There is no rationale. I'm quite, quite mad. And you've made mr. Flibble mad, too. If you don't watch it, you'll be punished with 2 hours of W.O.O. (With Out Oxygen)



(Mr. Flibble wanted me to pass along a message from the Potato king: detail boxes. I can make use of those so each of the rack areas is replaced by a lower poly one when you're far enough. Considering everything else had been modeled up to that point, no I couldn't have spent those polygons better elsewhere.)


The model is frakkin gorgeous, but that is frakkin hilarious! :lol:

BSG or Red Dwarf???  I don't know which one I enjoyed more...  Oh wait.  They can't be compared...  Red Dwarf was a comedy...  Both sweet in their own right.

Wow, man. Wow. That's gorgeous. I'm so glad I'm getting a new video card within the next few weeks. =D

Re: 09-04-05 - Cylon Basestar
Texturing progress - i'm still tinkering with a lot of stuff there, and aligning things over uvw areas. But this should give you an idea of how it's going.. The shiny metal look will be achieved with the spec map, this is merely a render of the diffuse texture.



I'd also like to add that artists-wise, we are a bit short handed; sure we can do everything, but it'll take time. So, if you want to help us out, we could certainly use good 3d modelers/texturers (you'll need to know how to uvw map as well to integrate the two).
Drop us a line at [email protected] if you feel you have the skill and time to help us out. We'd also appreciate if you include some examples of your work so far, that's the easiest way to see what you can offer.
You can find out more here.

Re: 09-04-05 - Cylon Basestar
Been way too long since I peeked into this thread (I really should get into looking into the developer blog more often in general), but that texturing work was coming around beautifully, I can only imagine what it's looking like now.

Awesome work, Newman.

Thanks, I've improved the texture you see somewhat and done quite a bit on the final 2 maps. I'll post some more pics in a bit.

Well, it's been a bit. Long enough, in fact, that I'm getting the 30-days-since-last-post warning. Got any pretty pics for us?

It's undergoing some final touches right now, actually. I've been tweaking the textures and assembling a light rig for the glow maps. It should be ready quite soon. In the mean time, however, I seem to have forgotten to post these pics here - I did have them posted elsewhere so you may have seen them already. Keep in mind though that these aren't the latest and don't show a finished product - the end result should look better.

I see no reason to not envy any of Newman's awesome skills. Glorious, my good man!

Now, if BSG had Viet Cong sappers, that might actually be viable.
