There are plenty of mechs...just not in space. They are where they belong: on the ground.

Re: Stellar Assault FSO - A Total Conversion
And now for our dissident friends over in Alpha Centauri/Proxima...



This is what I've titled the "Starbane," a nod to the inspiration for the fighter:

http://www.gearsonline.net/gallforce/eternal/mecha/bain.html

Note that "Bain" is supposed to sound like "bine," but there you go...

The idea of the craft (to date) is that it is a good deal older than the Feathers and was placed into service before plasma cannons on starfighters were commonplace. As such, it uses a pair of gatling mass drivers as its primary weapons - these would have a superior range to plasma and have a high volume of fire, but (a.) ammunition is finite and (b.) they're not too effective against shields (I'd like to think plasma weapons are good at dissipating shields, while projectiles tend to be diverted/deflected). They are wicked against ship hulls, however...

However, the fighter has been updated to the point where its upper missile cells can mount copious quantities of plasma missiles. On the ventral surface of the fusalage is another antiquated weapon system - the Rocket Artillery Pod. This is a launcher fed by a large internal magazine which is capable of deploying large swarms of medium-yield unguided rockets, which again are limited in effectiveness vs. shileding but are lethal against ship hulls.

Another upgrade to the craft is augmented shileding, which is comparable to the shileding about the Feather 1, for example. The hull of the fighter was always fairly durable as a whole, making the fighter a tough one to crack. However, it's not all that maneuverable, being massive as it is and having a fairly high moment of inertia...

...But it is FAST. A high power-to-mass ratio makes the fighter quite tough to catch. When properly managed, this fighter is quite a problem for Synthesis forces... Which makes it popular with mercenaries, pirates, privateers, and local militaries.

Now, none of the above data is confirmed until Quanto makes it so, or at all. Or even an element in Stellar Assault, for that matter. If this is a go, I'll try and get some quick profile drawings in order - until then, there you go.

:D

Re: Stellar Assault FSO - A Total Conversion
The design looks a little off, but I said that with the Feather 4 (or rather, Quanto's interpretation of it) when everyone else thought it was cool. I guess this time it's about how overly long the canopy feels compared to the rest of the fighters seen by the humans. As for what has what weapons, that's Quanto's thing and not mine.

Re: Stellar Assault FSO - A Total Conversion
That is indeed a beautiful ship, can you do some additional sketches of it?
Showing a profile view of the Front, Side and Top?
That wing at the bottom, does it point straight down?

I'm not planning on there being too many other Privateer fighters, maybe one more in addition to this. I do like your design, its a little long, but I can shorten it. The design as a whole reminds me of the Fighters in Macross actually, with the large cockpit connected  by a thin neck to a larger body. Very aesthetic.

Re: Stellar Assault FSO - A Total Conversion
Thanks, Quanto.

I'll get some more sketchwork under way shortly. I hope you didn't mind the description much, that was merely something I had in mind whilst developing the shape and concept (and as such was essential for the design evolution). I can also post some of the preliminary concept works to demonstrate the design workflow.

Re: Stellar Assault FSO - A Total Conversion
No wonder it's under the Gallforce entries. :) Very similar to Macross type design.  :yes:

Lets see more of it, and more like it...

Re: Stellar Assault FSO - A Total Conversion
Hey Thaeris, how are those sketches coming. I'd like to get started on the Starbain, but I'd like those other view angles. Getting the proportions correct is important to me.

To assist with the inevitable resizing of the Feather 3, I'll leave you with this:

Re: Stellar Assault FSO - A Total Conversion
* AndrewofDoom does the same magic as Thaeris does

WHA-BAM!

Figured I'd make a minor update so people actually notice this thread.

Here is the Terran Callisto-class escort carrier. A ship of this class, currently named the SSF Shadow will be the ship you will be based on initially. Geometry's finished, and now needs a UV map and textures.









Hey, I figured I'd use the actual thread for once. =P

Andy, you have horrible timing. :p

I thought we could use some motivation in this thread, so I whipped out a simple, non-serious image using tools I rarely touch: pens...

 :shaking:

Not quite, actually. Quanto and I discussed and worked on the geometry to a fairly good extent for a great part of Friday and Saturday morning. The geometry will hopefully be finalized soon, however.

Regardless of any similarities you may see between Stellar Assault and *cough* Transformers, let it be known, it is all coincidence.

Re: Stellar Assault FSO - A Total Conversion
I've finally finished the FF Sinope, the SGN/SSF's frontline Screening Frigate, its gone through a lot of revisions, but now I can finally say it is done~ :pimp:











This is the general look and appearance that will be seen throughout all of the Terran spacecraft; smooth, sleek, and vibrantly painted.
