Hi all,
I rendered in Transcendence 40-frames format the entire Coxxon's battlestar galactica meshes that are free for non-commercial use that Prophet found a while ago. (thanks Prophet!)

30 ships

Here a quick screenshot for your pleasure (some ships are overlapping, sorry, but it's good enough)
Image

anyway, i'm ready to go to start making an adventure extension based in battlestar galactica universe.

What I miss:
a model of a new Cylon Basestar
a model of the resurrection ship and the resurrection hub
a model of the Demetrius sewage treatment ship
a model of the Gideon hauler vessel

I also have (not in the screenshot)
battlestar pegasus
old series basestar

any comment ?

Those ships look really nice!
I'll keep an eye out for the basestar.

really? What did you have in mind?

The BSG story dosn't really lend itself to T's rogue-like style.
What about a resource management style adventure?
- mining tylium, water ice, algae (food)
- building raptors and vipers, ammo
- solve the puzzles of the 13th colony and find earth...

( it could be pretty sweet 8) )

Can you defend the Earth from the Syrtian invaders?
Stay tuned for updates!

Thanks Prophet. :)
I can provide the files for Bryce 5.5c if more people want to tinker with them

Yes, I would like to add a resources management, if I can manage to code it (water, food, tylium and ammo).
It can be a nice exercise for improving my coding skills and provide something new to the Transcendence player.

as I said before, I just rendered meshes found on internet.

my skills are far far less than the quality of those ships.

moreover, keep up the good work! I really like your style ! :D

Amen to that, Prophet! Digdug, Is the Cylon Base Star graphic you are showing the same one which you asked be about, or a different one? Where can I find "Coxxon's battlestar galactica meshes?" I plan to get back in to Blender a bit, and the meshes would be useful.

the basestar meshes done by Coxxon are not anymore on sci-fi meshes.
you can download them from here:
http://dl.getdropbox.com/u/720869/Coxxon%20basestar.rar

A friendly guy of the google sketchup community was so kind to send to me the file. :D
