Seeing as my time is becoming more and more limited, im just going to build random ships as opposed to a more consistent fleet with a central design philosophy.
This thread will contain anything from Juggernauts to Fighters. From alien to human.
And so without further ado, i would like to present two ships that i have recently completed.
The Aurora is a new weapon system developed by Triton Shipworks
. Incorporating the latest in energy weapon technology, the Aurora is by far the cutting edge ship in the Solar System. Between its numerous particle acceleration rifles, dual blaster emplacements and centerline plasma beam weapon, it has the firepower to surpass even Terran battleship specifications. Thus far, very few have been seen on the prowl, however there have been scattered reports of these ships around Pluto, Miranda and Oberon.
This Terran Strikecraft Carrier is a fairly large ship, rivaling the biggest battleships in service. Equipped mostly with heavy cannons and missile launchers, it is armed with enough weapon to give enemies something to think about. It also sports a sizable compliment of flak cannons to thwart enemy torpedos. In addition to its weapons, it has a substantial number of heavy strike craft, bombers and fighters nestled within its mighty hangers.
This alien drone is the most basic component of the alien fleet detachment. Equipped with plasma cluster launchers and particle acceleration rifles. By themselves they don't pose a threat to anything larger than a frigate but in packs they are capable of ripping larger ships apart.
Ed: I seem to have a problem with editing the ship deployer in the Dominance, every time i set the shp in its respective box, it resets to blank after saving or moving away from the edit tab. Is this a known problem or is there something i need to do before putting the shp name in?
This Destroyer is built for one purpose, to destroy any strikecraft that threatens its flagship. Equipped with a large number of small caliber cannons, it can punch holes a couple dozen holes in a strikecraft before the pilot even knows what hit him. Additional flak turrets help intercept torpedoes and missiles.
A heavy assault fighter built by the terran based Starlight Drives
, this craft is equipped with twin heavy cannons that fire rounds loaded with submunitions that throw out smaller explosive projectiles when the main round has hit the a target. The strength of the vindicator is in its moderate speed and heavy armour. These characteristics allow it to beat through enemy firepower and deal back three times as much.
The Judge is a terran heavy bomber. Equipped with twin torpedo launchers, it is capable of laying waste to enemy ships quickly. It is also equipped with a small pulse turret on the top of its hull, to give it at least a small degree of protection against enemy fighters that seek to destroy it.
(don't hope for more updates for a while.)
