Models that never made it... Models that were cancelled....

Posted by leosake on Mar 17th, 2013

Deep inside the darker corners of our hard drives lies a dark and shadowy place... A place were cancelled projects exist... Projects that were once glorious but now doomed to remain in the shadows...

BE SURE TO CHECK OFTEN, THE LIST WILL GET RENEWED...


This thread is dedicated to all those projects that never made it to Revamp, and this is their last moments of fame:

Not much to discuss about it, it was proposed to be the UEF T3 Heavy transport, with sufficient armor to withstand lots of damage, weapon systems to retaliate, and the ability to lift heavy stuff! The engine systems were based on the Prometheus vessel... The project got canceled for various reasons...

What screamed more "armored" than a frickin' turtle??? NOTHING! Thus this project started as the heavy siege walker for the UEF.... This concept was abandoned since it didn't come out as expected...

Long range tank annihilation? You got it! This tank was proposed to be extremely light, extremely low armored, fast enough to hit and run, but with great initial damage and range. The concept was abandoned since it looked like nowadays modern tank destroyers and not something from the future...

Cutting edge spy plane with blazingly fast speed (as can be seen from the huge thrusters that occupy 1/3 of its body :P )... The project is currently canceled...

A second attempt at the UEF Siege walker class, this time with multiple plasma gattling cannons from varius sides that resembled its younger brother the "Mongoose" ... The project got canceled for various reasons, although it was the basis and the inspiration for the final version which was selected...

This unit was proposed to create variety for the UEF, by having units that could fight and build at the same time, resembling the "turtling" favor of the UEF arsenal. This project got canceled for various reasons...

Experimental tracked vehicle that had no sensors on it's own, and relied on the scouting of the traditional army, in order to unleash hell with its vast arrays of missile batteries, with 4 LRM batteries and 2 MRM batteries taking care of everything that was crazy enough to visit it's targeting space... The project got canceled for various reasons...

Moving fortress, with the ability to fire at all directions. Floating on three huge anti-gravity generators. The project started with this model, but got replaced with a better one...

One of the most iconic models of Revamp, the famous "Hammer", armed with dual high-caliber gattling cannons, and dual flak-cannon turrets, able to wreak havoc to everything on the havoc. Towering in size, intimidating as a view. The project got replaced with a better model...

Did you like the Fatboyz? What about an all-terrain all-weather one? You got it! A floating super-fortress, able to produce gunships, and eliminate threats with its massive naval-type cannons found only in huge battleships! and all of these packed under the super-structure of a hovercraft! The project was cancelled because the scientists testing it got drowned after a prototype test....
ALTHOUGH THIS UNIT IS IN 1.1 IT WON'T BE IN 1.2....
The first edition of the Revamped all-famous Fatboy. The concept was based on the classic Fatboy I which we all loved (and hated). The specific concept under-run various changes and multiple versions, the one depicted above was the first iteration. The project was replaced with a better model...

The well known "Rhino" heavy tank made its debut on SC1 and we all loved it (or hated it)... A model with the same role was needed, and what was better than a comeback of the original concept only heavier and more armored... So this time, one huge pulse cannon instead of two smaller ones, coupled with two missile batteries for close range cluster bombing.. The concept was scrapped since the role changed a bit, and a new model had emerged...

The experimental that we all loved as a shape and concept but none of us really felt like it was worth building and spending money on... The original concept behind it was for it to resemble the tripods from the War of the Worlds movies. The concept had it with two stages, submerged it could fire to airborne targets with its laser cutter tentacles (small ones and less than the original concept but far more powerful), but when it was on land, it could unleash havoc with 6 proton heavy blasters (similar to those of the original Megalith) coupled with the laser cutters.. The concept was cancelled...

This concept started accidentally through a misunderstanding, after the spider "Viper" missile launcher was finished... The concept had it that it should be blazingly fast to relocate and fire again its single but powerful missile.. The concept was cancelled since the "Viper" unit was already implemented in the form of the spider missile walker...

