Thanks guys
New update coming tomorrow:D

@ YIIMM, XRaiderV1.7 & aylaa12:- Sorry guys but there not Viper launch tubes But I do like the idea and you might something based off that idea added onto this ship later on:D

Can you post the reference?

Here is an update for you.

Most of the work on the engines is done, and I've added a little bit more to the flight pods:D

Are you taking some liberty with your interpretation of this design? I was wondering if you were going to maintain the twin engine arrangement and the missile launch tubes?

At present, it doens't look like you are going in quite the same direction as the original.

Another great looking model, ID. :)


now that's something no battlestar's ever had, belly launch tubes, I mean, come on! the trench on the head on the ventral hull's perfect cover for launching vipers.

A couple of fan designs have had underslung flight pods, but not using the trench. Good idea! (Just started making one now)

Only problem with this is the actual handling of the vipers...ie...moving them from the flight pods to the center of the ship, etc. I am assuming that is the 'trench' that is being talked about.

I was also thinking that the armament should be more evenly distributed along the length of the ship insead of being clustered. The clustering of the weapons increases the possibility of one hit destroying a large amount of offensive/defensive weaponry.

I think this is one of the key differences between Pegasus and Galactica.

Well I think this ship is another one to add to Ice Dragon's Fleet of Brilliant Ships and Work of Art!

Oh well I'm imagining the flight pod actually being in that trench on the underside of the ship, rather than having one on each side of the ship.

someone once made a chopjob gunstar that had a hanger pod integrated exactly like that, it was a retractable job though.

ship was called titan, i think...

used parts off the galactica class battlestar, i might add...

Hello:
That is a very cool model indeed and I am looking forward to see it completed:D, and that leads to the question: will you also try to make the other Minerva class variations?
I also liked very much your communications array. Keep it up!:thumb:

A new update well be coming in the next few days:D

Hi scbypwr, I have keeped much of the original design in my ship but also I wanted to make it a little different, ie making the engines into 4 large engines instead of 4 twin engines, as for the missile launch tubes I decided to place them in the hull of the main body of the ship much like you would find on a moden sub:D
I also think that I made a ship that would fit very nicely in with the reast of the Minerva class variations.


someonene once made a chopjob gunstarhat hadaa hangeger pod integrated exactly like that, it was a retractable job though.
I to have seen that design but can't remember where:D

question: will you also try to make the other Minerva class variations?

it is possible that I might but I can't say for sure:D

Ok it's now time I got back in to building some BSG stuff, so here is the start of a new Battlestar.

http://i138.photobucket.com/albums/q278/Ice-Dragon_photos/blender%20ships/BSG/th_UnknownBattlestar.jpg (http://s138.photobucket.com/albums/q278/Ice-Dragon_photos/blender%20ships/BSG/UnknownBattlestar.jpg)
it's not as big as the Galactica but bigger then the Valkyire. I still need a name for this ship so any help with that would be good:D

next up is the BSG Passenger Liner which I have now finished.

up next is the Cybele which is seen in the flim BSG The Plan, it's based of the Scylla

Hello:
Well, this is indeed a huge BSG update... together with the Battlesta Ouroboros' update makes this day a great BSG day:D.
About your new ship, I may wait for it to be developed some more unless you already have an idea of it's mission profile (besides of kicking Cylons:devil: ).
And I re-atched the battle of the Ionian Nebula and the Cybele indeed appear there, so it is not a design that only came from the movies (Razor and The Plan).
I look forward to see more.

Off-topic: This is my post number 123 XD

The fleet pic is particulary awesome, I like the all new additions been there. And the Mark6 Viper is gorgeous (and kinda cute if you ask me :D ).

it's not as big as the Galactica but bigger then the Valkyire. I still need a name for this ship so any help with that would be good:D


:) Well since the Valkyire is about 700 meters long and Galactica about 1400 meters, there is a lot of room in between. Could you be more specific? At the first sight it seamed to me that it was as long as the Valkyire, but then I saw the launch tubes, and decided that it's bigger, somewhere in the range of the Skinfaxi. Also, how will it's guns going to look like? We can decide about the name later.

mladen225
25th Nov 2009, 17:54
And, If I may suggest, this Battlestar would look better in the size range of the Valkyire... :)
I like the Valkyire, specially the creations found on this site, but I think that it's layout of guns makes no sense. Those guns can hardly move at all (well in my opinion).

