Re: Weapons! We need YOUR help!
Well heres what I have for the emp so far.  Not sure if the bit at the back is meant to be fins or sort of round like I have done it. Any ideas? Am I even doing the right weapon? I found two versions of the emp in "sparky_fs2.vp" and another in "mv_models.vp"

Re: Weapons! We need YOUR help!
Those are the low-poly models you're looking at. For reference you really want to see the FS1 animations. Do you have them?

yep. :D It's there so people will stop bugging me, asking what I'm doing, and to prove I am working.

Re: Weapons! We need YOUR help!
Nice work so far. It could definitely pass for an in-game model.

Try to get a few more details on there, like the little capsules around the nose. And double check the proportions on the engines, I think it's more of an X than a square.

I'm also very happy to see it textured. :nod:

Re: Weapons! We need YOUR help!
Yea, I was making it as the in game one. Figured it would be easier for me as I havent done 3d stuff for years. Is the 100 polys recomended or max? I'm at 84 faces at the moment, not sure how that translates to polys but I know its prety close to the limit. I was trying to get the x at the back and capsule things with the texture, instead of adding more faces.

Re: Weapons! We need YOUR help!
Oh, that's just something rough to go by. You'll only be seeing it onscreen for a fraction of a second before it becomes tiny, after all, so use your discretion.

Oh, you mean the railgun and VLL tech models? I can try to do that, I suppose

Re: Weapons! We need YOUR help!
Alright, i'm working on the railgun now, i'll see if I can post some screenshots later today.

EDIT: Here we go. Needs more detail, I know, Tell me what you think:






Edit 2: What exactly needs to be done other than the model itself? I can export with no problems (not that it matters in this case) from SU as .3ds, and you'll texture/animate it?

Edit 3: ....And I have too much time on my hands. I'd call this finished, but if you want any details added let me know.

That looks nice, but I think it needs a little more hardware to attach it to something. Maybe take the back end and scale it up 200%. As it is, 80% of the length is taken up by the barrel; it should be prominent, but be about proportionate to the Maxim.

The back -does- need more, but i'm not entirely sure what to do with it. it's better than the shield breaker, at the very least.

How about a belt-feed for the ammo?

Aye, that would be neat-looking (though I'm not sure they would use something like that (as far as realism))

Re: Weapons! We need YOUR help!
It's a railgun... railguns aren't belt-fed... and in any case, it's an energy weapon... :doubt:

Just something big and chunky, like you'd find on the back of any other Terran weapon.
