I know a bunch of INFR1 models are getting makeovers. Are there any plans to revamp this ship or to do something else in its place?

If not, mind if I stake a claim on it? And make it roughly 3x larger, as a counterpart to the SOC Oculus? I'd like a Vasudan spinny sciencey thingy for something.

I promise it will be less phallic. Unless you have a really twisted imagination...

This model was dropped so long time ago... Most of us probably forgot to death about it's existence.
I think you don't need our permission. A lot of vessels from first release of Inferno were upgraded by other teams [like Boreas and Icelus for Shadow Genesis, or Warlock for SoA]. This is very old asset, and as far as I remember, it was never used in main Inferno campaign. I don't remember if we have something like this in our actual campaign, but if we do, it's probably Setekh.

Go ahead and show what you've done :D

It will be hard to make it something more than Vasudan d*** with the windmill :D

Alright, I'm on my way. Will post WIP shots when it's more than 200 polies.

As promised.



This is partially based on the Setekh concept art (right side of this image.) I have textures well underway, but it needs more work. If any of your master artists want a crack at it I'd be happy to distribute the WIP.

Oh, that's a sweet thing. Is it for Scroll? But I don't like the engine section that much, it doesn't look really Vasudan. Also, what is the role of this ship? I always thought a post-Capella AWACS (if it is one) would be less fragile, but maybe thats just my imagination...

Scroll is using the GVSC Nidaba, also by me, which is based on the other half of that same concept art!

No, this is for... something else. ;7 It's a post-Capella Vasudan science cruiser / research station and not meant for front-line combat. As I mentioned earlier it's going to be substantially larger than the INFR1 Neith, with HP to match.

I could never get the hang of Vasudan engines. Its not too late to change them, I'm just not inspired. Maybe I'll just say the Terrans built them.

Hmm maybe some sort of inverted U-shape with 5 exhausts or so for the engines?

I don't follow. Can you show me a sketch?

Well, I try...

To me it looks like all 4 engines are seperate. To make the rear (a bit) more Vasudan looking I would connect the 2 at the top with each other, about this way (O is for the engines):


  /O==O\
 ///       \\\
/O         O\

It wouldn't take too much time in case it turns out to be bad looking :nervous:

Oh, I see. Break up the radial symmetry a bit, you mean? I can see how that would help! Okay, I'll give it a shot.

Yep! :)
I'm not 100% sure but I think I have never seen a Vasudan engine like that before. In particular I like how it now reflects the design of rest of the model. :yes:

It's simple, geometrically, but it does call back to the original low-poly model much more closely.

Wasn't the low poly model an upscaled missile with fins? :P

I remember I rescaled that thing once to use it as some long-range missile like the Trebuchet...

Here's a download link to the package. It's assumed you know where these things belong.
