    UPDATED (4/19/06):

    Added team colors to a couple of panels on the wings and cockpit hatch. Also, I added another texture to the wings.

    OLD POST: This is my last TIE fighter variation for now, the TIE Bomber. The TIE Bomber is used by the Empire as a surface assault craft, where orbital bombardment would be impossible or overkill. For more info see this page: TIE Bomber

    I've been playing around with the nif viewer after reading through Rabbit, White's great tutorial again. And using it, I've attached the Stealth Bomber's animations to this model.

    So, to install this unit with all its animations correctly, use the Stealth Bomber's animation in the <KFM> tag when you add the unit to the CIV4ArtDefines_Unit.xml file.

    UPDATED PICS:

    Now that I finished all the TIE fighters I had planned, I'll start in on some Rebel fighters soon. :scan:

    Thanks everyone. :)

    The toy I used as a reference is blue, and IIRC the bombers in Empire Strikes Back were blue too. Though I could be wrong about the movie, it's been a while since I've seen it last.

    Also, it's the same shade I used for the Defender and Avenger to make them look a bit more different than the grey TIEs I made.

    Looking at the star wars database site the tie bomber was indeed blue, a bit lighter as your version might be possibly, but blue, and ehm, grey.. And ow, white too :p

    So in fact... There's no set color i guess as long as its either blue, grey or white :p

    Sweet model though :)
