however, it lacks polies in larger and more noticeable areas such as the chassis and wasted polies on unnoticed things like the inside of the barrel. Further more, because it has less polies, it looks more like a box than the ota gator.
I think I'm going to uv and texture it and put it in the game just so I'm familiar with the process, and then I'll go back and remodel. Thanks for the comments though, I really don't know what I'm doing, I just tried to conserve pollies and learn blender at the same time.
hmmm... i'd love to have some of these models for a Supcom TA mod... which i decided i'd start trying to work on seeing as the community has failed to do so far... its to the point where someone would rather have SC ported to Supcom than TA....
I meant putting the TA models into Supcom... not putting Supcom into Spring.... Besides, everybody knows that Atari has probably forgotten that they even own TA.
They wouldn't forget, the TA sourcecode is probably worth heck of a lot of money!
Key words there are source code- a computer program in its original programming language (as FORTRAN or C) before translation into object code usually by a compiler (webster def)
Last time I checked, the models aren't going to be in the original format and definitly aren't the computer program itself. That would be dlls and the exe. The scripts would be in lua rather than whatever TA uses. This is why things like UTA are fine and probably also why Spring hasn't been squashed.
And yes, i know the outrageous price for the rights to the TA source code. Every die hard TA fan does. Besides, you can find TA on abandonware sites now. Atari just buys games and sits on them. Everybody knows that.
Whoever Warlord Zsinj's friend is, he's very talented. The models are even to the OTA intro movie scale, and whatever they'd look like rendered, the concept art's as good as SupCom's.
I suppose that I'm correct in assuming that rendering even one of those models fully would involve a tremendous amount of effort? Can't even begin to imagine what would be involved for that 14 cannon Battleship. ~~
I'm comparing models to SupCom's, btw, because when you actually squint carefully enough to see its models, they're excellently detailed, but I've noticed that through some bizarre graphics decision on SupCom's part, all of their colors are muted. Great detail on modes, but the muted colors, very noticeable on terrain, tend to make it look like ass. Surprising, but it explains why I didn't like a lot of the look of SupCom when I first saw it, especially when most of what you see in that game's the color muted map.
