Re: UEF Murugan: Esarai's troubled HLP Modding Contest Entry (Still WIP)
So I purged them BSPs and rewrote the subobject properties and no change.  I'm not hallucinating, the names are identical in table and pof and FSO doesn't like them.  Possible extra characters sneaking into the pof subobject name?

UPDATE! It really helps if I remember to move the updated model INTO the game's model folder.  Subsystem issues are solved.  Now gotta figure out why the point defense turrets' barrels track their targets orthogonally.

Hmm, you didn't happen to leave some subobject rotation in (unapplied to the mesh) before exporting?

Nice ship, BTW :)

HAH! Enioch, troubleshooter extraordinaire to the rescue!

Did you flip the x normals in the turret's uvec?

Re: UEF Murugan: Esarai's troubled HLP Modding Contest Entry (Still WIP)
Yeah I handled extra rotations with extreme prejudice this time around.  EXTREME.  The only rotations that snuck up on me were those in the helpers.  They have been dealt with.

And yes, the normals are flipped.  Turns out it was how I defined the rotations.  The base must have fvec and uvec defined, and then the barrel must have the axis about which it rotates defined as well, if it's not a non-global axis.

So basically yeah I have the pof figured out, gotta fiddle with the main model a little bit more, but we should be golden.

About the trench, this ship was never meant to have a fighter bay, although that could make for a very badass launch sequence.
Ah, my bad then, still I like the design.
Good luck.

Of course. Those kitten cannons aren't just for show, you know.

And why do you think Axem has just finished developing a dubstep beam?

Just throwing out reminders about this being the last day of the competition. I saw Matththegeek's pics in the CoFS thread, so this is obviously ingame - please remember to release before midnight tonight GMT so we can consider it for the comp.

Yeah, no point witholding it anymore. It's good enough, it can be fine-tuned later if needed.

FINE TUNE EVERYTHING.

Fine-tuned pof iteration 1 done, testing now.  Made a few updates to the textures, gotta recreate the DDSs, once done will release the insane resolution version, followed shortly by the sane version.

UPDATE!  That was easily the smoothest test run I've ever done.  On to textures.

Re: UEF Murugan: Esarai's troubled HLP Modding Contest Entry (Still WIP)
OKAY.  Get your Murugan here.

Murugan v0.9 is released.  All maps are 4096s because I hate you all and have no qualms about sacrificing your GPUs on the altar of the graphics gods. 

As usual, this model is hereby released under a creative commons, non-commercial, attribution, share-alike license.  Feel free to use as you see fit.

Now, for what's inside:
  • 1 really big gun frigate
  • Ship, muzzleflash and weapons tables
  • Several effects borrowed from the BP mod pack for weapons
  • A few effects from my own modpacks, for MORE weapons (made before contest, please do not include in judgment)
  • A missile model I made a while back because I felt like it (same deal)

The UEFg Murugan features 2 gigantic railguns for maximum sniping, four three-gun mass driver turrets for intense bombardment, 12 CIWS guns for swiss-cheesing fighters who suffer extreme cases of the dumbs, and 3 RAM vls-launchers to tell bombers to piss off.  Comes with a lot of debris, destroyable engines, destroyed submodels for engines and turrets, a few destroyable armor plates, 4 LoDs, nameplates and a cup holder.

And I'm gonna go ahead and call out a glitch in the model I haven't been able to eradicate: the side-mounted CIWS guns' destroyed models' final resting position isn't the one the turret died in.  No idea how to correct this, attempts have failed.  Solved and updated.
