I will build it
So does the"body" animation happen on build and the “open” animation happen on deployment?
I think I’m making these textures a ‘bit’ too similar, but then again the ship is very different in concept, so I suppose it doesn’t harm to get too close in the texture to equalize that difference. Also we’re talking about Vaygr Fighters which are really all the same. In most other cases it would be an error.
Good practice at least, even if it’s painfully unimaginative. Apart from the background gray metal it’s all hand made.
I’m sure you’re doing the right thing… best to save the imaginative texturing for the really different pieces, don’t you think? Looks great and authentic… I’d rather have really authentic Vaygr Fighter texturing than unnecessarily dynamic and imaginative texturing. So… great work!!!
I agree, I think it looks great. Consistency is a good thing, as you say the two ships are similar in size and role.
WoooOOOOOOW. That’s a big update there! Starting to look very far along from the posterior view!!! And not just far along, but gorgeous!
Glad you like it.
The last thing in the main body diffuse is the cockpit, but I decided I’ll take it mostly from the Assault Craft for consistency. Then last finishing touches on the normal map and then specular and reflections and the texturing is past half way finished.
Then the arms textures, which is on the second separate texture sheet.
I have a strong feeling someone wants to siege Hiigara again …
Oh, wonderful! I couldn’t remember if you planned to make a new vette or not. What kind of a thing is it?!?
A Spy Corvette. A weaponless short sensor range cloaker. The best friend of every Vaygr Artillery unit commander.
Hiigarans can’t see this thread. It’s top secret.
It looks awesome. You should hold onto that! Unless it looks a lot sillier in action than it does as a still image.
I’m not working on anti-matter vaporization, it’s an artillery warhead. I’m thinking the DoK style arty FX.
This wasn’t it.
Not to totally miss the point, but what’s the scoop on that badge?
The badge has a scoop?
Well, I mean, what is the story? What is it representative of???
