Just Some Random Ships

Postby Artasid » Thu Jul 12, 2018 2:14 am

I got bored and made some random Light Carriers. I didn't know where else to put them and I have a feeling I might be making some more random vessels for IO so hence this thread. Feel free to add your own creations if you wish.

ImageRandom Light Carriers
BLUE: 1Kd6 Frame Catapult, d6Rh d6Rh Point Defense Turret, d6G Freight Engines
WHITE: 1Kd6 Frame Catapult, d6Rh d6Rh Point Defense Turret, d6G Freight Engines

Hope you all enjoyed and I eagerly await any and all comments you wish to share.
And if you wish to add your own random ship builds here, please feel free to do so.

Those look very good! Simple, clean and to the point!

Kinda like a more angular counterpart to Hyve's Nimbuses, might build something along these lines!

Based off HyveMynd's ORT Noctilucent HVA, and inspired by VitorFarias Delegator Cruiser, I decided to try my hand at this ship design, which I call Checkers (For obvious reasons)

ImageHeavy Cruiser 'Checkers'
Checkers Heavy Cruiser: d6Rd d6Rd d8Rd Dual Assault Range Torpedo Tubes, d6Y Comms Antenna, d6Y Range Finder Array

This design was a bit of a challenge as I tried to get the dimensions right, plus I had limited parts in the right color, but I am well pleased how it turned out.
I'd like to thank HyveMynd for sharing the design, and I'd like to thank VitorFaria for the inspiration to try this build. I know it seems like I'm copying someone elses work, but I try to add my own little details to make it slightly different. I hope this is not a problem, and if it is, then I wish to know and I will correct it.

Hope you enjoyed and as always, I eagerly await any and all comments you wish to share.

That looks excellent, Artasid!

Love the color scheme and your engines assembly, might make it full circle and incorporate some ideas from it!

Thank you VitorFaria, I'm glad you like the color and engine details, and I would love to see any ideas you get from it. I can provide a breakdown shot or LDD of the engines if you need.


The Deimos Class Corvette was named after the Greek God of dread and terror. During it's first voyage, the ship came under attack from pirates that were determined to board and capture the vessel, however, with it's multiple Point Defense Turrets and heavily layered Armor Plates, the pirates and their boarding frames faced a difficult opposition and instead fled in disgrace. The dread of having to encounter this corvette again in close combat has given it its name. Though heavily defended, it severely lacks any offensive capabilities and must rely on nearby escorts to provide any counterattack. Though it is a capital ship, it has often been used as the defensive point of most fleets or as an armored transport for important individuals.

ImageDeimos Class Capital Corvette
Deimos: d6Rh d6Rh d8Rh Multiple Point Defense Turrets, d6B d6B Multi-Layered Hardened Armor Plates

This design was based off a vessel from an old space simulator game called FreeSpace2. I hope you enjoyed and I eagerly await any and all comments you wish to share.

Really solid looking, Artasid! Gotta love all of that coherent armor!

My random IO ship building spree continues with another ship design from FreeSpace2, this time, a pair of Fenris Frigates

ImageFenris Frigates
Fenris': d6Rd d6Rd d8Rd Dual Assault Range Torpedo Tubes, d6Y Rotating Radar Array, d6G Frigate Engines

These are perhaps one of my simplest builds to date, but at the same time, very characteristic. I'm currently working on alternate loadouts for these, so I will keep you posted.

Sorry for all the random IO vessels lately, I've been out of ideas for Frames and I figured that instead of stagnating at my computer, I should try to refine my building skills for ships. I find myself using parts that I did not think to use and I think I'm imporving in building level, but I'll let you all be the judges.

The Apex Carrier is essentially a flying pair of frame hangers. Some have givien it the nickname 'The Box" because it usually has a surprise inside, two frame companies. Unlike most other carriers, however, this one can also fill in a minor support role as it has two Support Range Beam Cannons, one over each hanger, to help discourage attackers from getting too close. Of course this also limits the Apex's capabilities, so it should never be without other supportive vessels.

ImageApex Carrier and Frame Companies
Apex: d6Ra d6Ra d8Ra Dual Support Beam Cannons, 3Kd6 Dual Frame Catapults.

Hope you enjoyed and as always, I eagerly await any and all comments, questions, insults, threats, or suggestions you wish to share.

That carrier is deliciously beefy!

Also, kind of a random note, seeing colored bases is very refreshing! Blue and purple look very distinct and yet still fit the space theme!
