[Wish] Ship Mod wishes

Post by jlehtone » Thu, 23. Apr 09, 18:07

Ship models, particularly from well known scifi/game series, seem to be a recurring question. And it seems that not all of the realized mods are listed in the [url=http://forum.egosoft.com/viewtopic.php?t=216690]TC Download Library[/url], which is (or at least should be) the obvious place to search first from.

Now, it is quite likely that maintaining a list like that of wishes is doomed to fail and shall fall to the depths of the forum, lets try. Ideally, this list should never exist.

Edit: Originally I had word "request" on topic title and within text above. But that spreads IMHO wrong attitude. Creation of 3D models for ships is no easy task. It is way too arrogant to request that from others. Hence the use of the other word. Those, who for one reason or other are unable to themselves do the modeling, have humbly wished that someone would be able and willing to create something. But rather than wishing, the energy IMHO would pay better off by helping those that do attempt to mod (or script).

The list below may not be complete, for you all know how easy it is to find old, sunken threads.

Wishlist

[2008-11-30] Eve Online ships? (and 2009-04-25 and 2009-05-03)
[2008-12-12] Star Trek ships?
[2009-04-19] Star Wars ships?
[2009-04-21] Stargate ships?
[2009-04-23] Firefly/Serenity ships?
[2009-04-23] Babylon 5 ships? -- some exist and WIP
[2009-04-24] Wing Commander ships?
[2009-04-24] X3TC models tweaked
[2009-04-24] Ships from X-universe lore
[2009-04-26] Andromeda ships?
[2009-04-27] Ships from previous X-games? -- X2 WIP

Some ship mods do exist, even though they have not been listed in [url=http://forum.egosoft.com/viewtopic.php?t=216690]TC Download Library[/url]. Why? That you should ask from the mod authors.
Darkfire1 gathered (2009-02-16) a list of some existing ships.

I'm sure the Star Wars ship mod will also be requested.

There are none currently that I have seen (and I have been looking). One X3R SW mod author is working on a TC port and I am hoping for a release soon :) I might try to convert some ships as well (if I get permission).

AtomicDryad made a m1 modification on deadlyDA's omega destroyer (from babylon 5) for X3:R, DeadlyDA made more B5 ships that I would love to see transfered into TC.

Personally, i would LOVE to see Wing Commander ships, particularly those of the Kilrathi war/Black Lance Incident era, not that 1999 movie junk. I know there were some done in the past, but from what i remember, they weren't the best quality. Plenty of WC ship models available at the WC CIC.

Just as an observation, down the track I intent to try and merge all the ship mods into one, with my Merge Mod project.

As yet, I'm on hold waiting for a new computer, and then its a matter of mods becoming stable enough to use. The Merge mod is in the sticky, but isnt yet v2 compatible.

I want to modify the Split Elephant to be more bulky and do some small changes to the Split M2 to differ it from the M1.

Also thinking about changing the Argon M2 somewhat.

It is my "wish" to change these myself but I would appreciate some help and info on how to go about it.

I am using blender to do the 3D work.

I have looked through the tutorials somewhat but there is not a specific one about how to import (if it is at all possible) X3TC ships into a program. That's the info and help I need.

Then ofcourse there is the question about possible release as I will be using Egosoft models.

Any help will be apriciated.

Cheers.

I wish we coud have nicely modeled star trek shuttle ships that are also well balanced in the game and have a first person cockpit too.

Would make a great addition to the rubber dinghy/ runabout script for M2 ships.

Tbh i'd rather have less addon ships (ie only one) but with more details and a first person cockpit.

Hi, I would like to see if somebody would have a go at creating the split prototype destroyer that is described in the sector description for Patriarch's Retreat.

Then maybe a scripter could create a mission where the player has to scan asteroids in said sector to find a hidden blueprint for this ship and then build it in the PHQ.

I wish that someone would make models for the boron ships that egosoft left unfinished, the pike m4+ and the marlin m8.

Personally, I would love to see an Eve overhaul.

Turn the Paranid into Amarr
Turn the Teladi into Caldari
Turn the Split into Minmatar
Turn the Argon into Gallente
And just remove the Boron completely :D
Turn the Khaak/Yaki/Xenon/Pirates into the pirate factions

I actually have this all ridiculously thought out including the details, but I haven't the skill nor time to do it myself.
