RELEASE: GTGs Prominence
RELEASE! I fixed the pof (those who got it early via PM will need to redownload since the turrets were ****ed up), and finished the shinemap and normal map. The only real issue is that it's not smoothed, and there's no way I'm reimporting and re-POFnig the entire thing. Maybe if I go over all my models later on I'll do that. If someone else wants to re-POF with smoothing or maybe resize it (I made it smaller than I had said originally; it fits better with my other designs and FS ships are frakking huge) I will send over the blend file.

The name is "Prominence", courtesy of Battuta.

[EDIT] Now includes epic smoothing by DROID803!

Re: Starting a gunship (needs a name)
Don't call it a gunship.  It makes us TBP people cringe. 
No-one ever listens to Zathras. Quite mad, they say. It is good that Zathras does not mind. He's even grown to like it. Oh yes. -Zathras

Re: Starting a gunship (needs a name)
This gunship is not being made for TBP (although of course any mods/campaigns may use it and can call it whatever they want). In the universe this is for, I decided to do away with the Cruiser/Destroyer mix-up and so named smaller military ships "gunships" (along with "jumpships" that carry small fighter complements) while larger ones (FS destroyers) will be "battleships". (A larger differentiated class, "Cruisers"/"Frigates", may also exist).

Re: Starting a gunship (needs a name)
You missed the point.  Gunships in TBP use an object type "gunship" that the engine doesn't have defined so the AI goes nuts.  Thus the cringe at the mention of the term.

Ah, OK. Good old objecttypes... :P

Yeah it acts exactly like a FS cruiser, so it'll be using "Cruiser".

Re: Starting a gunship (needs a name)
Interesting design with the shell idea; reminds vaguely of the Vaygr Flagship from Homeworld 2 (heavy armour shell with the rest of the ship underneath). Shall was watching this space with much interest. :yes:

Re: Starting a gunship (needs a name)
Technically, it would be a gunboat, rather than gunship.
"Gunship" (today) refers to attack helicopters, while gunboat is small, heavly armed naval ship.
FS gunship would most likely be a bomber sized craft with sliding thrusters and a lot of primaries.

I'd called it "Turtle!"  :D. Let it not bite our limbs off thank you.

Re: Starting a gunship (needs a name)
If you name small ships after particles, perhaps you can name large ships after something similar? Elements, for example? GTGs Wolfram...

Wolfram also can be a name of a scientist developed a weapon an special engine or special cloaking tech.
The classname can be a name of an area likes Arizona or Bengal....
Exapmle Name:GTGb(s) Aaron Wolfram Class:GTGb(s) Dublin...... or same other names and classes....

If i can´t model any ship then i use "flying trains" :-)

 :yes:  Wolfram is on my list of names to use.

Re: Starting a gunship (needs a name)
Wolfram makes me think of Wolfram Mathworld/Wolfram|Alpha and Mathematica. Therefore, it is truly an awesome ship name and is in consideration.

Any others?

(BTW I probably can't make much progress this week due to uni stuff, but this weekend I might be able to get some more detailing done)

Wolfram is a sign for higest heat resistance and was chemistry scientist,i think.
If it´s a offence weapon carrier then you can use names of generals on nameplates as GTGb Custer,Nimitz,Yamoto and so on.

GTGs Lepton or Quark (unless you want to save the smallest things for fighters, if so then Protium would also work).

Re: Starting a gunship (needs a name)
 :bump:

So, just started working on this thing again. Got some detailing done, worked on both control towers (upper and lower) and I'm planning to start on the area around the engines.

Showing turret placements and engine design (the engines look skinnier than they should):
