Call me ambitious, but making ships so me is a product of my imagination; therefore, I need a roleplay for my imagination. Eventually, these ships will be involved in a Roleplay/game I'll start soon, but I still have to workout the details.

EDIT: Well, it's started, check it out Here It's never too late to sign up! It's got some stories worth reading in there too, if you're not into the whole RP thing.

For now, the only thing that exists here are fighters. I'll work it from the ground up.

Anyway, I won't bother posting the original ships I built with the default sprites unless anyone requests them.

Randall Industries
After the collapse of the inner ring, Randall, a small civilian craft manufacturer based in the outer ring, started to produce armed craft for its own protection. Soon, more buyers appeared, and Randall has a steady income from multiple planets in the outer rim.

Image
This here is Randall's first manufacturing-ready model: The E-7R Missile Fighter. E is for Entry model, 7 is the total number of revisions, and R is for Randall. This fighter relies on two slow-yet-maneuverable missiles to down opponents. One interesting note is the fighters ability to enter atmospheres and be instantly capable of fighting air to air.

Image

At Kebert Xela's suggestion to start building bigger ships, Randall has released it's first corvette model. Able to mount two light weapons in the back, it is a solid close-range escort craft.

Balkan Corporation
Balkan Corporation existed before the collapse of the inner ring and was a business superpower back in the day. Now that society in the inner ring has all but collapsed, the Balkan Corporation has lost nearly all of its schematics, money, and blueprints, as well as a couple handfuls of CEO's, and a couple million employees.

Nevertheless, the surviving businessmen of Balkan board are determined to reclaim all the money they've lost.
Image
Balkan designed their fighter around a common shotgun. This "space tank," as it was promptly nicknamed, puts out numerous flak rounds at once in a wide spread. Balkan cleverly saves money on manufacturing by overlooking a paint job.


Aces of the Outer Ring




Vladimir "Akula" Markov
Image

Vladimir served in his planetside militia as a child. There he saw tax collectors burn his neighbor's house down for inability to pay taxes, corporate dropships sacking cities in the relentless pursuit of money. Vladimir waited for his opportunity, and eventually got his hands on a E-7R fighter. With the help of his comrades, he was able to make some deadly modifications, and some sympathetic ones, like painting the hull of his craft red in honor of all blood his friends and family shed. After a few sorties, He earned the nickname "Akula" for his sharklike-precision and awareness in the skies.
Special:
Red Missile: A very fast missile fires from the front of Markov's plane. Good for long-range or precision attacks.


Jeff "Wolfram" Cormag
Image
Jeff Cormag grew up on the backburner. On moon riddled with petty conflict Jeff was often kept out of the way for fear he might get injured. Jeff observed revolt after revolt. Each uprising's idea didn't seem to matter, each caused only more strife and suffering. At the age of twenty, Jeff sold his property to purchase Balkan's Flack Fighter and painted it a gung-ho army green, as well as placing the turret on a 360 degree swivel and doubling the amount of shots fired in one burst. He used it to instill order in the population, eventually earning the nickname "Wolfram" for his dog-like instincts and watchful eye. Now, five years later, he sees the collapse of the inner ring as an opportunity to spread law and justice to the galaxy.
Special:
2X shots fired
360 degree turret rotation.

Wessly "Yellow" Royce
Image
Educated in peace, Royce was on track to graduate from the Outer Ring's most prestigious engineering university, only to drop out. Sick of his professors and peers taking credit for his ideas and research, Wessly turned his brilliance to another one of his passions: Warfare. He crafted his own space fighter, more maneuverable than his professors would dream of and equipped with rail-gun technology thought impossible to replicate after the collapse of the inner ring. Wessly painted the hull yellow: the color of foreboding, and goodbye.
Goodbye to his enemies, that is.
Fueled with ruthless ambition, Wessly seeks to leave his mark on outer-ring history.
Special:
Rail gun


???

Walker Relay Station
Image

The Walker Relay Station has not currently been contacted since the collapse of the inner rim, but the heat signatures on board indicate the crew survives, but may have no way to communicate with the outer ring.
A note about the design of the station:
Weapons were placed far away from the station to minimize damage to equipment as well as personal. This strategy does seem to be effective at saving lives, but ineffective as the point defense guns are often skewed to protect a certain side.


