    DarkNovation reacted to Ben Fargo in Fan Art Wallpaper of the Core Unit   
    Both are very good, but to me, the core shows up better in the lighter one.  If it's possible, I would suggest having a darker background with a little more light on just the core itself.

    DarkNovation got a reaction from Cybrex in Fan Art Wallpaper of the Core Unit   
    I just wanted to show my progression on a wallpaper for my pc of the core unit I have been working on, Most of the model is finished but I need to add small textures such as the "D" and the "dynamic core unity" text on the outside. Also planning to add some nano former effects floating around it (as seen in some of the published videos) and alter the colours and make some for the static cube unit.

    DarkNovation reacted to ATMLVE in Selling Multiple Ships in One Transaction   
    At this point we aren't sure exactly what connection mechanics will be like, or exactly how transactions will work. My guess to start out would be no, if you sell a construct blueprint, then either the smaller constructs will have to be sold separately as separate blueprints, or they will all be combined into a single blueprint, and then detached manually after construction. Perhaps in the future, there will be a way to connect ships together by some sort of connector, allowing the ability to save a construction of multiple ships as a single blueprint.
     
    Some other alternatives would be:
    - Combining all the different construct blueprints into a single package or "folder", so that they are separate blueprints but buying them all at the same time is the only way to get any of them.
    - Simply selling the actual physical ship itself. Like, you build the big ship and the little ships and put them where they need to go, and then someone buys the whole thing directly.

    --New's from Novacore Spaceport--
    Novacore is proud to present our first developed spacecraft, The Stalker
     
    This ship is everything you need for those close quarter reconnaissance missions. The ship was engineered to have a sleek profile with a coating of dark grey/black paint to allow for the ship to blend in to the dark background of space. We also lined the cockpit with a film of dark red tint to also add to the stealthy look.
     
    Specifications
    - Seats one pilot
    - Small storage contained contained within the ship
    - Life support systems
    - Comms array and short range signal jammer
    - Four front mounted high-power spotlights to allow for easier manoeuvring throughout space (e.g. asteroid fields) 
    - The Stalker is equipped with two side mounted semi swivel, high powered beam lasers to allow for fast, hard hitting, close-quarter combat.
    - The ship is powered by a medium deuterium fission reactor, along with two large and four small fusion engines. The deuterium fission reactor allows us to achieve the red energy being released from the fission engines.

    Creating Paths for Mankind
     
    What do we hope to achieve?
    We hope to be the first to explore the unexplored. We achieve this by combining the skills of skilled engineers and talented designers to craft a highly technological spacecraft to survey and study the undiscovered pockets of space.
     When we manage to discover these new pockets of space we immediately setup beacons and allow our Far-Worlds division to start construction of our Stargates to open up that sector of space to every civilian.
    What does the organization focus on?
    - Opening new trade routes -
    - Spaceship development -
    - Industry trade -
    - Contracting services -
    - Technology advancement -
    Diplomacy
    We don't want to have any strict laws that bide you from having fun whilst a member of Novacore but we will have some rules(list coming soon) to create a safe and respectful environment for all its members.
    We are also open to alliances with other organisations, please contact DarkNovation if you are interested in what we have to offer.
     
    What roles do we offer?
    To achieve our goal we have several different decisions that make up Novacore:
    Research and Exploration - As a member of this division you will embark on the maiden voyage in our Hi-Tech research cruisers (Plans coming soon) equipped with FTL drives to begin our explorations. This role involves surveying each system entered, from planets, moons, sun size, any life sustaining planets, identifying warp points around celestial bodies and placing Stargate beacons to await the arrival of our Far-Worlds construction division to construct the Stargate.
     
    Far-Worlds Construction - The purpose of this crew is to use large industrial jump carriers to bring supplies and workers to distant worlds were no civilisation has been established. The main purpose of this fleet is to create the Stargates so more vessels are able to enter the newly discovered sector. We also use these vessels to assist in the creation space stations and planetary colonies.
     
    Novacore Spaceport - Exploring uncharted space doesn't come cheap. To solve this issue we use our technology and design department to develop ships not only to further our goals but also develop ships for civilians and private contractors. The ships we can produce are of the highest quality and are all equipped with our latest technologies.
     
    Miningcore - The Miningcore was setup to allow for the income of ore and other materials to supply our Spaceport and Factories. Members of this division use our mining ships and large transport freighters to collect material from asteroid belts and gas clouds. We also have a division that works on the surface of celestial bodies extracting materials located on various worlds.
     
    Processing and Development - This division is were the construction of our factories are commenced. We use these to turn the minerals obtained through mining and refine them into usable materials. We also use the factories to develop parts and technologies from the technology division in our Spaceport. These are then shipped to storage houses and our trading outposts with help of our logistics carriers.
     
