I hope there isn't any problem with that ^^

lol no worries, im just baffled because this was a original ship (to my knowledge) and if it was put into a mod before hand and the person who made it is passing it off as one of thier own creations...... leaves me totally stumped XD

Very Good Nono. You seem to have a Knack for making things look Dramatic.

Just Found Somthing out... you can use Plot Scripts for THN Screens. I.e. Destruction of Freeport 7, Assault on LCI mitchell... However, Trent doesn't show in Any of them, and more often than not the lighting doesn't work.
The Attack on Sprauge is pretty Awesome. Oh, and most don't work when decompressed.
Does anyone know of a tool that would allow us to recompress them?

Lol thanks Ruppet
have you tried to fix them using the FLScan "THN fixing" feature? I never used it, but maybe it could repair the decompressed files… just an idea…

Very good job Ruppet.You are a master.Fell free to show pics of scene u are making for me

Some of the Original Scenes. (Sprage, M13, Etc.) Cannot be Decompressed without Massive Errors. They Function, but very Badly.

It's an old problem, for some reason Fled Thorn makes a mess of most of the bigger THN's, Accushot added the THN repair feature to FLScan 1.3 to help those of us who were messing about with them.

Ok, After Cheese had an Idea about a Gas Miner in a Planet's Atmosphere, I Kinda Experimented with Mist FX a lot. after much Frustration and Kicking of my PC, I Put it aside, and made a Low-Orbit Base.
The Idea Here is that the Kusari Navy are Moblizing, and one Destroyer Phases in... (The Timing was Impossilbe, but I got it in the End)
Theres a Meteor Shower in the Upper Atmosphere as well... If you look Carefully in the Second Screen you can Just About Make it out. It's Easier to see when Moving. For those who want to know what FX I Used for it, the FX name Is: <pre><font size=1 face=Courier>rtc_shootingstars_emit</font></pre>
It's Used in the Crete Ambience Script, but you only see it when you take off... Combined with rtc_Shootingstars, It Turns Green. Enjoy.

I took a few Screens I'd Like to Post a Video, but as WT is Under a Rather Large Veil of Secrecy Right Now, I Won't.

My far most faourite is the Dimentional Rift startup THN in CrossFire...

Post Sun Jul 22, 2007 2:20 am

Never Seen It... Could you Post some Screens?

Post Sun Jul 22, 2007 3:27 am

Here are so many beautiful screens, so I couldnt resist to show some of ours to give you some ideas what is possible ( EvolvedMod ).
I wrote some stories for the menu screen.
The first is the destruction of Honshu through a faction and the nomads ( was a RP-event )
Firing the deathly torps
and some hits at the planet, the beginning of the desaster

The second is just a destruction of a station through nomads and the battle against these intruders:
The peaceful start
The entering of the nomads behind a bs
and the fight and demolition of the attackers
These are only some shots from the whole story.
The difficulty is the handling of the coordinates and the effects. I did a long search after some good tools but didnt fount anything beside the thn-decompiler, which is only the first steps.
The longest of the stories has a script with 34341 lines...
