Re: Newbie Makes Spaceships
Due to the sheer size of that one turret....

How long is this behemoth?
"Ka-BOOOOOOOOM!!!!"
"Uh, Sir we can hear the explosion."

Re: Newbie Makes Spaceships
I initially put it at around 5-7 kilometers long, now I'm looking at 3-5 km.

Re: Newbie Makes Spaceships
Depending on which fans and info you subscribe to... the SW Super Star Destroyer was about 7km long too.
So I could see that if the other ship you've got there is about the size of a Victory Class Star Destroyer.

Re: Newbie Makes Spaceships
I made the Phobos to be around 100-300 meters long... I think my models are not to scale. :/

 
Re: Newbie Makes Spaceships
That frigate is turning out to be mighty fine. I really like it, nice work here! :D

Re: Newbie Makes Spaceships
Just adding some very old 3d models I may still or may no longer have the files to.


And a mid-timeline Confederate Frigate. The model's long gone.


An advanced Federation ship. I might be incorporating the parts into other models.


The beginnings of the S'vas Armestya's sister ship, the S'vas Maria. The file has been lost, unfortunately. She was going to be a blend of the Middle-Timeline and Late-Timeline Confederate shipbuilding styles. So there's a three-pronged bow, the beginnings of a bladelike profile from viewed from the top with the 'wings' of a Middle-Timeline warship.


A Kushani inspired frigate.


The S'vas Altarya in Second Fleet colors, which were done by cutting faces into the model and applying materials to said faces.


I still have the file for this. It's a mid-timeline Confederate Battleship.


A slightly older Confederate frigate. File's on my hard drive.


An early Confederate warship, which I've never named. I still have the file for this.


An early drone fighter. I've never made any small craft since. I still have the file.

Anyway. I'm taking a short break from 3d modeling and writing. I'm burnt out. Sorry Dekker. Have a picture of Sarah instead.

Re: Newbie Makes Spaceships
DUDE.  Dat's some crazy skill for a noob.  I'd suggest that you do a model dump, as I'm pretty sure there are a lot of people here who are part of projects that would like to utilize these models.

Also, for future reference, the maximum number of rotating subobjects allowed on any FSO craft is 50.  Since multipart turrets (the ones with moving bases and barrels) have two rotating objects, the maximum number of multiparts is 25. 

Anyways, keep up the crazy good work, and I hope you can find a texturer to help get these beauties in game.

Re: Newbie Makes Spaceships
I totally agree with Esarai. Release what you can find on your disk. Don't let any more goodies disappear from the the face of the earth!

Anyways, keep up the crazy good work, and I hope you can find a texturer to help get these beauties in game.

Re: Newbie Makes Spaceships

Right. Finished the first rotating section, I'm looking to get feedback on it before I move on to the rear. Anyway, model dump coming in by the week.

 
Re: Newbie Makes Spaceships
With that shape and proportions of the rotator, it's reminiscent of the Solaris...

 
Re: Newbie Makes Spaceships
Huh. Now that you've mentioned it, it does look like the Solaris. Oh, well. It's still a work in progress so I can change it if there's any issue. Anyway:

I'm planning to put an armor tube thing around the rotating sections, or on the rotating sections themselves.

There's no problem with that. The Solaris is one badass ship.

Re: Newbie Makes Spaceships
just to clear up a super star destroyer in the sense of the one you see in episode V and VI is and executer class which is 19km long. Here is a link to wookiepedia. the infomation on the star wars website is also the same.

http://starwars.wikia.com/wiki/Executor-class_Star_Dreadnought

The fictional Super class star destroyer was around 8kms long. again link.

http://starwars.wikia.com/wiki/Super-class_Star_Destroyer

And finaly the Imperial class Super Star destroyer which is between 3 and 5 clicks long.

http://starwars.wikia.com/wiki/Imperial-class_Super_Star_Destroyer

Just to clear that up. There are more but but lets not get carried away.
Life is like cheese... I never liked cheese.

 
Re: Newbie Makes Spaceships


And then, suddenly.

I'm thinking of a Heavy variant, with a bigger front end and an extra set of engines.

ED: I just realized that the back end looks a lot like the Solaris...

Re: Newbie Makes Spaceships
It looks a little like some UEF astronautical architects were massive BSG fans.  And that's not a bad thing.  In fact, it's quite awesome.
