Somebody recently has just submitted a new 'endgame' voyager on bcfiles, but this time is uses MVAM to actually transform voyager from 'normal', to armour covering. Now its good try, but the armour on the ship still looks really off. Most of the attemtps Ive seen have been done just by trying to drawing the armour, which dosent give the ship a good look. The way I see it, its because theres not enough infomation about what the ship actually looks like when its armoured, so Ive decided to set this thread. Basiclly the idea is for eveyone to find good clear images of the armoured voyager, and post them here, so that modlers and designers can get a better idea of what voyager should look like. Heres five images Ive found so far: side view: http://www.gamingforums.com/attachment.php?attachmentid=23379&stc=1 Transforming: http://www.gamingforums.com/attachment.php?attachmentid=23380&stc=1 Full armour: http://www.gamingforums.com/attachment.php?attachmentid=23382&stc=1 Transphasic topeodo launcher: http://www.gamingforums.com/attachment.php?attachmentid=23383&stc=1 Ablative armour generators: http://www.gamingforums.com/attachment.php?attachmentid=23378&stc=1
i have a few too, so here ya go... i also put one in of the Admiral's shuttle, in case someone needs it
i found a few more pics, incase someone needs more :)
someone should try to find a pic of the armored voyager showing the main deflector. thats the biggie i think
thats a good idea.... i cant really remember wether the entire deflector was covered or not...
i think it was covered but only up to where the blue starts. Same as the warp necelles.
I think there are three things not correct on the new Endgame Voyager. 1. The top is flat instead of round. 2. The middle deck cover is supposed to be darker. 3. The area around that orange thing is not what it should be.
I guess there two points that are needed to be considred when modelling the armoured voyager. One, you need a whole new model to show the extra features, and two you need the proper texture.
one thing im not sure about though, is wether the armor reflects light (yes, yes, i know to have color and all it does) but does it reflect light in the normal way a hull does? or is it duller?
oh, and one thing i think that a new mod (or a V2 of the existing one) should definatley have is a cutscene
The saucer ended up being longer and noone does the spin correctly either.
I wonder how the engines work under the armor...I mean will they still pivot. Of course it probably dosent matter the ship could still warp.
