I draw by hand nowadays, in photoshop. I think I started with some of Kaelis' old sprites on this one, but I more or less just sketch, assemble it as a collage and then draw over it. Haven't used BSF in ages.

Nice redesign - I like the slot changes quite a lot.

I'd actually use the Stenos as my piloted ship in any fights below capital brawling as I love the slot layout, 3 sunfires in the top slots, SQG in the large, and shards everywhere else.

Great ship to fly, probably my favorite after the karkinos.

Hmm, I personally disagree. It's an almost instant hit at enormous range, with four of them on the Karkinos you can freely eliminate or overload anything destroyer-size or lower. The closest comparable weapon, the Gauss cannon, does more damage over time, but the shots are much harder to hit. There is more to a weapon than the tooltip numbers. If anything, I'd call the weapon almost too strong.


Yeah, you're right. I didn't take those into consideration.

Love the new Stenos sprite, cyc.

Also, FYI: I'm seeing a lot of complaining about your mod on the Exerelin thread, mostly clueless end users trying to get it to work; and since Zaphide doesn't want to include static copies of all mods, he requires those users to make local modifications to get some mods to work together. Since I know you care about production value, I feel I should point out that it's entirely possible to make the incompatibility that's causing them so much pain turn transparent with a few additions to your CharacterCreationPluginImpl:
http://fractalsoftworks.com/forum/index.php?topic=7136.0

You will want to rename your class from "CharacterCreationPluginImpl" to something unique also, to distinguish between it and Exerelin. I've found that most end-users prefer playing with these curated compilations to adding/removing individually, so it's worth all our time to increase compabitibility.

Peace ~

P.S.: You may also need to look at:
https://github.com/Trylobot/ss-nom/blob/master/data/scripts/TheNomadsModPlugin.java   and
https://github.com/Trylobot/ss-nom/blob/master/data/scripts/misc/Utils.java    for the can_be_loaded function

Which prevents an unwanted sector generation call in Exerelin.

Thank you, Zaphide has been PMing me about it too and I'm gonna sort it out for the next release.



In other news, I redid the Typheus too (god that thing was ugly) and started sketching out a support cruiser, intended to fill a gemini/venture-type role. The Revenant will instead be redesigned and fill the role of Tactical Cruiser more dedicatedly, which I'll get to at some point later.

Dat support cruiser... oh, thats gonna be loverly, particularly as it sounds a bit like my favorite general type of ship -- a combat carrier.

I'm not sure why I like those so much, but I do.  Definitely doesn't hurt that she's looking to be a beautiful ship as well.

And they're so balanced they could be. Playing an Exelerin campaign now and i find them TOO balanced. Especially when facing 10% CR deployment uber shielded Neutrino ships.

Hmm, that new carrier doesn't seem to fit the Blackrock build style much so far. It's great, but it looks kind of out of place, especially among the two it's pictured by. Perhaps make it look more elongated vertically would help?

It's wonderful! Although, the right hand extension looks like a char grilled steak...  :D
