Original Post:
Here are my "sentry gun" ships from the CoFS screenshots.
Do note that I made these within the span of like two days, and they're my very first attempts at a) Modelling, b) UVmapping, and c) Texturing at the same time, so I know they're not very good. They're fully UVmapped with AO bake, though UV space texture usage isn't very efficient and my texturing skills are pretty bad so they kinda only look good when its rather dark XD.

Download: HERE

That said, they're pretty sodding huge if you want to use them as just sentry guns right now (they're 400m and 900m respectively), as I intended to use them as ships (The bigger one has a mini fighterbay even). I could make downturreted, smaller versions for actual sentry guns if the demand exists. (Or just modified versions with the tail chopped off and whatnot). Scaling is ezpz anyway.

No table, but it should be fairly simple to table in yourself, no fancy shenanigans going on with these guys.

At any rate, have fun.

It's awesome, even if it's your first serious attempt at modelling. Congratulations for delivering this! :yes:

Looks great! Can also imagine them well as a sort of IPBM (InterPlanetary Ballistic Missile) or as a ship found in WoD.
Currently playing: real life.

Sick.

 
Re: RELEASE: Askaeldian ships (aka giant flying sentry guns)
Looks like a Homeworld needleship to me.

BTW- Are you making a whole lineup of these Askaeldians?

if there is any consistancy with the Shivans, it's their lack of consistancy - -Norbert-

Re: RELEASE: Askaeldian ships (aka giant flying sentry guns)
Might make one or two more at most, maybe including a fighter.
Depends how I feel like and what the mod I'm making these for needs :P

Kick-ass. They kinda look like the Kadeshi "needle" motherships from Homeworld.

Re: RELEASE: Askaeldian ships (aka giant flying sentry guns)
Might make one or two eight or nine more at most least, maybe definitely including a fighters, installations, freighters, cruisers, destroyers and many more.

Fixed.
BTW- these ships actually warrant making a whole species mod/model pack for them.

That's what I was thinking, just like the Vishnans, Aestherians, Tiigran-Merisst and others.

The destroyer has been wikified and added to FSMods. The frigate will follow!

Re: RELEASE: Askaeldian ships (aka giant flying sentry guns)
Its not really the size of a FS destroyer, btw (though you could always scale it)
More correctly they'd be Cruiser and Corvette in terms of FS designations.

Re: RELEASE: Askaeldian ships (aka giant flying sentry guns)
Double Post!



Here, have an installation. Perfect 9-point radial symmetry made UVing this super ez (lol, I'm a lazy fag).
Designed to be a theater-shield generator system, the installation has massive bubble shield 10 kilometers in radius, 4000, yes 4000! faces. It is lightly defended, with only a pair of turrets, one each on its upper and lower surfaces.

It is recommended that you give it the "knossos" flag or it will take 20 years to explode. Its explosion are huge, unfortunately, due to the shield mesh (and thus bounding box) being so ungodly big.
Feel free to rip off the shield mesh and use it as a comm node or something, if that's what you want. You could probably get it to have a more sane bounding box radius too then.

Oh, right. Don't try this in retail.

Re: RELEASE: Askaeldian ships - NEW STUFF (well one new thing)
That's awesome. These guys are really carving out their own unique combat flavour. Interesting to see if their fighters are special too...
