Heres a preview shot of the Piranha that Starman01 wanted.  Its far from done yet, I got nearly all the texture detail work converted now just needs tweaking, dirtying and detailing.  Its hard to get a good of whats what on a blurry 256*256 texture.

That's cool and ....disturbing at the same time o_o  - Vasudan Admiral

It's already dirty and detailed. :wtf: are your eyes going bad? that is high quality maps you have there.

I wept. Mysterious forces beyond my ken had reached into my beautiful mission and energized its pilots with inhuman bomb-firing abilities. I could only imagine the GTVA warriors giving a mighty KIAAIIIIIII shout as they worked their triggers, their biceps bulging with sinew after years of Ivan Drago-esque steroid therapy and weight training. - General Battuta

Wow. Just wow. You can't even show enthusiasm for something without making an insult.

Sorry about the confusion  :( :(

This was the 256*256 blurry texture I was talking about.


I do all my large texture mapping at 2048*2048 then resize to 1024*1024 for in-game.

Awesome :)

Two minor nitpicks though there are not absolutly necessary. I would round up the nose a little, and give the turrets in the sidepylons some more cylinder like appearance. There were just blocks in the old WCP model because of the poly-limitiation, but it shouldn't hurt SCP to be a a little more detailed (and also the laser and the stormfire-cannon below the nose).

The fun part is, with your awesome model I don't have to make myself a headache in creating an uv-map, so thanks :D

Heres an update.
LOD 0 is becoming rather heavy with the polycount... little over 3000  :nervous:  :nervous:  Fortunately Lod 1 returns back to little over 1000

It can be a side-effect of texture baking sometimes, bump-mapping doesn't lend itself all too well to baking, you'll see the most pronouned effect with diagonal lines, which can look very non-aliased and jagged, especially on smaller maps :(

UGH I would so screenshots but now whenever I go to weapon selection the whole game crashes.  This is going to be a pain finding the cause  :hopping:  :mad:

do you have models for weapon select enabled? you might have too many gun and missile points.

Do you have $end_multi_text lines in proper places? For example after the +Description:  XSTR ("", -1) entry?
Do not meddle in the affairs of coders for they are soggy and hard to light

 
I think I might have found at least one of the reasons why I'm having this problem... I ripped up nearly everything...
I noticed that if I replaced the custom weapons  the original ones (keyser and prom) in the ship table file everything worked ok.
I then took a Sidearm weapon data and slightly adjusted it bit-by-bit into this

Scooby_Doo, try putting spaces throughout the tables, like $Name: @Tachyon Cannon

and put the line after +Description with +Description. :)

Oh my! Thanks Windrunner! people actually like my work LOL

As for the Description problem... for the moment i just pasted the weapons name into the description.. that seems to solve the problem.

Heres some in-game shots in windowed debug mode. One thing I've noticed at least with the ancient Geforce 2 it's not the polycount that kills it, it's the multi-texturing.

The Pirahna seems to rather sluggish in-game... at least with Surrender Bel... course this computer fits into the "too slow" category.


Also question...is there an easier way to create/modify vp's instead of doing vpmake then vpmage?
