I've found the Malevolence model some time ago, but it had bad texture and no turrets. That is why I created my own texture for it and this is how it looks now:

picture.php?albumid=366&pictureid=5455

So, now it needs turrets. I've created new turret (edited Venator-from-mod turret) and looked for information about its code in some mods, and copied it from the same Venator turret. Here it is (with changes) :

Spoiler: Show

HARD_POINT_WEAPON_LASER Yes Yes TEXT_WEAPON_TURRET 2500.0

Large_Explosion_Space Unit_Hardpoint_Turbo_Laser_Death

Malevolence_turret_C_01.ALO FC_BONE_05 FC_BONE_05

20.0 FP_Turret_FC_Bone_05 No 20.0 30.0 True

Yes 0.0, 0.0, 0.0 0.0, 0.0, 0.0 6.0 360.0 90.0 Turret_FC_Bone_05 Barrel_FC_Bone_05

Proj_Ship_Turbolaser_Green 0.5 0.5 6 0.2 2800.0 Unit_Turbo_Fire Fighter, 30.0 Bomber, 30.0 Transport, 30.0 Corvette, 5.0 Frigate, 4.0 Capital, 3.0 Super, 1.0

But it just adds the turret on my ship, because the turret doesn't rotate and fire... Names Turret_Bone_Name and Barrel_Bone_Name are correct. But even if they aren't, why it does not rotate?

The image still isn't showing up...which is disappointing, I'd really like to see the texture you made.

The only thing that I've understand is that you said about the darkness of the mid part. And yes, I agree with you. It's because I didn't break the model to pieces (I have done it earlier, but then I had a lot of problems with bones). But yesterday I decided to make a new model with new texture which will looks like this(at least to be similar):

You can say:all the Malevolence's models have been created to be similar to the original, but not all of them are really similar to it. Of course I will not make all of its turrets be able to rotate, because there are about 180-200 turrets and even if their size will be 500 Kb, the full model size will be about 10-15(model) + 180-200 * 0.5 (turrets) Mb = 100-115 Mb. I will make the hard turrets to be turrets and the others will be hardpoints. Looks like I'll have to spend a lot of time on it, but I want to do it. It will be cheerful! :D P.S. does anybody know how to connect to EvilleJedi? I tried to connect to him on moddb, but he didn't answer (he was on-line since I've wrote to him, and I re-write to him, but he didn't answer again)

I dont think EJ wants his models ported from SOASE. So making a new model Roland will be best. However there are several Malevolence models out, most of them are on EEAW and AB. I dont think the authors chose to upload them here for various reasons.

If I were you Z, I'd say "Just wait till RaW is released, because we've got the best Malevolence around" :p
