People using Windows Media Player may require DivX codex to be installed to see these videos. I used the Media Player Codec Pack. Do not install any toolbars or other browser addons. Only the codecs are required. The videos can also be downloaded so that it can be played with a different program. Shame on WordPress for not releasing their integrated video player to the public!
I was reading some posts in the official UQM Forum, when Amiga Nut reminded me about a project that he started to replace the ship spin videos in the 3DO version of Star Control II.
In the 3DO version, if a player presses the info button while selecting a ship, it will play a video of the ship spinning in 3D briefly explaining the abilities of that ship. Unfortunately, due to copyright issues, they are not supported in UQM.
With Amiga Nut’s 3D videos, they can be replaced by a free, higher-quality alternative. Some of his work is shown below and look very promising. He’s got a lot of work ahead of him, and perfection is a slow and steady progress.
I can’t wait to see the rest. Thanks Amiga Nut for reminding me about this. Keep up the good work.
