Not bad. I assume that its Orions' origin make it that by the time of Inferno, EA can just mass produce these like WWII escort carriers. Seems more logical and effetive than GTA Warlock.

Have you scrapped GTA Phobos and the second corvette (Alexandria?)? I see awfully many Deimos class in the screenshots.

The GTCv Phobos is still in use. I don't know about anything about any Alexandria.

I ment this:

It was an escort corvette with similar setup as Deimos. I guess replacing it with higher quality Deimos is OK (I was never a fan of Alexandria model).


Edit:
I know it might sounds like a crazy idea, but since EA already use Aurigas, then what about retconing Telemus as this (would looks badass with EA style):

Might not be as OP powerfull as original Telemus, but would still be very powerful comparing to GTVA super carrriers.

Amazing what a new set of textures can do. I'd love to see a version of this that can use team colours in place of the blue and yellow sections. :)

It seems easy enough to do, so why not.

The Dagger, when it is released to the public, since I got the similarly old model in Shattered Stars, can I change the textures to blend in the Authority scheme?

Hmm... One single command super-carrier? I really like the idea, we might use Daegon as that. The problem is lack of proper place for such ship in EA fleet. Nemesis is basicly all-purpose commandship.

Doesn't in the new story EA had two axis of attack after occupying the Beta Aquilae? This would require the secondary command ship, not to mention making it a huge carrier fits as expeditionary command ship suitable for long campaign far from your own home territory. Additionally Nemesis might be too precious and single ship to actually be everywhere at once.

Daegon is a nice model too, but doesn't it far lower poly comparing to Santuary/Orion phase 2 - not to mention Sanctuary looks like Auriga on serious steroids while Daegon looks a bit away from Auriga style.

It would be nice for EA to have super-carrier especially if GTA has several Odins and Warlocks on their side.

Ross 128 offensive was probably lead by some standard Tereus/Lindos or maybe another Auriga carrier. Nemesis is only example of unique super-capitalship in EA fleet.

In case of Sanctuary, it's actually not higher poly than Daegon. Current Sanctuary is MediaVPs Orion with low-poly Orion Phase-2 segments. While I personally like the design, history and the whole Sanctuary stuff in BP, I hate current model that is terrible abomination with bad geometry and multiple underdetailed places. Current Sanctuary is kitabash of two models and an abomination from experianced modeller's point of view. I believe Darius wanted to have any improvement of old Hamano's Orion Phase 2 and while current Sanctuary model is better than low poly one, it still requires a lot of work. BP guys are probably have much more important things to do... The same as our team.

And in case of GTVA warships:

This is GTSD Bastion - an unique flagship of the whole terran navy, comparable to Nemesis. There are two mentioned Odin destroyers in Nostos, but none of them is part of regular fleets. In case of Warlock carriers, as far as I remember [according to INFR1] only two warships of this class were ever completed - presumbly original GTCa Warlock and of course our beloved Independence. So we have basicly three supercapitalships in regular terran fleets, and only one is pure warship.

I like the general shape and model of Bastion, but parts of the texture (especially the purple parts) make it colorful like a christmass tree. Does Bastion have something special (like Nemesis nanojumps) or is it just Odin on steroids?

What do you mean by Odins not being part of regular fleets? SOC? irregular task force (like Collossus in FS2)?

This is still 5:1 in GTA favor (not to mention Vasudans) - poor Nemesis doesn't stand a chance alone.

Two freaking big beams, pletheora of others and hmmm... Colors :P. We may rework textures at some point in the future. This model comes from time, when I didn't know how to bake textures.

As for Odin class, I can say only that they serve as a testbed for new technology, weapons, and perform extraordinary tasks.

...and as for 5:1, well... We shall wait for Woo :P

Well if we count in the Icanus then it's easily 30:1 in tonnage for EA, but I don't like Icanus apart from "sheer 20km of pure epicness" factor - it's just magical deus ex machina with very little pratical use (other than facing similar size Shivan ship or to die from even bigger Shivan ship :P   )

While I love BIG EPIC SHIPS as much as anybody, it's not practical to add a new EA supership right now, even if Woo wanted to. Updating the current EA fleetpack is enough work as it is. Besides, Missions 1-15 (the first release) are already in various stages of completion.
"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."

It's the Terran flagship

Well the Nemesis has an easy way to defend itself for the final 2 missions...

Most of the old assets have either been released in model dumps or lost over time. We've not really dropped much stuff since starting this version of the project.
