I am going so fast I forgot to post the download link.

By the way since these are remakes of already done models yes some only needed better conversion and small adjustments, so yes they can go very quick.

so here is link to federation fighter ship pack :wink:

The lighting effect was part of the texture. (it will not illuminate when not in direct light) and since model is from armada irc I could not tell you best way to do this but have seen other modellers use this effect to cover up the ship numbers from other games.

But I know lighting is possible, I have never attempted it. The reason I think it can be done is the vanilla feringi starbase has a spot light on the top. :wink:

I took a look at both

first adding lighting to a texture

Create-a-Spotlight

As for the Feringi spot light it was done with 6 - 4 point polygons

3 polygons at bottom solid white for light source. they used no mapping and white color was added in creator and used flat attributes. The other 3 polygons was in spot light shape 3 sided pyramid set to white color and transparent and used flat attributes also no mapping.

Changing color and transparency can be done by selecting each of the polygons in hierarchy view to edit properties in drawing tab.

My big question is how they did the flashing lights on DS9? 8O

looks fantastic, has a lot of detail in the mesh, and i´m always fascinated with holes between. Makes the conversion a lot harder, but it´s worth it.
