Talarian Starbase

Post by Cmndr_Parker1 »

I'm currently working on adding the Talarians to my mod as a full playable race in instant action. I feel pretty good about the ships so far, but my starbase isn't exaxtly coming out the way I want it. Maybe I'm being over critical of myself. What do you guys think?

some of the ships will be golden brown and others will be grey. I feel this adds some variety to the Talarians. I decided to go with grey for the structures, it gives them an older appearance.

i'd probably go with a weathered gold to give it a worn old look :)

You'll fart your way to a warning if you dont stop double posting and going off topic on other peoples threads.....


I still think weathered' look better personally based on their ships :)

Never played star trek legacy....I heard it was very unstable. All my Talarian bases will have wing-like architecture, and the starbase design is based on the flying wing concept. Phantom....I value your opinion very much, so tell me if you like these better.

Looks better than grey lol, think its a little too bright though, why not experiment and make parts like beams and your docking areas a dark golden color and vary it a little? :)

yes Phantom is right, though I'd lower the colour saturation before you darken it... worth a shot.

Have fun with them :wink:

I don't really have anyone to help me work on this mod, so it's very slow going. But so far I have added the dominion, ferengi, and sona as playable races, and I'm working on adding the talarians, gorn, and tholians as playable races. I'm considering adding the yridians, maque, sheliac, and tamarians. The Vulcans, Bajorans, Ferengi, and pirates play moderate roles in the single player missions I've done so far. But as soon as I am done with the Talarians, I'll keep moving forward with the mod...and hopefully I will be able to finish it, and finish it soon.
Thanks for all the advice on the talarians so far.

Terradyhne.....Glad to see you back here at fleetcommand, stick around for awhile, your skills are needed, we lost sooo many veterans over the years.
