i use 3DS Max 4

heres an updated picture..a tiny bit more detailed with the "air intakes?" in the front and the spikes...im asuming the spikes are for taking "shock" out of electrical blasts that hit the ship or lightning storms or something.....

What evidence is there to support that? Why couldn't he just be modelling the ship for the hell of it?

02-01-2003, 12:38 PM

darn...well hopefully i can find someone to uvwmap this

02-01-2003, 01:24 PM

oh really?...do u have MSN or AIM so we can talk?...


02-01-2003, 02:52 PM
No I don't have any IM's. Basically what I am saying is I could UV map it and make a skin, only if someone else were to UV map it it would be alot better.

oh alright...well ill keep searching for a uvwmapper...if i can't find anyone would u be willing to?

02-01-2003, 03:16 PM

Umm....is this project still alive? Or is it just like the Samus skin thread....no one posts but they're still working on it?

03-21-2004, 03:47 AM

The ship looks good, but is it for academy? Or is it for the game you played?

03-21-2004, 05:15 PM
academy wasn't even announced when he started it. -_-
