Export your final image as .bmp (yes you heard that right) and convert it with DXTbmp (its free) into dds.I hven't found a way around when using gimp. Gimp is able to handle dds correctly, and has advantages in several areas. Being free is the most important one, but it may be good to use Photoshop in case you want to edit textures manually. AFTER applying them in 3ds Max, that is
Hy Ice Dragon,
first: the ships and stations you have provided look really magnificent,great job
have I the permission to send your ship (Cygnus Defender Tenes I've downloaded from Sifimeshes.com) to Killerog in this forum?
He works just on a BSG Mod for X3 Albion Prelude and need the permission of you for using your models
Help us this is the last BSG Mod where is WORK IN PROGRESS.
Because: BSG CRY OF GODS no updates or news,release etc
BSG RISE OF CYLONS the same
Your other models (Stations,ships) here, look so wonderful, does the chance he pass them may also use?
You are the last hope, which I and the community in this topic:http://forum.egosoft.com/viewtopic.php?t=319495
with your Battlstars made by you, can fly please help us
edit: sorry for my english
well after months of trying m8 i gave up on this it seems they are no longer intrested i have made up 2 cylon base stars and afew other ships but no messages for MONTHS so im now bouncing round looking to make them into basic xsp format for my own pleasure
At times there were only 1 or two people working on the mod. My Dad died nearly 2 yrs ago - so I now take time to care for my mum. Got three kids a wife and a full time teaching job where I am head of department..
Tbh.. If all the Bsg people on Egosoft actually worked together we would have had a brilliant mod. Just feels like people want to do their own thing..
Currently I'm waiting to see what X-Rebirth brings to the table..
If this excuses I did not know.
My inquiry for the permission to the use of the really nice models had to do your work on the mod ( BSG CRY GODS) not badly,
acts to me suffer once more.
Sry Ellfin , but one of my biggest ones wishes it is, with Assaultstar forseti, Cygnus defender etc. to fly in X3 Albion Prelude
we all have r/w issues m8 sorry to hear about yours lifes a biatch then it dry humps your whole existance (trust me i know been thrugh the ringer myself too)
my suggestion is if we can make them into .xsp format then mod the ships we have into any version of x3 we so choose it would be far easyer and achiveable than a whole mod and we can work at a nominal pace i am no good at porting in ships and scripting but i can however make ships in spk format for tweeking in later
i persoanly dont have AP and i wont be buying it anytime soon as 90% of the modded ships i use are x3tc but it would be nice if we had a all in one .xsp mod adder that would just drag an drop into any version of x3
if you so choose to make .xsp formats of these ships pls reply here and ill release mine again (that and a few ships need fixing in .xsp format the valkarie still hasnt got working guns lol) if not then ill delete any links i have to this and wish you all well and ty for all the hard work time and effort... and all the fish lol
this is a great idea to convert the ships in XSP for X3 tc.
You can go working on mod if you have time but please please
publishes a few ships (for example: Cygnus Defendeder, Assaultstar Forseti, THE RESURRECTION SHIP,new Viper types, your new Basestars and the Huge Battlestar from page 21 here ( Picture: Tauron Defence HQ beside Pegasus))
