There's no official capacity numbers for either ship. But a lot.

The Gigas has 2 fighterbays.

Hehe :p

Is 841 the final polycount for the Gigas?  I'm not saying that the pic looks outdated (in fact, that thing's looking very nice :)), but it is unusual for a capital ship to have such a low polycount, much less one as big as this.  Was that just a style decision, or is it because you haven't had a modeler to go back over it?

841 is the polycount for the basic hull. Which falls under the retail limit of 850. The polycount for lod0 with all turrets and other bits is 2248 polygons. The Icanus is 5543 polygons total for lod0.

It has different stats to the normal one. It's required for mission 5.

The shape of the Gigas is fine, it's the tiling of the textures that lets the model down. It's most apparent on the 'wings' that stretch downwards.

The Gigas is heavily tiled as you'll be flying very close to it, and the tiling prevents the textures from looking bad.

[quoteI sure wish that you could show us all the ships and allow us to read the tech description of each.[/quote]

A lot of tech descriptions are inaccurate/old and some are missing for newer ships.

*nods* damn...

Tiling makes sense if there's no one to make a detailed model. :yes:

So is that your model Woomeister, or an older one? Because I don't see how you'd have the time to both make ships and organise the mod. :shaking:

That Gigas? I made that not long after R1 as I wasn't satisfied with the R1 version, which also has several bugs in it.

I still make the occasional model, such as the new Arcas, extensions and the new Shivan cruisers, however it's very rare for me to make models now.

I also don't do HTL models. I don't have the time for those.

I maintain the modpack, make any new cb anis that are needed, Test and fix bugs. compile the new INF Builds, update/fix any models when required, make new ones now and then, and even work on some of the missions.

I really don't like the way the Gigas looks, I thought by the way it was talked about, it would strike fear into whoever saw it, and it's shape really cuts that out quick.

However the Icanus looks like a really cool ship.;)
