Well, I got a little side-tracked today and I ended up starting on a Wraith hiveship. I noticed a lack of a hiveship for A2 and I decided I would give it a go.

I won't start in on the textures for this ship until I finish the Zeus, so it may be a while before I submit this to A2Files. As it stands now, the hiveship weighs in at 944 polys. hiveship01ft7.png

Awesome work, looks great so far, will you be releasing this baby too when completed? If so I would love to have it as a map unit in Parallels.

Yes, I will release it, both on Armada2Files and at AFC.

Draconis. Might I make one suggestion. Because this is basically a capital ship, you could have at least 1100 more polys and it would still be fine for either Armada game.

Yes, I had given it some thought. I may make some changes before I send it off. The ship is so large, about 5,000 meters in length I think, that you would only have a one or two at the most. If I were making a Stargate themed mod, I would use it in place of a starbase.

I dont think this ship need's anymore poly's.. it's a very simple design/shape.. and from the look's of it you've done a good job.. its accurate.. all you need is a good texture on this "baby" hive_scale.jpg

Yes I agree here, 944 pollies is very low indeed, have it at 2000 would be no problem and give the ship more detail after all it's a Capital/Command ship. :)

I've made a few changes, such as smoothing the outline of the hull and I've made a few adjustments to the ventral side of the ship. It stands now at 1820 polys. hiveship03ma8.png

Wow that looks great, what program are you using to model the hive ship?
