Eos was the first modernisation of colours, textures and themes across the races. It felt like, Kacylis was naturally an orange, or sand coloured faction with ships that had materials ranging between copper and gold, down to ICE and Ceramic.
Arkaedian ships on the other hand either had dark blue painted hulls, or a tarnished chrome like material with blue and purple highlights.
So team Red vs team Blue? Well, yes, kinda. It’s a simplification that may help people get into the universe without having to understand which 3 of the 6 manufactures work for who.
“This miraculous amalgamation of silica and titanium, shepherd to five dozen vessels that each posses the power of suns, is Asgard.
It is the personification of your will, markers of your domain, with all that lie within it’s shadow defering to your control. – Anon”
Asgard, another capital ship ear marked for a full retrofit. I never quite nailed the rear and the textures on this one. As you can see, this vessel went through a huge number of iterations before I settled on something I felt fit the name
Heavily homeworld inspired.
“The Ashcen was the ceremony that celebrated a Kushauwan Pilot’s the 10th Magniacapra engagement.
The event was the acquisition of “war paint” via the low altitude gravitational assist of Ganarhun I in the Ganarhun system.
Ganarhun I was a Metallic Hypergiant who’s close proximity to it’s star caused it’s surface in daylight, to evaporate prior to being blown by the solar wind into interstellar space. As pilots undergoing the Ashcen transgress through the planets ;bleeding’ atmosphere, metallic vapour condenses and scars hull plating providing the vessel with unique patterns that distingish the pilot amoungst it’s peers.”
Synax444’s work provided most of the inspiration for this piece.
