Hehehe, yeah, well, better this than saying it's easy and never manage to setup the whole thing...
Plus there are still the responders to setup, the rotation for the gun to handle, etc.

I'm still working on enhancing the whole thing, then I'll release it.


Meanwhile, if Karkadann wants to try and figure out how to do this in Max... Here is a list of things that must be done:

Note: without the Python file you won't be able to fire anything, so even if you find the options in Max you won't be able to check this in the game.
Or, you could export a single PRP from Max, and put this PRP in Teledahn, somewhere near the vapor gun. If you did it correctly, it should put some decals on the object you added when firing the vapor gun :)


EDIT: I'm not sure what we're firing exactly - is it a "small" gun with a small bullet, or is it a real canon, as there was on ships, that fire 10 cm wide bullets ?
Because if it's one like Karkadann built, it's going to cause really big decals. And we won't be able to see the bullet once fired :|

By the way, nice gun model too, Karkadann :P

Sounds a bit complicated for me at this point at least for me Sirius, However I did set up the cannon ball with a simple component and a animated proxy terrain pushing the cannon ball out at high speed that seemed to work pretty good, although its only got one shot, so far.................

Karkadann, I put your cutlass model in the age and I think it looks really nice. During this process, I re-sized the texture images and reduced the face count on the model by 1/3. I also converted the model to Blender format. I was wondering if you'd like me to re-post the new files for public or private download? I can easily do that.

I'm up to my eyeballs building this little age, but I've been watching what you guys are up to. I hope we get back to this project later, it looks like it could be a lot of fun!

Sure, if any one needs a copy of it for something and aint working in Max they can download your blender version.
Public download would be great.
Thank you

The link to download the new cutlass files is here:

Karkadann's Cutlass

The file includes an .obj file, .blend file, and 3dsMax file of the cutlass object along with a separate file containing the texture images. I did not include the lighting image as that will change on each use.

Thanks for the offer of the skull, Karkadann. Modeling decent low poly skulls is still outside my skill level. I've only recently gotten serious about improving my modeling skills with truely organic objects. I had a difficult enough time figuring out how to make the low poly hat :( , but I got it! Fortunately, I had already found a skull mesh that was low poly at blendswap dot com. Interestingly enough, the skull model is credited to "Corvus". I wonder if that's our Corvus?

I'm making good progress on this little age, but there's still so . much . to . do! I haven't even started on sfx or wiring it yet. How many days till Christmas :shock: ?
