:feedback: Hi all, just thought I'd get some feedback on what will be my first little mod release. Although I've been floating around the community for about 3 or 4 years, I've never released anything due to my inability to make my own textures. :banghead: (I dont believe in re-using other people's work) So anyway, I've finally knuckled down and begun making textures at last, and am now working on my first project. My thoughts were to do something fairly small, but more importantly, something original. So I decided to go for some of the minor Alien ships from the Trek universe that I think should be represented. This pack will take the form of a station that can procuce about 13 or so ships. (I suspect its best use will be as a map unit) Anyway, most of my models are pretty much done and I'm in the installing and odf writing stages at the moment (the boring bit:yawn: ) z1hd1.th.jpg z2rt8.th.jpg z3ij7.th.jpg z5vm3.th.jpg z4is4.th.jpg z6nk4.th.jpg z8wb5.th.jpg z9fj8.th.jpg z10du5.th.jpg z11oq7.th.jpg z12jw6.th.jpg z13pt4.th.jpg z14pu3.th.jpg z15jc9.th.jpg z16qe6.th.jpg

Outstanding, looks great. I really look forward to this as I always loved the Delta Quadrant races.

Wooooo, they rock ;) I've been looking for a Talarian Observation craft for a while, though with no luck, now you've made one, I think I'll be using that (with permission of course) ;) You have a planned date to send them in?

Thanks guys, good to know I'm going in the right direction:) Well to answer some of your questions Ash, I built everything here in about 4 weeks. I've done most of the hard work, the array is ingame and working, and I've begun adding the ships to it. The plan was to have it out in the next 2 or 3 weeks but I have other commitments and it's more likely to be sometime December now. The Array will build 13 ships via a wormhole (as the caretaker could suck in ships from across the Galaxy) However, I am including at least 3 other aggressive alien ships that will be special weapons (like the species 8472 quantum effect weapon) and I've still got to build 2 of these. The Hirogen will be one of them as its poly count is a liitle high to be buildable. I'm planning on building a Pralor vessel plus one other I've not decided on yet. Regarding the Talarian ship, I am not entirely happy with it yet. The textures were the first ones I made, and I've already experimented changing them (see below picture) Also the diagrams that I built the Observation Craft from, were not great, and I've since seen other versions with the wider nose like the Talarian Warship. I may well re-work this one;) To be fair, I hadn't considered other people wanting to use my models, but I dont mind as long as people ask permission as you have (and use proper credits of course) z1fc3.th.jpg

Well, I have a Talarian Warship with some nice textures that fit. I know your not a fan of using other peoples' work, but if needs be, I could always re-texture the model using the textures I've got (for myself). :) Still, I await December, I see this getting many downloads ;)

I've got to say that I watched Fantastic 4 last night and....man, Jessica Alba is FIT :naughty: :clap: :hump: !!!!!!!!! Anyway I was not aware Talarian ships had been made before, I'd be curious to see one. Anyway, when I've finished tinkering with this mod I'd be happy to send you the Ms3d file to make it easier to re-texture it if you wanted. You would have to remind me nearer the time as, being an 'old git' the memory is the first thing to go! :kerian:

:lol: Yup, Jessica Alba is a fine lady ;) And no problems about the ships, I'll remind you closer to the date, or, if you release the package, I'll just download it from there. And about the Talarian ships already, there aren't any public ones for A2, the one I have I converted from SFC.
