Re: GVB Ammit - 2013 MODELING CONTEST ENTRY - NEWCOMER DIVISION
Thanks, Husker. And thank you, The Dagger, for the texture-baking guide.

But I'm having a problem. I think I'm following the right steps to bake my pilot and ship textures together, but whenever I actually try to bake them, I get a messy texture like this:



Any idea what I might be doing wrong here? Thanks!
"We have now reached the point where every goon with a grievance, every bitter bigot, merely has to place the prefix, 'I know this is not politically correct, but...' in front of the usual string of insults in order to be not just safe from criticism, but actually a card, a lad, even a hero. Conversely, to talk about poverty and inequality, to draw attention to the reality that discrimination and injustice are still facts of life, is to commit the sin of political correctness. Anti-PC has become the latest cover for creeps. It is a godsend for every curmudgeon and crank, from fascists to the merely smug."

I've never had that problem myself, but if you upload your blend file I'll see what I can do.

Thank you very much. Here's my blend file, just before trying to texture-bake.

The resulting texture is the mess in my previous post.

Re: GVB Ammit - 2013 MODELING CONTEST ENTRY - NEWCOMER DIVISION
You have several problems:
1- You didn't create a new UV map (see step 2). You'll have to restart because the vasudan model has no reference to it's original UVmap.
2- Your materials have to have a reference to the UVmap. Also, mapping should be set to "UVmap", your is "Generated". That's probably whats giving you such strange results.
Finally, I don't have your maps, so I can't do it for you.

Thanks again, but I think I'll finish the texture-baking later, as the current model's not slow enough to desperately need the optimization.

With that said, here's my contest entry, version 1.21:

https://docs.google.com/file/d/0B0-LZC1urvqDV1BSbWd3UldmaVE/edit?usp=sharing



The Ammit includes two table files: Ammit-shp is a bomber, and AmmitFighter-shp is an interceptor. Copy the entry of whichever one you're using to your ships-tbm, and delete/ignore the other one.

The Ammit comes with the GVM Khepri anti-capital dumbfire rocket.



ED: Added radar icon entries to tables.

Looks good. I especially like the volume of Khepri missiles in that picture. Are they fired in quick succession or will it rely on shear volume of bombers?
<Axem> yet still more insightful than #hard-light

<Axem> jad2.23 will just be cat videos

<DahBlount> So
<DahBlount> JAD2.2 is like that
<Axem> maybe
<Axem> it can be whatever you like!
<DahBlount> A Chocolate Sundae?
<Axem> sure

Thanks. Khepris are two-shot missiles, so a standard twin-linked volley is 4 missiles.

BTW, fightermedic, if you're listening, when/if you're done with your contest showcase mission, could you please put up a link? I'd like to see it.

:bump:

I've Wiki'd this ship but the download link is broken, and I was therefore unable to include any table data. Patch it up, team!

Nobody mentioned it when I was looking for a next-generation Vasudan interceptor and since it wasn't on the Wiki, it fell through the cracks.
