texture?? no not yet
i've got the rest of it to go still
especially the part that goes in the middle
lookin great great work and u picked the design i liked
It's time for my annual post in this forum .
Good job! -- You're, oh, five feet away from me at the moment...
here's a small update.. will work more this weekend now that i dont have any school work..
This ship is going to turn out really nice. I agree about the homework, luckily for me, my Algebra 2 teacher forgot to give us some.
And a back shot since i just finished reworking the engines (they used to be a glowing rectangle ) NOTE: the side engine areas are going to be filled as well along the same lines as this center part but right now i have to do other things.. like sleep
Lookin good, keep it coming!
Nice work. Where is the download button?
Nice, when are you going to start texturing?
Texturing will probably start when i finish the model and have time
to DR Jones: download eh?
yeah, download, you know, when you click and then the mesh is on your computer, and you can have fun with it, and don't have to do any modelling work.
ill think about it..
In case you were interested tho, you'd have to convert it to a Max format since i use lightwave
oh btw yesterday the model topped 120k polys and still more to come
Cool, so far my computer can hold it, my Anakin's Speeder Full res model had 251k. I bet that yours will have like 200k or around there.
im sure it will.. you have to remember roughly 30% of the ship hasnt been built yet there is that gaping space in the front that needs ... stuff
Some minor updates.. while alot was added you really cant tell
but i put up 2 pics.. one with the engines practically done and one showing whats not quite done..
I like it
very good. But I prefered the first design, the boat looking one.
Keep it up - lookin' good!
heh thanx to those who've commented
Jones: the boat designs were my more favorite too.. but im weird and i liked this one more
im not sure where this one is going.. at the moment.. hence the long waits between updates.. however i did a bit of brain storimg and came up with 4 possible variants..
a "gaint gun with engines" type ship
a destroyer/cruiser (filling in the space in the front with .. sutff)
a carrier type ship (naturally .. hanger bays go in the gap)
or a massive kind of central flagship for a fleet.. with the gap in the front for repairs of smaller capital ships.. (i know random but hey it gives a purpose to the gap )
anyway here are some small updates as well
or based on the way the front splits and has that recessed piece in the middle, it could be a ship intended to ram its target, breach the hull, and deploy units(whether large or small) into the belly of the enemy ship...
#1: Experimental weapons platform. I'm ripping off of Larry Niven here, but the two thingies that jut out from the front could be disintegrator beams. One would neutralize the charge on the proton, and the other would neutralize the charge on the electron. Besides tearing apart huge volumes of matter whereever the beams touched down, the beams would establish a MASSIVE potential difference between them. Anything in the middle would get fried.
I'm going to go ahead and cast my vote for a strong 50/50 or 60/40 mix of what Darksteps and Diablo said... cause... dang.
What about a mining vessel? Manoeuvre rocks in between the sticky out plate bit things and then use diabloblanco17's idea to pulverise them into dust which is pulled into the main body of the ship for processing...
or not... that's a bit lame next to ramming...
Love the detailing, though I'm with Dr Jones on the design, preferred the boat one. This looks more suited to a small hot-rod than a giant capital ship.
don't know why i haven't commented on this before, but i like it.... looks good
