From the Mail:

This is the F/A-37 Talon from the movie Stealth. It is armed with missiles and a minigun. It can also do the whole swing-wing thing from the movie where the wings fold up and it can go faster or they can open up for combat. The missiles are made by draconis_sharp and I have his premission to use them.

Quote: "These things are fast and powerful, but unlike my previous models they are also low poly, I had 400 of them at once on my 1.47 ghz computer with 256 mb RAM, and since they are a fast strike aircraft you only reallly need a dozen of them."

so it won't override other missiles you have installed)

2. Open your gui_global.spr in the misc folder and scroll down to where is says

# Federation build buttons

copy this line right below the @reference=64 line

b_fa-37 gbfa37 0 0 64 64

Then Go

copy these line right below the @tmaterial=interface line

b_fa37combatspeed fa37combatspeed 0 0 64 64
b_fa37hyperspeed fa37hyperspeed 0 0 64 64

3. Then scroll down to # Federation reference wireframes under the lines:

now add

fa-37w1 wffa37 0 0 128 128

fa-37aw1 wffa37a 0 0 128 128

4. Open tech1.tt and fulltech.tt in the techtrees folder and add to each file

fa-37.odf 0
fa-37a.odf 0
fa37hyperspeed.odf 0
fa37combatspeed.odf 0

5. Next open a shipyard file and add

buildItemX = "fa-37"

where X is the next available number

Could you do an SA-43 Hammerhead??? From Space: Above and Beyond.
#2 MajorPayne 2007-01-09 00:32
Very good attempt and considering the poly count I would say that the only thing that lets this down is its not quite accurate (although pretty close) and the textures could use a more detail. Still gets an 8/10 from me.

excellent, I congratulate him tremendous person that is you, many congratulations for this noble work

note: I support the pattern of SA-43 Hammerhead...!!!

Wroking On The Hammerhead, although isa a tough ship, since I need to keep it low poly as well, I wish I could make better textures too. like Greator's X-301, they would have been perfect for this. Oh well
#5 Ronmcd1076 2007-01-15 03:13
Why would you have to keep in Low Polly? After all, It's a beautiful plane. Would be a shame to cut the looks on count of pollies.
#6 Admiral_Icehawk 2007-01-18 06:34
I kept it low poly because it is a small "ship" and when ships are small, people expect hundreds for them to be able to be used in the game
#7 ST_and_SW_Freak 2008-03-23 11:26
Hey, if it isn't to much trouble, could you make an X-49 Night Raven for us? It's a playable aircraft from a game called Ace Combat 3 and it's very powerful and fitting for the 24th century. plz make it for us pleeeeez.
#8 ST_and_SW_Freak 2008-03-23 11:28
Also, make it high poly with a big price cause I don't really like low poly figures.

Nice dude! You think you can do the following from my favorite space movie besides Wrath of Khan, Undiscovered Country, and Nemesis

The Last Starfighter

- Gunstar with Death Blossom

- Centaries' Car

- Zurian Drone

- Kodan Mothership
