I've decided to come out of retirement and rework some of my old ship models. I've started with the Zeus Class Cruiser. It's one of many others I plan on rebuilding. I plan on rebuilding the Concorde and the Galaxy-3 as well. I plan on completing one ship at a time. I will submit them to Armada2Files individually.
So, this is what I have so far for the Zeus. I will have textures soon, but I need to reinstall several of my old tools first. P.S. I neglected to mention that it weighs in at 663 polys (triangles).
Nice ship, and nice to see you back draconis_sharp
Indeed, it is good to see you back, and with a nice ship, which stands fairly low on pollies, it would be a job well done. All we need now are some textures ;)
When you finish redoing the Zeus and the Galaxy 3, would you let me throw them into the Armada 2.5 re-release? I look the look of the Zeus though. Can't wait to see it textured. It's great that you're back too.
Well, I finally textured the Zeus. Unfortunately, I made a few significant errors. I rushed through without checking myself and I made a few mistakes. The most noticable would probably be that it looks low-res. I did a poor job of deciding what should go where, and I paid for it. I won't make the same mistakes with the CV-401 Enterprise.
The cake is a lie.There is no cake.

No offence, but it looks really quite cartoonish and I'd honestly say, it un-binds the work done on the mesh :(
Yeah, when I was making the texture I didn't have any references to go by, so I started making stuff up of the top of my head.
Sorry Draconis, but I'm with Joel on this one. Those textures ruin the model and don't look Federation at all. :(
