Farcodev and SolCommand this model looks great and good job on the textures. Can't wait to see more ships in FC.
With that smoothing applied looks twice as good ! Nice job man, really nice ! Thx for the screens.
Can't wait to see my babies in-game 🙂
Here's a gun pack designed for "Miner Wars":
I have a rookie question for you Farcodev, I see that the ingame ship's texture looks differnet then the other one. How much control do you have over the texture when you put into a game? Can you enhance a texture when you import it, or does the texture lose some of its detail when it is imported into a game?
Here's a new canon *WIP* inspired by an actual canon being used right now.
I'm working on creating a set of ship hull textures to be used in "Miner Wars" and I'd like to request your assistance on this matter. I'd appreciate it very much if you could link me pics I could use as a guide/refference for -> technical things, pipes, greeble, parts, anything that could be applied as a texture on a space ship.
Here's just one example of possible things:
It's been a wile since I've been active around these parts but I hope to get back in business and start making models again. Next week I'm gonna have an opening in my schedule at work so I'll give it a try and see if I can still make a model so I can come back and continue posting in this thread ... or more specifically, in this awesome community !
Some of you might have noticed that a few days ago I changed the theme on my blog, figured it was about time to make it look a bit better so now .... let's see how this thing plays 🙂
It has been a while indeed. You still doing work on MW at all now?
And like the blog graphics at the top, I know I need to practice more with these graphic programs so I can one day make a good logo for SSC 🙂
I watched that Sintel video a while back and wow, that is some great animation coming from Blender.
Actually I haven't worked on MW for a while now. I stepped down from the art director position a few months ago and I haven't modelled anything since then ... so I guess you can change my "dev rank" to "normal member" so there wont be confusions.
I wanted to place your logo and link in my new image slider (sort of banner) on the blog but I couldn't find any pic of your banner that was the right resolution, so when and if you're gonna create new banners for SSC I'll be borrowing one to place on my blog 🙂
Farcodev, you're still going strong on that game of yours ? I remember it was in a pretty advanced stage when I last looked at it.
OK guys, here it goes, my first model after a long long long time. It's nothing major but it does help me warm up 🙂
The Typhoon S1-12 Launcher:
Poly count - 772
very nice, it looks like your warmed up.
I've been thinking of doing a model after a Phalanx CIWS for a loooong time .... finally today, I actually made one.
Here's another one for you guys !
Here's another render of the CIWS gun cause the other one just sucked.
ok where is the base to put all these sweet weapons?
I haven't thought about it. Any suggestions / pics ? 😉
how about a combo of these?
That last station looks cool, I might actually have a use for it. I find it funny how the guy that rendered the pic didn't realized the station leaves shadow across like a quarter of the planet's surface, now that's a big station 😀
Here's a small outpost model I made last night for fun that could be used for some planetary landing cutscenes ... or something 😀
Those stations are awesome 😯
They would look great in Pioneer *nudge* *nudge* hehe I could have a go at adding them into Pioneer if thats ok with you...?
Be my guest mate 🙂
I didn't had time to work on this one as much as I wanted but ... anyway, here it is, a new planetary base.
You can edit this one extensively: you can easily move / add / remove the landing pads, the building or the trees. You can also edit the background image and add whatever image you like, it can be with a space theme, or a forest, or a futuristic city or whatever you like.
Here's a very quick model for you just before I go to sleep. I just saw something like this in a pic I found with "google images" so I decided I'd make my own. Maybe someone will find a use for it.
Here's a new planetary base.
Name: Smuggler desert camp
Poly count: 1636
cool outpost. soon you'll have enough to make your plant full of buildings.
Excellent thanks a lot, Ill let you know once I have made some progress with this 🙂
I hope you don't mind me raiding your blogspot hehe, theres some real gems on there. In fact pretty much all of the models there are very nice.
