[RELEASE] Ancient Armamentarium Pack
A thread for my Ancient models releases. Recreational project without any specified goal other than having fun and practice of semi-organic geometry. I mostly upgrade already existing models and bring them to acceptable standards.

Re: [RELEASE] AC Iraklion
Thanks for the ship you modeled specifically for my Shattered Stars project, as the Galactic Rim Worlds corvette. However, I still need textures, namely creating the PBR assets plus the AO.

Re: [RELEASE] AC Iraklion
I actually modelled it without purpose and without any project in mind. Just something I wanted to make, but if you found this appropiate for your project, you're also welcome to use it as whatever you want.

I cannot actually help with PBR textures, as I'm just starting my experiance with Substance Painter and stuff. Glosiness, roughtness or whatever maps you need to make is up to you. The only thing I can do is AO bake. Grab it from here.

It is my favorite mod as well :P. I really regret that it died, and third chapter won't be made. At least I can make some Ancient starships. Perhaps one day I will update ASD Minos and other older ships.

I tried to resurrect that a few years ago based on the Dump. But unfortunately i was only able to work out a complete campaign script of act 3 part 1 and finished some of the unfinished missions from the dump release aswell i had created some of my exclusive planned missions... even only two of them were nearly completed. But i simply lost motivation after that.

And another idea about an Aesdherian side story failed because the Nightmare fleet that was used for them, does not even have freighters and cargo containers :D.
Female FS2 pilot since 1999.

German Translations created by me:
Between the Ashes: Slaves of Chaos, FreeSpace Port, The Destiny of Peace, Silent Threat: Reborn (in development), Awakenings (in development),

Other projects:
FSPort Mission Upgrade, Out of the Shadow: Nova Safiya Edition (Remake of the Out of the Shadow campaign, in development)

If you want to know, what my nickname means, -chen is a german diminutive term, so you can translate Novachen as something like Little Nova or Novalet.
Even my original meaning of this name is more like "Sweet pretty deadly (Super)Nova" ;).

Re: [RELEASE] AC Iraklion
Iraklion is actually associated with Unborn Legacy project idea, not with ASW at all but Unborn Legacy was supposed to keep ASW as canon. An alternate story, where unknown race influenced late stage of Ancient-Shivan war, destroyed the Lucifer, and saved their empire from destruction. Ancients were supposed to be enemy for GTA and PVN later. I made Iraklion basicly because I needed to find a vent for "how cool that thing would be!" feeling... And later forget the idea. Heart wanted to make it, but mind said "No!" :P. Another offshot of that idea is AD Chania destroyer, used in Exile. I have unfinished frigate somewhere on my HD, but both Chania and the frigate are worse than Iraklion in terms of quality.

I love FS1, and I love Ancients... But I already have too many projects on my head xD. Perhaps if anyone would like to continue ASW, I would apply for such project as model and background creator.

Re: [RELEASE] Ancient Armamentarium Pack
I'm making more for pure fun and I need more practice with semi-organic shapes. This is textured rebuild of Minos superdestroyer. Sorry for black lines artifacts. They somehow appeared with high-res DDS to low-res JPG conversion and won't be present on actual model.
Basicly nothing spectacular as I have no time for serious modelling to FS actually. I love this design, so it's significantly updated version is the last WiP stage.

I used to be good at this :P.

This thing is too strange and too cool to escape my attention. Will be released when I'm done with mapping erros.

Re: [RELEASE] Ancient Armamentarium Pack
Does anyone know what the purple growths are actually supposed to be?
"We have now reached the point where every goon with a grievance, every bitter bigot, merely has to place the prefix, 'I know this is not politically correct, but...' in front of the usual string of insults in order to be not just safe from criticism, but actually a card, a lad, even a hero. Conversely, to talk about poverty and inequality, to draw attention to the reality that discrimination and injustice are still facts of life, is to commit the sin of political correctness. Anti-PC has become the latest cover for creeps. It is a godsend for every curmudgeon and crank, from fascists to the merely smug."

Re: [RELEASE] Ancient Armamentarium Pack
They remind me of the sensor avionics on the Malia, so that's always been my theory.

Precisely why I was looking for it. Looking forward!

Re: [RELEASE] Ancient Armamentarium Pack

Yeah, probably advanced sensor arrays. Same things are present on Heraklion and Phaistos [freighter] but are covered in different texture so they are not distinguishable.

I like them. Makes this set of ancient ships look exotic and alien, matching my vision of Ancients at all. Achladia for example was originally a vasudan destroyer. Odigitria, despite being the coolest looking and most unique Ancient warship from ASW, has the same history. While i like ASW models, I want something more crazy. I always imagined Ancients to be aquatic species, or living in somekind of liquid at least. While I don't want resemblences to fish at all, inspiration taken from earth creatueres living on extreme depths are welcome. Minos matches this setting and TBH is probably the best Ancient fan-made warship I've ever seen..

Re: [RELEASE] Ancient Armamentarium Pack
Gorgeous Minos mesh you made! I've downloaded it. For my mod as the Svaamin. What about the AO/PBR, once more?

As for other Ancient ships, what about the AJ Androgeos?

Re: [RELEASE] Ancient Armamentarium Pack
Juggernaut is a big deal. I love Androgeos, but I already have other candidates both from ASW and OTT modeldump. In fact I have frigate and destroyer halfway completed, so if I decide to go for another Ancient ship upgrade, I will probably chose something already started.

I'm pointing at niche and trying to figure out what's missing in the community available assets. I made Iraklion because Malia from ASW is only released HTL Ancient cruiser. As for juggs, there is Akrotiri but I guess you already have it.

As for AO, be my guest.

Re: [RELEASE] Ancient Armamentarium Pack
Thank you for that.

As for other candidates both from ASW and OTT modeldump you speak of, you are referring to the Pylos, the Malia, the Heraklion, etc. And what of Ancient installations such as Thera?

Re: [RELEASE] Ancient Armamentarium Pack
HTL Malia is done by FSF and it's awesome. I may bake it to rid off tiles completly. Heraklion is on my list. Pylos won't be done as it's in fact - stretched retail Seraphis model and it's not worth rebuilding. Thera is not imaginative. I'm thinking about making Ancient installation with original design.

Next model is actually AFg Moires - Anti-fighter, escort frigate, logistics vessel and tactical carrier.
