G'day folks, in relation to my long awaited Zero Hour MOD, I've been on a continuing mission of my own. That mission has been to seek out new possible races for my project and to baldy include what no man has included before ;) And back to reality... I've decided that I want the Xindi in my project as either the 7th or 8th side, most probably the 7th as the 8th is still on a long winding tour of all races that exist (at current, it's a toss between the Tholians and the Breen). Anyway, the Xindi. As many people know, I've always had ideas to get a 24th century version of them going, and that is what I plan to do, however I need help. It is no secret that my "modelling" capabilities are at the basics, I can remap textures, and edit models, but building one from scratch is something I haven't managed to get myself working with as of yet. Thus, I need a team. This team wont be related to anything other than focusing on the Xindi. Should anyone wish to continue helping once the Xindi are out of the way, then they would be welcome to do so. Each of the five sub-species of the Xindi are going to be included, with the Insectiods having the Destroyers, the Reptilians the Cruisers, Primates the Explorers, Arboreals having the Science Ships & Aquatics commanding the Battleships. Each sub-species is to have two ships of each (somewhat the same in design), though with a 24th century feel to them. - This giving the Xindi a total of 10 military ships. In addition, I'll need a Construction Ship, Cargo freighter & Colony Ship (these being the property of the Primate and Arboreal). As for structures, I'll need three shipyards (one for the Aquatics, one for Military (Reptilian & Insectiod), and one for Science & Research (Primate & Arboreal)). Turrets (Insectiod / Reptilian feel), research stations (I'll be needing three of these) - much in the same relation as the shipyards, a mining station, trading station and orbital facility (Primate & Arboreal) orientated. Along with that, I'll be needing an outpost & a starbase. The outpost being small (something the size of Ty'Go'Kor) and a starbase (something the size of Terok Nor / DS9). ANYONE who feels they can help my cause, PLEASE step foward and help. This has always been a long-term idea of mind, and one of which I would like fulfilled.

Hi werdborg here, although I can't help you with your mod as I am starting my first hopefully I can suggest that in addition to the 5 Xindi sub-species you could also add the extinct Xindi Avians. Even though the series said they were extinct because they were too primitive you could decide to become Q for a few seconds and bring them back(Maybe as a replacement for the Ferengi freighter and Marauder)

That's not a stupid idea having them in, but with no idea of ship specs, it'd be pretty difficult to manufacture.

Though having them, I think would be for map use only (as a map species). People can then add them to the Xindi Race if they choose too (I'll leave a space for their shipyard) ;) The only problem with them is we have no idea what their ships would look like... [quote=Joelteon7]That's not a stupid idea having them in, but with no idea of ship specs, it'd be pretty difficult to manufacture.

I beg to differ. The ship "ideas" - For the models, I've already got (though only one drawn out in a sketch). The others just floating around in my head. As for their combat relationships: Insectiod Ships would match those of the Sabre & BoP Reptilian Ships would match those of the Intrepid & Excelsior Arboreal Ships would match up with say... The Nebula? - Just nowhere neer as tough Primate Ships would match the Galaxy? (again, nowhere neer as tough) Aquatic Ships would match that of the Hutet & Dominion Dreadnought

For the avians ships as they're supposed to be more primitive their ship strengh wherever you decide to put them they should really be vastly inferior to the others.SSA you've put the insectoids/reptillians below the primates/arboreals in strengh even though ENT said it was vice versa, is this going to be part of the story behind the mod that the p/a's overtook the i/r's while the Aquatics retained dominance as the i/r's were more warlike in ENT and had more powerful ships than the p/a's Edit: For avian ship designs as the other 5 subspecies design their ships to identify themselves, romulan "WARBIRD" designs would be a great place to start if you were going to add the avians because their designs would probably look like a bird in space hence why I thought Romulan ships

Maybe I should talk about this a little more... I didn't mean in terms of strength. The Galaxy is the Federation Exploration Vessel, the Nebula their Science Vessel. I was just paring them with ships from other races. From a different perspective, think of the Arboreal Ships around the Nova Class strength. Either that, or I have the Insectiods as Frigates, the Reptilians as Battleships, and work around the other two? Also, in regards to the Romulan ships, I did think to start there being their ships try to resemble that of a Bird (great minds think alike) ;)

I've just realised that both the Xindi Aquatic Battleship and the stock A2 Romulan Griffen have very similar neck styles connecting the main body of the ship to the most forward section. This could be useful in designing Avian Shipping Edit: Look at this website for more idea's for other species http://www.neutralzone.de/database/indexfr.htm as it has an alien database which contains ships of individual species including the Xindi.Hopefully this is the last post of mine for a while, I think I've hogged the space on this thread too much Good Luck SSA

Yay, the Xindi. If I was any good at Modelling, which I am not I would assist you Ash.

Out of the Tholians and the Breen I personally would choose the Breen.

werdborgLook at this website for more idea's for other species http://www.neutralzone.de/database/indexfr.htm as it has an alien database which contains ships of individual species including the Xindi.[/quote]Thanks, I'll have a little look through that later on today.

Whilst I appreciate your choices regarding the other race, this isn't the thread for it :) The thread which asked for the publics choice was the latest News related one: Zero Hour: July Update Thread. However, the same problem with the Breen is their ships. They don't exist, at least not to make a full race out of them. Along with that, the only Breen Stations I have seen that actually "look Breen" are those of FleetOps. - Which I have permission from Optec to use. So that gives me three...
