SuperStarAsh. Why be unhappy with it?? Considering Queballs poly count on his original model wouldn't it make sense to lower the poly count by rebuilding the model and then applying his textures to it?? Yes it does take much longer than a straight conversion but at least your more gaurenteed to have alot more people download it.

Quick edit. Is the attached image okay Porty??

Quick update. Except for the actual wireframe, damage and borgified textures (which are being worked on) the rest is ready, so it may not be much longer.

Right... I s'pose its better than the stock one... But it just doesn't look right!! The necelles look wrong and the saucer doesn't look right!!! Soz to sound negative... But doesn't look much like the BC one that i was looking for!!

Why not make a high poly count one!? i know it will slow some games but put a warning on there! Also, the one you have displayed for Porty as a wireframe!! Is this what it is gonna look like? If not then i take my above comments back!!!

eh? You must be joking, having seen the model up close I gotta say I've no idea what you are on about. How does the saucer look incorrect? exactly how are those nacelles wrong, it really is a far superior madel at a fraction of the resource cost.

here is a comparison shot, I see the saucer is shaped different to the original activision model but it is so much better all around.

:mad: :mad:

To say I'm furious is putting it mildly. Now do I release it or just post some screenshots.......Time to have a serious think about this.

The saucer looks to... long.. (two streched) and the necelles: if you look at them the blue bit looks like it has been cut off either end!

I mean: http://bridgecommander.filefront.com/screenshots/8/files2/31597_3.jpg Big difference!! Maybe it is good, just doesn't look as good as i hoped in the wireframe pic you sent for porty...

your judging it on that angle, I cant see much difference to be honest except s stary background and some interesting lighting. as for the stretch saucer the original had an even longer saucer if you look.

I didn't see that picture before i started my messege!! Ok, so it looks nice at the angle you have it! But... at the bottom angle (birds eye view) The saucer section looks a little too small.. Not wide enough!? As for the necelles.. there the right shape! (could be connected to the hull a little further back) but the blue lines (on top) behind the red stuff.. i got all these names in the star trek fact files but cannot be bothered to look! OK... How do you insert an image into this!? I have just done something on paint with what i am trying to explain but can't seem to put it in here!!!
