Re: Xortek Corporation

I changed my mind, and the thing from the previous post is now the torpedo launcher (I moved the accelerator coils further into the barrel):

Re: Xortek Corporation

Working on the Xortek cruiser, "Ifrit". It is armed with a number of plasma mortars (nee plasma capsule cannons) and a big plasma beam cannon. It's almost done, just need a little bit of detail in the rear. The ship is 275 m, top to bottom. https://i.imgur.com/v9j1WrZ.png https://i.imgur.com/1Sn0lKy...

Re: Xortek Corporation

Two ammo types, plasma torpedo and plasma capsule (torpedo being the larger/powerful variant). Both are magnetic cages encasing a blob of plasma. The little red lenses are sensors

Re: Transcendence GitHub repos merged

That's awesome, it'll simplify my workflow a lot. In particular, `git grep` now will function fine without guessing which repository is which.

Xortek Corporation

Can you get heat stroke in the coldness of space? Xortek Corporation certainly has figured out how to do that. Work on plasma-based technology left its employees a little bit unhinged, but that's just perfect for a pilgrim that abandoned their family based on a vague dream! This mod consists of two ...

Re: Xortek Corporation

A bit more progress on the foundry (this is still at in-game scale): https://i.imgur.com/aHtYZfj.png I think it's almost done, I might add more texture to the heat pipes and the end nubs of the radiators.

Re: Xortek Corporation

Interesting point about the 'corvette' designation. I was thinking more of Homeworld corvettes which are not particularly large (just fatter) compared to fighters in that game, but I see in Transcendence a corvette is something like the Minotaur which is 4x as large as this ship... I'll adjust it.

Thematically, the corporation and its ships focuses on heat management: there'll be lots of radiators, plasma based weaponry etc. I plan for the stations to sell custom weapons a...
