Mudd's Models
« on: June 10, 2015, 03:31:49 am »
A new release ... I hope you guys dig it. This is the Starrunner Class Clipper. This ship is depicted HERE



The model has no break Mod but it does come with both SFC and SFC2 EAW/OP versions.



Starrunner Download

Enjoy!

EDIT: I forgot to tweak the RGB textures for SFC and thus the model appeared untextured in game. That's fixed now.

Thanks Darkdrone. There's more a-comin'

I lost almost all my old models, except for the following; otherwise I'd post them in this thread. But, here's what I got:

Though TOS/SFB is my favourite era to model, I've been known to wander around, creatively speaking. This pic is a sample of an entire Fed fleet modelled after the Next Generation look. I tend to use them as X-Ships. They only have SFC2 EAW/OP compatibility.



Next Gen Fleet Download

Up next is my Strange New Worlds Planetpacks. The Basic set replaces all stock Planet in SFC2 EAW/OP with planets that have faux-atmospheric effects and repositioned hardpoints, all equatorial - which allows for variable effects such as tractor beam usage for planets. The Plus pack is a lengthy list of TOS planets depicted on screen in the TOS Remastered version. I would best suggest this to be used in concert with Shipedit and FSME for customized missions in these location. They are also only SFC2 EAW/OP compatible. Should there be significant demand for SFC versions, I might consider a conversion, but that could turn into a lot of uninteresting work for yours truly ... lol.



Strange New Worlds - BASIC

Strange New Worlds - PLUS


I thought about creating a new thread for the following files, as they are not mine, but they are a bit difficult to find these days. In honour of GOG's re-release of SFC, I present Shipedit for SFC ... Version 2. If you have Ship edit Version 3 already installed you might want to create a new directory for Version 2. Version 2 reads the sfbspc13 file rather than SFC2's Shiplist and makes for new ships in the venerable game

Shipedit Version 2 for SFC


I didn't see FSME on Dynaverse FTP, so I shall also include it here. FSME allows for customized missions for the game, both SFC and SFC2 EAW, I believe. There is also a patch for this game, which is listed below. I absolutely love this program, despite the inability to create single player or Server based games. A series of mission can be created to simulate a campaign, with custom ships, bases, planets or whatever else you have in your shiplist. For me, this really opens up the playability of the games. There are several examples of SFB missions in the Captain's Mission Basic set to mod from if you lack a tactical mind .... but then again, if you lack a tactical mind, then why aren't you playing Bridge Commander or some such ... lol?

FSME

FSME Patch

For those of you not used to downloading from Google Drive, the download link is at the top of the page ... just move you mouse up there and it will appear.

And now, back to the modding grindstone ...

Cool! New planets that I don't have to do myself. You can have dozens of unique planets in normal campaign play by directing the shiplist to specific models in each section that they appear, i.e. each race and all the neutral (and possibly specialty) sections. That means that Planet 9 in Lyran space won't be the same Planet 9 in Fed space and so on. Homeworlds or other specific planets need not be touched.

Thanks to Bernard Guignard, I have recovered some of my old models. Model downloads are scarce these days and I would like to keep my work available to the community, so I'm going to be posting them here as part of Mudd's Models. All reposted ships will be usable for SFC and SFC2 EAW/OP. Some have Break Mods, some do not. Work on new models will not change and they should be coming along with some regularity soon. Here's a few to get the ball rolling:



The UESN Starship Armarillo, as seen at the Starship Museum, highly modified by me.

UESN Armaillo Download




This is hardly canon, but then alot of my ships aren't. I have always had a fondness for the Daedalus Class and this is close to what I imagined she'd look like in a TOS time period.

Daedalus MKII Download




It seems like no Modeller can resist the lure of the Great Lady of Starfleet, and I am no exception. I originally made 3 versions of the Constitution Class Starship, reflecting various refits, but I think this one is my favourite.

Enterprise Download

There will be more coming later.

Thanks Terradyhne; many of your Klingons fill my shiplist (for some reason, I suck at making Klinks ...)

I'd have been here a lot sooner with the following downloads, but I caught the flu last week somehow and I was down for the count. But anyways, up first is the Insurgent Class Corvette, as depicted HERE.



Insurgent Class Corvette

Up next is a fairly popular mesh of mine. The Helena has soap bubble-like nacelles (inverted pollys is all they are) that help give it a distinctive look - along with a healthy dose of non canon details (But then, I tend to do that with everything to some degree.) But for those of you who dislike the inverted pollys, I have also included a more traditional looking alternative.





