    two completely different ships
    and the first one isn't as important as the second. we are making a map together, and its a space map, and the second is more of tf2's style


    combine: trolling is where you post fake posts in order to start arguments, disagreements, just plain stupid posts, or other trouble

    Any help will be very helpful especially by the fact that no one really listens to me.

    You've given any prospective modellers almost no reason to do this. You've started out with 2 completely different reference images, no idea as to how it's going to look, or even anything as basic as dimensions. While it is possible to model this, you've got to give us SOMETHING to work with. provide some sketches, give a better description, or even just some dimensions and what it will be doing.

    Where will it be?
    What will it be doing?
    Is it going to be flying, attached to the death star, sitting somewhere or floating out in space?

    I'm sorry if I'm sounding really blunt here, but you're expecting everybody here to make you content worthy of a short film when you haven't even gotten past blocking out your map.

    excellent points. all of them.

    I was thinking of having one landed in a hanger, (or 2) big enough for at least 6 guys to be able to fit in. (theoretically, its not actually supposed to hold the people, just look like there is enough space inside to actually fit them)

    I am actually the Creator of the map, while combine has been helping me a whole lot with ideas, working on the map, and textures. (admittedly more that i asked for) I mean its great he/you (if combine is reading this post) wants to help, but mostly i just asked if he could help me set up the laser, which is still about 1/2 of the way done btw.....


    Anyways...back to the ship.

    I only want the second one made, not the first, because the second fits more with the tf2 style.

    To answer your questions:

    thats what i want it to look like.
    As far as dimensions...
    the hanger is approx. 1184lengthx1632widthx436heighth
    and i would like it to take up maybe 1/4 to 3/5 of that space.

    Description: It should be red or blue styled (i don't need grey, because it would either be in the red or blue hanger (maybe both)
    Banged up, like it took a lot of work to get it to the space station (because not until the late 60's did we go to the moon.)
    Honestly the style the pictures are in are a REALLY good interpretation as to what i want.

    Placement:
    As i said, in the hangers

    What will it be doing?
    Nothing, just sitting there, maybe with some smoke coming out the back with sparks, but ill add those in later of course

    and from the questions you said: I think i answered all of them, unless i missed something

    Thank you for filling in the blanks, I'm sure somebody will look into this soon, it looks pretty simple to model. Just on the topic of your swbf2 project, you might want to be a bit more conservative on your requests. Try to use this formula:

    Usability (both inside and outside the map)/10 + Necessity/10 * Ease of creation/10

    To assess whether it's worth putting a request in. This fits for all the points (although it might be lacking in how unique it is) so it's worth making, but just review all the other requests you've made thus far to make sure they fit these.

    Also, how will the rocket be held? Sitting by itself, or held up by surrounding supports?

    Well, whatever could be done, either a rough landing with no landing gear, (more of the tf2 style imo) or just sitting there with landing gear. Which protrudes from the craft itself.
