Weapons! We need YOUR help!
Download most recent VP here. Updated 7/6.

Yes, you! Behind the keyboard!

For the next release, we want remodeled classic weapons along the lines of the Freespace Upgrade Project. I'm sick of those single-frame static loading pictures alongside the Avenger, Banshee and Tsunami, and I'm sure you are too.

Trouble is, there are a lot of them. Every FS1 primary cannon and secondary missile, from the ML-16 to the EMP Missile, needs to be remodeled. But with your help, we can do it!

If you can run Blender, you can help contribute. For the green-grid loading animations, there are no limits! Bad geometry, millions of faces, intersecting polies, it doesn't matter. Pack it up as a .3DS file and post it here and it'll be animated by yours truly. In-game missile models are also wanted but only if you already have experience with making POFs.

For my part I'm taking on the Disruptor Advanced and the Silent Threat weapons (Leech, Shield Breaker, Cluster Bomb and EMP.) Take your pick, they're all available. You can use the FS1 cbanis and SSanis for reference.

Re: Weapons! We need YOUR help!
Absolutely gorgeous, Icey. Not to scare anyone off, but we don't need models THAT detailed. :D

I'll bake and render those and create in-game models once I get the converted files. Thanks!

Twist of Fate has a good looking ML-16.

Earth Defense have good looking Avenger and Prometheus. I have them included in my SAH upgrade.

I suppose that those mods would allow FSPort to use the effects.

Re: Weapons! We need YOUR help!
Might be waiting for reply from Twist of Fate to use the effects ( wishfull thinking ).

And you, Icey, aren't you supposed to be doing something else ?

 
Re: Weapons! We need YOUR help!

Sig nuked! New one coming soon!

Re: Weapons! We need YOUR help!
Yea, Twist of Fate is awesome. I've only noticed that the Herc has an error in it's shield, as if from side, I could shoot it's hull down a lot with an ML-16.

Back on topic.

Maybe someone else can collect the stuff, pack them up, and send them to the dead innactive Galemp ?

This is a reply. :wtf:

If you mean actually doing something with the stuff I've been given so far, it's coming.

Re: Weapons! We need YOUR help!
That looks great, it's just what we need. All it needs is a splash of color.

Re: Weapons! We need YOUR help!
I don't know how to use Blender very well, but after a bit of experimenting, I managed to give it some colour.



What do you think?

Re: Weapons! We need YOUR help!
Couldn't be better. Post the .blend file, or export it to a 3DS, and it'll be seen to this weekend hopefully. :)

If that's a closed mesh (and low enough poly) we could get that ingame.

It actually appears to be rather high-poly for in-game use.
