New custom ship!

I have made a new ship for you people who are waiting for WC Saga to come out. It's Eder's model of the SWC Rapier with more detail, baked Origin textures, new specular maps, and gun attachments from Privateer Gemini gold!

Here is the download.

And also, a new custom mission is coming soon!

I'll be loocking forward to it... Do you have any screens to show?

By the way, Whare should we put this ship to use it in the game?

I put a screenshot of this ship in another thread. See this post.

And just use it in any custom missions you are making. Speaking of custom missions, I am about to release one very soon where you can fly this ship.

I loved the ship... Great fire power, and almost a tank

I'll trade mi Arrow V in the prologe for this baby... Maybe I'd even save the wellington hehe

I doubt it. :D

Regarding the Rapier: it is an interesting experience to fly it - the gun placement is unusual and requires some training to aim properly :)

Wouldn't hurt to try :D:D:D

Now, seriously... I noticed the guns thing too... It made killing the turrets a little harder

a possible solution would be to modify normals, like this

I now highly recommend you re-download the ship. It is now a totally different experience than what it was last time. Here is a list of changes I made:

1. Eye point added, so you can look around.
2. Gun convergence is working now!
3. Glow points added!
4. Glow map added!
5. NPC Variant uses AI missile variants
6. Faster turn rate
7. Visible secondary weapons!
8. Stronger shields/armor!
9. The name is now F-44B Rapier II.
10. Textures now have DXT5 compression.

NOTE: You'll also have to re-download the Convoy Intercept mission as well. Otherwise, you won't be flying a Rapier.

Doesn't this look kick-ass?

Anyways, the standalone VP and the Convoy Intercept mission were both updated.

Are the missiles "to scale"?

They look very large to me... I think the mission and the ship are great...

I'll be looking forward to seeing more missions like that...

I wonder what happened to mustanger... I liked his work too

As soon as I get a comm-sat model done and imported into FS2, I might release another WC Arena themed mission. (Speaking of Arena, it inspired me to make this ship.)

He's on the WC Saga team.

Oh well, I hope he's put to good use there...

I'll be waiting to hear about this new mission... Not bad at all so far :D
