vendi i modellini?

Where do you get your reference photos?
It looks so great!

If the light is from plasma rockets, and that plasma is approximating a black body, then the blue color means the plasma is very hot. Hot plasma contains faster ions.

Very well done.

While waiting for Fractal to finish the final 5% I’m happy to share my newly finished model – a Tie variant that has been around since the 80s but never really shown in proper detail as far as I know. Fractal, I hope you don’t mind me putting the link here:

Nice.

I’d say you’ve spruced up that troop-tub with plausible-looking structural bracing, landing gear, engine/exhaust arrangement & just enough snazzy lighting. A light missile tube/turret or two might help compensate for the fore/aft guns’ somewhat limited coverage, but it’s not like these things should be short of escorts anyhow. Altogether another worthy extrapolation of early Legends material.

At the scale the lander is working at, there seems to be a lot of role overlap with the Sentinel. Perhaps the TIE is cheaper, but I prefer the Sentinel aesthetic.

From what I can tell: Sentinel lands a platoon or two in hostile environments and/or transports very light vehicles/small amounts of cargo – not necessarily in the same system as its base/home ship (thank you hyperdrive). TIE Lander puts an entire company, plus light combat vehicles, on the ground in the same system as its home ship. This makes Sentinel a good all-round utility ship that’s capable of participating in out-of-system light assault missions/special forces incursions when required, whereas TIE Lander is a specialist heavy troop lander for the initial stages of a full ground invasion. I could be wrong,… Read more »

Good point re: the per-unit scale gap, though Lander might well be hyperdrive-equipped. Can’t see much reason to omit that feature besides doctrinal paranoia (which, granted, could be a huge factor).

Nice stuff! I love the crazy, old-school comics and RPG ships. If you’re looking for inspiration, there’s lot of old stuff buried in this online archive:

So Fractal sorry if your getting annoyed by this type of comment many times but how is the Imperator redux progress so far? Or you are busy with life work again which I bet is most likely to be and if so when it is finish? Just want to know since it is almost 2 months since your last model upload.

fractal how do you make these 3d models im interested on starting to do spaceships. and i love the secutor, its my wallpaper wight now, and it looks beautiful.

Hey Fractal there a problem with my two comments that I tried to post it but it say “Comment awaiting moderation” and it only showing it to me but not to the others including you I bet, so is there anything you can do to fix it?

Anonymous
Guest

So Fractal I’m sure you already know this picture:comment image

We already know about the 2 Anonymous Star Cruisers with the #2 at the middle (comment image ) & #3 at the top (comment image ) but there is another ship that is similar to the other two cruisers at the bottom which Saxon have somehow miss it.

So any thoughts of this unknown possible star cruiser?

Conor McGuire

Some amazing work Fractal!
Tell me are any of these models going to be seen in Stellaris Fallen Republic Mod?

You should really get a quote from disney and Lucasarts I wager you could have designed something better than that price of shit they called the FO Dreadnaught

So Fractal I was thinking since the Vic 2 was basically a multi-role ship while the Vic 1 was a missile boat. I wonder what the missile boat variant of the Imperator would be like and how practical it is any thoughts?

gorkmalork
Guest

IIRC, Fractal figures the Vic-1 mainly needed its big honkin’ missile battery for defense of fixed positions and/or extra damage potential against big Clone Wars-era opponents like the Lucrehulk. Since Impstars are markedly bigger, heavier-gunned & intended as a pursuit-capable ‘jack of most trades’ type, there might not have been much demand/need for extra anti-ship torp carriage, though the bow brim notches could probably fit a decent box-launcher set.

Hey would you be so kind as to maybe find the time to finish your flying fortress, or whatever it was, and your star galleon? I really liked where you were going with those and would like to see them completed. If you’ve already completed them could you please link me to the finished product?

Hey Fractal, It would be cool if you could make a “Supremacy” or a “Resurgent-class” ship.
And what is your next Project after the Imperator-class?

valoren
Guest

fractal, will you ever have a go at modeling old republic/sith empire era warships like Derriphan frigates, the reliance one command ship or even tetan assault ships ?

