Post Re: Proper Massifs?
Should be able to finish this up today, had a slight issue with making it rotate seamlessly from the center due to a miscalculation on the triple connector... I was like "WTF isn't it rotating seamlessly......." then i realized the connectors were 2 different lengths. A real "Duh" moment.

Anyways, should finish this today.

Don't make it rotate using an animating model. Make it in pieces and let me rotate it in code like I do with the Bulk Traders. It's so much more flexible and efficient.

I saw your previous post, I was rotating it for testing purposes; making sure it would rotate smoothly when you go to do it in code.

This gives a brief rundown of texture mapping.

Alrighty then, finally finished up this model. Wasn't too sure what else I could do on the front or back that didn't look weird (i tried a few different things). So unless there are any issues with this model, this will be the final version.

About 4200 polys at this point.

It's 2 parts, just the front sphere with that attachment piece, then the rest is all one object. I've centered the pivot point, but I think you have to do that in the xml anyways. It shares the same 1k texture, efficiency ftw.

Front:

Back:

You could double the texture as a slight bump map if you wanted, maybe .1, and it would look pretty solid. Not sure how you guys manage environment maps either, but i'll make a glowmap for it once I can see it in-game.

And did anyone stop to think about Massif III? It'll end up with about 6000 poly's at this rate.

I added a "tail", but it looked really odd.

It also looks odd without one.

Did you have 4 separate "tails" arranged in a square? Or was it just two?

I'm pretty sure that is the Massif 3 model and without the tail it looks like a more rounded version of the bulk trader! The tail defines it!

Here I was thinking 3 would be the logical number...
