...oops, what happened to the topic? Does it start to hide (=replace by link) images for other people, too?
Well, anyway - thanks for the feedback, Star Dragon and gamingfan. @Star Dragon:
Erm... none of my SSDs is organic in a way that I would know of - so I don't really see the point in your argumentation.
Except if you'd have referred to the Inferno with "monster", of course. Though the Inferno is a bomber, and I assumed "monster" as referring to ships usually refers to their size... ??@gamingfan:
Thanks. But certainly, lots of other sites do have screenshots here and there - for example Hard Light Productions
, the main Freespace fansite, does have pictures in quite several forum threads.
It's just that it's easier to attach the images here on GW, which is why I made this thread here, as I haven't yet found an external picture host that I'd quite like...
Though by now, it's also possible to attach pictures at HLP, though there's a limited space for it that'll likely be cleaned up every now and then... :-/
So anyway, some new info:
Firstly, last time I forgot to mention that I by now consider the Auroras' model to be mostly finished and started with UV-mapping it. But don't hold your breath, as that's quite a task on itself.
Secondly, there's two pictures of the current stage of my now textured Jalkehi. Problem is, I'll have to change the UV-map on this one, too, before I can continue texturing it.
Don't mind the small distortion on the large wings' markings in the first pic, though, as this just is the square where insignias should be placed on, and somehow it's UV-map also turned out a bit backwards.
And here's a reference picture of the original Jalkehi from Wing Commander 2 , taken with the WC2shipviewer that you can download at the WC CIC:
Then I also want to make a cockpit for the Inferno (yep, that's right
First, the basic geometric shape of the cockpit, elevated out of the main model:
And second, the WIP-version of it's pilot (which I actually did last sunday afternoon). Yes, I know it's still missing the legs:
On a sidenote, I'm using the following picture for reference, which I had downloaded in the early times of FS2 (file date is actually 12th February 2000) .
The problem is that I have absolutely no clue from where exactly I got this, but still would like to use it as pilot picture online, and maybe also as avatar in some forums.
It DOES look pretty much like a Volition picture, but I still think I got it from some community-site, though I don't have a clue which one that might have been.
So, if you should happen to know where this pic originated from, please let me share that knowledge:
Oh, and I also posted some short information about the campaign that my FS-themed models were initially thought for here
Else than this:
