Amazing. Are the gun ports always going to be open on the models? I don't see that being a major factor if they're always open but could make things really interesting approaching a ship and you can't exactly count all the ports.

It's a really nice model. Can't wait to see it in-game.

Do you actually bake down these models onto a low poly or do you just clean up the highpoly and use that? Because damn, those models have a lot of polygons! However, they do need them!

This particular vessel was built from a lower poly model i built for use in the storm engine mods, with additional detail added to the low-poly version. however, most vessels will be built from scratch. Or are you talking about LOD?

Thanks for the comments guys, glad you like it! I've been working on the interior as well as some improvements on the exterior for quite awhile now, and they are nearly complete, so you can expect an update relatively soon!

Well done, Cap'in. I especially like the detail on that transom. I'm curious, what software are you modeling these ships with?
