On this episode of "Starships" we get a closer look at one of the biggest rivals of the Alkari....hailing from the planet Fieras, the Mrrshan. (IMO I can't tell if they are supposed to be Cat shaped ships or fish shaped ships)

Im with you Olmeca, i dont think this is a very inteligent design as it looks far too similar to the Ichthytosian and the Etherean races from MoO3.

Though i think the ship artwork is beautiful, i gotta say that it doesn't conform to what i think anyone is expecting for the fierce feline race and the needless confusion between ships from a previous title is just ... silly.

However i do imagine that the 3D assets of these ships will convert me 100%, its only the artwork that im not sold on.


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.

Interesting, I like the various ship concepts, so far.

I like the designs at the right. Left is really a bit to aquatic (even though I don't see the MoO3 species there) but the right looks fine and it looks wooden with ivory. I hope the others ships are like that too.

I quite like them so far.  I don't really see the resemblance to the Ichthys ships--those had a decidedly steampunk look about them that I don't see here.  The colors are certainly very close, though.  I don't see a serious danger of confusion.

The ships on the right are my favourites as well. :)

But what comes to the fierce feline Mrrshans, I think they could use a little bit more of that fierce part in them:

 

 

as I would say that kitty is a bit more cute and elegant than fierce. ;)

Moreover, I advise that the tactical combat must be made more player controllable and informative for this to become a proper MOO game.

 

​The long lost formula for space 4X game success = Good tactical combat + good empire management > than just good tactical combat or good empire management alone.

Oh i do like the way you see frigates and destroyers in the bg of that piece! Perhaps a little(or more?) out of scale but still a nice wi easter egg

The next stop on our journey through the Starships is that of the Cruisers and the Battleship...a lot less aquatic looking.

Less aquatic looking?

The cruisers are a whale and a stingray.

The left destroyer reminds me of a gold fish.

Looks like the Mrrshans have been borrowing Titans from the Alkari, eh? 

 

I really like the pyramidal doom star! The Mrrshans have that Egyptian cat feel to them.

Don't get me wrong... I really like the style and designs of the ships... but...

 

NOT for the CATS.

 

These look like they belong to a fish species.

Well, I don't like what looks like finns, so the first two on the left aren't my taste but I like it that the Mrrshan don't have ships that all look like the city, with many edges or even cat like forms. I like the elegant look, especially in the the left battleship. The pyramid doomstar was a must and I am so, so glad that the Mrrshan got what they deserve after the great looking but not fitting Alkari doomstar. All in all, this is my favorite so far.

 

I am looking forawrd to the Titans, I hope for one in the style of the left battleship.

Ok, more like it.  The top one looks like a cat about to attack and the bottom one looks like a claw.  Nicely done

The upper ship is way to aquatic for me. I don't like these bellied, balloonic, airshipical (i don't know if any of these words exist but I am sure you know what I mean) designs, it's too much looking like a fish. The design below is better, it's more broad, the sides look like the'yre part of a ship with canons and the fat bow is a bit like the front of a locomotive. It doesn't amaze me but it's okay and fits the Mrrshan unlike the top.

Actually, the fish-like design is not as out-of-place as you may think. Think about it. The Mrsshans made their ships after something that they find to be good, despite the fact that they may be eating them. The humans made planes after the birds, because it works. Why cant the cats make starships after the ships, if it inspires them? I admit, I expected their ships to look more like Egyptian pyramids or obelisks, or something. But, I learned to appreciate these designs, and the Mrsshan left battleship and top titan I really like.

These are looking great. Now I wonder if you guys will do it like masters of orion 2 where your race equals design of ship but your color equals the color scheme of the vessels. That would be great.
