i like the GVI...  still not convinced about the Olympus though...  seems to be functionality over style, & who wants that

Well, it certainly does its job - you ever tried making a run on this thing?

Heheh, yeh. It's great when you figure out a way around things. This is my solution to coloured lighting - it's versatile and easy

The trick is to strive for both. In the case of the Olympus, the functionality is there. The ship design concept is perfect. Unfortunately I never could get away from it looking like an ironing board  .

I'll send Setekh the Black Widow. I wasn't initially happy with the appearance of that either. But once painted up it looked awesome. The same can't honestly be said of the Olympus.
Be warned: This site's admins stole 100s of hours of my work. They will do it to you.

The "Black Widow" is a great ship concept, I just downloaded it myself.

However, plot wise, I'd say it is a more primitive ship from the begining of the Terran-Vasudan war in design:

GTC Amalthia- circa 2321
Designed originally to end the brief insurgentcy within the Beta Aquilae system only months before it's launch, the Amalthia was the begining of the Galatic Terran Alliance's fleet programs.

The spaceyards required to build this vessel, have led to the ability for the alliance to construct vessels of similar magnitude for the upcoming strife with the Vasudan people.

The Amalthia is designed for full coverage for it's advanced missile system, the firepower contained within it's frame is by far more than in any spacefaring vessel ever constructed. (historical note: up until 2324, capital ships rely upon warhead systems utilizing nuclear devices, or upon mass driver type weaponry)

However, this vessel is nothing compared to the new paradigm of space warfare the alliance destroyer currently being constructed, the GTD Tethys. (historical note: up until the Tethys, fightercraft were used for anti-piracy due to their ineffectiveness compared to GTA planetary defense grids, the Tethys utilized the latest technologies to create a viable warship that could house fightercraft designed to engage and destroy capital ships, the Tethys caught the Vasudans off guard until their ship design revolution with classes such as the Aten and Typhon, followed by the alliance's adaptation of their new technologies into designs such as the Fenris, the Kypris destroyers, and later the Orion destroyers)

How you would have done it? You just did  

That is damn nice. Especially seeing as you did it entirely in TS - amazing. I can't even imagine. However a couple of things - the background lacks detail, is that a TS rendering thing? And the way that Cairo beam cuts straight through the Moloch - no explosion!   Lastly, the contrast is a little high.  

Still. That looks amazing. Great work, Bobboau!

Heheh, sorry - shall I slow down?  

As for not quitting - I need requests! Which ones do you want next?
