    Panzer unity

    Post by lockie on Wed Aug 19, 2015 11:46 am

    This is a new screen made on the engine "Unity". Landscape looks marvelous! Buildings, flora, especially cactus! Somebody told me that cactus should not be in the desert Cool
    Pz.IV looks fine and his camo is a very good done!

    Ha-ha, actually u showed me this blog ~two years ago, when told abt. engine "uinity" Smile Don't u remember?  Razz  And this is my second post, firstly I've mentioned it here:
    http://stasf2008.ephpbb.com/t276-panzer-elite-pp2-x-vehicle-pack-released
    Pz.IV looks great! (I was sure Pz.IV was made by Sidorov, coz he shared with me his model to have a look).
    And I see now it is possible to place a cactus in SF!

    Sidorov sent me exactly Pz.IVH 3D model Very Happy Texture at least "yellow camo" was made by whukid a "green" one was default(I've adjusted it also, coz it had too much "pink" color). The two texture for the Jagdpanzer was made by Maleshkin. I remember first Jagdpanzer appearing, coz I made a personal mission  for this spg "ugly duckling". There were no missions for Pz.VIH. First one was made by Deviator "cover the ferry" Cool


    Engine "unity" has a good perspective! Would be interested to see a soldiers with animation on some activity during the battle  Smile

    I should have qualified my statement by saying the tall cacti( it 's cacti not cactuses in English plural) that you see in Westerns do not grow in North Africa only in The Southern US or Mexico. I thought  you were talking about them.


    From what I gathered back then Sidorov is Mistwalker's actual name? I have been trying to contact him on the old forum but without success on a different issue..

    Donken wrote: the model is still 100% my creation =)
    When I asked Sidorov what the models he had made, he gave me a list with many units where there were: Pz.IVH, Tiger (except H1 made by Maleshkkin), TigerII, Panther A/D, Pz.III, JS-2, SU-152, ISU-122 and some other Very Happy
    Then he shared some models with me, like TigerI/II, Panther, PzIV... Unfortunately, all models (except Pz.IV) were lost, because of the HD malfunction. U had the same situation and know how bad it was.

    Yeah, the unity engine has soo many interesting features.
    Oh, yes. New features are always interesting! Especially soldiers animation, like "ragdoll" Cool bom

    From what I gathered back then Sidorov is Mistwalker's actual name?

    Yes, it is the same person. And I'm abt. to place more cactus(cacti) in the desert missions Very Happy
    Now I've evidence/picture from Donken.

    I talked to Mistwalker quite alot on skype untill about one year ago, then he disappeared for me as well.

    That's interesting! Did he tell you, at any time, why he left the forum and virtually abandoned his Steel Panzer Mod 2.0?

    Unity is a fine engine but I personally think the Cry engine from Crytek is better and it's free for use by modders.

    If only Steel Fury could have the same resolution as the screen you posted... well it would be an extraordinary step forward for SF.

    Much like the very sharp and clear image resolution IL-2 46 now has using the "High Resolution / True Color Textures Mod" package over the resolution original game.  





    Donken... I really like that screen you posted of the cactus covered halftrack.  Very cool! Laughing

    He got bored and was going to work on other projects!

    I don't understand this guy. He does all that hard work on a good mod and just walks away because he is bored?????Shocked cyclops

    This is really surprising from a guy who was anal retentive about everything not accurate or historical , who had the sense of humour of an AK-74 and who could quote 60 pages of the  f......g secret Soviet archives with every comma and semi colon or read backwards in his sleep the blueprints of every Soviet tank ever made. scratch Don't get me wrong ; in my own way I liked the guy once I got by his piss-vinegar charm, endearing sense of superiority and warm Stalinist personality....

    Woofie; did the high res pack for IL2 come from the developers or is it a user-made mod?

    All in all the graphics in SF are not bad. Except for the infantry; the animation is jerky and the body proportions could be better.

    frinik... did the high res pack for IL2 come from the developers or is it a user-made mod?

    Here are the credits for the mod package.

