Requests, anyone?

on Thu Aug 07, 2014 4:17 pm
As many of you are surely aware, I have a lot of ships- way more than anyone else (except perhaps Talmid Razz). I believe it's just shy of 750 different files- and that poses a problem:

I can't think of anything. It's all been done or I don't really feel like doing it. Razz

That's where you all come in. The idea here is that you post ideas for ship designs and I build them. It can be pretty much anything, from "build a carrier" to highly-specific designs for some epic frigate or some such. Mainly, I just want to get a feeling for what you guys would like to see (although, as mentioned, specific requests are fine too). if there's any type of ship you feel has been swept under the rug, now's your chance to potentially have one made. I also imagine this could become a general ship-design-ideas thread, but we'll have to see about that. Razz

If you have any questions, feel free to ask; otherwise, post away!

(BTW, if anyone wants to try their hand at refitting one of my ships themselves, I have a link to a .zip containing all my PCG-related stuff; just tell me which one you'll be doing before you start).

Hmmm we need more support ships. More medical ships, escorts, frigates, cargo vessels, troop transports, carriers, corvettes, supply ships, mining vessels, communications ships, and mobile headquarter-vessel-things. To get really unique, you could build some science and exploration vessels, including trans-universal and trans-temporal explorers. (Stealth observation only of course.)

I was originally planning to do a bunch of those but forgot about it. Razz I'll get to it.

Hmm, perhaps the PCG needs a more "missile-ized" warship. Just like the PXE! Very Happy Then I won't be alone anymore! Razz

@PXR: Uhhh....PCG Rockfish? About 80-90% of that whole ship is devoted to missiles. Razz

It's basically a bunch of missile tubes wrapped in a coating of armor with two engines. Razz

@Mightyman: Look at real life ships, ships devoted to intelligence, ships devoted to scouting, small Millenium Falcon type frieghtor things, cargo ships, fuel ships, mine sweeper, mining ships, ships that lay mines, ships that tow other ships, repair ships, other types of repair ships for larger peices instead of small ones, ships that arn't just inteliigence/scouting/scanning all in one but one that scans, one that plans, and one that just launces missiles, one that focuses on fighters, one that has a ton or forward facing torpedoes to dump all at once into a enemy fleet/ship and then retreat behind other ships that can slug it out for a bit, shield ships, homeworld/system defense ships, troop transports, civillian transports, dignitary transport ships, medical ships, rapid assitance medical ships that treat a patience while rushing them to the nearest hospital on a station/planet, mass casualty medical ships that are the floating hospital and treat a whole army at a time (not quite, but you get the idea), ramming ships, ships designed for boarding, ships designed for anti-fighter protection to surround other ships, ships designed to tow hazardous waste, ships designed to mine solar flares, ships to keep space lanes clear, search and rescue ships (lots of variations that could go there), basically any ship or aircraft purpose ever made could be made into a spaceship of some kind. Razz  Orbital bombardment specialty ships, ships meant more for long distance travel, ships meant for comfortable travel, ships meant to haul entire asteroids, ships meant to supply farming stuff/haul produce, ships for signaling, ships for recreation, ships for painting toenails, ships for ....not painting toenails. Razz  News ships, general civillain craft, ammo resupply ships, other types of support ships that help in battle, Ships that snipe, ships that get up in your face, ships that float, ships that go underwater, ships that hydroplane..wait, wrong kind of ships. Razz  Ships that are made out of tin foil, ships that spy on other ships, ships for sabatoge, ships for battle that are less OP, ships for battle that are less less OP, ships for mining nebula, stations for generating power from stars for planets, repair stations for all kinds and shapes and sizes for differnt sizes, types, shapes, and amounts of ships, and when you run out of all those then let me know and I'll give you another couple thousand. Razz

And/Or take your first 750 and refit them from Mightyman skill level to S-H skill level, and upload the various refits as you keep refitting them all until you achieve SH level.

Oh, and did I mention ships that search for and seal up/fix spacial anomalies? Razz

So... everything, basically. That's helpful (*sarcasm*). Razz

OK, can I al least get a priority list on that?


(On a side note- as I was posting this, I remembered several things I wanted to do. Always works out that way, eh? Razz Regaurdless, keep'em coming!)

Migtyman: You know, there's something that I've been wanting to do, but I don't know how to start. So, here's my proposition: build a cruise spaceship. I'm talking restaurants, attractions, pools, the works, but as a spaceship with engines, a hull, etc. You could really let your imagination go wild with this. I'd do it, but my computer isn't powerful enough for what I would try to do. Razz What do you say?

Or instead of doing PCG-esq ships, you could instead do some stuff for other factions such as Romulan, Klingon, Borg, Spectre, Space Agency, etc.

@AA: Jsyk, most ships can fit into many of those categories. Razz

Spud- I actually did a little something like that a few times; I read somewhere that Steamrunners were sometimes used as civilian ships, so I made some pleasure-cruiser style ships to that effect. I look back at'em (and probably give'em a total makeover Razz).
J-red- Yep, already have a ton of those too. Razz I'm putting my PCG ships as priority, but I could work on some Klingon/Romulan style vessels if you'd like to see some.

Okay, priorities, some of the ones I really liked as I brainstormed where the medical ships, being the quick ferry a few people to a better hospital while giving them care, kinda like an ambulance or like the medical aircraft used to transport freshly evacuated casualties from a war-zone to some high-speed hospital in the U.S or Germany or something.

Along with that a ship meant more to care for a ton of patients long term rather than go and get said patients, although it would be able to if necessary, but more of a mobile hospital than an ambulance.

And some of those mining ships, and repair ships. Specialize them for different things, like asteroid mining, carrying mining equipment to a planet and with mining stuff on the ship itself, and mining nebula (I was thinking some uber huge ramscoops and a very large bay/tank that stored the gas). And for repair ships, smaller ships that would move alongside and deploy workers/drones to ship for smaller repairs, ships with long crane arms/tractor beams for doing larger repairs, etcetera, ships able to control fires/radiation leaks/etcetera better, or atleast equipped with equipment specifically for that.

OH! And search and rescue ships for whenever a ship gets lost (cuase it dun got blowed up or lost power or whatever), sorta like coast guard Dolphin Helicopters or whatever. I really like that one.

Miners, hospital ships, repair ships, search-and-rescue. Got it!
