Thanks :). This one



I had to put in on hold since I ran into troubles with the 3dsmax POF-exporter. But with Collada support in PCS2, that is no longer an obstacle. So wanted to test the tool chain (DAE exporting, ambient occlusion texture baking and some other texturing tricks I learned along the way) with something simpler (which shouldn't  have taken so long... haha), so I started with the container and freighters, but that's now almost 2 years ago ;) Time to finish them up and get back to more important things.

Re: HTL model, need testers
NICE!

 :yes:


...By the way, did IPAndrews ever respond to your freighter development in a friendly fashion? I don't think Kara perma-banned him...

Looking good.  Keep in mind name and number plate options when you get to the mapping stage. 
No-one ever listens to Zathras. Quite mad, they say. It is good that Zathras does not mind. He's even grown to like it. Oh yes. -Zathras

That's for Zatharas, so it's not IPA's buisness.

I'm aware of that. However, he did almost seem to attempt some sort of helpful criticism, though he mostly seemed to be trolling.

 :doubt:

How precisely was his work "stolen," anyway?

in one word? It was not  :) 

 PLEASE keep this thread free of this topic, search for the topics regarding that subject. Posts about it will be removed, I've had it with discussing this old crap in every single topic there is  :lol:   Please don't be offended, I am just stating a fact.

Regarding the model:

Re: HTL model, need testers
Back on topic.

Docking points, the main dock remains where it is for backwards compatibility reasons, even though it may look weird if a shuttle docks to some girder structure. But since docking points are independent from the tables, I've added two more:



One on the under side of the saucer (for shuttles and breaching pods), and one on top of the forward tank.



The one on the tank is to dock the freighter to larger vessels, or another freighter to make a neat sandwich:


POF-wise, freighter type 1 is done... only the normal maps need more work, and then with some cut/pasting freighter type 2 will be done very quickly.

...I thought a very large smile would suffice.

...Well, if I could make it 50pt.  :P

Good Stuff!

Looks good, are you planing to make a tanker version too?

Re: HTL model, need testers
Looking good.  If you don't mind when you consider it close to final shoot it over to me in either max or obj format and I'll see about souping it up a little more then just extra docking points.  I've gotten rather good at adding features to ships while still preserving compatibility.  Could probably get 3 or 4 more uses out of it easily with still a single table entry.

Can you elaborate on that a bit? Before I let anyone fiddle around under the hood,  I'd like to know what he's up to ;)
