I second that, even a writen tutorial would be great. I find very difficult to make a texture from scratch.
I īve tried using some renders from the differents parts of the ship I wanted to make and then modify/detail this files, but there must be a better way...!!!!

Please...

Even if you are tired of reading this ALL the time let me tell you that    YOUR WORK IS AWESOME...!!!!!  


Thanks,

TUTORIAL, TUTORIAL, TUTORIAL!!!! You must do a tut for us lowly peons...please!! I still try to figure out what you did on my Cherokee, and think "Man! I'd give my left nut to texture that good!" If not a video tut, then at least a written one...hell, do it up in html and I'll put it up at my site. Only needs to be one aspect...probably the saucer. Most of what would need to be learned for the whole ship can be taught on the saucer.

PRETTY PLEASE WITH G'AGH ON TOP!?!

Hmm, a video tutorial isn't really practical as I texture in a very sporadic fashion, and although you would definitely see exactly how I did something, sometimes it's more luck than judgement!
However I can definitely do an illustrated written tutorial, maybe even with some sample files and stuff if that would be of any use to you guys.

Thanks Man!!!
That means alot man...I am sure that it does for Smiley aswell
As for Berman...well as much as I would LOVE to work for Star Trek designing ships(And of course working with Smiley on them ), I have never gotten a response to my queries other than,"Your work is good, but Sorry we are a full house now, and are not looking for anyone new.", or they want schooling in the Arts...as for me I  study the sciences, and  am too far along in the sciences to go an start over now(silly me...I thought that it would be better to go to school to learn something that can be acually weighed with grades...Art to me is just too arbortrary and cannot be a graded aspect of life)

But thanks man

The thing is. Game companies have requirements and restrictions regarding poly counts. ie: SFC3 had a 1000 poligon limit per model with exception of the Borg cube (1500). They also limit the size and number of bitmaps.  Modelers in the forum ships look better largely because they are higher poly and use multiple bitmaps. This may be partly why they are suggesting schooling where you would learn how to make lower poly models. Plus if they have other modelers and they all have met school requirements, it would then be odd for them to hire someone without them. Not too mention that it would be easier to communicate with modelers using max if you are familiar with all operations and terminology max uses.

Your stating that you are going to school for science also implies that that is more important to you.  If you are serious about a career in 3d you might want to consider formal training in the software that gamers are using. It might be only a 1 year program that is necessary, which perhaps you could squeeze in between your other courses.
