Better than nothing. :) :yes:

Right now I'm just wishing for a Loki and Zeus model with cockpits in them (me and my daydreaming again :nervous:). The FS1 Terran fighters only have those remaining... then with some decent glowpoints and shiny effects, it'll pass off as HTL for me.

One thing I like about ships done this way is that with the cockpits and texture improvements, they can at least be put side-by-side with say, the HTL Ezechiel, and still look 'right'. Not perfectly right as with a true HTL model of course, but still presentable. Saves a fair bit of effort compared to doing up a full HTL design IMO.

I think the Artemis and Artemis DH (their rear wings are different? :doubt:) would benefit from this as well - some old thread mentioned that a true HTL one didn't really improve on quality that much for the cost of polygons used...

They'll get cockpits. Though the Ulysses probably won't

Uh they use the exact same cockpit texture as the Ezechiel.

Shoot, why of all things did I forget the Ulysses... :lol: Yeah that one can pass I guess. Odd shape is likely to blame :sigh:... the Myrmidon doesn't have a cockpit either.

:lol: Now I have this whack idea of using the Odysseus model to replace the Uly...

...but I don't have it. Ohh, whatever. :lol:

Ok, here's a new one. Its very.....unconventional. But I really like it! In fact, I would even say its my favorite fighter I've ever designed. I know its not particularly Freespace-Terran looking, but I still think its cool. I would like for it to have a cockpit if it were in the game, so I made one.

I like it. Could make into some kind of pirate fighter... you know, like the welded some engines, weapons, and a cockpit onto some salvaged metal plate.  :p

Looks like its odd layout could have been inspired by Star Wars B-Wing.

Looks like a cut-out of the Punisher's Charon platform to me. Even though it obviously isn't :nervous:

The ones that didn't work right. Yeah, that.

They're all good but the best one by far is the first destroyer. The upper frontal part of it is just asking for a beam turret there and where would its fighterbay be?
