I was on sscanberra.com and was looking at the diagrams section and came across these (the first of which you're familiar with)http://www.sscanberra.com/files/plans/p ... colour.jpghttp://www.sscanberra.com/files/plans/p ... drawal.jpg
These'll be helpful in helping me make your propellors. I should be able to get them done shortly!
I wish I could find such an abundance or info the Oriana.
I think you gotta work on the curve just a little bit more. Here's what I mean. I think it needs to be more, well,curvy!
For textures, you mean that thing that Axe etc do, baking their textures with shadows on the textures? I can't even do that, so I manually add shadows on my textures (if you've played with my Viking Longship in VSF and looked at the texture files, you'll see what I mean).
Good luck with your textures! I tend to find them quite fun. I made all the textures for my Longship from scratch! You can find tutorials and stuff all over the internet (unless you're like me and prefer to learn by trial and error (for some things) even if it takes longer!)
Btw, nice video! I like the 'homemade' effect with the camera moving around - I think that looks really cool, The music adds some great atmosphere. Cue Captain Ahab... "The white whale!"
