So I decided that the Zephyrus needed some TLC and here is the current level of progress.

A bit of background: There have been several attempts at making an HTL GTG Zephyrus but none of them were stable enough for the MVPs as such I'm aiming to make this as perfect of a release as possible.


Texturing phase has started

I recall seeing one of hlp model wizzards tackle this one, so that attempt didn't make it?

On the model itself nice work so far!

Yes I believe it was Galemp who worked on it but it encountered several problems and faded into the background unfortunately.

Thanks for your support!

The Zephyrus is so nice! I used it in my one and only mission I did Using FRED2. That new texture is quite awesome!!

P3D updated

I'm testing positioning of the gas container at the moment.

Thanks! I'm just here to make y'all happy.

As Axem said: "It looks so happy."

This is a long overdue update and I'm planning on NO TILEMAPS. This thing is gonna be tricked out with it's own splash of war paint.

I'm testing positioning of the gas container at the moment.

I would advise that you adjust its angle to match the up-turn of the "mouth" on the front.  Secondly, are you considering making perhaps an alternate model for campaign designers with the gas containers as separate models with a cargo flag, and a freighter flag for the ship itself?  That way, a ship could drop off full tanks and pick up empty ones.  For the stock model however, you may also want to consider making the containers as separate, destroyable submodels.

I'm going to change the angle, just not at the moment.

It was originally planned for there to be two options, one for stock and one for modders who want to use the gas container as a cargo object.

So it would seem. The only problem I see arising with the non-stock option is docking points, I'm gonna need to ask an older member for some advice on placing them.

Now that I've got some more projects finished, I'm coming back to the Zephyrus.

Tiny little update: The Zephyrus is starting to look toothy.

Thanks! I just updated the P3D as well. The model is getting closer to being finished and I may have started UV mapping it by the end of the week.

You might want to add some small greebles at the middle parts, like a docking port or something like that. As it stands now it's notably less populated than other parts of the ship.
The front looks nice, it could probably look better if you add something on the inner part of that dented front  :D

There is going to be a docking point under the rear facing turret (that's a retail detail). The middle ship will receive some normal mapping but I'm forgoing much of the retail texture detail in favor of something new.

I also think the back section is underdetailed, either by greebles or something more thought out (designed plates, Star Wars like populated decks or whatever). The front section and the engine section are phenomenal, A+ effort here, really outstanding :yes:
