"Amagosa987"

  • Hi Im Chris Knight, aka Amagosa987, a staff moderator at Star Trek Legacy Files. I havent been around long but I am an established artist and modeller, and have created many images for use on the site. As well as this I am on a degree that specifically looks at CG design and animation. Such examples include starship design and other hard surface modelling. Star Trek Legacy Files is a place with some really enthusiastic developers who love what they do. They also are very willing to help others come into the fold which gives me the reason to think Legacy files (while not the biggest site) is one of the best maintained sites on Filefront. I usually lurk around on the forum, I am at my final Year at university so work is a time consuming occupation. Although Id chuck it in the bin for filefront if I could, its much more enjoyable, I think you'd all agree. PROCRASTINATION FOR THE NATION!!!! In association with my good friend AcidFluxxBass we have released The Whitestar from Babylon 5 for star trek legacy. Modelled by me, textured and imported by Acid. We hope to release another fairly possible yet extreamly ugly vessel in the form of the Enterprise J featured in one of the furture timeline Enterprise episodes. As well as this I am hoping to do some modelling for NewGens next total conversion mod KOBAL'S LAST GLEAMING (ill leave you to guess what its about lol.)

Download: The Mine (1.0) More Far Cry 2: FileFront's Far Cry 2 Files

Star Wars Battlefront: Ranen: Platforms This is Ranen: Platforms, by Ty294. As you can probably guess from the title, it's much like "Bespin: Platforms", but a lot larger, and with unique units, and a much darker setting. I much liked and disliked - in equal measures - the fog hanging over the platforms as they gave the enemy and AI allies the element of surprise, but the player may have trouble attacking in fighters when in the fog. Download: Ranen: Platforms More Star Wars Battlefront: FileFront's Star Wars Battlefront Files

Elite Force: New Hope - USS Ariana Despite being around the RPG-X community for some time now, RadiSign of the New Hope roleplay group brings us the newest Beta of what is perhaps their masterpiece map: the USS Ariana. The Ariana is a medium size map representing the new "Morpheus-class" runabouts, which are slightly bigger than your typical Danube-class, including such areas as a multi-purpose office, a fully equipped sickbay, crew cabins, and also an escape pod (which launches).

Company of Heroes: Forrest Gump Forrest Gump is a eight player map with a forest theme that features many routes and a crossable river. Axis are seperated into 2 pairs.

Download: Forrest Gump More Company of Heroes: FileFront's Company of Heroes Files

Jedi Knight III: Siege - Battle over Coruscant Darth Norman strikes again! One of the best mappers out there, you know when Norman releases a new map, that it’s gonna be good. And oh boy is this good! The Battle over Coruscant, or more specifically, the battle aboard General Grievous’ ship, the Invisible Hand from the beginning of Revenge of the Sith has been given a pretty good going over by excellent mappers in the past. Download: Siege - Battle over Coruscant More Jedi Knight III: FileFront's Jedi Knight III Files

Star Wars Battlefront 2: Coruscant CTF In short, this is a Space Coruscant CTF map that's loaded with capital ships and multiple spawn points. I'm not sure I understand why there are so many Command Posts to spawn from. Some of them are in the corners of the map, far from the action. Download: Coruscant CTF More Star Wars Battlefront 2: FileFront's Star Wars Battlefront 2 Files

Far Cry 2: Magic Kingdom Reduced For those of you that have enjoyed the previous release of Magic Kingdom (Final), then you are sure to have a good time in this version, which is essentially a smaller version.

Jedi Knight III: Crimea Wow...honestly, I daresay this might be one of my favorite duel maps evar =_= why? Well just look at it! Go ahead, look at the screenshots. ...For those of you who actually came back to the review, a basic rundown: this map is a two-arena ground that honestly keeps reminding me of some sort of temple proving grounds. Download: Crimea More Jedi Knight III: FileFront's Jedi Knight III Files

Jedi Knight III: Jedi / Sith Chistori Okay, so just imagine... Obi Wan is engaged in an epic duel with Barne-... I mean Desann. They fight for hours on end, parrying and slashing and waving their hands in the air, shouting the same cutting remark countless times over. They're nearly to the point of exhaustion when on the horizon who shows up but... BROLY. He takes Desann and Obi Wan and rips their heads and hands off, and then proceeds to slam each of the body parts into the other person with such force that they instantly fuse with the body. Thus, Obi Wan now has Desann's head and hands, thanks to Broly. Download: Jedi / Sith Chistori More Jedi Knight III: FileFront's Jedi Knight III Files

Bridge Commander: Wraith Cruiser Here is the Wraith Cruiser as seen from Stargate Atlantis, this ship is armed with numerous energy weapons but not as many as the far larger hive ship. This ship also holds upto 8 Wraith Darts which can be launched using the Shuttle Launching Framework. The ship itself is fairly detailed, and also fairly accurate when compared to the show. The hardpoint is also fairly accurate mainly because it has no shields. Download: Wraith Cruiser More Bridge Commander: FileFront's Bridge Commander Files

Grand Theft Auto San Andreas: Peugeot 205 GTI Here is a Peugeot 205 GTI Version, a car first built 26 years ago (and stopped in 1997). This car is a 3 door hatchback meaning it can only replace any 2 door car of your choice or the Blista Compact (the one chosen by the author). The car is fairly accurate when compared to the real version of the car, although does look slightly blocky around the front of the car.

Empire at War: Jeff's Texture Pack: Planets Jeff's Texture Pack: Planets is a texture pack for use with Empire at War and Forces of Corruption by The_Farseer. The_Farseer's latest texture pack is a great release that includes new textures for approximately half of the planets. Many people have complained about the lack of detail in the default Petroglyph texture maps for planets, so I'm sure that many FoC players will be happy with this mod.
