I thought I'd post some shots of the new SODs I converted today. See what you think.

Well, the Missouri, pIH and Preax are pretty low (1137 for the Missouri, somewhere in the region of 600 for the Preax and pIH) and okay so the Akula is a little high (3000 odd) but in all fareness, you wont use that many of them, and with the likes of fleet ops around, people can clearly handle higher poly models. That said, I could apply a detriangulate to it, see what happens eh?

EDIT: Applied detriangulate as much as I could, reduced the poly from 3800 to 2100 with no noticeable different in mesh detail. Verrrrry handy tool.

Just completed the conversion of the SFC II Federation Freighter (virtually the same as the KA Clydesdale, just the bridge is different, and SFC models are easier to convert)

I won't convert any further models this evening, i shall work on getting the Klingon special weapons working, along with the mobile base and the ----------CLASSIFIED--------------- ;) hehe have to wait for that one, so sure its probably been done before, but hey its fitting for the era and the story, and its different to your usual Klingon ships.

EDIT 2: See?



Can anyone see a difference? nearly 2000 Polys less, and no visible difference
