ME Ships (old)
« on: March 31, 2012, 01:42:18 PM »


Looks like someone else has already made some progress with mass effect modding, and is actually bothering to do art stuff themselves. Godspeed, nonlazy person!

Their thread:
http://fractalsoftworks.com/forum/index.php?topic=1986.0

Hello.

I would like to bring, mainly, the Reaper ships and the Normandy into Starfarer. If possible, the Alliance, Turian, and other races' ships would also be nice.

I'm a bit of a coding wizard, but I am utterly incapable of art, and can't be bothered to learn about cleanly ripping sounds.

If anyone is interested and capable, I could use:

  • A decent Reaper ship recreation in the proper perspective, battle ready with main weapon exposed, capital ship scale as big as possible without causing collision problems.
  • Reaper beam art. A nice deep red Tachyon beam recolor would suffice. More accurate and creative recreation encouraged, though.
  • Reaper main cannon art. Looks like a camera lens.
  • A clean rip of the "voice" or "roar" sound of a Reaper.
  • A clean rip of Reaper's main laser cannon sound.
  • The Normandy SR-2, battle ready etc. etc. SR-1 also welcome. Should have appropriate weapon mounts as lore-accurate as possible. Frigate size recommended, but slightly larger if necessary to get enough details in.
  • Thanix Cannons. Mount and projectile art, and sound effects if a clean enough rip is possible.

Though I doubt there would be, if there's enough interest and art/sound contribution, I'd be glad to whip up some entire, separate Mass Effect factions and keep them up to date with new Starfarer versions. All contributions would of course be fully credited.

Thoughts, ideas, suggestions, criticism, etc. welcome as this thread does or does not develop.

I would be more than willing to assist with a Mass Effect mod. Though I'm not an artistish type, I would probably be able to do pretty much anything else about it. Though I am having some complications with adding ships, I think that would be a one-time problem (barring occasional incompetence on my part :P)

I think you see a collection of everything in ME3. Only one I'm unsure of is the Turian dread

lol, i kept making screenies of the final space encounter, cause I kinda.. surprisingly like space battles. But EA was kinda greedy, they dont show much details, just -"look, look" lotsa ships there.. cut.
(was anyone else here also sad after the end?.. I kinda didnt understand why I was role playing the whole three games, watching after my crew, only to have a "insert coin here" and play three endings...)

Nevermind, good luck with the mod, personally I think it could be cool, maybe make a proper ending this time :D I wonder how will you/or the spriter manage to fit in weapons on some of the ships, cause
from Starfarer perspective - they should be hidden - on ships belly for example? How to deal with that? ???

And internet is full of win - found Normandy sr2, quick fix in PS and its done. Would like to see a reaper in the game  :-X

That deviantart gallery has some really good examples, especially the exposed-weapon Sovereign class Reaper.

If anyone would like to snag and touch up some of those, if they work, I think they'd make a great starting point.

I love the idea, but unfortunately all I can offer is moral support. Best of luck!
