Hi all! This is my first post on FileFront. And this is the second map i've ever done. Due to my inexperience, I fear that this task may be far too big for me. I will, however, do my best. Many of you will be able to Identify it Immediately. It is in a draft-stage at this point, but I do plan to have a "Decent" finished project. The map will be RP oriented. If anyone could contribute some guides as to how to put my own custom graphics in GTKRadiant, that would greatly help me :)
''space, the final frontier''
more pictures, more pictures!:)
No, man, you got the shape all wrong. The saucer is perfectly circular, the main hull is shorter and sorta looks like a stretched and capped egg, the nacelles also taper at the back and the pylons connecting them to the main hull are longer.
I am certainly no trekie but this does look like it will be rather impressive.....while it may not be a keeper for my base folder (not really into star trek)..ill certainly dl when its done and check it out.
It looks much better in-game :P
I thought that, too, when I was making it. I eventually re-did it, because when you fly around the saucer it just feels...wrong...
I do understand the tapering, As I said, it is in a VERY rough stage of it's life, and my inexperience limits me to what I can do.
Dont fear, however, I have no intention of releasing a half-baked map and souring anyone's view of the shit.
It's not just the shape that's wrong, it looks like the scale is really off.
If that's for a prefab, I'd scale it by at least 1.5 along all three axis. It is a big ship, after all.
Assuming I'm correct in presuming that you're going to be mapping an interior area for RP purposes.... well, spawn an info_player_deathmatch and see for yourself.
I don't know how, and I don't know why, but this is totally Sheep's fault.
Yes, I was too lazy to bind the screenshot. Sorry.
Believe me, guys, I realize it DOES need work. However, other than the tapering pylons and the rear-structure in general, it all looks very nice and solid.
I dont plan on releasing it tommorow :P
I need more practice / Info on Brush manipulation and shaping.
If you need pictures of the Enterprise (or any other Starfleet ship), feel free to contact me on MSN. I have almost 900 MB of various Star Trek pictures, so yeah, I`m your Trekkie. ;)
Its still in a VERY early stage.
Please remember, this IS only my second map.
