    PROGRESS UPDATE POST #52



    Not much progress just yet on the fleet flagship revealed last time.

    But my two most sophisticated mining/salvaging ships went through an overhaul, bringing them up to a better shape than ever!


    IF YOU WANT ONE: Zircon-class Asteroid Miner

    Low-effort finish on the flagship's nose section, recolored turrets, plus a group photo with the little guys above:

    PROGRESS UPDATE POST #53



    The destroyer-class, flagship-role vessel of my fleet project is finished and published: download here.

    After having completed it, and in search for a good name for both it and the whole fleet, I realised that my plans included seven ships.

    So I went for naming the fleet after the Seven Sisters of Greek mythology, and chose to distribute their names among the ships so that the descending ranking of the ships by size/mass corresponds to the descending ranking, by apparent luminosity, of the stars in the Pleiades cluster (excluding Pleione and Atlas, the mythological parents of the Pleiades sisters):

    Destroyer Flagship = Asterope (brightest)
    Freighter = Celaeno
    Mass Transportation Craft = Taygeta
    Frigate = Merope
    Miner = Maia
    Corvette = Electra
    Fighter = Alcyone (dimmest)

    None of the remainder are even started as of now, but each should be easier to build than this girl.
