(Re?)Release – Iron Hawk Sunrider
OK. I found this on my HDD – I remember making the ship, I remember texturing the ship, I remember buggerizing about making the pof for the ship, but I don’t remember releasing the ship, and the boards dodgy search function turns up nothing (though that hardly fills me with confidence one way or the other). That said, I find it unlikely that I would go to all the trouble of making the ship, doing all the stuff for it, and then not release it. So, this may well be a re-release of the thing, but it’s the first time I can remember it, so it’s the first time that counts :).



This is the Sunrider, in the Iron Hawk range of fighters from the Starr Corporation. The fact that I have not made any other fighters in this range in no way diminishes their existence. It’s a civilian “Armed Transport” – basically a small, light ship designed to shuttle one or two people around a system, but armed because, hell, it’s Freespace. Everything has guns. In essence, it’s the FS equivalent of a modern day Cessna. In combat, I guess it’s kind of a Terran Anubis – all it really has going for it is manoeuvrability – it’s speed is nothing special, shields and armour are pathetic, it has crappy weapons compatibility and really tiny missile bays. Have fun!

Things to note:

 - This mod has been extensively tested. Of course, when I say “Extensively” I mean “Minimally”. It runs, FS doesn’t crash. Beyond that, who really knows.
 - It has no afterburner. This is not a mistake or an accident, but a conscious admission. If you want one, add one.
 - It has no docking point for a support ship – this too is by choice, as I’m hoping the SCP will one day soonish implement some sort of non-crashy way of making ships without support ship dockpoints simply un-reamrmable rather than crash FSable.

Anyway, Hades combine won't send me the confirmation e-mail so I can upload it there, and the thing's too large for attatching, so it's time to fall back on my trusty ancient tripod site - copy and paste this URL:

It's cute and all, but at 10 meters long..... what weapons can possibly fit on it? IIRC a Tempest is about the size of a modern compact car.

Lop off the little tail and turn it into an ejector-seat-craft. You simply dump your fighter when it's too badly damaged, and fly around in a little mini-ship like that with a single gun and jump-drive.

Turn on TGA and JPG textures in the FS2_Open launcher.
