Manaan - Blue

Kashyyk - Green

Korriban - Red

Tatooine - Yellow

Dantooine - Silver

Nearly exactly what I was thinking. I was going to use a saber color for each, so for Tat I was thinking yellow or orange. And then Dan, possibly purple, but I like the idea of silver...

Orange is a great shout for Tatooine!

And purple's a great colour it'd stand out in the ruins :D

Close as I could get before it triggered.

Might I suggest using GLIntercept if you wish to get closer without triggering in the future?

Been a hot minute, but I have been working on this. I've mostly been working on the feet, so hoping to have something soon. Here's what the base texture is looking like at least.

a-ma-zing progress so far. I wonder if you would finally release not only HQ but MQ (middle-quality) textures of this aswell, running this myself still on a "half-end" rig, you know ....

Finally back to working on this. I lost everything so I'm starting from scratch, so give it some time. 😉

30 minutes for a remap, an hour for the texture?

More than enough time.

AHA! I knew the Selkath had a Star Map in Ahto City! Darn Force visions... making me go to the ocean floor... risking going crazy... almost get eaten by a shark... <trails off mumbling>.

My these look good.

Glad to see you're working on this again ;) version 1 was a massive improvement over the stock star maps. A new model would be neat, but I think the low-poly floating ball thing is the only bit that's really in need of improvement.

Is now a good time to suggest scrapping the original model and making a completely new one?

How dare you. What were you thinking? Just a rebuilt model in general or redesigning the structure itself?

Thanks :) And YES, that damn ball. Working on figuring out what to do with it actually. I really despise it.

Mostly joking, but it's not exactly a high poly object. If you are going to replace the ball, might as well replace the arms and base while you are at it. I don't think it needs anything crazy, but some simple bevelled edges probably wouldn't go astray.

For the ball itself, you could maybe do something like a "cage" type object. An open polyhedral shape.

I was original playing around with punchthru back in v1 to try to get that effect actually. UVs needed work, but certainly possible now.

I wouldn't recommend using transparency. Save yourself the grief and just use geometry. I was thinking something along these lines:

Ball_Open_Polyhedral.thumb.jpg.fb1031c0e35f9e5bf4b825a03e1e5c14.jpg

That's just shy of 1,600 tris. Since it wouldn't need a fancy texture, the UVs wouldn't need to be complex and could be just stuffed into a free corner of the map.
