As part of the angelcore branch i've decided to work now on a thor class battleship and its weaponry i started working on a design for the battleship but somehow ended up with a gun barrel lol so about 20 minutes after making the start of a ship i ended up with a gun barrel for a turret which then appeared about 5 hours later
the gun itself is almost completed minus a few external details and its interior
the bay on the other hand is going thorugh changes every time i get a new idea for the design of the ship
let me know what you think guys
for those of you that might wonder the model in the pictures has 18,744 polys or 36,823 tri's
The turret itself looks nice and functional as well, for an energy based weapon. Unless she is shell fed from below.
But, and maybe this is just a problem with the angle you're showing us, I think you've got a function vs. form problem.
From the angle we're seeing this at, it looks like the left gun is curved waaaaay too far inwards. If this thing focuses the beams together to form a single "super-beam" (ala Death Star), I'd make the emitters look different. As it stands now, it LOOKS as if the beams converge just meters from the gun.
But, like I said, it might just be an angle of viewing thing.
Keep up the great work!
and the barrels are lined so that the 2 shells dont contact with each other when fired be abit of deflection caused if that happened and who knows where the shells would end up
I concur on the angled doors. Also, the doors should be above the gun rails for easy deployment.
I would like to see an over- all design of the ship.
