Strategic Combat Logistics by Bo-Fascadale Strategic Combat Logistics by Bo-Fascadale
Turns your humble Frigate into a Medium Weapon wielding monster with boosts and links. But has almost no offensive capabilities of its own.

Such talent should not be wasted.

Set your course to Relic.com or Homeworld:Complex to put your talents to work in a Homeworld Mod.

Looks like a bastardised Millenium Falcon . . . .

Nice work though

Ha Ha Ha :D :oops:

Totally unintended. Was based on a split/stretched Hurricane hull with bits added. Ho hum

Working up on a fully detailed new model of it - Will have to do my best to eradicate that 'Star Wars'iness ;)

Cheers

Cheers Guys :)

Been pointed out to me, since I forgot to mention it, that I should clarify: that the planet is a grab from EVE. Can give exact name if you wish. Except it'll be less cloudy. Some of the clouds I did borrow/cut/paste/change from an old Skylab? pic although heavily modified by me. Credit where due.

Good luck to the Semi finalists

This is a good design based around a simple shape. It does fit in well with the Minmatar design.

Don't forget T3 is a ship that you assemble to your own liking. Great design though.

Aye it was that strategic flexibilty I had in mind. Only had 3 evenings free to design it sadly so didn't have time to flesh out other configs but yes, that was the idea.

The ship above would be I guess configured for Projectile Weapons and Armor Rep bonuses and support and boost those stats in those frigates that its linked with.

Other specializations could have Shield Rep bonuses and Missiles if you wished (or Shield Rep and Guns for a fleet of Jags), or pure ewar, a deep cover stealthed covop support base maybe, or a dedicated fast tackle hub with 6 frigate spider tank. An Anti-Frigate/Inty ship with tracking and speed boosts? A gatecamp buster? Or a mix. Adaptable and dangerous. :)

I didn't want it as flexible as T3 cruisers as essentially it only has one role: Frigate support and boost. But that role could be rich and varied.

Playing around with some other hull configs and textures atm.

I know the feeling of not enough time. My design looks pathetic compared to some of the designs I've seen.

But not too complicated :) These are just ideas I'm floating not what I want from the ship necessarily. Other than the ability to boost linked but individually piloted frigates. Taken all together the Frieya and it's Frigates resemble what is in effect a 'dispersed' BC/BS with support.

The depth comes from playing the ship in game hopefully.
I've noticed in games that massively complicated combat systems with loads of player options and what-not, whilst fun and absorbing to individuals and great in RPGs etc; can end up being a bit impractical and cumbersome in MMOs - almost invariably end up as specific cookie-cutter builds.

The concept should be simple but allow complexity not the other way around I guess..

Oops just noticed a typo - That should be a 10% bonus to Tracking Links not a -10% bonus :/

I imagined this ship to have its own specialised type of Frigate originally. But ran out of time to really nail it and come up with some designs. Anyway, fleet frigates need some love and like the idea of a 'fleet-in-a-can' :)
