MShadowy, I love your work. I urge you to watch this video, however:

Instead of useless space camouflage, you might be interested in battleship "dazzle" painting.  Smiley



Watch as he puts the ships on the water!

Huh.

That's actually pretty neat!  ... though I'm not sure it'd be a good idea to actually apply, given that it might confuse the eyes of the player.

Cool stuff, MShadowy, great to see a release  Smiley

For what it's worth, I think they're all really cool, but that is possibly down to my questionable taste in the use of colour.

Looking forward to playing with the new spec Charybdis and messing about with the fitout.

My two cents: Ignore the people complaining about the color. You are the lead designer/director/whatever of the fictional company, you can use whatever color scheme you damned well please!

That said, I like the color scheme as it is, I can't quite place it but it reminds me of... something.

Sorry bout the delayed  response... kinda got sidetracked on another project.  Since I had the day off, I rather meant to have the Enlil in game by today, but uh... well, I started colouring a picture I'd recently sketched and after a quite a few false starts I... kinda got carried away, and never quite got around to the mod work I'd intended.  Doh!

Er, sorta?  I guess it has a bit of that old Zentraedi feel I guess, though I was going a bit more for "Mon Cal Cruiser."

Yeah, I'm glad to have gotten this far; hopefully I'll not get so distracted tomorrow and I can make some progress.  ... and my taste in color is probably also questionable...

Have fun, mendonca.  =D

Hmmm... so I may!  Doesn't mean I can't come up with a better one (though I haven't so far).  As far as reminding you of anything... maybe a little Taiidani?  Granted they preferred yellow and red, but they were also quite stripey.

Anyway, currently resisting urge to show off, which'd probably be premature considering it's not even close to done.  Cheers!

This reminds me of Tau, which is great, because Tau have a very cool anime style direction with their ships.
Dunno what Sept though.

Really love this mod, hope you can expand upon it. the ship sprites are *great* I love the look, its unique and different whilst feeling perfectly at home in the starfruit universe and the color scheme is fine. the ship balancing leaves them very satisfying and fun to play without being OP roflstompers.

I remembered what they remind me of -- hulls for the Collective faction in Warzone 2100

A little more organic but I guess I can see it, haha.

Yeah.  I don't find completely one sided stomp fests terribly entertaining myself, so I've been aiming squarely at keeping it nicely balanced.

At least some challenge is required for it to be fun.

Hmmmm... I guess I'm just not seeing it...

Anyway, I've managed to get the Enlil looking... perhaps not precisely as i wanted it, but still pretty damn good looking.



She's currently in game, though I'm still figuring out her rough balance.  I also need to write a few missions to show it off, though adding her to the campaign was simple enough to already have it done.




... I may need to adjust the engine contrails a little, they seem a bit thin.

Are you planning on doing weaponry? I can understand not wanting to do so, for various reasons, but it always looks so odd to me see such a unique architecture, the curved panels and paint jobs of your ships, with the standard Hegemony and Tri-Tach weaponry.

I agree, but I'm sure it's going to happen

Hmmmm... I suppose so.  Maybe up a point or two on the bigger engines, then.

Honestly, weapons are harder for me to come up with ideas for than ships, and harder for me to balance around.  As Xareh has said, it is likely to happen, but probably about the time that I've actually finished the ship line and can start thinking of weapons that suit them (excepting odd cases where I'll invent a weapon to fit a niche for something like a fighter).

Do what I did, make copies of vanilla weapons (maybe with some small edits, 5 points of range for 5 points of flux and so on, just for making them fit in) with your own graphics.
