PostSubject: Taln Shipyards [New Naming Convention!] [New Ships!]   Wed Feb 22, 2012 7:41 pm



This wing of our military branch focuses on quality at low prices, consequently ships of their design are used widely by fringe pirates and mercenaries, as well as the occasional standing navies of some planets. Cost reducing techniques by said company have prevented their lighter variations of ships from entering mainstream military service, though higher quality ships are used extensively and for the most part exclusively by our own defense fleet. We only plan to export certain models of our ships to serve as another source of income, so do not be alarmed when seeing unusual vessels upon entering the Taln Domain.

****From now on the Crusader and Companion are hereby decommisioned from active purchase. You can still get those models from our resellers, but why would you, now that a complete overhaul of the old Kae line is scheduled to reinvent and refurbish those models? That's right, everything from scratch. We at Taln will work diligently to correct the flaws inherent in our earlier designs, this will be known as the Vespyr line of spacecraft. What do we have scheduled for this exciting new brand, you wonder?

The:

Proponent class assault frigate (Companion MKII) REVISED!

Excelsior class cruiser (Proponent Re-design) FINISHED!

Champion class light cruiser (Crusader MKII) CANCELLED.

Pathos class light frigate FINISHED!

Whisper class strike cruiser FINISHED!

Templar class destroyer CANCELLED.

Aspiration class escort carrier IN PROGRESS

Ethos class luxury liner (Companion re-build) IN PROGRESS

Contention class Star Artillery PLANNING PHASE

Ascendant class frigate PLANNING PHASE

LJS-80 class commerce ship PLANNING PHASE

Redemption class fleet carrier PLANNING PHASE

Conquerer class destroyer PLANNING PHASE


Stay tuned Wink

Only problem being how easy it would be to knock the comm array off.

At the moment, it's using a shield generator. The ship's intended to be cheap and reliable; think space's version of the Kalashnikov AK-47. But it's also designed to have inherent flaws that prevent it being used by anyone with the money to buy something better (Think Pat22's ships if you've read the MCforum thread for this mod) just like the aforementioned rifle.

But yeah, noted thanks. Where would you suggest I put the comm array on the Crusader?

No, I posted a while back on the MCforums and he suggested a ton of stuff for it; that's just my way of thanking him for the tips.

I respect anybody who has proper grammar and good ideas. To me it does't matter how many posts. For example, I respect Last_Jedi_Standing a lot, while some people who have around 50 posts I don't.

Hmph, this ship is in desperate need of a conversion pod. A conversion pod imbues a mystical owl crystal(Chemical makeup of Y3 C2 He1 Fe2) that spreads in a fashion similar to tree roots. It has natural holographic and hull strengthening properties, and is used by the GSA(Galactic Strigiforme Industry) to increase the durability on all its ships. I can supply you with a conversion pod for 50,000 K'lii

How bout it?

What, you other birds dont use the K'lii?
I will have to ask my financial advisor about his lieing..... And how he feels about death by burning talons....

Anyway, a conversio pod just adds hip black lines on your ship in angular patterns and strenghtens your ship, and also magnifies any stealth fields around it.


Conversion, 50,000 K'lii is equal to about 35,000 of your credits.

That means they have stronger economy.

Nah, its just the K'lii has been around for.... oh, about 1500 years, so the currency has just been continuously produced, and owls dont spend much..... So when Klyyt dies, he gives his 250,000 K'lii to his son, and then his son gives his 500,00 K'lii to HIS son.... And so on for 500 years, then the great great great great grandhatchling gets 700,000,000 when his father dies, and buys something expensive, so then theres a lot more money in circlation, so this happens periodically, and this is one of those times.

cyclops

I'll trade you a prototype of the Crusader class frigate [A 257,000 K'lii value] for a suitable model of this conversion pod, and a 15% commission on all ships using this feature. How 'bout it ?

Thus far, I present the Companion class Corvette, which took me two days to complete.

Welcome! If you are reading this, you’re well on your way to purchasing a Companion class corvette, courtesy of Taln Shipyards, subsidiary of Last_Jedi_Standing Industriestm. Here is a pamphlet to instill confidence in any further transactions between you, the valued customer, and us.

Our valued engineers here at Taln, experienced in space conservation, have managed to do the impossible by fitting a launch bay into even this light warship!

The Companion class corvette provides the best performance and efficiency in its class, so buy yours today for the low price of 90,000 Cr!

Currently I'm working on sprucing the Companion up a bit, than moving on to the Crusader class Frigate.

<lots of ships about the first (and only) product of Taln Shipyards
Congratulations, Tiel! Welcome to the team! We can always use more good builders here at Last_Jedi_Standing Industries! Since you are the first one, you also get many other benefits, including a seat on the Board of Directors and 49% of the company stock. Keep up the good work!
As soon as I have something presentable, I will make a Last_Jedi_Standing Industries thread on this forum, and I would love to be able to showcase some of your excellent designs. If you want to cooperate, we will thoroughly trounce any rival shipbuilding firms. We will establish a monopoly and rule the galaxy! AH HA HA HA HA!

Seriously though, I saw that in your post and was delighted. Thank you.

No problem man santa

Progress on the Gradient series of Tactical Dropships:



The Gradient line of Dropships offers the best in maneuverability and carrying capacity for it's size, though unfortunately carries no weapons.



It can carry an entire platoon of light mechanized marines intra atmosphere, and even on to enemy ships should the tactical situation call for it. In addition, the Gradient is capable of lifting an entire hover tank!


hovertank not included in initial purchase



Powerful jump jets assigned to the sides of the vehicle ensure the continued survival of pilots and passengers..

Still a WiP. Crit?

I realize this borders more on aesthetics, but I'm working on the asian cheap ships first. The Ascension class Dropship will be much larger and essentially a reinforced box capable of deploying much, much more vehicles and troops, and can latch onto the smaller capital ships during warps.

Too blocky. I don't like that. Wood on ship = bad. I like the way you make ships and sell them though.

Everything on here is placeholder; I needed a material to match the stairs. But what would you suggest to make it less blocky? Should I just make it a flying brick like the Ascendant?

I would use netherbrick stairs instead of wood, I'm pretty sure those are allowed. Unless you don't want to change the whole theme of your ship with the red.

As I said, everything is placeholder. The devs have mentioned making a cheap alloy for making ships, presumably this alloy would have a stairs form as well Very Happy

And now, progress on the Crusader class frigate *drumroll*



The segment shown is 1.7 (almost 2x) times the length of the Companion class corvette, to give a sense of the scale. And this is only half the ship Razz

By now you're probably wondering why I kept the same design 'HURR DURR TIEL ARE CREATIVE NOT'. To quote fr0stbyte's quote of another guy who probably quoted some obscure greek, there is no need to reinvent the wheel. At least for this design. I promise the Emnity will have a completely different departure on design styling, probably going to settle on looking very blocky and rugged (think UNSC ships in Halo).

In any case, what would anyone suggest? (other than finishing the ship for full criticism, I'm bloody tired)
