Okay... back from the weeklong stay in a caravan park.
Seeing as there was power down there, I took the trusty laptop and continued work on the Interceptor.

Before I post an update, first thing's first.

Tim, could you possibly email the vehicle to me? i would greatly appreciate it. pleeeze...ive waited so long.... wanna put it in my level....
Well, I haven't finished this new revised version, but if you want the old, unrevised one, I can send that one over. This one's reserved for the asteroids map.

Okay, now an update on the model.



First off, I got to thinking. Seeing as all of the online pics of the Interceptor I've seen online are blue, and that the TIE Bomber and Advance X1 in JKA are also blue, I thought I might make this one a slight shade of blue as well.

New mesh updates include some more detail at the brace section that juts out toward the front in the middle of the wings. One more update I want to apply is that TIE Fighter bit I stole and put on the side. It doesn't look very canon and I think I better make my own part to replace it.

I've also done some heavy texturing as well, having applied a generous amount of nurnies to the inside of the wings, and fixing up the color and shading on the new connecting parts.

At this point, my main concern is, do you think I should keep this thing blue?

thats a great looking model Tim, very nice details i wouldnt make it blue just because others are blue, just makes yours look less original. imo that shade looks less metalic, and more rubbery

sure, ill take the old version, as long as it works. (doesnt fire off to the leftor anything)

i think the blue looks great. all of the tie interceptors i have seen were blue like that.

Lol, no it doesn't fire off to the left. That was imyourfather's version.

Ok, I'll send that one over. Be warned though, you on a hotmail account it might not get accepted because it's a 1MB file and Hotmail only allows a max of 2MB. We'll see.





That's a pic of the Interceptor that's on starwars.com, and I just pulled out my severly degraded copy of ROTJ (Dang Videos, DVD all the way. ) and watched the last 20 minutes of it. If anything, I probably should be making this thing even more blue.

But then again, I don't have to stick to the movie guidelines. The TIE Fighters in ROTJ looked blue to me too (That or it was a really blurry interceptor) and just look at the color of Raven's TIE Fighter. I'll take a pic of it in-game with it's specular shader applied so you can see what it looks like in where it really counts.

Okay... normal TIEs are grey, Interceptors are definately blue. Forgive me for challenging your canon-ness Raven!

Hmm, perhaps, but they were the same color as that in the movie, and just to be sure, I contrasted their lighting to the Millenium Falcon's.

Does anyone have George Lucas' contact details by any chance? He's bound to know.

Wow! I like the sharpening on the Intercepter's texturing. It always makes good eyecandy.

Okay, I think I'm at the point where I've added so many details I don't want to touch it anymore in fear of wrecking it.

The wings are now fully made by me with no elements used from the original TIE fighter's wings. I've decided to keep it blue, even though I'd bet that that isn't canon, but the other Raven Imperial ships (bar Fighter) are blue and I think it adds a better tone to it.

Here it is. Be brutal:



I've sent this copy off to Khan in the hopes of it maybe being used in the Asteroids map, but so far, no word back.

Thanks Manquesa.

I can't make a comparison as I never got a good look as to what your interceptor model looks like. From the long shots I've seen in the Asteroids trailer, it looked pretty darn cool.

Thanks for telling Khan.
I just hope he'll give me some feedback soon...
