Derived from my Reichenberg and still carrying some of it's details but with a fully working Rendering Sequence. There is a pilot inside too but I couldn't use the Reichenberg's tranparency file but he's in there. The skin is largely from the Reichenberg with a white overlay and all colors removed from the plane and a quick Nippon dot replacing the German insignia. Later a proper skin with proper shading will be added but first the model needs to be tweaked so all V1 details are properly adapted to get the model as it should be. Notice that the model has 8 sides, like my Reichenberg, giving it a rounder shape then the stock V1. Couldn't squeeze more out of it due to the model's small size which limits the circumference of a circle polygon. However large planes can use this technique too and may be able to use 10 or 12 sides. VonBeerhofen
8 hours to unravel it's R/S secrets and 8 more to tweak the model into a light fleet/escort cariier. From here the model can be turned into any carrier class or split up into a multipart model. As a single 3DZ it can be a moving interdiction target (not landable) as well as a static target in harbours or alongside the coast. This is just a start as the model will be turned into a 100% model and It's texture will be upgraded soon. VonBeerhofen This picture shows the R/S check of a beached carrier with a few additions already :) The model will be added to PTIV as the new EAWPRO exe has freed a slot for an extra ship.
I'm just displaying a better way of creating 3D models for EAW, the right way, the 100% way. There is no mention of any particular object or model prior to Mr. Jelly's disturbance or after and his reaction is therefore uncalled for. Fact is that nearly 99.9% of everything created has rendering issues except my objects. Ofcourse this causes unintentional pain with those who's models are flawed but such is the price of progress and not a reason to start a flame war.
In the old days people constantly compared old to new if there was an improvement and yes it has caused many casualties. My 3D models are a huge improvement over the old, they're stable, more precise, smaller in filesize and faster rendering and have none of the anomalies which most other 3D models have. I'm not sorry my models are better as I know they can do the same with their models if they're willing to spend the same time on learning what I have learned about EAW's 3D models since january 2000.
The right to criticise is another freedom we've always had in the EAW forum since the beginning of time and has always been seen as a necessity to get the game to a higher level. There is a difference between criticism and attack, the first uses founded comment, the 2nd doesn't. Rotton's remark is unfounded and a clear attack on my skills, if it was founded he's had ample time to tell the public why he thinks the carrier does not resemble a WWII carrier.
Ofcourse Mr. Jelly's initial comment is not some loose observation but meant to hurt and demoralise, the same goes for Rotton's remark which is merely meant to rub it in. I'm sorry you're having a hard time Stratos but I already warned you that this behaviour is not going to stop, I'm a threat to their creations and this is how they deal with threats. To keep in step with Rotton's remark, I haven't said that other models are crap or do not resemble a WWII carrier and as such no attack has been made on anyone. I hope it's clear that I do NOT invade THEIR threads with loose comments or any comment for that matter. I can only advise you to tell these two to take up ANY issues with you so you can deal with them as you see fit, so my threads remain clean and on track. I will ofcourse do the same.
I will keep comparing my models to others as proof that they're better, unless forum rules forbids such, just as others have been doing for over a decade comparing their work with mine and others, claiming superiority, and that goes especially for Rotton and Mr. Jelly who mainly use my work for comparison. That right is not only reserved to a few people but to all. I'm NOT asking people to pick a side or to like my creations, I just do what I think I'm good at and have as much right as anyone to keep doing it in peace and under the same rules as have been accepted since 1998. Anyone is welcome to criticise my work, when unfounded then the joke is on them, not me.
The issue started with finding out that the filenames of my addons were used by Rotton and Mr.Jelly, so I inquired in the previous thread why that was and pointed out possible cross contamination between files and addons with the same name which can potentially harm people's computers. Rotton immediately jumped in to accuse me of poisoning the atmosphere but I was merely inquiring as to why this happened and wether people realised the risk.
Having done more research I found direct links to EAWPRO and an EAWPRO theatre in Mr. Jelly's mediafire account, which are exact and full copies of my work. I confronted Mr. Jelly with the fact that I need to host my own work in order to keep my website and online group going and that his actions were killing their existence and that it's his actions which are actually poisoning the atmosphere. It does not only threaten my group's existence but it ruins my life and love for modding as well and I told him to stop hosting my work.
Subsequently Mr. Jelly showed pictures of EAWPRO in action in his game which was obviously another sledgehammer in my face and a show of utter contempt and tried to proof that his actions are legitimate because EAWPRO has no filemanager. I told him that I didn't think that such made it legitimate at all and told him again to remove my wok and the dowload links I'd found. Mr. jelly then went on that my pictures were unrelated to the subject, so I tested the links and found he had already removed them yesterday but hadn't said so. I went into Mediafire to check his downloads and found that the EAWPRO theatre was still there and wrote my last post.
I'm sorry but I'm fighting for survival trying to keep going with what I used to love doing, but I'm not allowed to. Everything I've tried is met with actions which are meant to push me over the edge, destroy me, my website and addons and I'm tired of it. People who take ownership of my work without conscent is a step too far and slapping me in the face with it is undigestable. With Mr. Jelly using my work to atract online pilots, my group doesn't stand a chance. Their only chance is my creation.
I'm done with my work for EAW, as I feared there's no way I can do what I love in peace and I see no other way out then giving up. Mr. Jelly may have removed EAWPRO from his website but it won't be for long and he'll be waiting for every release I make. He shall not get more then he already has taken and I'll keep whatever I already created for myself and my online group.
I am most sorry to admit defeat, I believed I had a chance to fullfill my dream to create something important but I have nothing more to offer. I'm also very sorry for the community after showing so many beautifull objects and keeping them informed of progress. Survival of the fittest, right? Can't beat the all consuming Filemanager named UAW or OAW which works with everything, even EAWPRO.
I'd appreciate it if you give me a verdict through a PM instead of having me chew on the gloating of the other parties that they finally got their way. As promised I will leave on my own achord and not return. Don't bother showing me the door, I know where it is and I've gone through many, I realise the fight has followed me inhere and I could no longer restrain myself in fear of what's been happening over the past 5 years since Mr. Jelly acquired our unreleased version of EAWPRO by signing up with the Launchpad for one day under the assumed name of Hector.
Don't feel bad about it, I already knew it would come to this and I'll be back in SimHQ in a week where the two subforums were actually realised and neither group are allowed to discuss eachother's work, so perhaps there's still a little chance for me, but the real problem will not go away inspite of that. Wish your forum had gone ahead with it too, then none of this might have happened but EAWPRO would have been assimilated regardless. I wish you good luck with your EAW forum and hope it will still have some sort of a goal. I'll keep an eye on it! Thanks for your hospitality, sorry I couldn't give you more in return.
I find this a bit disturbing, coming from the guy who actually ripped EAWPRO and subsequently handed some of it's contents to his own modders to be incorporated into his version. Recent threads have shown that he's using much more of my creations without seeking permission or giving credit to the originator. In fact he tried to host the ENTIRE EAWPRO release version on his FTP site, a WIP which took me 15+ years to create. VonBeerhofen
