Posted: Fri Dec 23, 2005 4:04 pm Post subject: Components idea
Since we've started something pretty grand, I'm going to continue the trend with the components.
I've been compiling a list of all the makers of ships and ship parts in Star Wars (theforce.net lists over 1300 corperations in total). I expect to have approx 200-300. When it comes time to make the components, there will be manufacturers names on each of them. Some will be identical and just have a different name (possiblely even different pics), but what I think I'm going to do, especially for the bigger names, is have them have slightly different stats.
For instance: a Kuad Drive Sublight engine might be slightly smaller than others but a Hoesch & Kessel Sublight engine might use less energy. And then you could always go with a Corellian Shipwrights which might cost less.
With this in mind, I will probably also make it that depending where you are will depend on the different types available. Don't expect very much Raithir-made products if you are shopping in the Corellia system. But on Tatooine, you could find just about a little of everything.
GMLocutus, if you want the list of ship manufacturers when I've got it done, let me know. Don't know if it will help you or not. Nick (bearclaw)

I know most of the SW ship manufacturers and what they made, the problem is finding low poly count ship meshes, I could download an ISD mesh and convert it to .x but the chances are the poly count is astronomically high.
Some ships I've found, such as the lambda and DST are alright to use (i think)
But sure, list them here and if possible the ships they made and we can work on component images and such. Back to top
