I'm back guys - sorry!!!!!!! I've been gone for a while, but I'm now the head contact for the ship team. MTattersall moved to a different project so now it's all me.
I've got some really cool stuff coming soon. I'll have a gander through this thread soon and get back in touch with all of you - I apologize for my absence.
Naaaaah, don't apologize, I'm just happy you're back. We've all missed you. Welcome back! I'm so happy you're here I won't even mention two of the interesting model suggestion/debates that simmered in your absence...at least until later this week.
please please, fix the defiant, we have it super imposed to show you whats wrong, nothing major, move the naceles back (see the photos we put up) and the angle of the nose has to be tilted downward, also see photo, not hard right? I think you mistakenly think its down enough looking at it from underneath where the nose connects to the body where it has that nice indent, thats fine and all, but the nose it self needs angling down wards, it wont be defiant, till at least the model is correct, dont worry about any niggling lighting or other texture stuff, the model just needs to be right
actually i think before you modify the defiant or move the nacelles back a bit, you should super impose this latest image over the studio model.
The last one super imposed may not have been taken from a direct side view, the ship may have been either turned slightly facing right, therefore showing off more of the aft section to be longer, and the nacelles to be more forward than they are.
looking at this picture i took, after going to a top down view, and then rotating t he camera down while keeping the facing to ensure no movement, it looks more like the studio model in terms of naccelle placement and scale.
However, the nose piece is still glaringly high and that does not been to be angled down, however you look at it, but im not so sure about the naccelle issue.
