Hello,

And to introduce myself I'm Cpt.Madman or madman_captain. I'm  a big sci-fi fan and my favourite franchises are Warhammer 40k, X3, Fractured Space and Star Wars. I played a lot Starmade in the past and want to expand to Avorion for more crazy builds.

My Buildstyle is mostly a mix out of industrial and 20th century naval design, means exposed maschinery, pipes, tanks and scafholds surrounded by massive armorplates and large warship/tank styled Turrets. My ships tend to be way to large, clunky and ineffective and I know that but in the first way I want to design ships for fun and as long my builds can invade NPC territory without problems I'm fine with it.

 The Ironmight is now avaible on Steam:https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=1538831184

Ships:

Ironmight Class (15 slots)
https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=1538760923

Powerful Warship with focus on broadsides to bear six heavy turrets and a respectable secondary array. With 55k cargospace also good for freight runs.

Dawnbreak Class (15 slots)

Heavy armored and armed this Warship is a force on their own. Capable of bring their entire heavy arsenal for frontal assult
or charge into a enemy fleet and unleash havoc in enemy lines. Good acceleration and break caracteristics and strong Point defence.

Leviathan-Class Allrounder (15slots)
https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=1499257498

Heavy Allrounder with Hanger and improved framework for save manouvering through Asteroid fields.
 

Donnerschlag-Class armed Freighter

Heavy armored Freighter, exteme tanky but flyes like an Asteroid with firecracker engines.

Titania-"Class"

Well... it... grows through my first survival playthrough.

Hi,

I made three sets of turrets (plus PD):

Heavy Turrets (10sized)
Spoiler: show

Design Philosophy:
Without doubt the mainguns of large ships.
Thouse turrets are central parts of the ship, their emplacements are major parts of the superstructure.
They so large that they define the shape of even the largest ships.
Offensive assult and artillery dutys.

Medium Turrets (3.5sized)
Spoiler: show

Design Philosophy:
Mainturrets on medium and small ships or secondarys on large ships.
Designed as stand alone weaponsystems.
Less affecting the shape of the ship, can be mounted nearly everywhere on large and medium ships.
Looks best when placed on broadsides of large ships as large secondary araments.
Midrange offensive or defensive dutys.

Small Turrets (1.5sized)
Spoiler: show

Design Philosophy:
Best used in numbers as part of larger weaponsystems on broadsides.
Easily to place on all kinds of ships. Looks best when placed in groups.

PD Turrets (0,5sized)
Spoiler: show


EDIT: The Turrets are now on steam avaible! Also the Ironmight can also be downloaded! Here is the Collection:https: //steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=1538831184

Hi Folks,

I want to presentate my little redesign project: The Metalforce Reborn


Frist some words to the original:

The original Metalforce was builded in Starmade (still not finished, hull only), designed as a large escort/Interceptor ship.
The shape was roughly based on the Tiger Class frigate from X3, my personal tribute to this ship.
It controlls the battlefield with incredible firepower, exelent manuverbillity for a ship of her size, her job was to to prevent convoys or battlegroups to be flanked, also an exellent blockaderunner and assault ship. She crushes through enemy lines with the force of an small fleet.
The turretlayout encourages frontal assaults turther improved by four Torpedotubes.
The design features typical schematas of F.o.I. like heavy armorplates, the red glowing Intakes, relative large Turrets, the blue glowing exposed Generatorparts, exposed pipes, tanks and scafholds. And design clues that are not so commen in the F.o.I. lineup like the cuved broadsides and the winged aftfin.
Spoiler: show



Now some words about the redesign:

While the original was nearly a titan in size and mass (even without systems), the new one will be match somewhere betwin a frigate and a cruiser but thats not final. I definly will not rebuild the ship exatly witch has multiple reasons:
1. Starmade and Avorion have very different building systems, while Avorion offers me exellent curving through the abillity of scaling the blocks, Starmade offers me way better(easier) detailing especialy in terms of turret design (some of my Starmade turrets have more blocks than all my Avorion ships together).
2. I hate replica building or did I look like a 3D printer? For me there is a difference betwin getting inspired by someonce else work to make something own and just copy someone others work.
Spoiler: show





Hope you like the preview, i try to finish this one in the next weeks.

Is this the point where I should mention that I have an opssesion for scafholding?


Not much progress from my side this weeks... Warframe: Fortuna was released and X4 Foundations drops end of the months.
