 4 people, where I'm one of them. I've already thought about how to make height using GIMP. And we have not to forget that some room shadows were insert on the texture, so we should take care about that. Or else rework lighting in the rooms via thn and the wrapper.

I love in this video how the bottom of the station reflects the orange nebula.

I'm a big player the X series games and one of my most fondest memories was the first time I started up X3 Reunion in 2007 and was flying around the Argon home system and was stunned to see the planet and moon reflecting off the metallic space stations and ships! I remember thinking "we've entered a new era of realistic looking space games.. if only Freelancer had come out in this era". Schmackbolzen's mod is making that dream a reality!

This is making me want to get back into Freelancer modding. I didn't think anything could do that. Very good work all around, Schmack.
