Well everyone, I have a few screenshots of some starbases that i have been playing around with, one of which is modular, but then again it has to be cause of its poly count. Anyway, I just want it known that the original design for the basic version came from www.ussmiranda.com, as it had this design on it and I really liked it. The large modual version will have a shipyard attatched to it, and before anyone goes and says it, I do believe that I have a way around the whole 'Pods cant build' error, but Im going to test it before I release it. Anyway, onto the pics.
two basic versions: Right: Original version seen on ussmiranda.com Left: Modified version so frieghters can dock Ships: Seelholf Class x1, Viselli Class x1, Renegade Class x1, Serpent Class x1
Modular Version: Station itself is about 20000 polies, so if I do release it, you better have a good comp Ships: St. Valentine Class x1, Deathscythe Fighter x3, Omen Class x1, Typhoon Class x1, Diamond Star Class x1
That Oberth variant ship looks cool
The cake is a lie.There is no cake.

20,000 polies! Aye carumba! Does look pretty funky though, I'll give you that, To be honest, what catches my eye more is the two Defiant variants, this "Diamond Star" which look's quite funky and that Oberth variant. The stations do look good though, don't get me wrong on that account.
The stations look good in design but with textures that look stock they are spoiled. Also I will inform you that only completly mad people put 20,00 poly models in A2, no offence of course.
O my god, they are great, (i Know I really need to calm down a little but ...) when are these going to be available for download ??? NB it is a shame about the poly count but otherwise, fantastic
ok for the Record the Oberth Varient is called the St. Valentine Class, the Defiant Varient in the first pic is the Serpent Class, which is already available for download, and the other in the second pic is called the Omen class, which is for SFC3, but Im porting it, but still havent recieved a response from the original autor. The reason why the station uses the stock texture is because the orignial version seen on ussmiranda.com uses the stock textures, so I wanted it to look the same. If the larger 'modular' version does go into game, I do need to bring the polies down considerably, and it would be used as the main base for your use, but better hope it doesnt get destroyed.
They look nice, however I think a new texture for the station would be better :p - However, regardless of the textures, they look nice, though I'm not too keen on the top - right one.
ok so I have done a basic export of the Modular version, its not modular anymore, I have given it a shipyard though to build ships, and have put it in as the starting base so that there wouldnt be to many polies on the screen, and I must say that it looks very good, big too like it should be. anyway I have a screenshot of it, so you call all see what it looks like ingame, and when I get the hardpoints on it then I will be sure to release it.
hey that intrepid class with the nebula pod is my ship!!!!! I created it!! its the eliminator class!!!!!!

Yes sovereign001, the Viselli that you are refering to was based off of your ship, the one that i did a prelim model for, but the reason why I didnt use that version, and went with this one, is because I dont have the time to do the textures on my own, so the original works. If you would let me, I like the design and this is why I used that design as a basis for that ship, can I use it, if not it will not be released.
