How about this Nico, finish the model, release it, we'll make new detailed maps, and we'll have changed the future

How about no? :D
Really, that oh so wonderful piece of work took, what, 30 minutes to do? People, just try and do the same if you want that kind of crappy upgrade, it's not any difficult. I can even make a max tutorial about how to do that, if you want, so there's no excuses like "yeah you can do that, but I can't".
There, not even a need for a tutorial, coz it's so simple: you get the mesh in max, you delete half of it ( coz there's no point detailing the same thing twice ), you right click on the mesh, choose "convert to -> editable poly", right click again, select "cut", toy around with it a bit so you understand how the tool works ( basically you click somewhere on the mesh, then some other place, hop, it'll create an edge between those two points, magic! ), you "cut" following the map ( cut two times, for inner and outer edges of each bevelled parts so you don't have to use extrude or bevel, which would mess up the UV mappings for those who don't wanna touch UVmapping with a 10 foot long trout ), then you move the resulting vertices around to create the wanted relief. You'll probably end up with unwanted vertices, then you have the second magic tool of "editable poly": you select the unwanted vertice(s), right click, "remove". Hop! the vertiex will be removed w/o deleting the polys around. Cool, heh? It will also (usually, not always, depends on the stucture of the mesh ) remove the edges around it tho so you'll probably have to cut back a few of them. Easy as pie.
SCREW CANON!

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.


Give it decent maps and it will kick ass.

I love when nobody reads what I write :doubt:
It would take excatly 1 second to optimize the mesh since I would just have to TURN OFF THAT ****ING MESHSMOOTH I KEEP MENTIONING BUT EVERYBODY KEEPS IGNORING.
For god's sake!
There, I've deleted the max file, so nobody's gonna bother me with it anymore. Good ridance, that'll teach me not to post that kind of old stuff.

study dbrains and trumbars textures



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


Actually in the last screenshots I posted it is one the -old- [V] textures in the process of being modeled, though I should point out that the "starburst" is actually different in the two examples you provided which brings me to...

I downloaded DaBtrains maps and as I mentioned above the cockpit outlining is different, along with a few other minor details so I'm cleaning it up a bit and cleaning up some UV errors that for some reason crept in when I switched the textures. The tailend has been smoothed out a bit also. I'll post more screens when I get it sorted out a bit more.
