...As soon as I posted that, I just HAD to go back and improve the head-shoulder proportions to give you more cropping leeway...

Compare these versions:

 

Barely touched the face this time, but she's a few more years older than the last try now.

You may praise me. :D

No scan lines?  That's legitimate creative choice, but you do want consistency, and the Union has scan lines - I taught ariete how to do them.

Well, some factions have better skype than others.   :D


EDIT: Well, I don't know the big deal with scan lines.

I'll reupload my Demarchists with scanlines next week. Sorry for setting a bad example, BU ;p

Sorry to not have gotten to this sooner; there were technical difficulties when I got back from supper yesterday.

Suggestions:

1) look around Modding and have a look at Green's thread about a Mars mod "Non TCM 'Red Marble'"  - also "A spontaneous community faction project" a related thread where I think I linked GeoModder's old Mars scenario, which I think we have in Downloads.  You may want to do your own thing, or pool efforts at least partially/avoid duplication of effort.  Both are valid creative choices, but in either case you might ought to do your homework and know what's been done/is in the works.

2) For those of us unfamiliar with the C2 mod, even 2heads like me who are too lazy to download, you could be telling a lot more about your plans if you desire more kibbitzing.  Prime the pump with more ideas to help kick-start the brain...

IDEAS

idea 1: SPs.  The weather paradigm has to go.  The human genome has been sequenced.  A better ending than trancendence.  Maybe a giant warp gate a lá Stargate

So end with a sequel ending?  "Yet more frontiers opening before us"?  A little tricky to make as satisfactory as an ending ending, but it could work. 

"My God; it's full of Kurt Rusell."



On the pooling efforts possiblity?  With Kil and/or me helping on the terrain textures for both (all three, depending) I hope everyone can accept that they may have no choice but to share that part...

hi matt, i'm happy you like the Union and you consider it to use in your mod but you download the old version with old leaderhead (the nwest leaderhead i like more, go to watch it)
obviously txt are so primitive because my english is not so good when i must express my self and it need a correction
just one thing, the union, in my view, went to replace peacekeeper, federation armada, wich i can define how my jewelry or my horse battle, went to replace spartans
the choise is your
i'can't vote because i've not yet civ2 and i can't test it but i open graphics files ... so simple but so nice

Mankind has been blind for thousands of years?for all of its history. We have come to a place whose wonders are a hundred-fold more amazing than anything on Earth. Around us is clear evidence of the will of a higher power. I bring the Vision to the blind eyes of men. I bring the Word to the deaf ears of men. I will make them see it. I will make them hear it.