Helena Class Cruiser

That's all for now, there's plenty more a comin' ... Long Live SFC!

I've always considered inverted bussard polys with that "back wall" texture to be one of the coolest ideas introduced by modelers. Makes them seem to glow even in SFC1.

In due time ...

I've been preoccupied with D&D lately (it's very much a family affair, as my 10 year old son plays - and has played - since he was six ...), and given my whimsically OCD-type-nature, that's what I've been focusing on -- but fear not; I'll be back to SFC before too long!

Mudd,

I sincerely want to thank you for your work on the planets and all the space items.  It truly made the game (SFC2)  10x better and much more immersive.  I was desperate to find material for this game as it is slowly disappearing.  Since it is the 50th anniversary of ST, I wanted to play this game again, and I was instantly hooked in again.  Then my modding genes kicked in and I wanted to give the game an HD treatment.  It is amazing how the game runs on today's hardware...if only it was 32bit color.  I installed your planet packs and wanted to tell you that even today, your work is useful, so if you have any more please put it out there.  Thank you

Good Morning, Dyna-bots! (And I don't mean the Transformer kind ...)

I know it's been a while, and I apologize for that. That said, I reinstalled this venerable game because I keep coming back to it for some weird reason ... It still runs on Linux Mint, OP runs fantastically - although EAW stretches a little weird and I can't find a resolution setting where it displays perfectly, but this is likely a WINE version issue that I'll get cleared up before long.

Am I gonna get back to modelling? I have ideas, so this is likely. They're not particularly great ideas that'll shake the Dynaverse, but they are ideas.

Speaking of modelling, does anyone have a couple a spacestations they could share with the old space hustler? The Type G and Type J from Starfleet Museum are what I'm looking for as I replenish my ship models to a visually satisfying game. I'd make'm myself, but like I said, I got other ideas.

Since I've been gone, I've noticed a lot of talk about Q3 hex editing and hacking the exe ... anyone figure out how to make blue phaser fire yet?

and one last thing not particularly related to SFC, but still under the umbrella of trek battle gaming. I found and installed  the old FASA Star Trek Strategy and Tactical Combat Simulated game ... located HERE. I know a lot of you guys played the board game way back when. As old as this game is, it's still a lot of fun, so I thought I'd share the love by posting something about it ... It is highly customizable and I'm setting the thing up for pure TOS goodness rather than the default TMP.

Mudd! Great to see you back! I am just this weekend sorting and collatin my various SFC files and was just admiring your NextGen Fed fleet from 2015; trying to decide which ship Capt. Nakai will fly in the TNG period ;)

I imagine you're looking for models of the Type G  & J and not just images. I have a SFC model of the J-class as Starbase 47, built by Wolfy/Models Please, from the Outalance site - I could send it to you. (See attached) I thought I'd seen a G class somewhere but it hasn't shown up yet, but I'll keep looking.

I had no idea someone had made a PC version of the FASA ST game (non-official, since FASA lost the license in '89). I still have the box set of rules; being a hardcore SFB player I found it hard to adapt to its different gaming structure but always liked the look of their products (better art & counters than SFB in the day, and FASA used ST movies as a source)

Hey TanimaL!

Yeah, that's one of them. I'd greatly appreciate having a copy ... How do you wanna send it?

The FASA game is like SFB Junior and you could houserule the board game to be closer to SFB rules if you wanted to ... we did by adding fighters( like 3 to a hex piece), Transporter Bombs, and boarding actions.

(...)

Have you tried the unoffical HD patch for EAW?
These days people can set resolutions up to 1920x1200 without any problems.

About the sprites.q3, it is not really hex editing. There is an actual editor for 2 years now, that allows a lot of things. In SFC 2 OP, for example, hundreds of assets were added or modified.

Phasers of all sort of colors are also available. But it is something a bit out of my area.

Have you read about the "model browser" ? I've been updating it lately. It opens all the SFC1, SFC2 and SFC3 models without any problem (bmp or pcx), and allows you to export\import any model to\from *.OBJ format, that is at reach of any modern modelling program. It also allows a person to scan any models for problems like missing texture files, unused materials, and so on.
For example if you run it on OP+ 4.1 it throws the following report:

Code: [Select]
The scan was made in 712 model(s):

Models without hardpoints: 9
Hardpoints with unknown names: 132
Materials with unknown flags: 12068
Materials not used: 30895
Referenced textures missing: 0
Texture files not found: 22889
Texture files without name: 60

There is always room for improvement.

