Blender Spaceship Tutorial


Ok, now scenario 2, carried over from the last post. You got this great spacecraft script, so you attach it to a…. cube? Ok, you need a real spaceship to attach it to. So, how we gonna do this? I was looking at spaceship tutorials for blender awhile ago and stumbled across one that uses a ‘discombobulator’ script. So here’s how it works. One: make a low poly ship base to use the discombobulator script on. As seen below:

 

After that’s done, save your scene and go into Blender 2.49, no, I have not gone crazy, let me repeat this. Open blender 2.49, download it if you don’t have it. Open your model. Now, switch the buttons window at the bottom to the scripts window

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Click the ‘scripts’ button, and go under Mesh –> Discombobulator

 

 

 

 

 

 

From here you will see a majority of options, I recommend playing around with these until you come up with something satisfactory. I think these are pretty good settings to use:

 

I’d love to see what you come up with! Feel free to drop me a comment!

Note: I have also made a Unity Webplayer of the spaceship so you can view it in realtime, use the arrow keys to move, and the scroll-wheel on your mouse to zoom. Enjoy! P.S: you may need to download the plugin to view it!

  1. Aw, this was a really nice post. In idea I would like to put in writing like this additionally – taking time and actual effort to make a very good article… but what can I say… I procrastinate alot and by no means seem to get something done.

  2. A lot of thanks for every one of your work on this site. Debby loves setting aside time for investigations and it’s really simple to grasp why. We all hear all relating to the compelling medium you convey priceless strategies through the website and as well strongly encourage response from people on this area of interest while our favorite girl has always been discovering so much. Enjoy the rest of the year. You’re performing a stunning job.

  3. I am not able to open the spaceship into blender 2.49. i cant find it in the open menu and when i do “open with” it just makes a new scene. I use a mac. Do you know what is the problem?
