Feature Requests / about invisible models in menu and "menutransform"
« on: December 19, 2008, 09:34:08 pm »
I just investigated the source of some objects (like the MP) being invisible in some menus (like the inventory).

And I rather quickly found the menutransform definitions in models.ufo. It seems to make these items visible again one could add appropriate menutransform definition. I'd do that, but I don't realy know how to find the proper values.

I also tried to find out why only some items need those definitions. So I compared the pistol with pistol2(MP) and guess what, I couldn't find a difference, even switching their models, didn't changed that, pistol showed the new model and MP was still invisible.
So at the moment it seems the only thing that makes the MP invisible seems to be the fact that you call it an MP...

Has anyone more info about this bug? It's realy annoying because you can't use the invisible items.

Design / about the aircrafts.

Over the discussion about  TrashMan's Starchaser design I have taken a look at the interceptors and I noted some strange details about the Saracen. The other are quite fitting, but this one is in my eyes not suited to be an interceptor.

It is based on the Blackbird, which was mainly a spy plane. The high speed made it difficult to attack, by SAM for example. But the low maneuverability made it unsuited for dogfighting. it couldn't really follow the movement of the target. And the design of the Saracen looks even less maneuverable.

Am I getting that right? My knowledge about planes isn't that great.

I don't want to suggest removing done work, but maybe there should be another medium range plane at the beginning that semms better as a fighter, or is Dragon  available soon enough?
The Saracenb on the other hand could be used as a special plane, maybe like its predesessor as a mobile radar unit or something.

The wiki said some music is not on the svn, because of licensing issues an to get it from the homepage.
Unfortunately id didn't specify where on the homepage to get it an sofar I haven't found it.

Could somebody point me in the right direction?
