Anyone Care to Revive the Tennyson?
Anyone remember the old bird? Here's some screens to refresh your memory, if not introduce the wonder to ya'll.

This thing was never converted into a .pof, and if it was, it was never released to the public, at least not in any living links these days. The only amount of progress I knew of was that TrashMan and Woomeister were working on it, but that was years ago. I made a topic requesting the Tennyson last December, but got nothing I could work with. Getter Robo G was kind enough to give me what has been done, but I have insufficient (none) moddeling experience to work with it. (What he has done is contained in the attachment here)

TrashMan seems to be too busy (last I heard) with other things to attempt this again. I was wondering if anybody out there is at all willing to get this thing finished or perhaps updated with additional details.

Yuck, that ship looks ugly. Who made it?

Edit: What a wonderful subject for my 500th post.

Ryx made it. His name is in the corner of each pic....

I think it looks good, but needs the turrets fixed, they dont look very FSish  :nervous:

 
Re: Anyone Care to Revive the Tennyson?
It looks pretty awesome IMO, except for the ugly Iceni-like texture scheme.
Fun while it lasted.

Then bitter.

 
Re: Anyone Care to Revive the Tennyson?

I gave you ryx's file...
I did NOTHING to it... (for the record).

Re: Anyone Care to Revive the Tennyson?
Dekker, you must remember!

I'll go ahead and change that bit of info on ya Robo.

Oh, and by the way, I looked through Ryx's image gallery on the site linked to those pictures. Yes, it is a new AWACS apparently, but it just seems to have a bulked up hull with the the prong still the same size, making it look... odd.

If someone could get the thing centered correctly and add in some FS2 styled turrets (I agree with Rico on how the current ones look like crap) all in .pof format, I think I could do the rest save .tbl files, mostly again with the turrets. Then again, anyone could take it from that point on.

Re: Anyone Care to Revive the Tennyson?
If this was just running it through PCS2 (as in, defining the turrets and stuff), I'd do it, but the skill and twiddling (as in, separating the subobjects) required is beyond me...

Re: Anyone Care to Revive the Tennyson?
From what I can tell, that and more. The "dummy" subobject with two Tennysons can be deleted with no ill effect. Apart from setting up the turrets, everything else (special points, thrusters, paths, etc.) need to be defined. The Tennyson also has only two LODs and no debris.... Since there's a .3DS file in that attachment up there, someone could make the debris. But where exists a modeler with the time?

Please do not post that stupid rickroll thing ever again. Especially not editing your post and replacing useful image links with it.

Re: Anyone Care to Revive the Tennyson?
Yes, its hitting us.
Every last link has been replaced with f*cking Rick Astely.
While its fun in moderation, this is overboard to the point of retarded-ness. *sigh*
Hopefully, the damage done isn't permanent...as in, the admins have a way of fixing this after this is all over.

Re: Anyone Care to Revive the Tennyson?
For the sake of everyone's sanity, I suppose I will post the raw link to the pics.

Anywho, @ Droid803, all the the heavy work that'll need to be done is LODs, debris, and turret stuff.

Just a related question, as I am working on fixing TrashMan's Whitehall, which is missing a few things, how necessary are paths in regards to subsystems and turrets?

Exactly...the stuff that needs Truespace or 3Dsmax (which I have)...just too noob to do anything like that.

They'll fix it on April 2nd. Personally I find it quite funny :D
