==============================
=United Terran Republic Fleet Draft Release 0.15=
==============================
UPDATED 19/8/17
Ok so i have managed to get some time to work on this pack again.
-So i have corrected the MOI issue and fixed the docking points.
-I have also gone in and i think i have sorted all the subsystems miss matching.
-Also fixed minor issues like radar dishes rotation axis being wrong.
-added some minor details to Tempest and Heracles, ie glowing points.

So please let me know of any issues i have missed :)

NEW DOWNLOAD 19/8/17 https://www.mediafire.com/file/s3t9ad288bdkcjd/Republic%20Fleet%20v0.15.rar


This is the first release of the United Terran Republic fleet pack, The United Terran Republic has nothing to do with the freespace universe, it is something of my own making. You may use these models as you see fit but please credit me Starbug and Darius for making them. The pack contains 6 ships

Excursor class Corvette:
Still working on a Tech Description for this one :)

Minow class Destroyer:
The Minnow class destroyer is an refit of the Olympia class destroyers. The Minnow has been fitted with 2 of the new Phalanx Particle beam cannons for an extra punch. These new weapons come at the expense of removing the VLS Torpedos and has less muntions for her Plasma Cannons, which reduces her operational effectiveness. The Phalanx Cannons are also tied into the ships reactor and Shockdrive and as such the weapons can only fire for very short periods of time but when firing the cannon is devastating. The Minnow is primarly designed for testing of new systems to be intergrated into the Tempest class Frigates. Despite these short comings the Minnow has proved an effective vessel when supporting Olympia Destroyers and Excursor corvettes.

Olympia class Destroyer:
The Olympia is the standard Destroyer of the Republic navy. The Olympia was constructed at the Luna shipyards by the Ariel Aerospace corperation. First introduced in 2165, the Olympia was designed to counter the colonial vessels which where heavier armoured than the Republics Halbred corvettes. The Olympia proved to be a match against the Colonial navy and help end the mining Guild war of 2170. Since then the Olympia has found it self patrolling shipping routes, protecting convoys against Raider incursions. The destroyer is armed with 12 VLS Hammer torpedos, 2 88mm Arclite Plasma Cannons, 1 CW88mm Gauss Cannon and 9 CQWS enplacements. The Hull is comprised of several layers of armour for defense. The Olympia is also equiped with a Standard mk3 Cold Fusion Reactor, Shockpoint Drive systems to allow it to make its own Shockjumps into Subspace. The Olympia is also has the new Grav drive, a section of the vessel that rotates to provide gravity for the crew, unlike the halbred Corvettes which had a small grav field generated by the ships reactor.

Tempest class Frigate:
The Tempest class Frigate commissioned in 2178, is the designed to replace the Olympia and Minnow class Destroyers as the mainstay of the Republic fleet. The Tempests design can be traced back to the Olympia space frame. Ariel Aerospace Corp found that the frame was a sound design, so they decided to upscale the frame. The Tempest is designed to be a sledgehammer, to jump in and devastate the enemy in the opening salvo. To achieve this the Tempest is armed with 4 frontal and 2 rear Phalanx particle beam cannons power by 2 arc reactors and the Shockpoint drive. 1 heavy Arclite Gauss Cannon, 1 CW120, 7 CW88mm Plasma cannons and 2 Hammer torpedo launchers. She is also armed with multiple Close Quarter Weapon System's should hostile vessels get in to close. The only issue raised so far with the design is in the minimal anti-fighter defence and slow speed, but this is compinsated by an escort of Olympia destroyers. So far at aleast 2 dozen of these vessels have been produced at the Luna shipyards with more on order as tensions rise between the United Terran Republic and the Colonial Alliance. When a Tempest appears in system you know the Republic means business.

Heracles class Frigate Carrier:
United Terran Republic's small Carrier, based off the Tempest's hull frame. Most of the heavy weapons from the Tempest have been stripped out for hangerbays, repair and rearm facilities

Donnager class Science Cruiser:
The Donnager is an explorer class vessel, designed to map out uncharted systems, asteroid fields and nebula's. It is equipped with all the latest scientific equipment the Republic has to offer. The Donnager class also acts as research outpost, to test out new weapon systems, engine designs, special projects and any other research which is deemed to much of a risk to a planets population. For this reason the Donnager is only armed with minimal weapons, mainly for protection against asteroids.

The Donnager can also act as a colony ship, a large transport vessel due to its modular design. The science hub can be removed and replace with another crewhub, or cargo pods. This makes the donnager very versatile design and has found its way into many of the Republics ship designs.



This are unfinished, they require paths, spec maps, normal maps and some fine tuning and balancing them.

Also REQUIRES BLUE PLANET COMPLETE, as i have used some effects from them for my weapons.

I think i have included everything for the weapons, but may not have, as these are of my own making based of the blue planet UEF weapons.

Big thank you to Darius for helping me finish the Excursor Corvette :)

One very dark screenshot, with one very dark video does a poor job of showing of what exactly these models are, and why someone would want to start using them.

Re: United Terran Republic [DRAFT RELEASE]
Cool beans, I always liked those designs. I'd just suggest you make some well sized and well lit screenshots (possibly out of engine, maybe just in the modelling program or even p3ds) of each individual ship to showcase them. That way its either for people to window shop what you have.

I see considerable inspiration from the Babylon 5 - Omega class destroyer... particularly the nose.  That said, the same could be said for the UEF ships from BP, so I guess its quite popular.

Re: United Terran Republic [DRAFT RELEASE] with better Screenshots
Yeah I have always loved the omega class destroyers, my number 2 all time favourite earth ship design, next to the BC304 form Stargate.

There is something about the omegas design that just attracts me. Just sad we never got to see it fire its missiles, as I never knew the red pods along the side of the hull were ment to be missiles launchers.

Anyway I just subconsciously did that, with the design. Working on a design for a battlecruiser

Why did you include a "Tables" folder and then put the modular tables in the root folder?

The tables folder is empty and there's a -shp.tbm and a -wep.tbm in the base \Republic Fleet\ folder.

schrödinbug (noun) - a bug that manifests itself in running software after a programmer notices that the code should never have worked in the first place.

"I am one of the best FREDders on Earth" -General Battuta

<Aesaar> literary criticism is vladimir putin

<MageKing17> "There's probably a reason the code is the way it is" is a very dangerous line of thought. :P
<MageKing17> Because the "reason" often turns out to be "nobody noticed it was wrong".
(the very next day)
<MageKing17> this ****ing code did it to me again
<MageKing17> "That doesn't really make sense to me, but I'll assume it was being done for a reason."
<MageKing17> **** ME
<MageKing17> THE REASON IS PEOPLE ARE STUPID
<MageKing17> ESPECIALLY ME

<MageKing17> God damn, I do not understand how this is breaking.
<MageKing17> Everything points to "this should work fine", and yet it's clearly not working.
<MjnMixael> 2 hours later... "God damn, how did this ever work at all?!"
(...)
<MageKing17> so
<MageKing17> more than two hours
<MageKing17> but once again we have reached the inevitable conclusion
<MageKing17> How did this code ever work in the first place!?

<@The_E> Welcome to OpenGL, where standards compliance is optional, and error reporting inconsistent

<MageKing17> It was all working perfectly until I actually tried it on an actual mission.

If you're repacking the archive, you can add the missing Donnager texture.

Yeah, they disabled external linking for everyone unless you have a paid subscription.  Which is great, because they're godawful and will probably find that no one will want to pay them anything.
