Aww i thought that post was going to be the new image(s) lol ^^

 

Oh .. but looking at the time i guess its not going to happen till tomorrow for you guys... B my time (im from ireland) the first post was yesterday, but by the forums time it was "today".

The eu english speaking forums are dead and since there isnt any point in splitting the community further im here to annoy you all :]


You and your friends may have preferred certain features from MoO1 or MoO2 .. or perhaps even MoO3 but that does not mean everyone prefers it that way.

Perhaps you could think of some amazing alternative that could enhance the game in new areas, making it more enjoyable for everyone!

Please be creative and open minded when posting, we all want this to be the best game it can be.

It was today after all yay!!

 

And wow... They look epic. I love em. Is that two different ship arts for each size? I wonder if they are both combat ships, I guess one could be for freighters or something like that.

 

I loved how choosing a different colour in MoO2 gave u different ship art, so you could choose your fav style.. but I preferred how each race type had its own style in MoO3.

This seems to be the best of both worlds!

Well, same critique as before. No idea which part of the ship is front/back, especially for those on the left. Engine glow would have been nice and I presume outline selection of the ships during mouse-over would also matter. Just for fun, I brought them into PS and did some color shifting.

 

 

Other than the purple and violet ships that don't show up as well against the background, the rest looked fine.

Not a bad start. I really hope we will have more than 2 style options per class though.

Dude, they are epic, all of the them!! Wow... i hope i can chose colours like that now. So damn epic.

You have set the bar high for them hehe. It isnt a hard thing for them either tbh, a lot of big games do this for their armies.

Hehe, i love that title!

 

Before i go into the ship arts though, i have a request and question for you Olmeca.

  1. Can you explain the two different images for each ship class a little? Im not sure what they exactly represent.
  2. You said that these are concept pieces. Im wondering if these are renders of 3D assets? Or if they were flat images made to look 3d. Could be either really, but its the battleships that have me wondering now.

Now then, i must start with saying that im happy with simply having more than 1 visual for each ship class, though i gotta say that i think the lower tiers should have more variations than the higher tiers. It seems logical to assume that we will be seeing a heck of a lot more frigates than battleships in a single game. Even in the end game, i could build 3 battleships, or 18 frigates. Each has its benefits and draw backs. 

Even at the expense of having 1 visual for the battleship class and above. The work done already isn't wasted either, just reallocate the ship art done to another race. Maybe a little remodeling so it has less faces, so that it can be minimized and used as a smaller ship class.

 

All that nagging stuff aside....

 

WOW i love these!

 

The cruiser on the left looks strange, a little transport-ish? Which isn't a bad thing at all.

The one on the right though, Someone hit that with the epic stick alright! You can tell its a bulrathi ship straightaway, it looks like a short beefcake - a stout dwarf of a ship. Just as i always imagined the bulrathi really, space dwarfs merged with reptile bears.

 

The battleships however... these are the best looking ships we have seen so far, no doubt.

The one on the right is the most conventional looking Bulrathi ship we have been shown looking almost humanoid (if you use the MoO3 way of grouping species ship arts).

And also a little like the Sova carrier?

 

The one on the left ... like the previous cruiser it looks like a beefcake and just oozes ... muscle, brining immense fire power to a battle.

Of all the ships ive seen so far though, this is the one that looks as though it could be perhaps ... backwards? I feel as though im looking at the engines here. With the slanty section in the middle looking like the bridge, facing the wrong direction haha.

 

All in all .... ohhhh yea. cant wait to smoosh these ships good with superior spells.. erm technology.

30 mins tops ? Its just a hue shift in photoshop. Is there any violation of forum rules ? I'd like to do 1 en masse for all the ships when the previews are over. So everyone can see at a glance what colors to expect.

I think a high bar is necessary for a legendary game, wouldn't you agree ? ;)

 

Yeah, I also agree...the battleships look nice out of the 4 available. How many types of ships are there per race ? iirc, MoO1 had 18 per race ? So 7 more pics to follow ? kekeke

Hmmm, shockingly similar to the battleships. In fact I think that the battleships look a little more intricate which is strange as they would be smaller ships making it harder to notice the curvatures on the ships compared to the Titans.

 

Similar isnt nesecarily a bad thing, racial uniform ship design makes sense, I'm just not sure how great an idea it is to have such big important ships looking so fairly similar.

Check out the DoomStar!! A shame i was wrong about ship sizes though, seems doomstars are tiny after all and still not deserving of the rip off name. Oh well it looks epic, thats enough for me.

 

aaand.... sorry to steal your thunder Olmeca :P
