This is beautiful.
that looks very well for WIP.
I'm not sure, but I really doubt it. I can't imagine how would it work, when both mods would use a ships with the same name, but differently modified in each of them. I think you would have to do it yourself.
Well, i don't think I know anyone who likes it, but I can tell you the reasons why I've put it there:
1. analogy: command frigate -> command corvette. They have the same antenna and they do the same thing. When you see it for the first time, you know what it is, it's important. (BTW I don't even like the antenna on the corvette.)
2. it's easily recognizable, even from the distance. It's handy when the ship is yours or when you need to find where is the inhibitor which won't let you jump. You can find it between other ships.
3. military ships aren't pretty. For me, the bigger value in this case is that it's practical, than issue of the aesthetics.
4. the antenna can't be on top as the command corvette has it, because there's bridge and rocket silos. This is a good spot for it, nothing stays in its way even during the starting animation.
I think about my ships a lot, what I want them to look like and what I want people to think when they see them.
So yeah, you don't like the antenna, no one does. But answer me, did you know what this ship is when you've saw it? What did you think it was? If the command/electronic warfare/AWACS or any other kind of a support frigate didn't come to your mind, than this frigate design is fail.
But I suppose it could have big radar dishes, dozen antennas pointing at all directions or even a sensor array big as the ship itself, but I think it would be worse than a weird dome and a this.
Thank you. The Drone frigate will have two types of drones for a different use. Good news is that I'm finishing the first defense type (those will be in a classic "ball" around the frigate and will be able to shoot part of the incoming missiles. The attack drones will be a swarm of tiny ships capable of free move).
So I'm finally planning to release the 0.0.3 alpha right here on moddb. This version should look much less like a WIP, all icons, descriptions and research should be there, as well as some new ships (I hope I'll finish a vgr supercarrier by the time of release).
You can expect it around Christmas.
When I think about it, I remember seeing a video on youtube where Hiigaran BCs fight againts Aliance Mon Calamari cruisers, it could be Warlords mod I guess.
Thank you, that's my goal.
And you can look forward to lot more. There are going to be some new destroyers, battlecruisers, stations and others made completely from scratch.
And I don't really need concepts, I'm drawing my own, but wallpapers, why not. Show me what you can do, it's a nice idea.
But what is really welcomed are videos. Anyone can download the mod, make a video, post it on youtube or send it to me and if it's good, I'll place it right here between my videos with name of the author.
Is it too obvious?
The regular vgr corvette is already shaped little like a Taser, I've just used it and supported it. After all, it's an ElectroMagnetic Pulse corvette, so if you look at this ship and you think about the Taser, the analogy is perfect, you don't have to look at the name or description, you instantly know what this thing do.
It's the same concept as the artillery frigate. It doesn't look like an artillery, but it shoots like an artillery. It has up facing missile launchers (like the BC) and missiles with very long turns. So when it fires, you just know it's an artillery, because it has trajectory which reminds of the balistic curve.
Or the command frigate with an omni directional device and typical antenna.
I'm not only trying to make my ships look like Vaygr or Hiigaran, but also that you can recognize its purpose at the first sight.
Well, I think I can make my next video in a similar style.
Well, I guess there's only me. At least until I'll find someone for scripting.
Thank you. And yes, this is exactly what this mod is about.
You should do more like this one, it's just awesome.
That would be also a LOT of work. But there is already something like this here on moddb, but for Star Wars Empire at War, and it's called "Sci-Fi at War".
For HW2 you have Star Wars: Warlords, Babylon 5: War Without End and also some Star Gate mod too. But I don't know about any mod which would combine it all together and I won't make such mod.
I don't play EVE so it's not very likely.
There is a new little forum section here on moddb for anyone who's interested.
I'm still not decided, those things don't have their own unit caps yet. I am waiting for the hiigaran drone frigate and hiigaran drones and then I'll see.
ArmA 2 is an OFP sequel, Dragon's Rising was made from scratch, it has only the name. ArmA 2 is definitely better.
I've send you a PM.
The black hole is very nice. Yeah, it would look a little different but I like it. The radioactive and dust cloud are nice too, but I would make then slower and maybe made of a bigger particles.
I like this one.
I can't wait!
