Re: What are you working on?

... and i thought it was an easy sunday afternoon project retrofitting my Radiant-VII model for Clone Wars, but it turned out a nightmare. the model they used in the animated series has "not so much" common with the model they used in Episode I... and even they used at least two versions of this  model for the series (the other one has escape pods instead of the docking rings)... i do not think, that my two models (Radiant-VII and C-70) share a single vertex anymore... :D i had to rewatch the series and rely on screencaps; i hope i got all the main features of this ship. and of course it needs to be textured :D

any help is welcome (especially in texturing :) )



enjoy!

Clone Wars era mod for Freespace :O !?

YES YES YES.

 
Re: What are you working on?
Since Majorvador released his Sins of a Blue Planet TC for Sins of a Solar Empire in an alpha state, I've been playing with the game files, adding abilities, but also borrowing effects from the Distant Stars mod and enhancing the weapon effects, which as stock are all but invisible at any kind of range.

I've been trying to reach him to see if he'd like them, and some help to move it along, but haven't gotten any reply after a couple weeks as of this writing. So until I do hear back, it'll sit safe on my hard drive and my dropbox for me to enjoy. :P

Sorry i never got back to you stardust, been busy with things, thanks for the screen shots but personally im not a big fan of them, don't take this the wrong way but personally i'm trying to create an authentic freespace mod for sins.

I'm personally not a fan of effects that are in my opinion over the top which unfortunately show up in quite a lot of sins mods, with this in mind i will be giving particle effects another pass over soon.

Re: What are you working on?
Not a problem, I appreciate the feedback. It's not a critique, more an observation of mine; in FSO the sky's full of glowing, shiny, and colorful effects, which seemed to be lacking in SOTBP. If I wasn't focused right in close on a given ship, I couldn't tell whether it was firing - or being fired upon - unless they were using beams. You're welcome to have them, either way, maybe it will save you some work down the road? It is, after all, your project, so I completely understand where you're coming from and that you want to create a certain aesthetic and gameplay style with it. Let me know.

Re: What are you working on?
When I get the time, I'll do some 3D modeling and now a days I look over what I already have done and see if I can improve things. This used to be a Vasuden Bomber when I started it. But stopped as I felt it was not anyhting they would do. So what to make it as?

I figured in the Freespace universe, you would see Pirates, Mercenaries and all that, so decided this would be a Mercenary combat ship. Cockpit is there with two pilots, while not shown has room for a small cargo compartment and a crew area or a small troop compartment. Three AAA turrets and 4 heavy cannons round out the ship.

Got Shivans? The SOC Ezechiel is the schnitzel! Don't leave base without it.

 
Re: What are you working on?
Now that's a really neat thing :)

I actually don't know if GTVA would like to have mercs using ships with 3 AAA turrets and 4 heavy cannons, but what about some kind of Vasudan special police force?

And BTW, what has become of your other Vasudan things? I mean not only the 2 recent ones, but you made some interesting stuff a few years back.

 
Re: What are you working on?
Yeah not sure about that too, but what the hey ;)

I still have them all and even improved that oval looking Vasuden Bomber I made into a GVT transport type.

https://p3d.in/s7eLU

A nice tactical transport, fast and even comes with shields, but not as strong as fighters. Also with cockpit

Here is the GVF Mafdat I made and improved it some:

https://p3d.in/wJXuH

This is a very light very fast interceptor. Light armor, but very strong shields. Only 4 cannons and 4 missile tubes too. I'm not 100% on the engines though. Cockpit included.

Re: What are you working on?
Do you plan to finish them someday? ;7

As with the 2 other ships- you surely might find somebody in this community who could convert them. :)
Cause they're pretty and HQ models. :nod:

 
Re: What are you working on?
I wish I had the time to learn UV mapping as I never had even though I attempted several times already. I just do not have the time learning UV Mapping. Heck I have not done any of my aviation profiles lately either. I hope to someday, but not for quite sometime. I have tried to learn some UV mapping, but it's just not working out well for me. UV mapping is currently not as sophisticated to be fast, simple and accurate to make a proper template for me to use.

Having said that, if ANYONE WHO READS THIS WISHES TO COMPLETE THESE, LET ME KNOW. If not, then someday when I can do proper UV mapping, I'll complete them.

Re: What are you working on?
Deleted, something is not working. BBS :)

Ehh ok this post went weird while at work on lunch break....

Updated the GVF Mafdat with new engines and some minor detailing.

Re: What are you working on?
I think that the wings and fuselage should have a plated appearance, similar to the Serapis.

Re: What are you working on?
I have several current projects for several mods. BtA, Inferno... Among them, there is this:


It's in pretty good shape, so it's about time to show this. Some of you may remember this. Original is Venom's work, and I'm reworking it into Asgard - terran superdestroyer and flagship of one of terran factions from Starwolf's secret project.

Re: What are you working on?
Yes you are quite right Trivial Psychic and that brings it to my problem. You see, there are two ways I can show this. One is the plated appearance and the other is like how the GVF Shu is. I am leaning toward the plated version, but also might try it like the GVF Shu does.

Re: What are you working on?
Clone Wars era mod for Freespace :O !?

YES YES YES.

it COULD be, but we are only three people involved into this at the moment: 2 devs and one supporter (that would be You! :D )

so if someone else thinks we need a Clone Wars mod, then feel free to get in touch; any help is needed.

but for now, i only have 3 (similar) objects i created; if i have some time in the future i will create some more, but progress will be very slow...

i made a quick repaint (the red one) of the C-70 as seen in TCW S06/E07

if someone wants to improve them further or would like to use them in their own mods, feel free to contact me; i would be happy to donate them for good :)




 
Re: What are you working on?
Ok, so some more work and I get it this far:



Better?  :)

Re: What are you working on?
I also made this version which I started earlier and a little bit different. Figured the Vasudens also were part of the SOC branch and made this as an enhanced version of armor plating.
