A question about high-poly remodels
Its very nice, makes playing Homesick alot more fun ... which is actually the campaign that made me hate the original Deimos (since you spend so much time following it etc).  The thread talked about a fighter bay; I don't see the controversy - the Deimos is what, 600 meters long?  Homesick (for example) has 8 fighters, and its in frickin space so you just need a modern-day DD style chopper garage.  Such a thing could be hidden just about anywhere on a 600m ship, although the wierd underside superimposed engine arrangement makes that area unusable.  But I guess I'm just old fashioned :)

In that thread remodeling the Orion was mentioned; I think the Orion needs some tough decisions to be made about it before anything like that can happen.  A minor remodel (for details like the sensor antennae, turrets etc) and a reskin would be enough IMO.

Its a bit odd that noone has done any Vasudan or Shivan ships.  Vasudan ships don't appear to require much detail, what with all their curves.  The GVD would be a major project tho, given its bizarre geometry.

Compared to the original, anything would give that impression :)  I like it, probably because I can't imagine what else someone would do with the huge flat surfaces on the original.

What other hi-poly stuff is in the works?
"The reason for this is that the original Fortran got so convoluted and extensive (10's of millions of lines of code) that no-one can actually figure out how it works, there's a massive project going on to decode the original Fortran and write a more modern system, but until then, the UK communication network is actually relying heavily on 35 year old Fortran that nobody understands." - Flipside

there was a persius made by Neco before he left, but Nico's relese policy wasn't as liberal as mine, so I don't know if he relesed it or not before he left.

There was a hi-poly Medusa being worked on.  A thread containing some wip images was created at about the same time Bob showed off his Deimos.  There's also Nico's Perseus, but there actually is a finished pof for that.  I believe Karma has been occasionally working on an improved Lucifer.  There was one released for Inferno, but it has no shield mesh and has considerably more turrets.  I've also seen starts on the Seth and Thoth, but they've never gotten too far.

Later!

I have starts on sevral ships, never realy get anywere with them though, I think the Dragon re-mod is closest curent one I have and it only has like 40% geometry if even that.

HTL remodels bore the **** out of me, to be honest, I always prefer to work on original models.

Even when it takes almost 2 months to texture a fecking capship *grumble*.

He released it. I know cause I use it :)

Check out the thread where he said his goodbyes.

A question about high-poly remodels
Off the top of my head, High poly ships are

Perseus (Done)
Herc (done)
Fenris (Done)
Anukhet (Done)
Deimos (Done)
Myrmidon (Done)
Mjolnir (Modelled, textured)
Triton (Modelled, textured)
Medusa (Modelled?)
Alastor (Watchdog?) (Modelled?)
Seth (Modelled?)
Thoth (Modelled?)
Lucifer (WIP)

I'm sure there are others that I've missed though.

Someone should rebuild Nico's perseus with a normal cockpit - it's a shame I can't use it because of his modelled cockpit.

To add to BW's list; Raptor was working on a new Aleous. :)
Anyways, as of yet unreleased HTL Triton:





Slightly outdated in-game shots:

It's completely finished (has been for a while) except for the new turrets - waiting on Raptor for them since he'd finished modeling them, but he seems to have vanished for the time being. :\

Incidentally, I did the texture work on the fenris and completed it for in-game use. :)

That triton actually looks very nice.  Of course, the original was such a ****ing mess it wouldn;t be hard.

I found a crapload of stuff...but it looks like you guys have posted most of it. Fricken' school. If only I had more time...I would have beaten you to it!

Well, there's got to be some lost model out there...and i'll find it!

It's ugly, and prevents a nice reflective cockpit 'cause there's no texture on it.

I am working on the Hecate. It will probably be a while before I have anything worth showing though.

Someone fix up the perseus and Triton for in-game use then :)

Oh, and remember: Try keeping the number of textures used on the model low - consider baking parts of it. Using two large textures is A LOT faster than using several smaller ones.
