F1gm3nt, do you think you could to the Serapis next? I think that ship'd really benefit from having the plating bumped out on the ridges. :nod:

Good luck doing the next ships. :yes:

Eh....Had the inlaws here all last week so not much got done. But I whipped through some stuff this weekend.

1) top & bottom armor plates & tail all beveled and smoothed




2) Maybe New gunpod


3) Overallshot


Lookin boss with the new tex maps from DaBrain & LS

Before anyone screams anything about LOD's ane env/shine maps the gun pods are UV'd to correct parts of the existing texture -and- I would have to do a new LOD for the next one down. But the gun pods are what I saw a few requests for and also what I wanted to get done first.

Now the question is, this thing is ~ 2050 polys right now and I haven't even smoothed out the cockpit yet, I -think- that'll only be about twenty-thirty more polys :yes: . So looking at the overall shot I'm not sure that I'm gonna need to do all the other missle/gunholes. Then again, the new gun pod is -very- noticable and really draws attention to the lack of depth on all the other munition holes. Opinions? Suggestions?

I beleive that they are 1024^2.

Heres some pics of the lowres textures to compare:




*Note I was messing around with the bump maps last night and forgot to turn em off for these screenies and as Maya takes ages to load I don't really wanna go back and redo them. Hence the artifacts on the around the munition holes :nervous:

You = r0x0r.

Now, make four LODs of it, each using the SAME UV MAPPING - LOD 3 would be like retail, then.

armour plates are unnoticable, waste of polys which would be better spent rounding off parts of the model. Rebuild the model instead of just adding detail.

The gunpods, and the 'wings' are fantastic, though :D

Mayhaps you're right and maybe I'll get rid of them, but as for rebuilding the whole model, I probably won't do that with the fighters, for two reasons.

1) The [V] models are perfectly fine, they just need to be spruced up which actually takes less time the rebuilding the whole model.

2) I don't think it's worth rebuilding -all- the fighters, capital ships, yes, it's worth rebuilding them because most of them are big blocky rectangular ships, which is altogether different from most of the fighter ships.

I'll think on the plates though.

you need the major layered ones, its just those little detail ones that don't need any polys.  We can do those with good shinemaps and maybe bump-mapping (someday)

I agree with the plates, but redoing the model is, in most cases, useless, at least when you know how to upgrade the details w/o screwing up the VV mappings and stuff.

it surely change the question if you can save the uvmaps (I usually can't for example, for many reasons), elseway I still prefer to rebuild all the mesh, expecially if I want to smooth bits

If I want to smooth a part of the model or even rebuild a part of the model I'll just seperate that part from the mesh and work on it individually then put it back on the mesh and weld the vertices when I'm done. Thats what I did with the gunpods. I used Lithunwrap to get the normals right for the gun tubes.

Oh, and F1gm3nt if you were working on that thing I ask you to do, then nevermind it didn't work out
