Hi i have thought about it and have decided to make my own ship class Universe Class. This will be my first ship so i will need some help creating it. does anyone know any tutorials for using gmax to create stuff and creating textures from scratch including Ship names. Also what other software will i need to create this class.
Well my blueprint is complete. it's my avatar, it a mulgomation of Intrepid, galaxy and sovereign classes.
For the use of the name Universe class(which is a great name by the way)would entail the use of a starship more along the lines of a Federation command carrier wouldn't you agree, universe class that being larger than a galaxy class. ;)
For tutorials, please seach LegacyFiles! There are some helpful guides there, made by Gdata and AcidFluxxBass.
I have looked at some of the tutorials and looked at some of the gmax tutorials and it makes some heads and tails of it but it's going to be slow going.
For Gmax you'd need alot of stuff. It is hard to get exporters that work.
Plus I hope you know you need Milkshape to hardpoint it for legacy.
Good luck though
Yes your going to be needing Milkshape one way or the other so I suggest you focus on trying to get your hands on one(very crucial). Another major thing you'll be needing is a photo shop program for managing your textures. The other little things you'll need along the way(patches, plug-ins, etc.)is mentioned in those Legacy toturials. :)
I have got Adobe Photoshop CS4 with the DDS plugin and I going to download Milkshape when the gmax model is done.
Nice Universe class like a BC ship!
