Nova TC graphic/programming help needed!!

If you are interested in working on a Nova total conversion with yours trully, in any way what so ever - preferably on the 3d graphic design side of things, please check out the TC's web page ( (url="http://"http://3114.spyw.com")http://3114.spyw.com(/url) ).

Any other help with mission design, ship design, etc (on the programming side of things) would also be greatly appreciated.

Input is also appreciated.

If enough people want to get together perhaps we could form some sort of development team... and then who knows...

The galaxy is about to become apocalyptic: (url="http://"http://3114.spyw.com")3114:A Nova TC(/url)

I can do programming in NovaTools...

------------------

What are your limitations, if any?

I will mainly need help with the time consumming things such as system placement and some of the minor mission strings.

I am happy to (or I want to) do things like the major missions myself, but as I am not the most knowlegdeable person about when it comes to some of the complicated things in nova tools, I will need help.

I think if two or three people work together on the atmosphearic qualities of the plugin (story, spob descriptions, ship descriptions, etc) the plug will have a much more diverse feel to it. When one person works on the same thing for a long time it often becomes one tracked and everything far too similar.

What do you think of the story?

Its just that everyone and their uncle is looking for a graphics person, and there is a new "I'm starting a TC/Development Team {delete as applicable} HELP ME!!!" topic every week, people dont have that much to say about them. Sorry if this sounds rather blunt, but thats just the way things are :frown:

Your site is really nice, and the planet graphics you have up are really cool! Best of luck in your projects ๐Ÿ™‚

Yeah, you need to take these risks...

Thanks for the compliments.

I have to say that after reading through your site properly, it looks like the plug will be excellent! You seem to have it all planned out nicely and the story certainly seems pretty expansive and damned cool!

Dont just accept the first offer of graphics you get for this plug-in. Get examples of a few people's work, and choose the best, because if this plug gets finished, it will be really great, and deserves great graphics to go with it ๐Ÿ™‚

Best of luck ๐Ÿ™‚

I'm afraid I'm not much on graphics, but I'd be happy to write descriptions or suchlike if you still need people for that.

I prefer to do most of the programming before getting any graphics done. Use placeholders from Nova or something until everything is all set (or close).

Well, I'm unoccupied currently, and I think I can manage graphics. I think your TC's story shows great potential, and I really like it. I definitely can't program, but I can probably write missions. So if you really need someone, just email me: elcheapocanadiano@yahoo.com

I can help with system place ment and spobs and so on
The only problem is that i would like to use the evone graphical editor for it but as I downloaded it about 2 months ago then forgot about it, now its disabled it self with only one use :frown: But i'll do it the hard way if i have to ๐Ÿ˜„
Email me if interisted davidwither88@yahoo.co.nz or click the email button ๐Ÿ™‚

I'm using my own spob graphics, but as far as everything else goes I am using Nova place holders. But I don't think you need to wait for the programming to be done, I just want to get as much going as possible so I can get the whole thing moving along quickly so it's released sooner and before myself and anyone else loses interest.

El Cheapo if you could email me some of your past graphics work, I'll see what I think of it.

And as far as descs go I will need many a proof reader. But I think I'm gonna wait a while before I get anyone to do stuff like that (as it is practically beta testing). Which reminds me i will need many a beta tester. But I will post on this later.

As far as EVONE goes I can't use it (I've got OS 8.6, it needs 9 to work) but I really want to do the system placement myself (I have a limited set of system making tools to work with) but I'm finding guessing the spob placement through Nova Tools really anoying.

For my own TC, I'm building the universe first, then doing everything I can before starting work on ships, dรผdes, and storyline missions.

I think it's most important to get a large portion of the universe done (systs and spobs + their descs) and then work on ships and dudes before the bulk of the universe is done because then you can test the plug yourself and see how everything fits. You can always do weaps first as well.

It's all a matter of preference though.

Use it when you start your beta test.

I'm not promising anything, but I'll watch how things go. If you get past 50% completion, I'll help, but on the condition that I contribute my own major story to the TC, if that is at all possible.

I'm also a master at completing about 200 systems in a week. (EVOGR) ๐Ÿ™‚

Visit the (url="http://"http://www.ambrosiasw.com/webboard/Forum10/HTML/005883.html#")Anglo-American Dictionary(/url), a well of priceless information!

Progress is estimated to be at around 35% - 45%

I am not including graphics in that estimation.

Graphics, are the most imporant, timeconsuming part of a plugin. the Dune TC that became vaporware became vaporware because the graphics were so time consuming and tedious.........

so 35%-45% translates to 12-15% if its a Total-Conversion

Try the hotpockets, they're breathtaking

thedecline... I know that name from somewhere.

What else do you do online?

Definatly true, but that is all part of it. Of course it's gonna take ages to do the graphics.

What do you mean what do I do? haven't you heard of thedecline.mirrorz.com?

Well it's sort of frozen at the moment while I work on EVN.

Ah... The things you find in salt mines, eh?

Yeah, you're right. The Decline site, I remember. Sorry for the criptic fuss, just couldn't put my finger on it.
