CAX Redux...

Postby Kt'Hyla » Sun Apr 29, 2007 9:00 pm

After having not done anything with the high-rez CAX for a year now, I went back to it to start fleshing it out a bit more. I'm removing as much mapping as I possibly can, converting as much detail into mesh as possible. I'll post more detailed shots as I get more sections of the ship complete.

One big help in building the detail is that I can export the original CorelDraw files to DXF, then import them directly into LW as a mesh to use as templates. For instance, the glow panels on the wings appear here exactly as they are as on the KA version, since I was able to use the same files.

To preemptively answer an upcoming question: I don't know where I'm going with this, or if I'll ever get around to building any high-rez adversarial ships. If anything, I'll probably start mucking with the CAX drones next.

This render is a radiosity shot, took a little over 39 minutes. In the case of this shot I've found it's only subtly better looking than regular raytrace renders, of which takes under 2 minutes for this scene. :rolleyes:

If that's the sperm, I'd love to see the docking port.
