Wow, the textures on these ships are simply great!
That ‘is’ a big bastard. Really nice.
That’s really sub-par quality.
(Irony ? Where ?)
Really lovely work. Also fantastic work regarding the sides which are referencing nicely towards the Chimera Stations. It may also work as some sort of hull plating kinda cool.
I see multiple subsystem slots on the shipyard. Is there going to be one production subsystem per bay, or one production subsystem per ship class? The former would be an interesting departure from the other HGN builders.
It could be both, fighters from one bay, corvettes from another, frigates from another and really big ships from the big bay…
The shipyard seems big enough to have two capital ship bays stacked on top of each other. Is it possible to build two of the same ship at the same time in HWRM?
Big bay is big enough for 4 destroyers or more. i made it enough big so it can build shipyards.
I dont know if that is possible(building 2 same thing at same time) but it made me think about new production class/module for super capitals.
which would mean i need to add capital production module to model
Concurrent building is dead easy, so long as the things you want to concurrently build are different ship types and you don’t want to modify the number of things buildable concurrently via research or subsystem or anything of the like.
I think it was about building two or more ships of the same class/type concurrently, not what HW1 races can already do.
That is one bigass station!
But what station builds that station…
It is stations all the way down
I once had an idea that you could have a ship that comes out of the production unit in several sections and assembles itself outside, a bit like the HW1 research station…
Was this an inspiration for you?
Never seen that art piece before.
Inspiration mostly came from ingame models like shipyard and tanis station.
Of course there was various concept arts where i took some inspiration.
This one being of them.
And then i added some own ideas into mix.
Been strugling with texture compression. I am starting to think that hw dont like 4k textures. Even with 8888 compression it is still blurry. 2k texture is looking fine tho.
Couple ingame pics.
