are you going to do more work on this? I would love to see a better more powerful acclamator, a multipurpose one though, can carry some troops but mostly figther carrier and frigate/cruiser. this is an interesting FO light cruiser, something like this woule be awesome but with more details and less exposed bridge.

I guess this ship will be more powerful than the Dreadnaught Class Star Frigate right?

Fair guess, what with the greater volume for potential reactor area-this Acc variant might have more hangar space than a Dread, but I doubt it cuts into overall juice enough to make up said bulk differential. Still leaves plenty of room for experience/crew quality/surprise to make a difference, though.

I almost think you should take overhang out and just transition the bridge module into the upper superstructure like the Fulgor. I just think the proportions will work better.

Rand Ecliptic, maybe?

Funny thing is, prior to the Disneyboot that ship was (finally) pinned down by Dark Horse Comics as an “Imperial II” class frigate which sported Acclamator-evocative superstructure & aft fin, but a much slimmer bow & odd double port-to-starboard hangar layout. Since SW’s current official curators have yet to flesh out their spin on that story, I see nothing stopping us from ‘head-retconning’ Ecliptic as a member of this class.

Until they again re-tell the story of The Mutiny On The Rand Ecliptic….a thrilling adventure of daring and intrigue soon to be a Movie of The Week special presentation….I hope and wish.

Between Rogue One and Wedge & Hobbie’s own defection on Rebels, I’d say Biggs Darlkighter and however many fellow mutineers have a fair shot at *some* flavor of update to their tale.

So you said this ship have 1/8th of the ISD power right?:http://bbs.stardestroyer.net/viewtopic.php?p=4031542#p4031542
Then that’s make it a reverse Compellor Class Star Cruiser which you said to have 8 times the power of the ISD.

A new addition to the Acclamator family? Awesome! The command tower seems oddly proportioned for a ship similar in size to an Acclamator, though; it looks quite oversized. Then again, ISDs have those huge command towers, so what do I know. Perhaps you mean this to show a step in the evolution of ship designs that occurred when the Republic became the Empire: going from the smaller towers on the Acclamator and Venator, to this, to the big, hulking ISD-style towers that we see on nearly all the Imperial capital ships. Also, I didn’t realize Folgors were that big. Whoa.… Read more »

Hmm, from that bottom pic’s angle the bridge module just looks about half again the volume of a transport-variant Acc’s command pod. Wouldn’t exactly call that outsized.

As for the Fulgor’s role, that design sports a few punchy-looking ball turrets, but speed & sensors seem to be its main priorities. I could see it specializing in running down fast corvettes & lighter frigates (and fencing with Dreadnaught/Assault Frigate-tonnage adversaries long enough for help to jump in) when not on recon/picket duty.

Fractal, you have the official Soren Seal-Of-Approval for this project! LoL

Ah, the toothier sibling of everyone’s favorite clonetrooper bus at last. Digging the comparison lineup, thrusters, strangely familiar-looking bridge module & fantail extension (which just *works* with this particular chunky dagger).

If we’re taking moderately pretentious latin name suggestions for the class, could I put out Exculcator and Praeventor?
Fine work as usual, Fractal. Looking forward to another tough medium frigate in the Republican line of battle that will eventually end up in a half-dozen Empire at War RTS mods.

Can’t help feeling those monikers are a bit too easily mixed up with Executor & Praetor. Don’t suppose ‘Gladius’ might fit, or would that stray too far from Acclamator’s implied theme?

I’ve been following Star Citizen development for a while, so when someone mentions the Gladius in a space combat context, I always think about a light interceptor instead of a capital ship.

So I guess this variant will be similar to the Acclamator II-class assault ship right?:http://starwars.wikia.com/wiki/Acclamator_II-class_assault_ship
