- I feel that some FRED newbies need to know the difference between the SJ and the SJD Sathanas ships, so I created this article in about 5-6 minutes. Sigtau 15:23, 8 June 2009 (UTC)


"minicap.pof" (the low-poly Sathanas model) was not used to create the target view illusion, I think it was an entirely separate attempt to do the same thing, but was rejected by [V] in favor of this solution. Also, the model minicap.pof is not small either. In fact it has similar dimensions to the normal Sathanas. Just though I should clarify my previous edit in case it caused any confusion. - Snail 21:32, 8 June 2009 (UTC)

In retail FS2, minicap.pof does appear in the target view window, when targeting an SJD Sathanas. I don't know if that's been changed in FSOpen or not, though. -- BlueFlames 03:18, 9 June 2009 (UTC)
I doesn't. Taken from the retail table:
 $Name:                      SJD Sathanas
 $Short name:				SDev
 $Species:                   Shivan
 +Tech Description:
 XSTR("A Sathanas, off in the distance.", 3168)
 $POF file:                  Blip.pof
 $POF target file:			SuperCap2S-01.pof
 $Detail distance:			(0, 2500, 5000, 14000)
The phrase "minicap.pof" does not appear anywhere in the FS2 retail ships table. - Snail 16:26, 22 June 2009 (UTC)
External camera shot of the SJD Sathanas and minicap.pof sitting in my target view box. Are you still going to insist that minicap.pof isn't used, without testing it? -- BlueFlames 04:00, 23 June 2009 (UTC)
That's not minicap.pof. Look at the table- the target box uses the full SJ Sathanas model, and not minicap.pof. -ShadowGorrath
That thing sitting in your target box is the normal supercap2s-01.pof file which is the normal Sathanas pof. Minicap.pof appears to be a super-low detail version of supercap2s-01.pof. Open up minicap.pof itself and take a look. - Snail 15:21, 23 June 2009 (UTC)


Where did "Deceiver" come from? - Snail 17:48, 26 June 2009 (UTC)

The SJ"D" probably. Though I always took it to me "distant" Ngtm1r 21:37, 26 June 2009 (UTC)
Funny, that's what I thought too. - Snail 21:58, 26 June 2009 (UTC)
