HTLZ Orion...Returneth!
Currently, the Orion uses ALL stock textures...and ONLY those that normally come with the stock Orion (except for 1 - the installation texture)

ERm...no wait, it does use one special texture for the engine...at least till I can figure out if any stock texture can be used to make a nice engine...

Grumble..It converted once (wrong scale...ended up 110 meters long), but it doens't want to do it again...DIEEEEE PCS2!!!!!!!!!!!!! :hopping: :mad: :hopping: :mad:






8693 polies total for detail 0 (without debris)

EDIT - Yes, I have the FS1 version with 16 turrets done too ;)

Kaz, Bobbau, help me out here...PCS chraches when saving...it converts it fine and it's driving me CRAZY! Crazy I tell you :eek:

Re: HTLZ Orion...Returneth!
Pretty good but no offense, I might keep the media VPs one, because you added more guns.

Re: HTLZ Orion...Returneth!
Can you also just use the normal map (capital01-05) instead of the "invisible/green/0,255,0" nameplate one?

Why? It's less work to make naplates ith a green one...or a .dds one for that matter...you don't have to worry about the background..

It doesn't "blend", though.

Re: HTLZ Orion...Returneth!
Sheesh, set the letters to 80% transparency and part of hte structure of hte texture beneeath shows...ends up looking like it's painted, just like capital01-05...

the advantage of the "pure name" nameplate is that you can apply it to any ship, but that's not that big of a bonus... :blah:

Re: HTLZ Orion...Returneth!
I actually have to say that it looks too blocky. Now most of us agree that the Orion was a big blocky ship, but that's really pushing it!

Wow, nothing happened!

On-topic: I'm not saying it looks bad, but it seems a bit more blocky then previous Orions.

Re: HTLZ Orion...Returneth!
F'course nothing happened..you don't have the death stare like I do...or laser vision :p

And nope, it's not more blocky..maby it appears so..you have to see in action, not in a few pictures.

It's as close to the original as possible, while being FAR more detailed. After all I did use my older model and add to it, modify it...

Re: HTLZ Orion...Returneth!
IMHO, that's largely subjetive then..
To me Bob's Orion looks like it lost that armored feel  - with the armor belt too broken up and setup differently than the stock orion...not to mention that new textuer that looks like it belongs on a freighter and not a warship :doubt: (no offense Bob)
In fact, that's why I started to work on this in the first place...

Re: HTLZ Orion...Returneth!
Ok, this is by far the best mesh I've seen you produce. To the best of my knowledge you've not put this level of detail into anything I've seen.

What confuses me is that you say you made this because you didn't like how Bob handled it with his. Well....



It's the same story with the textures visible too. I don't know about you, but to me it looks like you went for a _very_ similar style to Bob. ;)

Also, your saving crash is being caused by either your main debris, turret-destroyed models or your radar dishes - look into those. My guess would be the main debris.

Re: HTLZ Orion...Returneth!
Yes, they are similar, aren't tehy...Bob's has few thing s I like very much...however some differences are obvius - mainly the armor belt..and some of the texturing.

But I now noticed a few things that could use some tweaking.

Oh, to further optimize it I'm gonna re-do the engines and drop that texture..so the ship will end up using LESS textures than Bob's :D

And VA, thanks for hte tip..I'll try to pin donw the offending sub-model.
