The terrain looks nice, but I think - having seen now a few of the maps you're planning for this - that you ought to take a look at the maps that are the most exciting to play on in Mass Effect and see what makes them fun. Right now you've got a lot of terrain-only-driven maps, and they look very void of internal diversity.

I agree, and while I'm not making any maps like that, I do know there are at least 2 maps as you suggest in the works. One produced by Marth and Agentsmith#38, and another by The Nasal Abyss. The latter of which is more in the conceptual stage, as he's busy making unit models for now.

I am personally making only one map for this mod, it is half terrain,and half interiors, and technically not a Mass Effect location either.

Thanks, and ohhh boy, don't you worry, I have a good number of Mass Effect-exclusive maps in line for production, with one already currently having assets in development. Right now I've only really been showcasing maps from the Sol Map Pack into which this mod will be integrated.

It's been a while since I've posted on GT.. I've been watching everything from the shadows. I should probably stop that because I find it quite creepy myself and I should start posting again.

Anyway!

Very nice work on those textures for Io, Marth!

And thank you for those who complimented the weapon models :)

@Mav I'll be making a Facility for Io. I'll be trying my best to give it a "Mass Effecty" feel to it. That should change the gameplay around for Io quite a bit.

Oh, it isn't just in the conceptual stage anymore. ;) Still busy with those player models though.

I concur with AQT, it's all coming together nicely. I really like the M-100's subtle trail. :)

Thanks a lot, guys!

I completely reworked the audio bus hierarchy. Now, whenever the ordnance from the M-100 or the ML-77 explodes near you, all of the in-game sounds - music, weapon sounds, everything - fades into nearly full attenuation, or weakening, for a second.

The new effects look good, but could you please use more compressed images? (the screenshots took a few minutes to load with my slow internet)

:thumbs: I have absolutely no idea how you did that.

Thanks! I'll post a conceptual video sometime after I get it fully working. :)


EDIT:

I'll reveal it as soon as I create my Complete Sound Guide (TM). ;)


EDIT2:

Argh! I cannot seem to get the audio busses working the way I want them to, so I've decided I'll put that feature on hold for now...

In other news, I just invented space combat! :o
