In an alternate reality, sure. In this one you haven't had anything to do with any of the missiles above :P

And that LW was run on windows. So really, all credit for most of Diaspora work should go to Bill :D

Re: The official Diaspora eyecandy thread
I'd rather take the said credit thank you very much.

Though you did help a bit.

Combination of knowing what you are doing in both Photoshop and Lightwave. There's really no special trick :)

That's amazing ;D
I so can't wait for all this to be release.

You'd better be talking about the missiles. Or I'll have my ships nuke you :P

Wait, I thought this game was cf's and my own personal portfolio, with the rest of the stuff being just a necessary evil?

If I may make a request, can we see a shot of how the Viper cockpits are coming along?

There's something funny about that orange-ish explotion on the first and second shots, I recon it should look better as an animation right?

Re: The official Diaspora eyecandy thread
That looks really nice.

BTW, have you Diaspora guys managed to get Hobbes on the line for that Demosthenes ship of his for use in Diaspora yet?

There's been a lot of questions about the mark 7 cockpit progress, and finally we're at a point where we can show something. The original model was done by Nighteyes, we set a polycount and he did the model very well inside those limits. However, when we were looking at that 8k model we decided that it needs a more flexible poly limit - the reasoning behind this was that firstly, there can only ever be one of these rendered in a mission at any given point, and secondly, unlike ships you will always see it from a very close range. Since this is the mk7 cockpit, it will definitely be one of the things the player will be staring a lot at, so we felt the need to make it look as detailed as possible; a few thousand tris more would make little difference in the long run. Unfortunately by that time Nighteyes was too busy to continue working on it so I took over and did the upgrades - modeling credits go to Nighteyes with some modifications by me. I also fully unwrapped it and it's ready for texturing, which I plan to have done as soon as possible.
In the mean time, enjoy this quick render of the finished mesh:

Re: The official Diaspora eyecandy thread
Thank you very kindly for posting this.  :D

Though we might be a ways off from producing cockpits for Stellar Assault, our current plan is to make fairly substantial use of normal maps in ours so as to keep the poly count down. Thus, we can have a very high poly model for generating the maps, and a lower poly in-game model which would ideally be indistinguishable from the complex version with the addition of the normal maps. Are you planning on taking such a course of action with your cockpits?
