pimp my ship?


#1

alright, so heres the story. i found this app called pimp my gun (http://pimpmygun.doctornoob.com/index.php) and saw that someone had made something that looked like a ship. everytime i see a ship in 2d i instantly think of GSB, so i did what any modder would. i started experimenting.


i made half the ship in the app, then edited a little in paint.net

turned out pretty good for a 5 minute ship…

EDIT: nother one done.


also made in about 5 minutes…

anyways, i wanted to share this to all of you who are/want to start modding gsb, but find it hard to make the graphics.

#3

Big thanks to my favorite Swedish ninja for that useful find. :wink:


#4

Some ships i made
Titan cruiser


Legacy frigate


Jericho frigate


Phoenix fighter


Volcano cruiser


#5

A very unique race could be made from that app me thinks?! :smiley: OOoooorrrr some turrets?


#6

Ow, very interesting designs, they are very moddable, lol, nice shapes to fit the turrets and make glows / tractors, are we expecting a new ancient race here???

P.D.: i coudnt stop imagining, those ships will be very easy to model on SU, and the final result will be awesome, think about it!!. -.-


#7

LOL

Can make a bunch of really quick mods if I omit damage and hulks.


#8

Nice!

Battlelord, broadside cruiser:

Weapon:
12 Side Canon batteries (6 by side)
2 Frontal Laser batteries
2 AA Laser canon

Yes, I’ve found a way to make some weapon fire only from one side!
(Next mod (After my work for the Praetorian Ind.))

Well, there goes my problems with creating the ships.

-Epicness!-

Now I just have to worry about turrets and weapon effects.

EDIT: I found a webpage with the entire freakin’ spectrum of color codes

Here’s my first ship, the Scythe.

(I’ll have to re-do it and add gun positions)

Excellent find, Shylo! :smiley: It also beats the hell out of the built-in color chooser in standard phpBB forum software (i.e., ours). What delicious insanity. :wink:

I had an idea a while back for something like this but using GSB parts. For example, there would be an engines tab with engines from each race, bridges tab, main hulls, etc. I got the Alliance, Federation, and Empire engines and PMed them to Kemp suggesting he put a “ship builder” like that in GSBEdit (which reminds me to check that project’s progress) and I can post them here if anyone wants, although its not really that hard to do yourself.


#13

It is indeed on my list, and may actually get done one day. I have to admit, I haven’t touched GSBEdit recently unfortunately due to real life getting in the way. I will make it up to you guys though (assuming there is still a potential userbase for the app).


#14

I still check the website each day to see if there’s anything new and cool that’s been made!


#15

me too it kinda addicting lol

FAV LINK:
Speaking of reading, many people are excited because reading brings them [color=Black] Saynotomonkeytreehongkong both knowledge and entertainment. By reading, we can learn lots of information and know our history. But for some people, reading is not their priority. They will choose to watch movies to have fun. However, I think people can benefit a lot by reading.

First of all, reading can let us know what have happened in history. Since history is recorded in books, if we read books, then we can not only what have happened in history but also we can better understand the great figures of the age.

Secondly, reading can enrich our knowledge. By reading, we can know different kinds of things, how things happen and how to avoid bad things from happening. Books record a wide range of things about life. Through reading, we can know various aspects of life.

Thirdly, reading teaches us skills. There are so many books about how to learn a certain language, how to get a good job, how to become popular in your circle, how to cook and so on. Thus, these kinds of books can make us more skillful if we do a certain thing.

All in all, we can find lots of benefits through reading.
