Re: Some more models coming down the line...
Do you map using the uvw modifier? I can't seem to generate templates. I'm gonna go back to the stock tutorials and see if i missed something.

 
Re: Some more models coming down the line...
I use the UWV Map modifier (it produces square/cylindar/sphere..etc style mapping) only when it offers speed over Unwrap UWV.  For examples, a cylinder (a gun or the Arbalast's hull) would probably benifit from uwv map cylindar style best, another example is like the bearcat, where the majority of the upper/lower surface is flat.  Of course once I've set it up using Map, I still need to use the Unwrap UWV (which lets you directly manipulate the coords) to move/scale/rotate the results to fit texture space.

Another early WC5 sketch, this time the Panther.

it's in it's very early design, nicknamed so far, Katana


And an even more primitive design, just started the other  night, wasn't aware of the CDF Interceptor at the time... This one's probably going to change quite a bit before it sees the light of day again.

Re: Some more models coming down the line...
Mh for missions down on a planet...yes I could see a use then but for a strict space fighter it wouldn't make much sense. I have allways asked myself why no one would paint his fighter just black with some small white dots as kind of a space camo ^_^
The shadows from Babylon5 are the only ships I know of that are actualy have this kind of "space camo". Still I know that its mostly not done because it would be hard for any SF show/game to have just black ships. It would frusttrate the player/viewer when he sees nothing at all.

The Horror?

Metal Gear Solid 3 reference, or statement expressing "your" horror?

I like to think it could happen :nod:

Sig nuked! New one coming soon!

Re: Some more models coming down the line...
Nice Scooby,
I'm still trying to find a decent texture mapping program.
I may try Maya 6 from a buddy.
TrueSpace & Blender seem really clunky for handling it.
Lithuwrap seems to lose the points and refuse to give me orientation in the proper direction on the parts as well.
I am curious, do you section your meshes, map the textures, then recombine the sections?
