That yellow band was a detail that Bob added in; it's actually a raised panel rather than a cutout or whatever it appears to be.  I agree though that it breaks continuity, and I actually have changed it so that the square is unbroken.  Again, I'll commit that fix with the others.

Ulala: for the last time: I am not, I repeat, am not changing the textures other than select placement.  It's an Orion, first and foremost, and should inherently use the same maps as the original.

I wasn't asking you to, it was just a suggestion in response to the posts before about the texture scheme. Besides, it's your work, so it should be the way you think is best.

I'll be honest, I think th'biggest improvement was cuttin' down on th'tiling.  The blue map was really overtiled in Bobboau's original, an' I think a lot o' th'texture complaints were comin' from just that.  Galemp requested th'scene, so he may have an update a little later, but it'll just be texturin' (and maybe some better radar dishes).  It can hie in th'VP as th'version posted above.

I think we should ban this model for being too awesome.

Nuts to that. Is that why HLP was down earlier? So they could get this in?

Yeah, the Orion's in the mediaVPs, which means that the final versions will be online sometime soon.

Good stuff. :yes:

I've a little error with the Orion...
Well... There's a "thing" (looks like a rock?!?!) attached...
And it doesn't matter if I re-install it or delete the ibx-file...
I used the newest cvs-tree-build (03 April 2005 - ~14:30 CET)

Have you tried re-downloading it?

Unfortunately this doesn't help, too...

Redownloaded it, unzipped it several times, deleted the cache (*.ibx)...
But still the same, scary, big "rock" is attached ;)

:yes: :yes:  I thought it might sound churlish to ask for better radar dishes, so I'm glad to see that you are already thinking about upgrading them. The textures on them don't really seem radar like, and they are a very basic shape. Thanks again for all your effort in bringing this model to life!
If a man consults whether he is to fight, when he has the power in his own hands, it is certain that his opinion is against fighting.

 
Okay... The "rock"-thing happens under Windows, too...

Any VPs installed?  It looks like the spacehunk remapped.

The orion is a bit weird anyway:

For over 30 years, the GTD Orion class was the largest ship in the Terran-Vasudan armada. Over two kilometers in length, bristling with dozens :wtf: of death-dealing turrets, the Orion is as awesome in repose as it is in battle. All GVTA:wtf: Orions have been retrofitted with the latest anti-warship beam weapons, as well as flak:wtf: and AAA turrets for dealing with fighters and bombers. The Orion's cavernous hanger bays easily accommodate more than two dozen fighter or bomber wings.