Actually I did very little to wine 3.0; it's adjusting the SFC.ini to make it run in a playable state that's the trick ... Higher screen resolutions cause it to crash, but I'm content with 1024x768, so that's not a deal breaker for me. I also run Wine as emulating a virtual desktop, which helped a lot, thus the game runs in a window way better than any sfc.ini setting.

Just so anyone interested might know, PlayOnLinux, available through the Software Manager on Mint, makes it WAY easier to run SFC OP ... it doesn't like SFC2 EAW on my system, mostly because it's a two disc game and PlayOnLinux keeps the DVD/Rom too busy to register the second disc. It also runs GMAX/NifGMAX flawlessly ... :D

While modelling this morning, it occurred to me there aren't many of us left here in Dyna-land.What about the member or guest visitor who'd love to pick up SFC modelling ... but just doesn't know where to start?

PUBLIC SERVICE ANNOUNCEMENT

Start here, by downloading GMAX.

Then, download this (NIF Tools) and install it in your GMAX Folder.... Google Drive flags it as suspicious, but I've NEVER had a problem with it.

Now, one more download and you're almost there, the SFC plugins ...install them in your plugins folder.

In order to run GMAX properly now, you'll need to use the nifgmax.exe in order to use the SFC plugins.

Now you're almost ready to fire this bad boy up, but upon doing so you'll be asked to register the program .... but the original license page is no more ... what to do? well, go here and get your code.

Now you should be all set to begin futzing around in Gmax and be able to import/export SFC models.

You're very welcome;

I, Mudd.

Thank you v much for the walkthru -  with longer breaks in between involvement, and the scattered nature of the topics and threads, this sort of "Step A/B/C" is very useful

Ah more of Mudd's ships to add to my SFC 1 ship library, which has, so far, over 200 models in it.

I've taken a break from modelling starships..... too busy building and fixing motorcycles. Then there's my flying antics playing IL-2 Stormovik "Battle of Stalingrad" flying with the 1st Combined Air Group clan taking up spare time in the evenings.

Haven't created anything new for a while as the problem is having that moment of inspiration for a new model.

I've been playing the game recently though and I still enjoy creating mission scripts and playing the missions. Kind of tempted to duplicate the stock Klingon and Lyran mission scripts BUT have the enemy as the Kzinti, then switch them into the campaign line up.
The Klingons have many ways to fry a cat. I prefer to use an L7 Fast Battlecruiser!!

That is nice.
Have you read about the map editor i released some time ago? It works with all SFC versions and scripts! :)
I also started writing a mission editor yesterday for SFC2OP singleplayer missions. You can check the progress here if you curious about it. It will be something never seen before. It doesn't require any compiler. It will be a standalone windows application.

Eagle Eye Software's FMSE only allows 30 x 30 maps so anything that allows a bigger area is welcome. They do applogise for this limitation.

The victory conditions facility and hailing messages components also don't function despite being scripted into scenarios, so other than the briefing message, I don't bother with these.

FMSE also only does SFC 1 and SFC 2 mission scripts. Oddly enough it lists the Mirak (Kzinti) and ISC for SFC 1 missions, despite neither being released in the stock SFC 1 game. I've added the Kzinti and ISC into my SFC 1, along with the Tholians, Cardassians, Dominion, Pakleds, Borg, etc. to add more scenario material.

Mudd's models take up a part of the model folder.

Well the alternative script editor is downloaded and we'll see how it goes.

While modelling this morning, it occurred to me there aren't many of us left here in Dyna-land.What about the member or guest visitor who'd love to pick up SFC modelling ... but just doesn't know where to start?

PUBLIC SERVICE ANNOUNCEMENT

Start here, by downloading GMAX.

Then, download this (NIF Tools) and install it in your GMAX Folder.... Google Drive flags it as suspicious, but I've NEVER had a problem with it.

Now, one more download and you're almost there, the SFC plugins ...install them in your plugins folder.

In order to run GMAX properly now, you'll need to use the nifgmax.exe in order to use the SFC plugins.

Now you're almost ready to fire this bad boy up, but upon doing so you'll be asked to register the program .... but the original license page is no more ... what to do? well, go here and get your code.

Now you should be all set to begin futzing around in Gmax and be able to import/export SFC models.

You're very welcome;

I, Mudd.

the gmax file has a trojan in it. but it does install,  my malware program caught one but I don't know if I'm safe lol frakin hackers and neither turbo squid or the nif link works cant register it .

where is your web site id like to fill up sfc1 with your pretos work

Most of my recovered work is on my google drive ... The registration used to work when I posted it ... I'll look into it. As for the bug, I run Linux so I don't worry so much about bugs, but the program does run. The Nif link works, but google posts a warning,
