Aelali's creative blog
« on: April 18, 2012, 04:28:44 pm »

Spoiler
This thread was inspired by SnowDragon's builder's blog. He's awesome  ;D

My imagination is sick. So sick, that sometimes i can't sleep 'cause ideas crawling in my head. So i decided to build a huge ship with some challenges in process, such as upgrading ship with every BR update, little free time and game crushing literaly every 15 minutes.

Soooooo...

Wanderer class deep space exploratory vessel.

I've decided to start from captain's brige. After some fighting with game crushes skeletal structure was done.



Then i tried to start main hull skeletal structrure, but game keept crushing and crushing, so after an hour of that mess i rage quited =( Will try again tommorow.

Keep at it. If that's the bridge, then I really want to know what you'll do with the main hull :) BR is a little wonky for now but they'll fix it, so just keep going!

I hope we get to keep our designs. I have a ship I've been modifying and tweaking since I started playing BR in January. I't's been completely overhauled twice.

Me too. I'm already in love with my ship  ;D

And there comes some screenshots of builging progress.

First of all, I finished nose part.





Then I've started center hull. It was freaking hard, 'cause BR started to crush again. Plus I had only basic idea, so I was remaking and remaking, until i've got a perfect, in my opinion, result.




Next update tommorow.

You do realize you are building west? I don't know if this wil affect anything in the future though, but I prefer to build north.

My biggest ship is also built west. I hope they let you change it eventually. I'd hate to have to fly sideways  :-\

would be quite a sight though, a fleet of battleships flying on their side.

It happens to me pretty often with bigger ships as well. Just keep monitoring the entities folder to see if it saves or not and try renaming your ship, sometimes it helps.

Self double post.

Today i started engineering section. I had comlpletely no ideas for that part, so desided to go with the flow and see what happens.

First of all, i added more sections to the middle part:




Than i started to shape the engineering section itself:



And added nice little "wings":






Thats all for now, but there will be more.

Small update on Wanderer.





I'm having HUGE perfomance issues while working on this baby  :'( so i made this thing:







This is Rifter class heavy fighter, designed for quick hit and run attacks. It's six quad blaster turrets can outgun pretty everything of its own size and huge main trusters hepling Rifter outrun everything it can not outgun.
