I actually like the look of the texture.

Just a quick thing I forgot to mention. Be sure to set the glass to use a separate texture and be sure it uses the -trans flag. For example: black_glass-trans.dds

I liked the vents. But the missile pods work too.

Those missiles bays are actually half the size of the Tauret's. So they're actually pretty small I think.
IIRC the EMP missile is about half as wide as the Seth is tall, so using that whole space for missile tubes was probably the best bet.  :yes2:

I'd say you pulled it off quite well. The missile tubes look very good in that location. Can't wait to see it finished.

For what it's worth, I like the missiles a thousand times better than the old intakes. Pity about having to redo everything else though.

I've been gone, but I'm back. I think the only thing left to texture is those greeble parts but I'm not too inspired right now to do it. After that, LODs...

Add some dirt to it and we're ready to go!

Dirt, scorches (?), greebles. THEN we're good to go. With a very nice new asset indeed.

(Bright yellow missles in the tubes look a bit tacky, could be ****ty image quality. Looks like a 40% quality jpeg)

Greyish panels in the back of the ship. They're flat right now, could use some normal mapped pipes and stuff.

OK, well to be clear, that's not generally considered "greebles" that's just a texturing trick.

About the greebles, I'm not actually sure if I'm going to texture it to look like greeble or to model it. I'm modeling it, but I don't think it looks too great... I'll have to texture it to see if it fits.

And there is a little noise and smudge thing going on in the texture, but maybe the image is to low-res to show it clearly. I won't do much more scorches and dirt because I think it doesn't fit the general MediaVPS style, most ships are not that damaged and teared down.

I wouldn't worry too much about making it look a bit dirty. At the moment, I think your major problem is that you don't have enough texture contrast. Might just be that image, but to me it barely looks textured in a lot of parts - more like bare geometry in varied colours. A bit of noise, some more emphasis on the scaly patterns - these could go a long way to changing it for the better, IMO.

Oh, that's a texture. I honestly thought that's it's just a painted model (they're occasionaly shown like that around here). It definitely needs more dirt and "noise".

Well, I've added some more dirt on that texture. Here's the model with AO bake and basic colors without any dirt.

And here's the model with several dirt layers:

Hope you like it...

IMHO to dirty right now.  I would consider less dirt and more grain/noise/whatever approach.
Of course de gustibus non est disputandum.
