It's with great pride that I present to you a vastly improved BC-304 cruiser, from Stargate SG-1.

There are a number of changes in this model. Firstly, the poly count has been further reduced to 2532. Previously reported mesh problems have also been solved. Furthermore, this version comes with a whole new set of textures, far more detailed than before. They look just as good as on the show, although they look better in darker maps. While they also have no speculars, but nonetheless, they are more accurate than previous textures.

But aside from the model, new weapons (thanks to Ragnar) give a more authentically SG-1 performance to this ship. Missiles and railguns alike are now this vessel's armaments, just like you'd expected. peanutbutter points out that "I have made the missile contrails blue, otherwise, it is difficult to distinguish raigun fire from the missiles, and like i had mentioned in the last readme, i am a lazy guy, and can't be bothered to go through the sprites tutorial." Either way, they look pretty good to me. There's also a speed boost special weapon, with its speed decreased to avoid going in constant circles. It'll only turn the crew into chunky salsa that way. Wink

This one's a must-have for SG-1 fans out there. I know you're many, and so I'd hope will be the number of downloads for this awesome looking model.

Cool

This is the improved version of the previously released BC-304 Cruiser.
There are a number of changes in this model. Firstly, the polycount has been further reduced to 2532. Additionally, i have also added a few extra details to the model.
And the previously mentioned mesh problems have also been solved. Furthermore, this version comes with a whole new set of textures. They are not as fancy as i had hoped them to be (look better in darker maps, and ugly in lighter ones) because i have no way of adding speculars, but nonetheless, they are more accurate then the textures on the previous version of the ship.

Thanks to Ragnar, she is now armed with missiles, so all credit pertaining to the missile weapon goes him.
I have made the missile contrails blue,otherwise, it is difficult to distinguish raigun fire from the missiles, and like i had mentioned in the last readme, i am a lazy guy, and can't be bothered to go through the sprites tutorial.

She also retains the speed boost function, but i have decreased its speed considerably (otherwise, it keeps going in circles).

For just getting into this modeling ships thing, your first time out is very good. Youe detailed the problems with the first release and then went right back and made good on them. Outstanding work!.

Thank You Thunderfoot006.


And I just realized that i forgot to include the missile weapon SOD and texture.

Forgot to mention, i'll post a fix to that right away.

Hopefully the Staff will replace the 304.zip with the new one, so the downloader's don't get confused.

The missile ODF credit should really go to Squire James, he helped me with it, so I'm really passing his knowledge of it on :-)
