Hustle & Bustle on the Concordia's Flight DeckHoward Day's Concordia Hangar continues to fill up, and it's quite the hive of activity now! Prototype models of the Rapier, Crossbow and Epee have been added to give it a full WC2 assortment of ships. The substantial Crossbow bomber makes things especially crowded alongside the Broadsword and Sabre. When presented to scale, it's absolutely clear why there's a need for a fighter mix that includes smaller light, medium and patrol craft. The Crossbow has come along the furthest since the last update. Although it isn't colored yet, its detailed textures have already been applied in the direct shots below. Visit the flight deck for yourself here! The entire bay renders right in your web browser. Arrow keys walk, the mouse looks and the F key takes you full screen.
So now all the WC2 fighters are in there! The only one giving me a headache is the Crossbow - the thing is 24M long, and that's just not enough room to fit a turret on the back end. I think I might end up removing the lowermost rear engine to make space for it. :\ I just don't know. I could probably make the Crossbow tail turret smaller (maybe 80% the size) and still fit a dude in there. Anyhow, take a look and let me know what you think!
Got an update on the Crossbow! I've almost finished with primary texturing, and I'm moving onto the Cockpit, Turret, and Landing Gear. This is very close to the original game model - mostly modified in the areas of the cockpit, forward guns, and a little around the engines. The cockpit had to be modified to match the other in-game shots, while the guns needed to be added. I changed the engines, because...I liked how they looked. I hope you can forgive me. :)
