Just Some Random Ships

Postby Artasid » Thu Jul 12, 2018 2:14 am

I got bored and made some random Light Carriers. I didn't know where else to put them and I have a feeling I might be making some more random vessels for IO so hence this thread. Feel free to add your own creations if you wish.

ImageRandom Light Carriers
BLUE: 1Kd6 Frame Catapult, d6Rh d6Rh Point Defense Turret, d6G Freight Engines
WHITE: 1Kd6 Frame Catapult, d6Rh d6Rh Point Defense Turret, d6G Freight Engines

Hope you all enjoyed and I eagerly await any and all comments you wish to share.
And if you wish to add your own random ship builds here, please feel free to do so.

Those look very good! Simple, clean and to the point!

Kinda like a more angular counterpart to Hyve's Nimbuses, might build something along these lines!

Based off HyveMynd's ORT Noctilucent HVA, and inspired by VitorFarias Delegator Cruiser, I decided to try my hand at this ship design, which I call Checkers (For obvious reasons)

ImageHeavy Cruiser 'Checkers'
Checkers Heavy Cruiser: d6Rd d6Rd d8Rd Dual Assault Range Torpedo Tubes, d6Y Comms Antenna, d6Y Range Finder Array

This design was a bit of a challenge as I tried to get the dimensions right, plus I had limited parts in the right color, but I am well pleased how it turned out.
I'd like to thank HyveMynd for sharing the design, and I'd like to thank VitorFaria for the inspiration to try this build. I know it seems like I'm copying someone elses work, but I try to add my own little details to make it slightly different. I hope this is not a problem, and if it is, then I wish to know and I will correct it.

Hope you enjoyed and as always, I eagerly await any and all comments you wish to share.

That looks excellent, Artasid!

Love the color scheme and your engines assembly, might make it full circle and incorporate some ideas from it!

Thank you VitorFaria, I'm glad you like the color and engine details, and I would love to see any ideas you get from it. I can provide a breakdown shot or LDD of the engines if you need.


The Deimos Class Corvette was named after the Greek God of dread and terror. During it's first voyage, the ship came under attack from pirates that were determined to board and capture the vessel, however, with it's multiple Point Defense Turrets and heavily layered Armor Plates, the pirates and their boarding frames faced a difficult opposition and instead fled in disgrace. The dread of having to encounter this corvette again in close combat has given it its name. Though heavily defended, it severely lacks any offensive capabilities and must rely on nearby escorts to provide any counterattack. Though it is a capital ship, it has often been used as the defensive point of most fleets or as an armored transport for important individuals.

Deimos: d6Rh d6Rh d8Rh Multiple Point Defense Turrets, d6B d6B Multi-Layered Hardened Armor Plates

This design was based off a vessel from an old space simulator game called FreeSpace2. I hope you enjoyed and I eagerly await any and all comments you wish to share.

Really solid looking, Artasid! Gotta love all of that coherent armor!
