Re: Weapons! We need YOUR help!
Harbinger's done. I'm working on in-game models for the other missiles, so the VP isn't updated yet.

I hope the Harbinger looks like the evil salted nuke it is?

 
Re: Weapons! We need YOUR help!
D-Missile! My model looks a bit too simple in my opinion. What do you think?

The head needs something, perhaps a flared section.

Re: Weapons! We need YOUR help!
I don't think it's a case of simplicity. The model looks great in my opinion, but there are a few minor "issues" that stand out. For one, the opening at the front of the missile should have a larger radius than that of the missile's body. Second, the "bulge" that appears at a point just after the shadow on the missile's body should be symmetrical and smooth. From the original images, the bulge appears spherical, but I will leave that up to everyone else to confirm this. In your model, the section that I am referring to is wider at the rear than at the front, and this appears to be inconsistent with the original images. I am sure you have already checked out these images and used them to form the basis of your model, but here they are to illustrate my points:



How's the Stiletto coming along?

EDIT:

I was completely wrong about the rear section of the D-Missile. From another point of view, it's obvious that you were on the right track.

The link in the first post has been updated with the Harbinger ANI and - at long last - the badly needed new Interceptor in-game model!

Re: Weapons! We need YOUR help!
:yes: Amazing work as usual, GalEmp.  Just one thing ... the Interceptor tech model is called Incerceptor-tech.pof, but in the tables, it is Interceptor_tech.pof (note the dash vs underscore).

The Interceptor was always my favorite looking missile.

Yeah, too bad the only in-game model was a box with a triangle sticking out of one end.

Finally a normal interceptor model. I had to replace the original FS1/FSPort Interceptor model used in SAH with the Interceptor III from Earth Defence for a better view. Now I'll be able to change it to a canon looking model.

 
Re: Weapons! We need YOUR help!
I've finished the stiletto and D-missile and have uploaded them.

M87: Thanks for the feedback. About the opening at the front of the D-Missile, I thought the front was larger than the body at first but then I realized they are actually the same size in this picture:


I'm now working on the Tsunami.

Re: Weapons! We need YOUR help!
oh sweet.

And so you folks don't think I'm doing nothing, I've finished the tech model for the Synaptic. In-game models and an updated VP will be available this weekend.

Re: Weapons! We need YOUR help!
Jeez, these are looking incredible. Your truly giving the FS1 stuff a new lease of life here. :cool:

I must confess, one thing i am looking foward to seeing is the Prometheus. It had a really cool design, but the Port has always used the FS2 version for the weapon ani so you never got to see it.

Re: Weapons! We need YOUR help!
yeah, and blue trails too. That change was totally unnecessary.

Anyway, the Synaptic model is all done, as promised. Find it in the first post.

Re: Weapons! We need YOUR help!
Cool!

I wonder if it would be possible to make an new cluster baby model from part of the synaptic model... ;7

And the interceptor name bug still exists.