    Credits:

       HD Texture DLLs (il2_core.dll, il2_corep4.dll etc.) by carsmaster.
       True Color Texture Mod by SAS~Storebror.
       Sample HD skins by Buhli, RDDR and SAS~GJE52.
       Original game files by 1C/Maddox.


    http://www.sas1946.com/main/index.php/topic,42744.0.html

    Yes the overall graphic's for SF are decent and you could say the same for IL-2 at the time. But IL-2 in my opinion was vastly improved with the new  "HD Texture DLLs &  True Color Texture Mod".

    Quote... It enables you to use Textures with HD resolutions (up to 4096 x 4096 pixels now) and true color.

    I could have setup some IL-2 screens to show the difference... but just recently I lost one of my older external IL-2 HD's and I have been slowly working in order to retrieve the IL-2 data/files from it, as the HD still works for brief short spurts of time. Have the best part of it saved now now. Neutral

    Have to say that the recent widescreen fix mod by will73 has greatly improved SF with the 16:9 widescreen, that gives SF a fresh new look. Also must add a thank's and a big hand for his work on this mod. Very Happy

    The work that has gone into these trees and other flora for the maps are another SF upgrade that has really added a new fresh look to SF and the maps used for the missions during game play.

    For a good example just play a stock game & mission. And then play the same stock mission with the latest STA upgrades added to the game and SF looks very much like a different game. Very Happy

    There is new screen with Pak40.

    Landscape looks good, there many models of flora. Some notes:
    - perhaps foliage is too much green
    - artifacts on the ground texture
    - camo Pak40 should be in desert color
    Personally, I like the shadows. Cool Just wonder, does a shadow change their orientation during the mission?

    Donken, it would be interesting to know what the main conception of the game? Will it be another clone of "War thunder"(only online) or smth. similar to "Steel blaze"(tactics with tanksim elements) or may be it is based on the "Steel fury" (accent to the scripts)? I see that theater of war will be desert (Africa)?

    Lockie I think what they have in mind is a simulator along the lines of T34 versus Tiger. Murkz and his team worked a long time to improve the MP aspect of TvsT to no avail as the game withered and died( at least the MP part).

    If only Graviteam and G5( the Swedish-owned) company that made TvsT) had collaborated instead of being rivals....We would have had a wonderful WW2 sim with huge maps and MP, excellent physics and ballistics and stable. The irony is that some of the guys who worked on TvsT worked for Graviteam as well and had assisted in the making of T72 Balkans on Fire. Which is a game I highly recommend to those who wish to learn the ropes of Steel Armour .Very tough and challenging simulator game unfortunately the scope of the missions is rather dull and the graphics are very dated.

    I think if people are looking into the ancestor of Steel Armour Blaze of War they need no longer look past T72 Balkans on Fire Also called Iron Warriors. Some of the guys who worked for Russian game maker IDDK( which also assisted G5 in making TvsT) went on to start Graviteam.

    It's a all a loop!

    I'd say that a new game will be a mix between Blaze steel (because Donken had experience with this game, he managed to implement Tiger from SF) and Panzer Elite, coz it's a classic game with a great opportunities to control the units. Smth. tells me there won't be MP.

    Well all bets are off. I still think TvsT is what they have in mind. Time will tell.AS for the MP probably not because you need a lot of support for that.

    Then what kind of improvements supposed  to be there to compare with TvT? I know TvT has a very poor AI. Let's say, in Steel Fury AI is equal to "one idiot", then AI in TvT is equal to ~"ten idiots".
    But in case that Panzer unity has number of "idiots" equal to SF, then what exactly will be improved in the scripts? In Steel blaze (same as in Achtung star) there are many scripts. May be 10 times more than in SF, but they are not available for the user during mission creating, coz there are no missions. User can use scripts(commands) only in the real time(almost in the same manner as in SF) and also during one move of the operation(phase?) at the strategy/tactics level or whatever they called. I guess engine Unity has a many ways how to realize the gameplay.

    TvsT 's engine is 8 years old. Unity engine is very recent and much, much better in every area. As for improvements I don't know.May be Murkz could comment?
