<Nuclear>   truth: the good samaritan actually checked for proof of citizenship and health insurance
<Axem>   did anyone catch jesus' birth certificate?
<Nuclear>   and jesus didnt actually give the 5000 their fish...he gave it to the romans and let it trickle down
<Axem>and he was totally pro tax breaks
<Axem>he threw out all those tax collectors at the temple
<Nuclear>   he drove a V8 camel too
<Nuclear>   with a sword rack for his fully-automatic daggers

Esarai: hey gaiz, what's a good improvised, final attack for a ship fighting to buy others time to escape to use?
RangerKarl|AtWork: stick your penis in the warp core
DarthGeek: no don't do that
amki: don't EVER do that

Yes, I made sure of it when I handed the package to Esarai.

This is truly awesome. (well, all the ships in your fleet are awesome).

Any plans for making a cruiser-sized vessel sometime? That's really the only thing you're missing, and some of your design ideas would go well on a cruiser.

Re: Esarai's Fleetpack (Emperor Flagship and Phoenix Multirole Frigate)
FYI, I redid the tables to put placeholder weapons (because part of the deal was that we could not release the ones that come with it) so you'll likely want to change them a bit.

yeah, was wondering why noone had made a Star Destroyer remake in the FS2 universe... Now it is.

It appears to be fairly good but my critique side of me is dying to scream out. No offenses but I personally believe critique is the path to a better tomorrow and improvement in the long run  :D.

The efficient use of textures certainly is admirable but the UV map on EFM2_1 does not take advantage of every eekling of space  :wtf:. Meaning you wasted texture space that could increase texture resolution. I have learned that every little bit of space counts and every bit of space used means more pixels for us to see and enjoy  :eek2:.

The UV space on 2 is a lot better except that the space for the engines is god frighteningly huge :blah:. Given the size of thruster glows I've seen the resolution would be clouded by said glows. You could save tons more space for more visible parts of the ship by squeezing that engine section down to size and expanding the others.

Additionally the bevels in the hull appear to be embossed. Meaning the diffuse has highlight shading on it. I recommend you scrap that except for a non normal map version. This is because diffuse shading could conflict with normal map shading, creating odd visual effects. I recommend you create a layer made of only lines and create a blurred version above it or use photoshop's layer effects without the highlighting. It will create the illusion of an overcast bevel on all sides. This way when the normal map lighting hits it, it will not conflict with the diffuse map and will work on all angles and not just a specific few.

These are just some suggestions I have learned over the years both personally, from others, and college. You obviously don't have to listen to me but hey, have my two pennies  :D.
I have created a masterpiece.

Re: Esarai's Fleetpack (Emperor Flagship and Phoenix Multirole Frigate)
Thanks all!

Vengence, this was one of my earliest UV mapped ships.  I tried to be as efficient as possible without causing strange texture distortions.  And yes, the bevels in the hull are embossed.  The map was created well before I was proficient in making normal maps, and was a method to account for it.  Now, on bevels, I use the 'Inner shadow' effect with zero distance and decent size and spread settings.  Makes for a much nicer height gradient in the heightmaps.

Actually, I can see where he's coming from. It does share certain design features with a Venator-class Star Destroyer and also Executor-class Super Star Destroyer (albeit in much smaller scale).

Much more fluid lines and sort of sophisticated design here, though. The ISD's are sort of brutal, this ship exudes elegance and valour. Looking at this ship I feel it isn't far-fetched at all that an emperor could use this as their flagship. :yes:
There are three things that last forever: Abort, Retry, Fail - and the greatest of these is Fail.

 
Re: Esarai's Fleetpack (Emperor Flagship and Phoenix Multirole Frigate)
Yes.  This looks like a re-made the Executor in the ante-Capella style of ship design, especially the engine positioning which is much like the Executor's.

[08:00:11] <Caiaphas> the plane however performed admirably, and only crashed because it no longer had any guidance systems

Vengence, this was one of my earliest UV mapped ships.  I tried to be as efficient as possible without causing strange texture distortions.  And yes, the bevels in the hull are embossed.  The map was created well before I was proficient in making normal maps, and was a method to account for it.  Now, on bevels, I use the 'Inner shadow' effect with zero distance and decent size and spread settings.  Makes for a much nicer height gradient in the heightmaps.  

Makes sense, explains that this wasn't something you've cooked up in a matter of minutes recently  :).

Yes.  This looks like a re-made the Executor in the ante-Capella style of ship design, especially the engine positioning which is much like the Executor's.

I am sure Palpatine and Issard would be pleased  :). And Kuat would appreciate your monetary contributions to produce such a fine vessel.

I'd much rather make a contribution to the Argos Naval Yards for a re-design of your super-destroyer, especially since there's new reference material in the form of the SFLv Leviathan. :p
