That DS file you sent me is not in OPT or DXF format. The file extenstion is <B>.rar</B>, which is an extension I don't recognize, and I don't believe I have the means of opening or editing it.

.rar is a package format like .zip. Download WinRar from the net to open the file.

@Battledog: Well I really don't care who thought of it first, I just remember it being mentioned at the ICP :(

<B>Rich</B>, I'm looking forward to the Hover Train models. As soon as you are done, I will OPT them right away. :)<P>OK, <B>Ace</B>, I'll try what you said. :)<P><B>Master Qui-Gon</B>, I haven't done a deflection tower OPT. The one in the Yavin shipset pictures is just the Derylin Platform on the Death Star OPT. I have the model that <B>Vince</B> sent me, but I haven't OPTed it yet. I'm waiting to see what materializes out of the Death Star surfaces.<P>Also, I haven't looked at the DS surface you sent yet. To show pics in the forum, you need a place on the web to upload your images to. Then you link to your picture in your post using UBB code.

OK, I got the DS surface file unzipped. The surface isn't bad and would suffice if nothing else is made. However, the buildings are a bit high, big and more scattered then I'd like them to be. Something more like the pic that Vince posted would be ideal. Beggars can't be choosers though, so I'll work with whatever I get.<P>We're you able to extract surface models with the trench and exhaust port? If so, please send them to me.

Don't worry about the deflection tower. I'll OPT and scale it for whatever surface we use. Yes, please send the other surfaces with the trench and exhaust port. Hopefully, there will be one surface with a trench (so we can line them up for a long trench) and another surface with the exhaust port to put at the end of the trench.

OK, I got the file and it is much improved. I restitched the textures, and tiled the textures on the larger faces so the surface looks much better than it did. I also trimmed some "junk" off the edges so the surfaces tile without any overlap. I'm looking forward to the trench.<P>Also, is the exhaust port an actual hole? It needs to be so a torpedo can go through the hole and hit a container or some other object that can be used to trigger the chain of events leading to the hyper buoy and seeing Hernan's Death Star OPT blow up behind you.

OK, here are some Death Star Surface pics...<P> :) <B>Master Qui-Gon</B>, you'll probably notice the increase in texture detail on the large flat areas. Thanks for doing this!

Each DS surface is about 20x20 km, so you can probably use a higher resolution than with the planet/moon surfaces. I haven't tested this though. :)

The Exhaust port is an actual hole...You'll see the trench by the end of the week. Could you send me back the ds opt. You did a great job of cleaning it up.I would like to see it.

Master Qui-Gon, I sent you the updated DS surface OPT, but it kept bouncing back as undeliverable. Do you have another E-mail address I can try? I'm still looking forward to the trench and exhaust port. :)

Abolisher, these look like replacement textures, since I believe you just took the texes from the gun and pasted them on. Correct me if I'm wrong :). Great work :).

All I did was re-stitch and tile the textures that were already on the OPT that Qui-Gon sent me. I'm not sure what "gun" textures you are talking about. Do you mean the laser turrets I textured for vince?
