Wow this popped up out of nowhere and got nearly finished before I spotted it - nice!

I am a big fan of the engines and that awesome random pipe. Well done. :)

Edit: Err, totally OT, but far out my sig MVP links are a bit out of date. Time to fix.

Too bad usually whenever I see these in-game, I naught even glance at them, other than assigning a fighter or two to grant them cover.

Outstanding job, in the truest form.

You should play BP. You get lots of chances to stare at them and shoot them down. o_o

I hope not before too long, but I've still got some more reworking on the model to go. This compares the old to the new, I was trying something new on the engine on the new one.

I don't think it's nessesary, you'll increase polycount on something obscured by engine glow.

What dragon said. Not only something round like that look odd to me at this place, but since it's gonna be under thrusters anyway, I don't think it's necessary indeed.

However the thruster anim might be scaled down to fit the new engine.

none the less, circular thing on hermes just feels wrong 8)

No, it does not need any poly reduction, nor can I reduce it anymore. A cylinder being 'off' on the Hermes? You'll probably not like the Medusa, then.

I like it, for one. It'll also look a lot better when a pod is disabled.
[16:57] <CommanderDJ> What prompted the decision to split WiH into acts?
[16:58] <battuta> it was long, we wanted to release something
[16:58] <battuta> it felt good to have a target to hit
[17:00] <RangerKarl> not sure if talking about strike mission, or jerking off
[17:00] <CommanderDJ> WUT
[17:00] <CommanderDJ> hahahahaha
[17:00] <battuta> hahahaha
[17:00] <RangerKarl> same thing really, if you think about it

If you're going to have to add an engine, I'd rather have it be more detailed than a cylinder. Although I don't believe that we should stick with retail for this, the thruster only works on the top of the rectangle. If you really want cylinders, add a few small ones on the top. It looks too big as one giant thing.

It's just that... it's just a circle in the middle of a square. That just looks completely off as-is. I don't say it's a bad idea to change the engine shape, but what you currently have here just looks... off.

Hey here's an idea there could be four additional thruster cones in the corners of the square.
