if it were biologically possible, I'de ask you to have my baby

the only thing I dear about this is that the coolness will get lost or diluted in the textures.

Are you going to custom uv or just use the tiles?

BTW, see if you can get what'shisname to give you the turrets off the upgunned version that hanging around, they look good enough to use without much modification.

It was Raptor who made the improved turrets.  He made a standard version and an up-gunned version.

Well Bob... the Hercules, the Deimos, and now the Orion.  You've certainly got a name for yourself in Hi-Polyizing Cannon FS ships, though IIRC, the Herc and Deimos haven't been fully LODed or in the case of the Deimos... debris'ed yet.

Lost sight of bottom jaw.  Is there going to be much of a size difference between this and the origional?

why would I change the size? :wtf:

I'm not done yet, it lacks suficent detail in the rear behind the fighter bay, on the top in the back, and the front of it could use one more layer of greebleing. I'm probly going to add destroyable duct work similar to the engines I did on the Deimos.

if someone has some turrets I'll use them, but I have some ideas on what to do.

I'm going to use origonal textures, might make some modifications of them for some sections (you all remember that paralax test I did with the arcadia textures?) I intend to be able to use the origonal models for LOD and stuff

Maybee its just my wierd thinking in my dreams again but i always thought that the Orion design could be trasnposed into a larger more powerfull ship.  Like the old fenris that i tryed to increase but i just couldn't do it any justice (trying again btw).

I never liked the Orion. This doesn;'t change that, but it does look better.

BLASPHEMER!!!!!:hopping:

hmm....::hopping: :hopping:  synchronized hopping :p

anywayz, that does look truly awesome... if you can get hte texturing to match that quality, then freespace will then truly be among the league of the awesomest gamez in the history of the universe. even tho FS nad FS2 ARE the greatest games int he history of the universe...


BTW, i made a 'V-TURRET-IMPROVED' type thing that im using on the Parthenon (a ship, not the parthenon itself :p) and i can post up a piccy if you want... all it is relaly is longer barrels, an indentation on the base, and a better texture job. and the barrels have an inside (kinda) and a little 'steep' bit in the middle. want any pics?

[edit] and i would usggest you put more 'antennae' on hte front of it, you know where i mean, i think. it woul just look better, methinks.
