Ever wondered what happens when you mix a 20 year old engine and cutting edge material generation tech? ­čĄö I guess we're about to find out...

Project Novo is listed in the Credits of PLEASE READ ME.HTML found in the main directory of HU V9.

Then it's increasingly likely that some aspects were used for HU  Nice spot Wombat and Shakealeg!

looks great wombat! I really love the sky!

@apex, fair enough about the mipmapping bit. it's quite a funny little effect though :P

what fog settings would you reccomend?

It's hard to believe this mod is nearly finished! final tweaks and redundancy removal is starting.

A "funny little effect", eh? Tsk. I think it makes a world of difference for visual depth and realism, but hey... <_<

Very difficult to simply recommend a fog setting. Aim for something that makes the scene appear natural. There's a lot of trial and error involved, and with some maps in Heroes Unleashed it took me days to come up with satisfactory fog color, density, height, etc., so just imagine how much time I spent on all 175 maps (so far). :sweating:

Hehe, maybe your mod is not "nearly finished" after all. :P

haha, that's what I meant apex XD mipmapping does do a lot in terms of depth, but on some textures it doesn't look right and in a sense adds a little too much depth (like on the water textures and in the menu.)

and advice taken, i'll play around with it, just realised that i got my skybox the wrong way round. :P

Skyboxes are a pain, reskinning them definitly isnt any fun. I created mine in 3d max, The fast way works but is a bit tedious in creating. I also tried creating an entire scene (i.e. how crysis creates its skybox in game) Amazing results and completely seamless but it takes a work of art to create it.

oh by the way yours looked really good to me ZeeAlex. The trees in the background add an interesting effect! :)

I'm going to try and upload another taster, could you pretty please tell me If there are any issues at all as I forgot what I needed to do next. thanks ;)

Oh and Project Novo is now pretty much complete in terms of content! it's filesize is 3.3GB on disk. so please be warned it may take a bit to extract.

Awesome mod, Zeealex, really - it is beautiful. Great job. :)

Also, I have got a suggestion about improving one thing - I saw that the flags located in .rsb files called m10_flagmisc.rsb and M15_Building02Bottom.rsb are wrong - they depict flag of the Lithuanian Soviet Socialist Republic: http://upload.wikime...ian_SSR.svg.png This flag is not used since 1988 (and the game is happening in 2008), also this flag in Moscow makes no sense. So my suggestion is to change the flag in Vilnius to flag of Lithuania (http://upload.wikime...thuania.svg.png), so there will be two of them, and to change the flag in Moscow to flag of the Russian Federation (http://upload.wikime..._Russia.svg.png), since it is used by Russians in-game anyway. Also - those flags were wrong in the original game as well, so it is not your fault. ;)

Of course this is only my suggestion - this mod is good anyway. :) Please, keep up the great work. :)

Regards. :)

Well i think that it would be best to keep the sovjet flag BECAUSE, that those ultranationalitst in the game will have the old soviet empire back, why hang up a flag of the new russian empire when they wont the old back?

@ Zeealex: you're welcome. :) I have got some more suggestions/ideas if you want. :)

@ teppe: I proposed the flag of the Russian Federation, because Russian soldiers in-game are using it on their uniforms. However, I agree with that Soviet thing, but I think that they should use the flag of the Soviet Union then (http://upload.wikime...t_Union.svg.png) instead of using the flag of the Lithuanian Soviet Socialist Republic. Also, I think that this flag (flag of the Soviet Union) should be used only in Moscow, and in Vilnius there should be a second flag of Lithuania. But again, those are only my suggestions.

I agree witn Teppe (my 2 cents), both in Moscow and Vilnius.

So maybe there should be an old flag of the Lithuanian Soviet Socialist Republic in Vilnius (since the Russian Ultranationalists were trying to re-establish the old Soviet republics, so they hanged this flag there), and a flag of the Soviet Union in Moscow (since they re-established the old Soviet government in Russia)?
