New Macronesian subs and FX

Here are some totaly new designs I came up with for the Macronesian side:



Here is the subfighter carrier with damage emitters.
It has standard steam emitters for life support hits,
I have created "underwater smoke" fx for engine hits and have loaned use of the "deadguy" emitters for crew hits.

Wow! Color me impressed. :D

Those turned out really well. I'm definately beginning to see a clear-cut design ethic here. It's not entirely fitting with the Dragna, but I like it a lot. It's got that evil and menacing feeling going along perfectly. I particularly like your use of a ventral fin on the carrier

I love the texture work. Is that supposed to be a bioskin or some kind of reactive plating? (I believe Ford mentions that seaQuest also had reactive plating under the bio-skin...)

Got any names for these suckers?

The damage effects are looking really good, too.

I'm going to send you some Mac ships I've been working on so you can texture them and add your sprites.

Rod.

@DGWilliams: I am looking for suggestions for names...
I have only seen a few episodes of seaquest, and that was a long time ago.
...So honestly, I am just improvising from what little information I have seen. I based the textures on what I saw on the Macronesian subs in the size comparison chart in another thread...
Thanks for the input!
@Rodglas: Definitely, I can do that. I also need you to resend the other stuff but in .3ds format, my max cant read the newer versions of .max format you sent.
