I'd love to have more of HELMUT stuff in my mod. Already added some ships (thanks to Meso).

Will be probably possible soon. I want to make a little mod with those ships, i'll try to make it by myself as i already drowned MesoTroniK under a metric ton of work. I may need a few more ships to make this possible though. Anyway, here's some last eye-candy of the day and i stop spamming the thread with my stuff.

Lasher classes "Castor & Pollux" and Sunder class "Royal Myst".

hm. Would Castor and Pollux be faster, to make up for the loss of three weapon mounts?

Well, I've got several ships (New and remakes) I'd like to show. I'm always looking for thoughts/critiques of my work, so comments are very appreciated.

Spoiler

Here's a retouch of the Romach assault capital ship.

Here's the previous version
[close]

Spoiler

A retouch of my Roundhead frontal assault cruiser. I shortened the top right purple piece, and added a bunch of stuff to the plates to break it up and add some variety. I also switched out hardpoints for turrets on the cylinder part on the left.
[close]

Spoiler

The Rook, a high defense destroyer. I kind of wanted to make it like a space turret with engines, so it's got one large energy turret in the center, and two small universals in the back (missiles, pd, etc)
[close]

Spoiler

The Verge automated attack frigate. It has twin cannons on the back with long barrels sticking out to the front nose of the craft (not shown), and several small energy turrets.
[close]

Spoiler
                         
The Slave Miner, an automated asteroid miner. It deploys Mite drones to assist with mining and combat.
[close]

Spoiler

The Felid, my first kitbash. Everyone seems to like messing around with the hound, so I figured I would take it in a completely different direction. It's a quick phase ship that uses missiles instead of ballistics.

That last hound kitbash may have just made my day.

Honestly, if it is too much work or if I lose interest, I abandon it or put it on hold (indefinitely). Like the Antediluvians or Serenity - Firefly.

Project Batavia, Tore Up Plenty and Zorg are still fully supported and updated.

Took Erick's idea, made a faction for the rebels to fight - how about SilverMoon Corp?

Very impressive Arumac, they feel a bit like the offspring between Tri-Tachyons and Zorgs. The Roundhead is a weird one, i'm curious to see how it plays.

Erick, what kind of weapons will they have? Vanilla built in? Also for the balance, if it's not a total conversion, how are you going to balance the fighters? Talons are currently the lowest cannon fodder of the game, if you give even one vulcan to your fighters, they are going to have the same firepower as Talons for a lower cost and greater number, even if they have paper armor.

Bjorn, still stuck with paint eh? For your sprites, i don't know, like Erick's tiny ships, i'm not sure if the player will even be able to see them on the field, your fighter on the left for example is smaller than pretty much anything in the game and will be almost invisible, unless if they have big engine trail to compensate. About Castor&Pollux, individually yes, they are weaker than the original Lasher. However they will always fight by pair, Castor is the energy based Lasher while Pollux is the Ballistic one.

I said i'll stop spamming the thread but this time i tried something new, my very first ship animation! Behold the Lemon-Bridge!

Well, it's just a yellow buffalo, meh.

I want to know how those would work in game, that's amazing!

This is called me throwing my missile swarm at you, and by swarm I mean massacre, and by missiles... I actually just mean missiles, there's actually not much to it really.

It'd be great if Alex replaced all the Buffalo with blue Lemon-Bridges for the next release. So many confused and disappointed players  :D

I'm submitting the same ship again for another round of polishing before applying finishing touches to the other ships:
Spoiler
Current spriteUsing systemDarker variation
[close]

@kazi: Is the darker version what you had in mind when you were talking about the highlights? I think it looks more realistic, but I feel like the exaggerated contrast of the lighter armor makes the ship's form more apparent when it's in battle and there are distractions everywhere.

I couldn't come up with a good lighting scheme that I didn't feel was overbearing, so I just went with it and decided to use the lights only while the ship's system is active. What do you think?

@mendonca: I tried to faff about with the armor plating lines as you suggested, but I never managed to improve it much. I think a big part of the problem is that I want to keep the armor looking smooth, which is pretty limiting when it comes to detail.

Gotcha!

Very nice, Sundog. Reminds me of Sophons from Endless Space. ;)

Sophons eh? Damn Gotcha, you make me want to kitbash endless space concept arts now! For your ship Sundog, i may prefer the lighter variation but that's just me. Also what kind of system will it use? The glow effect is cool!

I wouldn't mind that at all, HELMUT. Sophon ships look so stunning. Get to work then! *cracks whip* ;D
