Hmmm.

I don't really see why they're harvesting the bodies and then keeping them intact, supplanting with cybernetics. The CNS is already completely fried, and you might as well melt it down into raw goop to rebuild all the cellular damage...

That's the part that really gets me. Ok, they're harvesting bodies, what in hell is actually making them usable as-is rather than remade?

Drones in People Suits.

maybe, the brain isn't what is doing the thinking, in a Drifter humanoid form.

Maybe it's the cyberdoodads.

Agree. But why bother with the people suits?

Lagging Behind

Morwen's Law:
1) The number of capsuleer women who are bisexual is greater than the number who are lesbian.
2) Most of the former group appear lesbian due to a lack of suitable male partners to go around.
3) The lack of suitable male partners can be summed up in most cases thusly: interested, worth the air they breathe, available; pick two.

I might be the only vfx nerd in this thread so can I just say: holy shit the volumetric smoke on that dead Raven looks amazing. I know it's likely composited, but I don't care.

I have been gushingly pointing all the smoke and debris in those ship kills out to my friends.

So, having watched this at last, I'm pretty much with the YouTube commentators: say what you like, this is pretty neat. I'm not necessarily "hyped," but I am engaged.

This community gets way too bittervet for me sometimes.


About the Raven graphics: aren't there hints going back a ways that suggested they meant to update ship explosions at some point and maybe just never got it to work to their satisfaction? I think there was Empyrean Age wallpaper that had a Raven breaking up almost exactly like that one.

There are models of broken ships in the game files, but they aren't meant to be used outside of mission environments. What happened here is they took that broken Raven model and reattached it, then keyframed the pieces to fall off in the expected fashion. All the fire, smoke, sparks, and tiny bits and pieces would come from software like X-Particles or Particular. Then you just need to composite the pieces in After Effects, Nuke, or Composite.

It's also possible to create the whole thing in Maya, C4D, etc., but that's decidedly not how they're doing it and frankly might even take more time because the render time between iterations would be unnecessarily long. It's best practice to break things up into pieces. (See what I did there?)
