Title: Spacecraft Building Competition! (Poll)
Post by: EliteASH_11 on October 24, 2011, 03:59:09 am
Alright so my last competition didn't go well...Probably because making small craft is currently really hard to do.
NEW COMPETITION!
I'm asking anyone here to build a ship, any shape, any size and no requirements at all!

Rules are!
 - Must be started from scratch, not allowed to use anything pre-built.
Yeah not many rules.

So I'm thinking 30 days to build! A poll will be put up at the end of the time limit where everyone can vote for there favourite design.

There isn't much to gain from doing this apart from bragging rights I guess. Maybe the devs can add the winning ship to the game *hint*

Hmm, I think I will get in on this too. (But not as a ship people can vote on due to obvious reasons. I just making spaceships. :) )

Can it be... a space station? Or does it have to be a ship?

I'm in. I really hope no one cares if its based on an existing design. I really love the design of a certain sci-fi ship and would like to reproduce it here.

Does the competition start now?  I'm assuming so, because I've already started  ;)

Here's a question is there a limit to how many ships you can submit or is it just 1 per person?

Just to answer a few questions.

Here's a question is there a limit to how many ships you can submit or is it just 1 per person?
Yes submit as many as you would like.

Can it be... a space station? Or does it have to be a ship?
You can build a space station if you like!

Yes its already started :P

Yeah this is okay.

I'll enter my new FireLance class into it while I wait for SH.

Looks like I'm the first one to submit something so here it goes, let me know what you think

Ships name - Agrona

Classification - Heavy Frigate

Description - The Agrona is designed primarily for fleet escort duty and to be the first line of defense for protecting larger capital ships. It has a small forward hanger capable of holding 2 small fighters/shuttles. The interior has lots of open space to allow for modifications extra weapons and ammo storage. It also has (until we get real reactors) two battery reactors acting as its primary power source.

Current weapons layout - 2 x side mounted  11 x 5 plasma cannons
                                         2x upper bridge guns of 8 plasma cannons each
                                         2x lower bow guns (under hanger) of 5 x 18
                                         1x static turret (top) with 2 barrels 9x2 each

That argona is particully nice, although it seems as though you lost creativity at the engine
Title: Re: Spacecraft Building Competition!
Post by: The Wolf on October 31, 2011, 01:02:09 am
Thanks Vorgra, yeah the engine wasn't coming together for me for some reason. When we finally get reactors and some other engine related components I'm planning on gutting and redoing the whole engine/life support area
Title: Re: Spacecraft Building Competition!
Post by: MrVorgra on October 31, 2011, 02:47:34 am
The angles and Suspended Plating you did at the front would look ideal at the rear, with the exception it would have to like 'Finish' the ship of such.

I'm putting together a small(ish) defence station. Got the main hull laid out just got plating, turrets and the interior to do.
Title: Re: Spacecraft Building Competition!
Post by: The Wolf on October 31, 2011, 09:06:07 pm
@ Vorgra I don't know anything about Warhammer but the last pic reminds me a little of a German U-Boat. Very cool ship though.
Title: Re: Spacecraft Building Competition!
Post by: MrVorgra on November 02, 2011, 05:37:20 am
Are we Able to put just ships outta shell in for the competition, cause I would like to fill the ship as the devs start to release the systems and how they will work.

The Sentry-I defence platform

(http://img13.imageshack.us/img13/4742/sentryidefenceplatformf.png)

Mounting Two Heavy gun turrets and sixteen anti fighter emplacements this defence platform neatly complements any system or station's defences. With a crew of seven (four gunners, two technicians and a officer) this post can easily store enough supplies for months and on top of that it has docking bays for four PT ships and can accommodate their crews too with two large bunk rooms.

Sixteen thrusters provide it with a small amount of thrust to manoeuvre in an emergency.

Room list:
2 bunk rooms
2 storage rooms
2 meeting/dining halls
2 battery bays
2 turrets
1 ladder room
1 control room
1 hydroponics lab
4 docking arms

Weapon list:
16 duel 1x1x2 AF turrets
2 Quad 2x2x12 heavy plasma cannons.

Very cool, I could totally see several of these as part of a outer defensive ring around a shipyard or space station.
Title: Re: Spacecraft Building Competition!
Post by: Mr. Vorgra on November 02, 2011, 07:56:30 pm
Yeah I could See Three or so defending 'X' Point and like ten or so automated AA guns floating around aswell

IRON HELM PIRATE SHIP

34m wide
270m long
45m high
150,187.5 Mass

Its Just a Shell ATM

It trades turrets for fixed broadside guns, this allows a larger number of guns, while conserving space and weight. It also Has Room for Large Rocket/Missiles to be launched from it front. It can also fit several fighters if modified correctly.

I removed my previous post and brought this to the front.

the hind part is absolutely awesome, the front.. meeh I don't know doesn't feel like it matches. The hind is almost cathedral like, or maybe like an old victorian ship, where as the front looks more like a viking ship

FINALLY!

FireLance Class Minelaying Cruiser (Class Designation RDS-105)

(http://img853.imageshack.us/img853/2000/firestart.png) (http://imageshack.us/photo/my-images/853/firestart.png/)

Uploaded with ImageShack.us (http://imageshack.us)

The IUN commisioned RDS shipyards to design and build them a minelaying cruiser capable of lone operations and being able to defend itself against attack. The result was the FireLance, but the ship proved to be so effective at it's secondary combat role that it quickly became the 'go-to' option for a whole range of assignments, from border patrol, escort, light carrier duty, survey and small battlegroup flagship operations. Her outer hull weighs in at 11.7 thousand tonnes.

This particular vessel was the ship chosen for the shakedown cruise, named after the heroes of the RDS' famed Selfless Heart incidient in which the first Anlita-Salta Class Flagship was nearly destroyed. She's armed with a massive score of 100cm missile banks, 20 Laser CIWS emplacements, 50cm autocannons with a cyclic fire rate of 200 rounds per minute, twin barreled 200cm main turrets, Four arrays of COILs, and her primary armament, the 300cm 'Ship Buster', a retro-fitted particle collider designed to accerate massive steel encased nuclear penetrating ordnance to 0.000004c.

This version is shown without her Survival Upgrade Kit (SUK), which includes 2 metre thick raised armour plates and 5 additional CIWS mounts.

(This is merely the shell until internals.)
