Blender! One ov the best 3d programs ever - it is free (download it now), open source (mod it out however you want), cross platform (runs on unix, windows, and mac), lightweight (only 5mb), fast and stable (run on a pentium 1, never crashes), and has a huge community(over a million downloads). It does have a high learning curve, but that is only because it uses a unix-like interface. If I recall, it is the only 3d modeling program with a built in game engine - so that you can test your creations very easy.

If you have ever used the gimp, you would feel right at home (the gimp uses a unix like interface as well)

Hey Mort, what was the pixel sizes for a Corvette Cruisers, Advanced Cruiser and Colony Ships? *I know you scale down most of the ships/wings/etc, but surely you have the originals lying around on your HD somewhere...

I only scale down the fighters. Everything else is the same size.

Just a concept faction i thought of : A aliens species known simply as "The outsiders". Man knows very little about this race other than it's been in space for a very,very long time. they come from beyond the galatic halo-zone, looking for "the source of creation"(alien religious concept). thier soceity is the human equivalent of a deathcult. The outsiders generally ignore humans, calling them "petty heretics", but for some reason unknown they are becoming aggressively xenophobic. apparently they are migrating enmass, showing up on deep-space scanners as a huge wave moving towards the human home galaxy.


tell me what you guys think of it. i would have pictures up but i havent finished drawing them. I made up this species while i was in school ( i had finished a test early.) :)

I like the idea ov alien 'source' worshipers.

'The source of creation' aka 'Source Energy' is the force behind magik/psionics. Now if the outsiders have/are 'Sourcers' themselves is another question. It could be beyond their perception, or they could be active in its use.

I'd like to know more - I'm assuming they are a spacefaring race - but what is their technology like?

Aeth'n 'Hydra' equivalent

Aeth'n 'Wraith' equivalent
http://www.xhrit.com/Naisoft/images//Uploads/alien_ship3r.bmp


Aethirhan Support Ships

http://www.xhrit.com/Naisoft/images//Uploads/alien_carriershipr.bmp

Slightly off topic, how come I can't display BMPs as Img's? -for the Mods/Admins i guess...

Now I just need to figure out what the Aethirhan version of a Mothership would look like... :lol:

Wow! That thing is scarey.

Why can't it just be made a special rule/victory condition that when some one builds an Aethirhan Advanced Battlecruiser then the game just ends. That ship is to threatening looking, nobody would be foolish enough to try and fight it. Everyone would just surrender!

Still not quite scary, doesn't look very mean. But it looks like it would be very agile.
