My custom shipsets

Hi everyone.
I was making shipsets for DW for quite some time now, mostly for myself. As it turns out, I’ve managed to gather a large number of ships and bases, some of which you might like (I hope ;) ). Below I’ll post a couple of shipsets from various sci-fi genres and a really large heap of custom ships. All the ships were made by me, although I created most of them by simply editing various sci-fi art I found on the web. Other I just converted so they would be compatible with DW.


Here are some shipsets I consider worthy of sharing. To install any of the shipsets just unpack the files and place them in the appropriate directory in your Customization folder. For example “Matrix Games/Distant Worlds/Customization /My Theme/shipImages/family0/”.















Now the 110 ships I selected for uploading. Here are pics of 9 of them . They come in sets of 5-7 so with bases and civilian ships they would be a complete shipset. I use them as pirate ships for minorsets or majorsets. To use them, you’d have to copy the one you like to the appropriate folder in DW directory and rename them.



Feel free to edit any of the files and use them in your mods if you want. If anyone feels like he could create bases and other ships needed to create a complete shipset out of the above and use it in his mod, please do. I want to share this content so that people making mods for DW have more ship art to work with.

Enjoy.

I finished working on the gundam shipset. The credit for the amazing ship models goes to modders from 9CCN (GUNDAM Seed mod for Homeworld 2). There were some problems with position lights on freigthers but now it should work just fine.

Awesome stuff! Thank you Kalthaniel. Looks great. I especially like some of the ungrouped ships.

Oh yes, and welcome to the forums.

That's some good stuff right there. Many familiar looking ships in there. Will surely be using many of them.
Oh, and welcome to the forums!
Now, if somebody would do a shipset of Freespace 2 Humans, Shivans and Vasudans. That would be just dandy.

I actually have few Freespace Humans ships. Wanted to do all three races but I quickly forfeited this idea. Except for the evil alien race (forgot thier name) I find capital ships from that game to be a bit ugly (fighters and bombers are awesome though).

Here's a pic of what i have:



If you want J HG T, I can upload it.

@Kalthaniell
Plz, thanks! I've always thought that Freespace ships were supposed to be "semi-realistic". That's why they look militaristic, rugged and robust while still looking great. They really work best in 3D space TBH.
Anyway, upload them when you feel to it.

Like I said, I was creating that stuff for quite some time now. I never did Startrek races apart from the federation and one or two romulan ships (though I must say there are some pretty awesome startrek mods on this forum). The babylon 5 ships I did want to convert, but the resources I managed to find were of low resolution and wouldn't make good .png . Apart from that I think I have a little bit of everything. Sadly, not all is done well enough to be posted. If someone is intrested I have other stuff apart from ships I am happy to share ( race images [from mass effect among others], effects [weapons and such] and planet art).

Uploading the Freespace ships below. Enjoy

Here are the race images I was mentioning earlier. First 19 are named race_xa/race_x so you can put them in your raceimages folder right away. The rest is named nextxa/nextx so you need to rename them if you want to use them. A word of warnig though, the numbered images were replacing my customized races, not the ones from the original game, so you might want to tweak your race.txt and bias.txt files first ;)

Heres the preview




And the link to the files:

Not sure if I was supposed to post it here or create new thread :P

Cool image collection!

You can either create a new thread or edit your first post to include all the new images. Just put an update notice every time you add new stuff.

I can never tell when you're complimenting me or having a go at me, Mr. Data.

Kalthaniell, the cargobay's just my humble website. Swing by and pay me a visit, but don't steal my Romulan Ale!

Great stuff!

Like your BSG stations, where are they from?

I recognize the other stations from Star Wars, am I right?


Otherwise excellent stuff.

I believe the BSG stations are photoshop modifications of BSG bases found in various sources on the net.
Very nicely done.

Correct. In fact, all of the BSG bases are made out of one picture. The record for now is the quarian shipset, which I made out of a single pic of a quarian frigate from ME2.
The cylon bases, if I remeber correctly, I found in a star wars mod for space empires 4 (or 5). I cut the background out and converted the image into png format. One of the first pics I made for DW.
I updated the first post with GUNDAM shipset. There were plenty of robots too (or mecha? ) but I used them only for fighters and bombers.
