Hi Everyone

I think most of the major changes are done, I think. Now I will be just doing small stuff to improve security and hopefully make everything look better. :)

Pioneer Musical Appreciation Society

edited 1:37AM in Pioneer
i had almost interrupted the "city terrain blending" thread.



then i redrawn.

i can post that here



I LOVE TO SEE SUCH THINGS GET DISCUSSED HERE.



please let the guys do their job, don't interrupt such "tech" threads where they can do some brainstorming.




i like to enforce such, because i feel it's "glasnost".



if you have a comment or a idea to that as non developer especially or as not that experienced one as those two guys i.e., keep out! please ;)

you can read it and open a new thread if you have some questions or thoughts to that, even when you only like to say "cool", "i like it", "right on".

i know they will notice you, if you name the thread properly. (i have a Q or a idea to this and that)

if they don't read it personally i also know brainetta will port that to them.



we can fool around elsewhere here :mrgreen:



yes, it's me the "thread polluter" telling this, i have to be careful myself not to do so...

often i have a comment or a idea to something and it burns like fire to express that.

but like i said open simply a new thread.



you are allowed to fool around here ;)

    I think that's a good idea Gernot, most of the time what those guys (like yourself) talk about in those tech threads is way above my head! <img class="emoji" src="/forum/resources/emoji/lol.png" title=":lol:" alt=":lol:" height="20" /> I usually just sit back and wait to see the results 8-)



    Um.... :? ...........Gernot, while I am here can I ask you something? I asked in the Frontier Forum but I guess you missed it, anyways it's about the Sidewinder. As you might recall, this is my favourite ship in the game however, I feel the performance of it in Pioneer is way below what it was in the original Frontier, 20g main thrusters, 10g on the retros. Is there any chance you could create a new script that would give me performance specs closer to the original and a healthy increase in range too? Oh, and could I add a bit of a cheeky request if you could be bothered, a black ship with shark's teeth would be nice but honestly the existing textures are totally fine. I was just trying to see what the J Miner's Revenge would be like in Pioneer :oops:

    I spent many long hours in that little ship in Frontier carving my way across the galactic map and would love to continue that adventure in Pioneer. 8-)

    first,

    geraldine :D



    i will please me to do so (fixing the specs for your longings), seriously

    for the range i will see what i can do, it depends mainly on the hull mass and since alpha20 also on the size of the tank for the propellant.

    i know that we have far heavier ships in pioneer rather in frontier, i already feel comfortable with most (since hullmass is reduced by the propellant), but i understand you well.



    (yet another black ship, very unreasonable, isn't it brianetta? ;) )

    perhaps i will make a similar 2nd skin, why not, even when all softs for the mac i have actually didn't deserve my needs to make textures much.

    the jaws i can copy from the conny, if that is good enough?

    perhaps i can make some better, the ones for the conny are some sort of a "cheat".



    sorry for my absence on frontier forum.

    keeping the models in shape, working on a few new, foolin' around here and sometimes even let my mind go astray in german forums...

    i know i also promised to work on FFED3D (or a similar approach) again, but i'm only one person and ideas i guess i have enough to keep 5 busy. :mrgreen:



    @cody

    that's a ear charmer, reminds me of Kansas, right? i like it.

    it sounds a bit like "dust in the wind" but that's fine with me.



    on the other hand, it didn't needs much to please me, just a guitar, a harmonica and some backup and off i go...







    and some make something more "sophisticated" out of it ;)







    i like the first clip better, it's cool, it seems they play in a manufactory or storage, you can hear occasional hammerings, someones working...

    well, we have guys here in switzerland they make music even with a milking machine :lol:

    i thought we just started...





    can't help i love the 60's and i love the beatles, blame me

    Heh... I saw The Beatles live in '63/'64 (not sure which now... the memories are fading), and I still love them today!



    Do you have music sessions on the Pioneer IRC? We have them once or twice a month on the Oolite IRC.

    They changed everything. They did to music what Elite did to computer gaming :D



    The 60s were so cool I wish I could have experienced it, speaking of which, could this be the coolest ship ever seen to date in Pioneer? 8-)

    thank you geraldine (big heart, no smiley for such ;) )



    i was already about to change my nick to spirit66



    a bit pathetic, but that suits me better, i love the initial idea, not especially '66, the initial idea of everything, the crucial spark.



    a small playlist,



    Rheingold - Dreiklangdimensionen (it's about the relation of colors, spatial imagination & sound)

    Paso Doble - Computerliebe (describes to me well the initial feeling of the 80's, discovering computers and what can be done, incl. spending to much time with it)

    The Who - Put the Money Down / Naked Eye

    eric burdon & war - nights in white satin



    something else that moves me, so i write that down here,



    a statement

    most of bad reputation the grateful dead have, is (of course) the name and that a lot of people think that something occult or mystic is about that, however, unfortunatly, i know that to much of the "deadheads" have been trapped by this.

    but it's only playing with possibilities, only a illusion like the pictures i posted from M.C.Escher, a lot know this fact and enjoy it, other look a bit suspicious on it.



    have peace :mrgreen:



    @cody

    it's cool to meet one who likes this space shoot 'em up like i do, i was a little bit a outsider because of that amongst my "hippie friends", but to me it's only a game like chess, chess is a game of war, no one can say that's not true, but it's a game. i'm bad in chess, that's why i play pioneer (FE2 back then) :lol:






    don't ask me why i don't go and shout that to the people like eric did, obviously i'm only to lazy to learn all the lyrics.
  • edited 1:37AM
    @geraldine



    your souped up sidie

    i guess that reflects more or less FE2, i feel a bit overpowered for the engines if i take 24g for a fully ladden ship.

    http://spacesimcentral.com/downloads/Pi ... -04-23.zip

    it uses the common specs, a alternative specification comes along with it which reflects a very moderate thruster power i would like for all ships.

