Hmm. This has inspired me to start a Buck Rogers total conversion. Who wants in?
You know, when I first saw that old turret I actually thought the exact same thing.

I really like the turret with the textures BTW.

It looks fine. It also kind of looks like a face. It will shoot lasers out of its eyes, and the saucer on top is a brain bucket. :) But it is pretty good.

Turrets are all on now. But I may have overdone it a bit on those multiparts... 5.3k polies for a twin-barrel, 3.3k polies for a single-barrel, resulting in a total detail0 polycount of a whopping 101k. Perhaps it's not a bad idea to remove some of the smaller details...

Anyway, before I start mapping, you can all take a look at it yourself. Download from Mediafire or our own FTP. The archive contains the .blend file and a POF (just so everyone can open it; it won't work in-game). Take a good look at it, and discuss here what you like/dislike. I know that there's still room for improvement ;)

PCS2 protip: In untextured (surface) mode, it won't lag as much.

ARRGGHH, too many pollies! Can't view properly, it lag modelviewer!

Please reduce the number of polies! They need to come down dramatically!

And lots of duplicate textures I see too.
