 I was too amused by this one not to get a screenshot: A Repentant-class gunship with a side-mounted Fusionfire. Or maybe only a Mark V. …But still.

 Updating the Bane Starshipwrights in TBR to designs that will make inevitable rerenders much less painful, by which I mean that the longest render of the redesigned collection has an ETA of tomorrow as opposed to mid-February. I figure I might as well show off a couple side-by-side comparisons of the old and new versions, just because:

The new capital ship is definitely a huge improvement - it reminds me of some of the smaller Ares ships. Are the glowing sections supposed to be huge, uninterrupted viewing ports?

 The colors scheme is an artifact from the original incarnation of what wound up sort of evolving into the basis of TBR’s ships, and is what I used for Ares. One of these (insert time period here)s, I’ll update them. And yes, to answer the question; I’m sort of notorious for too-big windows. I’ll deal with that later, too.

Here's a peek at the adventure I've been working on. I expect to be finishing it soon.

That looks a lot better then the old Krual Metropolis (which wasn't bad either).
Looking forward to Renegade 0.3!

That's downright awe - inspiring. Are you using that ship changing mod, or is Krual Metropolis white for some other reason?

It's white because I don't want friendly fire in the adventure (things get pretty crowded). You can disable friendly fire in a ship's AI settings, but for the playership that only applies to the players sovereign - usually &svPlayer. So, the solution is to match the player's sovereign to friendlies or vice versa.

The result is that the adventure actually differentiates between friendlies and neutrals, which is kind of cool.

That's a new approach - it'll be cool to see how it works.

Here is something I randomly drew in MS Paint

The Hand of Domina

Transcendence: Faster Than Light

Here is what the Hand of Domina may look like on the inside. What if we had an FTL: Faster Than Light minigame where the player manages the Hand of Domina as it gets attacked by Penitents?
