|Welcome to my webpage for Freespace 1 Conversions. Before you get to the meat of the page I thought I would let you know about a few particulars:
Due to the relative scarcity of Freespace 1 Mods, I doubt that there will be many ships to convert to PDF format and thus this webpage should be largely finished at the time of its release. Barring of course a change of layout and additional scenarios added to the respective section.
- Firstly this page is optimised for a screen resolution of 1024x768 pixels (the setting which my computer is currently on). In the event that your monitor has a lower resolution, some of the pages may not be displayed as intended. Foremost among these problems will be the ship descriptions pages, which all include a rather large image file of the subject ship. For any inconvience, I do apologise. However my primary objective in these ship-description pages was not specifically to provide fluff on the ship, but rather to give those unfamiliar with Freespace a greater connection with the ship through the hi-res image (which are found on "http://www.descent-freespace.com"). As a consequence, as I begin to change the other parts of the Knossos webpage to this new format, the Freespace 2 section may present a similar problem. But the Robotech page should not, due to the lack of quality hi-res images. I hope this will not be a problem for many, as I am under the impression that my computer is subpar by todays standards, hopefully most people will have sufficient resolution to view the pages correctly.
- Secondly, this webpage uses some custom fonts and you the viewer will require them to experience the page as designed. The main font is Trebuchet MS, which I believe is a standard Microsoft image and should come with most versions of windows. The second font is from Freespace, BankGothic Md BT and may be downloaded by clicking on the link.
As for the reasoning behind my conversions, most of the statistics I've done are based upon the formulas and reasoning used in my FS2 conversions. The ships herein are totally compatible with the later-generation ships. As such, some of the fighter weaponry of FS1 are pathetic by FS2 standards, particularly the early generation fighters, but they can be fun in their own way.
Should the long awaited Terran-Vasudan War mod for FS2 ever be released, I will no doubt have to set up new formulas to account for the even weaker weapon systems of that era, but I will cross that hurdle when and if I come to it.
But for now, thanks for visiting my webpage, and I hope you enjoy what I've done. If you have ideas, comments, flames, etcetera feel free to send them to me by clicking on 'contact' from the main page.
