A prototype Colossus built before the definitive version? "Incredibly expensive waste of money" may not be enough to describe that action... :lol:

Ehh..my sister dropped off the kids today, so I got stuck with babysitting duty. Nedless to say, this cut into my modeling time. I still managed to get something done. Update:




I'm experimenting with the "head", not sure if I'll keep the current look.

The model is absolutely insanely cool, on par with the one that DA dude made, but the over-tiling of those maps is just painful.

Also it doesn't look quite like the real colossus any more, and i reckon it won't be compatible as far as turrets... or is this a makeover, rather than a facelift?

It's an alternative design, based more closely on the concept art of the Colossus.



BTW - There are huge sections of undetailed, flat-ish sections on the model... If the tiling was lessened, or if extra stuff was added there it'd make the model so much kewler.

Agreed here. The tiling is pretty horrible and the only detailed part would be the engine block. More details and less tiling would be great.

Hmmm.... can I request a side by side of your concept and the original Colossus?

This one?




The cleaning up has, in fact, just been finished. There's some more modifications to be done to accommodate the turrets, and there's some major detail-box greeblage still to be done... and after that, UV unwrapping and texturing...

But I think we can all agree that this much detail is worth the effort. Sorry Trashman. Maybe try working on another ship? Your style is well suited to FS1 Shivan fighters, like the Scorpion, Nephilim or Manticore.

WAUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUU
WAU Superb, nice, cool,   can't wait for it... :)  :jaw: :yes:

At least with this high poly Colossus (either of them, I'm sure) it won't have a stupid plain triangular fighter bay.

Well IMO

- Galemp's looks a lot cooler
- T-Man's looks a bit like the Colossus 'should', as Mobius pointed out.

The word 'Yo' is only ever to be used as a singular greeting.
It is considered an insult to destroy a perfectly acceptable greeting by misuse. A 'Yo-Yo' is a toy spun from the index finger by small children and enthusiasts,
any such use as a greeting will result in prompt reprimand by any member of the 'African-American' or 'Sri-Lankans-who-think-they're-black' community

I keep saying the Colossus was a T-V project. It shouldn't look 200% Terran.

Why not? The chassis and hull was the Terrans part of the Collosus, the reactors and internal workings were the work of the Vasudans. So externally the Collosus would look 100% Terran.

Where did it say that? :confused:

If so then my personal convictions for my entire life have been based on false assumptions and I will go kill myself. :(

We know Vasudans are better at reactors, as the mekhu (IIRC) has a better rate of fire on a Vasudan ship than on a Terran ship, the rest is just speculation. It's reasonable to assume that Terran hulls are stronger than Vasudan. And Vasudan weapons are stronger than Terran. Balance wise I mean.

Re: You want? (Concept Colossus)
If Terran hulls are stronger, how come the Typhon and Hatshepsut BOTH have more HP than the Orion and Hecate?


There's no doubt Terran weapons are stronger of course (*cough*Vasudan Light Laser*cough*) ;)
