Hey Fractal what do you think of this Star Destroyer with a tiny superlaser art?

I’d be seriously wondering if a mini-SL scaled to cram on an Impstar-ballpark hull would be worth the drain from engines, conventional armament & shielding-plus, the engineering demands of that rotate-to-firing-position mechanism.

Hey Fractalsponge! Any chance of seeing the Gladiator-class star destroyer here?

Peeps have certainly asked about that prior, but there’s a great deal on Fractal’s plate already (among other things, at least a half-dozen WIPs besides this one).

I have been asking for a while…I have an affinity for the older, smaller EU ships like the Gladiator and the Marauder corvette. They just seem to never get good art. I know the Gladiator has been getting some love lately with the Armada game.

I can see where you’re coming from there-Rebels in particular seemed to be about 65% Impstars & corvettes for quite a stretch. Wouldn’t mind some destroyer or cruiser-grade Corellian ships (assuming the Empire didn’t just have ’em subcontract KDY wedges) from someone, somewhere, down the line.

I would have loved to see an Imperial battlegroup in Rebels that was an amalgamation of ships….not just a bunch of Impstars, Gozantis and Interdictors. Maybe a couple Imps, a Tector, plus Vics, Gladiators, and a Venator for a carrier

@Chris
Sounds like a rough day for Home One & her current escorts; pity that ‘Impstars are all you need/anyone cares about at their scale category’ default seems to hamper large-ship variety (for the Imps, anyhow) onscreen. I’m wondering when/if they’ll even bother introducing Executor, and what sort of mass-gunner-lobotomizing said monstrosity would suffer to ensure the central cast’s survival.

Plus, while I can more/less roll with the Arquitens as a ship fit for threatening CR90s but still vulnerable to heavy fighter-yield antics, the Gozanti’s minuscule TIE loadout is a bit underwhelming. Granted, the thing may be more of a walker bus.

@Fractal
Point re: budget limits…which in turn reinforces the “Impstars are all anyone sees” factor, and from there that brainbug where they’re the heaviest OT-era Imp warship that isn’t some megalomaniac’s custom vanity ride. As for the Gozanti, makes sense in that context-I keep forgetting they’re barely over twice a YT-series freighter’s bulk.

What program are these being made in? Maya? Unreal? Solid works? 3DS Max? I ask because I have been looking to begin exploring the world of the 3D design.

As far as I know he is using 3dMax. If you haven’t yet you should also consider Blender (www.blender.org).

Awesome! Thanks for the recommendation

Holy ship batman he’s still alive, had me worried there for a bit.

Fractal apparently moonlights as a college professor-that cuts into free time now & again.

Ah, more ventral-superstructure progress; be interesting to see what those gaps in the saucer get filled with. Plus, *just* noticed the proportionate thruster beefiness.