Well, this is just great, it is like a Colonial version of Heavy Weapons Platforms we can find in some Star Trek games (specially modded versions of Armada2 :D ) and I must say that it sure looks devil-ish:devil:.
Besides of this version and the HQ version, will you also make a much lighter one? maybe to be deployed in far away trade routes to help civilian ships againts pirates or something?... it is just a suggestion:p.

nice touch on the anti fighter station if you have a warstar planned soon let me suggest that you check out a warstar I saw here is an old thread but the ship is fine and may provide ideas its the agamemnon I really don't remember who did it but it was nice who knows maybe perhaps in the future you can build the stealth viper from the episode hero I never seen anyone give it a try with your skill I'm confident it will be a hit to remember jajaja great work

Hello:
The station looks amazing! it is the kind of design one would expect to see on a starbase or an outpost. And with those guns, I would be very careful if attempting an attack :D .
I am looking forward to see your three new stations in a comparison pics with other ships (like your famous fleet pics) or maybe with ships like a Valkyrie too :p .
Keep it up!:thumb:.

Ah, right you are... I was going to say they looked a bit like mine, but I think he did the Beserker before I did mine. Curious now Ice, did you also base yours off WWII anti-fighter turrets?

Lovely station, Ice-dragon! Got a question though - how come you haven't installed all the anti-fighter turrets? It looks like half of them are missing, since there are empty turret foundations on the inner sections of the saucers....

Also, there's a typo in your image title overlay thingy - it reads "Permiter", rather than "Perimiter". Ooops... :-)

Other than that, wow. Just... wow. :D

Cheers,

Some facts about this Image
The size of this Image is 5,000 x 2,100
The fleet is now sitting at 3,100,826 polys:D
This Image took 20 miniutes to render.


hey, would you have larger renders of the zodiac class battlestar?as soon as I have some time off I'll sort out some nice big renders for you:D


Curious now Ice, did you also base yours off WWII anti-fighter turrets?I did have a look at WWII anti-fighter turrets for the design when I first built them:D

how come you haven't installed all the anti-fighter turrets? It looks like half of them are missing, since there are empty turret foundations on the inner sections of the saucers....
I did remove half of the anti-fighter turrets because some of them were facing in to the middle of the station and the others just weren't need to keep the station defended.

there's a typo in your image title overlay thingy - it reads "Permiter", rather than "Perimiter". Ooops... :-)I guess that will teach me to title my pics at 4am :D

Thankyou all for your comments.

here is a little something new, The Vallahar Repository.

http://i138.photobucket.com/albums/q278/Ice-Dragon_photos/Consepts/th_VallaharRepositorypic2.jpg (http://s138.photobucket.com/albums/q278/Ice-Dragon_photos/Consepts/VallaharRepositorypic2.jpg)

it's based off Ragnar Anchorage with some of my midguard station thrown in:D
it can dock 6 Galactica Type Battlestars in the middle ring and more ships lower down.

somacruz145
15th Jan 2010, 17:27
Great design and modeling as always Rob ! :thumb: I like the fact that it's taller than most of the stations out there. Is this the finished model or will you be doing something more with the model ?

Chiletrek
15th Jan 2010, 19:35
Hello:
That is an interesting design, the Ragnar-like rings should give it a very canon Colonial feel.
Maybe as a suggestion, you may do it like the Midguard station, but it could dock the biggest battlestars too? after all, your Pegasus, Zodiac and the other big guns you have do need a place to take a refuel, rearm or simply just dock every once in a while :D
Keep it up!:thumb:

BolianAdmiral
15th Jan 2010, 21:03
Looking great, Rob! Are there going to be any more greebled areas?

Just a side note, this station is from my "Battlestar Urantia" fanfic. I asked Rob if he'd be interested in designing the station, and he very kindly said yes, so again, thank you, Rob! The Vallahar Repository is a Colonial munitions depot orbiting Leonis.

EDIT: Rob, the larger Battlestar docking would be great, as the Urantia is a Raven-Class ship, so she's bigger than Galactica, but smaller than Pegasus.

Ice-Dragon
15th Jan 2010, 22:26
Thanks guys,

I still have loads more to do to this station, as for docking bigger ships then the Galactica you don't need to worry about that as you'll be able to dock the Battlestar Zodiac in to the docks;)

I'll be paneling the rings tomorrow with abit of luck:D

nuBSG fanfic "Battlestar Urantia" - The Trek BBS (http://trekbbs.com/showthread.php?t=46622)

Just a heads-up... when I originally wrote the story, the Urantia was a Valkyrie-Class ship, but in the final version I'm working on now, it's a Raven-Class.

