The ship designer is out now in the the alpha 2.0 patch, so when have a that ship designed feel free to post it here and so others can see what kind of cool things you can build with it.
You need to put the image on another site something like imageshack or dropbox, copy the URL and use the insert image button. There put your URL to your picture in the spot where it says image URL.
I must assume that an overwrite function will be added later? Sane name hulls don't currently overwrite (nor ask if we want to).
We have to be careful with overwriting ships, in case they still exist out on the map, but we will try and accommodate. By the way Awesome ship, would love to see some of these get posted over on Steam.
Ah, I hadn't considered that. I said the overwrite thing because I tend to work at different moments in the big ships so I need to save to continue later. I think that in the dev stream it was mentioned something about exporting pieces to be reused, so that could work as WIP workaround for me.
Oh, also curious that my video settings (lowered due to crappy card) are ignored in the planet's shipyard list. Not that I complain for the eye candy (no slowdowns anyway).
You will be able to save as a Template, if you are just working on Cosmetics, we should be able to let you overwrite those without messing with existing ships, (I will have sure.)The Ship view, on the Planets is going away, as Starports will soon be their own on map object, and have their own screen. That screen will support all the Post Possessor goodness.
Okay here it is... Resistance is Futile
Above the ship is in action below is the design view. Got it completed using the mirror image options
Those are some sexy cubes you have there.
Congrats on the cube, it looks awesome. Borg Sphere next?
Maybe later One thing that's needed is a hard 0,0,0 coordinate, using one hard point on the generic ship to link everything to isn't always accurate . We'll see if they add it
I really, really, really want to be able to import all these ship designs.
okay I'm not thrilled with it but this is what I quickly put together.. Note the sphere is a colony ship
And next to the cubes
It's that small dot between the cubes
Here is another between 3 cubes and closer zoom, the size is close that it could fit in through the middle opening on the cube. See picture below.
Here's my first medium-hull ship.
Here is a group of new ships I created this morning I created one each colony, constructor, and scout ship. Plus I posted them all together as well.
Edit: Added a transport ship and a defender
I just realized that this is the Ragnarov from SOSE! AWESOME!
Here's my first attempt in GC3 of a star destroyer.
It's dangerous out there. Take this:
I must say that I like the Terran blocks best.
I thoroughly agree, Terran blocks are the best! Now we just need to be able to see them in action! If only we had the combat viewer or at least in-map battles!
Now I have a frigate.
Ho ho ho!
(Edit: Changed it a little, and took shots from more angles.)
My first scout. I called it the Atlas.
My fighter craft, the Phantom. Basically reused the scout and expanded upon that.
My heavy fighter/Corvette. Went with a bit of a different design, which I called the Arrow.
Unfortunately I got use to relying on autosave and I did all this in one turn before I quite out. Since I didn't end the turn all I have left of these three are a couple of screenshots.
Edit: removed broken image links
If you start a new game your ships should be there. The ships save separately and are loaded into your game at the begining of the game. So you may not see them in your current game that failed to save but, should be there in a new game.
There are many great features available to you once you register, including:
