Trade Federation battleship
I've been working on this model with intention to texture it and release it to the general public but there was an unexpected problem...My texturing abilities suck...bad. So I was wondering if you guys would want this model. It hasn't been turreted,has no LODS and has almost 8000 polys (triangulated).

Very nice. :yes:
Albeit we are facing the same problems you do: We are low on texturers, most of our models are only modelled, left unturreted and unLODed.
We could put this ship to a good use if it were textured and turreted.

Well I guess I could make LODs and probably turret it but as for texturing... I'll give it a shot and post again when(and if) I make any progress. My offer about the model remains.

it's undoubtely very nice but IMHO a bit overrounded
I don't have an idea of how big she's supposed exactly to be so I may be wrong, tho.
I mean that you could have spent those 8k polys a little less in roundings and a little more in details
Nice work BTW, can you unwrap too?

The ship is 3170 meters long according to starwars database.
Maybe I'll do another version of the model(les rounded with more detail). As for unwraping I never even tried it.

I agree with KARMA that it is too rounded.

That's too much if you ask me, but since I am not a modeller and my opinion about lower poly models is not approved, I would rather shut up.

It is rather high for the amount of detail present.

it's a bit high, and could be made better, but it isn't too much.
though that realy is pushing it, and you could probly get away with half of that.

I'm already working on a new version. I think it won't be over 5000 polys (without turrets).

I've seen a decent fly through version (wrap around inner tunnel like in the movie) for under 3k... No turrets...

Re: Trade Federation battleship
That looks pretty good. Only problems I can see are the aformentioned lack of turrets/LODs/texturing... as for the model itself, I recall there being greebling on the exterior. Then again, I could be mistaken; I hate that ****ing movie.

Re: Trade Federation battleship
Well, the Droid Control Ship has antennae and dishes arranged around the perimeter, which breaks up the monotony of the hull. When you finish this, make the core a dockable object with the outer ring (as seen in Episode II) so we can have a standard battleship hull and a Control Ship hull.
