I'd like to thank all the X-wing Alliance Upgrade team for your excellent work upgrading the crafts for the best game ever released.

However, I'd like to ask a question about the TIE/ad starfighter: don't you find the TIE Avenger a little squashed compared to the other TIEs?
I'm looking at "The Stele Chronicles" in particular, where the cockpit module of the TIE Avenger is almost identical to that of the TIE Interceptor, except for those lateral warhead launchers.
I have a feeling the TIE Avenger from XWAU doesn't resemble that TIE/Ad from "The Stele Chronicles".
Is it a different craft?

We can't stop you posting pointless topics every 5 minutes or resurrecting long dead topics (though that is frowned upon), but if you really want to contribute to this project, first don't treat this forum as you own personnel message board, then learn how to model craft for yourself.

Then you'll have the exact craft you where hoping to find or you've read about, instead of pointing out what is wrong with the craft we have created, everyone is entitled to there own interpretation!!!

The TIE Avenger has always been all over the place in terms of its depiction.

Heck, even in the game that introduced them there's no single accurate version.

In this screen of a cutscene it looks like a normal TIE:

In this it does not:

Also, keep in mind this is XWA Upgrade. The default TIE Avenger in XWA is just as squashed as the upgraded one.
And if you want my opinion, I prefer it that way. Makes it a bit more unique.