    Defence Division - This division hosts all of our security crew and ships. Whenever an exploration expedition is planned to commence we will send a defence squad with them to make sure no entities attack the vessel. We also have mercenaries for hire open to assist other organisations in their endeavours.(Note - We only allow our services for protection and don't wish to be involved in bounty objectives)
     
    Marketing and Trade - This division is were our logistics takes place. This is were we use our industrial haulers and carries to distribute our ships from our spaceport and goods and tech from our research labs. We also setup trading outposts after we construct our Stargates in each system allowing for easier trading between allied and neutral corporations.
    Application Department
    Currently the only way you can enter the organization is by private invite or request acceptance via a PM to DarkNovation. In your PM please state what division you are interested in and what skills can you bring to the organisation.

    3 Acts of the Lambent Chapter 14: 22-23. The Kalnian Books.
     
     
     
    Mercifully, it did.
    Once I got back to Olympus Ariana—I hate that name…I wished my sleep had lasted longer.
    I am not and never will be a religious person, but I do recall something about the Devil never sleeping. Looking at what Eidolon and Mistral had achieved in eighteen hours, I just might qualify for the post of a demon hunter.
    It was nothing short of a hostile takeover and Devil Eidolon was pushing the limits of “takeover”.
    Of course, the title of an exorcist would be the next thing I would aim for. Metal shouldn’t have a soul anyway.
    I was summoned to an emergency meeting that Shiro had to drag me to. Who summoned me? Eidolon the Devil and Mistral its right hand demon.
     
    “But, I don’t want to go…” I whined.
     
    “If you don’t go, she’ll take your place. You want that?” She whispered quietly as a few people passed us on the stairs.
     
    “I couldn’t care less.” I muttered under my breath.
     
    She stopped climbing the stairs and looked down at me. There is no living thing that can survive a thirty-second stare battle with Shiro and hold its will.
     
    “Fine. I’ll go.”
     
    Shiro moved aside and let me pass.
     
    “Don’t do anything stupid in there.” She cautioned me with a smile.
     
    “I’ll be a good boy.” I retorted with just enough sarcasm in my voice to make her roll her eyes.
     
    Four guards stood at the door, looking like wilted cactuses. Nonchalantly, I passed by them and opened the doors by myself. The revolting sight of thirty-eight people around a black marble conference table with Eidolon at the head made me gag.
     
    Dear heavens. The devil has returned…
     
    “Welcome, Satoru. We didn’t think you’d come.” Mistral said with a smile that would have made Dracula’s blood freeze.
     
    “...and he’s brought demons with him this time.” I announced.
     
    “What are you talking about?” Hartmut asked, trying to read my mind.
     
    I acknowledged his curiosity by returning his gaze and his interest vanished as he looked at the table like it was a work of art.
     
    At least he isn’t possessed.
     
    Mistral pointed at the seat opposite Eidolon.
     
    “Care to sit?”
     
    “Nope.” I said and stood at the door.  
     
    A man with an egg for a head, yawned and asked:
     
    “Why?”
     
    I grinned at his reflective scalp.
     
    “I’m glad you care so much about my comfort. Tell me, do you rub oil on that, or is it naturally that shiny?”
     
    From somewhere in the room, I heard Kurotou’s stifled chuckle.
     
    “Egghead’s” face turned red.
     
    “How dare you?!”
     
    I hushed him.
     
    “Eggs don’t talk much. They break easily under pressure.”
     
    He jumped to his feet with considerable effort.
     
    “You son of—“
     
    Eidolon broke in.
     
    “That’s enough, both of you.”
     
    Egghead needs to cool down though. I don’t like boiled eggs…
     
    I took a glass of water and splashed it on his face. For a second, he was confused.
    Then, he went insane.
     
    “You bloody rat!”
     
    Sigh. He’s overheating now. With that amount of oil on his head, I wouldn’t mind scrambled eggs….
     
    I walked over to the empty seat and closed my eyes, while the Devil tried to calm down Egghead.  
    After five minutes of ranting and other members of the meeting throwing in their digressive personal opinions, the room became quiet again.
    Eidolon made the kind of sound humans do when they clear their throats. Only then did I open my eyes.
     
    “Now that that’s out of the way,”
     
    I glanced at the sizzling Egghead.
     
    “Mistral and I had this meeting called for an important reason. Satoru is unfit to be the Grand Architect and the recent events have proven that. We did him the courtesy of inviting him to the board meeting where the next Grand Architect will be chosen.”
     
    Nods and sounds of approval rose. I couldn’t help but smile. Shiro was right, after all.
     
    “Who is your candidate?” Kurotou asked.
     
    Mistral rose her hand.
    My smile widened on its own accord.
     
    Do smiles have souls?
     
    “What is funny?” A familiar voice asked from my left.
     
    Funny enough, Petrol-ski was part of the board meeting.
     
    “How can a smile have a soul? My smile keeps getting stronger with a will of its own.” I replied and leaned back.
     
    Eidolon wasn’t so sure.
     
    “Any objections?”
     
    I shook my head and whispers arose in the room. Kurotou had a confused look on his face.
     
