Title: RELEASE: GTSD Bastion
Post by: Mobius on December 19, 2010, 04:47:02 am
GTSD Bastion

This hasn't been posted on the Inferno forum because it most likely won't be used in INF. As you can see, this superdestroyer has been named after the Orion that saved humanity twice.

Model - Pscyho and United Space Team
Conversion - Woomeister
Maps - FreeSpaceKing

Released with Pscyho's permission

Holy ****, what a coincidence, I was just looking at the older versions on United Space a couple of days ago and was meaning to ask if anyone had it.

Thanks. :)

That's a coincidence, indeed! Are you interested on the original armaments of the ship? I modified the INF table entry to use default FS2 weapons, so I don't know what the original one was armed with. Woomeister should have that table entry, though.

Sure! That'd definitely be a nice thing to have.

Just a warning that this model is really old, there were holes and other major problems with it which I fixed up as best I could.
And yes I did get permission to release it from Psycho before anyone asks :)

I, actually was planning on HTLing it. If you still have a 3ds or obj file that'd really help a lot, to get proportions, etc right, and I can't get it myself because I don't have truespace and my blender is borked.

Actually, I've known about the ships for several years, and I've always liked the design. Definitely a classic it seems.

Hades I've sent you a PM about the 3DS version

Ah seems the version Mobius uploaded was missing a few files, I've uploaded a fixed version (same links) so you'll need to redownload if you're missing the turret maps, sorry about that.

Shame on me.

The file is waiting authorization again (just like the Phoebus) so you need to wait.

You could upload the updated version to freespacemods.net, I can approve it since I'm an admin.

Woomeister has the correct file now, so he'd rather to that himself.

Or you could just wait. It won't be long, afterall. :)

Awesome textures, but needs new shinemaps.

My god... Does the Bastion win the award for longest model to be released?

:)

Thanks for somehow getting in contact with Psycho. A few years ago I think I asked a US member about it and best they could do was shrug. Heh...

So much thanks you guys!

Ooh, very cool. :):yes:

Now, finally, can the United Space campaign itself be released? :p  When I talked to Snipes/Raa/Taristin back on the VWBB lo these many years ago, he said that the only thing keeping the campaign from being posted was the completion of the Bastion model.

What was that campaign about? Until Woo showed the Bastion off on INF internal, I didn't know anything about it.

Uhm, I have a question! The release thread says GTSD, but the table says GTVDn. Which one is believable?

Uhm, I have a question! The release thread says GTSD, but the table says GTVDn. Which one is believable?

I'm nothing to do with inf but I would say both can be applied, SD is a cannon designation from the Lucifer (SSD) but using dreadnought to designate a super destroyer/ship that exceeds destroyer scale also works, SD works better for one off ships in my opinion and Dn works better for a more mass produced class.  GTV says to me that the design is not specific to either species but to the GTVA as a whole so if you want to use it as an Orion replacement then you can go GTDn.  It's one of those what ever works for you moments.

GTVDn was the original designation from the United Space campaign, so I changed it back when I updated the model for the missing textures.

As I understood the expanded FS naming scheme, a Dreadnaught is a ship of destroyer class or larger, which is primarily a gun-equipped ship, with either no fighterbay at all, or only a very small one that can carry the bare minimum of fightercraft, or perhaps just for carrying escape pod and shuttles.  Think of it more like a large corvette.
Title: Re: RELEASE: GTSD Bastion
Post by: Mobius on December 25, 2010, 11:21:38 am
Well, the way I see it, the Dreadnought is supposed to be stronger than a superdestroyer, but that's a matter of PoV.
Title: Re: RELEASE: GTSD Bastion
Post by: Hades on December 25, 2010, 12:05:29 pm
Actually I'm pretty sure the already-in FreeSpace counterpart of dreadnought is the superdestroyer class.

Though they usually feature something new, like the Lucifer with its shield system and beam cannons, also the Hades which is the only real terran-shivan hybrid, it uses Shivan technology (including weapons) on a Terran hull.

None of this is canon, it's up for whomever wants to use it to decide.
