It shouldn't be, no - post patch files built with HODOR will shorten the names/paths - and that should fix it. Generally though, you should split them off to their own texture - it improves the chance to re-use them, protects them from being used with a lower quality based on a card's 'max texture size' setting (which can be lower than you think based on user pref) - as they'll probably end up on a smaller texture that doesn't need to scale down - where the ship won't.
I think I'll just remap it someplace else and leave an awkward hole in the original one. It'll make me look like a moron if anyone ever looks inside, but it's apparenty objectively an improvement to what I have now.
Yup, you own that awkward hole!
Wow, and POUK says MY ships designs are way too OP . . .
How does one establish communication with you OUTSIDE the forum, good sir. I may have a proposal for your models, IF you're interested.
You can send me pm here at forums or at moddb http://www.moddb.com/members/uni1
You can also just PM them - it's private (unless they add people), and still somewhat anon. Please don't reply here with any personal or contact info
as a new member, I don't have PM ability . . . yet, unfortunately. I shall try to continue the conversation over on ModDB to keep from unnecessarily spamming this thread.
Apologies for the noobness . .
Nah, it's okay! I didn't know newbs can't PM...
Just a turret wip.
It's supposed to replace dual barrel hiigaran mass drivers. Which is used in destroyers and such.
Also found that turrets in HWRM actually have teamcolors, but no stripe?
Blue is teamcolor in pics.
Why would a DD turret need stripe colors?
Technically there's no reason not to allow it, but that's not what I'm pointing at.
In the big picture, on a big capital ship as a whole, the stripe colors are sparse and having them on all turrets from no other reason than that you could would feel incredibly forced.
I did not say that i was going to put stripes on em.
I guess "but no stripe" kinda gived that i was going to put stripes on this. Oh well.. i am not.
Actually i was first going for non team/stripe colors turret, but then looked hw2 destroyer and found that they have team colors but no stripe.
Sometimes coincidences occur.
It's from one of those chinese mods, I think it's called Fey Yali.
Not saying you should change anything, just letting you know.
I dont get it. what i am supposed to look at
They have pretty nice things there tho.
EDIT: now the image actually shows
Yeah it haves some elements similar to my own.
But those long barrels are long gone from my design and flaps/wings are not really my thing with bigger ships.
I like the top part of the turret.
Reason why i was not happy with first one was primarily that it did not had gun depression that much. Now it haves -10/+55 and looks reasonable when being at those positions.
I try to make these turrets have much gun depression as possible. Gun elevation is not really problem as long i have more than 45 degrees.
I think it looks good too!
I didn't bother to do that much little details as you cant really look turret from this close anyways. And it's not really a big turret.
