Imperial class star destroyer template remastered by SEACKER

Author File Description
File Details
Clone Campaigns required?: Yes
Since I got a second chance on heavengames, I decided to really create something monumental for my come back, and yes, a star destroyer template doesn't get more monumental than that (unless you manage to create an entire real size death star template which I find impossible :P).

This template took me nearly two months, specially since I had to redo it several times, the reason are the perspective errors this game has which few of you know, if you connect a series of hubs, (space, naboo, asteroid, etc.) from the upper corner of the screen all the way down in a straight line, and look closely, you'll notice that each hub is a little lower than the one preceding it, so as you know this means there is a perspective error, which if im correct is what makes eye candy possible, specialy 3-D eye candy, the study of this game perspective error is what has made me so masterful on 3-D tricks.

But unlike most of the times, the perspective error in the game worked against me, since as for the people who have tried making a star destroyer template, or a capital ship template in general, know that you can't go an entire straight line with capital ships, because if you do, your capital ship (specially star destroyers) will end up looking like a disfigured square from afar, or a gigantic metalic kite shaped mess.

Then the shape was just the beggining, try creating a suspended platform that holds both the "bridge" and the "shield generators", on top of strange rectangular shaped platforms that go even higher and higher (according to ralph's original designs, if you know who ralph is of course), again, the off perspective worked against me, so as you know, this template is the one that took me the most time and dedication, I had to redo it three times.

After managing to get a perspective "harmony" I worked as hard as I could to make the star destroyer as realistic as possible, and from my experience there is no way without mods that you could get it more realistic than what I did (not to brag or anything) I worked entire days only on the aspect of the bloody ship.

Oh, and forgive me for the gigantic map, I thought I would need the space, in the end my calculations failed, math is not my thing :P; and pasting it into a smaller map is kinda messy, not that it will happen to you, it's probably my very old and glitchy game's fault.

Be warned, the bloody thing is massive, and extremely detailed, I wasn't thinking on low-res users, so if your 3D card catches on fire, don't blame it on me.

If you do get to use this template, please give me credit, since I almost literally burned my eyes to achieve this template.

Oh, one more thing and I won't bug anymore, please, please do review, and make them real detailed reviews, don't make bryl come all the way down here. thanks


Because of the mayor downer points the template suffered when reviewd, I recreated the template from scratch, most areas that suffered of a down point where treated and fixed as better as I could, since as I already explained, this type of template is not easy to do, and if it suffers of any imperfections it will be even more difficult to fix them due to many in game factors working against me, if the new and improved template still doesn't meet your needs, I recommend downloading another template or better yet a mod, since theres nothing more I can do to do this even more realistic than it already is, and for the ones that still want the old star destroyer, I placed both the new and the old star destroyer just in case.

Simply amazing. Since this is an updated review, I planned on making a more detailed review. But I literally couldn't find a flaw. Looks absolutely amazing SEACKER. Perfect in every way. I even noticed that back, slide type thing on the back!
