The Darkstar Project

Postby KungFujiApple » Wed Aug 02, 2017 4:21 am

So this is my first company that I designed. I was not and am still not that great at making ranged weapons, so you may notice it's very heavily a close combat unit.

The frame itself was influenced by Mitten Ninja's Serpent Legion

And the duel claws were influenced by Lowest Form of Wit.

Fluff:

A strike force that oversees one of the most heavily guarded mines on the planet. This mine extracts from a deposit of super concentrated gasses, deep in its core. These gasses are used for specialty plasma weapons and shields.

There is a 130 meter clearing that surrounds the mine, followed by dense thick jungle. Because of the dense jungle surrounding the mine, those of the Darkstar Project prefer to fight in close combat, either keeping in ambush for a quick strike, or waiting for the enemy to emerge from the jungle to strike all at once.

The standard frame model for this unit is the "Venmire" frame. Originally designed as a smaller, yet sturdy work frame. The Venmire frame is engineered to handle the jungle environment. Retrofitted as a combat frame it is capable of delivering quick and powerful close combat damage. Various models used are represented by "V" for Venmire followed by the model number.

I like how you took inspiration from those frames from way back, nothing better to illustrate how important is to preserve the memories of our community! Hangar Police strikes again!

Those are all very good looking as well, nice work! In the future people will look back to this as well!

Thank you for the compliments. I would have to say that I've noticed this community not only has some amazing creativity and designs, but also a friendly standard of honor. People seem to be happy to share their ideas and what they've made to help Inspire others, I find that refreshing and admirable.

If someone were to ever be inspired by any of the simple designs I come up with, that would be an honor all too great.


Vitorfaria, I wanted to say that in addition to quite a bit of your other work, I personally like this frame:

Here is a breakdown of the leader frame (V293) for LDD construction. This frame is of similar design to the Exploratory frame from The Verge (viewtopic.php?f=12&t=7712). However this is a little more basic, so I figured it would be easier to reconstruct. Please also note in the top comments that this frame design was inspired by mittenninja.

I have added the LDD file for the V293 Darkstar to the Compilation of Frame Instructions 2017 version thread. I'll post it here as well for convenience. Please note that the LDD would not allow the placement of the trans blue round onto the technic peg on the end of the spike weapon, so it has been left to the side as a placement note. I apologize if this is an inconvenience.
