Class 1 Drone Template by gpsc Class 1 Drone Template by gpsc
So I put things off until I have a reason to do them. Since an updated template for the Class 1 drone was requested, I spent the past several hours designing one. This is a completely new model from the one that I assembled 2 years ago [link] This one should be more friendly to assemble. This model actually is based on the Class 1 Drone seen briefly in Descent 3, not Descent 1. So, there are subtle differences in the shape. All textures are modified from textures designed by the D2X-XL team [link] They didn't create a texture for the Class 1 Drone, or a texture with red eyes, so I took both upon myself :D As always, if you assemble the model I'd like ot see it :)

Worked great!! Thanks for this! May I ask, how did you make it?

oh I still have an old version up it appears. I guess I never finished and uploaded the one I was working on with better gluing tabs... at least it's still easier than that medium lifter. anyway, the one in the picture with the guide-bot was made from a completely different template. FOr this one, I extracted the model from Descent 3 because the geometry was better. For the textures I applied the high res textures from the D2X-XL project to the model, but that messed up the eyes, so after I unwrapped it in Pepakura, I impoted into either GIMP or Fireworks I forget which and I overlaid the eyes, also from the D2X-XL pack.

well I made my own using this template, the only problem I came across was lack of attachment method... which I came up with an idea that sucked horribly, lol. maybe if I make another in the future I shall add tabs and slots to it so its easier to tape.

very cool looking shape to it too 8D here's the one I made. :3 [link]

I absolutely love descent and its critters. so this thing I will cherish <3

That is an unfortunate flaw of my template. The medium lifter you see assembled in my gallery (I didn't make that template) has the same problem. I added caps to the open faceas but my hard drive crashed and I lost the work. :(
My guide bots glue together much better if you want to do another one!

Actually,my computer is now dead.
I am now resorting to using my parents.

I think DA somehow is infected with viruses too since the warnings only come up when I am on here T^T

I got a virus the one time I tried using dA on Internet Explorer... not sure if the'rs a relaitonship. never had the issue using Firefox... could be coincidence though. But I really miss the mightiest mouse :P

I think that's exactly what happened with me.
I will be using Firefox if I can ever get my computer fixed. It's not looking too good right now though.
