No, two of them clearly are gunpointed. He's talking about the lower sets of four, not the upper (missiels)
actualy, mabye not.

....especially since I have a feeling that the pilot was improperly brought into the ship resulting in a 4m tall giant.

I think the model would be good, but the new nose put me off...and the thing coul be a tad more smoothed poly wise.

Highres maps are available for a long long time for the HercII, actually.

And no, the second draft isn't any closer than the first one. Chopping it up will do the HercII no good.

What're you talking about? It's not seperated at all! The big bulge in the back is a panel line shown on the texture, or a close approximation of it, and the front is seperated because the panel lines also suggest it!
And I'm talking about UV maps---I don't know how to do them.

Flaser: take a look at the old model. It's even worse than this one. The nose is rounded.

Unknown,
Could you post a straight side view of the model, instead of the orthagonal views we have seen? I don't see that its 'chopped' either, but maybe a different view might help.
If a man consults whether he is to fight, when he has the power in his own hands, it is certain that his opinion is against fighting.

Here. It's missing one side because I'm going to UV map the other side, then duplicate it over.
Also in case you haven't noticed, I've been working on the UV mapping. This is my first time, so it's not that great, and it's hard to tell details, because I'm usinv V's old low-res texture:

Here. The UV mapping is pretty bad because I can't UV map, otherwise, it's done:

not bad... but IMO it looks identical to the first one (sans the cockpit)

A-1 SUPAR on the model. Those recessed side panels weren't so great, but the new one is perfect.

Its lookin good to me. Just needs better textures.

How do I get them?
 I can't get them out of the VP's because they are in DDS format, and Adobe PS7 can't read that.

I don't like the armour plate thingies. They're too big, or rather the gaps between the plates are too big. They should be subtle little lines, not bloody great gaps you can shoot through. Apart from that, it's looking good.

Hence the reason why it looks chopped up.

Smaller and they wouldn't be very noticable in game, I think.

That's why they're useless in the first place. Focus on extending the existing shape.

*bump* so does anyone want this thing?

It's honestly not that bad if you look at it in 3D, the viewing angles in the screenies really warp it.
