ztonzy, you asked me a week or so ago about my spaceship animation that was on blender.nl while we were talkin in BlenderChat.

I was not sure if you got the link, or got it downloaded, so here it is again, just in case:

http://bgdm0.tripod.com/starfighter2.avi

Right click and “save as”. This is Divx codec avi.

If anyone else wants to comment, go ahead. I am sure most of you remember it anyway :smiley:

The odd motion at the start was an attempt to make it do a turn, but the keyframe came out all wrong, and I never corrected it.

Hope you like it ztonzy!

I KNOW THAT SONG!
Nice modeling job. Anyway, first thing I noticed was… “Is winamp running or something?” Then I realized it was the video.
Noise Unit - uh Bahnoff?

Thanks guys!

Yeah, that was mine. Maybe revamp it after I get my bot doen and animated. Still workin on it, but not a whole lot lately. Too much going on at work. Will be back at it in a couple of weeks with an update.

Thanks. All done by myself in photoshop for the texturing. No uvmapping either. I tried the capsule umwrap script form, (can’t remember who at the moment), and then pasted on as a regular texture image. Came out not bad, but next time I will UV map it.

Hyperspace jump. hmmm… Was it always said that you should not do a hyperspace jump while in a star system? :wink: Guess I will have to remove the planet and redo it.

I was actually thinking about redoing this with a landscape and a sort of home base type thing and have it come in and do a landing or something.

dependes what sci-fi world you are in LOL,
like Star Trek or Star Wars, or why not Babylon 5,
they’ve got jumpgates :wink: (in Bab5) , and they are
pretty close to the surrounding planets !!

if I were you, I would copy the idea of jumpgates
from Bab 5, but maybe with your own design…
but I also like both Star Wars/Trek’s jumps,
especially SW’s from the cabin inside…

good luck !!

wow

a very cool looking model, impressive
for the animation
i think the ship should actually be moving forward
otherwise the small rotations the plane makes in the movie don’t really
make sense

besides that, pretty cool, i’d like to see a bigger animation of that,
you know what i mean, a pack of these, spacestations, the cool stuff
