Re: Imperial II-class Star Destroyer Reborn
How do you know what it looks like in game?

I know it won't look like that in the current FSO renderer for the simplest of reasons that the lighting is nowhere near this quality. You can "bake" anything you want, but that never beats real time radiosity, and surely it won't beat real time self shadowing.

Quote
Once I get it mapped and lit of course, a professional renderer will look better for sure, but you can take your pick, a model that looks pretty damn good in game and is playable, or a quad core processor spending 10-15 minutes chugging away at each frame (That's about 0.07 FPS =P)

It's beautiful, brandx0, I wasn't being sarcastic at all. I am truly sad that FSO can't render it the way you can in your own renderer, or something similar to it, i.e., the FSO renderer does not make justice to the model.

Brand, you getting back on this beast now that you're done with the Falcon?  Or you have something else up your sleeve?

Since a ship doesn't fit well in a sleeve, i'd agree with newman and say a BlasTech DL 17.  :P

I have some great news everyone:  The model's done!  Now it's time for texturing, but here's a shot for us:

Make sure it has Hot Rod Flames...  or Bunn..ies

Perhaps Bunnies on Fire if you need to compromise.

Re: Imperial II-class Star Destroyer Reborn
I was thinking more of a rainbow overall colouring.  Maybe that's a bit much, how about fuchsia with rainbow trim?

Re: Imperial II-class Star Destroyer Reborn
And here's the turret masters that I've just done up.  Now I need to place them.  (There's a little guy added for scale)

Updated:  I forgot there was a triple barrel version, so I turned the dual cannon into an Ion instead.

Can we park the completed Falcon on top of the big one for scale?  ;7
