Tmp2 / [Colonial] Dreadstar - Status: WIP
« on: February 21, 2008, 02:28:54 AM »
I know that the 11th was the deadline, but it has whooshed past. This is commensurate with information I have on deadlines; generally they all do that. Douglas Adams would have agreed I'm sure.

On to matters: I've gone a bit experimental with interpreting the new designs. I got an eyeful of newman's Valkyrie and it got my mind going. So as you can see below, I took some cues from the Valkyrie design. The only things that are needed with respect to structure for implementation as a base asset are landing bays and the rear mega-gun base. The current turrets are *hopefully* properly named, and pivoted. All that is really needed, as I understand, is properly set-up turrets (all of them) and subsystems. What subsystems do we need? All of them (as listed in the 3dsmax Model Rigging thread) or just a few?

Question for Starslayer: Guns on the bottom? They aren't evident in the concepts, but I had to ask anyway.

Regardless, She's not quite ready for functional placeholder status yet, but I have a long weekend this. Just a couple of days more... gimme strength, lawd!

Full Campagh!

Tmp2 / Valve's Steamworks announced
« on: January 31, 2008, 10:41:06 PM »
Regardless, I made a BTRL steam group some time ago. I launch BTRL via steam shortcut so I can still have the networking and community connections that I have in valve games.

Join up!

UVWs. Don't mind the texture; it's just for alignment.

Hey everybody! Remind me please of the irc network and channel name.

Tmp2 / FRED Assets (Low Poly Pegasus, Etc.)
« on: January 09, 2008, 11:46:29 PM »
I was just made aware that the FRED academy padawans do not have access to our most sexy resources. While the reasoning behind this is quite sound, I think that it would be fantastic if we could give them SOMETHING of our capship and wip assets.

I recall someone, somewhere, sometime talking on the subject of porting Coxxon meshes into the game to use as placeholders until the final meshes were ready. That's a fine plan indeed, and If it has already been carried out and I've simply missed the memo, then cool. :)

In any case, I still have a low res Pegasus lying around that I figure would be safe to pass around. The overall shape is much more accurate than Coxxon's work (god bless him, he really accomplished a lot with that mesh pack), and with some guns and textures applied, she'll be quite ready for a more general consumption (and much less, er, expensive to have leaked in the case of such treachery).

Regardless, I'm uploading the raw mesh right now. You probably shouldn't distribute this mesh freely however.

If you want me to slap some textures to it, I can. Low polygon turrets are included in the RAR file. I have MAX9 format, ASE ASCII format, OBJ format and of course 3DS format in the RAR of both models. I have no clue how to port this stuff up properly, though I am quite open to learning.

Again, the point of this thread is to discuss getting rough but usable assets into the game for the use of the mission builders, thereby pulling this wrench out of the machine and allowing development to move along at an even faster pace.

Thoughts? Ideas? Suggestions? Crying? Confessions of deepest fears?

Tmp2 / Valkyrie model - Did I miss something ?
« on: January 09, 2008, 11:17:18 PM »
Those SFM models are accurate (excluding the liberties taken with the 'poseidon'), trust me. However, the roll-bar is not part of the design. It's part of the Scorpion Yards.
