Milestones, Teasers and Trailers.

Welcome to the shipyards. Here you can discuss how to re-calibrate the positronic neutron flow to double power to the aft shields. Or you can discuss how to add new ships, new maps, new scenarios, new modules, etc. have fun!

That's a clever-looking sprite; I like it. What size hull is it intended to be?

Its a cruiser, but I've also made a frigate that is similar.

Thanks!

Also here is a better picture of those first ships I posted, and a new frigate that is similar to the cruiser I made:

I like this set of ships you've put together. They're very utilitarian but with a flair we haven't seen in any of the other "minimalist" ships.

I'll admit its a bit of an ego boost to get postive feedback on these things from people who have made some pretty amazing stuff for GSB....

And thanks!

Also I see you've made full use of the location thing :P

I second that opinion, Ace. TheMightyCat11's sprites are generally stripped-down without looking skeletal, and that isn't overly easy to do without either going too far with the effect or not taking it far enough.

One of my favorites is the medium-sized, trimaran-hull ship with the yellow sides; three of them appear at the right of the image posted just above here.

MightyCat, please tell us a little bit about the overall theme of the mod that these hulls are going to appear in. :D You've got some interesting material, I'm sure.

The Race that will use these ships are a warrior race who don't care much for the life of their soldiers, they care about winning. For instance the ships at the front of the fleet function like shields, they are designed to sit in front of a fleet and take the hits so they have a pretty good armor boost, however they have very little weapons (only two) and they will go down very easily when they loose their armor. They and the bigger cruiser that functions like that are probably my favorite of the ships I've made, though I'm very happy with how everything turned out.

But I'm going to release the mod very soon so there will more info then.

Made some major progress on that model I showed off yesterday, in fact it looks little like it did before.

It was somewhat inspired by the Planetside 2 Reaver : http://img3.wikia.nocookie.net/__cb2012 ... Reaver.gif

Bit of something I've been working on today:

http://i.imgur.com/aIuZPfZ.png

It's not for the mod I've been more recently working on, and what it's actually for is a bit of an attempt to try something a bit different, though I won't be releasing a whole lot in the way of details until I've made more and finalized more of the details.

When is that going to be finished? I can't even find a thread that I can check regularly for progress. I really want to use what appears to be a giant HAL 9000.

It will be a while, owing to RL pressures and the fact that just building the Devastator's hull (to my standards anyway) is not a simple task. At the moment I would estimate I am around 40% done with it. But I do fully intend to finish it up and get it out there. :)

40 % done, 2 years ago...

by my calculation, that should mean it'll be done 2-3 years from now.

Damn. I wan to use such a huge ship just for s#%*s and giggles. Also, what sort of map would be able to field such a monster?!
