That ship definitly needs a new texture job - the current one utterly reduces the intricary of the model.

A new texture job would be nice.. and Bob's Orion looks sweet as **** when you see all of it without anything covering it up... even though there isn't any textures. Anyway, Strat, I'm looking forward to the completion... did you set all the turrets right? Because there's that one missing on her chin...
Wh00t!? Vinyl? Is it like an I-pod 2 or something?

I'm not a fan of Bob's Deimos or Orion.

The high poly Fenris, Faustus, etc. look nice. But the problem is instead of modelling the 'texture details' (despite the textures being tiled) instead they had to be totally revamped.

Oh well.

:rolleyes:

Little crude, but I'd have to agree and say I prefer the original.  I don't think you can really reskin stuff by just texture swapping nowadays, unless you redraw textures to fit the existing UV.

Like, for example, the badly stretched lights on the orion; at some points a single light stretches 100s of metres across the surface, because the old UV is different from what you'd need for the new texture.

Err... Am i the only one that got the impression the proportions are different?
It looks at least 20% larger than the original to me...

That's not a problem, FreeSpace is known about its big sizes. ;)

Your reskin does indeed look like...something unbecoming of a star ship.

:thepimp:   It looks a helluva lot better in FSO than in FS/ModelView.

Instead of hi-jacking this thread though could you please just :bump: the thread announcing the models' release.

Darnit, no one is going to touch the debris, are they :rolleyes:.  I really can't get it released in a week anyway, but my plan was to finalize size and orientation when I get back to school and release it immediately thereafter.

And I've got the original in the scene with the new Orion, the proportions all match up almost exactly.  I had to move the turrets by maybe 10 meters in any direction to get them to line up properly on one part or another of the new hull.  I even calculated the size so it would line up in MAX, but apparently there was a small rounding error somewhere that was amplified to those 100 meters.  My intention is to have the thing within a fighter-length of the original.

Well, Strat, tell me how to cut it up, and I'll cut it up.

Cool stuff, StratComm. I've been dying to fly alongside this model in-game since the first WIP screenshots. :D

Stratcomm, do you also intend to add the missing radar antennae to the model?

Will you provide a link to where the model is so people can atleast atempt to cleave it up?

I can't upload it any more than I can edit it right now.  It's the same Orion that Bob released as a hull-only WIP a while ago, cleave up that.  And I've added back the radar dishes :nod:
