Re: Blender 3d Modeling Tutorials

Did you make that avatar you use? sadly no, I just cropped a GIF that I found on the internet and made it forum suitable, I recon that I probably could make an avatar like that... /offtopic/ I use blender to make stuff like this most of the time: http://preview.turbosquid.com/Preview/2012/04/11__05...

Re: Blender 3d Modeling Tutorials

Hmm, I like the way it's set up in 2.63. Guess I'm kind of a retro-grouch. I'll have to think about the newer versions some more. Thanks for the info, Staer9. If you've got used to something it makes far more sense to stick with it, in terms of usefulness in shipmaking the newer builds offer no rea...

Re: Blender 3d Modeling Tutorials

you can hit "g" to free-transform, that should also work on the unwrap panel after you install it can should be able to click "use old settings" (or something like that) personally I use blender 2.69 (newest from their site http://www.blender.org/download/ ) although rumor has it that a new version ...

Re: [Release] Staer9's Shipset

Lovely work on that ship model and texture Staer9! I realised it's only half done but i really like the contrast between the green, highly detailed areas and the greyer flat panelling, are you going to keep this in the final design? i just wonder if it might get too busy if you detail it all to the...

Re: [Release] Staer9's Shipset

Well, could be a while... hopefully not too long though :roll: I'm taking my time on the cat texture this time - actually trying to make it look vaguely griff-ish. here's a sneak peak: http://i.imgur.com/9O652bp.png I'm currently just working on the panels, then I'll make the look like metal, then I...

Re: [Release] Staer9's Shipset

Hey S9... back in your workshop, cutting and welding again? Well, I'm trying to get back into shipbuilding, this seemed like an interesting exercise to see if I still can. I should probably add some more greebles, pipes and panels to the cat, but I've just got to be careful not to upstage myself to...

Re: [Release] Staer9's Shipset

Now, if only I were any good at creating textures from scratch... the Cat needs work. Anyone care to have a go? I've also re-introduced a Monitor II, only making it blue and shinier than the regular Monitor. Obviously when I get round to doing random colouring, it means the ships will look mostly a...

I'm Back!

Well everyone, After being away for quite a while it's time to get back to good old Oolite and indeed making more ships :D My shipset needs a bit of work and with over 1000 downloads now I think I should give it a bit of love back I just thought I'd let everyone know that I'm back and ready to make ...

Re: Blender 3d Modeling Tutorials

to me it looks like an extra object, try going in object mode, selecting it, and deleting it.
sometimes artifacts like this are left after some separation and smoothing of areas (which sounds like what you did).

Re: [Release] Amphisbaena fka Copperhead (ship)

might want to be a bit careful with "ace_ship" names, as far as I'm aware Ace/56 used them for his ships, so people who have both installed may come across some problems.

aside from that it's a great looking ship, nice work

Re: Blender 3d Modeling Tutorials

I knocked the ship up in about 5 minutes to use simply as a demonstration, obviously seeing as you like it I can have a go at tidying it up a bit then releasing it. I've mostly been working on conceptual vehicle design for my portfolio at the moment so it was nice to make a ship again, seeing as it'...

Re: Blender 3d Modeling Tutorials

Time for a new tutorial methinks: Ambient Occlusion Baking After playing around with some AAA game engines I noticed that they have something that Oolite does not have (well, actually they have many things Oolite does not have, mainly because Oolite does not need it). A thing called "Ambient Occlusi...

Re: 3D Oolite

or of course you have anaglyphic 3d (red-blue),

as I don't have a 3d monitor I often use it to play games like skyrim (where snow looks incredible) I must admit that I havn't tried it with oolite,
I shall do that now...

*edit* nope... iZ3d doesn't work with oolite

Re: [Release] Staer9's Shipset

The iguana has no weapons defined because it uses two side mounted lasers that each have weapons defined in their own entities, Unfortunately, those entities aren't themselves defined anywhere in the shipdata.plist, for the Iguana. (If you also have Neolite Companion installed, they are defined in ...
