Hey, what you had so far looks good... Make a UVmapped and a tilemapped version?

(i don't think you see what he did there)

Re: Starting a gunship (needs a name)
Even though I was just about done texturing this thing, I've decided that tilemapping it would just be easier on everyone. It may not look as good, and it'll use about 5 to 7 textures instead of 1, but I think this is in the best interests of FS.

Also, the turrets look like multipart turrets, but due to hierarchy issues I think I'm just going to make them singlepart turrets. I'll leave the models, of course, since remodeling them would be too much work, and I'll just have the firepoint on top of them. I'd retexture them so it would look like there's an emitter there, but like I said, I'm tilemapping it and that would just be impossible.

NO.

Don't throw out all the work you've put into this, especially when it looks THIS good!  If you're having trouble, you should ask for help.  There are plenty of people here who are willing to assist you.  As such, I humbly request permission to assist in completing this model.

(almost)

Still, I found it amusing, even though I missed it at first.

Re: Starting a gunship (needs a name)
hahahaha I forgot about you guys getting all uptight :P

Anyway, I've just about finished the diffuse texture. Next up will be creating LODs and debris, then doing hierarchy in Blender if I can figure out its silly interface. Pics:







(you can also see another fighter I started modeling in here as well).

Re: Starting a gunship (needs a name)
Thank you guys! At the moment it is in PCS2 awaiting POFing, although I do have to reimport after rotating the turrets so they're pointing upwards instead of forwards. After that there's just TBLing and the spec and normal maps to do.

Re: Starting a gunship (needs a name)
It's POF'd.
It's turreted.
It's fvec'd and uvec'd.
It's subsystem'd.
It's... whatever else you do to get a capship ingame.



Diffuse and glowmap are pretty much done. Shinemap and Normalmap are coming, probably after finals (so sometime the week after next).

If anyone wants the POF, tbl and existing maps early to FRED with I will be happy to provide, unless I test it tonight and find out that it crashes FS and eats my PC whenever I collide with it. Or something crazy like that. To avoid clutter I'd only release this preliminary version to someone in a PM- I don't want to release it publicly and then have a bunch of people not download the final version.
