Re: MandoTech Industries, Inc.

I thank you most kindly for your generous words. You're right, I have lots of ideas........too many ideas. I've found myself twisting a ship into a knot (hey, I didn't think of that one), because I took a couple of steps I shouldn't have. You are very right about the time put into the JadeShadow. I ...

Re: MandoTech Industries, Inc.

The JadeShadow is basically finished. I just have to double check it, polish any little things I find wrong, and it should be ready. Here are a couple of pics.

Re: Blender 3d Modeling Tutorials

Did you make that avatar you use? That is cool. I've thought about reading some tutorials on how to make animations with Blender. Maybe I'll give it a shot sometime.

Re: Blender 3d Modeling Tutorials

Hmm, I like the way it's set up in 2.63. Guess I'm kind of a retro-grouch. I'll have to think about the newer versions some more. Thanks for the info, Staer9.

Re: Blender 3d Modeling Tutorials

Has anyone tried the newest version of Blender, which is 2.65? I could not get it to set up the way I had 2.63. I guess the modeling was about the same, though some very familiar controls were slightly changed. It was when I went to unwrap, and texture when I hit a wall. I mean that nearly literally...

Re: [RELEASE]MT2000Brachiator

LOL!! Don't tempt me to do something that really looks that way. Heck, I just put the monkey heads on the thing because Blender actually has them as a shape to add to the model, like a sphere, or cube. It was weird, but fun. :D

[RELEASE]MT2000Brachiator

The MT2000 Brachiator was built for monkeys. Well, okay....not really monkeys, per say, but for a race of beings that are a dead ringer for the terrestrial monkey. If you look closely at the front, where the forward laser emanates from, you will see that it is firing out of the mouth of a monkey hea...

[RELEASE]MTBattleCruisers

The MT1030Corvair, and the MT1035Corsair were two ships originally designed to be a part of the Mandotech fleet. The fleet idea is defunct. Resources, and the inability to sell the idea killed it in the end. Very few of these ships have been made, as is the case with most other ships intended for th...

Re: MandoTech Industries, Inc.

Great looking model Mandoman. I look forward to seeing how you develop this ship :-) Thanks Shipbuilder. I didn't really know what it looked like while reading the books, but it sounded intriguing. There seems to be a couple of variations on what the ship looks like, and I'm trying to build the one...

Re: MandoTech Industries, Inc.

Here is a ship I first encountered in the post Star Wars movies book series. The ship belonged to a character named Mara Jade, who originally was closely associated with Emperor Palpatine, but later converted to the Jedi order, and married Luke Skywalker. Anyway, this ship, and it's continued improv...

Re: MandoTech Industries, Inc.

cool screenshots mandoman, nice model & texture work too - they're really lighting nicely in game -no visible smoothing issues at all -great stuff! Do you think so? I've been applying smoothing, and quads to tries, and have seen marked improvement, but it seems to me that I still get the jagged edg...
