Freighters
Yes, it's a Freighter, called Antithesis



A little about the ship:
  • She has a low powered shield;
  • She is build for speed and maneuverability;
  • She has a massive Cargo Hold (unmodified);
  • Once complete, I am believe it will have 12 Module Slots;
  • Oh, and is not great for fighting in - crap visibility in the heat of battle.

Before we get into the pics, let me just say the goal here (originally) was to build a dedicated Freighter, that actually looked like a Freighter.  This ship has more than 80,000 cargo hold (unmodified).  So, it is most assuredly, a space hauler !!

Which brings me to the name ... this Tie Interceptor (when complete) will NOT look like a Space Hauler.
So I decided upon Antithesis lol  :o

Anyway, yes, it's incomplete.
I need your help ...
Please !!  If anyone would like to finish the body for me us ... I will mail you the XML.   ;D


Posing for you now is Antithesis
In all its unfinished glory, lol

Lessons Learned


These are some of my lessons learned:
         1.  Avoid using ANY blocks with 0.05 scales, as these are NOT naturally divisible by the Avorion Game Software.
         2.  Build from the inside out.
         3.  Anything is possible.  ... Hmm ... just stop ... think about it.
         4.  Borrowing from other designers is a good thing - but give credit.  It's a community (not a competition).
         5.  Use of a spreadsheet  in ship design and as an aid during in-game construction - then build it
         6.  Jester pointed out that Cargo Hold blocks are optimally placed as one big blob, rather than chucks placed here and there.
         7.  Failure is "failure" if you learning nothing.

Future Works

Among the most challenging to build in Avorion is off-angles, and contiguous contouring.
So far, I had only completed the Tie Wings.

[image posting soon of my tie interceptor wings]

The body of a standard Tie design has been elusive, as I did not want to start working on something that needed to be round, only to wind up looking square-ish or clunky.

Here is a design that I may approach in the future. (It will may serve as my Elite Titan, with +200kk m3 Processing Power, with 15 Upgrade slots).
This version is less fraught with the inherent design challenges of a round body.

The flying buttress looks interesting, hoping to see you use it soon.
Are these examples of trimaran?  Is this the sort of thing you are going for?
Technically, not all multi-hulls are "trimarans".

Sorry, I cannot remember who produced these.  I found both in the Avorion workshop.

Wow, that first one from Jester is awesome !
Maybe "Trimaran" is just the name of the faction :)

Hi Kamo
Yes, indeed.  That one is nice, and is also a great example of a multi-hull ship.
Certainly, Jester and everyone is welcome to post other ship pics that are cool designs.

Cheers

Woah :o ! Such wonderful detailing while keeping a simple appearance :) ! Is it a texture mod to make the hull so... matte ?
(And those are really fierce ships, they are full of hardpoints~)

Edit: B-Bigger and more detailed :o ?!

Never finished Railgunsniper ship, get lost through Nullpoint exeption.
Designs complicated enough the game crashes !

Quote from: Cpt. Madman
Godspear Cannon
Its a Turret in size of a small Titan
Ah - I made a Heavy Destroyer, the Konno, which has an hardpoint for four size-10 coax turrets in a square, giving the illusion of a size-20 coax turret (though here it's more like a huge rocket launcher ::).
Though the big flat Turret Bases are challenging to hide, weapons of titanic size are possible through linking (though finding non-rail coax weapons is almost impossible, finding enough weapon slots (legendary TCS =9 slots, 10-slot coax = 20 slots) to install those is problematic, and the AI is unable (for the moment) to fire a coax weapon properly :-\).
Also, coax turrets, except the first block in contact with the Turret Base, can be embiggened to 1.5 times the size (so a size-10 coax can look like a size-15 (15x15x120 if I remember it well), which helps for linking the turret parts) :D.

This are ships I designed in Starmade. I currently try to rebuild one of my other ships from there in Avorion.
Was just a exsample for tri hulled ships.

btw this are just small ships, the real beautys are the big once.

Thank you for your post, Cpt Madman.  Me likes !!  ;)

By the way, for anyone who has not yet had a chance to check out Cpt Madman's ships, the link to his thread is here

... his posted work includes ships that feature refined detail.   :o
I hope to see more !!
