Hey all,

Been a big fan of Freelancer since it first came out. Never got into online play much but loved the game none the less.

I'm a Hard Surface 3D modeler and texture artist and am looking too flesh out my portfolio over at www.pectabyte.com

I'm looking to model new custom ships, Environments stations, planets etc. Of course my services are totally free. All I need is a little direction and concept art.

Feel free to reply to this thread or shoot me an email over at [email protected]

Just my luck that someone like you would drop into the metaphorical lap of TSP when my search for the very thing you offer has ended.

Nice stuff on the website, I'm sure you won't have trouble finding someone to help out.

Welcome to The Starport. Always good to see Artists coming aboard capable of graphics more advanced than games are used to expose. Have a nice stay.

Impressive work!

Been a while since I've last seen someone join a modding scene with an actual professional background in what they aim to do. ^^

General advice would simply be to not join too small projects. Probably doesn't sound all too nice in terms of adivce but it saves you a lot of frustration / demotivation when those projects (as it sadly often happens) go down the drain. Especially with the currently small player base of Freelancer that's an increasing problem.

Aside from that, as I understand, there is a general lack of hitbox creators around and even if that's most likely not the most interesting thing to do it would be a starting point to look into some tutorials regarding the matter (or really tutorials about FL modding in general).

EDIT: I just saw that you've worked with the UDK and Unity. Can you tell us a little more about it and how each would be suited to create a Freelancer Clone in particular? There's been a topic about the matter here: http://the-starport.net/freelancer/fo ... php?topic_id=3779&forum=6

Hi Pectabyte.

As it happens, myself and a friend of mine have just recently started working on a new mod called Freelancer Legacy. Our concept relies for a substantial part on input from the community. You can read more about the who's and why's in the introduction topic here on Starport.

We are still in the very first stages of setting up the mod, so your generous offer could not be timed any better. I'm pretty sure that it can add in a very positive way to our new project.

If you are interested, I will contact you shortly to discuss exactly how you can help us out.
You are welcome to join our brand new forum, this may help with sharing thoughts back and forth. If you decide to register, I will create a separate section to discuss matters further.

Thanks again for your kind offer, people like yourself are invaluable to the community.

Forgive me if I'm wrong, but I don't think the guy is looking to join any teams or projects. I think he just wants to make models and what not to add to his portfolio.

A bit like Sol used to do, you hand in a concept or artwork and if he likes the job then he'll model it and make it available.

He's potentially a great asset to anyone who can feed him great ideas that can make both his talents and your mod look good. Mutual benefits. By the looks of the material on his site, he's pretty bloody good to. Ask him quick before Lancer does a runner with him! Sorry LS, couldn't resist!

Hahaha love it, I could always use the help but he offered it to the FL community. Didn't want to interfere with that

I've got a feeling the almighty overlords might have already snagged him.

dunno about other games, but i doubt pectabyte offers his work for appearance in the Freelancer game only.

Thats exactly right. I'm looking for teams and modders who can hand me clear and distinct concept art to turn into your game assets. Working fulltime means im not able to join teams and be involved in every nuance and detail of mods.
