Hey Guys,

I am really surprised about that many people interested in this mod,
much more than i expected for the beginning, and it makes me really
happy, that there are really lots of watchers...

There is much hope for this mod to become something great, but everything
depends on YOU. Yes, YOU!

A Reminder:
We need:

  • people who can make models and textures
  • people who can make missions

with greetings from space

So have you any idea of what these ships and other units may look like?

Yes. Why?

Well I thought the reason would be pretty much obvious. If your requesting help then additional details and reference images is more likely to get you the help you need than simply making the help request. In every mod I've done that I've needed help with (which hasn't been often) I've always tried to provide as much detail as possible.

This would not fit into the news page, or it would be that boring because of its lenght, that nobody reads it.

No, but you could always post some concept images.

Is it okay for you all, if the pictures aren't that good?

Spaceship_2012. Never worry to much about quality. As long as others have some idea of what the ship may look like and you make it clear that its just a concept then that would be fine. I've seen some truly dreadful images posted on moddb. However. If anyone does take a shot at making anything you post they may add a bit of "personal" flair to any units that are produced.

Yes, okay, thanks for your tips, but at the
moment the pictures don't work! >:(

Don't know if you seen this, but after seeing your posted image for your "phoenix class" design, this was the unique look I came up with. However, I've contacted a modeller who specializes in organic style models, who might be able to create something far more unique. To be honest I wouldn't go with the one that you've got in mind. If your after a pure battleship style vessel then something that would resemble the look of the mythical creature would be more suited. Think of a romulan ship with a "bird" style head which contains the bridge and having a large body with a forward swept pair of wings (which may have some pretty heavy forward facing weapons).

For a direct example see the Romulan Raptor Class on this page:

Thanks for your tips, but what is the problem with
my design?
Btw you should comment on the main page or at the
newer images, as it was pure coincidence i looked
at the News site for new comments now.

I never said there was anything wrong with it. However. If you study actual scifi series (such as Andromeda) then you'll see how unique the ships look, but if you also look at the image I posted then the concept you did was made with weapon placements in almost the same places as you did.

Besides. My reply here was relevant to the topic at hand. That's why I posted it here.

Yeah, but the ships are NOT supposed to look like Phoenix,
as it would start to look cliché, yeah birds everywhere.
It is not about birds, it is about religious fanatic humans
who think they were reborn.
So i shall change the Phoenix ship design?
I think i will post conceptual arts of the ship's designs
i plan for the other factions.

Nice attitude to have to a suggestion. As for the design. Well you can go with your chosen one but I gaurentee that that the you will require model quality over quantity. We'll see how much of a 'total conversion' this mod becomes shall we.

WTF? What was wrong with that, i just told you
why i don't want it to look like a bird.
And what is the relation between that design and
quantity? You wanna say it is a bad one, don't you?

Trust me when I tell you if I thought it was a bad design you would know about it.
