New Models Dump Thread!

Aight, I mentioned i'd do it, but now I really will. Here's the new model dump thread, as I and Cyb get stuff done, it'll show up here. To kick things off, i'll post up my Drayman I recently began, only thing left is to finish her textures.

Oh, here be the list of all the ships as well by game...over the course of time all the ships will be remodeled up to the new graphical standard. Lots to do, if you want to help model/texture, lemme know. I can get you reference images and all that. I will say this though, if you decide you want to help out you will be required to stick strictly to the originals when you do your modeling and texturing. There will be no liberties taken, or the model will be requested to be fixed, and then re-submitted. Once a model has been cleared, then it will go into the game. We're shooting for the utmost in qaulity, we'd love the help, just keep those guidelines in mind and all will be well :)

Are you proposing we start from scratch on all these models, Brad? Cause, like Spirit mentioned, your Centurion, Galaxy, and Taursus models all look fantastic as is. Maybe we can mark those of the list or table them?
 

BradMick

Vice Admiral
no no, the models that are marked on my list are done. the other models, they ALL need to be redone. the Cent, Galaxy, and Tarsus need new textures though. Also, the V2 versions, i'm adding landing gear and all that jazz to them. though, i agree, they're earmarked for later.

Master of Orion
i would suggest to use "*" in order to mark the ships that need only retexturing.

so for example:

*Tarsus


ohh and do nto forget to mark those ships wicha re in work already and post the names of the modellers.


*Destroyer (wc3) (sheffield) - Cyberion
*Kilrathi Assault Shuttle - Cyberion
Dorkathi - Cyberion


[EDIT]: maybe me can make it sticky? and remove 3D models to do list thread.

[EDIT]2: also Brad didn't say it, but one of the main goals is not only to model good looking ships for WCU, but make them available to everyone, so they could be used in the fan projects. First of all such as WCU and Privateer Remake. The work is hard and there are alot of it, but after all it will turn out well ;)

I can't wait to see the results of your dreamteamwork, you know i've only created this centurion texture because the current remake one caused an eyecancer... ;) It may look similiar to the original texture but it isn't 100% accurately - i didn't had original artwork Brad! :D
 

BradMick

Vice Admiral
ah, well....thats a really damn good job there john! i seriously thought it was the original. great work!

anotha' one. This is the Privateer Strakha (never made it in game). Modeling is done, not to texture her. She weighs in at 6,784 Tri's. The Drayman is at 5,896 tri's.

enjoy!

I have a question on the models...do the weapons need to be modelled? I thought that the Vega Strike engine handled things similarly to Freelancer...the guns are separate models that are "attached' to the ship?

You can choose on a per-mount basis whether to use an attached weapon model or not. For something like the Strakha, you would choose not to use them, and just go with what's built into the model.

well time to showoff what i can do when i have motivation ;) Trying to prove myself and others my texturing and modeling skillzzzz ;)


here is my quote from another post, so i won't hve to write something similar for this thread:

Do not want to sound too selfish, but if you follow this link -> http://wcu.solsector.net/cyberion/renders
you will see the results of the work i've been doing and will scream from the possible orgasm (i hope ;)).

Those models are the first in this huge model list I and Brad (possibly someone else will join) have to model for WCU. Those models are examples of the results we expect from every modeler and every model. The goal is to create awesome looking models + textures for WCU and all community in general, so other people could use it in their mods, thus stimulating the possible fan-project boom.

rapier03-1.jpg





So Brad, add to the list for:

WC3/4 shuttle - completed. Cyberion
Rapier MK2 - modelling done, 60% texturing done. Cyberion


and i think i need finish that Dorkathi finally hehehe

the shuttle looks great cyb! the rapier however could do with some work.

> the main things are, the main wings angle downwards at about.....oh, just guessing 15 or so degrees.

> the hull doesn't have a hump in the rear, its an even grade from front to back.

> she needs her guns modeled. the early ships came with fixed weapons, so they should be modeled.

> the side winglet dealys are a little thicker, and rounded.

> the canards up front are rounded and not angular.

> the textures should mirror more their WC2 counterpart, i know they're cartoony, but we really should strive to keep the looks from all the games.

Again, the shuttle looks great, and with the fixes mentioned above the rapier will look every bit as good :)
