Ideally the remaining 3do models would be replaced. They are fairly low quality and harder to work with. They aren't completely terrible so this is not urgent and requires modeling work (scarce commodity).

Here's the list:

Currently used models of used units:

  • shiptorpraider.3do Hunter (Torpedo boat)
  • Armtick.3do Imp (EMP bomb)
  • roost.3do Chicken roost (Chicken spawner)
  • noruas.3do Ultimatum (Anti-strider)
  • subtacmissile.3do Scylla (Tactical missile sub)
  • ARMcybr.3do Likho (Heavy bomber)
  • armartic.3do Faraday (EMP turret)
  • armcrabe.3do Crab (Heavy spider)
  • corgrav.3do Newton (Gravity turret)

Models of unused units

  • shiptransport.3do Surfboard (transport/fireplatform ship)

Unused models

  • lazer.3do Old Starlight
  • armcom5.3do Old Strike Commander size clone
  • armcom4.3do Old Strike Commander size clone
  • armcom.3do Old Strike Commander size clone
  • armcom2.3do Old Strike Commander size clone
  • armcom1dark.3do Old Strike Commander size clone
  • armcom3.3do Old Strike Commander size clone

Armcom\d? is not used anywhere to my knowledge, has a replacement in strikecom adn should not have been counted.

Corgrav and shiptransport are also removed as units (no model replacement).

corgrav lives as turretimpulse.
shiptransport technically still exists. Nobody would probably care if it disappeared though.

For units that actually don't exist: /dev/null is a valid replacement in such case.

Oh, i thought corgrav was the gravity strider.

Is there a more preferred file format?

I would recommend Collada (.dae) initially. It can be converted to Spring's own s3o format once the model is finalized.

Some unit name translations (for currently existing, non-hidden units):

  • noruas.3do - Ultimatum
  • corgrav.3do, corgrav_dead.3do - Newton (and wreck).
  • armcrabe.3do, armcrabe_dead.3do - Crab (and wreck)
  • Armtick.3do, Armtick_dead.3do - Imp (emp bomb) (and wreck)
  • ARMcybr.3do - Likho (heavy bomber)
  • shiptorpraider.3do - Hunter (torpedo boat)
  • subtacmissile.3do - Scylla (tactical missile sub)
  • armartic.3do - Faraday (emp turret)
  • roost.3do - Chicken roost.

lazer.3do seems to also have been an outlier (is it paleo-starlight?) adn can be removed.

This is quite a useless list. The unused models should be culled. There should be a distinction between units that need redesigned models and those that just need a technical update. I prefer technical updates because much less can go wrong and less work is required of me.

I've updated the list to clearly separate unused things from everything else.

I don't think any of the models in the "actually used* list fully require a redesign. However i also think that all of them could benefit from a redesign as long as the new design is good.
