I created this RTT model for my Star Wars Galactic Battlegrounds mod, but I'm wondering if anybody here might have a use for it:

The model was built in Sketchup, and I'm not entirely sure what sort of steps I'd have to go through to make it Battlefront-ready, but I can upload it somewhere if anybody thinks they can make it work.

I'd be happy to convert the sketchup scene to .msh, but I don't know how to implement it as a vehicle.

I'm sure I could get it working in game, and I could really use a vehicle of that type for my current project (there aren't too many non-walker troop transports around). Let me know, I'm happy to help with this.

Here is the Sketchup model for the RTT. I've also made the Rebel ULAV, which can be downloaded here.

I've tried to slice out as many unnecessary edges as I could from both models. Galactic Battlegrounds is a sprite-based game, so I didn't really have efficiency or polygon counts in mind when I originally built them.

SWBF2 can actually handle models with really high poly counts.

Alright, so I got that RTT model by Dallows finished.

Here's the download for anyone who wants it. I'll do the other model soon.

Note: I didn't do any animations and you might have to rescale the model.

that was one hell of a lot of polys

Sweet. I'll start working on an odf.
@kingpin - I noticed the textures included with the mesh are not targas. I could convert them but that would require the mesh to be retextured, yes?

Here's the finished model:

And the wireframes:

1024 polys. I now need to create the scope meesh for the "Homing Shot" variant.

After seeing the Battlefront II DICE Trailer, I wanted to make an Imperial Special Forces kitbash using stock assets and some Free Radical assets. Not exactly, Inferno Squad but inspired by them.

I do plan on attaching a Seeker Droid on the back of the unit for added effect.

Built myself a T-21. I'm also planning on doing the T-21B as well.

Looks great! The modding community really needs a t21b, at least I know I do. :D
