Re: My Space 1999 homage to the Eagle transporter [WIP]

This is what it looks like in-game at the moment. http://s29.postimg.org/3zdzib91z/oogle01.jpg There is a warning about shipyard.plist not containing an "oogle_transporter" corresponding key in shipdata,plist. The reason is that shipdata.plist has currently only an "oogle_transporter-player" key in...

Re: My Space 1999 homage to the Eagle transporter [WIP]

Just not yet. i have also started in the daunting task of the dreaded .plist files for...

Re: My Space 1999 homage to the Eagle transporter [WIP]

Re: My Space 1999 homage to the Eagle transporter [WIP]

Nice progress! You must use png format due to jpg is not processed by Oolite. You can make your ship in three way. 1. You make everything into one 3D object (you can use more texture files in this case also). 2. You make the parts of your ship into more separated objects and concatenate these in sh...

Re: My Space 1999 homage to the Eagle transporter [WIP]

...still didnt get a diffuse just a Cargo Pod_auv.jpg. The naming system does seem complicated (even to me) as different people seem to refer to the same thing by different names. If there is a 'correct' naming system or convention, I don't know what it is. I'm not a trained artist, just self-taugh...

Re: My Space 1999 homage to the Eagle transporter [WIP]

I need help! Thats a given, but specifically i need help with UV mapping and then colouring the model. Most tutorials i have seen just skim over this bit or are from much older versions of Wings 3D that they simply dont work. So here is the present progress i have. The model is separated into 13 par...
