Klavs has released his majestic Waterloo cruiser model, which has been in development for quite some time. It's not done up in a super fancy livery, but there are still many uses for such a high quality design. In fact, even though Klavs just released the model last night, L.I.F. has already imported it into Flag Commander, the Homeworld Remastered mod. It doesn't yet have stylistic consistency with the rest of the game, but the ship still looks cool! Grab the model here (63 meg zip).
Hi everyone, not sure when I'll ever get around to finishing the Waterloo Class Cruiser, so I thought I'd provide it as is. Symmetrical texure is baked and most of the topside details are there. Hope you like her, can't wait to see what the community does with her!
OK, so I had to split its hull parts into two, but there we go, a very nice heavy cruiser leaving its shipyard!
It doesn't have its turrets yet, but the joints for the missile batteries, torpedo tubes and heavy turrets are set as well as the engines and the hangar paths. In short, a "naked" cruiser. Now, as you can see, it's still a bit bright and I'll work a bit on darkening the textures (like a Privateer bah-dum, tss) and see whether it can be given a Confed green appearance. Though, TBH, I'm still pretty new at texturing, I'll most likely have to wait until someone more experienced can give it a shot.
