  • B5 CGI models

    Over the last couple of weeks I have been to several B5 sites and noticed many with cgi models. Now then I meant to bookmark these sites, and thought I did but cant find them now

    So what Im looking for is a site that has some top quality 3d studio Starfurys and jumpgates on thne same page, I thought it might have been firstones but can only find the excellent B5 cgi model, but Im sure I seen the above B5 model with the Starfurys and jumpgates on the same page, so this must have been some other site.

    To see the fine B5 CGI model, go here. http://b5cgi.firstones.com/

    wonder if anyone can help?

    Your first best hope for these
    models you seek, should be
    http://forums.firstones.com

    As Sanfam said once elsewhere, some members are "renderfiends", there's people there that should know of sites.

        I found that site with Blender Models the other day, maybe it helps: http://www.b5-blender.com/models.html

        There is no Jumpgate though 8-/

            This site has just about all the available B5 meshes (canon and otherwise) in 3DS format,

            http://homepage.eircom.net/~bcelestia/

            they host them as well so there are no broken links.

              Thank you for those links, the best b5 model is on the firstones site, very complex, now to find the time to do it justice!.

              Out of interest, the last link given by Number6, if you download the program called Celestia, homepage given in the link, you will have a whole solar system of b5 spacecraft in seconds..

              how?

              Download and install Celestia a great space sim if you can work out how to use it. Im sure its more useful than I can work out anyway.

              Next, download any ship from number6s link but you must of course get the B5 station/Epsilon 3 first as thats the main link to the system. unzip the folder and copy the main b5 dir into the extras folder, this is called Babylon 5, not the babylon_5 folder you first unzip, its inside this folder. So this would be the path to put the Babylon 5 folder: C:\Program Files\Celestia\extras\

              Now start Celestia, goto the menu Navigation and select goto object, now input this text, Eps Eri you will goto that star, now goto the Navigation menu again and choose Solar System Browser, you will see epsilon 3, babylon 5 and whatever other models you put into this folder, note you get a maintainance bot and thunderbolt in the main b5 model folder, the Thunderbolt tracks around B5.

              Note also its very easy to get lost and move in to close with the sun behind the model everything looks too black! if this happens re-centre with the menu. try tracking shots or other selections in the menu, some great realtime shots can be had, also you can speed up or slow down by 10x in the menu, very useful.
