Yeah the Geb looked too dark when I swapped that map.

I would have actually pegged the Geb as Shivan if it were an untextured model. It's the insectoid appearance, the spider-eyes thing of the forward (I assume they're) turrets. Vasudan ships normally look reptilian.

Maybe just alter the coloration of the turrets to something not quite so blatantly obvious?

Vasudan ships are more Ichtian, IMHO.  Since they tend to have fins, not legs.  Shivan ships are insectoid, with the implied exoskeleton-like outer appearance, but other than the "eyes" the Geb doesn't meet those qualifications.
who needs a signature? ;)

As for the turrets most ships in our fleets now use a standard turret set for each faction. Most Vasudan capships have the exact same turrets as the Geb. Even some FS2 models like the Sathanas and Rakshasa now have new turrets matching the style of our fleets.

That first shot of the Shivan shipyard is amazing...It just became my desktop.
But one question...There is a ship in the upper left corner that looks like a three armed Sathanas...
That wouldn't happen to be the Gargant...would it...?
I remember it being described as looking something like that.
Maybe we should send in the GTSUMAKJ Chuck Norris...

Yeah that's the Amritaya, which easily exceeds the firepower of the Sathanas. If the Gargant was in that shot, you wouldn't be able to see it all even in that distance shot.

Then what does the Gargant look like?

*Gives big puppy dog eyes and sniffles*

(Oh yes, I also have a near unlimited supply of Chuck Norris jokes, so if anyone needs any, feel free to ask.   :D)

Then what does the Gargant look like?
It resembes a stretched and extra spikey Sathanas, at... what, 30KM in length?.  Its forward arms curve down to a near point.  You can see it actually, if you've downloaded R1.  Its the background for the manin hall.

It's about 37km long and is made from two combined Gigas R1 meshes.

 
omg thats scary!!! :eek2:

wonder how much distance you have to put between yourself and the gargant to see some space if you look directly to one of its sides

Could you make mission with only Gargant and player? I'd like to see it in-game. ;7

I would like to see a picture of the Gargant other than the main hall one.  Something in isometric perspective maybe?  (I hope I'm remembering my tech class terms right...)

Would that be possible?

We currently need to fix some balance issues caused by the last weapon update and the addition of the new armour table. In the current state it's near impossible to get near some of the capships in a fighter. I've hacked the ai_profiles table to make it a bit more managable for now. Hmm after that I can't think of anything major that needs doing except the missions. There's a few little things still to be done, but I'll probably find something major later :D

Not to mention how much distance you would have to put yourself to avoid getting wiped out by a Gargant's shockwave.

Alt-J, and pray the mission designer was smart enough to code for all ships being allowed (and directed) to jump out if the Gargant blows.

No that one in the teaser pic was a corvette variant of the other one. The teaser one isn't used anymore.
