Ala Wing Commander 1 of course.
Been working on this for a week or so. Bless the Wing Commander CIC website for all the
refs they have. Just got done detailing and adding materials to the laser cannons and missles.
I was doing the first mission in my old Wing Commander game, and thought it would be cool to
try building some of those old ships.
one of my favourites, as I love sandbox games the best. Finished the armour plating on the
I'm working on all of the Wing Commander Prophecy Fighters starting with the F-110 Wasp
I was going to start with the hornet. I wanted to stuff people don't often do. I love that someone was thinking the same.
Starkiller - The model is off to a great start! My only crit so far would be that the armour in that last shot looks a little too pronounced. IMHO, I think it would look less "CG" if you dropped the height of the panels a little. Apart from that...Loving it. I saw this posted on the WC CIC site today and you actually inspired me to dig Howard Day's model out again and do a new image - I've got one of the background plate passes rendering out as we speak. Thanks for inspiring me to fire up Max for the first time in many, many months.
Comco: You better post that when you're done. :P
Would like someone to redo WC again with upgraded graphics.
wonderful model. The hull armour is 10mm with the wing armour being half that, at 5mm. Should I make them all 5mm? The laser light
show in the cannon internals, was just me being fancy-pantsy. I was playing around and liked the effect. If you feel it would better without
it, I can change it easily enough. ^_-
I'm just a nubie, sir.
I need a lot of work and I'm on a HP Turion X2 1.6 lap top. I need a serious upgrade.
Nothing is better than the X-wing, B-Wing and the Gunstar as fighters go...but Wing Commander has the best collection of fighters any where. I've not seen Better designs.
As you can hopefully see around these parts, we're happy to give out constructive crits and advice if you want it so don't let being a nugget stop you from posting.
Couldn't agree more about the designs - Which is why it mystifies me that they threw it all out the window for follow-ons like the Wing Commander movie. To me, the WC3, WC4 and Prophecy designs were some of the finest low-poly fighter designs ever pulled off, because you didn't look at them and immediately think - they look like that because they had to be low poly. Freespace, Freelancer and similar games had designs that made it obvious they were working to a polygon limit.
I will. By the by, I have very limited options for making renders because of a lack of ships...If I were to have a larger selection...Say, the Tiger's Claw or a Scimitar bomber etc, I'd probably make more images.
My gut feeling is that it would look better at a uniform 5mm but it's hard to judge without seeing it. I'd say give it a try
Good looking Hornet by the way!
