Default SciFi - Oscilus

MKF imspired me to tackle an idea I had. Using a different method this time. Boxing stuff up for basic shapes to see how I like the overall design. Not so used to sketch ups but I may have to learn that as well. This is the base shape. The back part in light blueish will be a massive drive unit (Star Wars unspired). The lower blue section is a secondary hull and the white section is a primary hull. I have a lot to think through and hoping MKF chimes in with his engineering ideas.

Ok so it is facing to the right. I would look at how the blue ribbed bit will interface with the upper and lower lavendar hull. It is a bit early to crit too much but while you block in imagine how the framework would be within the blocked in forms and what spaces your working with. I am guessing youll have a drive core stack that works machine rooms and spaces towards the drive cone array. None of this will be evident in a block out phase so you might already be thinking about these things.

Originally thought of the assembly scenes in Gunbuster of the Exelion and the much larger ship from the closing film (ep6) But not finding good online images showing these scenes but this yamato one sorta shows what I was thinking about the core reactor to engine cone array. Just the Yamato only has the one with 2 sublight drives.

link only site wont let me, grr stupid site wont even allow that. need to locate a better source or host it.

Here capped them from the anime, click to enlarge.




intent in the images it to illustrate the drive and core systems with the hull being built over them.

Atomic rockets is another place full of ideas and inspiration. It does poopoo some of the classic scifi ship fun.

Ok here is that yamato image,

funny googling for it my yamato WIP images show up heh.

Sadly it is from the 2220 art book something I never got around to getting. But it is to depict again core components etc. Not that this is something to follow just idea fuel.

Thanks Koi, I really do have a lot more to work out. I had thought of a sort of bizarre drive core but after seeing it blocked in decided I didn't like the overall design of it. So, I am still working that through. I will have to give some thought to the weapons at the same time. I think. Right now, I'm still exploring the overall design. I might try and flesh out the basic cone array to get a better idea of that area. Maybe it will help me solidify the drive core. I like the secondary hull idea but it isn't quite fitting at the moment. A lot of tinkering and way more thought to put in to it.

Ok, trying to work out the cone array and how it fits. Has me rethinking where that secondary hull goes.