Warlock
Image

Rumors of a moniker "Warlock" have floated around the outer ring. Some say he has single handedly downed entire squadrons of military craft before the collapse of the inner ring. Some say it's an alien craft that has warped here through a black hole. Some say Warlock is only a myth. And some say he's just as mysterious as he is powerful.


IPAF Support Destroyer.

Image

Before the collapse of the inner ring, the Inter-Planetary Allied Forces constructed a powerful peacekeeping navy. Above, is the recovered blueprint for the IPAF Valkyrie, a support destroyer that sports two heavy beamers, two light beamers, and a rack of long-range anti ship missiles. The very existence of the IPAF remains in doubt, but there must surely be something to learn from their imprint on the past.

Remnants

Image

Remnants are the civilian survivors of the collapse of the inner rim. The few that owned transport and frigate ships quickly armed their ships with what little weapons the could salvage. As a consequence, their weapons and in-experienced crew translate to longer reload times, smaller clip sizes, and ineffective tactics.

You'll want to replace the stock weapon sprites with some of horsemonster's weapon sprites. The stock sprites look out of place on the ship parts you're using.

I don't like the Randall Industries ship's coloring. You probably should stick with one shade of a color with a ship that small. Maybe you could make the centre part the cyan you've already used, and use a slightly turquoise color for the rest?

The Balkan Industries ship... is an uninteresting block. The concept of a rectangle shaped ship is just ... boring. There's not much I can say without completely changing the design.

The Royce seems incomplete, you might want to add a bit to the back. It just doesn't look like enough a ship with a back like that.

The relay station isn't bad. The sprites seem to fit with each other well enough, excluding the satelite dish.

The Warlock has a decent design, but it doesn't make sense for all the weapons to be in the rear. Again, with the stock sprites. They don't fit.

I hope that didn't sound too harsh or too lenient. I'm just trying to finally use some of my lurker wisdom here.

Congrats! Youve been promoted to head designer for a car company! Now for your first design are you going to cover the car in tires? In axles? In bumpers? NO! Your going design something that uses the right parts for the right places.

It doesn't sound discouraging at all! Thanks mate!

The dish rotates back and fourth along that corner, so that breaks up some of the blocky-ness.

I was in the process of figuring out a "tail" for Yellow, but I just couldn't figure it out.

But yeah, Revisions shall be made.

So, where can I find horsemonster's sprites?

1. Don't use yellow text on the forum for pete's sake. It's impossible to read on white.
2. Looking for custom sprites? Check the Custom Content forum
3. Screenshots at normal zoom, please.

1. Alrighty.
2. Awesome. Thanks!
3.Thar ya go ;)

I re-worked the Balkan craft, making it look more tank-like, replaced all the wepon sprites with sprites from horsemonster's detailed wepons pack, and made some minor additions to yellow.

The one main change I think you should make to any of the ships is to break up the flat back of the 'space tank' with some thrusters or exhaust or something, it'll make it look a lot better. You could also make the grey on the yellow ship darker so it contrasts with the yellow more and is therefore more visible. The station and the last ship I really like however. They're nice, clean and aesthetically appealing. The backstory's nice as well; although cliched the setting of an ultra capitalist dystopian future tends to be a good place to start a good story, so I'm looking forward to seeing more

These seem mostly decent, but they really need proper depthing. Especially the IPAF destroyer. Also, that shiny section on aforementioned ship has to go.

The section below the Kae-mch 127 in the middle. It does not fit well.

Public Service Announcement: Kaelis's new Shiny Sections work quite well with the SW-ized DST sections, and with HorseMonster's sections.

They do not work well with any other variety of SWA section.

At all.

Noted. I'll modify the IPAC destroyer later.

In the meantime. The game's first corvette:

Description above. Bold letters = player characters.

Not really part of PA, but I don't feel like making another thread for it.

Since Everything I've built is small so far, I thought I'd try something a little bigger. I may introduce it as an IPAF ship. Maybe.

Credits the Horsemonster, as always, for the detailed weapons sprites.

EDIT: C'mon? No comments? Really guys? Really? *Hangs head in shame*

Sorry, it doesn't work for me. Those Hestia-like front sections don't really fit with the rest of the ship.
