So FahreS sent in these two lovely meshes for us to use, and I don't quite know what to think. On the one hand, yay for new models for someone to work with and make Armada II compatible! And nice bonus for the people who play other games like Bridge Commander, Legacy and so on-- new ship port made easy!!
On the other hand, it personally does nothing for me. I can't port nor convert these ships to .SOD format. I can look at them (and they look nice), gaze longingly at them, wonder what they're like, but I can't touch them. It's like high school all over again. :p
I'm a bit off from the staff tradition here, it seems, because I don't really regard 3D meshes as being completed MODs. They're meshes, yes. But (having never done this myself) I was under the impression that it's creating the 3D model that's hard-- converting to .SOD, bunking together an .ODF, making buildbuttons and wireframes.... THESE are the easy parts. Are they or are they not? FahreS himself put together a whole tutorial to show us all how to make killer buttons and wireframes. This all makes me very confused as to why FahreS wouldn't throw together a quick .ODF and include the 3D model along with the .SOD file.
But don't take that as criticism of the mesh, by any means. One is a fancy looking "pre-TOS vessel" that looks like a cross between a Surya/Miranda class starship and a school desk. The other "non-Trek bomber" looks kinda like a giant torpedo. Or a zeppelin reproducing by mitosis. I don't know. Without textures it's hard to tell what to make of these ships. They could be great. And FahreS gives you permission to make of them what you will, provided you want to try. We'll see what y'all come up with, it seems. Just be sure to give FahreS credit when you do.
