View Full Version : I wonder if a VTOL sim would be too hard.

Pic. Ha, if only I could make the VTOL cloak in Alice like it does here.

Pic is big. Unfortunately that VTOL is just about the only thing that I can export. No nanosuit, not even a CELL helicopter or a.. Actually maybe a gun, let me check.
Some of them I can, some of them I can't. There are also a bunch of character models, the marines, CELL operatives, and some Ceph vehicles (Pinger's going to be fun.)
It seems that the ones that I can export to max are all the lower quality versions kept in there for completeness. It's not too much of a difference, it's mostly texture rather than model, textures that Alice couldn't use unless someone reprogrammed the 3D engine.

Preview images of the VTOL and its 30,000 poly glory.

Removing interior components will reduce poly count by 8,086. Removing missiles will reduce poly count by an additional 1,512. Removing the missile tube containers will reduce poly count by an additional 1,814. Removing cockpit chairs (Two) will reduce poly count by an additional 144 for a total of 9,742 polys.
Right now I'm in the process of creating the subobject hierarchy for the 134 subobjects. In the morning, at least.

That looks really cool, I'm looking forward to it.

Didn't have a clue what you were talking about, googled, vertical take-off and landing aircraft, ah that makes sense, maybe related to some existing game (haven't got a clue). Looks pretty wonderful. Such an amazing model must be accompanied by an amazing world, looking forward to it.

wait are you talking about the actual programming? if so, I did something on thrust vectoring, and it wasn't hard.

Well, it isn't hard at all, but I'm intending to make something that would strain even my computer. Something that makes Alice look much nicer than it is now. Perhaps to attract an influx of new users. Show exactly what you can do with even Alice if you try hard enough.

Well, the thing I'm making will be delayed for a short while. This is because I had screwed up bad. I did not put textures into the equation when I was making the VTOL and now I have to do either two things: Start over and make the texture atlas from the beginning, or separate the subobjects into even more pieces so that every texture is used as intended in the original model.
