Re: Ball Turrets

I've my ballturret model placed in Blender in a general file with all the the subentities and main hull. Then I made single files from this one. So the first ballturret has a quaternation of (0 0 0 1 0 0 0). After that I didn't found too many problems placing a second one.

Re: Ball Turrets

I'm in the same problem here. I've reused the same turret model i have in the Yasen, it worked pretty well in that ship so i imported the .obj file for the Lira model. I've the turret centered but it rotates to a weird arc when it's activated. :?:

Re: Converting to .dat

By the way I don't know how to test it in game (untextured would be fine). I used a tip from Simon B. Edit a standart savegame and search for this string: <key>ship_desc</key> <string>cobra3-player</string> Then change "cobra3-player" for " yourship -player" and save. Where yourship it's the name y...

Re: Show and Tell (new ships/ ships in progress)

I guess. I actually did start to build two different armadas with what is in that picture. I'm still working on the second, which uses the biggest as the mother or base ship, the ships aft and forward are destroyers, and the tiny ones are cruisers and fighters. I'm still trying to visualise a Battl...

Re: Blender 3d Modeling Tutorials

Select said polygon, veiw it from the side, hit U and choose project from veiw, then move it to the right place on your UV map. (cool ship by the way) I followed your advice and got a successful polygon projection. Now the problem is, I shall figure out how to make the texture from the beginning :s...

Re: Blender 3d Modeling Tutorials

I'm having some troubles with Bender I hope some of you might help me to solve. It happens when I'm using 'smart UV project' on big faces like those you can see in the main hull of the ship below, in which that long side has only two polygons. http://farm8.staticflickr.com/7035/6714253099_7f7fbbc156...

Re: Shaders’ Outpost

if you're on a Windows PC, AMD have a really cool free program called Rendermonkey and i think there's something available for free from Apple if you're on a Mac (might be part of some sort of development suite of programs) No, I don`t :lol: . I will try with XCODE's OpenGL Shader Builder. It's the...

Re: Shaders’ Outpost

Many Thankx, Ahruman, Thargoid and Griff.

I took the vortex.oxp's shaders and they worked pretty well in the engines of my OXP. Now that it works i'd start learning how IT really WORKS using Ahruman and Griff's code and try to make it on my own shaders for other effect.

Re: Shaders’ Outpost

I can have a go at updating the rocket shader example to work again this weekend and i'll try and write out a guide that explains how i'm doing this engine heat effect in the shaders in my shipset, it's not a very complex effect, just a matter of mixing some extra glowmaps onto the ship Griff. That...
