4 Shivan Destroyers + 2 Shivan Superdestroyers.  Yep, too many.  However, as the centerpiece of another campaign it'd be a great command ship for a shivan incursion.


"another campaign", eh? You thinkin' what I'm thinkin'? ;)

"...The quintessential quality of our age is that of dreams coming true. Just think of it. For centuries we have dreamt of flying; recently we made that come true: we have always hankered for speed; now we have speeds greater than we can stand: we wanted to speak to far parts of the Earth; we can: we wanted to explore the sea bottom; we have: and so  on, and so on: and, too, we wanted the power to smash our enemies utterly; we have it. If we had truly wanted peace, we should have had that as well. But true peace has never been one of the genuine dreams - we have got little further than preaching against war in order to appease our consciences. The truly wishful dreams, the many-minded dreams are now irresistible - they become facts." - 'The Outward Urge' by John Wyndham

"The very essence of tolerance rests on the fact that we have to be intolerant of intolerance. Stretching right back to Kant, through the Frankfurt School and up to today, liberalism means that we can do anything we like as long as we don't hurt others. This means that if we are tolerant of others' intolerance - especially when that intolerance is a call for genocide - then all we are doing is allowing that intolerance to flourish, and allowing the violence that will spring from that intolerance to continue unabated." - Bren Carlill

SA doesn't want it; TVWP and FSPort can't have it; Reci is Aldo's baby. And you already have your three-armed Shivan ******** **** for DatDB, so... I dunno, a sister ship?

I've been grappling with the size issue. Perhaps I will make it a Destroyer. The most difficult thing is the armament; three LReds for the main beams, and a trio of side- and bottom-mounted SReds to augment it. Note that I'm going for FS2 balance here, not Inferno balance. It has the fighterbay, so... :blah: Let me think about it.

I'm sorry, Woomeister, but that's the way it is. With some more development they could be great, but they're too simplistic currently for my tastes.


I didn't make the Kismat, Amritaya or Diablo so don't care :p

The Gigas is already 3011 polys total, I could make it 10k+, but I doubt the extra detail would be worth the slowdown :doubt:

I think the Diablo and Abel are the worst. I used to like the Abel until I saw it in Modelview against a background that is not black. It has fewer polies than an Apollo for chrissake! And the Diablo is just weird.

The Abel used to be a Corvette untill I had it resized :p

There's nothing wrong with the Abel except a low res map.

*isn't against model

On that note, you should stop by our forums GE.. model or not. :p

From that concept pic alone, I'd go for cruiser size. Scale just doesn't work much bigger than corvette, even.

I never liked the [V] concept art in the credits window. The model itself shows the skill of the modeller, surely it was hard to do, but I think its shape kills the feeling of FreeSpace ....
I could get used to the terrible looking of the Myrmidon, but this one is really an overkill.

Do not fire upon me for this, the model is great, but its general looking is not of my liking. . .

Perhaps good texturing can make its shape forgotten.

So this is why I've heard no progress on my Kurruk... :p

I do like it, but I also agree, Cruiser or Corvette sized would be appropriate...

w00t! This ship has just secured itself a place in TI, filling a nieche that's been open... pretty much since the initial conception of the story.

Not giving too much away, the ship will not be a destroyer sized vessel, but smaller,. which should make a lort of posters in this topic happy. It'll also be very significant to the story without being a main attraction sort of thing, and it will appear in multiple mission. Its armament will appear light, but as they say, it's not what you've got that atters - it's how you use it ;)

For those of you interested in Inferno remaps/reskins/edits/enhancements, I'm working on the much-anticipated GVCa Tanen. See it here.

And here's the mesh. 870 polies, unturreted. It's still in progress, so criticism and fedback is welcome.









What I'd really like is for this to replace the SSD Diablo model, but I know Woomeister likes his stuff, and this looks completely different, so I doubt it. :doubt:


That would make a much better cruiser than a Lucifer x and you got one alreddy so thats that in my HIMO.
