Vio, so far so good. Just keep on working on it, and keep us updated!

Make one messed up as well. That way you could put some crashed ones in the ground, and a few others on trains. And have them fly around.

looks like your doing a pretty good job, I guess i might as well not bother with the one i started, you might as well have these ref pics i took of the toy snow speeder i still have at home.:D

Not too shabby...

J/K, looks good.

I believe that anyone who does not own the toy snowspeeder is not a true STAR WARS fan.

I guess that's just me, right? Yeah, thought so.

Nope, not just you. I have one too. Okay, maybe we're just weird.
Yeah, that's probably it...




:gungan: Mesa stupid!

VIO
06-19-2002, 04:50 AM
i have one too!

Grets Sirob
06-19-2002, 04:53 AM
lol

I guess true Star Wars fans do have snowspeeder toys.

Although, we're probably just special, as in, different (to put it nicely, lol)

http://www.thelair.dk3.com/

i textured them white rather the caulk but they are still just radiant camera pictures, also if anyone knows were i can get good textures for this that would be great im not to good with custon textures(they hate me)
thx input is always welcome

i had the jabba thing and death star, awing, xwing, scout speeder, and darth vader with helmet that comes of, o yeah and a rancor that can eat things!!
:manny:

//edit

Snow speeder is looking good. Good job! Can't wait to see it textured. :)

then again i prolly was 3 years old

cool

Wes Marrakesh
06-19-2002, 11:15 AM
well wait...what scale is your ewok village?

Grets Sirob
06-19-2002, 11:21 AM
Umm, guys, can we, you know, get back on topic here? This is about VIO's snowspeeder prefab. Not your ewok villages.
So, VIO, how's it coming?

accauly i ran into a prob with compileing and i had to delete most of it...but the good news is that im slowly add the pieces back in

Wes Marrakesh
06-19-2002, 10:40 PM
sorry about that, i got carried away...
the speeder looks(looked, whichever) very good.
I wish i could figure out the modelling program but i've still got to finish my map....

thx alot those are great i have one problem though i can'r get that rounded curve shape on the back part the the lasers

______
/
---------------
'''''''''''''''
\______

i can't make a rounded slope if i use a patch mesh the vertexs won't line up right to my other shape even if i move the vertexes around it won't line up right

simarilius
06-21-2002, 01:04 AM
if you mean you cant get it to line up with the front section of the gun (the barrel bit) then why not make the barrel a patch too? its the kind of place a patch would look very good with the smooth curve.

btw, anyone know what the deal is with texturing patch meshes? half of the surface propertie buttons dont work with my patches and its starting to bug the hell out of me.

VIO
06-21-2002, 01:06 AM
no not that the back part were the large circle thing shinks into a smaller circle thing, this is between those two support blocks on the wings

simarilius
06-21-2002, 01:24 AM
ok, i see the problem know, the only thing i can think of is to make all the bits between the two support blocks out of patches.
I've been having similar problems getting patches to match up with the surrounding brush mesh on my falcon, if you do find a solution, let me know, would be most useful.

(one thought that just occured to me, if the number of segments in the patch matched the number of faces on the brush then there would be the right number of vertices to be able to line it up properly, worth a try at least.)

VIO
06-21-2002, 01:41 AM
ok thx i'l se what i can do

If you're using gtkradiant then I believe you have to press shift+s for the patch mesh surface inspector.

And VIO, you might need to just add more patch points to your patch meshes, just insert rows and insert columns and decrease your grid size to 1 if necessary to get things lined up right. A lot of the work i've been doing with the Slave 1 has been using grid 1. Those patches are a pain in the @$$ sometimes.

VIO
06-22-2002, 04:13 AM
well i made the gun pieces out of cylinder and patch meshes
i'll have some screens up on this site

Hey vio!
Good game.
Anyway, I hope you get your textures, cause this models gonna be awsome, I may even add it to my hba level. If you get it out in time.

VIO, you might want to try what i'm doing for my Slave 1 prefab. I suck a making textures too, so I found this really nice model of the Slave 1 done in 3DSMax, so I downloaded it and got all the textures for that, then I contacted the guy who made the model and got permission from him to use his textures. I'm sure there's a snowspeeder model or 2 online somewhere, just do a search for one.

PainGod
06-25-2002, 12:44 AM
VIO,

Good job, man. As soon as I get done with the map I'm doing on the S.Saga I intend to build a Hoth map. I'll be using Antilles' ATAT prefab and would love to use this one too.

VIO

thx i watn to build a hoth map too, good luck on yours, me too for that matter

PainGod
06-25-2002, 04:35 AM
Well, you and I are already working S.S. together.... why don't we combine efforts and build Hoth? Has Volrath told you about the forum I created for us?

VIO
06-25-2002, 04:41 AM
no that would be great i'll work with you

Manquesa
06-26-2002, 10:14 AM

VIO
06-26-2002, 10:21 AM
im sry i've been taking a break, form the speeder but hey i just textured and finished the inside of the cocpit and i finished the whole patch mesh thing on the side

Jango_Fett91
06-26-2002, 01:40 PM
Hey you can make a Rebel Pilot in there So it looks like hes fixing it or driving it.

VIO
06-28-2002, 03:12 AM
hey i was think of that but...maybe i'll alter a model, anyway i textured and finished the inside of the cocpit i'll have some pits of that soon im still not sure how im going to texture it, becuase ireally can't make my own at least not good, i might be able to pull of the clean textues but not the scared crashes textures.

Before anyone comments on these, you should know that the texturing isn't finished yet. I'm still working on it, I have more that I need to make and a quite a bit of tweaking/aligning/positioning, etc still needs to be done.

Good deal. I'm nearly done with my map of SS lvl 3 and will be ramping Hoth up soon. I was just wondering about this prefab monday night.

Manquesa
07-18-2002, 05:28 AM
This should be done soon. I finished texturing it and sent if back to VIO. There is just one detail on a texture that I need to fix, but i'll get that to him today as well. Then VIO just needs to add his finishing touches and whatever else he needs to do to it. You all can expect to see the finished version soon, I think.

VIO

the speeder should be released by the weekend! so keep a look out, im just fininshing up some mapping details

Manquesa
07-18-2002, 11:05 AM
well, what do you guys think. This is my first real attempt at making textures. I think they turned out pretty well, although you may not be able to tell from the screenies, it's really best if you see them in game. I think VIO did an awesome job building the thing. I should hope to see this one being implemented in many peoples maps.

Grets Sirob
07-19-2002, 03:25 AM
Texturing is way beyond my abilities...

Looks amazing though!
I think I'll implement it in my map if conditions are agreeable.

Something looks a bit strange with the wing textures though, don't know what happened, i'll have to ask VIO about that.

Get it at www.jedioutcastmaps.com

winner_rex
08-01-2002, 04:38 PM
It looks good, but when I opened it up it looked like it was not caulked...prove me wrong, because the speeder is very complex, and think of all the unneccessary faces it could be drawing!

Manquesa
08-01-2002, 04:45 PM
It should be caulked. Just select a brush and move it out of the way to look at the other faces of it if you want.

VIO
08-01-2002, 10:35 PM
by heaven and hell it should be caulked! (i caulked first) i will open it up right now and check

08-01-2002, 10:49 PM
jes' checkin... but it did seem like a lot was uncaulked, eg the back grille and so on
