---------------------*--------------------
The ASP Syndicate is a WIP of a primarily trading based fleet, with an emphasis on lots of cargo.

The ships are lightly armed and armored, with a tendency towards defensive based weaponry such as fire support and PD positions. They are relatively fast, but not very nimble, as they need to move cargo on a deadline, but they don't like getting in a fight.

Due to the large volume of the ships, this lends them to have some reasonable spare space for hangar capacity, so any attacking engagements are preferred to be dealt with via fighter and bomber craft.

The bottom line however - is the bottom line, and all engagements eat in to the profit and the reputation of the Syndicate as a corporate entity. They prefer not to get involved, but with space being as it is they need to be able to deter pirates at the least.

WIP Sprites:

Diamondback


Copperhead


Gigantophis


Constrictor


Venom


Bite


Integrated with Junk Pirates

Can't wait to see this one develops. Everytime the focus of a mod is not *MY PEW PEW IS LONGER THEN YOURS* Uomoz is a little bit happier. :D

I've not forgotten about it, at least. Might even get it in to some sort of shape for an initial release soon.

Thanks man!  :)

First three ships are largely complete, sprite-wise. Now to get the Gigantophis in-game and move to a first release ...

The intention will be to add some of these as part of the independent fleets for the Corvus system.

Yeah, most of it, to be honest. The biro only really creates the outline.

Then it goes straight in to Paint.net (via a scanner) from whence I colour it in (with a multiply layer, retaining some of the original detail) and texture it using lots of snippets from David's original sprites and lots of 'overlay' layers.

Then a few glows, some shading, a dash of low opacity brushes to give me something like the above.

I've done the more recent stuff just with a mouse, as well, even though I have a tablet safely locked away at home.
