[RELEASE] Colonial Viper Mark 1 - V1.03

Post by Shipbuilder »

The GalTech Industries Corporation proudly announce the release of their first ship off their production lines - The Colonial Viper Mark 1 single seater fighter.

This oxp is based on the ship which featured in the original Battlestar Galactica film and series.

A wiki page detailing this ship is also available by following the link in my signature strip.

Love it! Almost sorry for the rule I applied to myself to not use ships from another 'galaxy' in my Ooniverse! :D

It does look fantastic. Just wondering though, if it is a single sweater with what looks like windows, how does it compare in size to other models?

It's certainly small and agile - the .dat gives: 18.862 x 12.451 x 30.000 - and it's a frisky ride!
I dreamed I saw the silver spaceships flying, in the yellow haze of the sun
There were children crying and colors flying, all around the chosen ones
All in a dream, all in a dream, the loading had begun
Flying Mother Nature's silver seed to a new home

Looks great. Is it all your own work, or has the model been taken from someplace else, such as a BG game?

As Maik says the size is approximately 19m x 12.5m x 30m (Other specifications as in the readme document).

I produced the actual model in Wings 3D, rendered in gimp and used Vim for the scripting (Oh and had some great advice from various members of the forum along the way !).

Just bought one, and iron-assed it straight away. Jumped into an Anarchy. Looks fantastic, but in combat it's really twitchy. Hard to get my laser onto the target. Might be because I'm used to fighting in my Python Class Cruiser though.

Please be aware that the latest version of this oxp is V1.02. V1.01 fixed a problem with the scan class and legal status while a tweak to the sub folder names in the .oxp folder in V1.02 should hopefully ensure comparability on non windows systems.

Maik - I wondered if you would be able to put this oxp on to the wiki (I intend to look into this at some stage but the wiki is something that I've not had a chance to get my head around yet).

Sure, I'm going to add it to the [wiki]OXP List[/wiki]. If you'd like a wiki page for it then please provide some input like a background story, or notable features, intended use etc. Once you have something just PM me for my email address.

Hi Maik - Thanks very much.

I'll have a read of the typical type of thing that is on other wiki pages and put something similar together for the Colonial Viper Mark 1 and PM you.
