Hey guys, I was just wondering what kind of plugins I can make, as I'm starting to take up an interest in plugin making. I like that fact that we are getting off track from ships all the time (not that they aren't cool as hell) but we are starting to become more inventive, and I like that. Anyhow, I was wondering if any of you guys would find any use in like a Television or computer overlay? You'd see the frame, and maybe a few buttons, but the middle would be clear for you to place your footage. If you guys think it'd be the least bit useful, I'll do that today, if not, post your thoughts on other overlays you'd like to see, and I'll do those too. Thanks again

How about some overlays for like spy scopes and binoculars? I'm talking like technoey ones where there is like a flourescent green/red/whatever color overlay with different things and graphics popping up. Maybe I'm talking about a HUD (Heads Up Display) instead? Think of like a first person video game and that's what I'm talking about. Also how bout some HUDs/overlays for ship/airplane moniters? Like in some Star Wars fan films where ships are being tracked and stuff... that'd be cool.

Yeah, that'll be v. useful, Hajiku. You could also try to pick up on the Darth Maul binoculars idea that seems to have slipped from everyone's minds smile

Sounds good. How about you get some overlays for the inside of all those ships...like out of the window, or behind the cockpit. I know there are some already, but they are all from ww1/2 planes, and not the futureistic space craft that are so widley avaliable.

P.S. Why is it in the picture you have of the Alam dv comunity, you look like a sorta slug thing?

From what I saw of your brick wall plugin it wasn't tileable. But I havn't downloaded it yet. Maybe if it was it would be more useful...
P.S.What did people think of my shadows plugin
