This has to be one of the best looking Space Dock models I have seen. I am not quite sure on the poly count of them though, however, they do look high. Nevertheless, for a Station of this size, I do not see that as a problem. You aren't / shouldn't have the need to go filling up your map with them.
I believe the scaling is a little off though, compared to a ship in one of the pictures. Though, again, you can't really be fussy about this. Considering the size of ships, stations and planets in Armada, this has been made big enough.
I am also to understand there are three models of this Station, all different. I can't personally tell them apart from the screenshots, maybe they're different in-game? Who knows. But yeah, if you are a fan of the Federation, and are in need of a Space Dock (or a new one) then this would be a definate download.
Hi, here is my version of the federation spacedock and two variants of it. fdock_ur depicts the larger TNG – Version of the spacedock that can support even the largest federation ships. fdock2 depicts the smaller TMG – Version fdock3 can be used as a variant of it. fdock_ur is a HQ-Model with 7148 polys. fdock2 is a HQ-Model with 7988 polys. fdock3 is a HQ-Model with 8204 polys. fdock2 / 3 have higher poly- counts due to their antennae configuration Since all run perfectly on my computer I think that’s no problem. I am using large texture files for the stations (1024 x 1024). This my lead to problems with some older computers / graphic cards ( Excessive lagging for example) . I experienced none but cannot guarantee otherwise. So you have been warned. I made the models following the photos that you can find on the net. If you want to see some reference go to http://www.ex-astris-scientia.org/ Do not be astonished about the long weapons list. The stations is quite tall so they are needed. I have seldom seen it using them all. If you do not like it change it. HP- Maps are included. Some additional info: HP 01 – 10 are located on the centre axis an used targeting, see the odf. HP 92 – 95 are located at the Hangars. I am using them for my fighter squadron. ( Not included ) Should any problem arise with these stations, you can send me a PM on armadafleetcommand.com.
