TMP Akula class released

Post by robert_defore »

Here are a few wireframes of the new TMP Akula I am currently working on.

EDIT: Here is the ship pack link, I have uploaded the new version here

On the poll just tell me which you would rather have modeled to update the Saladin to a refit with single nacelle or the Polaris which is similar and has dual nacelles.[/url]

Yes, Klingons and Romulans soon. I figure I can fly through the TMP ships as I already have the basic hull structural parts.

Ok posted my thoughts on this in another page. But on my next TMP vessel thought about doing a Saladin Refit based on another design , the TMP Constant or as is shown here called the Polaris.

link to the DITL.org page. The model is from a dominion wars battle scene. So she is cannon, and her hull markings show here to be a TMP TNG era commisioning.

Yes its there, I have her textured and here are some renders.
Sorry bout the low light and poor quality on the wire frames, I was in a hurry and didnt check them out before posting them.


And as a suprise , Here is the ship pack. And No I am not converting these from another game. The parts are original or remade. Here is tha TMP Akula ship pack link

Oh one thing i did notice is that the fin on the nacelles, as Anjel pointed out in another topic, should be present on the other side of the nacelle as well. It looks a bit funny from top view lol i hope you havent converted it yet

Yes I have but next week will be a fix the "alpha version" week. So enjoy these models and keep pointing out the errors for me to fix them. On the wings, do they belong on both sides or you mean the outside on both nacelles? Either way I will post the ship pack for the Akula in a new thread called TMP Ship Pack Update.

Hi Robert, don't wanna be a bad ass but your Akula Refit saucer seems small compared to the warp nacelles....it seems out of proportion....with the rework on your last ships, there is no pallette problems anymore.

That makes the Galaxy mod interesting particularly when you go up to level 13 or 14. Lot of new ships to fill the gaps.

Yes, I really have to figure out the deal with the saucer on that model. I have rescaled it in Max and changed the scale when doing BSP and HOT conversion. I still couldnt get it to look just right. I am however now confident that I discovered the Problem. I will post a new ship pack with a "a" version number on it so you will know when it is fixed.

EDIT: I really think I might be able to get a common palette I could use with all my TOS and TMP vessels. It would be difficult, but I discovered by accident I had used the TOS palette on my TMP Akula textures. Will see what we can do.
