Enjoy!

So I've been making subtle alterations to the Cain mesh to get a Lilith mesh.

The alterations are subtle, but I believe they bring out a more armored look to the Lilith. Here are some comparisons:

Here you can see the "collar" I added, as well as the additional rear spike. The collar adds additional bulk to the space between the "back" and the top arm.



This is an overall shot to show some minor changes in the glow map.



Look at the nose here. I added a horse shoe shaped addition that ends in a spike or saber like formation on either side of the nose.



My goal was to make subtle changes, but I hope they are not too subtle. Any feedback would be awesome. I would like to avoid releasing multiple versions for feedback and review, so if you would like additional angles please request them in this thread and I'll make them.

On the inside of each arm there are exposed ribbing textures... Covering those up with an armor plate might be an interesting addition.

I already said most of this in IRC, but it's good. It LOOKS like a more powerful Cain, which is what the Lilith is. Great work.

Oh on the original model there was a large diamond shape on the underside of the Lilith/Cain. Any chance of that returning?



Oh oh and on the original there were two things underneath the bottom two arms, instead of the single bit jutting out on the original Cain. How about those?

There was a request for more spikes on IRC, this is what I came up with:

Can you change main cannon on Lilith, making it larger and more powerfull looking?
Difference in size between SRed and LRed assemblies should be quite large, considering how powerfull LRed is.

Yeah, I'd agree, if you change that multipart turret to something bigger and more mean-looking to get the point across that it is a friggin' LRed, it'll definitely look better.

Perhaps you could add a subtle triple prongs just before the tip of the LRed.

Nah, I'd go with dual prongs like the Demon turrets. Triple-pronged is just trite.

Also IMO the engine glow is too uniform.

Looks good, although I don't think it would hurt to be less subtle. :)

Oh, I would also maybe add a little stronger looking bracing where the arms attach --- especially the top arm. Of course, I was suggesting this for the Cain too, but... it might work as one of the visible distinctions between the two ship classes.

The horseshoes framing the LRED look nice, but watch that they don't occlude the turret too much. Nothing would frustrate me more (especially in Blue Planet) than to shoot off 3 precious trebbs, only to have them blocked by hull protrusions :(

:nod: IMO the Lilith and Cain should be immediately distinguishable just from looking at them

Give the lilith neon pink glowmaps.

You know you wanna :D

More seriously, it might be cool to have the existing pointy parts longer and curve more than they do in the Cain.

I meant 3 mini-prongs around the main barrel.

I don't think I'm going to be any less subtle with it.

I may extend the spikes on the dorsal side more though.

A new main gun is DEFINATLY getting made. Likely tomorrow, though.

And I've extensivly tested the turrets... the only one slightly harder to hit is the rear anti-fighter beam, but this is true for the Cain as well.
