You've seen the destroyer in a WIP, but we kinda snuck up on you with the frigate, hopefully. Image

Destroyer:

This shows off the non-blinking nav lights that I've put in the ion cannon "particle accelerator" rings on each side of the destroyer.

Frigate:

Image

The two "bumps" on the front are the plasma bomb launchers; the turrets are the standard Raider light projectile weapons.

Both ships mount a new "burst-fire" plasma bomb launcher:

capable of firing two shots instead of only one, as on the Kushan assault frigate.

In case you're wondering, the plasma launchers are to crank up the destroyer's firepower a little bit since it's missing the energy cannon turrets of the Kushan destroyer.

These are the only two new ships that are going to be in the 0.6 release, as CommanderJones is going to be taking a vacation from modelling for a few weeks (hopefully AFTER he gets the 0.6 release poster done Image ). We have, however, done some .shp file tweaking to many of the Raider ships for the new release, as well.

Look for 0.6 in the next couple of weeks...

OMG! Coolies. Great work team, great work. You managed to do all that, while Pierce confessed that he was lazy? Image j/k

This brings a great addition to the fleet. Can't wait to see them in action. Say, now that those two are done, which ships are still left on the to-do list?

Very nice stuff, even if the frigate is a little dull Image

Still, AA for your screenshots!

Well, the reason I was calling myself lazy was that these were sitting on my hard drive but I wasn't doing a thing with them. Image The destroyer has been half-.mex'ed for weeks now... Image I did have to wait for CommanderJones to do some minor tweaking on the frigate, but even that's been done since last Wednesday...

And of course the frigate's dull, it's the assault frigate! Image

As for the AA, I thought it WAS on... oh, wait, I turned it off to play Red Faction 2... :/

The plasma launchers on the frigate remind me of something, but I can't put my finger on it.

Nice stuff, I think the antenna is a bit long on the destroyer, indeed I don't really think it's necessary.
But at any rate, very nice.
Oh.
