Galactic News - Praetorian Industries to deploy battle fleet to “demonstrate” new weapons line
For those that are not in the Business of Intergalactic War - Praetorian Industries are a private weapons manufacturing company located in the Argena Cluster.
In what has been described as a bold move the Chairman of Praetorian Industries has extended an invitation to all shipwrights through the known galaxy to submit their designs to be used for the new Praetorian Industries Live Weapons Fire Fleet.
When asked to comment about the “Live Fire” Fleet, Mr Praetors only comment was:
“The best way to sell weapons is to show the customer what they can do”
A long time ago in a thread far far away, Praetors asked if i could help with some turret designs for his modules he has put together. Over time and with input from various people, a collection of modules and graphics is slowing becoming a mod. However we are missing one major component, the ship designs. Therefore we have created this contest for members of the community to submit design to be used in what we hope will become the a Community Created Mod.
If you wish to talk about the Community Created Mod please head over here and share your thoughts - viewtopic.php?f=23&t=5909
::Ship Design Rules::
- The competition is open to anyone and you can submit multiple designs
- Ship designs that that use components from other mods - PLEASE GET THE AUTHORS PERMISION FIRST ! (because i will check)
- Designs using Copyright material will not be accepted - ie ships from other games, movies etc.
The suggested colour scheme is dark grey with a colour highlight
When you submit your design, Please let me know which category it belongs to.
- Fighters / Drones / Corvettes
- Frigates / Destroyers
- Cruisers / Dreadnaughts
- Stations / Leviathans
Remember there is no such thing as a bad design, only a design that can be improved. So if you want feedback on how to make your ship look awesome, now is the time to send it in and get advice from people that enjoy and mod the game. Who knows, your design may be voted the winner.
::Submission of Designs::
To keep the competition interesting, I (Darkstar076) will be posting the competition entries. You can PM or email me on hotmail your designs so i will post them. That way the votes are based on designs and not on who is more popular.
When you submit a design you can either send me a link to the image or send me the file itself.
THe only condition is that you must remain Anonymous while the competition is running
::Judging of entries::
- All registered members of the forum can cast a total of 6 votes at any time for their favourite designs and post any comments / feedback for the author. For example:
3 votes - Design #8
2 votes - Design #3
1 vote - Design #15
- I really like Designs 8 unique use of the nacelles from the Eagle Cruiser.
- Design 3 would look awesome if they increased the size of the engines.

Since all of us are flat broke, we are not in any position to offer a cash prize.
Therefore the winner of this competition will receive Praise and Undying Gratitude from the Community.
You will also have first invite to the beta test of the completed mod.
(If any other member has a suggestions for a prize - please let me know)
Once the competition has closed and the Winner announced, Praetors will send PM’s to the respective authors to confirm permission if he can include their designs (with full credits) for various roles in this community mod. To avoid hurting Praetors feelings I kindly ask that you please do not submit a design of your ultimate ship only to refuse permission for it to be used in this mod when asked.
While there is no set colour scheme, but it would be highly recomended that you have a copy of your design where you can easily change the colour scheme should one be decided.
