Ok, I'm going to do the taidan defender next. One question- has anyone done engines for the fighters(model or texture)? So i can use and they look the same(while saving some work).

One other thing there should be a database with what is already done.

As database there's the dropbox folder. It contains the two frigates so far.

Send me your e-mail, then I'll share access to the dropbox.
Btw, before making model:
Moddb.com

About defender: there will be two defenders, light and heavy, quite similar; also, their class will be "platforms". I don't know how it would be realized - must be practically checked, so you have two options, whethter to make exact remake of dfender, with actual size of it, or make a little artistical experiment with getting them to the size of V&H platforms. Any way is good, IMHO, though, mb, original would be more acceptable, "more canonical".

Email sent, but still there should be somewere that says that ship x,y are done, and that member x is doing ship y,f,z.

So there is no defender engines already done rigth??

Hi there all. Excellent work so far. I'm doing a similar project for the kushan, maybe we could join efforts and bring back the original homeworld to it's former graphic glory.

Hi. I believe at some point your projects just have to merge. I can't imagine it being the otherwise.

But first consider the fun and popularity caused by all those comments like "hey, JKberna, have you contacted the Taiidani project team? They do the exact same thing but with Taiidans!"
Also after some time it would shape up which one of these projects has better management, that would point at who's in better position to manage the merged project.
Also don't underestimate the power of competition, that's really a very efficient motivation engine. You two sides could throw your progress pictures at each other and that would tease you to be faster and better.

But that's just me, for you people it's maybe about strength in unity.
And what does AmDDRed say about it all? Is he even up for merging or extending to Kushans as well?

Well, I don't wanna another one overweighted "Homeworld Universe" of "FXmod". Just wanted to gather people around idea of returning 3rd unfairly forgotten canonical race back to stage with quality of HW2. And so I don't want to mess with various little races, balancing them - just one.

Well, that's my point.

Talking about merging - let it be "no sex, just friends" )) As soon as I contact D`Sentinel, getting some beautiful scrsht from him, I'll post it to the HW2TP, also anouncing your "arrow" (just post its picture into your profile not to wander outside moddb). Yep, there's also RingLeader's salvette and TICF... This news post gonna be fruitty ))

What do you say about such scenario? Btw, I guess HW@ team would be very interested in your work. Of course, IMHO, they got too much into the fanfic, but still, they're going out of HWC story...

P.S.: Pouk, what about RingLeader's salvette? Is it good?

My goal is just about the graphics. I'm getting the hang of upgrading the old models with ease, so i will help with the taidan as well.
Something that would really help speed up the process is if someone could put all the small textures of a ship into just one larger image, i would do the rest. I'm posting the Hammer on the images section to example what can be done with a 13 year old texture.

Well, if you make a little manual how te get out these old textures and compile them in one, it would be very useful.

I've got tired working with them, I wanted freedom and so on. Also lots of useless discussions. I think I just need a break.