    :o oh, it's forbidden to hear in switzerland "the ace of spades" :lol:

    sometimes it really surprises me, no, it makes me wonder...

    in two or three occasions i was also notified by youtube that my clip contains material which is probably copyright protected.

    1st. i would like to know where? (i'm only curios) and probably is anyway a bit loose defined.



    @skodyn

    "tangerine dream", i nearly forgot they existed,

    I nearly forgot myself, just saw the album on youtube, I used to listen to them all the time when I lived near Celle in the late 70's, and another good one at the time was Vangelis (my favourite being Albedo 0.39).

    thanks, friends for all the beautiful music, yeah it's good to share music



    "...they can't take away our music, no they can't..."



    thanks even for the "mac" geraldine, it will take me sometime to get warm with fleetwood mac without peter green... a prejudice of mine you can say.

    but you can help me ;)

    with LZ, you never fail, they are "the past masters", blues in it's "prehistoric" (pre to recorded voice) style played in the manner of the 70's. lot of weird psychedelic attitude but in the end, simple blues, simply great, to me. it might not please the ear of trained musicians, but it pleases mine, again and again and again...

    can't stop loving rock&roll, it's like a drug and even a burdon (with and without eric :lol: ) it's sometimes NOT FUNNY if you have to dance, you might not like to, but have to, every bone starts to shiver and move, it can be a burdon, really.



    i guess some people see me in the train or on the street must think i'm crazy, steady whipping to the music, almost dancing, sometimes really dancing in train stations or wherever i am. but hey, perhaps i'm only listening to "Bill Haley" or "Jelly Roll Morton" which can be surprising to listen to, especially in a tram in zurich (or any city) and suddenly when they play "Mr. Jelly Lord", the tram start's to get very slow just right for the slow sluggish beat of the tune. coincidence right, but what a cool coincidence.



    vangelis, yes i left aside to, perhaps even prejudice, i have a problem, the problem is everything that's (was) mainstream repelles me. countless artists i misunderstood their music because of the hype, vangelis is one of them i guess, everybodys back when i was a little younger hailed vangelis, of course i had to say "nah, i don't like it".

    besides, this was my teddy times (17) and i was not "allowed" to listen to something else rather the finest and rarest rockabilly and rock&roll (elvis i never liked back then, as comparison. while today i love to copy his moves even to modern music, it works).

    remnants from these days are still inside me and a love of mine was "Restless" a british rockabilly trio, like the stray cats, but i said no mainstream please :D, and even yet like the stray cats, different, far cooler, jazzier (if something like that exists), minimal rockabilly one could say.



    it seems, after checking a few others, like the album this song is from is the best they ever made, style is perfect imo.





    this one goes to "noflag tom" and has of course guided me from on childhood, even when i perhaps wasn't listening or didn't knew the band well, but they was on air everyday, they was present in every jukebox (A1 on the jukebox?, a different member, yes)







    more "side-trips",

    really i don't believe in magic, but it seems i have a special affinity to machines.

    like george in yellow submarine when the tiny tiny motor was shown to him and he said "that's the motor? let me porouse it" he burned his finger and the motor was broken totally :lol:

    last weekend i was out in a pub, on the way home i had to get me a ticket from the machine, that thing seemed to be broken and plotted randomly destinations on the screen, broke down and showed off the next destination or whatever service this machine offers, e.g. prepaid value cards.

    i already heard one in the background "no chance man, it's broken", but i kept on tapping on the touchscreen... and suddenly the proper destination and all settings was entered, randomly you can say (destination, class, date) my words: "oh yeah, give it to me baby!", i only had to hit OK, the screen was still flickering heavy, but it worked, i had a ticket.

    geraldine, skodyn, cody, who ever, what have we done wrong?



    why we still stuck in this dilemma?

    hasn't it been told often enough?

    not loud enough?



    is there something we can do?

    something we forgot?

    something we can't see?







    "look there are blue meanies arriving in the vacinity of this theatre"

    "what can we do?"

    "i know something we can do - singing"

    "a one, a two, a three..."





    well, perhaps we only have to kick on the crickles that old man wears, maybe he starts to walk again then...



    it's still good to shock people, here i am, look at me, the living dead (rock&roll), any problems with that? (yes, we have a problem with that, we can't do like you do. not my problem...)

    mr. rock&roll loved it to hang out with the punks. ha, they respected and understood me well, some quite bright people i contacted back then.

    i guess more intelligent people rather i ever met in switzerland, many spent nights with discussions about "ceasars beard" and drinking vast amounts of (stolen) beer.

    "look here he comes, mr. rock&roll", (the long haired version) i had to smile, doing a little dance and everybody was feelin' right.
