RE-23 Stinger Light Railgun Emplacement (FULL HD) by Duskie-06 RE-23 Stinger Light Railgun Emplacement (FULL HD) by Duskie-06
Hello viewers!

I would so love to introduce this awesome weapon to you!

I created this model while designing something bigger, which is known as the IC41 Illusive Craft (next model), because it is equipped with two of these emplacements. Must as well render the emplacements first because they would be too small to be seen by the time the whole craft comes out! Oh! And stay tuned for the craft too! :D

I also gave a whitish ambient to the image as I think it makes the emplacement stand out better! I also have another version without the whitish ambient, which I think also looks good! Must as well show you the best one! :D

Oh! And feel free to download this if you like it!
Hope you like it! :D

When rail guns go so far that they can be effective against a swarm of infantry I don't wanna know.

Oh! I completely forgot! I'm going to be making the guns twice as big, considering that they're going on a four kilometer battcruiser. I'm not gonna draw it out or anything, but I may tweak the name around some, if you don't mind. Credit for the orginal idea will still be given, though.

Tailgaters must learn their lesson of getting too close to the vehicles ahead of them!

Quite impressive model for sketchup. Is this a remote controlled armament or does a person man it? I'm curious what you will make the vehicle look like, that goes with this. Considering the level of detail for just the railgun, the vehicle might be astounding...

Duskie-06 Featured By Owner Mar 15, 2015  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Aww thank you! xD

These emplacements can be switched between manual and auto control from the bridge of the ship they are attached to.

Yes! The vehicle is quite detailed, until to the point it slowed my computer down. It's quite bad now actually, so I had to design the components in a separate file one by one :(

Mann-of-LaMancha Featured By Owner Mar 15, 2015  Hobbyist Digital Artist
I've been thinking of doing a system that would allow greater details on a broader scale that might be of help to you. What you would do is create all your detailed objects, then the part that they would mount to. This is the important part... you have to make each of them, as singular components, put them on a layer, then turn off the layer and move on to the next component.

This is the tricky part, then you have to export (however you render the images) each piece individually, BUT you have to do it from the same reference point. If you save the intended view point as your last view, you would be able to open sketchup, export the next component, close SU and render it. then move on to the next component, and so on. It's tricky because you have to then create a mask to filter out everything except the intended component. Then, after all the rendered images are made, put them all together as layers of one image.

In affect, a sort of green screen rendering. I haven't been successful in rendering with a green screen/mask, but you might have better luck...?

I advise making them into components, because that allows you to make duplicates of them in the same file but keep file size low. Also, there are times you will want to have more than one component layer turned on at once (to check sizing, relationship to each other, etc), and if they weren't components, joined pieces might become lost...

You do know that by putting components on a layer then hiding it, greatly reduces processing time/load, right?

Don't forget, keeping the computer cooled is essential to longer computer life. If you have a laptop, it's easy to put your hand on the mouse/keyboard area and see how hot it feels. Slightly warm is normal, but if it's almost too hot to touch, you need to keep it cooled somehow (try to avoid dousing with water). Personally, I use a personal desk fan, set on low, pointed across the front to aid cooling and prop up the laptop on a couple of pencils to increase air flow around the laptop. It's critically important to not aim a fan into a computer's exhaust fan. Doing this has improved my computer's capacity to handle larger files.
It's also helps if you don't run anything else while running a rendering program (like music/video).

Sorry if some of my suggestions seem remedial.

Another A class model. Dose it have a cockpit? These things would also be fun in a game where you can throw your opponent I to stuff, like those pointy things on the turret.
I'm thinking the next thing in this line of design is an implacement with the control cabin on one side, like a construction vehicle or even the mass driver in the end of Halo Reach.

Wow! Thanks so much for your comment! :D

Yeah! I do agree that these things will be very fun if they were included in a game! Glad you liked the pointy things on the turret too, I think they are the main reason why the turret looks so cool!

A cabin by the side is an awesome idea! But this time, this turret is used on ships like frigates, where you control them from the ship's bridge! :D

So glad you liked it so much! :D

Psss... here's a sneak peek:

One of my next model is the M92A3 Gargantua Heavy Railgun Tank! It's level of detail is gonna be 20% more complex than the Behemoth, but slightly smaller in size relative to it.
