October Update:

Welcome to the October update for X32I - Redemption, we felt the previous month's update didn't reflect the quality of the work put into the models. So Ben one of our highly talented modellers really got down to some hard work and remade the wasp model entirely from scratch, and then also went and worked on the Thunderbird.

Thunderbird WIP:

Original Design: Richard Jeferies
Latest Design: TheMightySpud
Interior Cockpit: Bernhard Raml
Optimisation/Unwrapping/Smoothing groups: Ben Rymill

The Thunderbird is a prototype ship created by the United Earth Alliance's greatest minds. The ship is the one the player will fly in throughout the game. The Thunderbird is module based and can be customised by its pilots with new parts to further upgrade its potential as a frontline ship.

Note:

After last months update, we felt the quality of the media didn't reflect the quality of the model so apon further optimisations by Ben Rymill we have got to a stage where the model is now a final design, and is now ready for texturing and rigging properly in-game.

Hornet WIP:

Model by: Ben Rymill

The Hornet is the wasps bigger brother, produced by the same corporation for the Terran Chance. The Hornet is a heavy duty fighter capable of matching many of the UEA heavy ships out there. The length of the wings is adjustable and can extend to extend the sensor's ability at the cost of exposing sensitive hardware.

Note:

The wasp you saw in last month's update is going to look similar to this model however less bulky, as it's emphasis is purely on speed, and it's ability to scout area's and then send information back to HQ. The wasp you saw in last month's update is now 100% different and as you can see by the Hornet is already miles above the previous month's version.

I'm loving the thunderbird, but the hornet leaves a lot to be desired IMHO.
