Yeah... sorry, not gonna say much right now, kind of tired and I'm going to bed. But this is work from today. Anyway, this is pretty much just the base, and I'll get my concept art for the cannons up soon. Yeah, it's a high energy laser like weapon. I know right now it looks like I just copied a lot of the model over and over again... and well, that's sorta what I did, but once I get the basic layout I'll start rearranging stuff to mix it up a bit.

Anyway...

Nice model bro, looking good. Can't wait until there is a weapon up there.

Make a low poly version of it and bake some normals.

And then put it into an RTS :3.

Looks really nice, good job.

Not errors. The top is really smooth. And for some reason Mental Ray is rendering shadows that shouldn't be cast. I'll fix the smoothing though, don't worry.

^Taken in to consideration, might come up with something to slightly cover them up.

How do you make the flares?

ICEE
October 18th, 2008, 08:00 PM
Out of curiosity, whats the purpose of the ladder on the back? "to climb on top duh." But I mean if the gun rotates to aim, wont anyone on top fall off?

Maintenance. There's a hatch on top to get in to the inside to fix up gears or something I guess.

DOMINATOR
October 18th, 2008, 08:31 PM
nice model.
whats the point of the gears if you have hydraulics underneath.

BobtheGreatII
October 18th, 2008, 11:16 PM
Rotation, come on, why does everything have to have a purpose. <:mad:> It's already by far not realistic. lol

Cortexian

I don't like how the gears are "so" exposed, if they were a little deeper into the turret I think it might look better. As for purpose, they could have something to do with loading new ammunition canisters (like the gas they use in Star Wars (Tibana gas iirc) to fire their laser weapons).

Heathen
October 20th, 2008, 12:47 AM
Sex. I love it. If I could get a link to the contest thread rules I would smile....tired and dont feel like searching so please PM me. Ill +rep if it will get you guys to do it.

It's kind of difficult to explain... the turret can lean forward and backward. This would give access to the ladder. But because of this rotation, the gears also need to turn in order to keep the base of the guns parallel to the base of the entire turret.

OH, so its an AA competition?

Huge generators everywhere.

Stormwing
October 25th, 2008, 06:30 PM
I can see it being part of a defense array on a fortress/tower, placed on a circular balcony that goes around the whole thing with other cannons of the same type. I kinda get a post-apoc cyberpunk feel from it.

very nice work :)

Advancebo
October 25th, 2008, 07:12 PM
a door to the controls?

The gun itself looks finished. Add an environment.

I love that generater

BobtheGreatII
October 26th, 2008, 10:21 PM
No, no updates yet, but the more I look at the model, the more those wires running from the generator to the turret, the more I think it looks like a giant molex connector. Oh well... Updates soon.

BobtheGreatII

Hunter

Looks awesome but think it makes the main weapon look small... and those towers at the back might get shot at when main weapon is firing at aircraft.

nick3d
October 28th, 2008, 10:12 AM
Speechless :O

E:

Hunter isnt that a good thing so the actual huge massive weapon thing wont be attacked, because its got more fire power than the little towers

Hunter
October 28th, 2008, 02:56 PM
It just makes the main weapon seem small, id prefer it if it looked larger. And if I was about to air strike a weapon like that I would aim for the middle.

BobtheGreatII
October 28th, 2008, 04:53 PM

Funny... since it's not your model/idea... :downs:

Just playing with you

It actually surprise me too... I had everything hidden but what I was working on... and after bringing everything back... I noticed how small it was compared to the other guns... I'll probable make different turrets than what I have right now, I don't really like them, they look kind of simple.

Evil_Monkey
October 28th, 2008, 06:12 PM
Looks much better IMO.

Corndogman
October 28th, 2008, 08:10 PM
Should the guns in the back be facing the other direction? Or is there going to be another larger structure back there? If so then it makes sense, but if not it seems like the guns should be facing outwards.

BobtheGreatII
October 28th, 2008, 08:10 PM
The guns turn...

Corndogman
October 28th, 2008, 08:13 PM

Now it looks like the guns surrounding the main gun are the AA guns. They look more the part, and now they look like they're sitting there to defend the larger (artillery) gun in the center from aerial attacks.

That's just me though.

BobtheGreatII
October 31st, 2008, 12:28 AM
The large gun in the center is for shooting a high powered laser in to space to knock just about out with a single shot... I would also like to note that uh... I know the generator wouldn't really allow that... but oh well, try to use your imagination. lol... Anyway, contest renders in, check out that thread.

Needs moar speed texturing competition :\

:lol:



Also, awesome model work, but the design of everything overall seems to be lacking. The amount and apparent complexity of the objects overwhelms and seems to have detail, but it doesn't have much design detail. There are lots of shapes and all together its a fine effort, but when you break it down individually, each piece isn't really that fantastic. They're still made up of solid evident shapes like cylinders and what not.

Really good work though, but take it further. Best thing for you to do would be to get a hold of some gears or ut3 level props, and have a look at em.

Also, concept your ideas fully and flesh them out first. If you design as you model, chances are your not going to push the design to match the detailed concept, so your going to fall short. It's hard to imagine impressive details on the fly without looking like a clusterfuck.

BobtheGreatII
November 2nd, 2008, 02:08 AM
Harsh. :saddowns:

But thanks for some actual crit. I see what you're saying, and I'll be sure to look out for making it a so called "clusterfuck". :lol:

Edit: Damn, I would give you rep... but I gotta spread the love first.

It is very good though. Attention to detail is spot on, just the design itself needs to be investigated a bit more.

Tweek
November 2nd, 2008, 05:24 AM
it LOOKS cool, which is most important really, but still, design wise, it's just a bunch of stuff copied 50 times and thrown together in the hopes of it looking neat.

actually, i'm about to repeat what dano said, so.. what he said.


it looks neat, but it's hardly impressive.

BobtheGreatII
November 2nd, 2008, 12:29 PM
Damn it Dane, now no one is gonna think my model is cool. :smith:

For a sec I thought it said Bobas great Entry.

I think its impressive. Whats wrong with duplicating something to improve the overall look.
