The reapers have returned from dark space. With Earth under attack and the mass relays in a state of chaos from refugees and the councils fleet engaging reaper forces the galaxy is a mess. The outcome is unknown, the warfare is devastating. The galaxy will never be the same.

It looks really good! I don't see anything that needs changing.

Its good, but you should try to give it the feeling of as if it was a station, with some humans who can operate on it.
As of right now, it looks as if it was a giant sniper rifle.
Also, make the shape non angular on the "barrel". It would not make sense for a giant mass accelerator weapon to be cubed. The solar panels add a nice feeling to it.I would also suggest to make it a bit shorter on the "Barrel". and make the barrel half openend, simmilar to how mass relays look. They look like omniblade or claws, with two parralel bars.
I also would suggest you remove the Giant cerberus symbol and give it some light to give it the feeling as there was a giant generator or mass
eezo core or something. Also, try to make it look more rectangular. Cerberus guns mostly look rectangular.

Will probably add some more evidence of habitation if more people ask for it.
If you look at the business end you'll see that the barrel is circular on the inside. The angular parts covering it are for cooling purposes.
Yes, A shorter barrel might be a good idea, considering that the length of the barrel doesn't contribute much in a relatively frictionless enviroment (i.e. space).
I'll consider the open barrel idea.
I'm not going to remove the awesomely massive Cerberus symbol.
I guess some power conduits would be nice, Skylin5gtr can add that when he models and textures it, as he's a pro at that kinda stuff.
Cerberus likes hexagons. I don't think I should make this thing more rectangular. If more people say that I should do that, then I will, though.

that is even better than before, if that is possible, personally i would keep it like it is in this concept, before it looked to flat, but now it looks like it belongs in the mass effect universe and i believe it will fit in just nicely with all the other WMD's

Thanks. I hope I achieved the look I wanted to go with: massive inter-system sniper cannon.

rereading the above comments, i have to agree, some form of living quarters on the ship, and a shorter barrel defiantly, i also like how the cerberus symbol stands out, not just painted on,

too bad you cant add animations or separate moving part, if you could, it would be awesome to have the barrel move, so every time it is fired you see the recoil from the thing as it psychically jumps back from each shot.

I'm thinking that If I add habitation modules on it then I'll have to remove either the wings or the solar arrays, otherwise it'll get too cluttered. Skylin5gtr can always texture some "window lights" on the model, so that the model isn't excessively complicated. If any of you have ideas on how evidence of habitation should be "displayed" then tell me, and I'll see what I can do.

why not incorporate the habitation section and control room into the wings, if they are the right size, in my mind this thing is bigger than a carrier or the size of the crucible, but i bet its smaller, could you perhaps show an image o it next to a ship so we can see the size, if its not too much to ask that is

edit, like the colour scheme of the original thought so would suggest keeping that, maybe a bit more red

Definitely agree, the indication of habitation doesn't have to be sticking out, as indeed it might be too cluttered. Some sort of integrated living quarter lights or bubble styled thing would be fine. Also, I love how it's looking now, except maybe only one wing, just so it looks different and not too ship like.

agree, that way it doesn't look to symmetrical and stands out a bit

size chart: Flickr.com

mostly estimates though. In the mod it could be anything from the size of a Reaper to size the of a Alliance dreadnought.

right that cleared things up, place the habitats and control rooms in the wings mate, that way it not over crowding and you can still keep the same design, if at all possible

Agreed, I saw that on the forums, very nice! Hope it will be in-game.

Dont add habitation modules, or at least dont make them like seperate body parts connected by a bar or a cylinder.
When i think of habitation modules, I think of parts in the construction that are protuded. Imagine a half hexagonal module protruding from the structure`.

Or you can make this easier on your self and add some parts that have specific lit tight lines lines that look like windows.

Google images: "Tec starbase" you will see what i mean, but with white, bluish lights.

or google images "mass effect concept art"
There are two images that depict a station and what looks like the citadel with blueish buildings.
The stations name is arcturus station mass effect.

that's what i meant, build it in, not out, so like have windows cut in to the model like on voyager from star trek, where the hull is indented from the windows like i highlight here Moddb.com
its the highlighted red bit

Haha, will see what can do then, but be warned that all it'll look like is a lot of specks, considering the size of this thing.

Worth it. That's all I have to say.

hey why not make the windows like two three decks big, like a couple of observation decks, WMD posts can be pretty boring, as soon as you enter the battle it is over with one shot, so it i more like a cruise liner with a giant *** cannon added to the front/side

The prongs you added on the sides are cool, but I don't much care for the black things on the top and bottom

Got those "solar arrays" from the Cerberus Minuteman station's design. If enough people agree with you, then I'll remove them.

keep the solar panels, makes it look like it needs alot of power to fire,

I like it! the one thing i'd say for sure is that i agree with lofty and the guest on the living quarters thing. Would just give it that little extra detail.
