Out of interest is the tech description for the Horizon on the starship wiki valid? If so i like the idea of it having an on-board factory; adds lots of interesting options to the ship in a storyline. You could perhaps say it has a particle accellerator on board too (assuming they're a bit smaller by then :lol:) so it can convert base materials and the like to help its production (scrap metal goes in, ships come out... is anyone else reminded of Homeworld? :lol:).

It is very valid, except a few things have changed since then.  The SCI was renamed to the Sherida-Atsu Industrial Group.

The Solaris-class is a fleet-in-being, the Horizon-class is a starbase-in-being.  Except mobile.

A particle accelerator... interesting idea.  I'd imagine it'd have a pretty hefty salvaging department, not sure about materials reprocessing.  Sounds like it might be a job for a logistics ship.  But then again, 4.2 km is a lot of space to fit equipment into. 

And beeteedubs, a new challenger is approaching in the preview section!

Fleet-in-being has a slightly different meaning than what you're implying, but I get your point.

Introducing the Skjoldr Interceptor.  Now with 10% more armor and vroom!

SPECIAL FEATURE:  Comes with a texture slot for customizable console readouts!

Links in first post.

Notice, this has a strange cockpit rendering error that I've been unable to eradicate.  Is there someone out there who can give me a hand?

Nice ship, similar to GTF Durandal. I don't like only texture on wings, it is too colorful.

Re: Esarai's Fleetpack - New Content 01-15-2011
Strange clipping errors.  Random segments in the cockpit render completely transparent, letting the background show through.  The one thing I'm puzzled about is how I can't find a pattern to explain it.  There's also a strange effect where there seems to be a plane rendered down the midline of the cockpit glass that if viewed from one side has the bad transparency.  It really needs to be viewed in FSO with a decent background to understand the full scope of what's going on.

Re: Esarai's Fleetpack - New Content 01-15-2011
Usually caused by the glass vertices being too close tho the main body's vertices. If it's dificult to move them a bit further you can try merging the glass and the main body to the same mesh and reaply the glass texture (it's what i've done with the Shu and it workes fine for me).

Re: Esarai's Fleetpack - New Content 01-15-2011
I think it might be a side effect of having everything combined onto one texture.  The glass and hull texture are the same.  I'll try with a dedicated glass texture and see if that solves it.

Wing textures are too light colored. I like everything else.

Since you took so long to fix the holes in the Gefjon, I did it for you.

Where are these holes in the original? Are they severe?

They're in the upper gunpods.
A pair of triangles are missing on each side. It offended my delicate (somewhat OCD) sensibilities, so I had to go fix it.

Thanks Steve-O!  That means a lot to me, especially coming from you.  I'm glad to hear you've found a use for them.

About the projects, Stheno is around 90 polies from having its UVs finished, Horizon is at standstill thanks to other projects.

Hell I should just suck it up and finish Stheno.  It's so gorramn close.
