"Ship bits" download

hi, i have recently been looking around for a download wich gives a few bits for universal use on spaceships. i have found some but they seem to not be for blender, so i (based on my life motto; if you want somthing done, do it yourself) so i spent some time designing and modelling some universal bits for a ship, there are only a few and they are not that brilliant, but you are free to use them and modify them as much as you like and use in any of your ships. thanks! P.S how do i put the blender file up so other people can use it?


Wow! That’s a great idea! I can’t wait for them to go up.

very good idea! you can use http://uploader.polorix.net to upload files.

Wow! This sounds like a great idea! Perhaps you should repost this form under “News and Dicutions” because that seems like a more apropreate place for it. If you ever get that .blend file posted, so that I can get an idea of what you mean by “Ship bits”, then I would be glad to help you on this progect!

these are the renders of the ship bits… (and remember, you are free to use them, modify them and snip them up any way and as much as you want) there are lots more bits on the way.
Edit: i Used that uploader.polarix thingy and i managed to upload the download (it works, HOORAY!) here is the link (but remember you have to be logged in to download this file from the page, so just register and find me in the members list and download the file) http://uploader.polorix.net/browse.php?page=17 (please tell me if it dosent work, just in case)


we should all make greeble packs and make a community library!:smiley:

lol, that would be fun!!! :yes:

Oh and i have just uploaded the second “ship bits” file for download on polarix.uploader thingy. just click the link in my previous post to go there (and remember, you have to register before you can download!!)

you don’t have to register to download, only to upload.

P.S. you can also directly link to the files in you posts, when you upload just check “create image tags” and copy the text that shows up only without the “img” things at the beginning and end and insert that as a hyperlink in your post.

I’ve downloaded the files and I think that you did a good job!:yes: Although I noticed that you like to use the discombobulater script. As a word of warning, while it gives an object a very cool and complex look, It’s also quite easy for any Blender user to recignise. And so I destroys the illusion of complexity.
That being said, I still love the idea. I think I’ll design some weapons and matterials.

ok thanks for the tip and yea weapons would be good for a “bits” pack, i am currently making some Particle explosions that people could use on space scenes and i am making ship connection and “repair” parts. and for the more organic ships i am designing power orbs (like fuel cells) :wink:

I like the power orbs idea. I’m also expirementing with some particles to make some convincing thruster flames.:wink: As for the weapons I’ve alredy made a fully rigged turret that can be rotated 360 degrees. I’ll try to post the file as soon as I have some more stuff made.
Also, I would like to invite more people to help with this. Espeacialy n00bs.

I’ve finished some basic ship materials along with a few thruster flames. You can download them here. Do tell me if something is wrong with the link.:stuck_out_tongue:

heres my contribution,


Hey Isidore, great ship. But I think you forget that this is called ship bits. Not ships. I suppose it’s okay though.

yea its kinda a bit… …bigger… then just a greeble pack, but most of it’s just greeble ‘panels’ stuck on a basic shape.

here’s the original wip thread http://blenderartists.org/forum/showthread.php?t=101829

Here’s another contrib,
