3D Modeling Ship / Base / Planet

Post by Invité on Sat 23 Mar - 19:58

Okay here it goes….

I would like to try and start to do Ship and base 3D modelling but would not know where to start.
I don`t know what software is required or witch is best, and have had no experience in it what so ever, but I am eager to learn and want to play my part with this Mod.

Any advice, tips or links to help I would be truly grateful.

Hi All

While I still have a huge amount to achieve on this mod, I too would like to know more about 3d Modelling if only to appreciate the skill required. I do wish to build a system that is a fun place to visit being full of humorous content but that is for later, not know.
So bring it on, any tuts greatly appreciated.

GUNNER

Hi there

I recommended this soft because it's free and open source:
Blender

And there are numerous sites on the internet with a lot of tuts for beginners

But...some don't like and prefer using 3D suites like 3DS Max (expensive !)
Any way, I think all these softs have about the same functionnalities.

The best is to ask on Lancers Reactors and / or on Starport and to know more, I suggest both of you to use the "search" button hehe (some says: google is your friend).
Sorry for not beeing more explicit, but modelling is far from beeing my main concern.

Many start with milkshape 3D. I tried that once, didn't work for me.

Or could try Matasque, also good software. I prefer to use the Autodesk Softwares. People in the field I want to specialize in work on Autodesk 3DS MAX and Autodesk Maya. You don't have to use 3DS MAX 2013, 2010 is pretty good. I prefer 2013 since I can do so much more with it.

Will be learning Maya later on though.

Also, Myr is right. You can use Google or ask on the Lancer's Reactor. They're pretty good when it comes to this stuff. Smile

I'll be honest with you in stating that Blender might be free but I've never been able to understand the dammed thing. GMax and Milkshape I understand though.

What models do you guys need?
What about info cards? My English grammar is very good and I have some ideas I could offer. I'm sure you probably need lots to be updated.

I am on top of info cards and rumours but we have a lot more to do. I am sure that you understand that all must be done inline with the current and new story's.
There is a list called "bases needing write ups" on the forum which Myrdhin publishes but the last list is up todate. When you get the Mod running look at Liberty for base rewrites. Liberty is being left behind a bit in The Threat but I am sure that you have already seen paper works on the forum

Regards

Gunner

Yeeah, as said Gunner, we have to consider the new story line and all rumours + neural net news (for each base) have to be reviewed in the Vanilla world.
Gunner already did a fantastic job, but there is a lot more to do. For example, some ships don't have an infocard, really sorry but even if I made the most of them, i run out of imagination. If you are interrested, i can send you the ship specs. Smile

And yes, the base listed here are not up to date and I have to check all.

Would be great if you guys can send me info or maybe create a thread here on the forum. Just a list of stuff I can work on.
I can write and upload as I finish them
