    Now that's looking cool Hundred:thumb: I like the style of this new ship
  • Sly AssassinSly Assassin0 Posts: 0Member
    I really like that ship, she's nice and organic looking. Though I'd be tempted to remove the bit at the bottom on the tail and just have it like a stingray's spike :)
  • MephMeph331 Posts: 0Member
    Oh, that thing is looking very aquatic, good stuff!
  • [Deleted User][Deleted User]2 Posts: 3Member
    Indeed! Very submersible like! I'd get rid of the big tail and just put some downward+forward facing fins. The tail looks really heavy right now. I'd make the front intakes bigger too! :thumb:

    I know, I know, it's been a while. And I know I haven't finished most of this stuff, as well as other stuff. But I've been busy. Really, really busy. (Might not finish this one either, at least no time soon.)So... here's my latest. It's a redo (second redo), of my Cobra-fighter.

    Still got a lot to do to it though. Tell me what you think?:thumb:

    Just my 2p, but you should raise the nacelles high so they clear the wing.. intakes would in real life work better like that, and the thing would instantly look more interesting... Its looking a bit flat at the moment.
  • somacruz145somacruz1450 Posts: 0Member
    Yup what Coolhand said ! The overall shape of the Cobra is pretty nice though, it reminds me of those fictional toy airplanes :D
  • HundredHundred268 Posts: 1,020Member
    Thanks fellas, I had thought to raise them initially for the same reason, but I thought I could get away with. I guess I'll have to now.

    And also, I think it reminds me more of this:

    Thanx Ice-Dragon, appreciate the comment.

    In any case, nothing much to report, a few minor updates, I'll start on the interior tonight though.

    Okay, folks..... got side tracked again. But only slightly this time. This little thingy here goes with the insect guy, it's an Oliff Anirike Heavy-Cruiser. Hope to have an animation for it soon, that is once I finish with the texturing.

    This is my little yellow clunky, junky ship. Still not finished with it though, only a few more things to do. I amped-up the AO so everyone could see the darker areas better.

    Thank you RAF-MX, appreciate the comment. And yes, I like it as well. :thumb:

    I haven't done too much too it in the last two days in the way of building it, only just animating stuff. But I do have some size comparison renders and pics for it, to give everyone an idea of it's scale.

    And here are some basic statistics for it as well.


    Classification: Sentinel – D1

    Designation: Patrol Ship

    Affiliation(s): The Earth Consolidated Government (Nirehn Alliance)

    Years of Service: 2318 – 2328

    Extended Years of Service (Nirehn Alliance): 2328 – 2338 – (2342)

    Fleet Number: 220

    Serial Number: 3310 – 4B

    Range: 0.2389 light-years

    Speed: 0 – 102.66865 kps.

    Maneuverability: 1 2 3 (4) 5 6 7 8 9 10

    Armor: Titanium 3 (5” – double-plated)

    Armament: (2 – Fixed) Forward Fusion Plasma Cannons, (2 – Side Mounted) Dual Pulse Turrets, (2 – Side Mounted) Nuclear Missile Racks, 22 missiles per rack.

    Compliment: 5 (+8)

    Primary Power: Fusion Power Core

    Secondary Power: Cadmium Power Cells

    This is one of several dozen high speed, mid-range (1/4 ly), heavily-armed, Earth made patrol ships. Which, after 10 years of service (2318-2328), were retired and given to a slightly less advanced, (50 years give or take); human-like, humanoid, alien race known as the Nirehn. In order to help them, patrol and defend their own borders against hostiles in their region of space. But, after another 10 to 15 years in service to the Nirehn, and after the Nirehn had developed a more advanced fleet of ships. Which were mainly based on this design btw. The remainder of these, were again decommissioned and sold, by the Nirehn, to whom ever could afford to buy one.

    This particular ship was purchased by an Earth company, that converted it into a heavy, 0-G - construction/demolition vessel. And after serving another 15 years as a construction ship, it was sold yet again to two brothers who intend to transform it into a small-scale cargo ship. More on this story later…much later…

    A lot of good work, but I like especially of the last fighter you posted. :)
  • HundredHundred268 Posts: 1,020Member
    Haven't done much to it in the last week or so, but here are few updates.

    I should be able to start on the interior later this evening... hopefully.

    Only thing missing in the texture is a big "Wash Me!" carved out of all that grime. :lol:

    Good looking vehicle. :thumb:

    Looks a bit Freelancer-ish, which is a good thing in my book :)
  • HundredHundred268 Posts: 1,020Member
    Thanx all.... one moment......
  • HundredHundred268 Posts: 1,020Member
    Not too much of an update, been busy. Tell me what you think? :thumb:

    main.php?g2_view=core.DownloadItem&g2_itemId=1048&g2_serialNumber=2

    Also: With these peaks I'm trying to make a material similar to, but not exactly lava rock/stone. This is what I have so far, I think it's pretty close, but I need other opinions. Thought?

    I'm guessing you want a Basalt texture. http://geology.about.com/od/more_igrocks/ig/basalt/massivebasalt.htm

    Your current scene looks like it was done in Bryce 2 and the water looks plastic. I've seen a lot of good images done with Bryce (does anyone still use that program?) but it took a lot of adjustments to the lighting. So whatever program you're using, I'd definitely work on the scene lighting.

    Bryce 5.5 actually. And yes the water does look like a big sheet of visqueen now that you mention it. :lol: And, I still use bryce, as well as terragen, vue, blender, rhino, and several others. And I have nearly a dozen or so more, installed, that I don't use. Take that yellow ship for instance, the textures alone were made in, gimp, photoshop and image ready (cs2), inkscape, and paint. It was just a matter of which icon I saw first. But for now, with this terrain at least, I'm stuck with bryce, until I figure out why vue won't work on my new computer; I think it's the graphics card.

    And thanx for the comments, I found the perfect texture:

    I have VUE Infinite 7 installed on my system (the lil' eggs in that image to the left were rendered in it) that replaced Bryce. I don't have nearly that many software packages installed on my system. 3DS, trueSpace, VUE, terragen and Photoshop/Image Ready 7. Now that I think on it all of my software is outdated! But it still works and it was all paid for. LOL

    Glad you found a good texture for your landscape.

    @ Elowan: I know, I wasn't so keen on them when I first did them, but the kind of sort of need to be there. For reasons of functionality and such. But I may change them a little.

    @ Lizzy777: There's no such thing as outdated software in my opinion, I still use a few packages that were discontinued when Windows ME was still around. :lol: As long as you get what you need to get done, done and did, it's cool. But, bryce is going to have to go back on the external hd for a while, because I got vue working again. But it's Vue 7 Pioneer, 8 Infinite still won't run. I'm just going to have to get Render-Up and a few of the other plugins and add-ons to make pioneer work out for the time being.

    Thanx for the comment folks.

    Me too. Been using LW 7.5d since forever (despite that I have the later version). I'm just more comfortable with it.
  • HundredHundred268 Posts: 1,020Member
    Gonna have to try LW, right now I'm tinkering with ZBrush, Silo, and another one called Cyber Motion 3D-Designer. Here's another few minor updates, been busy, will pick back up with it soon.

    A few more update people. I have the rest of the weekend off after today so I should be able finish it out, at least the exterior. And I also added a two-man-amphibious-probe-thing I started on for a scene with the yellow ship.
