Re: Previews from the impatient

I've updated the hull of the Kodiak and it's come along nicely for the most part. But now I'm stuck, I can't come up with any more detail to put on it before I start shading. Anyone have any suggestions?

Re: Questions here: an inquiry thread! [Updated Sep 15th, 2014]

@Chrono Vortex: I've got a suggestion for making the shading. I don't know if you're already using this method or not, but i think it's worth explaining it anyway. Wow. I'm not even a third of the way into a process like this by any means, I've just been trying to get the general idea of the hull a...

Re: Questions here: an inquiry thread! [Updated Sep 15th, 2014]

I've been examining the original hull art of several ships and I can't seem to pin down just where the imaginary light source is relation to the ship is, does anyone have an approximate idea? Also, parts of the ship at a higher elevation could be slightly brighter, right?

Re: Previews from the impatient

All the mods I've made so far have just been recolored hulls with some altered weapons, so I'm trying to make something from scratch. Anyone ever played Tiberian Sun? this is supposed to be a recreation of the GDI Kodiak, here's what I have so far: [Got rid of that old image, a newer one is... somew...

Re: [SHIP] GDI Kodiak

If I do end up making a spliced together hull, I'm going to modify it after it's all together until nothing is recognizable as part of the ship it came from. I want this to be as original as possible.

Re: [SHIP] [AE] The Pythia

There's so many mods out there that have been done hundreds of times before, I'm glad someone thinks this isn't one of them. I wish I could do more than just recolor the hull, but a can never seem to get anything made from scratch to look right.

It's great to finally have the Enterprise E's hull adapted to FTL's art style instead of something else pulled out of a Google image search, these things look gorgeous.

[SHIP] GDI Kodiak

This thing is going to the Previews from the impatient thread. Sorry I didn't put it there first, it was buried under a bunch of other stuff at the time and I didn't notice it.

Re: [SHIP] [AE] The Pythia

The Forgotten seemed to want attention when they were around, getting to outer space is a good way to do that. They tended to use tech from other factions, so probably throwing some gibs together for the hull and whatever weapons I come up with for the other ships would be enough to call it good.

Re: [SHIP] [AE] The Pythia

I'm guessing the GDI ship will have an Ion Cannon for the Artillery. Does ion damage and heavy damage to enemy hulls... Actually you could always use the Kodiak since that's actually a spaceship and probably just about the same size as the Kestrel. As for Nod... umm the Monktauk got engines? You ca...
