I know this thread is for mods we're impatient about, but I'm impatient about something else.

Still nice to see here ^^; Don't think the others won't mind... someone remind me to start watching when you start uploading that series ^^

I made this sprite, then realized that my reference caused me to use about...

300 lines too many? And I accidently made it upside down, to top it all off.

Image

Now in the process of completely redrawing it so it doesn't have those lines.

So, maybe, in, ah, 20 years?; this thing will be ready to download.

Anyone who can tell me what it is wins nothing.

Federation Fleet Cruiser 2 attempt... how does it look so far?

Edit: shading not final as well as other features

Much more unique than my hackjob of the Fed A. Looks good so far, but still, I dunno. Feels like it's missing something to push it over the top and make it unique. Feels a little... flat? In some areas (probably because the shading is not done) but I feel like the conning tower/bridge needs to be slightly wider. Perhaps the nose needs to be sharper.

Image

Need a bit of help with this one. Didn't quite come out how I'd like - just looking for a way to make it look more like it should be in FTL. Didn't finish the shading/lighting yet. It's pretty much all smooth surfaces.

Here's another variant, drowned in gradient and dodge/burn.

Both of those are still better than my hackjob attempt at shading. The last ship I tried custom shading on was so complex, I didn't know how it looked in 3D, so I couldn't do self-cast shadows and stuff--in the end I just gave up, slapped a gradient layer on, and called it a day, lol

Did a little bit of work with shadows, and now I'm just going to call it done. At least it's better than the Normandy.

I do have four oddball weapons that it'll use, and I'm still handing out Reddit Silver for the first person to name what ship I made.

One thing that always bugged me: Your Wanderlust cruiser is asymmetrical.

Image

I really like how this one came out. This one should be a bit more obvious than the last, and it's still from the same thing...

looks like we've transitioned from weapons back to ships, eh? And not just ships, but fantastic looking ships in high quantities as well. Maybe I should start doing some work on the Scrin ship...

Heh, I should make a Type B of my Scrin Carrier. Make it automated and put CABAL's face on it...

Or turn this:

Into a Faceship :lol:
Or have someone do it for me because I can't make ships from scratch.
