    So how's it going with HD remakes? Especially with Caliburn. I've seen bigsnake's clay model on youtube and it looks really good.
    I've started working on the Hyperion as well, but it will be more like HD Fury remake. But it's going so slow, I just don't know how to model things without knowing how they look like I have to make up things in process and it's slowing me down. And it also really frustrates me.

    Oh, I'm working on the nose section right now, not too much progress since last time though so far, the shape is hard to get right.

    I'm having the same problem Mega, it's quite tough to get the right inspiration xD

    EDIT: I have no idea how to work the image attachments when they play up. Here's direct links to the images.

    The attachments are not working Just paste URL of images, this is "large images" thread so it should be fine.

    @Thane: Nice, I like the front part, the fins especially. And may I have a little question, does Sketchup have some kind of render engine?
    I basically have the cockpit done, it's been pretty difficult to make, horrible topology on that one, but I'm still pretty pleased with it. It's better than the original Hyperion or maybe even the models from game.

    From the looks of things, the only rendering engines available for SketchUp are 3rd party plug-ins.

    To be perfectly honest though, it's not a feature I would use in SketchUp, considering I only build in there and then export the models to Blender for any flashy visual purposes.

    Finally some posts, I thought everyone is dead
    @Thane: Oh I see, good thing you use the Blender for something. I don't know if it's comptatible, but I heard Vray is good. But I don't really know because I've never used it.

    Here's my progress so you can have at least some image of it.

    Sweet tail-lights!

    I always wondered why AG Racers didn't have any practical exterior lighting, it would make navigating dark areas much easier.

    So small update. Very small update.
    I was out for most of the weekend, but I'm back now, and I've gotten started with the plating further back.

    The slow angle-changing tri's that I've noticed on the Feisar and EG.X are amazingly effective, for the longest time I've had brainfart moments and not been able to figure out how to pull off this pretty simple method xD
    So, my to do list:
    - Flesh out how the side pods, wings and engine mesh together.
    - Come up with a decent underside for the nose and main body.
    - Finishing touches.
    Gotta say it's going quite slow, but I think I'm focusing too much on the details too early on maybe.


    I've also noticed something quite nice. The view out of the cockpit is actually pretty clear all-round.


    The nose attachments aren't intrusive to the view, although it has slight blind spots with the metal frame (in hindsight, Caliburn could do with one of those reinforced curved windows to clear up those blindspots xD)...
    If I'm honest, I would be quite happy inside this pilot seat.

    Main ship display to be redesigned later. I admit it's a placeholder from one of the W-HD ships, but it feels a little obscured anyway right now.

    Guys... I think I've been spending way too much time on this... what is my life?

    That's the way I like it! To the details we go! I guess you understand what I feel when I'm modeling stuff that's not exactly vital to the design or is visible on the exterior. By that I mean the Antigravity device or jet engine (little promo, it's on Sketchfab now, check it out: https://sketchfab.com/models/2608a20...146e2375feff83 ).

    Keep up the good work.

    @Amaroq Dricaldari: Thanks man. I'm planning to add the front lights as well, some interesting design. And for the lighting in general, there is some on the HD Fury ship (at least), but only in form of glowing polygon somewhere in front of the ship. I want to take more complex approach than that.
