Before that, you should indicate under what license you're releasing your work. GPL works for us, but I think Creative Commons is good too.

Licensing?

I've never been too worried about that.
I generally always give my models freely away..as long as I'm given proper credit, it can be used or modified freely.

The point is that there has to be some clarity about that for the project. People in Linux land get very nervous when something is supected of being improperly licensed.

ERm....Creative Commons then.... I guess. I honestly don't care (or really know the real difference between the two systems)

you can submit it to our patch tracker or send it to me via mail. please send every source file you created to create the model - every texture source and model source you have. And Creative Commons Attribution-Share Alike 3.0 is the license you should release it under.

Thanks for your work.

Give me your e-mail and I'll send the model, the texture and the photoshop file. B.t.w. - any preference as far as model format goes? (if .3ds isn't preferred)

Oh, the vindicator is optimized and the mapping is coming along nicely.. ;D

I'm also making some sketches for the armor.

Just FYI, you can also attach your files to a forum post.

Here's another little toy:

The ammo box on the right currently looks like something that is energy-based, alltough that's easily changed (in case it uses caseless ammo)

Sent.. Could use some more tweaks on the texture tough, but I guess it's good to go.

I can write down the PHLANAX research and UFOPedia info if you need it.

Thank you, but we probably won't use the item in the single-player campaign, since we have too many human weapons already.

Regards,
Winter

Too much weapons? That's an oxymoron... :)

Mm...reminds me of 1.13 MOD for Jagged Alliance 2 ... soooooooooooo many weapons... Tons of Gunz.... 200 at least.. yeah, that WAS a bit too much (not much difference between guns). The trick is to have guns with personality. So far I notices ammo is not a problem in the game. I rarely even reload once during a mission.
So a devastating, expensive, ammo-hungry weapon might fit the bill.


But I digress. I got a md2 importer but it doesn't work..I'll keep looking..

I think its only the human weapons winter mentioned not needing more of.

I think we could do with a few new alien weapons? :)
