Any plans for more? I don't have any 3D printers near where I live, wonder if you can mail order objects?

Nice! I would really like a Lynx or some Outpost 2 unit 3D printed for my desk :)

Zhall, done any more 3D prints of Outpost things??

Yes you should  :)

And also post the models in a public repository somewhere? That might be suitable for GitHub.

Uh, I don't know about that, Git is not so good with binary files.

It would be great to get all of the Outpost 2 3D models that are around in one place in a public repository, such as on our SVN? Or is SVN not a good idea for this Hooman, should  the SVN be kept mostly for code and Outpost 2 files?

The forum is so old so its full of dead links. I know Fenrisul and others did some great work on 3D models but I wouldn't know where to find them now. It would be great if we had a copy/repository at OPU.

Contains his original models (lowpoly folder), the 3D print-ready tractor, and some random renders I found.

It would be fine to put that in SVN. I've worked at places where large binary files got put in SVN. It generally wasn't a problem. The first copy ate up a bunch of space, but it was quite good at keeping the size of updates small. You have to be careful about how the updates are done though, to make sure it does a proper diff. If content is compressed, that doesn't work out nearly so well though.

Git stores files differently. I've heard it doesn't handle binary files all that well. In theory, the way it can pack multiple objects into a compressed archive, assuming a packed archive is possible, it should be able to get similar storage requirements, but I'm not sure if that happens in practice.

Fenrisul's models are probably not going to suffer ownership issues that would make it not suitable for GitHub. That's largely what I was getting at. Considering there are projects like FreeCiv, I can't imagine there would be any restriction on Fenrisul building and publishing his models. Assuming that Fenrisul is willing to publish them of course. I'm not sure how he feels on that topic.
