What's the reactor look like now?

I spend months on the mesh. I redraw high-res versions of all the maps. I make tedious height maps and normal maps. I retexture the entire model with a UV map for performance. I wrestle with the Max exporter and with PCS to reassign turret normals. I patch up collision errors. I take screenshots and upload the model to the public.

And what are you interested in? What do you want to see, above and beyond anything else? What, amidst all this labor of love, do you ask about?

The reactor. The one part I haven't done yet.

...

Screw it. Next time I post a 'release' it's gonna be a computer virus.

Aw, don't be that way.  Aardwolf is just a n00b ... he'll learn someday.  Nothing he said changes the fact that this is amazing work. :yes:  I wish I could model like that :(

Great job on the karnak, can't wait to actually see it in action.

I've haxed into the FSPort internal.  This is what the reactor looks like

I'd actually be incredibly pleased if it was. God, I love Descent.

...this is starting to look more like Descent or Star Wars already. ;7

I like this new Karnak. In fact, I've always liked the Karnak because it's round and Vasudan. ;)

Nobody's allowed out over here anyway.   I nominate E (as a fair and just overlord) to arrange a Zoom HLP Social.

I've always wondered how the Vasudans would have built something as large as the Karnak...


but this is a huge improvement.

...they flew out to space and dumped the base materials before going back to Vasuda Prime and getting more materials? :nervous:
