    Update, Sept 7, 2004:
    Fixed some problems with Tux and the 104: Point of view was misaligned slightly and there were few faces with incorrect number of triangles.

    Well, since my favourite servers are presently down, I thought I’d take the time to post a “tank” I’ve been working on – a CF-104 Starfighter.

    I started working on this a couple days ago – working from a more complex model (about 10^3 times as many triangles) – pretty much wound up remaking most of the plane. It took me forever to try to decimate the mesh to a reasonable number of triangles, got it down to 1159. I’m not 100% happy with it, but it’s not too bad.

    To install: Unzip the file such that the CF-104 directory is under your data/tanks/ directory, and then add the following to your data/tanks.xml file:



    CF-104
    High Def
    CF-104/104.txt

    Any comments or criticisms are welcome, and appreciated!

    Cheers!

    Wow, cbx. There’s only one word to describe that:

    HOOAH!!

    Nice Job.

    You take requests on maybe….. classic cars? 😉

    Thanks Steve! 🙂

    Classic cars – interesting idea. Hmmm. I like the idea!
    Any particular model in mind?

    I’m favorable to Chevelles, myself. But a classic camaro, vette or mudstain would be nice. 😀

    Perhaps the big-block blown Charger from The Fast and the Furious would be cool. Have the weapons firing from the scoop.

    Uh, yeah. 😕

    ach, bastid, this model kicked my Death tank off the first group of tanks! I gotta scroll up a line to get it now. grr. grr, I say.

    as for requests, how about that floating, triwling, question mark? The one in the lower left corner of the tank selection screen? Everytime I try to select it, I get some random tank…

    Ebonite, You have the same problem with the “?”, too? 😉

    I started working on a ’67 Mustang – I had forgotten how much I hate modelling cars! lol

    Maybe I’ll do the ? first – sounds a bit more like my speed. 😉

    Ewwwww, mustang? Hmmm, will they blow up on their own? 😉

    Since I know next to nothing about 3D modeling, I’d have no clue as to the work that might go into it.

    Actually, the “?” sounds very interesting.

    BUT A MUSTANG?????? 😯

    Well, the Mustang’s a bit of a bust for now – however, I have another new one: Tux!

    Install as per the instructions for the 104, edit data/tanks.xml:

    Cheers!

    No big deal on the cars. It was just something that I threw out there at the end of a long day. Don’t mind me. 🙄

    Wow! Nice work on the penguin. Once i get home from work I’ll give it a try to install.

    But don’t tell Shockwave. He may get a little miffed that I haven’t loaded his Tie fighter/jedi stuff, yet. 😉

    Keep them coming!!!!!

    BTW: Nice sig. I’ve been seeing that style pop up more and more. 😉
