Use of Ship Models in Other Projects
Hi.

I am very impressed by the modeling work so far. I can't wait for a demo.

Currently, I am looking at creating a Star Wars plugin for Escape Velocity Nova (http://www.ambrosiasw.com/games/evn) and for a clone called Naev (http://blog.naev.org/).

I need 3d ship models do generate sprite sheets (and eventually the 3D models themselves for Naev) and, since the models associated with this project seem to be some of the best available, I was wondering if any of you would be interested in contributing your models to this project. I need permissive licenses (creative commons, preferably something like share alike, etc).,

The preferred format is .blend, buy i'll take .obj. 3DS tends to have issues, so I would like to avoid these.


Any contributions are welcome.

Thanks.

Re: Use of Ship Models in Other Projects
Our models are themselves set up with in game use in mind, but it seems like any of the renderable models on the 3d model dump sites would serve your needs well.  On top of that, most of our stuff is done in Max at this point.

Considering how great Brand's renders look, I understand that he is interested in them.
Models of that quality are often offered for a price.
FoTG models are among the best ones I seen.

Re: Use of Ship Models in Other Projects
Thank you for the praise, however at this time I am not interested in sharing any of my models for other mod or game projects.  Other artists may, of course, do as they like with their own works.

Re: Use of Ship Models in Other Projects
I have looked into Scifi3d's models, but lots of them have issues when imported into blender (particularly the .3DS files).

Yes, the major reason I decided to ask for contributions here was definitely the quality factor. You guys do great work.

Otoh, I certainly respect the modeler's decision to volunteer/not volunteer their models.


On a similar note, I would appreciate if anyone can point me to other free sites where I can obtain this type of material or to other projects that are building them.


Thanks.

Also, I need more content than just ships (like gun/equipment models, if anyone is working on that type of thing).

Hi Cypher!

If you interested in my Action 6 you can download it here:
http://3dart.ovh.org/probnik/Action6.rar

License is really easy:
Code: [Select]
- your app is non-profit app
- you add a note to your app that this model was created by Jacek Cichy
- and it will be really nice to inform me that you are using it ;).

@jacek: thanks!

The model looks good, but I am not getting any textures. Does the .mtl file refer to any textures? Could you send these (is the action6 textured at this point in time).

Sorry to bump my dead post, but are there any other takers? I'm currently in the planning stage (have to code an editor to work with Naev's files).

Wouldn't our models be unecessarily detailed?

Well, not if he's just rendering them to sprites, which sounds like what he's doing.

Re: Use of Ship Models in Other Projects
Well, for now I'd render it into sprites, but the head dev of Naev wants to eventually move to using 3d models (better memory usage).

Overly detailed is much better than inadequately detailed :).

Also, the level of detail is precisely the reason I came here first (the ships look very professional).
