So I suppose I should start practicing with smaller stuff.
If you're looking to Hi-Polify something that hasn't been done before, try the Argo.
Oh, that's a really good idea. I used to do a little bit of modeling, several years ago, and the only thing I was ever any good at was really mechanical shapes. The Argo is right up my alley -- albeit maybe not that helpful if I'm trying to learn how to model things like Shivan ships...
Also, there are a whole bunch of really good and fairly important models that are just kind of...languishing in a nearly-complete state. Like, I think the new Orion and Deimos models are basically done. There's the Moloch, too, which is in dire need of an update. That model was pretty far along, but it was being made by rga_noris and he's MIA.
...huh. I just Googled his name to figure out how precisely it was spelled, and apparently it looks like he's active on the ARMA forums? That's interesting; I played 3 a little while back and had a lot of fun with it.
Anyway. Yeah, so, point is, there are all these models and I really really hate to see them half-abandoned like this.
