Nevertheless, I still think it's good to offer some back-compatibility to users who cannot use p3d, even though we are in the minority.
I agree, I use to not be able to use p3d in my old notebook and it was frustrating. That's why I posted pictures and I'll keep posting them for every update. :)

If we ever get p3d embedding working, then it displays a screenshot as well, if p3d won't actually run. Quite useful.

But we've somewhat gotten off topic. The Sekhmet is looking great. I don't have any useful feedback for what you asked for though...

Took a look at the model in p3d.
In general, I actually like what you did there. My only gripe would be that, they look like a serrated blade when viewed from the side. Think that rounding up that a bit, like what you have on the inner side, would make it look better.

And on second inspection, I think that the missile bays could use some rounding on the top and bottom.

(images below to illustrate what I mean)

Yeah, I know you were waiting for a very nice sig, in which I was quoting some very famous scientist or philosopher... guess what?!? I wont indulge you...

Why, you ask? What, do I look like a Shivan to you?!?

I would actually round the spikes the other way to look more like the Nephlim HTL we have.

Seen here.

Or if it loads...



It's spikes look more like a saw blade.

I love the sawtooth look on the engine pods, but I think you should make the teeth face the other way, with the slanted side facing the front. That way it can cut through space better. With the way it is now, the ship's just going to get snagged.

Thanks guys! I got an idea reading those replies. But it's Diaspora time now, so modeling will have to wait... :nod:

Well, actually that was the first thing I tried. It made that area not too interesting. With the teeth facing forward, I feel it stands out better.

Not sure if making jabbing reference to FS space physics...

...or simply with regards to atmospheric ship design.

What about this?

I see it as a mix of the HTL Nephilim's spikes and the Serapis' engine pod.

Personaly, I don't think it fits. Too vasudan and not enough shivan :\

EDIT: you are clearly feeling stuck with that zone, why don't you move to the other areas, and then revisit this zone with a fresh mind? :)

I also felt the paneling looked a bit out of place. The geometry just contrasts a good deal with the more angular geometry of the weapons pods.

Granted, I like the paneling, but I am not sure it fits. I do feel bad about not being able to give a more constructive critique at this time (such as a drawing), but sometimes the muse is not willing.

I actually like the panels a lot; Shivan influences aside, it is a Vasudan bomber design after all.

My friggin goodness!! I'm mesmerized! I especially love the way you are dealing with the cockpits, it gives it a sort of shivanish, yet still vasudan vibe! :)

I also like the ribbing you applied to the top spike. I wonder how something like that would look like on the engine pods (the area you were strugling with)!

I never got the impression from the retail/enhanced retail .pof that the canopies were recessed. In fact, I'd say they're not. I'd strongly suggest reconsidering the design of the cockpits on those grounds.

...I do love those engines, however. :yes:

how do you get an impression either way on how the cockpits should be? recessed glass looks good and makes sense for all kings of reasons.

Uhhh...

Probably because the canopies are not recessed like that on the retail model/texture?
