Hello All

I once came across a website once which used to host the HW2 models for free download.
It was the Lightwave group, which was a modeling website with a forum, gallery, downloads and apps / tools.

The file was hosted, it was a zip and contained the models, textures and files from HW2.

Anybody come across it or have it?

Search google for homeworld 2 paper models.

My question doesn't need answering, I've found a program to get the files / models out of homeworld 2, modding now!

papercraft website has a list of paper models- however their just from the vanilla hw2 game- would be nice to see some of the complex models in the real world? especially the modified fighter from "hwat0040" and the unified hiigaran fleet.
ive made four of five so far nothing special but interesting- taiidan scout- good one to start with.

Thought i might add a few bits of info:
model made using Pepakura designer 3 -easy to use and tutoral found on site.
poster made by copying "NorseHound's" winning design of Homeworlds number one fan competition entry= i just found a version that was quite big- copied to my computer and kept on hitting the printscreen button for each section of the poster image- printed out and stuck together- not quite perfect but very good!
the big poster i made from using Rasterbator software- free download i found on net- easy to set up and use- best for slightly black and white images- coloured ones come out a bit pixelly? it prints out the big image specially for A4 sized paper printer designs or pictures- no size limit- so easy to blow up anything!

New one i just completed this afternoon- the glue isn't even dry yet!-
again i downloaded this one off the net- and simply cut out and stuck together- give it a 8 out of 10 for difficulty.

Haven't seen any models from complex as yet- only the vanilla hw1, 2 and cataclysm, i've downloaded quite a few bits and pieces from ericks website- alot of stuff not really my kind of thing but interesting enough.

thats the offical Homeworld paper models archive website- not sure if the address is right?...
At the moment i trying to build a M41-A Pulse Rifle - and now i waiting for more colour cartridges for my printer- (ran out printing out the 24 pages for part 1 of 3) talking about making me bonkers resizing it! Confused Adobe document- ?
Papercraft is another one, quite a few out there if you have time searching for them- but actually building them- that takes time!
Also try any paper above 210grams anything lower and it goes all wrinkley when the pva glue saturates the paper- and finger prints come out in the models surface.
I found if you look around the pepakura software- you can find hidden lines to fold on the model that are not highlighted on the actual design- also i would enlarge the model to A4 size as best as possible as it makes the glueing tabs big enough to handle and the models are usually about 25cm long- well the ones above are roughly, except the white one, that was 35-40 cm long.
The software also allows for splitting up joined up bits into smaller to handle bits, and this allows for some of the more complicated models to be made bigger- tutorials are everywhere on the websites- i've learned loads! reinforcements, enlargements- but yet to master how to put a model directly from game to paper?
I think but not sure that nearly every model from the vanilla games are out there- however i find that sometimes people often post multiple colour schemes for fighters etc, so there are choices out there....

i was actually refering to the tutorial on how to physically extract the complex models from the .big file.. it tell you how to convert the models from there into pepakura ones...

and as for my models i have unfortunatelly also run out of ink too Sad i have one of two pages for my taiidan destroyer Rolling Eyes

I don't have a version of photoshop that works on vista- thus the tutorial is next to useless for me- unless i splash out on a 90 bit of software- so far iv'e used "GIMP" it came in a mod for HW- i think it was used for some type of modeling in 3d but its far too complicated to work out fully- but the photo part is fine and the effects bit is as good as photoshop- so its free and why worry about it.
However if theres anyone out there that can do the stuff for us- and update the sites mentioned then everyone can have a go building a model in the real world, especially if it comes from complex or unified HF- of which some would be a real test of patience puting together.
when anyone completes a model you should post it on here and tell us of any hang ups in construction.
the yellow scout- easy no problems about a 5 out of 10
the blue fighter- big one- one slight problem- the bits need to have finger holes in them in order to be able to get the outer edges to stick and join the completed bits together- you'll have to see the plans to understand- oh and the engines don't match up either on the undersides so glueing them on is problematic. 8/10
the blue scout= fairly difficult- the nose section is well supported but the tiny angles on the face need to all be scored first- 9 out of 10 for that one.
the sensor one -star shape easy again 2 out of 10 actually i'd try that one first! one could learn alot from tabs and glueing, printing out and scoring techniques.
and dont even try the grey one- the top doesnt work- i have to improvise on glueing that one. 8/10
the black and white fighter- ok i guess, but the underneath doesn't really work on the bottom wing- the front edges of the bits don't quite match up- again the top back wing, the back edge is far too overly complicated to stick together and the engine part has a hidden line needed to be scored too- but it looks so cool...i'd do a few before trying that one.
Another one not pictured was a puddle jumper from stargate atlantis- now that one was a good one! small and complicated- took me about a week to build but very strong indeed. alot of curves involved. hopefully the M41 will fairly strong too.

can i ask what kind of paper/card do you use?? im geussing its card by the looks of it but i couldnt tell very well

oh id rate the taidan destroyer about 7 out of 10, some of the bits are tricky and fidely (e.g. the antenae) but other bits (e.g. the main body) are relatively simple

Ordinary 250gram white card for home projects- 10 sheets for 1.89 from HobbyCraft and an ordinary printer cartridges TO26 and TO27 (though the colour of the images due to printer and computer settings should be the same for most older printers- new ones tend to bend the paper round instead of feed in the back and slide out the front types- best for thickish card- as it doesn't jam up) either that or i cheated once- cereal packet card, lego box card and sketch pad card-(a bit thin-) all preprint on ordinary paper and then stick on card ready to be cut out- various ways of doing it- without the expense. Often find loo rolls good for strengthening insides- just make sure the ring shape doesn't come out on the surface by handling it too much when glue is wet.
You should post an image of your destroyer on here- dark background and bright model- indoor lights hide all the cockups- also make sure the image is small- this site doesn't like big pictures.
I think from now on i might put a small object in the picture to give a sense of scale- perhaps a lego brick or something?
Have you tried the poster software- quite impressive results- but you need a fair amount of time to mount up the pictures in order and make up the entire image- plus a lot of space to do it in- amazing what one can do with a prit stick, a few pieces of printed paper and some spare time....
