    Hello Fondor Fans

    hope your all well

    Sorry that i have not been keeping you all up-to date with the Fondor Shipyards due to because of final assignments for my uni work, and my gaming laptop's mother bored braking down and now fix and family assistant, i have been very busy man haha but we will get there so here we are some screen shoots of my progress,

    1) all hangers are completed and finish with access to fighters
    2) working on corridors as we speak getting them to connect ect
    3) upgraded the communication dish " i was not happy with the first one and made a better one"
    4) re visit docking clamps " for some odd reason the clams have gone into the arm extenders dont know why but there you go Hah
    5) gravity bug issues i have notices that the gravity when dock to the shipyards effect the star destroyer which is good but some times when going to it it puts me upside down so im walking on the selling hahah
    6) added Sinner Sat alight hanger work spaces ( being fondor making the snider sat alight i made a rial spaces for them this would make scenes seem that the shipyard make them in the first places}

    (ALL MOST FINISH )

    after the inters is completed the next step will be to copy the it then past it on to a ship core you may be asking why well because of the angles of the docks are on a 45 ish angles i felt that it will not work right and look right so this will be the way to get around it then the next part will be to connect the ship copy corridors with the mane station giving a complete station as it is in the game

    thank you with all your support and comment they help me keep motivating me and making me want to complete this faster

    Kind regards

    This is awesome! I like the energy shield you have around the faction block, I never thought about that.
    thanks Knjarr for your words, the idea for this was form game that i have played in the past the core room was inspired by Jedi outcast the mission was the Shield generate room aboard the doom giver mission, the cargo room was form Star wars Shadows of the empire Untitled1.jpg Untitled.jpg

    HI all

    hope your well

    a very quick update for you on the Fondor Shipyards so far so good the a lot of maths and exterminating time on this has final pad off , here a quick look with the ring so far and my i add that copy this onto a ship core was a pain due to the fact that starmade dose not like Big builds copy's so i had to do it as chicks of 8 block height at a time but it final getting there

    im adding the props details on as we speak and fixing arise that did not mirror propyl
    hope you will enjoy and ill keep you updated the best i can

    kind regards

    After doing some initial calculations, I've managed to get the parts in the right thirds, but sadly the joints are not lined up properly. On the screenshots you'll see that the anchoring top part is fine connecting to the other 2, but where those other 2 join is not quite right. I'm not sure if it might have something to do with trying to allow for odd numbers and non-straight lines which is difficult enough in Starmade. If anyone has any suggestions I'd really appreciate it.

    You may be using regular symmetry for building, which places the mirror split plane directly on the middle of a block. It may be worth your while to use even-symmetry, which places the mirror split plane on the edge of a block. That way, the two non-cardinal sections can meet at a singular point (instead of one whole block) and radiate from there. Note with even-symmetry, your cardinal-facing section will be an even-number of blocks wide, instead of odd. At the scale of this build, it shouldn't make much of a difference at all.

    Otherwise, if it's just a matter of joining the two non-cardinal sections with a rounded line, it might benefit you to "pull" those sections up on the circle a bit, on their respective side. They would no longer be at the exact right angle (120 degrees and 240 degrees, respectively), but they'd get a bigger distance between them for a distance more in-line with the distance between them and the cardinal section.

    Option #2: To avoid fighting third-sections vs. cardinal directions in Starmade, simply upgrade your structure to have four cardinal sections, instead of only 3. Not quite as Star-Wars-y as three sections, but you would no longer be fighting the game engine for your sanity.

    Hey all hope you are well

    been working very hard with assessment work , sorry that i have not posted in a long time but this is just a quick update on were i am with the shipyard, because of the lagged gaps i waned to fill them up and that means i had to stretch the station a bit more, this mean ill have a wider hangers to work with the fighter will be the same and will have dock tug to repair the ships you will see more clearly what i have been doing the screen shoots and have more an idea i had to response the station and strips the prop parts to attach to the ship version in order to have the 3 part of the the full carnal. i will have to go back and more the same alterations on the man Station as well do not worry this project is not and will not be dead i am more coming this far i want to finish it properly, ones this Project is complete depending on the universe Update i will work on the XQ-Platforms 1-6 Form Tie Fighter PC Game if the universe update is come after or before i finish fondor at some point i will be making Kurt Drive-yards but ideally i want to see if the Scale of the plaints will go up more to relic scale

    Kind regards