If you arranged each ship with a station in the rear if an image it'd be a fleet on it's own without having to duplicate a single model, you include duplicating a model and wham!

this is great work ice it would be nice to add more ships docked in it and as a backstory like the ragnar anchorage this could be a distant outpost behond the redline as a secret last resort in case of a mayor cylon invasion to help colonial ships regroup after something similar to what happened in the series

Hello:
I agree, your new station is just awesome :thumb:.
For the way it looks, and for it's background info, I can say that it is an Anchorage and Fleetyard all-in-one.
Now if you have this one as main station and with some Midgard class stations nearby, it would be like a BSG version of Star Trek's Fleetyards above Utopia Planitia :devil:.
keep it up!

Hello:
That... is... simply amazing..... *faints*

*unfaints*... as I was saying, that is trully amazing, I love how you made the room for ships like the Valkyrie, that means other ships of similar size (like the Cygnus) could dock there too while bigger ships can dock in the upper tiers and minimize traffic problems :) .
Keep it up! :thumb:

Aardwolf
22nd Apr 2010, 02:38
Looks pretty cool, but I'm noticing some significant unevenness in the amount of detail on things. Of course, some parts might be more armor than greebles, but even as such, a lot of the structures underneath the three discs look kind of un-detailed.

Still good though!

Jimi James
22nd Apr 2010, 20:56
I would imagine that parts of the station that aren't as detailed, probably aren't finished yet.

In any case, the station is awesome and quite inspiring. Including the various battlestars, gives it a great sense of scale, showing just how large the station truly is. And out of everything in this thread, I think this station may be the best and by far my favorite piece. Makes me want to get to work on some of the ideas I've had for a station of my own.

gthompsn

@ Aardwolf, Jimi James & gthompsn:- The station is finished ( building wise ) as it was going to be added in to a game mod so I was trying to keep the polys down BUT as it stands th poly count is to high for that so I might re-turn to the station and add more paneling and details but for some time:D

@ Starship :- this is a really cool looking ship I'll add that to my list of ships to buils:D


The Cygnus Class is one of the most interesting ships I have seen here. Unfortunately, It wasn't meant to carry Vipers. It could do so if it could take many Viper landings before it would leave the battle. That is however not possible because it's landing deck is turned 90 deg to the direction of the movement of the ship, it's not the best layout for rapid landings. If you would rotate the new additions 180 deg, so that they face to the rear, the Cygnus could retrive Vipers in battle. Also since only the Viper need to make rapid landings (the colonial shuttles and the raptors can jump out ) the landing strip does not need to be that big at all. If you look at the Cygnus Mk I and Mk II all you need to do is to add a small inverted landig strip at the bottom of the ship. The entrance would be exactly in front of the engines and the strip itself on the ceiling of the deck above the lover turrets.

This are some thoughts I have about this class.

15th Jun 2010, 16:37
Hello:
What can I say? I really like your updates!, I specially like the Resurrection ship (but something tells me you may not be surprised with me saying that :p ), maybe you need more Cylon ships: like the Baseship and maybe even the Resurrection Hub too :devil: .
The Cygnus MKIII is most interesting, the section of Valkyrie-style pods seems to fit very well, too bad it had to sacrifice some firepower (valkyries guns look nice for anti-fighter guns), but this ship may be a more specialized fleet support unit, to give an element of surprise with it launching Vipers to support Battlestars during combat.
Keep it up! :thumb:.

Congratulations for your 200th page! *jumps in joy*, and I hope there will be at least 200 more:devil:.
I had no idea the Resurrection ship was that big, maybe you took it from what was seen in "The Plan"? Because I have seen other Cylon fleet images and Ressy is much smaller. But the model rocks.
I am also glad about the dimentions of the Tauron Defense HQ (maybe you can also give the dimentiuons for the huge Repository?)

My computer here at work can only display a portion of the biggest station since all the rest of the photo is off the edges of the monitor. Stretching is just makes it look wierd.

Thanks again and it's nice to see you coming up with new designs.

Ice-Dragon. Your designs are as good as, or better than, anything ZOIC put onscreen in 6 years of the show's run. Official.

Congrats on the 200th page. Now get back to work.
