fix up the back, have it come to a point or something, then smooth it all (not too much) and then do a Herc 2 hi-poly.  herc 2's are unappreciated

Mmh, I've done the same for the mara ( yup :D ), I'm not convinced, you just can't see the difference, the maps swallow any detail thrown in. And I've exagerated the extrusions, let me tell you. But still no good imho.
Ah, pics, so you can see by yourself what I mean:

ooh, looks detailled enough, right?


Huh! Didn't reemember, but actually, you CAN see the difference: now it looks like ****. No wonder I've never posted about that.

Myrmy is noce, but needs to be smoothed I reckon, at least in parts. The point of the myrmidon, Herc 2 and Perseus was, IMO, a heavy handed attempt by V to demonstrate the Vasudan influence on Terran ship design, because, put simply, Vasudan = curves and these ships are noticeably curvier than their FS1 counterparts. Smoothing those curves should be at least some kind of priority IMO.

I'm sure no-one could care any less, but I think high poly fighters are a waste.  Unless you take the time to closely examine each one on the techroom, you're not going to see them long enough ingame to truly appreciate it.  

I'd rather see more of the kind of texturing imporovements that have been showcased on the Ulysses and Ares.

Just in case that offends anyone, I do appreciate the effort that is being put in by modellers.

It will be harder to notice on high poly enemy ships but I frequently carry out "inspections" on friendly fighters while I'm waiting for the action to start :D

you must remember the pof->Cob routines don't make a hierarchy ready to go cob->pof - but damned close

infact if you eliminate the parent node and get the others in the right order you get .scn hierarchy

nico, aside the fact that your mesh isn't much..optimized... I don't dislike the result, I think that the bigger prob are the maps, even applying a simple general metallic material all over the mesh except the points with the red lights would give a better result

I quite like this Mara. A pity I won't use it.

Some beveled stuff on the thrusters, extruded cockpit brace, and some beveled armor plates. I need to smooth out the cockpit braces some and maybe add a little more curvet o the cockpit glass. Hey let me know if I'm on the right track.


study dbrains and trumbars textures



Se that animeish "starburst" thingy outside the cockpit? modle that as detail.

And there goes a perfectly good pair of underpants.

edit: Venom, why do think no one would use it. Yopu've shown with the Ezecheil (sp?) that you can make ships like few, few others. The Mara looks excellent, though its true that the textures obscure the details abit. With some spiffier texures care of Lightspeed, daBrain & Co., that Mara would kick ass like nothing else. I sure would use it, and I think everyone here would too.

I agree, I like the Mara model. It looks very alien, sharp, and dangerous.

Maras nice but whats the polycount? Looks a bit too high for ingame or is it not finished?
