...requesting immediate reinforcements!"








As you can see the mapping is still kitbashed, and should be adjusted by someone far more talented than me.

Wow. That is AMAZING!! :)
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.

Da-ha-ha-ha-am! I LIKE it. It may be kitbashed, but it looks good to me.

Looks great. Some of the mapping is weird, but I can safely say I'm in love with the cockpit job. :D:yes:

Very sharp looking mapping job. :) Unless I'm really missing something, I don't see any major changes to the model besides the cockpit; please correct me if I'm wrong.

There's a lot of extra detail there.  I think Galemp would be offended if you did a comparison and still thought they looked exactly the same.  I can point to just about any part of that ship and see what he's done.  The detail in the engines alone should tip you off to this being a complete job.

GE, apparently people don't believe the model's been touched if you don't provide an unmapped render.

One small detail... if it's going to be the "regular" Apollo then loose the damage detail... they don't make these things half crippled ;)

Interesting that it swaps the position of the guns and missle launchers.  I imagine in playtesting they discovered that it was impossible to hit anything with guns mounted so far away from the centerline.

Which is probably why :v: switched them in the map and on the model in the first place.  There's more than one ship like that in both FS1 and FS2.

If anything, what threw me off is that the nose still looks like it's on the low-poly side.  I thought that the engines looked improved, but it's been a while since I've seen the original Apollo.  Sorry if I came across as ignorant.  I think an unmapped shot would really give a better sense of what improvements have been made.

Wireframe, original maps and cutscene maps.

I think that what would really make the model would be to add in the FLIR like thing mounted under the nose.  The lower structure there does seem plain in comparison to the rest of the model.

It does stick out quite a ways under the nose.





Mind you that's not to say that the model isn't 1000 times better than before, which it is... :)

All right, those animations make it blatantly obvious enough for me. :p I didn't realize that what I called "low-poliness" was actually present on the cutscene model as well; I guess that's just the way that :v: intended the nose to look.  Very nice job. :) Though I'd have to say that, if we could get the above model in-game, I might have to lend my support to that one. :p
