Re: Imperial II-class Star Destroyer Reborn
I think the Imperials figured out that trick already.  :p

But it would still be awesome to see.

Well, actually that was the sensor dish IIRC, but yeah.

You'd need to tear off most of its weaponry then. :nervous:

Is that the normal map? It definitely looks pretty.

Re: Imperial II-class Star Destroyer Reborn
It will become the normal map.  At the moment it's just splines though.  Easier to edit those than it is to work in raster

Re: Imperial II-class Star Destroyer Reborn
Yep, paths are really practical once you get used to the weird way PS handles them. I'm a bit dumbfounded why couldn't they just adopt the Adobe Illustrator ways of dealing with beziers, but meh. It works, just takes a bit of getting used to. Enough rambling, though. Great work, brand, can't wait to see it evolve to a full normal mapped beast.

Those lines on the bottom part remind me of Etch-a-Sketch... :) Good times.

also,

I hereby mandate that anyone creating assets for the FreeSpace community be required to utilize a RAID 5 array for their data storage, until five years have past and they have become a repository of awesome, at which point they will be required to utilize a RAID 6 array for their storage.

All FotG assets are backed up remotely currently.  And I can certainly attest to the fact that RAID is not a substitute for backups, as I've lost 2 drives out of a RAID 5 array at once, losing all data.

Re: Imperial II-class Star Destroyer Reborn
There was a report I read that stated that most RAIDs were nearing the point of being a statistical certainty of having a second drive failure during a rebuild after replacing a failed drive, using the Mean Time Between Failure of the average consumer level drive.

But anyway, I'm wondering if this is going to get mirrored or if each side needs to be etched independently.

Solution:  At 0.5 expected drive life, replace half of the drives, one at a time, with a month in-between each drive replaced (Do an exact copy to new drives).  Then, you can use the old drives that are out of circulation in another RAID 5 array with brand new drives, replacing the new ones one at a time, with one month in-between.  Then wipe the almost new, extra disks, and you will have drive replacements for when old ones fail.

Or: Use RAID 6, which can handle 2 drives dropping at once.

Just back up your important stuff on several USB sticks, it's much cheaper.

Re: Imperial II-class Star Destroyer Reborn
Haven't heard anything from Brand for awhile, but then I haven't had the chance to log in to the chat for just as long so it's entirely possible he's been active there.  Anything new to show us since the last render?

Re: Imperial II-class Star Destroyer Reborn
Unfortunately, Brand's apparently been busy with other things for quite a while now and we haven't heard from him, so a few months ago I started to work on the finishing touches for the ISD, including texturing, modeling fighter bays and such. I've already posted some initial progress on the internal, but I'll drop some screenshots here too as soon as I reach some milestones.

Re: Imperial II-class Star Destroyer Reborn
Glad to hear that it's still moving forward then, and thanks for picking up such a large and important project!  I look forward to seeing it when you have something to share.

Maybe see if you can coordinate with bobbtmann on the hanger bays and such, since he's doing such a fine job on the Mon Cal.

Re: Imperial II-class Star Destroyer Reborn
I've plotted most of the windows on the glowmap (I'll vary their brightness later and maybe add some more overall), modelled and unwrapped the hangars (not pictured yet) and made some progress on the normal mapping.



It's WIP, no feedback needed.
