I like SoaSE just 'cause its pretty much slow paced RTS in space, mixed with some light 4X elements. Very enjoyable game, but you must not be allergic to RTSs in general. Now that I think of it, it reminds me of Conquest: Frontier Wars, which too was very good space RTS. 




Data -> RE: Kalthaniell's Shipyards (7/19/2011 8:32:42 PM)

Yap, I've also read it's slow paced if you choose so....reminds me of DW, will give it a try. Thx all for your input on my usual OT ranting.




Kalthaniell -> RE: Kalthaniell's Shipyards (7/20/2011 10:40:23 AM)

Already done the first ship. I must admit I was quite impressed by the games graphics. I'm going to make a couple more shipsets out of it for sure. Anyway, I haven't picked the colour scheme yet. I like grey best, but that might be just my 'humanish' tendencies and I want this shipset to be 'alienish' :P. Any suggestions from more experienced sci-fi fans?

Heres the ships:

Most of it is made out of the big advent carrier J HG T requested. Hope SoSE fans don't mind the changes I made. I usually try to make new ships using parts of others, rather then copy the original ones.

I really like the first one...that is magenta? the comination looks cool.




Igard -> RE: Kalthaniell's Shipyards (7/20/2011 2:38:50 PM)

All 3 colours work really well, but the magenta one looks the best IMO.




tjhkkr -> RE: Kalthaniell's Shipyards (7/20/2011 9:34:29 PM)

I agree, all the colors (or is it colours? [:D] ) work well.




Data -> RE: Kalthaniell's Shipyards (7/20/2011 9:38:15 PM)

Being a non-native english speaker I also wondered about that some time ago and found that there are actually a ton of words where you can use both variations like for color / colour. I think it's about the uk english and american english.




tjhkkr -> RE: Kalthaniell's Shipyards (7/20/2011 9:39:49 PM)

I did not know that Data...
I know IGard is from Scotland. I am from the U.S.
May I ask where you bode from?




J HG T -> RE: Kalthaniell's Shipyards (7/20/2011 9:48:50 PM)

The Unity is pleased, Kalthaniell.

Though, this individual might complain a little about changing the features of the beautiful Halcyon, the new version still looks excellent. Blue, green or magenta would be this ones choices for colors.




Data -> RE: Kalthaniell's Shipyards (7/20/2011 9:57:51 PM)

I'm romanian, TJ. That goes to show you: I thought you were israeli (because of the Moshe Dayan quote I think) and Igard english.
I will refrain from making skirt comments though [sm=00000506.gif]




Igard -> RE: Kalthaniell's Shipyards (7/20/2011 10:20:19 PM)

YOU'RE A ROMULAN!!!!????!!!!!

Oh wait, I misread that. You're a Romanian. [:D]

And FYI, the Kilt struck fear into the hearts of all those on the battlefield. Mainly because we don't wear anything underneath! [;)]

TMI Igard...... TMI! [:D]




WoodMan -> RE: Kalthaniell's Shipyards (7/21/2011 2:03:33 AM)

Third colour is best (the whiteish one, it most natural looking of the three.




tjhkkr -> RE: Kalthaniell's Shipyards (7/21/2011 5:56:52 AM)

Romania? Really?
That is neat. But I also do not want to see the cost of shipping the DW CDRom [:D] to you...
And do not feel bad about IGard... the only way I knew is because I kept hearing bagpipes in the cargo hold. [;)][:D]

No Moshe Dayan was just one of those guys who had a classic saying for all occasions... that one was at a press conferece.

that clears it....we should expect to see romulans with kilts and bagpipes in a future mod [:)]

I would not like to find myself figthing these guys. I wonder how a romulan version of William Wallace looks like though....

Seems most of you like magneta best (though I always thought of it as pinkish-violet :P )so I'll be applying that to all the ships. This colour scheme reminds me of a race from the last seasons of the Star Trek DS9. Dominion was the name I think.




Tigan -> RE: Kalthaniell's Shipyards (7/21/2011 9:26:14 AM)

I go for the last ship. The one with the white lights, though the magenta ship really looks great, too. The Dominion.....yeah, it really looks like one of their battle ships. I think the purple design would fit well to an insectoid race.

It´s always a pleasure to look at your moddings Kalthaniell. [&o]  and use´em [:D]

It would be great if you go for the white overlay. Could use it for my revamped securian warrior race.




Kalthaniell -> RE: Kalthaniell's Shipyards (7/21/2011 10:29:13 AM)

Thx Tigan.

I could do both acctually and release the greyish one as alternate version. It's 30 sec of work for each ship, so it's not a problem. Btw, I've done military ships and now I'm starting to work on civilian. With luck the set(s) will be ready by tomorrow.




Data -> RE: Kalthaniell's Shipyards (7/21/2011 10:35:24 AM)

Dominion, good memories again [:)]
I think Kalthaniell can make the resources available and then we can use whatever colors we like to take it further, kinda like a second tier modders [:)]




Tigan -> RE: Kalthaniell's Shipyards (7/21/2011 10:39:45 AM)

Cannot wait to see your designs, Kathaniell [:)]




Data -> RE: Kalthaniell's Shipyards (7/21/2011 10:42:35 AM)

hey Kalthaniell, are you an android by any chance? I fully support the rythm in which you work [:)]

Hmmm.. not sure... Is there any way I could check if I am, that does not involve skin cutting and exposing my internal organs? :P

If someone really wants to I don't mind sending my resource files. I work in Gimp, so I guess most of you would be proficient with it.




Data -> RE: Kalthaniell's Shipyards (7/21/2011 10:57:55 AM)

Not me, I'm perfectly happy with what you're doing and how you're doing it [:)]

Seems I went a bit romulan on this one. Think it's going to be a frigate, looks fast.




J HG T -> RE: Kalthaniell's Shipyards (7/21/2011 12:02:23 PM)

Nice Illuminator re-design. Reminds me of Romulans too.




Data -> RE: Kalthaniell's Shipyards (7/21/2011 12:39:44 PM)

Wings extended a bit and it would look like remans also




Igard -> RE: Kalthaniell's Shipyards (7/21/2011 2:13:00 PM)

Cool ship! Yes it does have a Romulan looking design. Reman colour scheme though.




tjhkkr -> RE: Kalthaniell's Shipyards (7/21/2011 3:32:21 PM)

Captain, sensors indicate vessel approaching, appears to be Romulan in design, but materials are not standard for Romulan construction...

All jokes aside, these ships looke good... I prefer the white, but whatever color/colour you use, I will use the mod!
Has the mod been completed yet?

These guys look like they are wearing kilts to me? Have we discovered IGard's fascination with the Romulans? [:D]

Igard, I pray you know this is meant in good natured fun! [8D]




Data -> RE: Kalthaniell's Shipyards (7/21/2011 4:06:22 PM)

If those can be called kilts than what they are holding are mini bagpipes.
I hope so too TJ, for me highlander means "in the end there can be only one" [8|]
