I have been toying with the idea of a totally new race for quite a while and Tycoon/Ash inspired me to start playing around with designs (for canon races) and I came out with this, which I like.
I've named the race Metathran (browny points for recognition) they are religious zealots led by their Church.
I've called the ship Black Dawn class, I reckon it'd be equivelent to a galaxy class.
the ships use weaker phasers for close engagements but prefer to use their highly powerful pulse cannons at a great distance.
Nice Achilles... really nice.. galaxy quest type textures :).. Sexy!
I didn't make it!
Hmmm... Not sure about the colors. I like the shape, tho. Very different. Looks almost like it was grown rather than built. Overall I like it.
Very neat. I like it a lot. The design is very cool, I would have liked to have seen the gun a little closer to the ship though. It looks a little to flemsy with it stuck out there like that.
the race description sounds like they are the Ori of the Star Trek Universe LOL Model and textures look good and good idea for the races unique design.
Yay Metatron! The ship looks very nice... I'm looking foreward to this - Well done!
Okay, scratch the "Metatron" bit... You're talking about the Magic: The Gathering race aren't you...
I like the ship, but the combat model seems a little odd.
Wouldn't it be better to have weaker long range weapons and vastly powerful short range weapons? This way you can have either long range bombardment attacks, or short range slug fights.
Thanks for the positive responses.
I see your point about the tactics (never been a strong point of mine) but I just want to see large flashy projectiles comming from the main gun and travelling long distance, perhaps I'll have to create smaller ships without the cannon to coral the enemy ships, also incapacitating weapons.
