And a small preview of the shipset!

I'm curious as to what everyone thinks of the alternate (perspective) Station views as opposed to the normal top down view. I figured since stations dont move, it helps to separate them from the ships in addition to making them much more visually appealing.

Yep IMO stations veiwed from above generally suck. It may be more realistic but realism be damned so long as they look cool.

Hehe, well theres over 30 ships and stations included... So to put them up in a decent size would take a whole pages worth of posts

thumbs up for the tilted view of the stations, looks > realism in this case

adds a little 3d to the otherwise a bit to much 2d...

3d perspective for the station is just awesome, and there is nothing unrealistic about it, in fact it would be more unrealistic to have every single object in a solar system be on the exact same angle, right? Keep it up!! :)

One thing though, the ships themselves seem a bit dark and un-shaded. Or rather, not lit up.

I'm still figuring out how to do the textures right. They get extracted from the game in one file which then has to be separated in photoshop manually... Then you have to apply them in a special way inside max based on the numbers in another file.. takes a lot of time. So what you have here is just the base texture without any extras like normal maps and glows and such. Doing all the little extras will take a LOT of time to finish on all the models, but it will get done eventually.

Also, it is impossible to get all the objects facing the same angle as the game seems to rotate stations randomly when they are built. I never even noticed it did this till I put in the perspective stations.

Ok, this is what theyll look like if I take the time to extract all the textures correctly, fix the lighting, and apply everything correctly on the model. Takes forever to do though. I'm doing this with all the Minmatar ships so it probably wont be done until Friday or so.

And here you have the Cyclone:

I wonder how the ships would look like in the 3d/isometric perspective that you used for the stations...

Hehe, I imagine it would look like very very ugly on ships. With all the turning and such it definitely wouldnt look right at all.

I'm almost finished with minmatar now. Heres a preview of the Firetail with textures corrected and all the proper glows added:

Right now I'm releasing the shipsets without any extras added at all so that modders can use them and add engine trails/lights however they prefer. If I were to include engine trails and lights in these releases then modders would be stuck with them however I made them. I feel that a "base" set of ship graphics is more useful to the modding community.

good point, i would add them myself, not so hard but the problem is that i cant open all ur ship files (tried with paint, photoshop cs4 and some other freeware i got), i get an error "file either damaged or the format is not supported" (something like that anyways) so adding the engine trails becomes impossible.

EDIT: actually, paint wont open ANY of your ships while photoshop opens some of em and the rest i get that error

I'm not surprised that paint wont open them (and mspaint does not handle .png correctly anyway). Photoshop should though. I have photoshop cs2 and it opens all of them fine.

@code99: cs2-4 should open any .png file; are you sure you are oepning them with PS and not with a side tools like ImageReady?
