This is a smaller model I have been working on to go along with my Dauntless model.
It has the roll of support for escorting ships.
there are no tables for it you will have to make your own because I'm not good with ship tables.

You might want to rethink the name: there are already two other GTVA Hyperions on the wiki.
The good Christian should beware of mathematicians, and all those who make empty prophecies. The danger already exists that the mathematicians have made a covenant with the devil to darken the spirit and to confine man in the bonds of Hell.

not too big an issue though, i think there are 3 Phoenix and a Phoenix Rising on the user ship lists, end of the day if someone wants to use it they will redesignate it as fits their scheme anyway

Hyperion is sure a popular name. Must be the HYPER in it.

I never had the GTVA in mind. I was trying for something deference from freespace ships but people can use it how ever that like. I just like the name Hyperion it was that or Argus. I still have the Dauntless to go back and work on as part of the same fleet.

Nice ship. :)
Only a few things I feel I should point out:

  • There's a turret on the bottom that needs its x-form reset. It's catching light in the wrong way.
  • The smoothing is a bit wonky, try lowering the smoothing angle threshold?
  • Too many multiparts (?) Only the first 25 (corresponding to 50 rotating subsystems) will rotate.*

*This limit may have been bumped for Diaspora or something I don't know, but last time I checked turret 26-35 will simply refuse to rotate silently without warnings.

Cool ship though, and awesome work!

Note that x-form is pretty much a 3d max term only afaik.

But yeah, nice ship  :yes:

Kinda looks like a White Star.

I've only been playing around with it in the Diaspora game its my new favorite mod and all the turrets work there.
I haven't played with it in the freespace game play I will have to check it out and see.
I don't think blender has and x-form for me to reset. The smoothing looks the way I wanted it to, I didn't want it to look boxy.

Thanks, Joe!  You have made me a very happy man.  Also, I'm not sure since I haven't used 3DS max in a while, but I believe blender's analogous function for 'reset x-form' is 'apply transformation.'  Select transformed object and hit ctrl+a.  Notice that if there's a scaling operation into the negatives, all normals in the object get flipped, and the application won't occur if the object uses shared mesh data (ie pressing alt+d instead of shift+d when you duplicate it).  If the turret does not have its axes aligned with global x, y, z, record the angles of rotation for the turret BEFORE hitting ctrl+a, that way you'll be able to compute the turret's forward and up vectors and tell PCS2 how to use the turret properly.

And yeah, it does look like someone took a firefly/whitestar and cross-bred it with a battlestar.  Total bamfery in my opinion.

You know, it actually looks a little bit like a next gen UEF ship to me. Like a Raynor crossed with a Sanctus. Could totally do it with the model modified slightly and a different skinjob. UEF Corvette or something.

Anyway, I'm curious as to how you made the textures in GIMP, particularly the scratchy layer. You got a tutorial laying around to link?

 
Looks great! Very sleek, and modern-looking. Has a good shape for an escort-oriented cruiser (which most cruisers should be, really).

Two concerns:
1) Aesthetically (I guess in terms of shape), it is a rather big departure from FS1/2 Terran design, not to mention Vasudan. Not really a problem if it's in a post-Capella era, just something to keep in mind. It still looks awesome, regardless.
2) The name. While, yes, it's already a popular name for other models/ships, it's also fairly well-used elsewhere in recent times, and it kind of takes away from the originality of the model.
    -) Off the top of my head, you've got the two GTVA Hyperion models already on here, Hyperion from Borderlands/Borderlands 2, the Hyperion from Starcraft/Starcraft 2, and...I vaguely recall it being a name for other sci-fi continuity ships/ship-classes. So it's not cliche, but rather a possibly squandered chance to make this model/ship stand out.

Overall, great work! Would love to see it in action.

Nowhere is it said it's supposed to be a Terran warship, nor even that it's supposed to be set in the FS universe.