Anonymous

So about the hyperspace ramming in The Last Jedi I found two videos talking about how it work (with the former being star wars lore from Star Wars Explained and the latter being what would happen if something like that happen in real life from Nerdist but with Because Science with Kyle Hill) here are the links to them.

Hey, Fractal, I’m getting started on 3D modelling and in layman’s term, how do you make models of these ships so detailed yet not crash your computer from the sheer poly count?

Anonymous
Guest

So Fractal any progress on the Imperator redux so far?

PhantomFury

He’s doing this in his spare time, so let’s use this time to build up anticipation 😛

You know what one of the things that I don’t understand in star wars legends is that why the hell did the galactic alliance replace the T-65 X-wing with this freak of machine known as the CF9 Crossfire:comment image/revision/latest?cb=20070706012440

PhantomFury
Guest

If I remember correctly, this is legacy era craft, which would make T-65 a maintenance nightmare in that time period.

gorkmalork
Guest

That’s actually a better-looking rendition than anything I recall from the pages of Legacy, though the thing still seems more like a vaguely B-wing-derived gunboat than anything you’d assign interceptor duty. At least most of that series’ capital craft seemed conceptually solid.

So Fractal since heavy blaster cannons and light turbolasers can be use as point defense on large warships like star destroyers and star cruisers could the gatling laser cannon (like the one on the A6 Juggernaut) be use as point defense as well?

Valoren
Guest

Probably. I guess AA defense is already part of its intended purpose on the juggernaut. I have no idea what its rate-of-fire is though…

Fractal what do you use to model youre ships

He use 3ds Max.

So Fractal how much progress on the Imperator redux so far right now?

Just realize that since this is Easter holiday you might be busy with you family for a while which make me felt stupid for not noticing it, so sorry if you feel being rushed by me.

Aeriosus
Guest

Yo Fractal, do you have a “MBT of Star Destroyers” designed?

Anonymous
Guest

So Fractal out of all the Imperator designs that was in the movies which one of these designs is your favorite the ANH, ESB, ROTJ or Rouge One?

Anonymous
Guest

So Fractal there a YouTube video recently made by Kyle Hill from Because Science about how the Last Jedi plot holes (Mostly the ships slowdown after their fuel run out and the bombs dropping on the dreadnought) are not actually plot holes.
Here the video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CPTIjLPPdIM

I can see how the out-of-gas thing is more a matter of losing the ability to maintain relative acceleration vis-a-vis FO pursuit (plus uneven thruster shutdowns to account for frigate tumbling), and the bombers likely had *some* means of ejecting/propelling their ordnance besides mark-1 momentum (repulsors? tractor beams? Little of both?)…it’s more the latter crafts’ ponderous crawl to spitting distance that bugs me. They needed a character-shielded Hero Pilot(TM) to strip off their more/less stationary killslab target’s ludicrously piddly dorsal defense singlehandedly, and even with that starting edge were butchered by a late-arriving TIE screen. ‘Desperately-repurposed naval minelayers’ is the… Read more »

So Fractal since you said the Imperator is quite fast and agile at speeds of between 3500g-3700g how long does the Imperator take to turn the other way round like going from north to south?

Any chance for the Venator joining the lineup?

So Fractal right now how close is the Imperator redux to being finish?

PhantomFury

I want to get a VR headset so I could just “fly” around that thing and soak up the detail!

Rhad

This is specced out at ~3700g, right?

Anonymous

So Fractal about the updated sensors domes and tower on top of the Imperator’s tower bridge like these:comment image
Will those be on your other ship models that have the outdated versions (Like the Victory, Procursator, Allegiance, Fulgor, etc.) or not?

Taghmata+Omnissiah
Guest

Fractal, some long time ago you did start WIP on X-70B Phantom. You plan to finish it one day or it is abandoned for good?

countvertex
Guest

Considering the Star Destroyers rear defense: I’m counting 8 turrets with a rear fireing arc (provided the four ones that are visible are mirrored on the other side). Did I miss any? What scale of lasers are those?

BigBlue
Guest

If I remember correctly, they’re single light turbolaser with single heavy laser turrets. I think Fractal initially developed them for the Crusader-class a few years back.

Right then guess all that left is the Imperator’s ventral with the power generator dome and hanger bays and is all finish right fractal?
