Personally, I'm perfectly happy just to wait for Galemp to clean up that one that that random dude on DA made.

 
I like it better than any of the ones I have seen. But than again that's just my opinion. By all means, keep going :)  :yes:

Not sure if I like it as much as that other guy's one.

Though this is the "concept" Colossus one right? The one based on the concept art? If so, :yes:

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.

Wait, TrashMan's is the concept based Colossus, not meant to act as a HTL replacement. I still want to see it finished.

Yup, this isn't the HTL Colossuss.

It's a Colossuss as it is depicted in the concept art (sorta...only 1 image, so I had to due some guesstimates)

Pardon my constructive criticism, guys, but isn't that Colossus a bit innatural to be considered a worth high-poly version of the current model?

I mean, the Colossus' construction started only 10 years after the end of the Great War, so the Terrans were only slightly ahead of FS1 in terms of ship engineering.

In FS2 the Colossus really looks like an FS1-style warship, unlike more recent designs like the Hecate or Aeolus. I'm afraid that this HTL model, although impressive, is not the right one. Please note that this is a compliment in terms of modelling art, and a critic in terms of pragmatic usage.  ;)

It was a joint T-V effort. This one addresses the problem.

In terms of having rounded sections? It is part Vasudan also.

Vasudan engineering wasn't that advanced shortly after FS1, either... :rolleyes:

Actually, those rounded sections look Terran. That's the problem...

...the Colossus has little to poor Vasudan markings, anyway. It definitely looks like a Terran ship in FS2. Not that a more Vasudan appeal would be a bad thing... ;)

I'd love to see an NTF Colossus... and a campaign featuring it!

Or NTV will fullfill my dreams?  :drevil:
