Re: [Release]Vengeance-pattern GTCv Diomedes
Here's a quick and dirty idea (please bear in mind that I am not in any shape or form a texture artist)


(In case it ain't clear, my idea is to use that area to hint at a sort of bussard intake)

In addition, how about a blue stripe across the white area on those "wings", just to break up the area a bit?

You could try adding red warning labels beside the turrets, and engine exhausts.

And, hey..

It's looks *****ing cool.

Damn girl, you look fine

No Bussard intakes, it'd look too much like the back end of a Karuna! (also I would have to come up with technobabble to make it make sense)

Re: [Release]Vengeance-pattern GTCv Diomedes
You are as usual correct, Batman.

But I'd like to have _something_ more interesting there than just grey slabs of stuff.

Conformal targeting sensors for the main beams? Lidar and ****?

  So would I, believe me. 

I like the sensors idea.  Will see what I can do.  Also added a blue stripe to the white parts as suggested.

Re: [Release]Vengeance-pattern GTCv Diomedes
Hmmm...

After looking through the old ships, would you consider uprgading the Sparta itself at some point? It is a rather interesting vessel, after all.

Re: [Release]Vengeance-pattern GTCv Diomedes
I'm not going to categorically say no, but it's unlikely.  Something about that design really rubs me the wrong way.  I thought it was the asymmetry, but I like the Orion, so I don't know.  I just don't like it.

Re: [Release]Vengeance-pattern GTCv Diomedes
It is only the most minor nitpick, but could you move the nameplace above that AAA turret? I can't really explain why, but I think it would look better on the uppger half of the ship.

Re: [Release]Vengeance-pattern GTCv Diomedes
Beautiful work, However, I would suggest to move the "nameplate" texture a bit higher (maybe in the depression directly above its current position.

Re: [Release]Vengeance-pattern GTCv Diomedes
Norbert: like this? 

 

I prefer it below the gap myself, since it adds a bit more... weight? to the bottom.  Makes it feel a bit more balanced.  Anyone else have an opinion on this?

Cybertrance: The gap is both too busy and too small to fit the nameplate.  It's either above or below the AAA.

 
Re: [Release]Vengeance-pattern GTCv Diomedes
Also: since this thread in no longer exclusively about the Diomedes, shouldn't it be renamed or split or whatever?

No need for a new thread.  Renamed.  Could also fit in discussion about the fluff side of the TEI ships.

i agree with aesaar on the nameplate positioning and reasons, but it's a pretty trivial preference.

The Chimera and Bellerophon aren't supposed to be 'balanced', they're supposed to be front-heavy, powerful striking implements to hammer Shivan capital ships into nothingness in as few seconds as possible.

Re: Warships of the TEI (RLS: Diomedes - IP: Chimera)
It looks really good already.

A couple points to consider: The front end, with all those black supports, looks a bit weird/almost like lego. Is there a way to add detail in the texture to make it look better?

There are some very large stretches of flat space with nothing to break up the surface. The back of the four wings (?) are the worst offenders. Again, maybe something in the texture could alleviate this?

These are some minor gripes about a very good looking model. Kudos to your good work!
