Re: Newbie Makes Spaceships
Just a random note should you ever decide to release it with the intention of seeing it ingame, you can't have that many multi part turrets in freespace.
Cool ship though!

I haven't thought about putting it ingame, actually. I'm sure the model's terribly unoptimized and would lag the game into oblivion. I'd love to see my baby flying around, kicking Tev or Shivan ass though. I could release the base model and see if people play around with it.

Holy...
Those big turrets are just yelling "Gauss cannons"^^
Nice ships :)

Hehehehe. I'm currently remodelling the barrels on the big turrets. They're supposed to be shipboard versions of a variant of bomb-pumped lasers. I'm also moving some of the turrets to the bottom side.


Like the new look?

Yeah, looks pretty good. But why do 90% of all spacecraft have to be penis shaped? (not that this is a bad thing)

You've got some very nice ship designs there.  The low profile turrets are roughly like what we'll probably make for Fringe eventually.

Re: Newbie Makes Spaceships
Thanks guys!


I put some teeth on the Phobos. Namely two Hephaestus assault railguns and sixteen VLS tubes (eight on the bottom). There'll be more guns, namely point defense and secondary batteries.

If I may ask, what's this 'Fringe'?

Re: Newbie Makes Spaceships
Does it supposed to have rotators? Those two things in the middle of the ship reminds me rotators from Steve-O's ships.

Jesus, and you call yourself a newbie? You're pulling our collective leg.

Seriously, these are fantastic. That big one with all the turrets - it's really a shame the engine doesn't support that many at this time. I would give up minor body parts to watch that thing spew ordinance like it's going out of style.

Someone texture these! I'd do it myself but I have basically zero experience and screwing up on these would be an insult to the OP.

Re: Newbie Makes Spaceships
Yeah you really are not giving yourself enough credit.  With some decent textures these would look excellent.

The railgun looks cool, and I like the detail on the mid-rear part of the ship.

I'd say we're a small team but packed with potential.  ^__^

They counter-rotate, BP style.

I'm currently working on modeling PD turrets for the Phobos, and re-arming the Armestya with the new beam turrets. (Does FSO support turreted beams?)

Also, the FringeSpace mod looks very cool! Keep working on it, guys.

You could fit a planet's worth of people in the larger ship at that size....

The turret is the size of the ship?    0__0

Re: Newbie Makes Spaceships
Yep. The ship's got turrets the volume of frigates.

Dekker, I'm working on an update right now but my recent modeling spree's sapping time. I'll have it done by the end of the week.

Re: Newbie Makes Spaceships

So, I've got a UV map going for the front most part of the Phobos, and crappy textures to go with it.
