RELEASE: Tethys [MODELS]




Okay, I think these have been tested enough to be stable enough for release.
I will make a few notes however, so PLEASE READ:

  • This release is intended for mod developers interested in using these models. A patch to replace the old models in Dimensional Eclipse is in the works which will also have a bunch of other changes so it will take a while to finalize and test. I'm in no rush to release this patch - I might as well wait until I have a nightly build I can point to.
  • This release is not a drop-in-replacement. Dropping the models and textures into the DE folder will not do anything, so it's fairly foolproof in that regard unless you try to get smart and edit the tbls.
  • Table files are not included. The existing tables will not be bug-free without some editing. This is for the reason above, so I don't get any 'mission X is broken' reports. I'm going to assume that anyone interested in using this will be able to produce their own tables.

Included in this package are:
  • Block One (Carrier) Tethys - Red Stripe
  • Block Two (Artillery) Tethys - Blue Stripe
  • Block Three (Artillery) Tethys - Silver Stripe (black ops) *
  • Stratavarian Module (AWACS) - Blue Stripe

* texture-replacement based, use Block Two model.

Nameplates are not included.

The shine map has some purple artifacts in the darkest areas. Otherwise they're awesome. Though I hoped you'd also release the Rhea with them.

Badass shippes

e: mildly spergy point that those look way more dramatic variants than blocks but it really is totally irrelevant

Rhea is coming soonTM.

The differences between them got amplified when I rebuilt them, kind of spiralled out of control :nervous:

Re: RELEASE: Tethys [MODELS]
I really love these models you've done. I made tables for each of these ships, each using UEF weapons. But my question is, since the carrier and arty ships are based off another ship, would you be able to edit the Solaris and Karuna classes so they look like these models plz? It would be good to see a decent fleet using your models and textures.

You have no idea how much work Droid and Andrew would need to put in :P (esp. for that ugly hulk of metal that is the Solaris)

yo who you callin ugly

But I agree, that would not be some kind of simple 'edit' like reskinning a tilemapped model. It'd be an enormous amount of work.

Well, I don't think I'd remodel either, but if you could convince AndrewofDoom to make textures, it could happen. (Not all too likely though, depends how persuasive you are)
Not really much I can do in terms of retexturing to make them consistent.

Re: RELEASE: Tethys [MODELS]
On topic, these ships look dang spiffy, and I think they actually fit with the UEF fleet ethos quite well, albeit with subtle distinctions that could represent different manufacturer's design choices.

They don't have to fit with the UEF fleet ethos, this isn't Blue Planet! What's important is that they look hella sweet.

Re: RELEASE: Tethys [MODELS]
You know, the SpecOps Tethys picture and its angle makes the Tethys look like an entirely different ship than the blue one!

Solaris is ugly? :(
I am slightly editing Shizuku's quote and hence, I'm not serious :P I used the word 'ugly' because it was captained by Admiral Max.

Re: RELEASE: Tethys [MODELS]
Hopefully this gets noticed, but the Stratavarian Module, when adding it's Rotators to the tbm file, it causes the game to crash. Wondering if it's just me, or whether it's the model? I got them working for the other frigates, but this one keeps crashing.
