Hmmm, beef frigate :) I agree with you that the nose is a bit long.

Anyways, I see that you are using the 3d to 2d workflow again Kazi. Any other cool things in store?

Er... I have ideas that are (probably) within my coding ability, but not much else. Been pretty busy with work lately.

And yeah, the whole normal/material map thing means that there's actually an advantage using to the 3D approach again. It's not nearly as hard as I remember, and I've dodged most of the usual pitfalls so far. I have a nasty habit of stringing together a whole bunch of extrude commands for the hull (making all of the hulls have a center that is pretty much a long cylinder/rectangle), but somehow managed to work around that this time.

next ship! this one is a small speedy scout ship. (WIP still).


xlandar, getting much better! Good details, I see the variation in shading and the breakup of solid areas. Keep it up!

Hey all.
Just spent half an hour cutting out the vanilla turrets for use with my ships. Figured I'd post them here too, in case anyone needs/can use them.

The split ones are for ships that mirror along the Y axis.

Useful resources aye.

Not much to be said, just testing weapons sprites...

Spoiler

Urumi class 'fan' PD laser; probably going to shrink the thing, it seems far too bulky for a small mount.


Deva class anti ship beam.  Just a big stupid damage blaster.  Got to think of something more clever for this and its smaller cousin.

That's a very creative PD weapon... I like it! The tri-beam thing is rather cool too.

It looks good, but it lacks depth. Add shadows to the edges and where the elevation changes, and bam. Instant (maybe) 10/10.

I agree w/ TheBawkHawk add some darker shading, it looks like it doesn't have enough contrast. Otherwise it is really slick

Here is something for the Naysmyth mod I am assisting with. I know it is hard to balance a frigate sized carrier and I am figuring out a way to balance it, but how's it look?

It looks pretty good, but those back fins really irks me.

And while you smooth that out, maybe add some stronger shading on them as well, right now it's pretty hard to see what layer they're supposed to be on.

As in the back fins are too jaggy?

Yeah, kinda like how the first draft of my frigate was, if you remember that. Other than that, maybe a bit of touching up on the shadows, as they're all the same colour. I find it works better if its more gradual, if you know what I'm talking about. One of the biggest (although still pretty small) offenders of this is right above the right-side circle i made. Again, not much of an issue, just a bit of nitpicking.
