Kraken-UVmapping by Greywolf-Starkiller Kraken-UVmapping by Greywolf-Starkiller
Still much detailing to do, and I still need to model the laser cannons under her bow.
Most Imperium ships have them, even the survey cruisers, though they are smaller
than those of the capital ships.

Anyway, I figured to get started UVmapping what I've done so far. I do need some
info however. Anyone know the length of the Mercury class. Modo says this one is
just over 4 km in length, and I'm sure Peg wasn't QUITE that big.

Also if anyone know a texture resource for doing the hulls of BIG ship, please
let me know. Many of the sites I frequented when I was still online are gone.

Here's a screen cap of Kraken with the UVmapping on her hammerhead armour
plates almost done.

Not sure how accurate Wiki is but it's saying just under 2K at 1789, several other sources are saying the same give or take a couple hundred meters.…

Yup, just got back to my sister's place and checked it out. The two wikis I checked, and a size comparison pic I found pegs her length at around 1780 meters.
I'll need to reduce Kraken's size by just over 50 percent since I've got her about 2200 meters too long. I wasn't concerned about width or height since they'll
scale down with length when I correct her size. Know anything about Aztec Textures? Someone suggested I use aztecs to texture her, but the only refs and
tuts I found were Trek related.

The only thing I know about The Aztec textures is that they are various sized squares/rectangles arranged in patterns that seem maze like with varying shades of grey. =) I googled "Aztec texture starship" and also got a lot of trek stuff.
