[Release] SSP Chakra 1.2
it's done, complete with shield icon and table, get it here: http://www.mediafire.com/download/u5cet0c7nsz8h8f/chakra_1.0.rar
As usual, free to use and change for everybody, and let me know if something is broken


original OP:
Hi, i'm working on a shivan ship that will be able to produce a huge shield and with it shield several other (capital) ships
anybody got a good idea how to call that class of ship? SSS (shivan shield ship) Malphas sounds goofy, and SSG (shivan shield generator) is the same as a sentry gun...

 SGS? A Shivan Guardian Ship?

It's very interesting. Looks like a Chaos base out of Dawn of War. Would it be possible to break up the radial symmetry? It's hard to tell which way is up and down, and the only clue are those small engines in the back.

Doesn't necessarily need a class acronym. Comm Nodes don't have one.

Or if it's cruiser-sized you could just keep SC and say it's a specialized support cruiser.
People are stupid, therefore anything popular is at best suspicious.

Andhaka maybe?

oh you mean the class name, SGS sounds good. Some other sinonims just to give an option: Warden Ship, Custodian Ship, Buffer Ship.

That is an interesting design indeed.

What about SP - Shivan Protector.

SGS sounds cool, Shivan Generator Ship came to mind hearing that, but i really like SP - Shivan Protector too, thanks for the inspiration guys

@Crybertrance, now that you mention it, i can totally see this as some shivan mjolnir if somebody wants to use it that way and it's scaled down ...

breaking up the radial symmetry is not an option though, there's going to be rotationg stuff and it need to be radial for that to work

  • The GTA expects that every man will do his duty.
A Chakra is a a disk shaped weapon used by Vishnu.  Hindus use it as a symbol of protection.  It sort of looks like your ship and goes with the Hindu/Shivan theme.

If a man consults whether he is to fight, when he has the power in his own hands, it is certain that his opinion is against fighting.

that similarity is not intentinal, but cool none the less
now i wonder about a complete name change...
damn, i'll do it, that'll go into the description as a explanation for the name, great stuff man

edit: and changed, that'll save me the trouble of finding a name should i ever model another shivan ship :P

If used right in missions, this might give Shivans more tactical diversity and generate interesting mission possibilities.
"We have now reached the point where every goon with a grievance, every bitter bigot, merely has to place the prefix, 'I know this is not politically correct, but...' in front of the usual string of insults in order to be not just safe from criticism, but actually a card, a lad, even a hero. Conversely, to talk about poverty and inequality, to draw attention to the reality that discrimination and injustice are still facts of life, is to commit the sin of political correctness. Anti-PC has become the latest cover for creeps. It is a godsend for every curmudgeon and crank, from fascists to the merely smug."

Is there a mechanic in the engine that enables this sort of thing? Shielding other ships? (beyond getting in the way)

this ship simply is going to have a shield much larger than it's own size, any ship flying inside that shield will be save from fire outside
think star wars:

I'm not sure why, but I find this really funny, you got quite a bit of laughter out me, I'm still laughing!  :lol:
