Probably the Trashman's one. Better then retail...

Not really, no.

Trashman's HTL Typhon is nice, but Esarai was in progress of making a much better (though a bit weird) one.

Trashman's 'HTL' Typhon as nice if you're blind and couldn't tell the difference anyway. All he did was smooth it all over, extrude twice near the front, and up the tiling factor.

Esarai has long abandoned his Typhon, however, ragingloli is making one with the intent of finishing it.

Whatever method he used, it's still better than the original one.

Hrm. Going off the above screenshot I actually can't tell the difference.  :confused:

Well, no. Not visually. The texture was overtiled (more so than the original) and the stuff he added did very little to actually accent the details; rather it was simply adding random greebles in arbitrary places that actually had the effect of breaking up the fluency of the design. I hear that in a blind test (using the picture linked above) most people actually thought the original one was the HTL version. I think that says enough.

I think TrashMan has made quite a few decent models, but the HTL Typhon wasn't one of them.

Lighting is a lot better for the HTL version, because the hull is rounder. And the nose is recognizably different also.

This is ragingloli's Typhon.

As great as this is, but where's the progress on this? I saw that pic, and the others in that gallery, several months if not years ago already.

Wow, I forgot about this.
I didn't seen Ragingloli for some time, so it's possible that he disappeared again.

Hello, and thank you for your message  .
Unfortunately, my life has been rather busy for some time and I did not have time to do any work on the Typhon. (The latest pictures on my site are all from the course I am attending right now.)
I can not make any predictions as to when it might be finished.
This is from a week ago, when I messaged him on the progress on his model.

That's only on the old per-vertex shaders, I believe, which rely on the model (but you're still wrong)
