    The Warrior Class Frigate has been updated.

    Turion Colonial Guard Warrior Class Frigate

    The biggest part of this refit is the upgraded hangar system.

    The hangar now has the same functions as the Prospector cargo bays allowing it to auto deploy all craft from the bay with a single button. Upon exit the hangar then automatically resets so that ships can dock again.

    SOOO bit of a lull but i'm working on the Corsair again.

    Still wasn't happy with the front, it just seemed sooo...forced? Anyways gutted it and redid it and am way happier with it now.


    Gotta tweak still but eh.

    Just add some armor plates 5 m behind the tip of the nose and it will look even better. Just add some more detail, even just some paint might be enough.

    With there being a small smidgen of hope for the game again I've decided to go back to work on the station for the faction.

    Also I created an actual Turion Republic flag type logo.

    For now it's mono but we'll see what happens later.

    In keeping with the Turion theme of "Excessively robust armor and defensive measures" the hangar now has 3 forms of entry protection.

    In addition to the blast door the hangar is also now covered in a watery shield that allows matter to pass through but prevents the escape of gasses such as essential life support.

    Behind the first shield is a second shield referred to as a Hardlight Barrier which draws its power from it's own generator located to the left of the hangar doorway inside. On top of these security additions the external docking rails on the hangar are covered in plex-doors to prevent unsanctioned docking attempts externally.


    Additionally more details have been added to the hangar walls and a cargo bay has been completed and is already stocked with some ordinance.

    Oh man, sorry if I'm later and necroing the thread, but this tank idea of yours is awesome... A recolor of my small mech and we could have a nice start for a ground platoon with armored support.

    Nah you're not necroing, i'm just really bad at updating my threads often.

    Speaking of...

    Production on the station continues as I have built a small factory floor off of the cargo bay.


    ^ Entry / Exit to Cargo Bay

    ^ Empty Floor




    ^ Filled Floor


    Factory floor from overhead walkway.

    I have now begun work on a shuttle repair bay over the existing cargobay area.



    This is the lift that will allow access to the bay from the outside.
    Progress has also begun on the command and control deck beside the exit of the bay.

    Nice work so far on the station! I love the cat-walks on the factory floor. The shuttle repair lift is a good touch, are you planning for the shuttle to be saved with the station BP or have the repair lift cleared?

    The Repair lift will probably be left open however you'll be able to find multiple shuttle variants within the hangarbay.

    Further progress on both the repair bay and hangar bay have been made.

    I felt the hangar was still just a little bare especially on the flooring side so I added some asymmetric detailing and pop up blast shields that not only can serve a practical function of providing cover for defending against boarders but also add some RP value as well.

    I also decided to go ahead and install the first set of rail doors for the cargo bay.

    Also because one of the Turion's lore traits is having multiple redundancies and measures in place to maximize their security the doorway also comes with an emergency roll down Plex Door



    As for the repair bay I have added an overhead rail crane and a large cargo lift that drops down into the cargo bay.
