Thread: Sneak Peek - Surface Navigation

  1. #1

    Sneak Peek - Surface Navigation


    NOTE: Frontier Developments have refused the licence request for this application. Development has been suspended indefinitely.



    Development has finally hit a point where I could put a bit of a sneak peek video together. There's still a long way to go but I really wanted to show some of what I have been working on.

    I apologise for the length of the video. It's my first major attempt at video production - something I am clearly not great at. I wanted to have a bit of fun with it and I may have got a little carried away.

    BEST VIEWED IN FULL SCREEN
    PLEASE NOTE: It's difficult to really get the proper detail of what I'm trying to preview while viewing the videos embedded in this page. I would suggest viewing them at full screen (at 1080p quality).




    ADDED:

    This is a pic of the navigation panel:




    Here are some other (related) racing videos:

    Wow! Just WOW!
    I was puzzled by your sig there for a while and now it's making sense.
    Without ruining it for those who haven't yet watched the vid:
    While I was watching the first feature, I thought of the second thing that was featured in this vid and then it appeared. Blew my mind away. Then it just got better and better.
    I cannot even begin to describe how impressive this is.
    Excellent work!

    OMG! This is insane!
    INSANE! INSAAAAAANE!

    *Hit in the head by the wife*

    Ok ok, so... I know it's silly but- you remember the hollow squares making up the "corridor" the ship had to fly in for landing in a designated spot in Alien? (can't find any good Youtube clip sorry).

    I'd LOVE to see that too.
    And maybe chnge the Overlay color.

    But other than that.

    TAKE MY MONEY!

    This Mr Khelder is a very very nice tool. And it remembers every planet and land mark ? How ever many you record ?
    a game changer I recon. This goes beyond what Frontier seems to be doing with bookmarks from the info I have seen so far.

    And here was me last night thinking I'm clever achieving being able to play and stop specific songs and albums via voice attack.

    I'm sorry to be the one to have to tell you this, but this OVERLAY you've made/thought out is absolutely excellent. There are several things wrong with your video production though, but you know the most obvious points. I will say this though. A title to your thread and video that actually hinted at the content you want to share would have been a good idea. Just my 2 credits.

    Glad to see that you been spending your leave on something creative.

    That type of surface navigation is definitely what currently is missing in ED.

    Please have a good look at this FD.

    Impressive work you have done so far, thumbs up! But something wonders me about it, where from did you get the real time flight data?

    Sorry. It's been years since I've seen Alien and I only own Aliens on DVD (awesome movie). I can't remember any landing sequences from it.

    Technically, the overlay colour can be set to anything. I was playing around with different colours to test contrast against different surfaces. Snow can be tricky. I ended up sticking with green. It matched the colour of things like old F-16 HUD displays I was looking at online.
