Now that looks seriously cool, apart from the oversized glows!

The glows shrink rapidly. They're only that solid when they're really really close to your ship.

-edit: and those are taken with an erinyes in double fire mode: double the glow at the position ;)

That's weird, since mine here worked :confused:

be sure to replace the .tbl

there's no reason for it not to work now anymore.

While I agree that some missile are not worth doing, to me anything larger than a harpoon (ie trebuchet and above) should be redone.  I use trebs ALOT and that V made 6 sided block is ugly as hell!

The uglyness of the bombs (cyclops, Helios, Tsunami and Harbinger) are what started me off, and the hornet was really a test of how close to the images I could make these.  I based LOD0 on the tech anims.

Hornet - V: 44, 20, 13
Hornet - mine: 388, 181, 85, 28

So far I've not noticed any slowdown when missiles are fired.  Included when double firing Hornets.

I've got a Shivan Treb LOD0 made, 325 polys.  Still need to add a few fins to the Shivan Hornet.

Is there a way to set LOD distances for missile models?  If so, then we can set it up so that LOD0 is only used within 50-100m, and so on.

Oh, lightspeed, I'm not getting your pics, except the new Kasyer one.:confused:

Errr, I did the highlight and forgot to say so. You're welcome. ;)

Ah.

If you disliked the last pair, you will hate these:


The Shivan 'Trebuchet' on the left, at 325 polys, and a Shivan 'Hornet' on the right, 390 polys.  No lower LODs yet.

Edit: oh, bad .jpg compression. I'll upload a new pic.

good, once you've got the LODs and made a simple POF, send them over and i'll make good use of them :D

-edit: this also applies to the terran ones :)

I dunno, guys. Hi-poly missiles? I'm imagining how many of them will be on screen at once (particularly the hornets and their derivatives), and how much you'll actually be able to see that detail. :nervous:

Okay, I add stand-in maps for the Shivan ones, make LODs for them, then send them.

The UVmapping will be cylindrical along the missile body.  Means flat ends get messed up, but if the only place that is so is the back, under the engine glow, then who cares?

One thing: should I create thruster plumes for them? I've never managed to get them working.:blah:

To reassure all those worryed about framerate, I'll run a test on my CPU.

I'm not so much worried about the framerate - but I'm worried about much work for little/no gain. I haven't noticed that the current missile models are horridly detailed - that is, they're not at all - and time can be spent much better putting detail on stuff like a Cain-class cruiser, you know? ;)

no worries about the thrusters.

:)

And i'll run some tests too :nod:

-edit:

@Setekh: yes, but think progressive. Don't you imagine a time where we can put a spinning model in the weapons screen if no ANI is specified? just like it was (someone removed it?) with the ship selection :)
