Monar Veloth by UndyingNephalim Monar Veloth by UndyingNephalim
Click here to see the detail up close: [link]

"The followers looked up and beheld the face of Monar Veloth, He of many faces. They saw their fathers, and their fathers' fathers, and their fathers' fathers' fathers, until there was none but he who is father of all fathers. And the followers wept and praised Monar Veloth."

A stained glass portrayal of Zevestivan religious figures and icons that can be found in Sigma. Cathedrals you build while playing as them will display various randomized stained glass scenes like this one on them, though this one in particular only appears on Soviak Kolari, the Zevestivan Church that orbits their homeworld.

It was really fun creating this stained glass piece, and a challenge to create something that evoked feelings of medieval styled depictions while keeping it distinctly alien. I really look forward to making the rest of these.

Sigma and all related material *UndyingNephalim

I don't want to leave one of those single word "wow" type comments or fav+run, but have no idea what else to say :P

Ah, I've loved your stained glass pieces. How are you going to implement the random scenes? Misusing FO's registry feature?

I'll probably be using a replaceweapon that triggers right when the station is done being built. I think the registry only puts text on an object.

Sounds good to me. I'll admit I haven't looked into it, I thought it was texture-based. :iconokayfaceplz:

If it is texture based that will be epic, I too don't really know much about it and really look forward to it in the next FO patch.

Well, I've gone back to the original post and here's a Doca quote: "it works exactly like in st:legacy if you know that. very small separate texture files for each ship name and one new odf command to link the names to the textures. models have to be modified for it to work (again, just like in st:legacy - 'stlogo')"

We can hope, heh? :)

I really like this. It does feel reminiscent of medieval windows, but the images are all alien and bizarre, yet still reverential.

I'm seeing a couple similarities to descriptions of angelic beings in the Bible, though I don't know if that's intentional or not. ^^;

Those familiar with Ezekiel will probably get a kick out of this. ^^;

I thought it would be awesome to see an extraterrestrial perspective of something a lot of humans are familiar with, although based on the modern portrayal of angels it would seem that western culture might not be that familiar with their original depictions.

I agree with that. :/ I rather like the four-faced beings and shining people with six wings and wheels with eyes a lot more. XD

This is remarkable! I like the colors, the light effects make this more eye-catching, and the details make you want to "read" its story.
