So much frigging work needs to be done for it... I say in a year. I haven't even rewritten that script I'm supposed to rewrite. Heh, but if modeling continues to progress smoothly as it is now, I can do some minimal animation this summer.
Yeah personally the WC3 style of Kilrathi ships really seem to be the most consistent (probably because they switched to 3D and wanted an excuse to keep polygon levels down)--they even tied in the designs with their culture, thereby making the old designs seem totally not in tune with their culture. Everything in WC1/2 seemed so rounded and ... smooth looking.
Well the Ships Database here at the CIC says it has 15 laser turrets--so I gave it two AMGs because there are two turrets that are way bigger in the game model on the top and bottom, so I interpreted them as AMGs.
Nope. You'd have to ask someone with WC Saga or WC3 running. To me they all look roughly the same size so I am texturing them all the same (what gun type they are is not relevant to me because the models will be turned into wrecks anyway). It would be interesting to find out though. I would've expected more AMGs on the Kilrathi cruiser as well however I could not see any other large turrets on it--so I am assuming there are only two (although there are quite possibly more).
Cam - I just finished Priv:RF and I'm starting WC3 next, I might come across your answer in a little bit as I tend to enjoy stripping hte capships of their armament before I destroy them (makes it a bit tougher that way )
