Re: What are you working on?
Amongst a vast pile of other projects, I'm working on this for FotG:


It's a K Wing, based on this version:



The K Wing is of the same vintage as the E Wing, and has been decanonised by Disney, but FotG isn't strictly adhering to new canon anyway. :)

Also:


Is that inspired by a base model from Freelancer? http://fl-guide.de/graph/holman_bild.jpg

Kinda-sorta. I have a military station core that's VERY much inspired by that

Re: What are you working on?


I'm cleaning out and mapping one of Cadius' models he decided to share with Blue Planet. As BP Team never managed to find a place for some of them, Darius passed the models to me as I requested. I really appreciate that.

Texture will be baked, just like majority of my models. This is going to be swarm torpedo-based destroyer for Earth faction in Exile :D.

Nice ship! But the little vertical doodad in the front feels vaguely phallic to me.

Re: What are you working on?
Wings 2 dogfight mechanics.

Curious on this, was this ingame numerical fakery (No offense intended, I just can't think of a phrase that isn't as strong to describe my thoughts atm) or were the fighters literally moving at 900+m/s? (I assume it's legit because of the distances?)

Any engine / guns / missile / ctr meas / etc issues at this speed? What about gliding and strafing?

I have had this stalled idea for ages now, did test mods a few times before with super high speed as presented above (none got far, always left on the back burner or deleted), but I could never get the combat to feel right - or I simply never tried hard enough. In 1v1 engagements of [ai-attack 'Alpha 1']  it was already a luck-based airborne space joust regardless of the capabilities of the individual fighters, and that's not even getting to the later problem of balancing fighter classes overall - light/medium/heavy - let alone any other ship.

How were the agility characteristics tuned based on the speed to get a good... errr... feel? As far as I am aware, I don't think the Starlancer style progressive turn damping is possible in FSO, unless I have not been keeping up with FSO's current feature set...

Re: What are you working on?
Look at all these people, creating one great thing after another.

And then there's me... poking around in FRED not even being able to throw a single decent mission together.

Oh well, at least I get a bit better each time I delete a mission from my folder.

Lemme show You something:

This is the first thing I ever modelled. I'm calling that "The Sh*tthing", I've done this... 3 years ago?

And this is the last. Head's up man! Everyone here were noobs once. Patience, training, making mistakes... Without such things, there wouldn't be any masters :P. However sometimes I doubt if I made any progress since the sh*tthing xD.

Keep Freding!

Thanks for the motivation.

Actually, 'The Sh*tthing' doesn't look too bad. It's only lacking a cockpit.

Heck, I might try doing some modeling, just for the heck of it.


Again, thanks for the motivation.

Re: What are you working on?
Actually, it looks more like a boxy predecessor to the Hecate, and thus a capital ship, as opposed to a fighter.  The metal girders on the nose and the lack of a clear armored prow make me think that perhaps it could be a freighter of some kind.

Re: What are you working on?
If I temember correctly it was somekind of strike frigate [1km+] with pair of hangarbays for rapid fighter deployment. The "wing" is actually launching ramp, and hangar is above it.

Re: What are you working on?
That detailed hanger would definitely be a prime candidate for detail boxes.  It would only render when you're right on top of it.

Re: What are you working on?
That's not even it's full size (it's gonna be longer). I have repair stations, lower-poly fighters and even people sprites.

Aaaaand now I started diddling with improving the Blade.

I have a ****ing mental condition......

Re: What are you working on?
Lolz. Atleast you've released some stuff. I've got a dozen good models laying around and none of them have even reached the UV mapping stages yet. I find it hard to stay focused with lots of ideas and interests running around.

Stupid brain, why you no focus!

 
Re: What are you working on?
Deora11, there's always the option to release such models as you think are ready to be UVmapped to the community and let someone else have a go at them.

Less new projects, more focus on current ones. Don't take more than 2-3 models at once as it will make you exhausted and causes quality drop of each model.

Ships needs love :P

I did that and no one touched anything (that I know off).
the Modular station was part of the released modelpack. if you want something done right (or done at all), do it yourself
