Hey Maeglamor, how are you doing on the turreting and the Vasudan fighter?

I've been going through some of the ingame destroyers to get some idea of turret sizes and numbers. I haven't started the vasuden fighter yet cos I was just finishing up the lower detail models for the destroyer, I just need to finish the "debris" one. I think it might be wise to do a remodel of the excalibur since it's the primary fighter in the game. What do you think?

 

Offline Grey Wolf

That's probably a good idea. Do you still have the file? It'd probably be a good idea to add a little bit more detail and it doesn't have the lower detail versions or debris. I hadn't noticed that before!

How soon do you need these done anyway?

 

Offline Grey Wolf

Doesn't matter. I haven't set a release date for the campaign yet.

It's just that I'm thinking about textures right now, haven't really got anything finished just a few preliminary ideas.

If you don't mind I'd like to totally redesign the excalibur, I've got something on paper which you might like, I'm in the early stages of building it.When it's finised I'll send it to you and you can tell me what you think.

 

Offline Grey Wolf

I'll hold on to the original just in case. Also, I forgot to mention this but it has 9 turrets (at least my version). 5 in front and 2 mounted on each wing.

9 Turrets?!? On a fighter?

 

Offline Grey Wolf

Oops! Meant gun mounts!

Guess I don't have much common sense either! (No, Setekh, I'm not asking for a change in my title.)

Whew  

Still, that's a lot of hardware for a fighter, balancing may be hard. The fighter would have to be pretty bulky to look realistic, what is it a heavy strike craft?

 

Offline Grey Wolf

It's an experimental craft, with an advanced reactor, whith lot's of primaries but a rather small secondary bank. It's armor is only about average (about as heavy as an Appolo's), and the biggest standard weapon it can use is the Prometheus S, but it can carry the experimental Thor cannon and the Flare Gun, some of the custom weapons I'm working on right now, with pretty good speed. If you still think that's a lot, go look at Max's Phoenix. 12 gun mounts! Actually, on second thought, lowering the Excalibur's gun mounts to 7.

That actually sounds pretty good, I was sorta cringing in wait for some super fighter that was just no challenge to fly.

It looks like you've given it a lot of thought, I'll see if I can come up with a design that does the concept justice  

 

Offline Grey Wolf

Thanks. Actually, when I first designed it looked a lot crappier, was using FS1 weapons, but could've whipped any FS2 ship. But when I came up with the idea for the campaign, I started a massive process of scaling it down. Glad you like it though. Always good to have people on a team agree.

Well, the Erinyes already has 8...

 

Offline Grey Wolf

When I originally designed it it had 15 gun mounts. Now you know why I scaled it down.

Eeek! 15 gun mounts?

I'll stick with my beloved Perseus and it's four mounts. That way, I can afford to miss.

I'm away for a few days and you see what happens! If you read more than the last post, Sushi, you'd have seen the final product will have SEVEN gun mounts.
