2010-07-30 - Sobek Class Battlestar, now with textures! (image heavy)
We've shown you the Sobek class battlestar before; you've seen Slayer's original design sketches, Meleardil's model, then Tan.J.'s high poly model. What you haven't seen is what she'll actually look like in the game, and that's where I came in - she's ship enough to have more then 3 parents, so I came in to texture her and deliver the final look.
After some modifications on both Meleardil's and Tan.J.'s meshes, which included setting up UVW maps, cutting them up into workable pieces, modifying geometry to get her closer to Slayer's original vision and finally doing a lot of optimizing to ultimately make it playable in the game, I was able to effectively bake normal maps from the high poly model - I think you'll agree the effort was worth it. The rest was basically lots and lots of photoshop work.
Thanks to FUBAR's converting skills I'm able to show you the ship as she appears in the game itself; she's not completely done (missing LODs, detail boxes, debris, destroyable subsystems etc) but the most detailed LOD is functional. The rest of the work won't change her visually - this is how she will appear in the game. So, enjoy the pics!

That looks outstanding and you've now got me wondering if my comp will be able to play this at a decent frame rate!

Just on a random side note: can you enter the flight pod, fly along inside it and out the other end? Please note I'm not talking amount combat landings or anything like that... yet :nervous:

Yes. You can.

We're working on the landing inside it too. Can't promise anything on that score but you definitely will be able to fly inside the pods.

Good lord, you weren't joking about the image heavy tag.

This is outstanding work, really looking forward to seeing it in game :)

Since I was only looking at lvlshot-ed pics I failed to notice that photobucket resized all pics. Replaced all links with tinypic ones, once enlarged they should be in their original (higher) resolutions.

She looks absolutely gorgeous! One thing I noticed is that the launch tubes alternate their directions, but the flightpod doesn't look like it's high enough to support 2 separate levels, what's the point of having to stick half the vipers to the roof :P
Or something.
