Hi Everybody,

After seeing some of the amazing new OPTs that have come out recently, it got me thinking about trying to help out again. I do 3D computer animation as a hobby using Lightwave, Poser, and Real Flow among other software. Truth be told, I'm not that good at it, but I do what I can.

Back in 2015, I thought about perhaps being able to contribute to the XWAUpgrade in some way. I looked at some of the OPTs that were not done yet, but most were too complicated I felt, until I stumbled into the very simple Pressure Tank OPT that was essentially a big propane tank in space. I brought the OPT into Lightwave and took a look and saw that it was very simple and thought I could do better.

I created a tank opt and got it working in the game and as far as I could tell at the time, everything seem to be working on it. I don't remember if I put the docking point in so it could be docked with and towed, but anyway...

When the modeling was done, I started trying to make some decent textures for it. Now, I have photoshop, and other graphic and drawing programs that are very capable, but I am no artist. Despite weeks of effort I could not get the textures to look decent.

I also took a shot at Denarie's Casino and still have the OPTs for both that I created. If anybody is interested in taking a crack at texturing them, I'll post them here.

Thanks, :)

Okay, here they are. I hope somebody finds them useful.

Cheers! :D

Here is the Fuel tan. It has the last version I created in Op-tech, and the last version I actually got into the game.

Here are two different versions of Denari's Casino. The only real difference is the design of the side towers. Enjoy.

Hi Everybody,

Hope you all had a good holiday. Just checking in. I see that tank and casino models have both been downloaded over 20 times. Does anybody think they can come up with textures good enough for them to be in the XWAUpgrade project?

Thanks for your interest,
