Download link, if you're lazy.)

I dredged it up and gave it a once over. Still has some work to be done but here's what there is so far.





I've put in some piping on the inside of these access tunnels and intend to do more on the inside of the reactor chamber.

Great stuff!  :yes:

Cardinal Spear will look great with this addition!

Spiffy new textures and a whole lot more polys.

How many polys is she up to?  It really looks wonderful.

Normals are already done. :)

edit: Good grief, how many of those projects are you actually contributing to?  :shaking:

Well, principal modeling and POF conversion is done BUT there's a mysterious bug I've submitted to the SCP to take care of relating to impact explosion effects.

In the meantime here's the model and upgraded textures for y'all to play with. Let me know if there's anything that can be fixed.

Very, very cool. :yes:

Did you change the dimensions of the reactor at all?  It looks like the cylinders on the top and bottom are longer than they were in the original.

The proportions are a little off, but overall it's the same size.

Alright, given feedback from Vasudan Admiral I made new debris, fixed a hole, renovated the fighterbays, and optimized the geometry saving about 5,000 polies.

Sadly I still don't know why I have those ultrahuge impact explosions on my system though it doesn't seem to happen anywhere else... even when I flush my IBX cache. If anyone else has a problem let me know, otherwise this should be the final POF.

Get the maps and reactor from the previous post, this only has karnak.pof

I'm still working on this. It's virtually all UV mapped but there's much left to do-- the multipart turret barrel textures need to be drawn, the new uv needs shine/glow/normal maps compiled, I have to export the whole bloody thing again, then make LODs for the reactor and export that.

Eventually I'll use this map for the Shah Pylon and Shah Extension which will be nice. But first things first.

Well! We're all set with the main Karnak model. Looks and performance are well above average. :D
Now I just need to make a new reactor to take advantage of the new UV map and we'll be done.


Download the UV mapped Karnak

Now, the question is... should I post this in the public forum?

:jaw: :jaw: :jaw: Gorgeous! :yes:

I was just going to say that I would post it in the public forum if it weren't a major spoiler. :)

Why not fire up Cardinal Spear and get a screenie from the Karnak mission that started it all?

Amazing!  How'd I miss this thread?

The model has a couple of collision detection errors though...

EDIT: Was this thread originally only FSPort internal?

Yep. :D
