new design path for terran ships (image heavy)

Post by uss_capital »

i am thinking on changing the terran ship design path , they would look something like the following

possible new cruiser design (still very early wip design) , it is 700 poly and will be having more detail added to it . i have decided to lower the polycount on all new ships , this way bigger fleet battles can happen with the new weapons thats in testing

I like the design well enough (though I can't see the pics right now) but I've liked you previous designs too.

Keep up the good work.

Rod.

Just wondering, do you keep a copy of all completed previous versions? I've liked a lot of them and it'd be a shame to not see some of them released, I think.

These do however look rather nice.

Flew in here 17 years ago, flew out 13. Back then early 20s, dreamin'. Now, late 30s, reminiscin'. Too bad there wasn't an Armada 3, except the Sins of a Solar Empire mod. But hell, at least there's that. *Shrugs*
