    UPDATED (4/19/06):

    Added team colors to the unit, by adding a FX.nif file.


    UPDATED (4/06/06):

    I've improved the wings on the Interceptor, added better ion engines, added more textures, and attached more animations to the unit. The polygon count is now 1156.

    I used the origional Jet Fighter's animations, so that is what you should point to in the <KFM> tag in the XML file.


    OLD POST: Here's the TIE Interceptor now, modified from the TIE Fighter I posted earlier today. I just stuck new wings on the Fighter's cockpit. The Interceptor's wings are a lot more complex, so the polygon count is higher at 1220.

    The TIE Interceptor is a greatly improved fighter craft over the TIE/LN. It's faster, has improved visibility for the pilot, and has greater firepower from the wing-mounted blasters.

    UPDATED PICS:

    I have a couple other units I want to make first, but I'm going to make a few more TIE variations soon. I'm planning on doing the TIE Avenger, TIE Defender, and probably the TIE Bomber too. :scan:

    Thanks for nice comments everyone. :)

    Yeah, I'll probably do some rebel fighters in the near future. When I get around to it, the X-Wing would be first on the list. I just want to do the Imperial ships first, because I like them more. :p

    Heh, yeah I used the Avenger name so not to confuse people about which TIE Advanced I was going to make. As I don't have any intention of making Vader's TIE Advanced x 1 at the moment. I'm going to make the production model that they nicknamed Avenger.

    The model is not really meant to be used as a ground unit like the gunship. I made it to be used as an aircraft, like the Jet Fighter or Bomber.

    the model should still function as a gunship (or other land unit), it just won't be very high off the ground as you noticed.
