    If there's no intersection in the mesh then I'd be willing to take a look. Though I'm busy too so I'd be doing it inbetween everything else.

    Send it over and I'll take a look see. :)

    21?? What kind of mesh is that?? I'll take a look, but I won't be able to download it until I get to my dads broadband connection. Poor old me, I'm still dial-up. :(

    Whazup?

    Hey gang,

    Taking a break from the BSG stuff for a few minutes I fiddled around with the Whitestar meshes from ap3d.com (mentioned in an earlier post). The low poly one would make a good start. There's lots of intersection to deal with, and the textures don't import (loses UV data for some reason), but that's fairly easily dealt with.

    Again, the problem is permission. I sent an email off to the author as well so we'll see what happens. If we don't hear soon, I'll submit a request via the company's feedback form.

    I would happily take care of adjusting the mesh for unfolding, but I can't start on it until after we finish off the BSG ship pack (at least the ships that aren't yet available elsewhere). I've made a commitment to that project, so I can't take on anything else just yet.

    SJ

    Again, I don't mind doing the unfolding. :) SJ, Nothing and I seem to work well like this. SJ cleans them up, Nothing and I unfold them.

    I'm sure we can get this out to those who want it some time soon.

    Though I'm afraid I agree with SJ. Being a BSG nut, those puppies come first for me too.

    Thanks Jerry. I'll get right on it once SJ has cleaned it up for us. Has a nice papermodel of the B5 station ever been done?? I always liked that. I also have a game mod mesh somewhere we could use in the future too???

    Hi Nothing, I'm not sure how long for but it's up and running again now. Send away. :) If it's a large file, I'll need to wait until the weekend before downloading so I can use my dads broadband connection.

    As soon as I have I'll see what I can do. Is there any intersection? If not then I can get it build ready pretty quickly.

    ther doesnt apear to be any intersection. with all the curves an compund curve it will take time to peice the parts. it is a large file i think because of the textures.
