    There's eight turrets all together. I haven't finished the four that go on the legs for use when it has landed. The turrets on top are not used at all when the ship is on the ground as far as I know.

    Besides, if stuff gets that close in, you probably don't want to be tagging it with a 250mw Beam Laser ... let alone multiples of them!

    Keep it up, I love seeing this old design resurrected and given a fresh take.

    Thanks. Work will keep me away for the next week. When I get back I'll start modeling the two 50-ton cutters for it.

    Here is the Modular Cutter for the Broadsword so far. They dock inside the cruiser.

    Started texturing. Still more details to add.

    Great designs all. They might be modified to fit other genres.

    Over the last 30 years the designs probably have been modded for more games than I even know of!
    Looking good Shonner. It's pretty low polly so are you going to put it in a game?
  • ShonnerShonner354 Posts: 81Member
    It's low poly because I won't be doing any close up renders. These are for background use. I have no idea how to make content for games and for which games. I'd like to know what game on youtube shows these ships zooming about. Or were you talking about RPG mods?

    Trying out a scene render. Still a WIP.

    And a glamour shot render from Vue. No postwork.

    RPG mods :)
    We didn't have anything to mod 30, 25, even 20 years ago when it comes to computer games :lol:

    I really like your last picture BTW. It has a very nice feel to it.

    Thanks. The finished scene was used for the cover of Freelance Traveller.

    Nice shot.

    Great picture but... Unstreamlined? ;)

    Still, it looks good. A drive flare might be a good idea to include, as well as Tobias Richters' comments earlier about improving the turrets when you get round to adding the last 4. This is definitely one of the best Broadswords I've seen lately and the Freelance Traveller cover is almost an iconic image.

    They remind me to the Overlord landing pods from MechWarrior....

    Cool work.

    Just lovely. Evokes Chris Foss with the tubes sliding out.

    That's some great work all around. That last one reminds me of an old novel cover. :)

    That's what I was thinking after it rendered. Here's another one.