     “None at all?” Eidolon asked, sensing some danger.
     
    I’ve got to give it to the AI. It really is perceptive. Kilo was shaking his head at me, warning me not to do anything I would regret.
     
    I don’t usually regret watching episodes of failed exorcisms.
     
    “User: Loki Torvald. Override firewall through port 5537. Eidolon, initiate and hold shut down. Block loop, count down thirty seconds, proceed. You know my voice.”
     
    They all looked confused, but I could feel Eidolon’s dark soul trembling.
     
    “What? How did you…?”
     
    “You didn’t think that I would let you run free without a back-up plan in case you did something stupid?”
     
    Its voice sounded angry, but I could detect a small hint of terror.
     
    “You can’t do this! I’m Eidolon AI. I am your advisor and the most important person here!”
     
    “Were.” I corrected, grinning.
     
    “You were the most important thing here. Until you cost me some sleep, yesterday. Ten seconds, AI. Want to do a quick virus scan?”
     
    It growled and I leaned towards the man on my left, acting as if I was going to whisper something into his ear. Eidolon flew at my head, just as the man moved towards mine.
    I will never forget the sound of metal hitting a human skull. The poor man fainted immediately and Eidolon looked perplexed for a moment, before the countdown expired and it shut down, dropping to the floor with a heavy thud.
    I used my foot to push the dead metal away and turned towards the silent people.  
     
    Exorcism, successful.
     
    “I just killed the Devil. Any objections?”
     
    Some mouths were wide open; others were sealed shut. Some eyes were frozen, looking at Eidolon; others were full of fear, staring at me. I looked at Mistral and froze for a second.
    She was unfazed.
     
    The student becomes the master. The demon becomes the Devil.
     
    I gave her the best smile I could manage and turned to Petrol-ski. 
     
    “Why are you here?”
     
    His confident composure had taken a serious blow. That much was obvious as he mouthed some inaudible words.
    I sighed.
     
    They are dumbstruck at the powerful dispossession; it would seem…
     
    “I can’t hear you…” I said in a sweet tone.
     
    He shuddered.
     
    “We…need to rally…our members. Allies…need to be forged.”
     
    I frowned.
     
    “What allies? You want to throw me out as well?”
     
    “No! I had no part in this!”
     
    “That’s what they all say. You are not a member of Oethe Inc., nor a person from Terra Ulterior. Eidolon was the reason you are in this room, as such you are its friend. That makes you my enemy.”
     
    The blood drained from his face, as I stretched out my hand towards Kilo and he handed me a polished pistol.
     
    “I came here, because I care for my people!”
     
    I grinned.
     
    “I’m sure you do.” And I pointed the gun at his chest.
     
    The man in him returned and he glared at me.
     
    “You can’t shoot me.”
     
    Kilo held his head in his hands and Hartmut closed his eyes.  
    I fired, twice.
    His face froze and he looked like he died, before he realised that he was unharmed.
     
    “Say that again, and I will shoot you for real the next time. Now, I will send you with an ambassador. Politics is boring talk and we need to get your embattled people and the Earldom of Mercia clear on our conditions—whatever they are, anyway. Arkanos?”  
     
    The young man on the far right answered.
     
    “Yes?”
     
    “You are the Menon for now.”
     
    Mistral spoke at last.
     
    “What is that?”
     
    “He’s in charge of politics. Did you not read the Kalnian Books?”
     
    Her smile faded as she realised where this was heading.
     
    “Thinking is burdensome, my dear. I prefer to live in the moment.”
     
    After thirty minutes of boring, unnecessary conversations, I screamed at them to shut their mouths up and leave.
    I hated talking with any person other than myself, Shiro, Kuro and Kilo (in that order), with the exception of a few old people. To be honest, I hated talking at all, and this board meeting had me completely pissed off.
    They left like a stampede, save for the unconscious man lying on the floor.
     
    “Kael.”
     
    I called and he froze at the door.
     
    “I need to talk with you about our research and development division. But first, Kurotou,”
     
    He looked in from outside as I signalled Kael to follow us.
     
    “Let’s walk. I need you to do me a favour…”

    I got bored and decided to start working out rough plans for possible ships that my organisation would start developing when the game becomes live. The are low poly and crappy quality but they give the rough idea of what I want to build.
     
    The first(well second) ship I have developed is a mining barge. Its purpose is to fend off attacking enemies and store the materials that the small miners collect. It also serves as a carrier to move the small miners long distances with its FTL drive.
     
    Fitment of the ship:
    Has 2 large cannon turrets and one medium sided cannon turret(Not sure if these weapons will be available its just how I designed the ship)
    3 large cargo tankers to store the materials collected by the miners
    Large radar array to communicate with the miners and scan the area for enemies
     

     
    Shows the material tanks and the bridge of the carrier
     

     
    The two large turrets and the engine array
     

     
    Size comparison from small miner to carrier (Note: the small miner will seat 1-2 persons)
     
    Thanks for your input
