here is the link to the pic... sorry about it being geocities, but its all I got right now...

This is FAR from finished. The current texture is just a test. When time permits I hope to make a detailed texture.

Couldnt find schematics, but found enough pics from different veiws to start work on it. I have been trying to adjust the piramid, its dimensions look a bit different in each of the pics I have so I will need to go back and watch a few episodes to see the right dimensions... (Piramid is the easiest to fix fortunately!!!)
I make all my ships for A1. (partly because I never was that good with lightmaps and my video card does not support bitmaps, so I figured I might as well make them A1 so they could be compatible with both games)
Does anyone know what the standard weapons of this class of ship are and where the hardpoints should be placed?

I am going to have to make all my textures from scratch. With the help of Rodglas's link, I will finaly be able to start making textures. The pics there will help me figure out the details I have been missing.
Got a question though... Is the Cheops an upgrade of the Ha'tak? I have seen two slightly similar mother ship types but one has different details on top side and the piramid looked lower on one. Just curious...
The current texture I am using on the mesh is more of a "place holder" of sorts until I come up with something far more detailed.

Ok, in the series, motherships are rather generally named as hataks, so a theory my friends and I developed, after a few arguments, is that hatak is a general term for mothership, not a specific class name, so technically all motherships are Hatak, at least by our reckoning.

We also speculated about the possibility of the central pyramid of a 'cheops' class ship being effectively a classic 'hatak' vessel, that could leave the superstructure in orbit.

Failing that, the cheops would be a brand new mothership, no more similar to the old hatak than Apophis's super-mothership is to a cheops.

I doubt the Gouald even use class names for their ships, hytak is probably just a general term for "pyramid" or "mother" ship.

The US military seems to have assigned the "Hytak-class" nickname to the regularly seen motherships as a way of identifying them. This isn't without president in the real world where the US military has nicknames for various Russian jets, vehicles and vessels that are treated as class labels.

As such I rather people male the distiction between the Pyramid used by Ra in SG the movie and the standard Hytak. If your going to call anything a Cheops class it should be Ra's ship IMHO.

LOL, no problem. I need all the input I can as it has been impossible to locate actual schematics for this ship type. I have to go by the various screen shots from different angles.
Just out of curiousity does anyone have any good top veiw pics of this ship? When I upgrade the texture I want to try to make it as accurate as possible.
I have started reading and found that Cheops may have just been a fan name for the ship. I will stick with the more common Hytak for now.
