Trashman, Venom/Nico made that model. I have the PM's, the modeldump, the permission to use it in missions, and confirmation from other people that it was him, and not you. The number of times you're trying to pass off models people have made as your own is sickening.

TrashMan made the HTL one. Venom made the low-poly one.

Whatever, 'twas a good campaign anyway.

Thank you ;)

Some campaigns get a lot of attention and whatever...threads with 30 pages...mine went rather unnoticed... :(
But I be damned if I knew why...

Snail is technically correct, however the 'HTL' Legion shouldn't be considered the de-facto standard by any means.  It's got many flaws, not least of which is the fact that the hole is all but a cylinder (cylindrically tile mapped at that) booleaned out of the side of the ship.  It's also based off of a radically different base HTL model than is used in the Media VPs, so it will look out of place as much or more so than the original low-poly one unless you're going with an all-Trashman model set.  Venom's Legion is so much better - it's more detailed for its polycount, and it's got custom textures that give it the appearance of an abandoned, burnt-out hulk that Boolean-Subtract just cannot ever convey.

Maybe not to you, but to the gastropods, since it was conceived.

HTL only makes something good if the additional polys go to making the model better.  I can't honestly say that in this case.

Also there are holes in the hull of Trash's l_egion. I was hiding in the fighterbay as I usually do with Orions blasting away enemy fighters, but I still go shot at by turrets.

No...
1. My Orion is made to follow the looks of the stock Orion far more than the madia VP one....It's basicly a more detailed stock Orion without me inventing half of the things on it or using different textures.

2. I used venoms textures + made a few of my own.. my Orion hulk has griders and steel beams jutting out and the hole is not a cylinder..I twisted and deformed it a bit before I made a hole...

You could you know..TAKE A LOOK at what youre commenting... .POFressor  :lol:

  • A one hit wonder, you still want to touch this.
If that ship is just a hulk and you want to use it for a secret base. It seems possible. As far as the hulk not being maintained, it'd probably take a good deal of overhauling for basic power, but besides that it's a dead hulk perfectly preserved after the day it died in space which is a vacuum. Since the day it fried and it floated in space, it should be just as good as the day it got fried since in a vacuum is about the best place you can preserve stuff and stuff like decay and rust won't happen.
Every pilot's goal is to rise up in the ranks and go beyond their purpose to a place of command on a very big ship. Like the colossus; to baseball bat everyone.

I won't use google for you.

An0n sucks my Jesus ring.

 
There was an Orion with a big hole through it used just like that in Transcend, but i dont think its the same one that was left floating above Deneb.

Still working on the mission people, gimme time  :D

hi,
mhh no, yes its doesnt get rusty, but theres a lot of mini meteriods they rush into it.
and so slowly the armor gets damage and where the armor after the fight is defect the meteriods damage the remaining inter systems.

but i think its a good place for a hidden base, because its a suprise.

Also, it would have been subjected to solar radiation for 60 years. Granted, it would be subjected to less because it's probably protected by the planet's magnetic field, but there are probably some highly radioactive areas on that ship.

Luna has been subjected to solar radiation for billions of years, with no magnetic field to protect it, and its surface is not radioactive...

Wouldn't really be hard, just make the current texture silvery-grey instead of blue-grey and replace the current maps with it.

Then how do people in the active ships survive?
