    I had quite literally just spent 3 hours typing, and my creativity spent, couldn't think of anything better to say, my earlier 'nice' just doesn't do this fine ship justice, lol.
  • DarkoneDarkone177 Posts: 258Member
    I want one!
    looking better and better every day!

    just thought I'd try a texture on it
    obviously nowhere near finished, but I got tired of staring at default white color :D

    more please.
  • maybe this was already asked and I missed it, but is there a landing bay in there somewhere? Otherwise, looking great.
  • backsteptbackstept1989 Posts: 912Member
    no landing bays . . . only airlock hatches

    I have been working on my version of a Colonial Defender for about 2 months. There are about a hundred pieces of paper around the place showing various configurations for it, but none of them have ever totally satisfied me. Sitting here now looking at your mesh I finally worked out how I am going to do it. Thankyou for the inspiration, and BTW great work.

    I showed this to Todd Boyce over at SCN (Starship Combat News) Forum. He was very impressed by your take on the ship. BTW I think its awesome too. Keep up the work, I like your Cygnus design too, nice little support ship. Have you concidered a true Battleship along its design?

    really? that's cool, thanks :D
    I haven't really given much thought to other BSG designs, mostly because there are many BSG wips that are going on here at the moment, and I don't want to add to the chaos :D
    and also a side result of that is that it seems like everything has been done already, or certain things have been done to death, and I'd rather do something new :thumb:

    I'd love to see your version :thumb:
    who knows? it might inspire me to get back to work on mine!

    hey, mrwoodchuck61, nice to see you in his neck of the woods, hope ya like the place.

    Hope you dont mind my posting this Backstept but IIRC you once said you like seeing other versions of your work so heres mine. Its only around 3000 polys so the detail is sparse to say the least. (BTW. Hardest piece of this to do was the engine core).

    The textured version looks cool! Can we see other views?

    Off topic: I made hand drawings for Galactica too, some years ago. IA’ll post them in the 2d WIPs section later. ;)

    Actually backstept. The low poly game model is complete and was made using Milkshape 3d. I only model low poly, so the likes of 3dmax studio are only used for reference renderings and model conversions.

    I'm just glad your WIP reference shots were clear and reasonably easy to follow.

    VERY cool design - has a lot of hybrid elements in it between the two shows and they work well together. I like the big energizer pod in the middle.
