Bravo on the brilliant work so far. Not really pushing you to make this, but I'm reposting my mole-machine drawings, and a little something extra I just found. If I find the drive, I might update the sketch later with the addition.
This is what comes of sticking one's head in the sand, working on new 'items' since Sunday and only looking in the texture pack section of the forums...I completely missed this awesome airship mod thread launch!
I shall begin work on a skin for it forthwith and put all else on hold. I am quite sure someone else may beat me to it, but I will do my best to make something in-keeping with its character and awesomeness! .
Thanks, pchan3 and my apologies once again for missing the start of the thread! :smile.gif:
I tried a little bit to texture it, basicly the area loadout is straight forward:
Here the *.png for the folder item rename to airship.png:
And you asked for an ICON here is one in 32x32, very drafty but better than nothing, I have no idea on which position you included it on the items.png?:
If I find some time I will try to pixelart it too look better or Glimmar may do it ;D
btw. Glimmar, beat ya ^^ nah not really and I modified some of ya work.. *blush*
Lol! That's awesome speed work there, Tiger!
You've actually made my job a lot easier, cos' I'm useless at visualising things and trying to get a grip on what goes where! Having just got pchan's patched paddle steamer to work, I'm currently trying to get the airship mod up and running. Had RL things to do since pchan poked me in the ribs and let me know he had a mod thread for the airship. :smile.gif: Ha ha
Interesting to see how the balloon texture works. Not having seen it in the round yet, I had been assuming the skin was a patchwork of rectangles, each of which I'd be able to put more detail in, but I see the shape on the plan covers the entire balloon. That will be an interesting task. ;/
Anyways, well done mate, I shall get back to the task of getting the mod to work first.
 In case I can't get the mod to work straight away, can you make a quick vid of it (if that's alright with pchan?) and walk around it, looking at all the shapes from every angle? :smile.gif: I'm frustratingly snowed under with RL stuff at the moment, so don't have a lot of time to mess around!
[edit 2] Ha ha! Got it working and here it is in position for it's test flight (too dark and dangerous to leave the hanger at the moment! Lol!):
@ pchan: If you do get round to making a proper puffing animated steam train, here's my concept drawing again I gave to MaudDib:
...if you want me to change things in anyway, please let me know. :smile.gif:
Many thanks again for exceeding everyone's hopes and dreams for fantastic steampunk vehicles and this is mentioned in all due respect to MaudDib. :smile.gif:
