well hi evryone i been a member for a while now , never posted thow been only gathering pics have collection close to 15k pics now
i dont have neither experience or talent in 3d modeling but i thought i give it a try , ever since i saw the wing commander movie i wanted some nice pics about the flagship of the concordia battle group the concordia her self , evry time i searched for her i saw some flat decked carrier thingi and finaly i learned that there are many ships named conncordia my favorite being a super-cruiser class ship never the less i never found any quality pic so i thought i try to make one at least in my skill range i know google sketch up isnt the best but its hard enough for me:D any comments are welcome
ps: well i was a bit confused couse in the few shots where u could see the ship in the movie it had no fins but at the begining when on a computer hologram u see the battlegroup the concordia has fins , so i kinda used a bit of my imagination for example i added a underside gun and couse i love fins i used them as well , gona add secondary armement and aa defence turrets as well as torpedo tubes its a super cruiser after all so there is no such thing as enough weapons:d
ps anyone who has some material on this ship i would apriciate it
Looking forward to seeing some more :thumb:
The main difference between the movie version of this ship and the video game version is that the movie version could divide itself slightly to reveal the flight deck, they also called this their shields? the movie is very strange and not like the video game at all lol.
I liked the designs of the capships in the movie though, and of course the capship battle scenes were some of the best scifi battle stuff on film.
i found some document on that site where it said that the movie concordia isnt the same ship from the one in the game , i am also a big fan of big capital ship battles
well buying the movie wouldnt be a prob only i am from romania and cant pay from here only if i have a serious credit card the easy to get ones arent accepted outside of the country:P
in the movie at the end tolwin orders to laucnh rapiers and broadswords so the ship has a fighter bay only i am at a loss where to put it couse in my eyes its a battleship mainly not a carrier so it cant be to exposed , was thinking to ad it on its underside and to be retracktable u know so its there but doesent compromise the ship in combat what u think?
However, as far as the different Concordia's go, if you want to make the most popular one, use the one from the game. A lot of stuff in the movie really deviated from what the several Wing Commander games had already established. I think you've done a very good job so far with what you've done on the movie Concordia, so maybe you can try the game Concordia after you finish this one.
and its to flat looking for me i , i know the movie deviates in alot of aspects but i kinda like this model , allways was a fan of big gun battleships:)
gona post on wing commander cic as well hope they dont bite my head off dont wana offend any wing commander fan
The sides of the ship are heavily armored so I think thats what they consider shields not some sort of energy shield. In the movie the captain says to raise shields so they close up the ship and show some sort of graphic display of the sides of the ship closing up.
i know that the flight deck is in the middle but in my concordia i dont want that couse the tiger claw is a carrier and only fights with her guns if need be this one is the oposite its a big gun battleship ready to kick ass but it has some capacity for strike craft i would say dramaticly smaller complement then even a small carrier like the tiger claw
i was thinking of adding som big axial mounted super gun on the ship u know wich has its firing end in the nose some sort electro magneticly acelarated weapon like a rail gun , something to be realy powerfull
only i dont know much of WC weapons i know the game version concordia had some sort of super weapon wich was flawed and all but was interested in the idea
oh and question the big guns on the concordia what are they? mass drivers or some sort of plasma weapon like a turbo laser?
well a little progress , the main guns hope u like it
The idea of the word phase was used to explain why fighters could no longer destroy capships in wing commander 2 compared to previous wing commander games. Only bombers with torpedos that could bypass phase shields were able to damage capships and of course other capships with phase cannons could get through shields.
The way the concordia looked in wc2 pc game it looked more like a battle ship than a carrier and the phase cannon blast just appeared directly in front of the whole ship when fired kind of like it was formed there instead of blasting out of a tube or gun barrel.
althow i loved the fins i decided to lose em widened the hull a bit where the command tower is and i redesigned the tower as well couse it was way to slim and long
and made a bit of the ribs on its side hope u like em
secondary weapon turrets and the bridge
ps one question anyone would like to help me and texture it once its done? couse i know nothing about texturing
The massive gun in the front looks way too big to me but I haven't looked at any ref pics so it is just a personal opinion.
