So ugly, but i think i liked it in JK.

maybe, I wouldn't reckon it's a priority ship though, and as such would be suited to a later release.

I've always wanted to do the Raven's Claw.

Never liked those ships myself to be honest. Should've gone with new YT-series designs instead.. I particularly never understood the Raven's Claw size. Whoever scaled it must have been on drugs, it's way too small to be anything but a short range fighter.

Is it worth it? 

In short, no.

In long, noooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo.

I don't like their designs, either. Especially the Raven's. The Moldy Crow is a bit better, but we don't need either of them for FotG.

Something like this before the Falcon?  Dark Forces was good and all, but that's just sacrilegious :D

Both ships look quite nice, but I don't think that FoTG needs them.

Well, it's simple enough, and the SW universe is populated by who-knows-how-many types, so I see no reason why it shouldn't be included if someone takes the time out to model it. Of course, that's if someone takes the time to model it.

There you go, Dekker. It can be your summer project: making the Moldy Crow

Shape should be a piece of cake. But UV. . . . . . That's just not my specialty. I seem to take days or even weeks. That's not a normal time is it.
Title: Re: Moldy Crow, Is it worth it?
Post by: Dragon on June 03, 2010, 10:19:41 am
It is, Esarai is still UVing a very large ship, despite having stated loooong ago.
It took at least a month to get it to 60%.

I've never even done a serious texture job. But, if you can model it and model it well, there's no reason for not going to an experienced mapper/texture artist and getting some assistance. If you make a nice asset, someone is bound to pitch in to finish it up.

About 10 years of untextured, unconverted, un-UV'd assets say otherwise.

I noticed that someone did a version of the Moldy Crow over at Turbosquid.  Doesn't look to bad with the advanced modeling.

Well...

If you want to purchase it for the team of FotG, go right ahead.

:p

 :lol:
Yeah sure, of course considering the 30 hours of time it would take for me to do it myself, $25 doesn't seem that bad.  But I don't want to steal Dekker's thunder.

The renderings do give one a better understanding of the ship's detail.
Title: Re: Moldy Crow, Is it worth it?
Post by: Black Wolf on June 18, 2010, 12:32:10 pm
Yeah- $25 bucks is a prtty good deal, dunno how well the model would work in FS though - it's very high poly and probably multiple textured, and likely not solid.

I never understood how one was supposed to see straight ahead with this ship.

Real pilots don't need to see out the front.

Well, he did have a periscope...

I assume Star Wars can one up some slanted mirrors in a tube.

Yeah, it's called a cockpit.

Lol. . . . Pit.
 
 
I forgot I was tasked with making this mesh. . . . . I need blueprints and isometric views. Wookiepedia is lacking.

Screenshots from Dark Forces I/II are probably the best you're going to get. The ship's shape is pretty basic either way.

Can anyone do me some?
My copy of ledi knight got cashed in so I could buy homeworld :polleyes:
Title: Re: Moldy Crow, Is it worth it?
Post by: chief1983 on August 06, 2010, 09:52:33 am
Not a terrible trade off.  By the way, if you still have homeworld, checkout the Homeworld Tools (http://jstonline.homeworldtrinity.org/downloads_tools.htm) page.  Specifically the video tweaker, it lets you adjust a lot of options not exposed in the original game, and make it look quite a bit nicer.

Might be worth it for historical reasons, but I'd rather have the YT-2000 from XWA :D
Title: Re: Moldy Crow, Is it worth it?
Post by: Colonol Dekker on August 12, 2010, 03:49:40 pm
The 2K is the most useless piece of crap in-universe. The cockpit "BETWEEN" the cargo forks?!?
 
Just plain ridiculous.

Title: Re: Moldy Crow, Is it worth it?
Post by: Colonol Dekker on August 12, 2010, 04:01:14 pm
Not at all :lol:
It's just a stupid design.
Outrider/2400 is superior in every way.
Title: Re: Moldy Crow, Is it worth it?
Post by: chief1983 on August 12, 2010, 04:05:19 pm
Outrider rocks, but doesn't even have cargo clamps.  I'd say the Otana's aren't really cargo clamps at all, but that they were repurposed to hold only the cockpit.  YT-1300 is superior in that it has a cockpit _and_ cargo clamps :)
Title: Re: Moldy Crow, Is it worth it?
Post by: newman on August 12, 2010, 04:06:37 pm
Personally I love both the YT-2000 and the 2400. And both way better then the moldy crow, but hey that's just me :)
