After I'm done with Op:UG Ep.2, I'm going to start work on a new FS2 Campaign.  It's going to deal with the development of the GTXF Excalibur, the Thor cannon, and the GVXF Amon-Ra, and the emergence of a new Shivan fighter, the SF Minotaur.  So far I have concept sketches of all the fighters and a unskinned model of the Excalibur. (I still need a texture artist or a good tutorial on how to make textures w/o PSP and applying them in Blender. Also, why did all those holes pop up in my model after I converted it from DXF to COB?) The two names I'm thinking about are the Excalibur Project and The Sword, The Hammer, and The Sun.  If you have any ideas for the campaign, you are a texture artist willing to help me, or you want to tell me which name you like better, post a reply on this thread.

If you'd like, email the concept pics to me ( [email protected] ) and I can put them up for viewing by everyone else.  

As for Blender modelling, I highly suggest you talk to Max Sterling. He's an expert in modelling, and you can contact him here:  [email protected] . He's very knowledgeable and if you want to learn off anyone, Max would be at the very top of the list.

Blender doesn't UV map by default, so that you'll probably have to do in trueSpace. Texturing too.

But I think it does have information about how to make beams properly.

I meant doesn't have information regarding the terms used to make beams.

Beams... you mean the weapons?

Shouldn't that belong in a Weapons tutorial, not a Ship Creation tutorial?

I can't seem to find your picture either - tell you what, email it to me, and I will upload it to the HLP servers.

I understand all the talk about modding and the evils of Geocities, but considering that Maeglamor fixed my modding problems and Setekh posted the pic of the Excalibur (which Maeglamor helped me fix   ), does anyone have any ideas or suggestions for my campaign?

I've done a rework of the GTXD Mars, coincidently my name is derived from Mars.

Martin, god of war!! (Quite a title eh?         )

           
             

Needs some detail but I hope the design pleases

This design is the new official design of the Mars. If you missed it, Maeglamor is the Official Head Modeler of the campaign.
