I did release a version with turrets, though they were just for show.

I know, that's the one I was refering to.  Half the multiparts were grossly out of position though, so I want people to ignore them.  I'm using your turrets on the upgrade though, just repositioned them.  I really like what you did with the little side guns, too, makes the detail much better.

I think that Kie's images make it look a lot more squished than it really is........
"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

Let me clarify, do you have a link to the thread where bob released his orion, because i cant find it.
actualy, mabye not.

Oh, is that all?  That link has been available in the "HTL Status v2" thread at the top of this forum the whole time.  Anyway, it's in this thread, page 4 IIRC.

I think the model suits EA textures better (the Auriga is a double hangared Orion with EA turrets instead of the old style ones)

IMO that's pretty fugly.  No offense to whoever made the EA textures, but it doesn't look right to me.

 
Well it's just the 'original' HTL Orion with EA textures applied in place of the old ones. Since Stratt's done a better job of the texturing the model with his version, I hope ours will look a bit better as well if we do the same again with our textures.

I think it's largely due to a lack of contrast in terms of shade.

Release time :)

Bob's HTL Orion v1.1 - now with glowpoint goodness.  All POF data created specially for this model and everything should be set up to work correctly the first time around with no table modification, i.e. it's plug-and-play.  Debris included at no extra charge :).

Oh, and it was the right length all along, but the lowest LOD was offset by about 200 meters and made modelview read it out as longer than it was.  It's fixed now but the actual length is and has always been within 2 meters of the original.

Oh, I'm going to add runway glowpoints eventually; should they flow in or out of the bay?

I also say out. Looks neater.


Also would be nice to have that glowing strip thing on the runway, would probably require a new seperate runway texture though.

The second LOD looks like the original orion minus turrets.  That shows progress!

Yeah I was an idiot and stuck the low LOD turrets on the wrong LOD level.  I may fix that eventually.

That glowing strip on the runway is absolutely not worth the texture memory costs it'd take to make it glow the way it should.  What I've done with glowpoints should be close enough.  I didn't go overboard with the things, by the way, just put in a bunch on the runway and a few around the dockpoint.  The rest of the ship looks glowy enough without them.  Link updated, same place and I'll add it to the first page.

I was thinking you could use a 1x32 or somthing texture of just a dot moving down and tile that across the runway.

And yes, the orion does appear unnaturaly bright for some reason.
