V-Wing Fighter/Bomber

This bundle is marked as approved. It works and satisfies the submission rules.
The V-Wing, also known as the Alpha-3 Nimbus, was a short-range fighter used by the republic during the clone wars. Although primarily used as a fighter, it could also be equipped with proton bombs in order to combat capital ships. This ship would later develop into the A-Wing starfighter used by the rebel alliance.

I made this model to be used in dogfighting maps, so it includes animations for rolling and looping. It also has a morph and alternate set for when the fighter folds its wings and lands. Other features include tail particles for the engines and sprite attachment points for damage effects. The texture was made to match that of Illidan(Evil)x's ARC-170 model.

3/5.
 
very cute, I like it, Though iv never been a fan of the A wing (not your fault, your models great, nice animations, the textures nice, and the fact that it matches Illidan(Evil)x's Arc-170 is also nice, this is a very accurate depiction of the A wing) iv just never liked the shape. but that's my personal view.

looking forwards to your interpretation of the droid Hyena-class bomber, and hopefully a blue vulture droid and if not a vulture droid, some buzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz droidzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.

8/10

Edit: why does only the top pair of guns have blue flashes? why don't the guns underneath have blue flashes as well? do they serve another purpose? perhaps adding a second set underneath could be cool. or you could make those under barrels have green flashes instead, and call that spell first. an idea.

Perhaps i'll do the buzz droid next! The Hyena-class is not really part of star wars canon, and i don't think it is distinguishable enough from the regular vulture for it to be recognized ingame. I'd rather use the Belbullab-24 bomber like Battlefront II did, since that would give you an excuse to give it different handling features from the vulture ingame when you're making maps.

The bottom guns don't have flahes simply because it wouldn't be seen from a top-down perspective, and i wanted to save a couple of polygons. Because of the way they scale, they can't share the same bone.

All of these Star Wars models are TOO DAMN HAWT! I love 'em.

You should do the Falcon.

Chewie, we're home :')

That could be smart, considering that there will likely be a storm of people wanting to do maps with it once The Force Awakens hits the cinema. ;)

For a second there I thought Olof uploaded a new model. Lookin' good.

Thanks! Glad to see that you're still hanging around.
 
True. But, no offence to the creator, it could use an upgrade. Animations look too static.
And I'd love to see a Falcon with your awesome textures.

Yeah, standards were a bit lower back then. Maybe i'll make a new one when there's time; otherwise you can ask Illidan(Evil)x for a remake, i know his modeling skills have developed lots since.

I made a test map showing how you can combine this with unit rotations for some cool maneuvers. It leaks to high heaven, but it's just an illustration:

EDIT: press UP, LEFT & RIGHT Arrows (one at a time please) to see some cool stuff. Keep in mind this is without speed change and mid-animation animation speed changes, which could do really cool stuff as well. e.g. You could fly backwards and upside down for a second and then come back down behind an enemy.

fair enough, I suppose that could be sorta true, depending on how big or small you made it in game, which would depend on if its a ground or space map, I thought it seemed pretty cool looking with the 2 heads and under carriage turret. matches the vulture droids shape and texture better then the Belbullab-24 bomber does in my opinion. the Belbullab always seemed so ugly to me, mostly because it looks like it needs a pilot, doesn't have that 100% ''droid'' feeling. at least not like the hyena does. i'd personally love to see both a Hyena and a Belbullab, serving different purposes. I just like the Hyena more so im ultra Biased. (I really super duper dislike the Belbullab)

but that's just my personal opinion.

''The bottom guns don't have flashes simply because it wouldn't be seen from a top-down perspective,''

not every body is using it this way, If they wanted it as a large air unit to do bombing runs on ground maps, dual lights would be cool. especially if they were out of sync the same way I showed you on you're Droid Gunship model, with top flashes and bottom flashes taking turns.

''and i wanted to save a couple of polygons''

this made me a sad panda to read

''I refuse to do any models from the expanded universe''

so did that.

''Because of the way they scale, they can't share the same bone.''

Fair enough I can under stand cutting corners I do it often =)

this clone craft is very cool beans 8.5/10