We all love the simple but yet effective T1 units, thus we had to implement the Cybran equivalent of a light, fast but upgrade-able T1 unit... This model came out, with the ability to get better view range, and a second blaster.. The project was cancelled and is on hold up to now...
The need for lower polied T1 units arose several months ago, and one of the first units made were the Anti-Air tanks. Thus the Illuminate counterpart was modeled with three principles in mind: Hover technology, Aeon look, Extremely low polies..... This concept was abandoned in favor of a better one...
The middle tier Illuminate machine is a little bit weak, thus something had to be designed for the second tier (T2) that would fill the gap and provide the Illuminate commanders the ability to hold longer until they lay hands on their menacing Experimentals. The best candidate was the comeback of the T2 Blazer hover tank from SC1! The veteran version (shown above) gets improved with a central sensor suite in the middle, and twin small laser cannons on the sides, giving it additional firepower and range. The project is currently on hold....
Given the fact that the Illuminate ground forces luck survivability, a unit was needed that would provide adequate survivability to a pack of units. The mobile shield walker project started with this specific role in mind! The project is currently on hold...
The time has come to reveal the new Illuminate "family/chassis" of units that was created to complement the existing ranks of the Illuminate force. Before I explain the units depicted above, I would like to elaborate on the whole "Spinner" family of units:

The Spinners came as a concept when we saw that the Illuminate forces were utilizing hover technology too much, thus limiting the creativity of their armed forces, and making the force look monotonous. Thus something scientifically advanced and at the same time aesthetically appealing had to be implemented. The idea came with magnetic levitation on huge spinning wheels (some times thin, some times huge and thick)...

The unit projects depicted above are the precursors of the current Spinner named "Equalizer", and it started with the project on the left, where two think wheels were spinning providing lightning fast speed, while the spheres on each side could launch energy projectiles at various directions. The second iteration produced the unit on the right, where the fast speed was turned down in favor of heavier weaponry and thicker armor. The chassis now had thicker wheels and twin heavy cannons on the top. As mentioned before the concept was evolved to the "Equalizer" experimental.

This makes me sad
its a shame the models are good and the ideas are great
the tank destroyer would have been awesome and super useful (who cares if it looks a little less futuristic then a king kriptor, its still awesome)

<3 Heavy transport?! hubba hubba!

I really like the turtle Idea. Although these didn't seem to work out they are still wonderful in design and creativeness.
I applaud you good people. May these great models not fade away, but emulate themselves in the history of this splendid mod.

Models that would take me eons to make thrown out because they dont...fit. A shame.

As stated before, the T3 carrier is a good model; maybe increase it's size and make it a T4 carrier? Also, I like the idea of a T4 missile launcher. Not so much for gameplay reasons, but because nobody has one at the moment...

That turtle based walker looks promising. Hope you don't scrap the whole thing because that really does just scream UEF. Some of the other designs look great too. Can't wait to see what these inspired, got replaced by or favored for.

The hover fatboy was a good reuse of the chassis,but in game redundancy of the fatboy family being amphibious and UEF navy makes it questionable in function.

Ah, now that I read the description more carefully, I see "After many reworks the concept changed to a more armored version with crab-like legs and with an impressive loadout, having the same weapons as the previous version along with two LRM batteries and two dual photon blasters..." Silly me, why didn't I notice that before?

still the crab-like legs version is the one depicted with black color...the original concept is with white...but since the concept is put on hold, the name went to a completely different concept, which is the chimera you are referring to ;)

NOOOO! don't lose the idea for the new kraken you hit it spot on in the info it looks great but not worth building and that one you have done there is insane tbh if you choose not to use that one might as well remove the old one or something, Great work other wise.

The Tank Fort is a great idea the model is not that bad as well as a few others.
Why is the hover fat boy here if it is being used with the new 1.1b?

Great work on the Mod and thanks for us to have a look at what will only be remembered here as what could of been :)

For the Kraken thing time will show....
The Tank Fortress is still there with a better model as we stated...
As for the hover fatboy, it is in 1.1, it won't be in 1.2 ;)

Thanks alot, this is the exact reason that this thread was started for :) and also for you guys to elaborate and build NEW ideas based on concept that weren't quite viable through our perspective ;)

thanks again, really appreciated!

I think the Kraken could use an ENTIRE remodeling and reconceptualisation.It's too flimsy looking for a walker.

Go see the Ceph walkers from Crysis, if you want a "Kraken" Walker.

*claps*

Interesting line of thought on the Magnetic Wheels.
Yes,it was ether Walking/Striding or Hovering,but the Illuminate seemed to have no good "wheeled" units,because that was UEF!

But this is something entirely unique the UEF wont be doing....If they did, it would be another style i remember seeing somewhere....

The new Equalizer is most certainly both the most scientifically advanced and aesthetically pleasing.

In my opinion, I think the shield bot could use a bit of a leg redo, if you ever do more work on it. It looks like the bot would have a rather awkward time trying to walk around.

I'm glad to see that no ideas were cancelled with the Illuminate, only put on hold or revamped.
