This is a side-project I'm working on where I try to make a set of ships based on the same design but with different purposes. So far the set has 7 ships, as follows: fighter, interceptor, bomber, heavy assault fighter, mining ship, gas harvester, repair/salvaging ship, all with a poly count between 18 to 26k. At the moment I'm yet to think of a name for these ships so if you've got some ideas I'd really like if you'd share your thoughts via a comment here. Also, I want to add more ships to the pack, to have somewhere between 8 to 10, so if you have some suggestions as to what other variations would be cool to make, please let me know.

  1. Hey SolCommand, looks like the only ship type missing is a scout/stealth ship. On the ship names, I would just make up a corporation and just add some value to it like: Merkon HAF-001 (Merkon Heavy Assualt Fighter).

  3. How about a construction ship for RTS games?

  4. Hey guys

    DarkOne, I just tried making a stealth scout version but it looks a bit weird, doesn't fit with the rest of the models so I wont be adding that version to the ship pack, but thanks for the idea as it helped me start a whole new model.

    JF, cheers for that suggestion. Based on it, I finished making a field command ship that looks great. I also draw some inspiration for it from eve online minmatar ships. I updated the picture, you can find it right at the bottom.

    John, I believe the current "repair" ship fits as a construction ship just perfectly, as it is fitted with 6 robotic arms with various tools thus it can do pretty much anything in the range of: build, scuttle, repair, salvage, etc.

  5. UPDATE:

    Darkone, looks like I finally managed to put together a stealth scout too hehe. Its based a little on the design of Matrix ships.

  6. The idea is very good. Within constructive criticism i must say that the types of ships also reflect their size which makes using the same sized body frame difficult to use in a realistic way.

    Now on to naming ...

    FIGHTER = LF-3 'Pinstrike' All Purpose Light Fighter

    INTERCEPTOR = AT-5 'Razortail' Advanced Tactical Interceptor

    BOMBER = AG-2 'Riptide' Tactical Support Bomber

    HEAVY ASSAULT FIGHTER = SF-4 'Fireleaf' Tactical Superiority Fighter

    MINNING SHIP = GMM-2 'Copperhead' Ground Minning Support Vessel

    GAS HARVESTER = GSM-2 'Streammer' or more affectionate known as the "Cosmic Fart Pump" (just kidding).

    REPAIR & CONSTRUCTION = RC-8 'BlockHammer' Repair Support Vessel.

    FIELD COMMAND SHIP = TFC-1 'Legion' Tactical Field Command and Control.

    STEALTH SCOUT = SR-9 'SkyMyst' Stealth Tactical Recon Ship.

    Hope you like them :)

  7. Hey Micmanos
    Yes, you're correct, it's rather difficult to use the same hull for different purposes but I figured if we can do it with cars, why not with spaceships hehe. I mean, you have your BMW "X" car based on which you have a sedan model, a convertible, a coupe, touring etc. so even if they look rather similar, they're different in design details and purpose. That's what I tried doing here, somewhat.

    About the names, wow, they're so cool that I'm gonna use them all !
    Cheers for that :)


    UPDATE:
    Made slight changes to the mining ship to make it look a bit more industrial and I also added a new model, the cargo transport ship. I will post images shortly.

  8. Cheers? Just Cheers?
    No, no, you've misunderstood ... I want my face spray-painted on the hull of each ship :p

    CARGO TRANSPORT = CF-2 'Bullfrog' Cargo Freighter

  9. Roger, sorry for the misunderstanding sir :)

    Name changed for the transport ship.

    Cheers ... again :p
