Thanks, it's my pleasure. I haven't released a complete family because i'm having problems finding freighters and bases. If however enough ppl want me to do so then I will release one that is based on the mod originally released by conflictX ( Modified to include the other races of course ).

Awesome!!
 
This is looking very neat;
 
When the modding tools get more comprehensive we can start setting up galactic startrek & B5 scenarios or campaigns!
 
 
Wooohoo!

Thanks.  I wanted it to look like the station had ships docked there.  I used the ship designer in Galactic Civilizations II: Twilight of the Arnor to create the base.

I have something similar going for the star war-mod.
Not had time to see how a station like this would work ingame ^^

This is what it looks like in-game. My idea is that it would be a small spaceport.

Here is another base with "docked" vessels. I would like some feedback on this. Are these designs worthy or are they a load of suck? Don't be shy...if you hate it then you hate it....it will be ok.

I think I'm done with the Earth Alliance. This set contains all Earth Alliance ships I have found and some custom base designs made with the help of the ship designer from Galactic Civilizations II: Twilight of the Arnor. So, without further hand wringing I give you......THE EARTH ALLIANCE! lol

These are the race images I use for the Earth Alliance, Narn, Centauri, and Minbari. Use them if you want to.

Might be just a nitpick, but no ships in your screenshots have engine glows...

Well, in the star trek universe they used Warp Drives not chemical rockets.  That is why I didn't add engine glows.  I think I added them to the Babylon 5 ships though ( if I remember correctly ).  Engine glows aren't hard to add.  I used Gimp to modify the images for DW ( Gimp is free to download ).

Well, no ships in the game use chemicals either. It's your mod though, you decide how it is. I'm a bit picky about new shipsets, i don't just add them because they are available, i want the ones that look nice and fit well in the game. I prefer utilitarian like ships to "work of art" ones.

PS. B5 ships did not seem to have their engines and lights set when i checked (days ago though).

This is a pic of some of the Shadow ships I've managed to collect and put in game ( I have: Capitalship, Cruiser, Destroyer, Frigate, Escort, small-large freighter ).
